We’re headed to Vegas again. I’m so excited. I know we were just there about 3 months ago but Tuesday is my husband’s 40th birthday and we wanted to make this one special. Just a quick 3 nighter. Bringing my MIL, Ann, this trip. I decided not to book the 5 or 6am flight this time. I’m REALLY happy with that decision. We fly out tomorrow at 11a, land at 12:06p, & staying at Paris again. The flight is only 3.5 hours, I feel like they schedule 4 hours so if they’re running late, it’s still “on time”. So I anticipate arriving around 11:40ish (as long as we take off on time). We plan on leaving for the airport around 9. It’s about a half hour from our house to walking inside the airport. I assume TSA will be quick (cause it’s IND and it’s always quick), so we should have just enough time for bathroom and coffee before boarding. We usually fly southwest, take a 2-3p flight, and have lunch and drinks at the airport beforehand. However, Southwest has greatly reduced the number of nonstop flights between IND and LAS. There used to be 6/day, now there’s 3. Usually 5a, 11a, and 7p. Blah. Luckily (if you can call flying Spirit lucky…), we’re flying Spirit this time because Southwest is having a ton of issues this weekend! Honestly, wouldn’t mind our return flight cancelled though! Our favorite airport restaurant, Harry & Izzys, doesn’t open until 11a. If Ann arrives at our house early, we’ll head to the airport early and find somewhere for airport beer! One of the best types of beer! We’ve hired a new house/animal sitter for this trip and I’m kind of nervous about it. We have an 8 month old puppy (he’s possibly a small horse instead of a dog), a blind dog, and a 15 year old pit bull who’s more cancer than dog. This person comes very highly recommended by some friends but I’m still nervous being so far away. On the agenda for this trip – craps, blackjack, craps, more blackjack, and more craps. My MIL is a slot player. She has this innate ability to pick the slot machine that’s going to hit next. We were all out there in March and she sat at a machine in Flamingo, 3 spins in, hit $700, moved to a machine near by, hit $800 on her first spin, moved to a new machine again, and hit $1050 2 spins in. Hopefully, she keeps it up this trip. As for food – Monday – lunch options include GR Burger or Margaritaville, dinner maybe somewhere in the Promenade Tuesday – MAG breakfast, possibly Beer Park for lunch, and Bugsy & Meyer for birthday dinner Wednesday – MAG breakfast, lunch TBD, and possibly GR Steak for dinner I might, depending on how gambling is going, find somewhere to watch Colts-Ravens MNF. Starts at 5:15, so we’ll see. Maybe Yardhouse for the second half or something. We have 4 celebration dinners to use between the 3 of us, my MIL still has her 2020. Between those and comps, I don’t think we’ll spend much out of pocket for food, which is nice. Since we’re only in town 3 nights, we’re planning on staying pretty close to the Paris-Linq corridor. My husband is attending a conference in Vegas 11/28 – 12/04 and I’m coming with. So that trip report will be much more interesting and diverse than this one. My goal then is to visit every resort on the strip! In the mean time, hopefully I can provide food porn, drink porn, chip porn and some good view photos on this one! Cheers and see you in the morning! Our three dogs - Charlie (the horse), Dusty (blind boy), Graham (cancer puppy) We also have 7 cats. I know, it's a lot of cat. This is Gus.
