    My Trip Report

    In about 24 hours the BF and I will be on the way to Vegas for three nights at Aria! This will be my 12th trip to Vegas and 3rd trip this year. We have two of the three nights comped, a bit of freeplay and some resort credits.

    Oh, and it’s my Birthday…

    I will be posting here live/semi-live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, etc. I will be tweeting a bit as well. If you are inclined to use the Twitters please follow me: @TwoWayHardEight

    Some loose plans for the trip:
    - See the Baz show at V/P
    - Video Poker, Craps, Blackjack, a few Sluts and maybe some other games
    - Drinking
    - Try to score a Birthday upgrade
    - Check out Lucky Dragon
    - More drinking
    - Eating
    - Hit up Peppermill, haven’t been since my first trip to Vegas
    - Wandering the strip
    - A little low-rolling downtown and off-strip
    - Use up some remaining ACG coupons
    - Maybe running into another VMB'er, you’re most likely spot me at a VP machine at Aria
    - Expanding my chip collection, still need some North Strip casinos
    - Of course, whatever else Vegas brings our way

    Still building my bankroll back up after saving for and buying a condo, but should have a good chunk to play with. The BF has discovered a love for bar-top Video Poker, so I expect to do a lot of that this trip. Also would like to play more Craps. Something I always plan, but never quite do. Last trip was in August, it seems like not that long ago, but also seems like it’s been ages!! Will be interesting to see what Vegas is like in around Christmas time.

    I hope you’ll follow along!

    Planning on it!

    The Decorations are awesome at Bellagio conservatory and lobby as usual - Aria and Crystals too!
    Hope Aria is good to you - let's see some wins. We really enjoyed Javiers a couple weeks ago.

    Thanks! I've stayed at Aria so many times and still haven't gone to Javier's. Maybe this will be the trip!

    A Strip-ish view. Landed, deboarded, Lyft to Aria ($11), checked in and up in the room in 40 min. Not bad!
