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.
