    My Trip Report

    Background information:
    -Just turned 27, mom is 44. This is my 8th time to Vegas. My mom's third time. We've been going together for Thanksgiving the past 3 years
    -Staying at the Palazzo. I travel for my job and was able to get the Palazzo for only 25,000 IHG points (same price as a Holiday Inn)


    Plan:
    -$5,000 BR. Games playing, Poker, Blackjack and Craps. Sports too of course.
    -My mom got a Groupon for a stripper dance class at PH
    -I got a Groupon for the Rio zipline, includes drinks at Voodoo Lounge
    -Rent a car for a day and see the Hoover Dam, neither of us have been there
    -Only meal planned is Sinatras, first time for both. With her class she got a free meal to the Brazilian steakhouse at PH so we'll try that too
    -Fremont Street for a night, she has never been.

    So cool you are traveling with your mom. Sounds like a good trip planned; cool things but you haven't overplanned (like I sometimes too) and you and mom can go with the flow a bit while winning a lot!

    Have a great trip!
    My mom would love the stripper dance class, too! And she's 68...

    Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to you and your mom, Ross!

    I'll be at the V/P on Thursday with my oldest son (I'm 47 and he's a couple weeks shy of 23). This is our 3rd trip to Vegas together. I love that he loves Vegas like I do! Awesome that you and your mom enjoy it too. Have a great trip!

    Have a great trip. I'm looking forward to returning to Vegas in 2016 with my son. We had a great time last year. Good luck!

    Already had my first win. Logged into my Grazie account, it said I had a suite offer, but I figured it would just be some discount rate of $129/nt. Called up and I have 3 free nights with $100 match play. Booked for tomorrow until Wednesday so at me and my mom have separate rooms for a couple of nights.

    Yeah not bad considering I haven't played table games at V/P for over 2 years.
