    My Trip Report

    Hey Vegas friends! So it seems like the waiting for this trip has been FOREVER! So, leaving tomorrow at 830am and hope like hell I get an early check in. Why? I’m making my first gamble of the trip. About 3 weeks ago I had an old coworker contact me asking if I was interested in jumping ship from my current organization in SoCal to join his organization in... wait for it... ARIZONA! So, some things happening at work right now at least made me think it would be worth an interview or two. When are those interviews happening? Today, tomorrow at 12pm, and Thursday. So I’ll need a room QUICK to be pretty comfortable with an interview tomorrow after I get in. COME ON NOMAD, You can do this! If not, I told they guy that I may be interviewing walking up and down LV blvd... :kill:

    So, solid food plans are:
    - Buddy Vs
    - Holsteins with VMBs most gracious host @44inarow
    - Din Tai Fung with our very own YouTube sensation miss @Astribling
    - Terrace Point Cafe for breakfast
    - Hopefully GR Steak on Thursday
    .... and whatever looks good in between!

    There are some “If this happens, then _____ Happens so Thursday night is looking a little iffy at this point. But a guy can be positive a let this all play out.

    Gambling you ask? Slots/VP for sure. Baccarat, craps, and some good old Mississippi Stud/UTH action but I’m staying the hell away from blackjack this trip. It’s just been... BAD!

    Okay kids, I’ll try to check in every now and then to provide some live-ish Vegas action. Jer, OUT!:thumbsup:

    So I’m having all sorts of the “I’ll be in Vegas in the morning” feels...

    Quads on Mississippi?
    12 banks in a row?
    Finally hit that last number for the ATS?
    Crazy carb overload time?
    Alcohol in large quantities?

    Are we there yet???? :thumbsup:

    1 full ATS, & >2 halves of them,
    that's my request.

    and maybe a two way player controlled hard way parlay hitting in <10 attempts.
    (I'm thinking either hard 8 or puppy paws 10)

    I’ll be at Cosmo whenever I wake up on Wednesday morning, I’d like to get a little money back from them since they’ve had the upper hand lately (but not too much, right @carolineno ?) I’m sure we’ll run into each other at some point. :thumbsup:
