    The Itinerary
    The Trip
    no sleep tonight and than early in the morning walking with my suitcase to the trainstation(good workout) than direct to schiphol airport where i leave towards chicago o hare ..wait a couple of hours and than flight to vegas where i arrive approx 10 pm..if anybody wanna welcome me with a limo feel free ;):D:woohoo:
    Off to bally's where i will check in unpack my bags and go to wallgreens for some groceries than shower and directly to bed (sorry guys you have to be discplined!!)
    Next morning Tuesday April 16th first to have a relaxing early spa visit(i think 7 am) for a an houre or 2.
    Than off walking to bellagio and take tram/walk whole the way to luxor buffet(courtesy of myvegas..free ->have to stay frugal with my limited bankroll)...i know the buffet is good especially the salad selection is awesome there:feedme:
    Than i have to find me a good sportsbook to watch the champions league game of my team ajax amsterdam..they will be playing at high noon vegas time(21:00 cet) i might do caesars sportsbook as im diamond so probably can have a nice seat as well ...-> My prediction is 2-1 for juventus though(mostly i am always right with my predictions..hope im deadwrong this time though)
    Later in the afternoon i will join the vmb meeting which sybgal is hosting at ocean grill PH(24 people will be there at least)

    further things to do during my vegastrip:
    @2 mirage buffets(lunch.dinner have to do this on wednesday or thursday->free with myvegas)
    @25 dollar BJ match play at the park (myvegas)
    @ 2 MGM buffets(breakfast/dinner through myvegas as well can do this the next week)
    @second week i will do a COUPONRUN!!!:woohoo::woot: with my fellow vegasmate @smerrian
    @ ofcourse a couple of visits to Ellis island to have that awesome 7,99 steak special and the californian as breakfast
    @some other vmb/vf meetings with Patti ,nikki and smerrian and some others (probably will check out the craps meeting in the second week as well)
    @ go to the spa every day
    @use my 100$ celebration diamond dinner
    @see some shows (i think pianomen at flamingo would be a nice free diamond show)
    @ playing a lot of poker and try to minimise the table play (as on poker i normally have a positive profit on the end of my vegas trips..never lost only won or broke even on that!!)
    Anyway i will be happy in my 2nd hometown , be discplined, be frugal(but not cheap) and just enjoy all the good things of this great city!!

    Did you invest in MyVegas Chips? By default you can only use 3 comps in a 30 day period.

    Have a great trip and good luck.
