    My Trip Report

    Finally...after what seemed like forever, getting this trip started! My 5th visit to vegas but my first time rolling solo. Staying at Elara for the trip. My first time staying there.

    Plans include:

    Getting my ass to a sports book tonight to get some prop bets in.
    Twin Peaks for the Big Game party on Sunday.
    Drink, gamble, drink some more. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Also, my wife bought me a nice casino chip cabinet, so I want to collect some $1 chips from various places.

    Currently sitting at the gate while southwest gets things going. Apparently not all the luggage has been loaded. Supposed to take off at 1130.

    Happy travels, Moses!

    I loved staying at Elara! Easy access to Mirace Mile & PHo, Big Walgreens nearby.

    A firm no to the invitation to a timeshare presentation spiel at check-in, but I wasn't bugged for the rest of the trip!
    The fellows "checking" the keys at the elevators were very funny, cool guys!

    Have a great time!
    I hope you make a fortune off of those prop bets! :D

    RICHARD

    Thanks! I'm working on the drink like a fish part. Still have my bankroll intact so that's a win, right?

    I'm a fan of neither team but I am going with ATL and the under. But I would not be surprised if NE wins. Should be a great game regardless.

    Thanks Richard! Yeah I read good reviews of Elara. Being connected to miracle mile shops is a plus.

    I thought the cabin looked a little dark, but you'll be okay because I see you have a Lite...

    Checking in at Elara. $20 sandwich did not work. That's ok. Front desk person was very polite and supposedly gave me a room with a view. Pics incoming shortly

    Some pics of the room, per request. It's a nice room. Safe is locked so had to call front desk to send someone up to unlock it.
