One more sleep. Let's Do This! Heading out to the shiny oasis in the desert tomorrow on another solo adventure. Solo by circumstance, not by choice..would love to travel with others but shockingly have no Vegas-loving friends!! Whaaaat?? I know, how is this possible? I've been solo many, many times to Vegas and love the freedom to go with the flow. Truly going for some much needed R&R, maybe pool time if the weather cooperates?? Looks like there are lots of VMBers in town this weekend. I'll be wearing my trusty wristband (thank you, Sonya) so if you see a blonde with the green wrist-bling say hi! Would love to make new friends! Here's the plan- - Flying United EWR to LAS - Staying encore tower suites (casino rate + eUpgrade) - interested to see the new "refreshed" rooms.. - Renting a car with enterprise. - Low Roller $2k bankroll for 4 nights - most of which will be played at craps and roulette tables on the north end of the strip... Maybe BlackJack if I'm feeling lucky. Last trip was in June and came home even/slightly up, which is a trend with me.. Let's see if we can make a significant change to that pattern, shall we? - Room includes 2 buffets every day - not a huge buffet chick but am interested to see the new Wynn Buffet opening this weekend. Will share pics and info on that. - I'm a foodie - so excited to get back to my fav Vegas restaurants (stay tuned) and try some new ones (Sinatra!). Been starving myself of carbs and sugar for a month to prepare for the inevitable carb overload (are there carbs in red wine?) - Encore Spa-hoping my usual massage therapist will be there! - Caesars Qua spa - will do a day pass to check it out. - Casino hopping down the strip (and back up the strip, of course) - Container park - gonna make it there this time..maybe. - Red Rock - off strip local casino action - Fremont casino hopping..maybe if I get up there My right palm has been itchy all day which I believe the superstition is that $$ is coming your way, right?? Well wishes welcomed and appreciated! Time to pack!
