    My Trip Report

    Just recovering from my turkey day food coma so time to start this trip report. This is a relatively quick trip but all I could coordinate with flight prices and remaining vacation days. The idea for this trip came about 2 days after I got back in October. 4 Queens was nice enough to send me a good free play offer so off we go.

    Flights:
    Depart BOS on SWA at 5:05am. Yah, way to early but the point redemption was pretty low. Very quick transfer in Nashville, I think 35 minutes, then arrive LAS about 10:00am. Just a carry on this trip due to the short time between flights.
    Depart LAS on AA at 10:58pm on 12/1. I chose this late flight to be able to redeem my Dec free play, have a mostly full day of gambling and eat a good meal before departure. Should get back to BOS around 9:00am after a shortly layover in Philly. Once back it’s off to work for half a day.

    Staying this trip at The D, as usual. I like the corner king and it’s a short walk to Vue Bar.

    For the first time in a long time I’m renting a car, only for 2 days. The primary reason is I have to get a COVID test before I can return to work. I think they prefer it be negative but they’re pretty lose about rules. That is scheduled for Monday morning, drive through at Walgreens near Sahara . Should be fun. Then I am going to do a little tour of the town. Plan to hit South Point for their gift card promo, maybe a drive to Seven Magic Mountains then who knows.

    Dinner on Sunday is a Barry’s Prime at Circa with @eliza. Can’t wait to check the new place out. Nothing else planned for meals yet, probably wherever I can get a last minute reservation.

    Sunday apparently is Small Brewery Sunday so I hope to hit a few around downtown, try some good beer and support local brewers. Hopefully there not too crowded with football watchers.

    Otherwise this will be the usual hours of grinding a Vue Bar. I do have the ACG free play coupon to use at GG so that will probably start tomorrow. I have some fsp at Wynn so will swing by there on Monday and hopefully get a chance to say hi to @Flowers.

    Ok, big decision time. Flight leaves in under none hours but I need to be on the road to the airport in six hours. Sleep or stay up till it’s time to leave?

    All for now. I think the dog is going to vote for sleep.

    I vote sleep. Don’t want to start Vegas with sleep deprivation. But set at least two alarms.

    3-4 hours sleep will make all the difference.

    Ok, the ayes have it. Off to bed for 3 hours. I’ll save the sleep deprivation for work on Wednesday.

    Worst nap ever. I usually don’t sleep well before a Vegas trip but not sure trying this time was worth it. Up now, showered, had some cereal and off to load up quick. Next park and fly then Logan. A teleporter would be so much easier. I could be there already.

    Safe drive down. No traffic. Logan is surprisingly busy for 4:23am. Boarding soon and on to Nashville.

    Saw sad Encore Boston Harbor in the drive down. Hopefully the state will let them reopen again soon.

    Arrived Nashville early so no crazy OJ sprint through the airport to make my flight. Pretty busy here. We’ll see how full the next flight is.

    Good luck! Curious to hear about your food choices and how your reservations work. We fly in on Wednesday.

    Have fun at the D. I've heard it's been pretty busy lately. Circa pushed craps up to $15. If you play any bartops, let us know!

    Still using free play leftovers. I’d say this is a good conversion.
