Heading to the airport first thing in the morning, so I figured I'd start this off now. My wife and I had a rough start to January and needed to get away so we booked a trip to Vegas. Unfortunately, my wife has been sick with a stomach bug so there's a small chance this may become a solo trip if we get up and she's still not feeling great. Here's hoping she's better in the morning. I've only been out there once, a little over a year ago, and my wife has never been. I had a great time, though it was a much different trip than this will be. Last time was a guys trip and we spent a lot of time visiting strip clubs (don't worry, my wife is aware). This time we're planning more on restaurants, shows and gambling. We check in at Planet Hollywood tomorrow and are staying there until Thursday. Valentine's Day on the strip was super expensive and I really want to try staying on Fremont Street so we're moving downtown to the 4 Queens on Friday. We just have regular rooms at both places, but I'm hoping to snag an upgrade at Planet Hollywood since it doesn't look like much is going on in town this week. The other reason we're moving downtown is that we're going to see Blue Oyster Cult at the Golden Nugget Friday night (hence the thread title). I'm a huge BOC fan (my avatar and username are both BOC related) and was excited to see that they were on the schedule for the week we'd be out there. So that's what I'm super excited about for the trip. Other plans/must do's: - Mob Museum - Big Elvis at Harrah's - Rat Pack Is Back show - Drinks and cigars with Nordlicht. - Dinner at Golden Steer - Some Buffet (Probably Wynn) - Gambling (Craps, Slots, Video Poker - I might try Pai Gow and Baccarat) - Drinking/Smoking/Basically Destroying Ourselves Theme Song: "In a desert way-house, poised on the brink of eternity." Will plan on updating with pictures and stories! Didn't get any pictures of the dogs before we dropped them off at the kennel. Miss them already.
