    My Trip Report

    Buckle up dudes, it's that time again (already?!).

    I have been having Vegas withdrawls. @MCann and I planned this trip before 2020 came.

    And since I was last seen dying in Caesar's Palace, I'm due for a fuckin' redo. Unfortunately, I will not be eating alllllllll the foods I wanted to eat, since Ri Ra isn't open yet, Cosmo is iffy, and my options may be limited. FEAR NOT! There will be food.

    Since I have my car, I might want to hit up some breweries (are they open?!), check out Red Rock at least once! And find all the lizards. Because it's summer and lizards need friends too.

    I will admit, this year passing by, skipping 1 - 2 of my usually timed Vegas trips, I've been getting a little.....


    We start this trip with me being nearly $3k in the hole already.
    The last couple weeks have been incredibly stressful - and I just moved to an awesome new apartment closer to work - but I'm in Burbank now, and my awesome apartment has a price tag (it's less than $3k, I promise!). Warner Bros Studio, Disney Studio, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon are all so close - and I have so much great food nearby!

    Wicked limited bankroll this trip - but I'm taking advantage of Cosmo FP, Bellagio FP, and birthday FP at Luxor (hopefully?) and Sahara . Any other birthday ideas are appreciated!

    And now, nearly a year to the day that we met, the dynamic duo is back again in their favorite city! To eat some foods, drink some beer, and win some goddamn moneyyyy! (It's my birthday month so maybe I can win a handpay on Kitty Glitter? Stranger things have happened!)


    Here we go!

    Chloe doesn't care that I'm leaving.

    Jackson acted like I was a stranger in my own home after I put the suitcase in my car! He made sure he had his own reservation for dinner!

    Voted beer, because you know... beer! I’d be interested about hearing about Bazaar Meat so I voted for that as well. Have fun you two! Free play hand pays are absolutely the best...:thumbsup:

    We got dinner planned out, but I couldn't bore the people with another animal poll ..... though that would've been fun! @breanna61 can I has more than one poll in a TR? Or is it one per TR?

    I voted for cheese and baked goods, since it seems like those could be readily folded into existing plans... poor poor @MCann lol :p:feedme: Best wishes for your shenanigans :jester: Excalibur, Park MGM, and Luxor apparently all do B’Day free play, and I think Mirage does too? Taking a look to find others that aren’t just like a random giveaway that’s likely $1 or something like that :nono: Don’t forget to load any myKONAMI/myVEGAS FP before you get into NV :)

    I think it only allows one. @Sonya, is there a way to add multiple polls?
