    My Trip Report

    It's that time again, in about 24 hours we will be on our way to Vegas! This will be my 26th trip to Vegas and 4th trip for the year.

    This trip will be a little bit different. It is a packed trip for a secret special occasion. I will still be posting live, but probably not as much gambling and wandering around as I usually do. Staying at Cosmo for the very first time, booked in a Fountain View Terrace Suite. I don't have any comps at Cosmo, so had to pay out of pocket. First time in a long time I've done that in Vegas! At least I was able to get our flights on miles...

    Plans for the trip so far:
    - Dinner at Hells Kitchen Friday night to use up some Diamond Celebration credits
    - Some light gambling
    - Secret special occasion Saturday afternoon
    - Dinner at Mayfair on Saturday night
    - Brunch at Spago on Sunday
    - Dinner at Beauty and Essex on Sunday night
    - RuPaul's Drag Race Live on Sunday night
    - Whatever else Vegas brings our way!

    I will try to post here live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, and other thoughts. I also usually live tweet a bit on Twitter, you can follow me there @TwoWayHardEight

    I hope you’ll join me!

    Hells Kitchen was as good as I remember. This time had the Smoke on The Blvd, the Paloma, pumpkin soup, beet salad, vegan risotto and the braised short rib. And had to have the sticky toffee pudding.
