    My Trip Report

    In about 10 hours I will be arriving for three nights at Aria! This will be my 13th trip to Vegas and first trip for the year! This was originally supposed to be a solo trip, but two friends from San Francisco were able to book a trip to join me for two of the nights.

    As per usual I will be posting here live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, and other ramblings. I also tweet a bit, so if you are inclined to use the Twitters you can follow me @TwoWayHardEight

    Loose plans for the trip so far:
    - Video Poker, Blackjack, Craps, and some Sluts
    - Drinking
    - Maybe some pool time
    - Hopefully a nice dinner or two, I wanna try Momofuku
    - Wanna try a new bar or two maybe something with a view, also wanna check out Golden Tiki
    - Collect some chips to round out my collection from Circus Circus, Westgate, and Plaza
    - Low-rolling downtown
    - ACG coupons around town
    - Whatever else Vegas brings our way

    It's been about five months since I've been to Vegas, so I'm super excited. I hope you’ll follow along with me!

    Check in was smooth, Lyft to Aria was smooth, gambling, not so much. Lost $100 on the infamous Boner Delux STP.

    Thanks!

    Got a little something, but still down $300 for the trip. Off to find some breakfast. Egg slut had a line at 8:30 so I skipped it.
