    My Trip Report

    I think I booked and then canceled 5 trips this year. Three were because the casinos were closed, two were because the vibe / fun factor didn't seem back yet.

    Last night, my wife said "Hey why don't you go Sunday morning for a couple of days." Reason #234 I love her.

    Hotel: MGM seems to really be trying to get people to go back. I had 2 nights comped at all of the nicer resorts, 3 nights at Luxor and NYNY, and 4 nights at Excal. I still have to pay Resort fees. I chose Luxor Tower.

    Flight: Southwest from Detroit on Sunday morning. No direct flights on SW anymore, but I wanted to use my points so connecting through Chicago Midway. I did not purchase Early Bird based on recent trip reports.

    Car: Hotwire / Dollar $122 total for three days.

    Plan: Daily poker tournament each day at either South Point or Orleans. Some VP and some slots and a fair amount of driving / walking around. Probably no fine dining as I'm solo for this trip.

    This will probably NOT be live but I hope to post daily updates.

    Busier here in Detroit than I thought it would be. My favorite Southwest gate agent ( friendly and funny) is boarding our flight.

    Finished 12th of 48 players. Only top 7 cash. Got too aggressive against a big stack.

    At Public House
    Casino was not dead but not busy either.
    West Tower room. Nice. I’ve stayed in Hilton’s and Marriotts that weren’t as nice as this room.

    Public House at Luxor for dinner. Used the MyVegas $20 off $40 spend reward.
    Good wings, decent burger and excellent service from the wait staff.

    Early morning walk today to CVS near Park MGM.

    I know it’s only my second time in Las Vegas but dang it I love the architecture of these big themed hotels. I love the scale and the sheer “in your faceness of it”.

    Walked through New York New York and Excalibur. Casino in New York New York looks really nice. Excalibur seem to be showing it’s age.

    I think the most remarkable thing so far on this trip is how pleasant and service oriented everyone has been.

    The lady at CVS was super nice and friendly.

    Maybe I’m just not good at poker. I’m at Average stack size and I have AK off suit on the button. Flopped two pair. Lost stack to full house. Out before break.

    Down $320 for the day. Played many variations of Buffalo. None were great and that new Buffalo Diamonds can kiss my behind in the town square.
