    My Trip Report

    “I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer.”

    Back for trip #15 and my 1st Super Bowl Weekend in Las Vegas.

    Joining me on this trip will be my Vegas drinking/gambling/hetero-life mate, Silent Bo...uh, I mean GT.

    We each scored a great deal on a Grand King room after having originally booked at Mirage and then later at TI. My room for the weekend will wind up costing just $49 + 4 nights resort fees. For one of the biggest weekends in Vegas, I’m happy with that!

    Plans this weekend involve plenty of degenerate activities one would find in a place the caliber of Las Vegas. Gambling, drinking, shows, drinking, dining, drinking...

    One thing we don’t have planned is where we are watching the game. I’ll be honest...I’ve been spoiled the last 20 years. I’m a 35 year Patriots fan and when they aren’t playing, my interest level drops to below that of a casual fan. I’ll have some $ riding on the 49ers, but at this point, I’ll be happy catching a few minutes here and there on a bar TV while playing through the casinos. GT has eluded to doing the same, so at this point I think it’s safe to say we’ll be gambling while everyone else is partying it up from 3-7pm.

    I’ll be popping into this thread every now and then to drop in a few photos but I’ll be saving the majority of this TR for the recap once I get back next week.

    T-minus 8 hours until I’m back in my happy place. Time to finish the last minute packing and then I’m off to grab GT for the short drive to our regional.

    LF’NG!!!

    Live from the Plaza hotel. Quick summary:

    • Down about $80. That’s everything included once landing.

    • Drink of choice this trip? Black Russians. 9 today.

    • Saw Carrot Top last night. Was pleasantly surprised.

    •What’s better than a shot of maple syrup?

    Quoting Strange Brew, referencing Kevin Smith, and sharing a pic from Super Troopers..... it’s quite possible we are both victims of a Freaky Friday, and you are me, in male form.

    Except for the whole Patriots thing.....

    So I think you, @Gaggles @FormallyTD and @Spudlink need to have a meetup... or more accurately, *we* need y’all to figure it out because it would be very entertaining for those of us not in Vegas now :thumbsup::popcorn:

    Back at MGM. Felt bad for Uber dude. Didn’t talk to him the whole way back. Drank 3 waters here and waiting for second wind and room to stop spinning tonight. God, I hope it happens. Tina at Plaza couldn’t believe I was still playing the same $20.

    pocket dump confirms down about $110 total. All of it today was tips for Tina. El Cortez treated me good in the motming.
