A little pretrip background as I sit here and watch my WVU Mountaineers get back on track versus Baylor. My family vacation was interrupted when we were evacuated from Holden Beach NC because of hurricane Florence. My next trip was supposed to be in September to San Antonio to see my brother on October 31 until the 5th of November. A couple weeks ago he lets me know the Lakers play the Spurs on the 27th. I was able to come out early for the Lakers game but figured staying at his house the whole time would be a bit much so I thought, why not a one night trip to Vegas since it’s a lot closer to San Antonio than WV. So a call to southwest to change the date and one comped night at PH and it’s all set. Flight to SA is tomorrow out of Columbus. Lakers game Saturday. Then Monday at 7 I’m on a flight to Vegas. I land at 7:50. Looking for somewhere new for breakfast and considering anywhere since I know the room won’t be ready. Maybe Peppermill since Ive never been. The rough plan is slots at Cosmo in the morning, Lunch at the 3rd floor bar at Twin Peaks. Then work my way up the strip to hit up my favorite tables: Let it Ride at PH, blackjack at Cromwell and craps at Harrah’s. End up somewhere to study the lines and play vp while I make my sports bets for the weekend and some future bets. I’m hoping the World Series is still going to make a 4 team parlay with one NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB game. May do a nice dinner at Gordon Ramsay Steak or just grab in n out or earl of sandwich. No other plans really. Would like to check into China Poblano for their Golden Pigs but not many meals in a short trip. I also want to see the new Bally’s lobby bar since we are staying there in March. Flight out isn’t until 3 on Tuesday and I’ve got nothing planned for then.
