    My Trip Report

    Well boys and girls as I lay here unable to sleep I figured now was as good as any to start up the pre trip report. I will have tapatalk so there will be pics and I will try to give as many live updates as possible, with the promise of a full trip report when I get home as well. So for now a little pre trip planning.

    The trip is really a whirlwind as I could only get away from work friday - sunday. No big deal though as I managed to snag a couple cheap flights for my girlfriend and I on Allegiant Air. I booked a Paris Luxury Red Room with some freeplay comped just on the Caesars site and with a twitter message to PHVHost I managed an upgrade to a premiere. Probably something very small to him, but meant a great deal to get that view for my girl. Reason being is I am proposing at some point on this trip. No turning back...I have bought a custom ring lol. I have also booked presidential limo to pick us up at the airport, so some cheap champagne on the way to Paris seems like a nice start...Assuming Allegiant is on time.

    Once checked in I think I will play off my freeplay, the proceed to play at some of the many VP bars in that area. My girlfriend has requested that we go and get a "Povert" cocktail from my man Po at the Ballys sportsbook, so that is a definitely possibility. I think the Cromwell bartops and PH Super Times Pay machines will also come into play. Plan that night is to head downtown to the D and GG to see my host Stephen P, maybe a shot of Fireball with Derek Stevens as well, who knows lol.

    I really do have to avoid the shots downtown like last trip where I got homeless drunk, then got a little stabby with my steak knife in Andiamo with Gaggles and BeeeJay. The reason I got to take it easy is I plan on proposing in the secret garden at Mirage Saturday morning. My girlfriend loved it there last trip, so it seemed like a good idea to me. I told her we are going there bright and early when it opens at 10 so it's not too hot! Really I just wanna get there when it's nice and quiet and there's very few people around. Assuming that she says yes plan is to head to Bouchon or Country Club for some lunch. Then some afternoon gambling or the pool. Later that night I got a reservation at Giada at Cromwell and then it's off to NYNY for front row couch seats for Zumanity.

    My flight leaves Sunday morning, so I'm sure I will be on it with very little sleep. Works for me though, makes for a short flight. Last time i was asleep before take off and didn't wake up until landing. Wish me luck! I will message Sonya to move this over on Thursday night.

    Good luck Macker, sure it'll all go well. Did you try contact Secret Garden, if you let them know, you might be able to do something special there after your question?

    I did, but refered to private tours on their site and they had a photographer contracted out to them contact me regarding a one hour photo session for $500+ so really a waste of time.

    Macker, Good Luck. However I do not believe you will need it. Hopefully this short trip will be the one with the best memories

    Good luck! I proposed to my wife on the gondola at V/P, after eating at Canaletto and seeing Phantom of the Opea (her favorite). You'll make once in a lifetime memories this trip!
