    My Trip Report

    Oh boy! Here we are again! So, I always stay at the Venetian or the Aria, but felt I needed a change. So I actually decided to pay for a hotel and picked the Downtown Grand, mostly relying on Matt Bridger's blog and advice. I just came back from Disney and my feet are a mess and I love the idea of a bunch of casinos in a really tight radius.

    I went to my local casino yesterday and walked out over by 400$ which never happens so hopefully the luck continues. I just took our my Vegas purse and found over 140$ American in there, so things are looking up.

    As many of you know, I'm a minimum better (50 cents or 60 cent) and I gamble ALL DAY LONG. I don't have many pics of wins so I tend to post pics of the slot I'm playing regardless of winning. If you find it boring, let me know, I'm on the fence whether to continue this practice of mine.

    Expect food porn. I intend to cab it for one full day at Aria/ Bellagio and one day at the V/P 0 I need my Sushi Samba!

    I'm flying out at 7am tomorrow should be in Vegas before noon. Ready for an adventure!

    I've been to LV 31 times and every time I've been on the strip... I am working up to a downtown stay sometime in my lifetime... looking forward to following along and seeing what you think of it.
