    My Trip Report

    I hit it big. Im not much of a big VP player. I play some here and there but its all about slots and Blackjack and roulette. I have a full trip report coming but I wanted to get this out ASAP. I couldnt believe it. i was around like 20 friends and we were all smashed and it just was awsome. it was like $20 under 1200 so tax free!!! i will be playing much more VP now haha. i was talking to two different people and glanced to keep the Q and K of hearts, then i look again and the bar tender was congratulating me, I didnt know why yet hahaha.

    full report coming on this amazing trip to Harrahs in an executive suite (booked during error period but got the room!)

    ++++ ok so I went down there for the Hackers (H4ck3rz) convention over at the Riviera. I have some friends in a band playing for them so I knew it would be a fun trip. they were staying at the Cabana suites at the el cortez and us at harrahs Exect suite. we had two on the pull out couch and me and my lady in the king bed. we made it from phx to our hotel in about 5 hours. was going 80 most of the way :p we brought 2 handles of Capt. and 3 bottles of Stoli and a bottle of absolut and knew that wouldnt be enough. we were ready.

    we get in at about 7pm and check in nice and quick (platinum line FTW) and get set up in the room and head to Albertsons for snacks and mixers and all of that goodness. I always have to eat at raising canes (chicken fingers) its some great stuff. and I swear I saw George Wallace there. he had the hat, the street clothes, exactly as I thought I had seen him in the past. none of my friends cared cause I am the only vegas whore out of the group. he just ate alone, and it made sence he was eating before performing at 10pm. I was a little star struck and it was weird. i knew it was him because he had a beautiful car and I heard his voice saying by to someone who worked there. that was cool. We got back to the hotel and met up with the "Regenerator" crew (band). they had thought they had us all on the guest list for Tryst but to find out there at about midnight they forgot to send the email to the correct person and found out the next day. we got sooo close to getting in (and we are all "professionally" gothed out they were ok with how we looked :p )[​IMG] and we refused to pay to get in. so we sat at the bar right close to it and got some absinthe drinks and hung out watching all of the drunks leave. people kept taking pictures of us it was funny. we looked great and couldnt have fit in any less at the WYNN hotel. then went to the hotel and drank till about 5am.

    so we get up friday around noon and hit up the Rio world buffett. something also I always go to. with the 5 bucks off per person you get at check in, its very much worth the 12 bucks each. always good. then we passed out for another 2 hours and me and my homey had to go to the Riviera to help set up on the penthouse floor
    [​IMG](its a huge ballroom of sorts, lots of windows) [​IMG] it was called "the Gathering" and was a great time, everything went as planned and it was a great turnout. then went downstairs to the Black and White ball still bumping. that was a good time.[​IMG] Head down to harrahs again and get the amazing 5.99 steak and egg breakfast. one of the crew passed out on the table. about 6am came and it was time for all of us to pass out again.

    Saturday we went up to the Panda/chip/pizza/mcdonalds food court and all had sunglasses on eating in quiet time. it was funny. we pretty much did the same thing and passed out in the room and then starting drinking again. hung around with the kids and then we went to downtown and met up at el cortez. did some drinking there and then went to the beauty bar for some bands playing then it was off to Riviera again for more of the Defcon. spent time going from the Skyboxs, Penthouse, and floor rooms until about 0300 and then had about 20 of us go to the bar in the center of the casino. thats where it happend. I was very drunk talking to people on both sides of me just playing to get some free drinks. I didnt even know what I was doing, and kept the king and queen of hearts hoping to pair one of them. then I turned around and about a minute later the bartender gets my attention and tells me, and I see the screen. It was definatly the best moment I have had in a while. my biggest win previous to this was like 400 so this was huge for me. I was screaming and getting all pumped and ordered about 12 drinks for my friends (bartender said dont worry about it) and had everyone around me. it makes the win that much bigger because its not like your a lone and hear one guy say nice job. i have everyone jumping on me and taking pics and all. it was amazing. definatly a moment never to forget..[​IMG]. we then took a limo with about 12 of us to Hooters for the 25cent wings. (well worth the limo ride) made it with 20 minutes left to order (0540) and enjoyed the best wings on the strip! then we all parted our ways... then sunday spend the day passed out relaxing until leaving at 5pm....that win just made the trip sooo much better. I LOVE VEGAS!
    ____pictures will be put up with all of this fun! you guys can see how fun we like to dress to impress :p

    PS. some good slot wins from this trip and the last one

    Congrats on the Royal! Happy to hear that Harrahs honoured your Deluxe Executive Suite; I have one comped for 4 nights in September and have been sitting on the fence about cancelling it, but think I'll take the chance and keep the reservation....may double book a couple of nights at the Venetian or Palms though since Harrahs pool sux! Do you happen to know if you can get the DES with two queens instead of a king?:eek:
