In a taxi heading to Dublin airport to make my ‘6 monthly’ trip to Vegas from Dublin. This was originally meant to be solo trip number 2 but a friend of mine is coming along too. He is a proper gambler so do not envisage him slowing me down. I am happy to point out that I have a very understanding wife who allows me to scratch my vegas itch and leave her alone with our son. I had booked one night in the Cosmo and 3 nights in the Bellagio but have just changed it to one night in the Wynn (comped through Wynn Slots App) and 3 nights in Bellagio (Fountain view room, $350 FP and $200 Resort Credit). I have stayed in the Wynn over 5 times before I am looking forward to having 24 hours gambling there and possibly getting back on their Radar. Mrs M loves the Wynn and will most likely join me for my next Trip next March. This is the first time I have booked a room through a host versus through the Mlife site, not sure if it will make a difference with Back-end comps but will keep you posted. My two most recent trip were in March for my 40th (https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/this-is-40-bellagio-and-cosmo-march-6th-12th-craps-vp-slots.160014/ ) And last September when I was Solo (https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/first-ever-solo-trip-craps-vp-slots-jerry-seinfeld-queen-bellagio-sept-6th-10th.154713/ I play a lot of Craps, a lot of VP and a lot of Slots. If Mrs M is with me I will typically go for a few high-end meals but that is unlikely with my friend (lets call him ‘C’). C is booked into Park MGM for the 4 nights. My wife was suggesting I let him stay with me and change my room to a Double but my response to her was “But what about when I am bringing hookers back to the room?” - which got an eye-roll. Seriously though, I did consider it, but it would take away from the vacation to have to share a room so I didn’t offer. I arrive 6 hours earlier than him on Thursday so will get some serious play in before he arrives. C is more of a poker and Black Jack player, so I will be ‘forced’ to partake in some of that too. I am attempting to organise a Group Slot pull in the Cosmo at 130pm on Saturday and we have 7 people confirmed so far which is pretty good. @Crawfordshire organised a great one last September which I am trying to replicate. No plans set in stone at all. I would typically have at least a show and restaurant booked at this stage but I am going to go with the flow this time. Def Leopard are playing this weekend as is Bruno Mars – neither is really getting me excited but I would probably pick Def Leopard if pushed. Also tempted by Bill Maher in the Mirage on the Saturday night but it is at 10pm so kind of takes up a big chunk of the night. We might check out On the Record in the Park MGM and have a voucher for free entry for two people though MyVegas. I have a good feeling about this trip so expect to see multiple Royals and Craps’ rails full of black chips. Also expect drunken nonsensical updates.
