    My Trip Report

    Things have been nuts at work and at home, so this will be a welcome break. Yeah, yeah, I know what you're saying...didn't you have a break just before Christmas, Dave?? So what if I did??? I'm a emotionally fragile little flower that needs frequent watering with the "water of life", a lot of artificial casino light, piped in music and fragrances, and the sound of credits rolling up on a machine to blossom, ok????

    I am really looking forward to this, it has been a whirlwind for the past few weeks. Was planning to go last weekend to line up with a work trip out west, but it got shifted a week so I lined up Friday, Sat and Sun nights this weekend (Feb 17-20) at Cosmo. Then I found out some friends were going to be in town and were having a get together on Thurs, so I added Thurs night at Palazzo. Well now my work trip is cancelled, but my boss is letting me have the time off anyway, and while my wife can't break away from work, she's ok with me going solo as sort of planned (probably just so she can have some peace and quite at home), so I'm off. And as I think @Hoofy7 and others would say, yes, you are certainly off.

    Only fixed plan is having fun with friends Thurs night, having a dram or two of really good scotch at Delmonico, and checking out the new bar at Venetian. Who knows what will happen after that...except for whisky, we know whisky (or whiskey) will happen.

    Enjoy your trip!

    I'll also be staying in Vegas this weekend - even got the boyfriend to extend the hotel reservation through Monday for the holiday off.

    I'm looking forward to watching you bloom, oh delicate irishdave!
    Put the petal to the metal! :headbang:

    Beware of the Vegas fly-traps--especially those in Crystals early A.M. :wink2:

    Have a great time! Let us know if you find the Monty Python slot machine - I want to play that when I'm around in a week and some change...

    Stop complaining. I'm sure anyone of us here would gladly wake up that early for a trip to Vegas, instead of waking up a few hours later and heading to work!!:bang: Have a great time!!
