This is my first TR so bear with me as I am stuck at work tonight so will fill-in the TR as time allows this evening. Trip was May31st to June 6th. Took my usual early June vaca to Vegas with partner(MD) and met up with my dad and brother in-law(MH) who attend the Jewelry show every year at this time..Flight out was fine on United with emergency row seats but couldn't believe in their brand new 737-900 plane that it had no tvs or even a movie on the 5 hour flight out of Newark... Got into McCarran and took a cab to the Aria...Tried for an upgrade from comped deluxe room but found out the entire hotel was sold out...couldn't believe it so double checked their app and sure enough not a room available..oh well..deluxe room at Aria is fine with us. Used a bellman for the first time in years and must say that was the best 10 bucks in tips one can spend...I will never lug my bags through these huge casinos again... Dad and MH who have been in Vegas for a few days now meet up with us and it's onto the slots...Partner played new Sex & the City multi player game and won some to start then it all went downhill fast...Pennies, nickels, quarters, dollars...didn't matter...no good on any machines...Call it a night after going through night 1's bankroll. Not the start I wanted and if I get the entire TR in...unfortunately it gets no better gambling wise. First full day is some of the worst gambling I can remember... After some coffee and breakfast it's onto the casino..Nothing hit anywhere in the Aria casino. Ran through my birthday FP in some dollar machines to try and get some wins and nothing..Hundreds going real fast at this point so it's back to the room and regroup. Decide to head over to MC to see if this brings any luck. Go and redeem MyVegas 2-1 MC cafe, Whiskey tasting and 2-1 cocktails at Hit bar and 2-1 Big Chill vouchers. Use the MC cafe for lunch..Highly recommend this one..Food was very good..waiters a bit weird..I had the steak and partner had shrimp pasta. His was taken off the bill so about a $20 dollar reward...Play some and nothing..just brutal gambling... Need to head over to MB to meet up with MH and then walk to T&T in the Luxor for dinner...I had a Restaurant.com reward for there..Food at T&T is really good...MH is a vegetarian and had no problem finding good stuff to eat..The queso dip is highly recommended along with shrimp ceviche.. Take a car service back to MC and use the drink rewards at Hit lounge. I had never been there and it is a very nice place just off the casino. MH & MD are the drinkers as I do not drink anymore. The very drunk lady at the bar relentlessly hitting on the nice bartender reminds me of why I don't drink anymore..lol. They enjoyed the whiskey, all single malt shots, and cocktails. I had a $27 cigar(punch something..can't remember the name) that was the finest smoke I ever enjoyed. Not sure what the dollar amounts of those two MyVegas rewards were but somewhere north of $50.. Back to the slots and finally some hits on a hot wheel of furtune 3 wheel spinner thingy...and then a u-spin machine which paid out some to stem the bleeding and then a nice hit on one of those collossus machines but all in all day 2's bankroll disappears during the night. Great trip so far minus the bad gambling..Will continue a little later tonight.
