I've been on the board for years, and have posted details of previous trips, but never a full TR - this just might be the first. With 1 and 3-yr old boys, the Vegas trips have obviously been fewer and further between. Pre-trip details: I had some SW credits that will expire at the end of the month, so I somehow convinced the wife to let me take a short trip. Partner in crime: my buddy T, also with 2 little ones, late 30's, but is flying out from OC. Since my status has obviously lapsed, I turned to MyVegas and have the following: Weeknight room comp Two lunch buffets $30 credit to Heritage Steak Though T is leaning towards Del Frisco's, so the last one may go unused, or we may swap it out. Interesting note was that I looked up TR and booked Linq on a comp, in case anyone else wanted to come along, but canceled it yesterday. BR: $5k (my previous average was about $2k for a weekend), going a little bigger since I don't know when the next trip may be...will be mostly BJ and craps, with a few sports bets sprinkled in possibly. Additionally, what sold the trip was a ticket from the previous SB - a $100 parlay on my Pats and the over - it's pretty faded, so hopefully they will let me redeem it... Fly in Sunday morning, and plan to stop by the Centurion lounge for a snack lunch (mostly liquid ) to get started. I also have some SW drink coupons that expired last week, and have read here that they might honor them if I ask nicely... T arrives at 1pm so we will Lyft to Mirage then (anyone have any issues at McCarran?) Goals: Avoid incarceration WIN WIN BIG (5-figures, enough for a down payment for a Model S - I would then turn to Packer, though he probably can't help since you order those direct) Fly out Monday night. You can thank TBone for inspiring me to do this, as you all know his TR was outstanding!
