    My Trip Report

    1 year? It's been 12 months since I've been to Vegas? Seems like a really long time but people had to go and eat bats so here we are...

    The Good -
    Bellagio fountain view, haven't done that before
    Bankroll is solid
    Dinner reservations at Lago, Spago, Mayfair, Carbone
    It's Vegas, if you have a bad time in Vegas it's your own damn fault

    The Bad -
    No video poker at the bar.........this is a gut punch and I've been known to get surly when cocktail service is slow at the tables. Should probably start each session with a 22 or a small champagne from the gift shop.
    Masks at the pool. This will be a major inconvenience that requires many rum runners, mojitos, etc.
    Now for the worst...I'm terrible at trip reports. It won't take long before I tire of starring at my phone like a 13 year old. I hope to provide a ton of pictures even if the commentary is lacking.

    So...here we go, flight is 6:20am and I'm wired despite a few drinks. Hope to post a few pics as we finish packing. Have no worries, as always, I'm going to give it everything I've got, lady luck please let the dice stay hot!

    Carbone is tomorrow night and I’m hoping to have evidence of hot dice by mid day!

    Packing the essentials. Flew to FL a few weeks ago and there wasn’t a drink to be had...everything closed. Can’t take that chance going to Vegas

    One year ago to the day. We typically stay at Aria but wanted to give the Bellagio a shot.

    Awake before the alarm went off. I’ve always been lucky in that I don’t need much/any sleep in order to function. I also always put in a 24 hour shift from wake up to crashing night one in Vegas, let’s start that clock shall we

    It’s never too early on vacation. Had to mix my own as nothing in the airport is open

    I like your attitude. Best of Luck. This is the perfect time for a fountain view room since being out on the street is riskier. I love Aria but you can’t beat that view at the B.

    That was my thought as well. With entertainment being limited I figured every little bit helps

    Interested in your thoughts on delta, changing planes and the airport trams. I’m flying through ATL. I feel Delta is the best airline in this situation. I’m in first and this will be the first time I won’t have someone next to me (if the country is still open in 40 days). Scariest part of the trip to me are the airports. Those subways in ATL and LAS to baggage claim are usually crowded. Not sure how the air in those germ trains is circulated.

    Round 2...Mrs. Aronius is outpacing me. History would suggest this is bad for her longevity this evening, haha

    I’ve flown Delta a few times recently and I really believe they are doing all they can to keep the planes clean.

    Common spaces in airports/subways/etc...not as confident, people still rarely respect space
