    My Trip Report

    Looking to go down there for March Madness Wednesday and come back Sunday. Might stay additional days if needed.

    Enjoyed the premium room last time so booked it again.

    All the flights are full out of the local airport so having to drive down to Chicago for the flight. One coincidence was that a coworker of mine is going to Las Vegas on the same days and just happens to be at the same hotel. Our flight times out of Chicago are about the same time so we will be car pooling.

    That's pretty cool!

    Perhaps your employer will need a couple of volunteers to work from Vegas from time to time... :D

    Have a great trip!

    Vegas Wisconsinbly, or Nevadably if you prefer! :beer:

    Standby gods worked and I got on a flight that gets in around noon. I’ll have to cancel my backup flight that would have gotten in at midnight. Imagine that will take a while but at least I’ll get my points back.

    Have fun! Did you fly out of ORD or MDW? Stayed at the Flamingo last week, flew MDW instead of MKE, since the price was so much less.

    Have a great trip!!!

    Room is ready now. Got the premium room. Requested closer to the elevator this time since I was at end of the hall last time. Got put in the Spa tower which is perfect because I plan on spending most time at the pool. 7th floor so the view isn’t as nice but I like the room a lot better. Has a real a table for eating whereas last time it was an awkward lower coffee table.

    Agree on the table in the room. When Paris remodeled they eliminated the table and I do miss it.

    Do some sports bets and then anything as I please. Done a bit of video poker so far. Was going to bet on the 76ers money line but in the end couldn’t bet on the game if i was going against the Bucks. It’s been a long day so far so I took a nap for a few hours once I got in my room. Looking to explore a bit now

    If anyone is curious, this is the new sports book in the Linq. Guess they wanted to use a lot less room for it than previously 0B56472E-0594-4926-BD24-485E93D1B2DD.jpeg

    Was playing face up Pei Gow. Put $200 in and was losing the whole time. Was running low on funds so just went “all in” and played all the progressives (I wasn’t playing them before). I hit 4 deuces and got a payout around $500. Overall down $50 so far but played a bit so far so not bad

    Compared to other weeks the place is packed! Every table is full. At least at the flamingo. I went over to Mirage to just check it out and it wasn’t as lively
