    My Trip Report

    The day has finally arrived! My very first TR! :woot:The only thing standing between me and my 11th trip to Vegas is a day at the office. As soon as that's complete we'll be getting in the car and heading out! Wish me luck, I've heard the SoCal traffic is absolutely brutal heading there lately, but we are staying until Monday so we should avoid too many issues coming home. My boyfriend Andrew's sister lives in Vegas so part of this trip is to visit with her as well (I probably won't include much of that part in this TR).

    Plans for the trip include the following:

    -Staying at NYNY, 2 nights comp'd for Lisa from MyVegas, 1 night comp'd for Andrew from MLife. We have more nights available but not enough time off of work at the moment to use them. :thumbsdown:
    -Dinner at Nine Fine Irishmen on Saturday Night
    -Reservations for Easter Sunday Brunch at LAVO at the Palazzo :feedme:
    Slots - Looking for some that play like Lightening Link in/around NYNY, if anyone knows of any?
    -VP - I'm pretty new to VP but I love sitting at the bar, chatting with the bartenders, watching sports, and winning money, so this was a pretty natural progression. Open to any easy-to-remember advice because alcohol will be involved! Had a great time playing at Circa in February but not sure we will make it downtown this trip.
    -Maybe some BJ?
    -Planning to hit up a Strip Club since they were not open last summer when we went for A's birthday
    -Pool Time! Either Saturday or Sunday morning

    I will try my best to update as much as possible but I tend to let the alcohol flow and I also like to eat some edibles, so I'll try my best. I'm pretty new to the boards and everybody has been friendly & welcoming so far. Thanks for creating such a great environment to discuss the greatest city in the world - LAS VEGAS!

    If you'll be there this weekend let me know! I'll be the one in the rainbow sequin mask with a drink in hand! :beer::woohoo::poker:

    You had me (and many of us) with drinking, edibles, and strippers. You're on the right path.

Off to a great start! We drive into town, picked up provisions at the local Vons on Tropicana & Maryland, hit the ATM, and checked into our room at NYNY before 10pm. Nice agent at the front desk (Taylor) upgraded us to a Park Premiere room with a King instead of the 2 Queens we originally booked. No Strip view, but the room is much larger than the standard room we had last time. Seriously, the closet is HUGE! Might as well be a massage room :p We have a nice view of the T-Mobile Arena & Park MGM, probably the Mountains in the daylight. And the pool is right downstairs, yay! The drinks are flowing, we’re about to clean up and head downstairs to gamble a bit before hitting up the Strip Club!

    Here are some pictures of the room!

    So, a few notes from last night.

    Gambled a bit, made a new friend and won a few bucks on Dragon Link!

    0D252D40-2857-4A7F-B389-9AF475022ECF.jpeg

    Called around and Crazy Horse 3 gave us a free ride & entry, while some others wanted bottle service for this perk. Let me tell you, every single person we met, from the driver to the bouncer to our waitress to the manager was so happy to be there & working, and honestly even the Strippers spoke highly of the “family” they work with and how well management has handled things. Things always go better when ppl are happy at their work place! I’ll spare you any more details expect to say 1.) they do technically function as “bikini bars” so when on stage or walking around all the girls are in a thong, bra, and mask, 2.) I was told the rules “go away” in the private room for a certain amount per girl + 2 drinks, 3.) you never know where your next business opportunity will come from so keep your ears open.

    Okay, it’s pool time after a few hours sleep. Might place a Final Four bet or 12 before the games start. Dinner rezzies aren’t until 8:30 so we have a nice long day ahead to enjoy!

    Massive amounts of fun at the pool this morning! Went solo bc BF is still sleeping last night off ;) met a couple from WI on their first & second Vegas trips respectively. Told them lots of newbie info like Bellagio Fountain times, Flamingo History, where to buy edibles, etc. They called me a Vegas Veteran and honestly, that’s a compliment to me! They love sports too so we are planning to meet up later to watch some basketball.

    NYNY pool was nothing special but at the same time better than expected. No line at 10:30am and full sun by 11:30. Mask police were actually chill, told us to just keep drink or food near face & they wouldn’t care. Much better than last summer. Huge reusable cup of Miami Vice Frozen Drink was $30, cheaper for refills. Bartender explained the sizes to me, smaller one is $17 & 1 shot of booze, larger is $30 and 3 shots. Not really a “souvenir cup” as doesn’t say NYNY on it, no design either.

    Lots of people and some kids, but plenty of room to swim without bumping into anyone. Definitely would go back.

    Off to grab some lunch downstairs (maybe pizza?) and visit the MLife Desk & gamble some more!

    Visited the M-Life Desk to put free play & NFI rewards on my card, put $ on UCLA to cover, and put more money into the slots. Won a quick $30 and didn’t even spend my free play yet. So excited about my win I forgot to grab lunch :haha: so headed back downstairs now for some yums.

    So far it’s brought me lots of new friends! The night is young, and good trouble is bound to happen after refueling at NFI (where I’m sure I’ll drink more whiskey)!
