In about 24 hours I will be arriving in Vegas for a 3-night stay at NoMad. This will be my 19th (!) trip to Vegas, and first trip this year. I’ve been on a gambling hiatus for the past 4 months because the BF has been in school, so we've been trying to reduce expenses. I'm excited to get back at it! I’ll be flying solo this trip so no big shows or dinners planned, but I will be attempting a full Strip run on Monday, walking through and gambling at least $20 at all 25 casinos on The Strip between Mandalay Bay and Encore. Will I make it to the end? Will I lose all my money? Will I regret my life choices? We’ll see! Three nights are comped at NoMad, plus $50 in resort credit and $50 freeplay. First time staying there, so excited to see what it’s like. Also got my round-trip flight in Comfort + on Delta "comped" for 25k points. Plans for the trip so far: - Lots of Video Poker, Blackjack, Craps, and some Slots - Maybe a bit of pool time if the weather holds - Try Ellis Island BBQ for the first time - Drinking - Full day downtown on Sunday, with a big ACG/LVA coupon run - VMB mini meetup on Monday, assuming Vegas doesn’t get in the way - Going to try to hit up Best Friend, NoMad bar, and Eataly at Park MGM - More drinking - The full Strip run, hitting all 25 casinos in one go - Bunch of ACG and LVA coupons - Hitting a $50,000 handpay (one should have goals, right?) - Whatever else Vegas brings our way As usual, I will be posting here live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, and other thoughts. I will also live tweet some of the highlights of my trip, including the Strip run, on Twitter. You can follow me there @TwoWayHardEight I hope you’ll join me!
