    My Trip Report

    Well it has been March since my last trip. This will actually be the first time going to Vegas with a minor. I was totally against this, but my wife really wanted the 9yr old daughter to see Vegas and she said I could still drink, shoot the dice, & etc all I wanted. We are staying at the Linq. Sorta wish we booked somewhere else with the construction going on. Tag bar was one of my favorite places to hang out and play bubble craps. I’m really gonna miss that place. As far as “entertainment” we are going to see Mystere tomorrow night, zip lines on Fremont Monday night, & the high roller Tuesday night. Food options are pretty basic for us. Hash House A Go Go a couple times & random stuff like pizza & burgers. We recently moved as I took a job transfer from Muskogee, OK to Stillwater, OK. We are flying out of Wichita, Ks direct with SWA though instead of Tulsa or OKC. If ontime we depart at 3:55pm CT. We have a stretch limo reserved with presidential for round trip airport/hotel transportation. Will be using Lyft any other time and we have passes for the monorail bought. If anyone wants to have a drink somewhere, hit me up. The past trip my wife and I hung out with LB9 and had a blast. Bank roll is roughly a 1,000$ a day.

    One other thing I have planned. One of my coworkers is shooting in the BCA world championship pool tournament at the Rio this week. I plan on someday taking lyft there to see him shoot or just have a drink.

    Through security at Wichita. Got a good hour and a half to kill. The adrenaline is starting to pump though. Lol

    Tringlamone... You were a tag fan like myself. What’s the closest to it as far as vibe goes?

    Vibe? Um...haha. I didn't go to TAG for the vibe. ;) I'd say catalyst has a similar vibe, but an average beer selection. Cosmo Sports Book would be another good choice (reasonable beer choices and decent paytables). The main bar at harrahs is a different vibe, but also has a reasonable beer selection.
