    My Trip Report

    Let's hope Vegas doesn't hit back. Big birthday coming up and my wife wants to do a surprise party. I think a trip to Vegas is better. She is cool with that. We are two sleeps away from our visit to NYNY.

    I will maybe post a live trip report. If I win I'll post details. If not this will be a quiet thread. So set your expectations low.

    Plan is to do Le Cirque Thursday, serranos for lunch Friday, Andres Friday night, Gangnam lunch Sat, and who knows Sat night. (We only eat twice a day in Vegas).

    Gambling and drinking tends to change the plans. Lol.

    Eat, drink, and gamble!!! One more work day.

    Done with work and getting ready! The only way to sit still now is to post here.

    My wife texted me at work about leaving tonight. I check and said we can leave on a flight at 7pm. She said she was kidding.....I wasn't. Lol.

    In honor of the pre trip outfits thread I'll post a couple pics of the dinner dress for Le Cirque and Andres (we have decided to do both).

    My wife's not ready to post outfits yet and I'm not going to hassle her.

    I guess the only other way to chill is to break out wine I've been sitting on for a while. Birthday officially starts at midnight but the wine is a bday eve present to myself.

    Thanks for all the well wishes.

    Happy Birthday!!! I feel like I am going to Vegas under-dressed. I have a pair of cargo shorts, a bathing suit and 3 pairs of Nike basketball shorts!

    Fashion police here, switch out the shirt in the first photo; it doesn't work with the jacket :). Yeah, I know, my hubby hates my fashion police patrol too! Enjoy the birthday wine. You'll soon be on your way!

    You are certainly right, I'm a little short on clean clothes after poor planning and just getting back from a biz trip last night. But I decided to go clash and wear a jacket I almost never wear. It's Vegas....thought I'll go with a loud outfit.

    Worst part is I might wear brown alligator boots with that jacket/shirt combo. Fashion police might tackle and taze me. Lol.

    Btw. - that wine was awesome.

    Ohhhhhh, a taser; I hadn't thought of adding that to my fashion police arsenal lol. I usually just write up citations :). Hey, it's Vegas. It's nice to see people getting dressed up and not just schlepping around in shorts all the time. I'm just teasing ya!

    Made it to the airport for our first drinks! No line at security. Love flying out of San Antonio. Even the TSA folks are friendly. Someone left a hotel room key in a bin and everyone is laughing about the TSA guy getting lucky tonight.

    Here are the other boot. Alligator boot pic later.

    I guess my outfit will stand out better than a green bracelet! Mrs Wookie has a new outfit that she is excited about but I have not seen. But I'm sure the fashion police will approve. Lol.

    We didn't score an upgrade (always 1-2 people away on the list). Kind of like four to a royal...happens all the time but the big upgrade is elusive.

    But we do have an open seat between us! Like pulling a non suited straight on four to a royal...some condolence.

    Saw a ton of luggage stuffed into the trunk of this limo. Party of 15? More bags were stuffed next to the driver. I wanted to roll down the window and tell him the truck was open. Hehe.

    NYNY.

    Quick stop at the spa on the way to the room to arrange treatment.
