    I’m flying back this morning so this will be the last “live” post from Vegas. I’ll try to post a recap with some thoughts about my trip over the weekend once I’m home.

    I knew EXACTLY what you were referring to and thought it was funny as hell.

    Ah... That is the Bloody Mary at Mon Ami Gabi. Really great! It’s almost a meal itself!

    Back at home now and had a few days of recovery. ;)

    Gambling this trip was as fun as always. It was a little more difficult to find $10 craps on the strip. Especially later on in the day.

    I helped some newbies at MGM Grand play the correct odds (even on 5 and 9) when the dealers didn’t point it out to them. After that, the dealers seemed to help them out so maybe they just missed it the first time. Dealers have typically been helpful in the past but it is always hit or miss.

    Ended up playing craps at: Harrah's, Bally’s, Paris, PH, MGM Grand, Park MGM, Aria and the D downtown.

    Also played some blackjack and slots.

    At the end of the trip I was down about $500 gambling for the trip which isn’t bad considering how much I played. I could have used a couple more numbers on a few of those craps rolls, but that is always the case. ;)

    The food was amazing this trip as always. Didn’t really have a bad meal anywhere. I also had some great bourbon and cocktails.

    As recommended here on VMB, I bought some Drip Drop before my trip and used one or two each day. I must say that it really kept me hydrated and although I drank a lot of alcohol, I didn’t wake up once with a bad hangover. (I mean, it’s not a cure-all. I did feel groggy on a few mornings before that first Bloody Mary. ;) But nothing really bad either.)

    After several trips flying JetBlue Mint, I am spoiled. I see that the price has been increasing lately to a number that I’m not willing to pay so I will have to time future trips carefully to get a decent price.

    And most importantly, I met some awesome VMBers while I was in Vegas. It was great to put some faces to names and hang out with fellow Vegas enthusiasts!

    One more trip in the books. Looking forward to next time!
