    My Trip Report

    In about 36 hours, I’ll be walking out of my last final of the summer session and heading straight to the airport! :woot: This time around, it’ll be me and my kid sister.

    I brought my sister to Vegas on her 21st and she was immediately hooked. So much so that she begged me to take her again a month and a half later for her spring break! (And who was I to refuse my little sis, right?) But with a couple of toddlers now, she hasn’t been able to make it to Vegas too often lately. So this should be a lot of fun for both of us.

    But it might also be exhausting. She is looking to make up for lost time and has about a million things planned. I’m counting on her degeneracy (she’s a thecarve, after all!) to kick in once she hits to the casino, though. So I doubt we’ll do everything that is tentatively planned.

    And speaking of plans, here’s the (mostly) set-in-stone stuff:

    Saturday - dinner somewhere at Cosmo. Zuma and Rose.Rabbit.Lie are the frontrunners.

    Sunday - Brunch at Herringbone. A drink at Mandarin Bar and then dinner at Picasso.

    Monday - Lunch at Milo’s. 7pm MJ show followed by dinner at Charlie Palmer.

    Obviously, there will also be plenty of booze and gambling.

    I’m actually pretty excited about the restaurant line up. Other than Milo’s, these are all new-to-me places. :feedme:

    I doubt I’ll be able to post as often as I have on prior reports. I want to be able to spend some time with my sister without being on my phone the whole time. Plus, as I said, she has a million things planned. But I’ll take plenty of pics and update a few times a day. Hope you’ll join us!

    Alrighty, wish me luck on my finals. Nah, screw that. Wish me luck chasing that royal! :headbang:

    Good luck! Hope to see plenty of Boner Deluxe quads like 9s, 7s, and of course 6s for @wanker751. And get some multipliers with them!

    Not sure if you’re aware, but one of the best deals out there is the Cut of the Week @ Charlie Palmer. Every week, they offer a first course, family style sides and your main entree, along with bottomless wine pairings and dessert (I think) for about $58 per person (in Vegas). Let us know how the dining goes - we love food porn!
