    My Trip Report

    Headed back to Mecca for a quick 2night March Madness trip. This is my first time doing MM in LV and kinda sucks I won't be there all weekend but still excited to get to bet on the first 32 games. I'll be staying at The Linq and doing MM viewing party at Hard Rock Cafe.

    Only plans for today are to gambol! and get signed up for William Hill sports betting app.

    If anyone is interested in MM in LV, I suggest you join the March Madness in Las Vegas Facebook group. Almost 10k members and a lot of great info on parties and betting.

    Haha great pic additions. I'm pretty flummoxed by the kleenex box though.

    Good luck!

    MM is a blast in Vegas and should be considered a bucket list trip for any college basketball fan...good luck and hope you go 32-0 on your wagers

    Made it to The Linq and was able to check in really early at Diamond desk with Platinum I'm liking this place already. Small but laid out well. Really good value imo. Next stop is Squeezed for a fresh watermelon margarita and craps at O'sheas!

    Nice, best of luck and eager to hear your opinions on the Linq. I might give that place a try in June.

    Well no table games open at O'sheas yet. That's ok I got my watermelon margarita and it's power hour so got double tequila for free! Headed to SLS now to get signed up for William Hill app. Never been there so will see what new players promo they have going on.

    Wow SLS is nice. It's so dead though. They should move this place to Louisiana, would make a killing!

    If you wanted William Hill you could have gone to Casino Royale. FYI for the future

    Came to Caesars and finally found an open craps table but quickly lost $100. Was feeling a little tipsy from my margarita so grabbed lunch (and another margarita) at Mesa Grill. Good stuff!

    You know I should have gotten 10% bonus but it didn't show up either. And I don't love the app, it's convenient but you can't see the spreads in your parlay bet tickets (unless I'm doing something wrong?). For example

    Walked to Cosmo to walk off my alcohol and calorie buzz. Promptly lost $200 at BJ then had the infamous Verbena (sp?). Pretty interesting. Would do it again :)

    I see you in front of a bartop, did they make you pay for that?
