    My Trip Report

    Okay. You guys don’t really need my usual boilerplate intro, do you? I mean...I talk about how boring my trips are; I mention a few restaurants I might be hitting on this trip and then try (without much success) to shoehorn some song I like into fitting my narrative. :rolleyes:

    So, instead of all that, I’ll just say: I’m heading to Vegas tomorrow (I swear to God, Delta, if you f*** me again...) and I’m going to try to post as many pics and drunken observations as I can in this space.

    There should be food and booze pics and hopefully some chip and/or handpay porn.

    I’ll be joined by the (very) old man. I’m sure we’ll have a good time. Hopefully, the TR will be reasonably interesting as well.

    And because there’s never a bad time for Wilco:



    Hope you’ll join us mañana!

    Aw, yeah!

    I'm taking my mother and my two aunts to Mandalay Bay tomorrow, same days as you (5/14-5/17). Looking forward to following along with your shenanigans.

    Have a GREAT trip Carve! I was so sorry your last trip derailed. (Though you and your pops handled it like CHAMPS, with your A/C contingency plan!)

    Have an amazing trip, and following along!!!!!

    These trip reports help all of us to not go down to our local casino as much because we’re tryin too save the bankroll for the big trip to Vegas in the future. I never win as much at our casino as I do in vegas but I gamble all day for 5 to 8 days while in Vegas so it might be I am investing more time at the tables than at home.:woohoo:

    A half-assed TR? :ssst:
    I sure hope it's the bun on the port side.
    I'm a left cheek fan!

    Wishing you and the old man a great trip, @thecarve! :D

    How about suggestions for dinner tonight? I haven’t had time to do my proper pre-trip daydreaming and have nothing lined up for tonight.

    I think tomorrow is going to be steak and Wednesday, maybe Bardot. But I need an idea for tonight. What sounds good?

    Definitely not food porn! (Not 100% sure it’s even food)

    At least it can only get better.

    Good luck @thecarve !
    I assume you will spend a significant amount of time in Cosmo's HL room?
    I may come say hello if I make it later this week.
