    My Trip Report

    *plays dramatic music*

    The time has come!! I have waited 12 months and now the wait is no more!! :eek:

    *dramatic music ends*

    This will be my 3rd ever visit – 3rd time lucky do you think? I’ve never had a hand pay so hoping for my first! It will also be my 2nd ever attempt at a Trip Report. This will be semi live and I’m hoping to update at least once/twice a day if not more, depends how intoxicated I am to be honest…. :drunk:

    I am one of those freaks who plans everything and puts it all on excel, here’s a rough idea of what to expect, it’s going to be a busy 3 weeks!

    Over my 21 days I am staying at 7 different hotels in total (this is the first time I’ve ever had comp nights other than MyVegas);

    Caesars Palace - 4 night comp
    MGM Grand - 2 night comp (MyVegas Reward)
    Cosmo - 2 night comp (Teaser offer and upgraded to Fountain Terrace room ZOMG)
    Golden Nugget - 2 night comp (matched through URComped)
    Linq - 4 nights (1 paid)
    Planet Hollywood - 4 night comp
    Ballys - 2 night comp


    Gambling
    Slots & VP mainly – may try a couple of table games such as Roulette or Poker if I’m brave enough! :poker:

    Entertainment!
    Ozzy Osbourne Show
    G2E Convention
    My Vegas Halloween Party
    VMB Meet & Slot Pull
    An online gaming convention
    Drais Club night
    Bellagio Slot Tournament (maybe)
    Area 51 road trip

    Food Porn (hopefully get to tick all of these off the list!)
    Aria Buffet (2 free from MyVegas)
    Wolfgang Puck in MGM (MyVegas 241 voucher)
    Sterling Brunch (diamond celebration meal to save some $$$)
    Epic Cosmo eats – The Henry/Momofuku/China Poblano/District 9
    Carson Kitchen (thanks Basil for the pics!!)
    Pizza Rock
    Haute Doggery (will it be able to fulfil my grief for Pinks?)
    Hell’s Kitchen
    Gyu-Kaku BBQ
    Giadanos
    Strip House in PH
    Boarder Grill Brunch
    Buddy Vs Brunch

    Ok, next? 20 hours of traveling consisting of a 5 hour drive to Manchester Airport, drop the car off, Check in 3 hours before flight, then 11 hours over to Vegas. Hoping for some sleep on the plane and ETA in Vegas is 12pm. Then check into hotel #1 and of we go!! :woohoo:

    Oh yeah, and I’m taking my +1, forgot about him for a moment!

    p.s. He would like me to add that he is young and good looking.
    p.p.s. He's lying.

    Anyway, I won’t waffle on any more; I shall see you on my next post!

    Have fun and good luck! 21 days .... ! Btw, 5 hour drive to Manchester? Is it that much cheaper than LHR (which should only be a couple of hours, unless you're in N. Wales.

    I am totally following this. We usually fly from MAN if we can. That's 2.5 hours for us. Who are you flying with? We prefer Virgin (free alcohol) but TC is usually better priced. Last few trips have been TC.

    Enjoy your flight. I wish we could be there.

    Awesome work with all of the comp rooms!

    The brunch at Border Grill is excellent!

    Don’t be skurred about poker! I suggest the low rolling cash games at the Flamingo if you are worried about it, or maybe a cheap tourney at PHo.

    Missing from your itinerary:
    Getting drunkfaced at Frankie’s Tiki Room
    Taking your +1 to the Palomino :poke: :wink2:

    Woo-hoo!!! :woohoo: A 21 day trip, lucky you. Looking forward, big time, to your TR. As far as intoxicated posts go - I’m all for them, let ‘em rip, fly your freak flag for 21 days and have a blast.

    Happy travels and good fortune......

    That makes a lot of sense. I've been to Cardiff (cousins live in Bristol). Have a good flight!

    First win of the trip, getting in free with my +1's lounge access as it should only cover him!!

    Baileys and pastries for breakfast then!
