    Mine is Hugo's Cellar. I have a credit from the Four Queens app I need to use.

    I also want to go to Railroad Pass casino. I am running out of new (to me) casinos.

    I may also try not doing an itinerary. I normally by now would have 5676543 things on it, color coded. But I have been so insanely busy that I haven't been working on it.

    A triple tournament. Two of them I already have invites for. The third one is "buy in" based on performance in the first two, or earning a certain number of points (outside of the tournaments) within a certain time period. I have done single tournaments before but nothing this elaborate.

    Not sure. But I have some surprising gaps in my LV experiences; some pretty basic things I repeatedly plan to try, then never seem to achieve.
    • I've never played video poker in LV
    • I've never walked into, or sat down at, a non-restaurant bar in one of the resorts. My LV alcohol consumption is either while dining, or from cocktail servers on the casino floor. I'm intrigued by all of the VMB postings about bartop VP, drink tickets, etc.
    I've been inside Cosmopolitan at least a dozen times. Stayed there four times in the past year, going again soon. The Chandelier is just this big purple-lit space I walk around. Never into. That should probably change.

    I've sat at non-restaurant bars but I don't drink in Vegas. I play video poker while turning down offers of Bailey's to add to my iced coffee.

    I lost precious Vegas time due to the pandemic so I'm going to splurge and treat myself to something special when I'm able to return. LOL

    If MLife continues to send comp offers for Aria, it's one of the higher end properties that I haven't stayed at yet so I wouldn't mind giving them a try for a few nights.
    I don't normally do the celebrity chef restaurants or the higher end places too often, since I usually travel solo and end up at some casual restaurants instead. Although, there are a few on my list that I would to try like Oscars Steakhouse, Morimoto's, Gordon Ramsey's Steak, as well as a few others.

    Surprisingly, I've been visiting Vegas for well over 20 yrs now and I still haven't been to Ellis Island. LOL Needless to say, that's high on my "to do" list for sure.

    I started a list of restaurants to try when I finally return to Vegas and it's over fifty places. Guess I'll be eating real good.

    I started a list for my next trip, inspired by @Spivderman

    “Earn” a drink ticket at Cosmo, try the famous ramen at Momofuko, play the dark side at craps, few others.

    I’m afraid I’ll have to add “play at a $15 craps table” since so many trip reports tell of high mins at the tables:-(

    High Roller. Always wanted to do it, just never got around to it.
    Ellis Island. Love the look of that place.
    Leave with a positive balance on my BR... Although that one is a well distant third.

    I always have a new-to-do list. Usually I only get a few of them done. High on my list for my next visit is a solo trip downtown on the first full day. I have 2 food credits at Four Queens. I also want to pop in at the Griffin or Atomic Liquors. A Circa visit too.

    Hopefully I’ll win enough for another list item- pro massage and body treatment at the Cosmopolitan spa!

    I’m currently planning a mid-May return. I’ve been away since January 2020. As a former 11 year, monthly visitor to the Hard Rock, I need to find a new “home base.”

    Certainly, I’ll drop by the Virgin property, but their aversion to bartop VP, has me seeking greener pastures, so I’m gonna stay at Circa this trip.

    It'll be about 10 years in between trips by the time my next one rolls around so there's plenty of new things to do! Will also my be wife's first trip.

    - High Roller, because it's there
    - Red Rock Canyon, have never been and would love to go for a hike and take in views of the valley and city from there
    - Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson One, it's the only current CDS show in Vegas I haven't seen
    - Any of the new casinos that have open since the last trip, just to take peek and grab a chip from each to add to my collection
    - Hit a Royal, still waiting....

    Hit Virgin and pick up some souvie chips. Hit the strip since parking is free for most places, plus I haven't visited the strip in over a year and so many months.

    Thankfully I've actually done that twice!

    This is a trip of firsts for me:
    Staying at Cosmo
    Eating at all new restaurants (except for my must do breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi)
    Seeing 2 new shows
    Experiencing MGM pool complex x2
    (Would love to add a Vegas hand pay as a first as well!)

    It is going to be a fantastic trip!!!

    I'm going to go check out Virgin. Probably not to play but to check out the place, catch a couple bars and maybe get lunch. Plus it's a good excuse to trundle over afterwards to Double Down a couple blocks away and get my Ass Juice on.
