    My Trip Report

    EEEeeeeee! It's Vegas time again! It's only been two months and yet, thanks to some crazy wins at my local casino, I decided to go back! I intended to go back in April but the plane tix were insane. So here I am!

    7 nights at the Vdara for 200$ total, although I will be paying resort fees (boo!) because my Gold status was not reached (boo twice!).

    Plans? KENO!!!!!!! Loads and loads of Keno. Some slotting, some VP if things go well. Laying low when the SuperBowl crowd gets in and, of course, trying to get a TayTay sighting.

    Food? The usual! Din Tai Fun, Lemongrass, etc. I am sad to see that Koi closed, it was my sushi place near the Aria, but I will try to find another place.

    I'm driving to Montreal this afternoon and spending the night near the airport: my flight leaves PET tomorrow at 8am, should reach Vegas before noon. Let's hope that all goes well.

    Please accompany me on a journey of low-rolling, crowd judging, Caveman adoring and great food!

    Let's do it to it!

    The hallway of abandonment where the motto is: How can you do this to us again?

    Hehe the GUYS TR lady. I liked reading your TR last time with the cat treats, food, drinks, and keno wins! Good luck!

    Are you doing anything for Super Bowl? You say you’re laying low, but does that mean staying in your room?! Looow chance I may be there this weekend so trying to get ideas:)

    Jen - always enjoy your reports, I also share your love of Caveman Keno. I hit this yesterday at Barona. I normally just play 1 credit at $5, and play maybe $100 through a machine at most, but won some on electronic roulette and tried $60 worth of $10 tries on Caveman! One more hit for 11k! Hoping this brings you some Caveman 10/10 luck on your trip. It's such a fun game.

    See, that Novotel is perfectly clean and cheerful, though stark. It is a perfectly acceptable accommodation. And yet, in Las Vegas, people complain about similar digs. This reminds me of a room NFC had at Motel 8 at Ellis Island. Perfectly acceptable...and I like the bathroom.

    That is a full size suitcase… for all of my sweatpants, tshirts and hoodies. I’m ready to class up the joint.

    I bet @Christina6001 is not in a hurry to trade Arizona sun for Canadian cold.

    Looking forward to another fun @jENBEAU (aka Mrs. GUYS ;)) TR.

    Twice now I’ve been commented on by the airport and security staff about what a busy city Vegas would be. Man. When I booked i didn’t even know it was a Swiftie event happening!

    People watching or using speakerphone without earphones is an epidemic.
