    My Trip Report

    Friday:
    Flew into vegas on Friday and arrived around 11am local time. Renting a small chevy sonic which was nice and headed to Paris. It was my first time staying at paris and I thought it was good, great location. I couldn't check in early so I drove over to gold coast for cheap buffet. Not the greatest but I got a buffet for 8.50 which included a drink. Stopped by RIO because that's where I normally stay and played my favorite blackjack machine in the high roller room. Put in 100 bucks and bet 50 a hand. Won the first 2 hands and cashed out. Up 100 bucks in 1 min. Back to paris, checked in and called down for a massage at the spa. 160 bucks but well worth it. Ate dinner at mcdonalds by harrahs and then went to bed early. Extremely jet lagged and slept 14 hours.

    Saturday:

    My friend from LA came in and got there around 1. We had lunch at the irish burger joint downtown and then went to Raiding the rock vault show at LVH. If you are a friend of classic rock then this is the show to see. Played some craps at LVH and won 420 bucks. WINNING TRIP!! so far. Drove to harrahs and went to the carnival court club outside. A lot of red bull and vodkas later got back to the room about 3am. Had a blast there and danced without of girls who just wanted to have fun. On a side note the Quads casino looks much better.

    Sunday:

    My buddy drove back home that morning after our gold coast breakfast. Went down to sportsbook and watched football. Lost every bet I made that day. I hate betting on NFL. Down 80 but went to bally's and played in the 5 pm poker tournament, 60 buy in, and came in second 395 dollars!!! Thought since I was up I would go to the improv at harrahs show since I try to make that everytime im in town. Very funny. Decided to go to craps afterwards and lost 300 :(

    Monday:

    Plane didn't leave til 5 so I checked out and drove to excaliber since I had never been there. Looked around and went to new York new York. Played the deal or no deal game and won 180 bucks!! Ate lunch and then saw the THOR 3d at the movie theater behind mgm. Then headed to the airport.

    This was a relatively chill weekend than my normal vegas trips but it is the first time that I have come home ahead and I am proud of that!!

    Ill be back in march for a bachelor party, looking forward to it!!
