    My Trip Report

    Oh boy, here we go!

    Context: I'm travelling solo and am a low-roller. I play Keno, slots and a bit of VP. I take and post tons of pictures of the games, winning or not, just so you get the feeling of what I'm up to.

    Food-wise, they'll be some classics - I will hit Sushi Samba when I arrive (tradition!). I will hit Noodle Asia a few times, also Yardbird and Grand Lux. I intend on trying Buddy V, I read the reviews and it's the sort of food I like.

    I'm quite lazy when in Vegas so I will hang out at the V/P, Wynn, Mirage. I'll probably cab it to Aria and Bellagio.

    I'm staying at the Venetian as part of a slot tournament - 3 nights free + 1 night at 169$. I'm quite happy with this deal.

    As per usual, I will be gambling 18 hours a day and not sleeping. Sleeping is for little girls.

    Travelling tomorrow at 6.30am Ottawa time, switching planes in Toronto and should be stuffing my face at Sushi Samba by noon Vegas time and slumped in front of Keno by 12.35pm (it's good to have goals!).

    Let's go!

    Thanks everyone. I'm packed and counting the hours. I'm watching All the President's Men as I do before I go to Vegas for some obscure reason. That's not weird is it?

    Good luck! V/P is my home base as well. During the day stop at the Fusion Bar at Palazzo casino and order a Key Lime Pie martini. Wendy is the BEST bartender, so hopefully you get her. It's delicious! Good luck and safe travels!

    They opened seats on earlier flight to Toronto - will be there 45 minutes early. This caters to my traveller anxiety
