    My Trip Report

    Hi!

    I went to Las Vegas for two weeks from October 24 - November 6.

    I worked for 3 days, the rest were all spent gambling, drinking iced coffee and sleeping.

    I stayed at:
    Luxor
    Ballys
    Fremont
    El Cortez
    Treasure Island
    Flamingo
    Bellagio
    California

    And just in case that isn't enough, I also checked into Mirage but did not stay (to get the freebies with my offer)

    I do not know how you live trip report people keep up with writing every day. You deserve a medal.

    I wanted to get this out before I leave again (in 20.5 hours!) so I rushed through the end and likely missed 383487 typos. I am sorry.

    Unrelated fun fact: I am supposed to be on a trip to Taiwan / Palau right now. Instead of swimming with jellyfish, I have found myself playing a fun game of "how many times can I change my flights and hotels for my upcoming trip to Vegas"!"?

    As always, love your reports. $4k on one machine without a handpay (or a 1099) is incredible.

    I'm too afraid to go to AC, so my gambling has been online when I get an email offer. Hit a royal for $1k the other night, which was great!

    Thanks for the report, really enjoyed it! I'm pretty amazed at your stamina and willingness to stay at so many properties even on a long trip. When I first started visiting our favorite city, I would book a different hotel for every night of my stay. Then I sat down and figured out how many hours of my trip were spent standing in lines, dragging luggage, and getting stuck in some of the crappiest rooms in Vegas, like a room at the Imperial Palace on the ground floor with a view of the loading dock.

    I've also realized as a smoker, that while I love the NYNY casino and restaurants, I just can't stay there anymore because it was too expensive. Everytime I went downstairs to smoke, it cost me $100. Now it's either Flamingo or Bally's. Although my last trip to the Flamingo was horrible.

    $70 bucks a carton for Marlboro's ain't bad, I pay around $60 in Omaha, but I ran out on my last trip and had to buy a pack at Walgreen's at $14. Not quite as bad as $16 I once paid at Caesar's. Fuckers.

    Good luck on your next trip and post some pics of your pug if you can, they are the absolute best dogs. Mine passed away 2 years ago, and I still think about him everyday.

    Wow! I’ve never had even a quarter of the luck you had on any Buffalo machine! Come to think of it, I think my biggest win on any Buffalo machine was less than $150. That was a fun read! Good luck on your next trip!

    I hope you have a fantastic trip!!!

    I have an ad on my Facebook feed for door to door car service to Atlantic City for $199. It is tempting. Congrats on your royal!

    Aw, I am sorry about your pug. I actually do not have one, but am completely obsessed with them. People keep buying me pug things, little knick knacks, christmas tree ornaments, I have pug socks. I even have a "portable pug" which is a pug made out of cardboard that you can dismantle and put in a tiny pug suitcase to take him everywhere you go. I am a crazy pug lady.

    Thanks so much!!

    @vegas superfan - Enjoyed your TR. only one bra penny. Need to switch over to abandoned TITOs during the pandemic, I suppose.

    OOH I have done that. One was successful, one was not. But the bonus is that if you forget to remove it before flying home, you don't have to explain to TSA why your bra is full of change.

    Oh man! I can't wait to dig into this. I just booked a random Vegas trip for January, so I'm back in full planning mode. I always find some gems in your reports to add to my to-do list.

    Protip: do not arrive downtown at midnight without a car. It is impossible to find anything open. Even Uber Eats is a dead end. Sigh.

    Thanks for the report. I'm guessing your favorite word rhymes with luck. . Enjoyed the view of Vegas from your rooms.

    I just realized I am fat fingering the reacts on here and unintentionally agreeing with people who are saying nice things about me when I am aiming for the heart thingy.

    You can stop at Starbucks first and order a pink drink!
