    My Trip Report

    Hang on to your hats gr8whitenorth and my amazing wife are about to hit Vegas for 7 nights of unabashed misbehavior.

    Our flight departs tomorrow at 10:00am from the bowels of hell; otherwise known as Pearson International.

    Our accommodations for the week start off at Mirage for our first stay there. We are spending 3 nights in a Resort Tower King largely taken care of from my business travel via Expedia. I wanted to try Mirage as spending some time North strip is on my wish list. I expect LOTS of staggering around looking for late night hot dogs or some other bad food choice.

    We then head to Luxor for 4 nights COMP'D via MGM plus F & B and some free play. We are currently slated in a pyramid corner suite but I will probably try and score a tower room. We usually always stay at Luxor and are very comfortable in the tower.

    We are using a few Myvegas rewards on this trip as always (Mirage buffet, secret garden, Carrot Top , Aria buffet, 100 off at Camelot steakhouse and a credit at Pantry in Mirage). That will help with the food purchases.

    A highlight for us (hopefully) will be a reservation at Hell's Kitchen. My wife and I have been watching the show since the beginning and are very much looking forward to eating there. Also finally getting to try a steakhouse which we have not done on any previous trips.

    We are pretty much exclusively slot players, although I expect to play some drunken roulette.

    I will try to update as things progress but I am sure there will be some gaps as the liquid refreshments start flowing!!

    1 more day of this annoyance called work then it is GO TIME!

    We stayed at the Mirage last month, make sure you use the mobile app to check in. We did and were in our room in minutes of arrival, enjoy your time in paradise.

    Bags are all packed and we are ready to roll in the morning. A minor hiccup getting my boarding pass but I am sure we can sort that in the AM. Enjoying a frosty beverage tonight and trying to have a heart to heart to with my liver. Not sure how that will work out.

    Relaxing at the lounge before departure. Made it with lots of time to spare. Enjoyed the 'extra' security screening which explains why I could not get my boarding pass issued ahead of time. Hey it's not about what I've done; but what I am about to do. Next stop the promised land.

    A little lean on the live part of this TR. Last night kind of went off the rails with my wife getting damned near black out drunk. She partook a bit much on the Mike's hard lemonade. Today was a gambling day largely at Venetian. Random picture dump coming next.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A bit late on updates. Yesterday was a gambling day. Spent a lot of time at venttian and palazzo. My wife killed it and we left about 200 up. Passed out for a while and then dined at hells kitchen. Wow. just wow.

    Today we ended up at PH and were quiet smashed upon our arrival back to Mirage. We walked away from PH way up again and God knows how.

    This afternoon we used a Myvegas at secret garden and really enjoyed it.

    Then a 2 for 1 at cravings tonight.

    We are about to give some love to Mirage at the machines with some roulette mixed in. Thus far we are up and haven't touched 2 days BR.

    Tomorrow we move to our favorite haunt Luxor. We cannot wait to get back home.

    More updates in the morning.

    Added some food porn from Pantry which was a surprise albeit pricey. The Myvegas reward took the sting out a little.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
