    My Trip Report

    I did one last year and tried to update as much as I could and will try one again.

    Flying our of YYJ to Seattle and layover for 1.5 hours then on to Vegas.

    Travelling with the in-laws for their 40th anniversary and will be their first time in Vegas. Will be meeting 5 other friends down there as well. Checking in to a Studio Terrace and will try $20 trick for a fountain view.

    Will be taking a lot of videos and pictures this trip so I will post a bunch of those.

    A couple of things that are planned so far are Frankie's Tiki Room, reservations at Raku, Top Golf, whiskey tasting at MC (MyVegas) and possibly Matt Franco and will try and make it to Fremont at least twice. Other than this we will be playing it by ear.

    For gambling I mainly play VP and a few slots here and there, will also hit some roulette up.

    Cannot wait!

    Well, I'm glad I couldn't sleep. I leave in about 8 hours and didn't bother to check the weather. I did not pack for 30 degrees hahaha. It's been -30 here all week and have a bunch of sweaters packed. Sigh

    Ended the night down about $100 gambling on slots/VP/roulette. Hit up Secret Pizza at 2am and it was packed so it took us 20+ minutes to get some but it was worth it. Will try and get some shut eye for 4-5 hours before I'm up and about again.
