    My Trip Report

    So, I was in Vegas for opening weekend last month and enjoyed myself enough that I decided to come back again. For those who followed along with me last time, this is pretty much the same trip, but I’m really going to try to come home with some money this time!

    I’ve got the first night downtown at The D. My host set me up with a suite for 2 nights instead of giving me a late checkout tomorrow. The hosting thing is still new to me, but she seems good. Shes been offering me a ride from the airport last last couple of times but I usually decline. Besides, don’t you kind of pay for that on the back end anyways? How much is an ok tip for the driver? I declined as I’m usually solo, but might take her up on it next time I have a friend with me.

    Tomorrow will be over at Caesars. I’ve got that booked for Thursday-Monday but have 2 flights booked for home. One on Saturday night and one on Sunday night. I guess it’ll depend on how The trip goes, plus I used points with southwest so It’s easy enough to cancel. I was originally booked for Cromwell, but got transferred to a basic forum room at Caesars, we’ll see what I end up with.

    Most of the “new Vegas” questions have already been answered so I’ll probably just add some drunken pics of my slot/vp wins over $100. If you like that kind of stuff then feel free to come along for the ride with me.

    Here’s the ride share pickup. Looks like it’s probably a 20 min wait.

    @subafrk - following along.

    On your limo tip question, I’d tip something reasonable. One time I took one from McCarran to NYNY (a very short trip) and I tipped $15 as that’s what I had in small bills. Only me, no others stops. I was feeling baller until I had to tip. I apologized & the driver said “don’t worry you’re a better tipper than {famous basketball player}.”

    After that comment I just tipped whatever I thought would be reasonable cab fare.

    My ride just got dropped and picked up by another driver and looks to be another 20 mins. Maybe I should have taken the limo, lol.

    Alright, I made it to The D. I’m liking this place more and more every time. I’m on the 17th floor which apparently you need a key to get onto the floor. I’m glad the lady told me because it looks like an empty floor when you get off of the elevator, lol.

    There’s a random sixer of Fiji water in the fridge, is that complimentary or $100? I’ll have to ask later.

    That water is probably left behind from the guest before you. I once got a bunch of take out containers in my room fridge. Gross.

    Please post some pictures of your suite.

    The water is wrapped in plastic, looks good to me.

    And of course, a sample of my vegas playlist. I usually play it while I’m disinfecting the room.

    Lol, amen to that! I took a line out of your play book and hit this on free play. So far it’s the best win of the night.
