    My Trip Report

    I leave tomorrow for my fourth 2021 trip. Can't decide on a report title - will edit later.

    Two title candidates:
    • The Gluttony Trip. In honor of my new avatar, and because I have lots of meals reserved, and looking over the menus, no planned light fare. It's Restaurant Week in LV, and I'm visiting three Cosmopolitan participants. And first ever visit to Bacchanal.
    • The things I repeatedly plan to do, but don't trip. There are many, including
      • I've never had a drink in a Las Vegas Casino bar
      • I've never played bartop, or any, LV video poker. I honestly don't know what VMBers are writing about when they post about drink tickets.
      • Never once ordered room service in LV. I'd only want a pot of coffee, no food.
      • Many other activities.
    I guess I'll decide on a Trip Report title after I arrive and start. Maybe it'll be the "I started with a monster win" trip, or "The One when I met and hung out with Hubert Keller."

    Well I think you can knock off top 2 in one swing! Get your self some comp bar top drink. If you want to go easy play keno on the bar top machine or deuces wild.

    Good start.

    Got here easily, no traffic, no issues at parking.

    New luggage. Much better roller bag. No tipping, no lurching, no wheel drag. Holds my backpack without problem. Small comfort but makes a difference.

    First time TSA Pre. No lines at OAK so not a major timesaver.. but what a pleasure to keep shoes, belt, not remove devices from bags, etc.

    Equipment at Gate so I expect we'll be on time. 40 min to takeoff, lounge pretty empty... might be a light load.

    Feeling good, anticipation building.

    Looking forward to following along. I enjoy playing VP at the Heart Bar in Planet Hollywood in the mornings and they make a pretty good spicy Bloody Mary.

    Ok

    I've learned something

    You can get way to drunk sitting at Chandelier. I'm only 2nd drink and already blasted. And have two more drink tickets that I probably wont be able to use.

    I've lost BIG. But dont care cause I'm SMASHED. Not sure I can even walk to STK for dinner

    But great first time Chandelier and video poker

    I noticed something...these drink tickets used to be valid until midnight same day...now only valid for 2 hours? Am I reading this correctly? How long has it been this way? Hope they spit out quick enough to get my 2 ticket bourbons! How strict are the bartenders? In my experience depeding on how you are getting along with them/tipping, they werent checking in prior years.

    OK I am blasted. Must concentrate to walk. STK running behind, so waiting for my reserved table.

    Playing at Chandelier.... first ever video poker... first ever Vegas visit to any bar...

    I'm a vodka guy. Chandelier bartender made me a Cosmopolitan. But then I switched back to vodka rocks

    I kept getting tickets. So I walked away with a giant tumbler of Chopin Rocks.

    I'm have to concentrate to walk... so drunk.

    Seated first time ever at STK.
