I'm back for my second trip report! After the beating I took over Thanksgiving I figured I needed to spend Christmas chasing losses. I had a choice between driving a few hours to a local casino or flying a few hours to Vegas. When I saw how cheap the flight was the decision was pretty easy! Here's my tentative itinerary: When - Dec. 23-26. Arriving late tonight and flying back Saturday afternoon. Hotel - Bellagio. I have a comped fountain view room. Never stayed at Bellagio before but I've gambled there every trip. My last couple trips I chose to stay in a bigger suite at Mandalay Bay. I figured I'd sacrifice a better strip location and view for a bigger room and more resort credit. But this time I'm gonna try the Bellagio to see if it's worth sacrificing a bigger room and resort credit for a standard room in a higher end hotel and better location. I guess I'll find out which is the better option for me! Food - $250 resort credit. I have dinner reservations for the Mayfair Supper Club and Spago at Bellagio. Planning on having breakfast at least once at Sadelle's at Bellagio, maybe more if I like it. Also planning to have lunch at Din Tai Fung at Aria. I am definitely going to Circa this trip and will likely try Saginaw's Deli. Gambling - $500 free play. Think I'm gonna try to burn my free play in a high limit video poker machine instead of the penny slots this time. Will also play tables and slots of course. I'm thinking of going to Caesars to get a player's card and match to diamond (if they still have that promotion) and will check out Circa one day. Looking forward to sharing my experiences with everybody! Thanks for following along!
