    My Trip Report

    Looking forward to this girls trip to Vegas!!

    We're back once again for our quarterly trip to Vegas- this time it's BFF's 40th!! Or should we refer to it as the 11th anniversary of her 29th? Happy birthday BFF!!!! Although it's a milestone birthday, BFF has requested a low key girls trip to Mecca. Sounds just our speed and can't wait to celebrate with the girls!

    The last couple trips we managed to meet up briefly with Evoni and we had a great time!! We were determined to connect our trips this year and we were able to get our dates to work for this trip! Evoni has a fantastic blog (Las Vegas Daze) that I enjoy reading and I often find myself going back for referencing her experiences at various Vegas restaurants and events. We will, of course, be making some trips together to the HL room (where we will be hunting down Pleepleus for his solid management advice), so fingers crossed we will be posting some hand pays!

    We were totally choked our schedules didn't work to make it in for all the festivities around SB! Packer, PPHold, Beeejay, Broncofn and others- we will miss not having you guys around during this trip!!! Hopefully we can get the dates to connect soon!

    The plans-

    We're coming in early afternoon on the 20th, staying at Palazzo. Our offer is comp nights, $700 freeplay, $300 F&B. We're Platinum so we automatically get the limo service with VIP check-in and Platinum lounge access.

    Carnevino for dinner
    Aussie Hunks show at Planet Hollywood
    Blow out at Canyon Ranch
    Yardbird for dinner
    Raiding the Rock Vault show at Tropicana
    Breakfast at Bouchon
    Dinner at either SLS- Cleo / DB brasserie / Tao on last night

    Will otherwise try to fit in:

    Happy hour at Table 10
    Happy hour at DB brasserie
    Happy hour at Tao

    Yes, I know, we plan to eat and drink a lot!

    I'm looking forward to continuing the saga of finding the best blow out experience/results at various LV salons. Included with the hair appointment we get access to the spa facilities at Canyon Ranch, so we will be going a bit early to check it out.

    With a nod to BFF's birthday, we thought we'd try and keep a buzz going by dropping in at various V/P spots to sample different signature drinks. We've been scoping out some drink menu's and will try and hit a bunch of them!

    Another place I hope to remember to check out is Carlos bakery. We walked by on one of our previous trips, and the line was huge. What's with that? The lemming in me needs to go back to see what I've been missing out on. Anyone know what the must-try items are that warrant such a line up? I'm guessing it's cannoli and the lobster tails? In any case, we will check it out and report our findings!

    Last trip we didn’t get any hand pays outside of the one we did as a group HL pull!! Hopefully we will make up for it this trip as despite all the plans to eat/drink, our main focus will be hitting the slots! I’m planning to stick with the TMI style reporting, so if you have things you want to see, please let me know and I will attempt to get the info to the board!


    Cheers everyone……the packing now begins!!

    Have a great time VegasChic & Sis and BFF.

    Sorry I won't be there. 3 trips to Vegas in 2016 already I need a break.

    Looks like a fun time. I"m going to miss having Dinner and drinks with you girls. Have a drink for me.

    I'm sure pleepleus will keep you girls playing slots and hopefully lots of Handpays.

    Best of luck you you girls.

    I can't wait to see all of you tomorrow, and perhaps at baggage claim since our flights are within 5 minutes of each other! Perhaps our limo drivers can have a race to Palazzo. ;) BTW, your offer is better then mine, I'm jealous!

    I'm so excited to have a live trip report to point my friends to so for once they don't have to wait a month to read about it. LOL!

    Packing is going to be done tonight as I'm trying to finish up my last trip report at the moment, I'm such a slacker and easily distracted by almost anything.

    Party time starts in 25 hours!

    I'm looking forward to following along. So nice that you will be able to see Evoni (which means a trip report from her, too, at some point!). I hope there weren't any missing bankroll surprises this time.

    Good luck VC!
    Any changes to gambling amounts or lower slot bets to avoid withholdings that might never be returned (well 3 yrs later...)
