    My Trip Report

    All the anticipation and boom, our fair city gets hit with snow for the first time this winter season. Airport is still open. Flight says it is on time. But getting there....ah, there's the rub.

    Hopefully, my next update will be an airport photo. Until then, think some positive driving-in-the-snow-with-drivers-who-only-drive-in-snow-once-a-year vibes!

    I loved doing a live TR on my last trip--it helped me keep track of my days, and is a nice memento.

    Checked airline flight status again and the flight is delayed by about two hours. Had to cancel and reschedule my Hell's Kitchen reservation, but this should make getting to the airport easier. Phew!

    Good luck getting out! I fly out at 10:30 and the snow isn't supposed to start here until 1-2 so I'm hoping that I'm in the clear.

    Be careful and hope you make it. I got about 6 inches this morning and totally agree with the 'once a year snow drivers'...that's awesome

    75F63B99-48FA-48BC-B934-86B275D80F7A.jpeg Made it to the airport. That was a white knuckle drive! We only get snow a couple times a year-most people don’t know how to drive in it. I at least know I don’t know how to drive in it, so I kept it slow and thanked my 4-wheel drive!

    Here’s an obligatory snow picture:)

    Instead of lobster risotto, I had to settle for a chicken sandwich from Starbucks.

    Fingers crossed for me, ok?

    Fingers crossed! Such a good feeling when you leave that snow behind! I hope it melts by the time you come back!
     
    Birthdays and warm weather!

    On the plane! Just did precheck mobile for Park MGM. Will report back on the kiosk experience.

    Now can I get excited?

    Oh, and I didn’t tell you I had a txt from work that we got another booking for an event I handle. Had to make that phone call from the airport. You can bet I’m not calling that vacation time!

    Glad you were able to get on the plane. It started snowing back home about an hour after I took off this morning.

    49E692EC-F0F0-487D-8871-ABF308F39635.jpeg Didn’t see the Welcome sign-I guess you can miss it coming from the B gates. So here is a cool vintage plane and car that we’re on display!

    ParkMGM-ok everyone was right. The rooms are small-solo they’re fine, but I wouldn’t want to share.

    The check in was super easy. I did pre-check mobile during the endless deicing before take off. Then on arrival, just scan the QR code, scan ID and keys print. I got 18th floor strip view king as requested.

    The windows are small. The closet and bathroom share a door, which is going to get old very soon. Tiny two drawer dresser. Here’s an idea of how small-I flew Spirit personal item only and I filled both dresser drawers!

    Having food at Roy Choi Best Friend. Only bar seats available without a reservation. This place is a trip.

    Next, find a drink and gamble some money! Later, I’m on the guest list at Marquee.
