Hi all, TT here, long time lurker, first time poster Myself and the GF are going on a trip to Vegas, back to the place where we met!! We will be going during a conference (BlackHat and Defcon) as the GF will be on a panel at BH and we will be both dipping into Defcon whilst going to various parties, trips and some gambling. The GF is not a massive gambler where as I enjoy a flutter on the slots My budget for gambling is around $100 a day so not a high roller!! Hoping to find some Moo-lah cash machines and play some LOTR and Willy Wonka! Here is a rough itinerary of some of the things we have planned:- 08/04 - Staying at Holiday Inn Gatwick Airport on my IHG points to be fresh for the flight the next day! 08/05 - Car dropoff at Gatwick Airport then lounge booked at the airport with our flight due to depart 12:00 noon (BA Premium Economy) Hotels 08/05 - 08/09 - Booked into treasure island and haven't stayed there before so will be a nice experience. Last time I went I stayed at the Flamingo and the last time GF went she was at the Bellagio so a new place for both. 08/09 - 08/14 - Staying at the Holiday Inn Vacations comped on my IHG points, off strip so will be a different experience but they have shuttles and the ability to walk to the strip so will report back on how that goes. Parties/Trips etc... (the good stuff) So we have a few parties that we have been invited to which may not be the same as other people have done previously. A few of the highlights below, not data specific but will try to do my best to update this as we go along:- Party at the D&D mansion - this should be interesting as an off-strip location - heres the link https://totalmaxhome.com/D&D Party at the Rio nightclub. Mandalay Bay Ice Bar Mandalay Bay Cigar Bar KA performance Skyfall Lounge - Mandalay All of these will be free (If we are in a good enough state to attend) so will make sure we take pics etc. Trips Hoping to do a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon and a trip to freemont street is definitely on the cards. We both just love wandering around the strip as well (being from the UK we find almost anything in Vegas bonkers! Hope to update as we go on, so excited!!!
