Hello all fellow penny pinchers, I'm sending you my love from the PNW, and an update from my hyper-focused vacation planning, after a year of being in COVID lockdown, that has gone off the rails. After being asked at a local which always has open seating, and just reopened, if I had a rezzie. I started thinking about my upcoming trip to Sin City (where sins will be definitely be committed), if I was going to need rezzies at all the planned restaurants. I had a few Las Vegas Groupon restaurants I had bought vouchers for in advance, and decided to start there with reservations. This is definitely NOT the Same old Situation. Imagine my horror when the first one I called said, and I quote, "The owner changed his mind, even though you bought it, we aren't taking it when you get here, the price is going up for this". Yes Vince Neils Tatuado, I'm looking at you here. Sounds like that owner is a Devil, and I'd like to shout at him. Shame on you Motley Crue, I'd like to Kickstart you in a place other than your heart. Anyhoozies, I wanted to give my frugal friends some love and pass this warning on, I squeezed a refund of usable groupon bucks out of the groupon, but I imagine, know that they know they have a captive audience of returning vacationers this summer, they may be playing chicken with your plans...and coups. Be careful fellow VMB'ers, its going to be a Wild Side kind of summer.
