    My Trip Report

    Headed back for a short four night trip at Bally’s with Mrs SF, Twins and MIL.

    Mrs SF and MIL will get to see Celine Dion one more time, La Reve and a trip to Bally’s spa.

    Meals are planned for Sekushi, Carlitos Burritos, Gangnam Asian BBQ, Lotus of Siam, Bacchanal and BLT.

    A trip to M&M store, coke store, and It’s Sugar for the twins. Hopefully somewhere in the is time to play.

    Most play will be at Bally’s but planning a couple stops at Cosmo and maybe Cromwell or Caesars on our walk abouts. I have artsy nannies lined up for two sessions so Mrs SF and I can spend some time together.

    Looking forward to time at the Lobby bar with nice drinks and hopefully some wins. Not much drinking as I have back surgery shortly after returning.

    Not promising live with all the events planned but I will do my best

    You got it, I will post a few half naked cigars just for you but I am still conflicted whether I will smoke so close to surgery. Maybe I will go with the beg for forgiveness instead of ask for approval. Or maybe I will just chew them like my dad's friend used to do. I never saw him light one. Not sure just yet, stay tuned

    Just don't inhale. You should be fine. You'll get more smoke from the environment in your lungs!

    Thanks Rooster but I finished my taxes and realized that although I lose enough to cancel all the wins in deductions, it throws me into higher tax bracket and increases SS med, decreases dependent credits and increases some other tax. So even if I break even I still loose a bunch. Still plan to grind the TCs for comps but maybe at the $5 bonus poker or "dirty word" JOB level. I know JOB is taboo but when I am grinding, the $$$ goes a lot longer on JOB than Bonus. I promise not to post any premium quads on either BP or JOB but will probably go degen TDB anyway :jester:

    The early morning quiet before the "get up, get ready, load up chaos" begins. By chaos, getting twins ready, loading 6 checked bags and a few carry ons into the van, dropping the crew at outside bag check, parking car, security and on and on. Last night was a short one with the last minute packing, twins waking up and me just not being able to sleep. Up a couple hours before the alarm. I am all packed just need the rest of the group to get up and going. Wife and her mother are seeing La Reve tonight so hope she can rest abit before then. She got less sleep than I did.

    So, many of you have posted photos of your pets lying in your suitcases while packing. Last night both twins were inside the large 4 wheel suitcases we plan to check playing and having a big time. These are loaded with their clothes and toys for the trip. When asked if they wanted to go on the plane in the suitcase or in their seat we paid for, both opted for the suitcases to play with toys. Well.....I think we won't have enough room to fit you in so guess you better sit in your seats. Besides, you can't see out the windows. Well, ok. Photos are on my wife's phone so maybe I can figure out how to get posted later.

    Twins are getting up and my MIL is down so the chaos begins....until later

    Strange feeling, for the first trip ever, I am heading to Vegas with about $100 on me for tips, snacks etc and will get money when I arrive. Hope it works out or it will be a boring trip.

    If you’re already planning to go to the M&M Store, I would hit the Hershey’s Store, too. My kids liked it much better than M&M. Granted, they were 12 and 10, so quite a bit older.

    Thanks so far we are about 75% complete with the getting ready to go chaos. Last minute details and a couple suitcases then we head out. Instead on clan I should really call it a traveling circus

    Great they both love chocolate and there is only so much to see at the M&M store. We’ve never been to the Hershey store so looking forward to it. What kid does not like chocolate?

    I will try not to disappoint but may be trying to cut back on tax forms. Finished my taxes and looked at the hit I took cause adjusted gross income was high. Didn’t matter I lost more than I won. Need a new strategy but expect I will go into degen mode about 15 minutes in.

    We are here...

    Great flight twins did wonderful except a little pressure on landing. Great limo ride had Robert again. Met at the casino by a host who already checked our room status and pushed things along. In the jubilee tower first time but looks just like the resort towers. I will take photos later but now I am down getting money and waiting for the Vons delivery

    Big shout out to Las Vegas Baby Equipments Rental. Met us at airport with car seats and remainder of stuff was already at Bally’s when we got here.

    Ran down to get keys for the adjacent room and got 35 minutes play in. A quick ass kicking but turns my way as I have to leave. Bummer. Start TDB then DW then BP before I hit a groove. Recovered half so I will take it

    Day 1 recap

    Yesterday was busy but great. Arrived at hotel and Vons delivery was already calling to deliver, room ready and rollaway beds on the way up. We had decided takeout from Sekushi so I headed down, got money, takeout and met Vons all in one quick trip. Last trip was a couple hours waiting for the beds and Vons was an hour late

    My wife and MIL loved La Reve. It was a show they could see again. I was back down and played a couple hours to hit my TCs for the day and finished up $800. Nice

    Several BP quads and one hand pay
