Prelude: Sycuan is an East San Diego County casino that’s about an hour and 45 minute drive from home that recently got added to myVEGAS. With a Saturday night stay already booked later in July, one day I saw a two-night weekday stay available in the app so I snagged it with the idea of just getting away and working from the hotel room for a couple days. (You can use 2 rewards every “rolling 7 day period.”) It worked out perfectly when I called to book and the first day they had available for a two-night stay was Monday, July 5, which I had off from work in observance of Independence Day. I also snagged a $25 food reward for House of Fortune, the Chinese restaurant which is currently offering only a take-out window rather than seated dining. I had never been to Sycuan before, but I have played the golf courses they own about three miles from the resort. I had hoped to play there on this trip, but there was a big junior tournament scheduled for my dates. The plan was just to explore the resort, enjoy some pool time, eat some (hopefully) good food and gamble a little if they had nickel video poker.
