    My Trip Report

    Hi guys, it’s been a while since I been here.. but here we go! This is actually our 3rd trip to Vegas this year.. (last two was involved friends & family)
    It was pretty good nothing out of ordinary just having fun.

    Anyhow, this is our annual trip wife and I make for i heart radio concert (5 years) this event is for attending Friday and Saturday concert and $500K (promotional chips) invitational poker tournament held by Park MGM (it’s free entry courtesy by mgm) on Saturday.

    We are starting on 9/19 till 9/23 -
    Staying at Mandalay Bay (this is our second time staying at MB) I personally don’t like playing at MB but my host she’s such a sweetheart offers me great deal and goes out of her way to accommodate for my needs. She got us Horizon Suites with limo access 4 nights and 5 days!!

    Night before as wife and I trying to pack, just got done watching America Got Talent and man glad to see Kodi Lee won the title what a performer he is, my guess is he will be just like Ray Charles .. amazing voice.



    And here’s Ray Charles singing America the beautiful ( I think this should be our National Anthem, just my personal opinion :) )



    Anyhow, back to Vegas trip!! Let’s focus and try to have some fun.. I’m really looking forward to Def Leppard performing on Saturday night one of my favorite band!!! Listen to Pour Some Sugar on Me!!!



    Now, come with me to sin city and watch me play some poker trying to bluff pot after pot, put some people on tilt and hopefully make it to final table then enjoy the kick ass concert!!!

    Getting reimbursement for airline tickets?!?!?

    Also, one of reason I decide to stay at MB - which I never done it before but this actually worked!

    I didnt buy airline tickets to Vegas till last week which was last minute (we only fly delta which it can get costly as it is and buying it last min it did not help) anyhow I decided to call my host at MB and addressed this concern she said she can offer me “free play on slots $1500”!!! Holy cow!! That actually worked!! I asked for free promotional chips but she said Mgm is moving away from those table game promotions (whatever) but $1500 free slot play it will occupy my wife for very long time lol. She did suggest that she can see if she can reimburse for tickets based on my play but her and I discussed which we thought it wasn’t a good idea since I need to play for “big money” and need to lose a lot.
    I heard in order for you to get airline ticket reimburse it needs to be $50k plus (not sure if this is true)

    Regardless I’m very happy to get some free play for my airline tickets!!

    Excited to follow along! I’ll be in the city too, but no concerts for me (unless Christina Aguilera is there and I can get a ticket...). :)

    Have an amazing time!

    I agree!! Every time that plays I tell anyone who will listen that the Ray Charles America the Beautiful is the best ever! I absolutely LOVE hearing it!

    Just arrived at airport!!! Perfect timing we always leave around 1230 it’s only our second time leaving at 630 at evening ... I guess we gonna see some awesome light shows on way in .. can’t wait.

    Not eating much for obvious reason (being in the plane for 5 hours) so when we land we are planning to eat at MB hotel haven’t decided which Resturant -
    Kumi is always good but just want to try somewhere new. I noticed as I get older I shy away from meats and more towards to seafood. Maybe Libertine Social or Foundation Room... we shall see.

Got a pay the price ! As we landed least limo driver was ready and willing so all good. Brand new Cadillac Escalade not bad at all. Then we pulled into MB as we rush in try to get in the room : bottom line we are pretty hungry and want to get some

    anyhow, we are now at foundation room for dinner ... I will load up the photos once food starting to come out.

    I ordered the sea bass and wife ordered the steak
    Scallops For appetizers

    Some photos of view from restaurant and wife’s drink .. I’m not a big drinker I just stick with my voss water

    Dinner have arrived!! Steak is second to none however sea bass not bad but little too “fishy taste” to it. I mean it’s good but don’t think I be ordering it again. Scallops were excellent ..

Since we are on eastern time zone we decided to come back to room and chill.

    Here are some room photos - view is looking at the strip but with lights on inside the room it’s hard to take some good photos however turns out foundation room is just above my room so view is almost identical.
