    My Trip Report

    It's that time again - wrapping up some things in my home office (which has been my work spot for the last 3 1/2 months) then it's off to the promised land. 4 nights at Mandalay Bay. 4th of July weekend but I don't know what to expect as far as crowds - we'll see and I'll attempt to give some live reports on how things are in the South Strip (vibe, COVID stuff, etc...). Hopefully there will be a jackpot or two to show!

    The agenda

    Leave around noonish
    Park the car and pretty much stay put between the resorts on the South Strip
    Lot's of pool time
    Say hi to Luxor and Exaclibur - maybe NYNY
    Slots mostly, but I might have to experience Bank Teller Blackjack and Craps for a few hands/rolls
    Food - see what's open and just wing it

    If Vegas wasn't so close to me (ability to drive as opposed to flying) I wouldn't be making this trip as I'm pretty sure this Vegas isn't back to being My Vegas yet, but what the hell. Room is free and I like the drive. If it's not for me I'll hit the eject button.

    I feel something like this now...

    Have a great time! As much as I want to stay healthy, I might take a walk one morning and say hi to Luxor as well. The demolition rumors have me nervous!

    I heard that - that better just be a rumor! Luxor is my home away from home, this trip breaks a streak of 14 straight trips staying at Luxor... next two are booked there though....

    @andyg99 - when you return, can I exchange PMs with you on Luxor. I want to get your take on the resort, comps, etc. & you appear to be their biggest fan on VMB (I could be wrong).

    Have fun on your trip!

    Masks are close to 100%. A few are going with the nose exposed approach and some have them down on their necks at the machines, still fairly quiet down south

    So most are still sticking to the mask policy but as it got later I saw more folks “relaxed”... a little more busy but not for a holiday weekend, I’m guessing more will check in tomorrow. Biggest win was about $300 on Buffalo Grand. This included a 10x minor hit for about &270

    Definitely let us know how the pool is. We are checking in at Mandalay on the 7th and we hope the pool is 100% open.

    Having breakfast at House of Blues, had reservation but it wasn’t necessary. Tables are spaced out and place is about 20% occupied Up since 6, pretty quiet now

    I went for the omelet

    FYI - last night had a bit of the munchies at about 10:30. Pretty much all the places to get a bite in the Shops at Mandalay we’re closed already except for RiRa, hit the food court at Luxor and the only thing opened was Johnny Rockets but there was a long line. Usually on a holiday weekend I’d expect those places to be open much later

    Spent about 90 minutes at the pool. Not very crowded, everyone spaced properly. Then when I left there was a huge ass line as they were only letting in people as others left. Lots of kids on that line. 100 degrees, kids, waiting on line - no thanks! Get to the pool early!

    Snap a pic of our happy place, Ri Ra! We so miss that little slice of heaven.

    Win big!
