Hello VMB members! It's time for my annual Sept-Oct journey to Las Vegas!! Last year I feebly attempted a trip report entitled "Fall After a Sad Summer". A lady friend and my Dad had just passed recently before I went, and I kept up a report for a few days until the terrible Oct. 1 shootings. After that night, I was disheartened and only wrote a brief synopsis a few days after I got back to Milwaukee. This time I'll not promise to do a live or semi-live one, but I think I'll just give a daily update with lots of pics and/or maybe just the previous day's shenanigans! My friend Terry is going this time again. We have a 7:40 pm Southwest flight from Milw. tonight stopping in Denver where we'll change planes, then our ETA in LV is 10:40 pm local. I have 3 nights at El Cortez, 3 nights at The D, then 2 nights in a Golden Gate suite, all comped. I only needed 1 night at the GG, but it's a 2-night minimum offer. Seven nights total for me. Also a connecting flight through Denver on the way back on Oct. 2. Terry's got 3 nights in his own GG suite, followed by 3 nights at the El Cortez, then back to GG for a suite for his last 2 nights. His stays are all comped as well. Eight nights for him. Terry's coming back a day after me. We'll do a Strip run on Friday 9/28, although Terry's probably just going to Circus Circus for the day. We do their $55 for $40 WinCards promo chip deal. I then will do my coupon run to Gold Coast, Orleans, Hooters, Ellis Island, etc. I'll use as many LVA and ACG coupons as I can, as I'm not going out again this year. I will meet up with my nephew who works at the High Roller gift shop again, and we'll probably do the High Roller this time. I've never been on it, and I tell that to myself every trip, lol. Saturday 9/29 I'm planning to meet up with VMB member Stu Merrian and possibly member Eliza at Chicago Brewing Co. at Four Queens around 1pm for lunch. If anyone's downtown then and interested, (and hungry) come join us! PM me here maybe late morning if you want. I just have to finish loading up my suitcase, (although I don't remember ever putting suits in it) and then off to Mitchell Intl. about 5pm! Vegas baby!!
