Preface and some foreshadowing My guy and I were so happy when 2020 ended, we were like "Bye Bitch. Don't let the door hit you on the way out". However, 2021 came along and said "Hold my beer". I'll spare you the long painful details, but my guy ended up going in to the hospital on 2/28 and he was diagnosed with liver disease. We thought he would get stabilized in the hospital so that he could come home and get healthy enough for a transplant. It didn't work out that way. He never made it home and he passed away on 4/3/2021 at only 51 years old. So it's been a painful and grief filled few months. I did go to Vegas for 11 days in June and we called this my "Eat, Play, Recov(er)" trip. A take on "Eat, Pray, Love". It was awesome to be back after 2 years and many friends and family met me there, but the gambling was a disaster. I did manage to tier match at Wynn and complete the promotion at the 4Qs though. My guy was a big foodie and a gigantic Jose Andres fan so the plan was to eat in excess at many higher end places. Done. I ate at Jaleo, China Poblano (twice), Giada, Barry's, MAG, Overlook Cafe, Le Thai, Lakeside, Andiamo's and Gordon Ramsey Pub and Grill. During this trip my friend, A, said she was coming back in July with her daughters for a few days for a Bruno Mars concert. She said if I wanted to come out at the end of her trip she would extend her stay after her adult daughters left. I told her to let me get home and I'll look at the finances and schedule and see if I could swing it. Well.... wouldn't you know it. The Wynn sent me an offer for 3 weeknights with $100 food credit and $100 resort credit. My birthday is also at the end of July so I could also use the $150 birthday food credit at The Wynn. I also was able to book the 4th night with the Wynn app. Flights on SWA were pretty cheap and I still had some credits left. I couldn't come up with one reason to not go so I booked it and started planning. Right before July 4th I was contacted on Linkedin about a potential new executive opportunity. I wasn't looking for a career change, but I told them I was willing to talk to them to see if we happen to be a good fit. We had some great phone conversations and they asked me to come up for a 4 hour in person interview with 5 people on 7/23. So I also had to prep for that quite a bit while planning. My guy was not this biggest gambler, but he would like to go to the locals casino here with me because it is also a resort and he LOVED their restaurants, bars and it is a great place to play Pokemon Go (or so he told me). The day before I was leaving for this trip I got a memory reminder from July 24, 2016 on Facebook from his account. On that day he sat down next to me and hit his one and only royal ever. He shared it on Facebook, I put the post below. The timing was kind of incredible so I was hopeful this was a great sign for my upcoming trip. My Guy's Facebook Post from 7/24/2016: It's true! It can happen to you! Best strategy is to stroll around Casino del Sol picking up Pokémon and hitting all the Pokéstops, then drop in to play $40 for one last try next to a master. Only 10 or so more to go to catch up with Kathie. I'll keep trying, ... kind of. I think that's all the background for the trip ..... let's go find out what happened shall we?
