Just getting a head start on my upcoming TR. I plan on doing a LIVE TR. With pictures. With stories of pranks (I love to prank the public to cause tons of confusion). Drinks will be involved. Gambling depending on what's up. Bankroll is currently at $500. BUT I get paid on Friday, and I only have one bill. AT&T added on $150+tax extra charges and still have not taken it off the account yet, so I have not paid that bill yet (they received my broken TV receiver, but the charges say they didn't. Insert eye roll here. But I estimate another $1-400 to my bankroll. Don't want to go crazy on the gambling. UPDATE: My situation with AT&T was finally taken care of. My official bankroll for this entire trip is $1,000. I do not plan on spending more than $200 a day in gambling, BUT you never know when the need arises to have some extra cash. One of my mistakes last year was doing cash withdrawals at the ATM on my credit card. No more. I blame the drinking. I am getting very excited for this. I will promise you this - this TR will not be as epic as @notfromconcentrate, but I will do my best to update as often as he did and include stories. I have a couple goals for this trip. The first: Win some serious cash. I would be totally happy with $5,000 as it will help wipe out my credit card debt. I am not greedy at all, so I think $5,000 is perfect for a low roller like myself. The second: Try to find @Richard Alpert. He seems a bit LOST. I would like to help him find his way home. Tuesday 8/7: Land around 10 am, probably a little earlier based on my history with Spirit. WAX to 4th and Carson. Check into The Cal. Doubt I'll have a room as early as 11 am or noon. But whatever. Grab some food, maybe MSS brunch. We'll see. I'm sure I'll be hungry. Possibly get DuPars at Suncoast??? I do have it listed in my Google Calendar for Filet Sliders at Chicago Brewing Co. I believe. Planning on buying a souvenir cup at ABC store, and a case of Truly sparkling water (singular flavor, hopefully) and filling it up with ice too. Otherwise, I'll have to carry a few cans in my drawstring bag. Gambling: Cheap blackjack, some older slots Wednesday 8/8: Wake up whenever (but needs to be no later than 10am). Uber/Lyft to Wynn (depending on cost) or take the Deuce to there. Wynn brunch ($30) Check into the Mirage (MyVegas comp). Hoping for noon/1pm early check-in. If not too tired, then get ready for pool. I want some time in the pool. I have Nacho Daddy on my Google Calendar for this day for some reason. Need to find out where it is at and plan accordingly. Gambling: Slots, most likely. VP is under consideration as well. Thursday 8/9: Wake up whenever, no later than 10:30/11am. Haul ass to Aria for Aria brunch (MyVegas). No firm plans for this day except a few hours in the pool. Maybe a nap then pool AGAIN. I go back to work the following week, so if I can take advantage of my remaining nap times during the summer, I will. I've only had 4 or 5 naps all summer, which is well short of my quota of 20 minimum. NO DINNER SCHEDULED in my Google Calendar, so I guess this is an open date. However, the Bears have a preseason game this day. Need to find a place with cheap drinks and maybe cheap appetizers. Maybe check out the Westgate since I've never been there? I know it won't be cheap drinks there, but I can bring a couple 16oz'ers. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I only plan on watching the first and MAYBE second stringers. Another option is PBR Bar & Grill. I've always wanted to try their food, and I like that they have an outside section where I can smoke. I get jittery during the games, LOL, even though it's the fucking preseason! Gambling: Slots, most likely. VP is under consideration as well. Friday 8/10: No plans. Flight for Denver takes off around 5:30pm if my memory is correct. No food scheduled for this day as well, so options are open. I return home on Sunday the 12th. I have open house at work on the 14th and 15th (for some reason, we are having TWO this year). Officially back for all day meetings on the 16th and 17th. Students return on the 20th. I am starting at a new school this year (I transferred with my principal), so I have anxiety for meeting the new staff and new students. I can be a bit of an introvert. OTHER: -Want to grab $.05 cent beers during happy hour. -Want to try a new pizza place. -Want to explore WynnCore and Venetian. Have not really spent much time in those hotels as I am mostly a CET player. I don't even know if I will play at mostly MGM properties (or even at WynnCore and Venetian) this time. I understand that splitting these up will not get me good, if any, offers in the future. I have two CET properties about 30-45 minutes from my home, so I am not too worried about the CET part. PLEASE NOTE: I may update/revise this post as the day gets closer. Any revisions made will be marked in RED. (If I can figure out how to change text colors, because I don't see it at the top, except for the BB Code box. Otherwise, I will just add it to the bottom of this post.
