    My Trip Report

    I just can't stay away. My high roller friend is back in town for a VP tournie, so I figured that was as good an excuse as any to swing through town and make use of some of my offers. Going to be a bit of a hit and run - short trip, plus I'll be working for some of it. But, quick Vegas is better than no Vegas.

    I'm flying in late tonight. Booked three nights in a Luxe Suite at the Plaza, then two nights at the D. Except, really only one night since I'm taking a 1AM red-eye back early Saturday morning. Because I never learn. And because I need to turn around and travel again for work Sunday night.

    Plans include:
    • Bartop VP at Plaza and the D
    • Andiamo's ($100 F&B)
    • Oscars Happy Hour ($75 F&B)
    • Cashing in FP around Downtown ($300 QQQQ, $300 Binions, $75 the D, $120 Plaza)
    • Some Random Slotting Around
    • Sports Ball Watching
    I spent the weekend in Pittsburgh for a sports extravaganza. Watched Penn State (boo), the Penguins game Saturday night (woo-hoo), and the Steelers game yesterday afternoon (argh - but ultimately woo-hoo). I was supposed to be driving a couple hours north to visit my grandmother this morning before rushing back to catch a flight from Pittsburgh, but a winter storm is moving in which makes that plan unworkable. Guess I'll be checking out Rivers and Meadows casinos today instead. At least, I will if I ever managed to drag myself off the couch.

    I'll be doing this semi-live, so expect lots of random, sometime blurry pictures throughout the day and an attempt to get up to speed at least once a day or so.

    @eliza - back in Vegas! Have fun! Too bad about all those Pitt/Penn teams .... lol.

    Look for @wasilla and chat with him about Alaska (although he lives just north of Anchorage, somewhat further north than you and your dad made it to.

    Following along.

    Right. I’ll regret it later, I’m sure. But it was $3 after the voucher I got from the fiasco last time I flew frontier. I literally can’t help myself.

    Take us through your freeplay like last time.... it was a winning combination with each audience cheering explosion at every hit. Good luck. (and check on grandma-ma...this storm looks cold even down here).
     
    At last, and finally it's close.

    The Meadows is always a stop for my wife and I because we stay at the courtyard across the street by the outlets when we go to WVU games.

    Good luck and have a great trip

    Rivers casino is meh. Perfectly fine, but nothing super amazing. If I still lived in the area and worked downtown, I’m sure I’d be here all the time. But, I wouldn’t go too far out of my way for it. The sportsbook seemed nice and would probably be a great place to watch a game.

    Lost $16 doinking around - nothing fun to post. Didn’t find any decent VP pay tables. Primantis for lunch and then Meadows.

    Kielbasa and cheese. Sandwich of champions. I think I’m going to need a nap after that.

    Meadows is a nice decent suburban casino. And the ponies were running which I always enjoy. Again, not really a destination to me, but if you are in the neighborhood it’s worth a stop.

    Lost $15. Nothing exciting.

    Probably going to head to airport early and get a bit of work done while waiting for my flight. Get a bit of a jump on the week and hopefully make my Tuesday through Thursday a bit easier.

    I might have to make a trip out to the east coast just to visit that sammich chain.

    Good luck, win money!
