    Grabbed food from Aloha Specialties for lunch at my desk.

    Going to a Raiders Game was not remotely on my radar, so I did not pack appropriately. The only thing I have with pockets are jeans. It’s going to be a long, hot walk from Mandalay Bay. Should be fun though and I bet there will be beer.

    For anyone considering a game a couple of notes:
    • No bags allowed besides the clear plastic ones or a small clutch. I didn’t bring the clear bag I own (didn’t think I’d go to game). I have a small clutch I’m going to try. I think it just meets their guidelines. It was free so if it gets refused everything can go in my pockets and it can get tossed.
    • Proof of vaccination is required. I was able to download the Clear app and get my information accepted. The website seems to say this must be done 24 hours in advance. I did not quite meet that timeline, but the app is showing green so I think I’m good to go.
    • There is alternative screening available for people who can’t get app to work. But it sounds like a hassle so I’m hoping to avoid. A copy of vaccine card (physical or photo) should work.

    Excited and a bit envious that you're going. Hope it's not a cluster.

    I give it a 50/50 chance of being a disaster. I hope they worked some of the kinks out with the concerts and preseason games. Whatever happens - it will be an experience for sure. Uncle really wanted to go and I enjoy pretty much any Sportsball game. Especially when there is beer.

    Uncle said he bought us “nosebleed” tickets. I should have realized he was lying.

    I always get the tower opposite of yours (smoking floor) and my room a couple of months ago looks exactly like yours.

    I keep forgetting all about that The D / Golden Gate coupon. Thanks to you, I just did the outline of my December trip and the only thing on there so far are hotels and using that coupon.

    Actual celebration. Best NFL game I’ve ever been to. Which isn’t hard. Since I’ve been to like five total and never one row back from field. I’m letting crowd thin out. Going to wander back to strip and make my way north - eventually get some food and find a way home (deuce? Uber?).
