    My Trip Report

    First Vegas trip of 2017 is mere hours away. Here are a look at the details.

    The Flight:

    Allegiant non stop....wheels up 9pm central. Vegas arrival around the 10 o'clock west coast time.

    The who:

    My Mom and Sister will be joining me Monday thru Wednesday afternoon. The Hookah King comes in Wednesday night thru Sunday.

    The where:

    Paris from Sunday to Wednesday afternoon. Host tells me the room will be killer......I kind of laughed that off on my last trip until he put me up in the 52nd floor of Planet Hollywood over looking the strip.

    I will also be gambling at various other properties on the strip most notably, but limited to Cosmo and Aria. I will be staying at the Golden Gate for the Downtown portion of my trip. I'm changing it up and not staying at the Nugget this time. My bankroll is a bit smaller this trip and don't want to burn my host. I will gambling at several other properties Downtown as well.....primarily Nugget, Gate, The D and Downtown Grand, but certainly not limited to.

    The offers:

    Paris - Room only. I could of gotten 100 in food and 60 in Free Play. I feel that's chicken shit for my level of play so I said screw it, I don't need it and told em to keep it. I am fine with that as I will have noooooo issues spreading my play around and mainly at Cosmo.

    Golden Gate - 300 in promo chips, suite with possible upgrade to penthouse at arrival, Food which is extremely limited, but the pancakes are awesome there.

    The bankroll:

    Cash on hand is 7.5k this trip. I don't have the disposable income this trip like I have had the last few. When you work for yourself and own your own biz there are times that you live like a king and others where you don't. I just ordered a new boat and sold one......and the checks that I wrote for both transactions put a significant dent in my "funny" money accunt. Here is a look at the new whip.

    The To Do List:

    1.) Turn 7.5k to 63k(remaining balance on the new boat)
    2.) Eat at the Eiffel Tower with Mom and Sister.
    3.) Play Blackjack, Craps, and Bac......might mix in some roulette for shits and giggles with my Mom and Sister.
    4.) Play a lot of slots.....yep I have become a slot addict. Last time I was in Vegas I got my first handpay on the new wizard of oz game at the Golden Gate.

    5.) Smoke hookah and a few choice cigars.
    6.) Drink heavily......or errrrr I mean in moderation.(easy to accomplish the moderation part with my family, but The Hookah King is a terrible influence.
    7.) Post 71 pics of various happenings.
    8.) Have a great time with family and a damn good friend......everything else is secondary.


    Time to start packing!

    Can't wait to see the pic from your room. Our host put us in a Calais suite on the top floor with a straight on Bellagio fountain view in February. It was beautiful. Great way to kick off our 10th anniversary trip!

    Nice Slim Clip in the bankroll picture! I've had mine since 2009, and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made.

    I will be at the Plaza for a comped mini-suite from Wednesday to Saturday. Just read some of your other trip reports. Looking to see how this one plays out. I'm coming from Columbus....home of the Clippers...AAA team for the WIndians! But, I am sure you already knew that. Good luck on your trip dude.
