    My Trip Report

    After a long sleepless red eye to Seattle and a hop skip and jump down to Vegas we are finally here checked in at aria. I tried the $20 sandwich and didn’t have any luck this trip. They did offer the cheap rate for the corner suite which was highly recommended so we went for it. So far the GF is enjoying it and excited to try out the tub later on tonight. Excitement is peaking and I’m afraid the lack of slee will catch up soon. Time for a quick shower and run down to grind on some slots. Pics to come

    Six days! Get some rest! Don't overdo it on the first day after no sleep

    Not much to report, walked down to have some lunch and check out the sky suite lounge. Got a couple of drinks and went to grab a sandwich. Nothing exciting to report yet. Sat down at a couple Cleo II and wheel of fortune
    Machines. Not a lot of love yet. But it’s still early. Going to take a quick nap while the girlfriend finishes up her homework. Anyone got any old faithfuls at aria to grind on?

    Not really a bad thing but being right across the cosmo pool you can hear the party from our room. It’s not too loud. I’ll just put the tv on to drown it out.

    I had good luck on the Rising Fortunes slots a few weeks ago. Over by high limit area.

    That was for the girlfriend. She liked it. Said it was different. Candy pecans in it, but she ate it all. We’re going to need to diet when we get back home.

    I hear you. I just got back from Vegas and then a cruise vacation. It was ridiculous the weight I gained in just two weeks. . . . . Back to regular eating. In the meantime, enjoy great food for us and share pics!

    Well I got a little over zealous and took a bite before I remembered to take a pic. Burger lounge for dinner. Pretty tasty and free refills on drinks all night. My nap didn’t go as plan. Girlfriend did homework and passed out with me so a half hour rest ended up being 3 hours haha. She’s finishing up and we’ll be heading back down to the casino for a bit. Keeping my fingers crossed, so far the casino hasn’t been nice.

    This should have been my cue to hit the sack! But no I decided to give Zeus II a try and well. Most of that winning is gone. So about $1000 down for the day. But that leaves $200 from todays bankrolll to throw in tomorrow’s bankroll and go for the big bucks! Wish me luck. Signing off for the night.

    Slow start to the day. Spent the morning enjoying some extra shut eye. Went to the tower suite lounge to see what they had for snacks. Nothing to great looking so off to aria cafe for a light breakfast and then see where the day takes us

    Decided on the aria cafe waffles. I’m not much of a breakfast guy, but since I’ve quit smoking I figured why not put a little something in the tank... plus it makes the missus happy.

    Spread a little money around the cosmo while the girlfriend is getting her hair done at drybar. Found the original walking dead machine in the casino. I love that game. Thankfully there’s not too many of them around or I’d go broke. It’s one of those I just want the stupid bonuses! All rationality goes out the window and I sit there with a crazy look on my face feeding in money... so cooler heads prevailed and after dumping more than I should of I thought I’d take a page out of grids book and try some pinball, it was not having any of me. So I walked around through $20 here $40 there and ended up trying out double bonus poker. Hit my first 4OAK. Think I may give video poker some more love when I get to aria. For now going to go check on the girlfriend and maybe take a quick nap before we go to watch Ka tonight. I really wish I could drink something with caffeine!!!!!

    A couple more 4OAK. Nothing spectacular. Ka changed a little since the first time we saw it. We had much better seats this time around and we were both amazed again by how talented these performers are. Sorry no pics from the show. About to head down to the casino and get that handpay that’s been holding out on me. Fingers crossed lol.
