    My Trip Report

    Eeeeeeeeeeee! I'm looking forward to this one! I'm leaving tomorrow morning, flying out at 8am Ottawa/Toronto/Vegas. Should be in Vegas by 1pm. Staying at the Aria - four nights comped and one night at 69$ plus resorts fees, 50$ for food and 50$ for gambling.

    This should be like my other trips: a lot of food, much Keno, more slots and some drunk rambling.

    Food wise, the usual suspects: Carbone, Sushi Samba, Julian Serrano etc. This is going to be epic. Here goes 5 days without speaking to another human being except to order food and booze.

    Here we go AGAIN!

    Yeah!!! I second @breanna61 ... JenBeau trips are always wonderful. Have a blast and I'll be following along!

    PS so glad you're staying at your love, Aria, versus a letter hotel that annoys you. Enjoy!

    Yessssshhhhhh.... I love me some @jENBEAU trip reports!!!!!


    Since you are staying at Aria (probably my favorite place in Vegas)... I recommend the dim sum for lunch on the weekends at Lemongrass. Muy bueno.

    I have also had great service at the bar at Javier's. Get the tamarind or piña (pineapple) margaritas. STRONG BUT GOOD.


    If you get tired of the line-up at Aria then go to Jaleo at Cosmo for tapas, or any of the Block 16 joints.
     
    Great Western Road Trip 2019!!!

    The last few times I went to Lemongrass, half of my noodles were made of onions. Those guys’ fascination with onion baffles me.

    Excited to read your report. I originally booked Aria but changed to Bellagio. I’m like you - no human interaction unless they are bringing food or drink. Now I can live through your Aria trip!
     
    Vegas Virgin (again) Trip - never stayed at either hotel.

    When your first flight gets delayed and you’ll miss your connection but they stash you on an earlier flight. What a start!

    Yahoooooooooooooooooooooooo.............My favorite person to follow. I'm a big Keno player too. I've been on a hot streak lately and have padded my bankroll pretty good for my upcoming Vegas trip. Good luck and hope to see alot of wins at Keno!!!!!!!!!

    Aria has some decent Keno machines near the cashier cage. Good luck and enjoy your break. Cheers.

    That’s the spot where I can be found 12 hours of my Vegas days!

    Made it to Toronto. Now let’s see what problem I encounter with my other flight!
