    My Trip Report

    My first post here and therefore first trip report. I am leaving tomorrow night for Vegas coming home Tuesday am. I was in Vegas last year this time for my son's 21st bday. This time I am going with 10 friends to bowl the USBC Open Championship at the South Point. I used that as an excuse to get 3 more days in Vegas as we don't bowl until Sunday and Monday.

    Me and few friends are staying at Harrah's and others are staying other places.

    Plans for the trip include BJ, Craps, VP, and at least one Poker tournament. Also a cabana at the Harrahs pool on Saturday. We are looking to have a nice steak dinner one night. Have been to the steak house at Planet Hollywood. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

    Planning to update as much as I can. Sometimes the alcohol might get in the way. Looking forward to trip. Tomorrow can't get here soon enough.

    Have a great trip... looking to follow along.

    As far as steaks go, Ellis island is the only steak I’ve done in Vegas as we plow through a meal to get back at it I prefer a home grilled steak.

    When wifey and I go for the 1st time together I have promised her dinner at Hugo’s Cellar.

    And the trip!

    I hope you encounter more strikes bowling than the Braves do when up to bat! :D
