    My Trip Report

    First time posting a TR but have creeped on many so I took note and will organize bulletin style. Please bare with my possibly delayed reporting :)

    Originally planned on going in April but decided to move up trip due to uncertainty if this will be a better time to go then a month from now. I will be going for 3 nights with the possible add-on of 4 nights depending on gambling mood and epidemic stuff. I will be traveling with my partner of 4 years whom I introduced Vegas too. Now she's hooked. She never stood a chance the way us VMB'ers do it in Vegas!

    Background: 29 yr old low roller who is from Los Angeles so as many of my local angelinos.
    I was exposed to Vegas at a young age. I was 11 when my sister took me to Excalibur to see Tournament of the Kings. Fast forward to today. I am now a semi degen slot player but started with blackjack, video poker, and poker because I love having an edge with strategy. I will play slots now mostly at various denoms.

    What to expect?: Many...Many... Many drinks... Also I will be posting my adventures including food pics, semi to big hits, and nice scenery. If I didn't post many slot pics it is most likely because I got destroyed lol but hope for the contrary. Without further ado here is my itinerary (bulletin in no particular order). I have coupon books from ACG and LVA to take the sting off the wounds I will be experiencing (setting expectations low so hopefully I win lol). Also MyVegas rewards.

    March 14 Bally's:
    1. Staying at a strip view room however debating if I want the comp value of the Executive Suite room. Will decide at Diamond check in. Will take up on the free waters that they offer Diamond at check in to keep in my room and stay hydrated. Especially during these times.
    2. I have 125$ worth of MyKonami slot play (5x25$) and my partner has 100$ worth thanks to MyVegas. I stopped giving play to Mlife so I will be hitting it and quitting it with the freeplay. I'm going to make the trek walking to each 5 hotels to collect my reward and play it all at Aria, Mirage, or Park MGM. Don't know yet but maybe you guys can suggest :)
    3. Dinner at Hugo's Cellar at Four Queens. Beef Wellington and Rib Eye Steak food porn pictures hopefully.
    4. Finish the night playing at random CET casino's.
    March 15 Wynn next two nights:
    • After checking in we will freshen up then head out for a day trip to Laughlin for the CET 10x tier credit promo :) Gonna reach Diamond Plus to keep my status for this year and next.
    • Back to Vegas I am thinking of playing at Cosmopolitan. Use points to eat at Hattie B's for their famous Nashville Hot Chicken. Have a few cocktails playing Planet Moolah (our favorite game).
    • Finish the night playing at the Wynn.
    March 16:
    • This will be our downtown day. Going to buy the 24hr RTC bus pass. First stop Sahara LV. Will be using free slot play and food credit at their burger joint (formerly Umami Burger which I love).
    • Downtown I will be seeding at Golden Gate and the D. I have American Casino Guide and LVA book so will be hopping and seeding one or two other casino's as well.
    • Food options will be Binion's BBQ, Chicago Brewery, Magnolias.
    If you won't mind the low rolling then follow along :) I will do my best to take pictures and notes to update sporadically throughout. Also stay updated for the possibility of a fourth night. Cheers! :beer:

    Yess part of my thought is that it is raining here but the rain isn't reaching Vegas for the next few days!

    Also I have to ask if your countdown place holder is for Vegas? What is this amazing time your countdown is for? lol

    Glad you asked BT - ya see, I was supposed to go on a cruise but.....
    so Vegas is my backup plan, and I plan on driving in. A drive is always good to clear my head and I’m thinking a getaway is in order. I work at UCLA and need a break!

    Enjoy your stay and I can hit you up if/when I make it out there!

    Definitely! Me and my partner were hoping to do a cruise as well. I like my odds better in Vegas comparatively to the situation. Maybe cruise in summer now. Gonna be cautious of course and avoid the larger crowds when I have to be in place for too long (ex; if I'm playing a slot machine and a group pull gets near me lol). Wash hands and use the hand sanitizer dispensers throughout casinos. Also not gonna touch my face or my partners. No way I am going to let the scenario affect me but to an extent of course. I will take mega precaution.

    Checked in 30 mins ago and was surprised the amount of people on the strip.
    Diamond check was empty. Decided to take the Executive Suite in the Jubilee tower. This one is better than resort tower because the tub has jets! :))

    Good luck BT! We’ll have to meet up another time - I’m skipping Vegas for the time being and visiting my boyfriend.

    Good luck and have a wonderful time!

    Surprised in that the number of people is bigger or smaller than expected?

    I will be curious to see what Wynn looks like as well. I am hearing offline it is very quiet and many of the restaurants are closing today.

    Enjoy what might be a quieter but hopefully still winning Vegas!
