I will be in Vegas from Saturday the 18 th to Friday the 24, staying at Bellagio. I am here for a conference Monday through Wednesday with an extra day at the end. I was able to get Saturday comped and a little free play ($75) and resort credit ($50). I like playing poker tournaments, but will need to fit that in at night where possible. I will also play some blackjack and slots. I try to keep my trip reports as “live” as possible with lots of photos. Being inspired by Matt Bridgers (mattjb) reports, I am going to try and insert some videos this time. All photos and videos will be done with my iPhone 7 Plus. I am renting a car but unfortunately, it is prepaid so I need to stop at the counter rather than going right to the garage. I just hope the lines aren’t long. As is my tradition, the first thing I will do is drive out to John Mull’s Road Kill Grill for BBQ. I arrive around 10:45AM so I will get lunch and then go check in at Bellagio. The first non win of the trip is that I wasn’t upgraded. I am number 4 of 7 on the upgrade standby list. I decided to check a bag this time, because it was tough fitting all my stuff in my carryon last year for this length of trip and needing work and non work clothes. Couldn't sleep as usual before a Vegas trip so I have another half hour till I leave for the airport.
