The only other modification to the above is that I will probably go see the dolphins at Mirage more than once as I seriously love them, and we may go see Skintight instead of Jubilee, as I ave seen Jubilee twice and am curious about Skintight. I'll post a full trip report when we get back, meanwhile, everyone keep your fingers crossed that I do well on Video Poker!!!!!
