I'm bending the rules just a bit and posting the night before I head to Vegas. I'm getting up and heading directly to the airport in the morning, so I'm moving forward with the TR a smidge early. After my last foray to Vegas got cancelled due to illness, although not THE illness, I'm stoked to be heading back to my home away from home for a two week long working trip. Depending on what time zone you are in I could be technically getting to Vegas today. The Hotels 4 Nights - Palazzo - playing in the 3 x $25,000 slot tournies promo 2 Nights - Planet Hollywood - only staying 1 night but double booked due to work obligations 3 Nights - The D - Vue Bar & Football Watching 3 Nights - Cal 2 Nights - Rampart on free night rewards won from their August online game The Gambling I only have a couple of long play days in mind - particularly an NFL Sunday bellied up at Vue Bar and a day slotting up and down the strip. Otherwise, I plan on bopping around all over town hitting up locals casinos and bars and generally doing whatever I want, because .... VEGAS! The Food So far I only have two reservations - Mizumi Teppan to use up my birthday F&B credit from the Wynn status match and é by Jose Andres which has been on my bucket list forever. Very much looking forward to both meals. Hoping to get into some old favorites and check out some new places on the fly - being solo and flexible makes this much easier. Fingers crossed. The Misc. I'll be spending time down in Henderson visiting family and getting in some pool time with the babies. I'm working from my room which is always a bit of a challenge, but both weeks are short weeks for me which makes it easier. I'm hoping to check at least a few things off of my constantly expanding Vegas To Do List including the new Pinball Hall of Fame space, Resorts World, and maybe, finally, getting to Red Rock and/or Valley of Fire (but don't hold your breath) I really enjoyed hitting up random locals bars for a drink and whatever VP sign-up bonus they are running the last couple trips. I have a few new (to me) places on the list for this trip. I've been considering going down to Laughlin for night. I've been back and forth on it a dozen times. I'm just going to play it by ear based on how both work and the trip are going. As always, I'm going to do this semi-live. Expect random, blurry pictures of VP wins, food, drink, and random Vegas throughout the day. I'll try to get caught up to live at least once a day, but no promises.
