    My Trip Report

    On the heels of my recent trip to the Cromwell and Bellagio, I am back to Sin City.

    What: Spicole's Semi-Live(?) Trip Report: Mom & Aunts at Mandalay Bay 5/14-5/17
    When: May 14-17
    Where: Mandalay Bay

    My mother and my two aunts have been talking about meeting in Las Vegas for the past year or so. I finally offered to arrange the trip for them. My mom was in Vegas once(?) about 30 years ago, while my two aunts have only been there once or twice.

    I'm putting the three old ladies up in a Panoramic 2Q at Mandalay Bay. I have a separate room reserved for myself. The only firm group plans are KÀ on Tuesday night (I scored half-off tickets when Cirque had their sale over the holidays). I'm planning on doing my own thing for most of the trip and leaving the girls up to their own devices.

    I'm going to attempt a semi-live trip report this time. My plan is to upload random gambling and food porn via Tapatalk. There are no guarantees I will keep up with it.

    Wish me luck!

    Down -$800 at the BJ tables. Back to my room to finish unpacking and regroup. The property is busy on a Monday night!
