    My Trip Report

    Okay VMBers, its been a few weeks since I got massacred and fled Vegas early. A short trip now 5/23-26 then fly to pittsburgh for a curling bonspiel. Playing a slot tourney at the D, using my legend status first time for a limo... double booked flamingo to grab dining credit to catch a free dinner at raos.... Plan on Rao's, Andiamo, and maybe hugos, maybe Chicago brewing, maybe magnolias, maybe pizza rock... who knows...

    Planning on some hours at stadium swim for sure, likely on mon and tues. And bringing appropriate clothes to check out the legacy club.

    Flights.... UA from PHL FC, had a promo where if I booked a $550 premium cabin ticket I'd get 15k bonus miles... I count UA miles at about 2 cents each, so I thought it was a good deal, and will move me to gold status through 2022. Then flying nonstop las to pit..... using up some credit I have with them... and flight still looks empty now...

    Gambling.... planning on redeeming diamond elite airfare credit at flamingo, and playing .25 bp at the vue bar, along with some at the overhang at the D..... May play some pai gow as well, but looking to relax more than full out degen.... (famous last words)

    Wish me luck, I'm looking to eek out a smallish win.... (but I will for damn sure take a big one! ...that's what she said)

    Slow train ride down to PHL today, checked in and about 10 minutes for pre-check.... somewhat busy here, but nowhere near normal phl-ness..... Sitting down at the hammerhead of terminal D watching the runways.... well be departing on 27R today, the "usual" pattern

    good luck in Vegas. Curious to hear about the slot tournament. My wife might try one at the D during our August trip.

    Ive done one before, always less than 100 people, 5k prize.... it's easy and not crowded and fair, winners actually win, as opposed to a harrah's tournment where seven stars always win

    You mentioned possibly playing some pai gow. Would be interested to know if they put the pai gow table back in at the D if you happen to notice.

    Best of luck!

    I will certainly look, if not maybe I'll play some at Circa

    I just cancelled Rao's, don't really feel like doing the strip... I am still going to double book a day at Planet Hollywood to get my airfare credit from Caesars (diamond elite benefit) but otherwise I am staying close.

    Some pool time at circa, maybe some bingo... maybe I'll try ocean one at PH.

    We shall see..... off to my next plane.
