    My Trip Report

    Greetings all,

    Trip #15 incoming - heading out of Cincinnati shortly. This will be my fourth trip report on here, and as always there will be lots of food porn and hopefully some huge poker stacks!

    Itinerary:

    The Linq - 9/20 to 9/23. Comped by my friend "Z" who is tagging along. $80 resort credit and $50 freeplay.

    New York New York - 9/23 to 9/27. Comped by Z as well (nice to have high roller friends) $150 resort credit and $100 freeplay.

    I've never stayed at either of these properties so I'm excited on that front.

    - Life is Beautiful festival this weekend

    - iheart radio festival this weekend also

    - will be checking out TopGolf

    - jabbawockeez show

    - Gordon Ramsay steak Tuesday night

    - other food stops on the list: Beauty and Essex at Cosmo, Fukuburger, Lago, Bouchon brunch and whatever catches our eye!


    Wheels Up in 20 minutes! I hope you all enjoy.

    Touchdown. Smooth flight ahead of schedule. Now to hunt for bags and Uber to the Linq. Interested to see how much you save with Uber. [​IMG]

    $11 for the Uber. Don't know why anyone would ever take a cab again. It is a bit of a trek to the ride share area though.

    Have a good one! I'll be there for the LIB festival this weekend staying at MGM, anxious to be out there already.

    TopGolf is great. Definitely try and snag a bay on the higher floors, makes a world of difference.

    Checked in to our room at the Linq. Not too shabby, rooms are obviously renovated. Small but everything you need. Headed to Chayo for taco Tuesday next.
