    Phew... what a busy spring/summer it has been....rather whole year!!! I been so busy with life in general ... especially my daughter graduating from high school then off to college, it was still is very emotional experience for me...

    Anyhoo! This would be our 2nd trip to Vegas .yes 2nd and no I didn’t do trip report ...

    Back in July we were there for 10 days! Stayed at mgm skyline terrace suite along with aria sky suite and of course it was awesome experience (this was involved whole family), had dinner at Jean Georges steakhouse (holy cow, it was costly lol) at Aria also celebrated my big 50 birthday (even tho my bday is not till October, but we had 5 other couples met with us in Vegas decided to throw my bday party anyhow lol)
    Here are some photos from Jean George, nice birthday cakes from friends and view from my mgm suite along w interior... ganging was very profitable :)

    So, this trip starts on 9/20 till 9/26th... we are staying at 4 nights at MB then 3 nights at Bellagio .. we also decided to get 3 nights at Park MGM (Friday till Monday) : we will be attending iheart radio concerts and wife wanted to have close place to freshen up along with place to crash in case if we didn’t want to go back MB.. besides we never stayed when it was Monte carlos and since it switched to Park Mgm we heard good things so we will see how it goes.

    Again, this trip is our wifey and I only annual trip for iheart concert we been attending last 4 years -
    So here’s some of the schedule - Friday and Saturday iheart radio concert @ T-Mobile Center
    Tuesday Cabana day @ bellagio

    We will be having dinner some of following places mmmmm can’t wait;
    Morimoto, Kumi, Largos, Otoro, yellowtail, Lemongrass, Julian Serrano tapas and Fiamma Italian (these are some of our favorite Resturants)

    We also want to try Carbone and libertine social first time.. so any feed back would appreciate it.
    Plan to go see Zumanity if not Fantasy ... never been to either show again any feedbacks please?

    Play my usual game baccarat....some slots w wife...Probably goto shopping the usual spots including premium outlet.
    Perhaps meet with some of our vegas friends ...
    bankroll would be usual - I use markers mostly at mgm owned property’s but this trip I decided to open markers also at ceasears property’s as well hopefully goes well.
    so let the trip and party begin!!!
    Flying out tomorrow via Delta airline usually on time..

    Good luck
    We will be in town Sun - Wed. RTRV Sunday night. Great show.
    Zumanity. Good show. If you sit near the stage beware. They pick numerous people for audience participation.

    Okay.. it’s 7:05 am can’t sleep.. walked around casino floor for bit then came into lounge for some coffee - MB VIP checkin/lounge is pretty decent it’s good size never crowded offers hot coffees and bottled waters along with usual soft drinks which comes in handy.

    As I walking around and realized how slow their casino here..barely any body playing any games I chatted w vip room mgr and she mentioned overall Mgm happy w how Vegas is operating yes gaming is slow (due to most of states now operates regional casino, like one in Detroit where I play mostly) so longest Mgm is making money on hotel room they are ok with performance which I thought it was pretty interesting. I would assume they try to focus more on gaming but seem like longest they make money on hote side business they are ok ... (gaming revenue comes mostly regional casinos)
