    My Trip Report

    This trip report is brought to you in part by a torbie kitten named Chloe, who just had her 2nd birthday.

    BEE089DA-8202-4089-9C6A-BC1F0CD1A157.jpeg

    Currently I have not packed yet! Well. I've packed the wine (some for the M&G tomorrow, another is a gift for some treasured people) - that's all I really need to bring, right?

    This trip is going to be way better than my lame attempt at getting to Vegas last year (remember that?! - https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/california-turned-las-vegas-potentially-7-3-early-7-4.152859/):

    So far the plan is.....brave holiday crowds to get to my hotel room on time, to get to the Cosmo, to meet up with a bunch of cool people (@MikeOPensacola , @Chuck2009x and the woman herself - @Sonya !!! come to mind).

    Slot pull, bonus rounds, winning? are practically guaranteed!! All I know is I'm in for good times, new friends, and sooo much tasty food!
    • China Poblano
    • Bouchon
    • White Castle (late night munchies, I assure you)
    • Bazaar Meat
    • Jaleo
    • Eataly

    are all on the list of noms and subject to change!

    After my flight touches down tomorrow it's time to...


    And we also might party.....


    Can't wait for this!

    Living vicariously through you.. . have a BLAST!

    Thanks dudes!!

    Looking forward to this trip! Definitely not a long enough trip but hey! :cool:

    IT’s finally Vegas day! :woohoo:

    Here’s the traffic report, I guess I could have saved $128 and fuckin’ driven..... but who knows what it’ll be like later:

    Woke up with my cuddle buddy, Jackson.
    (I got my winks in, Mike! 8 and a half hrs!)

    8.5 hours?!?!? I slept almost half that, but not quite. I'd pay someone $128 to save me from driving 4-5 hours every single time. Now go on and git herself here!
     
    Not saying not to a free fountain view suite to kick off Thanksgiving!
    Presidential Suite for the holiday woohoo!

    Love those kitten cheeks! Safe and fun travels.

    Trying to be encouraging to everyone there but I'm super jealous with so many fab board members, the queen herself, and 4th of July. Damn.

    Traffic was mellow but since I have to check this bag, the airport line will be a waiting game. The people in front of me have 2 strollers and a ton of stuff.
