I think I've only done one TR years ago, so I think I'd better throw another one out there for my upcoming annual summer trip. Love staying at PH, even though the pool is "meh". Here's the setup: -Flight: Leave IND at 12:10 on a direct to LAS. Southwest, of course. Paid with points, early bird purchased. So round trip was what...70ish? Sweet. -Stay: Comped at PH all five nights. Made diamond last year thanks to badge chasing (twice) and the "doubler" last June. So I'm going to enjoy this while I can. No way I'll get close to renewing without a hell of a run and some tier credit bonuses. Should easily get to Platinum for next year though. -Pools: I do love sitting by the pool in 100+ degree weather. I decided that if I was going to be at the PH pool, I'd better get a cabana, so Groupon to the rescue. And look...they had one for Bally's as well. So I've a cabana at Bally's on Monday, PH on Wednesday. $220 combined for a total of at least 8-10 hours of pool time...I'd lose more if I spent that time gambling. -Pool Books: I posted earlier for suggestions on pool reading. Ended up getting four books: "Being Oscar", about Oscar Goodman. "Blood Aces", about Benny Binion. "High Heels and Headdresses; Memoirs of a Vegas Showgirl". And "Eyes in the Sky", a new book with a collection of short but true adventures of the old days. Thanks for the recommendations. -Shows: Seeing Def Leppard on Tuesday. Not a huge fan, but they fit in quite well with my "I've gotta say I at least saw them in concert" agenda. Also seeing "Love" on Wednesday night for the 6th time. I've no idea what I'll do with my two free diamond tickets. -Food: I've my $100 dinner credit. I'll most likely use that at Martorano's. Ate there last year and it was amazing. Gotta do it again, and do it right. I'll probably hit Battista's as well. Yes, I'm a Battista's lover. Sorry not sorry. Earl of Sandwich, of course. I've a $50 MyVegas credit for Excalibur's steakhouse. Maybe sushi, depending on how the gambling goes. Thinking Triple George whenever I end up going downtown. -Gambling: Lot's of VP, of course, even though I'll be at CET. I'll stick to BP at the bars, maybe some DDB out on the floor. Going to see if I can find something doable in the HL rooms, maybe some $1 triple play if they have it. Going to focus more on 15-$25 BJ. $25 had scared me years ago, but I'm more comfortable accepting a bad session and living another day. Also going to try and spend some time at Cosmo. I like PH as my favorite CET property, but if El Dorado ends up cutting them lose, I'll need to find a new home. Not sure if the other CET properties really appeal to me as much. -Downtown: There will be at least one trip downtown, of course. No idea what day/evening. We'll see if I need to escape the strip. So that's the plan. I'll spend today doing laundry, dropping off the pup, watching a couple "Ocean's" movies, then hit the airport tomorrow. I've got the Tapatalk app loaded, so hopefully I'll keep you updated If anyone will be around at that time, let me know! Always open to grabbing a drink, food, or lounger at the cabana.
