    My Trip Report

    Its that time again
    20170413_014832.jpg
    It is getting close
    IMG_2020.JPG

    The itinerary

    First of all i am already packing for tomorrow and i wont have any sleep(i never do when going to vegas) it will be a tough journey already going with a 10 minute walk with suitcases to the trainstation where at 05:28 AM my train will get me directly to schiphol airport... I will travel 8.609 km(5 349.38 miles) if all goes well i will arrive late afternoon in my second hometown(my 30th visit to Paradise).
    i will do my routine when arriving(diamond check in,unpacking my bags,getting new diamondcards at TR booth) My usa Brother who i haventy seen in 3 years will be there too and we will be hanging out for 5 days.

    Sure Bets:
    food concerning
    # visit ellis island for a killer breakfast(californian 6,99) i also will try (NEW)the 7,99 steak special as this really looked good on pokerkrauts youtube video
    #visit Cheesecakafactory for the thai cocunut curry and the spicey cashew chicken and the steak diana/chicken madeira special
    #(NEW) try the 12$ filet mignon special at Ruths chris steak house(harrahs, also tip from kevin)
    #(NEW) try the ocean grill at PH (3,99 specials looked good)
    #(NEW) The chicken pitata at the grand lux cafe (venetian)
    # visit hash house a go go for my favorite fried green tomatoes (always a sure bet)
    # use my free myvegas buffet at mirage(cravings->always good..one lunch and one dinner)
    #use my free myvegas buffet at the luxor(i still wil try as i found it excellent but now i heard from befriended dutch couple it was less..we will see)
    #use my free myvegas buffet at MGM Grand(lunch and dinner)
    # use my free myvegas weekend buffet at excalibur( i know it isnt that good but ordered it by mistake ohh well)
    # on day one i will have dinner with the dutch couple and my brother(will be a surprise where this will be)
    ..furthermore its undecided but probably will contain visits to the paris sportbar(killer hamburger), Earl of sandwich,tequila taquiera/la salsa cantina/yolos,maybe peppermill..we will see

    my usa brother gifted me a banger brewery tour groupon so me and my brother will do that(probably on friday) also thats include my visit to downtown

    other miscellanious:
    i probably will do a coupon run with smerrian in my 2nd or 3d week i have an ACG book purchased and last year the coupon run with him was a lot of fun

    G2E..i will definately attend this on my last day in vegas on tuesday october 9th,(probably smerrian and welshblond and spouse will join me) last year it was great

    Shows....many shows to think about as my brother told me he has a bit trouble hearing i might treat him on this guy
    IMG_0997.JPG
    i already saw him once and he was great (little afternoon show)
    shows concerning i have seen many but i really loved raiding the rock vault so i might do that again...legends is also always a nice show and safe bet
    saw alot of good things about queen and adam lambert (over here and on fb)but dont wanna pay too much for a ticket as i was fortunate to see so many good concerts in my life

    ofcourse there will be alot of gambling as well we will see how evrything goes
    wish me luck ;):D:thumbsup:

    Are you taking a Las Vegas Advisor MRB with you? If not, you should stop by their office and get one.
