    My Trip Report

    So I set this trip up last fall because my daughter's bf wanted to see March Madness in Vegas. I'm not big on going out during busy times, but it did overlap with St Paddy's Day, so how could I refuse?

    So the plan was me, @MrsIrishDave, my daughter and bf, landing around noon Wednesday, four nights at the HGVC Flamingo timeshare, leaving early Sun am but.... He breaks up with her this past weekend! Dirtbag!!!

    But there is a huge silver lining. I can now ignore basketball to concentrate on whiskey and Guinness!! Plus I really wasn't all that keen on him. And I called my sister who lives in Cali and she's coming in Friday night to do St Paddy's with us! This is awesome!! We live on separate coasts and only see each other every couple of years, plus she has four kids between 4th and 8th grade, so she rarely gets a break. I was doing a bit of a dress-down trip with mostly pubs and such, but I decided to surprise her with dinner at Prime on Sat nite. I guess I'll have to stay respectable on St Paddy's, at least until after dinner!

    Anyway, should be a blast, whiskey, Guinness, and shenanigans for everyone...when life gives you lemons, make whisky sours!!

    I just bought more shares in the major liquor and beer companies in anticipation of another @irishdave trip to Vegas.

    But the headlines in the Vegas newspapers read "IrishDave Returns This Week, Bartenders Celebrate!". I was just jumping on the bandwagon.

    Shit, throw on a jacket and don’t (visably) piss yourself and you’ll be the classiest SOB in town on St. Paddy’s Day!

    Best of luck @irishdave ! Look forward to following. :drunk:

    Got a basic comped room at Paris too, so my daughter could use the pool...might be too windy for that but pleasant otherwise

    Buffalo Gold just said “Master Stroke”. What exactly do you think it meant by that?
