    @luck.ofthe.draw

    Loved your trip report, putting a face to a name from @MikeOPensacola’s trip report, and all the food and shenanigans, was almost as good as being there.:wave: That was one heck of a huge and great get together :woohoo:

    Your Cosmo Golden Century win was a.w.e.s.o.m.e - you seemed so nonchalant about the win, then I looked closely and saw a $1405 win, woohoo!! You did VMB proud :cool:

    Happy Birthday @luck.ofthe.draw - can’t believe your trip is over and you’re back home with your cool cats :love:


    Next time!

    @Geogran it was awesome meeting a ton of people and getting to know some of the Vegas degens I interact with regularly! Soo fun.

    Can’t wait till my next trip! The cats did miss me though :haha:

    Wrap Up Time! -

    This, despite being shorter than my liking (not enough time for all the food!), has been one of my favorite trips! The Meet & Greet was really fun!! I enjoyed putting faces to names and talking with the few people that I did.

    The highlights of this trip were:
    the food,
    the company (Sonya and I had a fucking blast! And it was so so good to finally meet @MikeOPensacola - he is such a nice guy!),
    and those pillows at Park MGM.

    Being with good people made my first solo trip less scary, I had a great fuckin' time, ate some fabulous food, and tried new things! I introduced Sonya to Bouchon & Bazaar Meat, she introduced me to Peppermill. We had lots of good chats, laughed a shit-ton, and enjoyed some tasty drinks.

    The next trip will be in September, with a bigger bankroll, and more time to eat food!

    Now I have cat cuddles

    Don't feel bad Richard. They probably just don't have the balls to tell their wives/girlfriends to go do their own shopping. When my wife comes to Vegas with me, she loves to go shopping, I tell her to have a nice day, I'm staying in the casino. See you later.:wave: What am I nuts? Coming to Vegas to shop with the wife? That will be the day.

    Thank you @bdautch and @casinokid68 for following along!!

    Glad you enjoyed the food pics and the humor!

    This trip was exceptionally fun because I got to spend quality time with 2 people that love Vegas as much as I do, and we just enjoyed each other's company. Sonya and Mike were so easy to talk to, too! It was fun sharing stories and laughs. :)

    Let me tell you exactly what day it was. It was like day 9 of a 16 day trip where I was just getting my ass handed to me and needed to stop the bleeding somehow. So yeah, I did agree to go to Ross with the wife. It was 2014 and really did happen just like that. :(

    Spoiler: Around day 13 I hit a $5K Willie Wonka jackpot that helped turn the trip into a winner but nowhere near $5K worth.
