Initially this was supposed to be a trip with my childhood best friend of 20+ years. Her schedule changed, but I had already booked the hotel & flight so... Here we go! Since I financed a new car last month, my funds are shorter than I initially planned for this trip. Significantly. I'll have about $500 cash for 2 nights. But it's okay! I'm booked at The Cosmo - my favorite - for my free Sterling night plus paid for the other. I paid for my Southwest flight with points. I'm meeting my dad on Fri, he's taking me out to dinner (he's there on vacation for Superbowl weekend), so that's one meal covered. I have $78 in points to use towards food at the Cosmo, my BOGO for the Wicked Spoon, and a couple MyVegas rewards for a night or 2 of drinking. .....will I have enough money to play all the slots I want, along with trying video poker? I think so. I may not be able to bet as high as initially planned, but can still have fun! Suggestions on low-rollin' or fun attractions on the cheap are appreciated! Packed, and Jackson the cat decided he's coming too. His sister Chloe has better things to do, and is sitting on a blanket in the living room. Till tomorrow morning!
