    4* Gila River Resort very convenient right next to an exit for the 10 freeway a little south of PHX (Chandler) that is your gateway towards Tucson ... also an outlet mall right there if you're looking to pick up some US stuff

    Got here two hours early and barely made flight. Gazillion dollars in airport renovations with surcharges and taxes up the ass and they have TWO security gates and one Nexus line today. It was brutal.

    Here two hours early and barely made plane. So, first EFF U of trip to Calgary Airport.

    Shuttle guys said this was busiest travel day since Covid.

    Our original plan was to drive straight to Scottsdale. My kick ass wife just said, maybe we should just stay here tonight or maybe Laughlin. Where’s a good Sportsbook to watch football, she asked. Oh did I marry the right gal!!!! I think we are staying at MGM..... stay tuned.

    For people renting Hertz who don't need the car for their whole trip, highly recommend at least checking what the rate is for picking up and dropping off at your hotel (Cosmo and CET).

    I saw similar pics over the summer and did a 1-day rental picking up and dropping off at Cosmo for $34 all in and zero wait.

    Of course, you'd have to pay for a cab/Uber in at least one direction to/from the airport, but in my case, the difference in price alone made it worth it, on top of not having to deal with the shuttle bus and any backups at the rental center.

    Four drinks in after a stop at Sully’s. Down $100 sociable dollars. Was worth it. Rumours of this new chump beverage mgr cutting neck good booze are true. This will require a VMB revolt you guys.

    Cross tables at Bally’s are $10 and $15.

    We are off to Tucson early tomorrow so I MUST be in bed early!!!

    I'm jelly! Was supposed to go a couple weeks back but didn't mostly due to not knowing if Vegas was gonna be shut-down again. They didn't. Chalk up another loss for me.

    Hope you guys have a blast.. looking forward to seeing what Vegas is like this NYE! We've been there 3 of the past 4 years, always the greatest place to be!
     
    Finally back after 22 LOOOONG months!
