    My Trip Report

    IMG_0687.JPG IMG_0689.JPG IMG_0688.JPG IMG_0685.JPG IMG_0697.JPG IMG_0694.JPG IMG_0692.JPG IMG_0693.JPG IMG_0696.JPG IMG_0695.JPG IMG_0106.JPG IMG_0108.JPG IMG_0110.JPG IMG_0111.JPG IMG_0112.JPG IMG_0113.JPG IMG_0115.JPG Hey guys... here we go...

    Pre trip - we planned family vacation to Vegas few months ago... mainly to attend Bruno Mars concert ;had it thru MGM rand rooms ready to go..And then my freaking work doing inventory errrrrr omg :automotive parts for tier one. So had to cancel the trip to Vegas and of course my client calls back and said no they decide to delay the inventory now, vegas trip is back on..

    me to my MGM host -

    Me; hey my trip is back on! I'm coming back out!!! I still want the skylofts and BM tickets
    Host; oh no, we had people on waiting list ..had to release the tickets!! And dates you need the rooms is booked at skylofts!!!
    Me; wtf!!!

    So, I know it's not their fault...I'm just pissed because my daughter was really looking forward to attend the events ...so I decide to cancel the trip...looking for other options ... can't really find any other places just think about Vegas "alright, wathever let's just go" besides friends in Vegas wanted to meet up anyhow.
    Besides, got an email from my host from Mandalay Bay asking me if I wanted to attend slot tourney so decide to go with 4 nights at 2 bedroom MB and 3 nights at Aria skysuites ..all set for 7 nights of fun(?) trip to Vegas

    13th - flying out to Vegas via southwest direct... uneventful nice and smooth flight.
    Arrived by 7 am and boom greeted by very nice driver took great care all of us... room is not ready... here's premium outlet north
    13th to 16th, 4 to 5 hours of playing baccarat @ MB and MGM first day loss of $7,500 great wtf!!!! But as of now, on 16th close to even playing more relax and trying not to chase it..
    Currently on 4pm on 16th at MB pool kicking back relaxing at Cabana enjoying the pool and massage etc.
    Photos are random lol

    When I arrived the room they had gifts from my host - pic of room, brought in empty refrigerator for us to use
    Limo service during the time we are here..etc

    Ottro Japanese restaurant at mirage awesome place spend the most amount of money here. No photo :(

    Loving the trip report Drew, GREAT job so far, and have a stellar trip!

    PS I have decided I obsess on Vegas too much....as soon as I saw the curtains I though you were at MB...and we haven't even stayed there yet (this upcoming trip will be our first).

    Love all the great photos, and I'm thrilled you and your family are having a blast!
