    My Trip Report

    I'm sitting in Logan waiting for my Spirit Air flight to Vegas. Filled with anticipation and possibilities. Looking forward to the future. But first I need to get through this 6+ hour ordeal. Maybe this is what childbirth is like?

    My wife and I are staying at the Cosmo tonight using our annual comped night perk of being Sterling in Identity. It's a nice perk because there are limited blackouts, so I can use it for Friday of a holiday weekend. No resort fee. Unfortunately we don't land until 11 (if we are on time).

    Meeting 7-8 friends in Vegas (total, we are 4 couples and 1-2 singles).

    We'll meet up for drinks at Bond at midnight, followed by a gambling and drinking session until late-early morning. I hope to hit my pillow by 6. We'll see.

    Tomorrow my wife and I check out and head to Bellagio. Haircuts together at the spa at 10am followed by an attempt to check in early. Then we are off to The Aquatic Club at V/P with the group for a cabana for the day. At 105 degrees plus, I can't handle the pool unless we have a cabana. Pretty excited to check out this new pool, which is positioning itself between a standard resort pool and a day club. We're in our early to mid 30's and craft cocktails, food and music at the pool sounds better than shoulder to shoulder with the young go-hardship while consuming nothing but vodka soda and Red Bull for 6 hours. We'll see.

    Tomorrow night we have group dinner at Lago at the B, and then are planning to hit Fizz in Caesars. Similar to Aquatic Club, we are looking for something between a club and a chill hotel bar.

    Just sat down, first row in the Big Front Seats. These really are fantastic seats for the price. $75 extra each way for a seat like a first class seat on most domestic airlines.

    Sunday half the group leaves for other plans, leaving 5 of us. Brunch at Bardot Brasserie (Aria) followed watching the Concacaf final (in the poker room in Aria I think), then maybe hit the pool or just gamble.

    Sunday night dinner at Rivea at the Delano, followed by MJ One. Have seen this show before and loved it. I also like the casino in MB so I'm sure I'll do some playing after.

    Monday is our first wedding anniversary. No plans until dinner, which is at L'Atelier in MGM (just the two of us).

    Tuesday we fly home.

    Boarding is wrapping up so I'm going to get settled. I plan to sleep as much as possible on the flight so that I am in position to rage as hard as possible upon landing. Wish me luck!

    Cannot beat this view for 100% free. Also got a 1 BR upgrade, which is amazing. Japanese soaking tub with a window and a sitting area.

    One night in, $2k down. Had some unfortunate luck at BJ where dealer BJ and three card 21s became the norm.

    First ones in the door at Mon Ami Gabi this morning. Going with Benedict, one salmon and one steakS. Beautiful morning and we thought we'd enjoy some fresh air before the blast furnace kicks in. Met (gave directions to) an affable Aussie booking it up the sidewalk to eat White Castle at CR at 7am.

    Mon Ami Gabi was excellent as always. Dumped some more money at a S17 BJ table in the Cosmo this morning. That point whatever less of house advantage did not come into play in getting wiped out during a horrific shoe. Checked out of Cosmo and walked next door to Bellagio. Checked in, room ready, and what a view! Lucking out on rooms if not at the tables (so far). Haircut time!
