    My Trip Report

    Day 0

    My TR’s are usually pretty long and I try to make them picture heavy to keep the audience occupied.

    This year due to the advancement of technology and readily available Wi-Fi everywhere, I will try to do my very first Live TR followed by a long TR recapping pretty much every single moment upon my return. In addition to all of that you can follow me along on Instagram (IG): jaytee_perry and Snapchat (SC): jt_perry

    I’ll be using IG to post up food pics, and put some pictures/video content in my feed and who knows maybe even do a couple of live streams!

    I’ll be using SC to try and capture the moments, they disappear within 24 hours, so be sure to follow along! I don’t know why but I tend to give preference to SC > IG.

    (I’m hoping that I don’t catch a severe case of ADHD (ohhh flashing lights!!!!) as soon as I land and forget to post for you guys).

    June 17 – Four Queens for Fremont Experience

    June 18-21 – Wynn

    June 20 – Day Trip to Grand Canyon (Will probably be a lack of posting, due to no Wi-Fi)

    June 21-24 – Cosmo

    Every time I go, I always have this huge “to-do list”, they’re not even hard things to complete but I only end up completing about half of them.

    This time it’s not different. My hit list this year is as follows:

    - Play the Silver Strikes machine at the 4Q and try to win one! (What do I do after I win one?)

    - Play some JoB DT and over at MSS and try to win one of those scratch cards! (Is every card a winner?)

    - Go on a ACG Coupon run

    - Grab an alcoholic slushie and roam Fremont St at night again (Can that be my drink comp?)

    - Eat at In-N-Out & Shake Shack (Maybe do a comparison of the two?)

    - Play some VP at The Bond bar (They still have that automatic ticket drink comp right?)

    - Be a little more adventurous when ordering my comp drinks

    That’s it for now folks, thanks for reading!

    Wheels down in (See Countdown Timer) hours!

    Looks like fun and a lot planned, hope you get at least half of them done! I also have a list that I hope I can get through, the planning is half (okay maybe not half) the fun.

    So my countdown timer was wrong but I didn't know how to fix it. I land in LAS at 3PM.

    But here's a pic telling us about Vegas Secret Menus from an inflight magazine.

    I gotta admit, I knew about none of them. [​IMG]

    The timers are a bit tricky, even when you pick your time zone, in my experience they don't reflect the right hours. I usually go on Google to find out how long it will be exactly till vacation day and manipulate the timer until I get close enough.

    Thanks for the secret menu, the Le Cirque one sounds amazing (but expensive as hell)

    Lol, yeah the only thing I can probably afford on that menu is a slice of pizza

    Just touched down, waiting to see what kind of Economic car Thrifty has in store for me. If only this line would move faster

    Good luck on your trip!

    And to answer a couple of your questions, every scratchoff at MSS is a winner. Minimum $2 for quarters+, and $1 for nickels/dimes.

    And yes all the Cosmo bars have the ticket system. But also your first drink is covered by your $20 buy-in.

    The ticket system at Cosmo has mixed reviews, some say more tickets print than they will ever use, some just hate ticket systems. That said, the bar is nice and the bartenders are attentive to your needs.

    Finally got free wifi! I ain't paying QQQQ $8.99 for their wifi. Had the Prime Rib special, used 3 BoGo coupons for 7 people. Meal only came out to $80.

    Sounds very fun - I'll have to try Bacchanal Buffet & the souffles, since I'm thinking of doing the "buffet of buffets" for a day next trip! Will be following along.

    Only clocked in about 15 mins of VP last night. Took a few quick pics, will upload when I have a stronger connection.

    Slight change of plan, headed to the Grand Canyon today, will once again, be lacking on the updates.

    My snapchat is pretty lit though right folks?

    So I accidentally signed up to use their $20 a day WiFi because I thought their Resort fee was mandatory, until I went down to inquire, so gonna try to make the most of it
