    My Trip Report

    I've done a couple live reports this year (albeit nowhere near as well done or thorough as some of you-- thank you for keeping me occupied when I am not in Vegas), one with my wife at the Mirage and one with my best friend at Mirage/Cosmo split.

    Never went to Vegas until 2010 when I surprised my wife as a gift when she finished her Masters degree... and was immediately hooked and have been nine times in seven years. Four of those trips have been since 2015. I've been on trips just wife and I, couples trips, guys trips for the World Cup, and the always enjoyable bachelor party.

    This trip marks my tenth voyage to the promised land and will be for my younger brother's (I am 34 he is 31) bachelor party.

    Fairly diverse group in terms of finances, as well as personalities, so I anticipate a fun trip. There will be twelve guys in total and while my brother will be housed in a wrap around terrace suite as Cosmo, the group is staying in multiple hotels near this area. I will be leaving work early Wednesday and catching an evening flight out of Newark and arriving at 10pm local time. Everyone else is coming in Thursday afternoon. I figured 1) super saver flight option with United miles always a plus and 2) I can sleep on flight, grind some poker late night and then get a great night sleep and not be jet lagged Thursday. I can also get up early Thursday and essentially have one "solo" day which I've never had before.

    I split this trip due to favorable offers from CET and Bellagio. I am a low roller by most standards (poker and sports betting my vices) and he rates I received in middle of March madness were solid. I will check into a Red Room at Paris Wednesday night and remain there until Friday. I plan to wake up Thursday and do Mon Ami Gabi breakfast (always once per trip minimum) and check out the Paris pool. Play some poker at Ballys next door and some cheap blackjack as well. By midday my brother and company will be in town and then hang out in his suite shooting the and figure out how the debauchery will begin.

    Friday I will check into Bellagio where I will remain until Sunday's departure. This will be my second stay at the B and am looking forward to trying to get a $20 sandwhich turned into a fountain view. I usually have success with this, especially with a younger, female staff member checking me in.

    Friday we are doing Encore Beach Club and renting a cabana. I did Drais at the Cromwell in 2015 as my first Vegas pool party and although costly ($700 per guy) it was a great experience. To quote my buddy Big Mike "like fishing with grenades" for the single guys. I plan to be heavily intoxicated and will likely donate some additional funds to Steve Wynn via gambling after this.

    Friday night dinner at Prime Steakhouse, reservations for 12 at 8pm. Friday night everyone gambling and likely end up at the Rhino (I have never been to a strip club in Vegas, so let's see what the hype is about).

    Saturday we will do another pool party, but likely more low key and not necessarily a $5k minimum bungalow. Most likely going to Marquee at Cosmo.

    Saturday night should be a more low key dinner and then flight out 11am Sunday.

    Things I want to accomplish on this trip:

    - my first hand pay (still yet to hit in Vegas or Atlantic City) although hit a $530 Michonne spin on TWD slot at Cosmo in October. Getting close.

    - log at least 12 hours of poker. Few hours at Ballys after checking into Paris and then a solid session at Bellagio. I go AC often (was at Harrahs last night and Borgata last weekend) and feel on weekends the games easier in Vegas than AC.

    - drink my face off

    - be a Goose caliber (top gun reference) wingman for the single guys at Encore Beach Club

    - enjoy Mon Ami Gabi and Prime meals

    - hit all the CET strip properties for the Quest for Badge. I have already collected from all three Atlantic City properties and Harrahs Philly.

    Well that's about it. I was nursing an Atlantic City enduced hangover from last night and realized my Vegas trip is eleven days away. Getting psyched and the next week or so of work is bound to drag on.

    I hope I can provide lots of pictures if nothing else and will try to stay on top of this.

    Couple pics to get ready:

    Can't sleep. Going to work for an important meeting, staying for half of it and then off to Newark for a united flight to Vegas baby!

    All packed up. Rented the Hangover on my iPhone (this trip with this group could go that route) and will touch down 930pm local time. Let's go!

    Just started w/ a win. Uber to airport from my job took about 30. Check in and security in < 30 minutes. Go to Surf (middle bar/restaurant) at the united terminal of EWR and scan my boarding pass. Randomly won my beer, crab cocktail, and fries free. $43 saved. Winner winner French fry dinner.

    Hostess said randomly happens at times. I'll take it!

    Posted pretrip thread. Was moved to another forum. Four nights total. Leaving in 90 minutes. Got to Newark airport via Uber and got through security and check in real quick (<30 minutes).

    Time for food at bar/restaurant. Ordered beer fries and crab cocktail only to be randomly chosen as a comped meal + gratuity from United Mileageplus. Score!

    Connection flying in sucks. 90 minute layover in San Francisco and then land in Vegas 950pm local time.

    Check into Paris for two nights (Red Room) and then last two at Bellagio.

    We're rolling twelve guys deep, many of which are pretty big partiers. Throw in Encore Beach Club and gentlemans clubs and this will be a slobber knocker.

    This one may go sideways.

    You're getting there! :D
    Party on, NJbadlands!

    I'm off to MSP to pick up my bride and minion #3 from their spring break trip!
    They flew down on Delta, but are coming back tonight on Spirit. So they'll likely need TLC ASAP! :D
