    My Trip Report

    I am checked in and packed for my 21st trip to Vegas! That has to be a lucky number, right? I would call this a solo trip, but I'm meeting up with so many people, it's not really! LOL My flight leaves at 8 AM Tuesday morning, which means I will have to be up no later than 4:30 to get out and get to the airport. UGH!!! And EVERYONE who knows me knows that if I am up before the sun rises, it can only mean one thing.... VEGAS!!! It will be nice to have a full day there on the first day, I just hope I don't peter out by 6PM.

    So, what do I have planned? I think I have planned way too much this trip, and something will probably get canceled. We'll see. I doubt I'll be able to keep this totally live, but I'll do my best to post updates!

    Hotels

    I am starting at Cosmo for 3 nights, comped, no resort fees. (and with today's news, I hope it's not my last time) But I am paying $30 a night for the fountain view. I'm going to ask for a high floor in the Blvd tower, but we'll see. I'm hoping that since I will be there early I can get one, even if I have to wait a while to get in the room. Maybe try the $20 trick.

    The last 4 nights I will be staying comped at Bally's, and I think I'm getting a $35 gift card or something like that. My plan is to put in a minimum amount of play there and put in some good play at Mlife.

    Food

    I have a few new-to-me restaurants lined up and some old favorites!
    I have reservations at Overlook Grill and Jaleo at Cosmo. Also plan to hit The Henry for some breakfast when I arrive.
    Reservation at Giada. I really wanted to get back to Martorano's but it looks like they will be closed by the time I get there.
    Hoping to make it to 8 East this time as well.

    Events & Gambling

    This is where it gets a bit crazy. I think I have 3 group pulls I'm signed up for. One of them at the VMB meet up on Friday, one at Rocktober on Saturday, and then one with Brian Christopher on Monday, downtown at Plaza.

    I'm planning to do a day of Mlife casino tours. I have some MyKonaami freeplay. And of course, I must do a stop at the Bellagio Conservatory.
    I have a bunch of people who I told, sure let's meet up for a drink, or some slots, or some video poker, etc etc. So we'll see how that goes.

    Pool time? TBD

    Monday will be a downtown day. I have freeplay at Circa and Plaza. Also food comps at both.
    I need to do a lot of videoing for the channel. And I HAVE to play some Mississippi Stud! I'm hoping to repeat the QUADS I hit at the local last month!

    And as usual, there will be drinking and gambling and raspberry lemon drops and gambling and of course WINE with dinners and gambling!

    It's been over 5 months since my last Vegas trip and I AM READY!! Hopefully, I can get to sleep early tonight. Ya right!

    Our Lucy who is now 10 years old. Hard to believe. She sleeps with me and usually hogs the bed.

    But when she saw the suitcase come out, she went to her closet spot to pout.

    I have an 8 am flight out of PHL on Tue. We'll be taking off together! Lucky for me I live 20 minutes from the airport and don't have to wake up until 5:30, out the door at 6:00.
    I'll be at Palazzo while you're at Cosmo and at Bally's while you're there. You have a lot planned (3 meet-ups!) but it looks doable. I'll message you if I'll be driving downtown in case you want a lift. I have trouble getting myself to play vp on the Strip knowing they're keeping another $5 every time I get a full house or flush. By the time I hit $50 that should be in my pocket with a 9/6 paytable I'm seeing stars.
    Safe travels.

    I'll be at Cosmopolitan Wed. I think we're both going to group pull Fri.

    I also noted the news about the sale. I'm eager to ask my host what they think. I'm sure it's way to soon for details. Still, if I see you in Cosmo, we can compare notes.

    Sounds like a great trip planned.

    Dont take the last Blvd Tower fountain view high floor room!

    I am no planner and I deem you to not be over planned. You just have some things you want to do!
    I learned my lesson years ago. Three of us on a golf trip. One seasoned traveler, my fifth or sixth trip and a newbie. Newbie wants to see everything. I made a list of 20 possibles. We hit maybe 3-4. No time! From that time my only plans were tee times and maybe a couple of restaurants.

    Yes, let's go win!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Thanks! I would just be happy to get a couple of 1K royals, even if it's not a handpay!

    Haha, thanks! I guess I have few things that are time sensitive, the rest I can just wing it!

    My flight leaves BOS at 7:45am so it looks like we’ll all be racing to Vegas. Also staying at Cosmo tomorrow night. Headed downtown on Wednesday after lunch to move to The D. I’ll be at the Wynn on Friday for the group pull but hope to see you at Cosmo. Might hit up the pool on Wednesday morning. Good luck and see you there.

    Good luck Alice! Go get those Royals and AWKs!

    FYI - when I was at Paris last month they moved around many of the machine banks but our “favorite” was just moved about 15 ft towards the high limit tables room wall, away from GR Steak. Still the same number but rotated 1 position to the left.

    I’ll be watching!
