    I gotta say I have no idea how this TR is gonna go other than being semi-live.

    One reason is that I'm kind of doing it backwards - the usual trip routine is:
    1. Degen the first weekend
    2. Meet some friends and chill for a few days
    3. Degen for a week to wrap up
    Parts 2 and 3 are getting reversed this time. Plus the whole thing with handpays and taxes is bumming me out. SO I'M ALL MIXED UP!

    So I have no idea what's gonna happen when I hit the ground.

    Single night (Sat 13) at TI just to check it out. My attempt to seed them with $500 coin in in July failed, so I booked a paid night at a decent price and I'll give them what I expect to be enough play to cover the room, see what they say about that, and then what kind of offers I get.

    Two nights at Palazzo (Sun 14 - Mon 15), got a good offer ($250 FP, $50 RC) after staying there one night in July. I'll definitely be compiling stats on their slot holds on a variety of machines. Hosting a group HL slot pull Sunday night at Venetian.

    Five nights (Tue 16 - Sat 20) degenning at PH. Gonna do the Quest on slots at all the CET Strip joints probably Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. Also have last year's Diamond Dinner voucher left over, gotta use that.

    Six nights (Sun 21 - Fri 26) at Cosmo using my 2 Gold tier nights and 4 nights on a marketing offer.

    There was a while where it looked like my regular trips schedule might be interrupted, so I decided to splurge and book a Mint "suite" on JetBlue for the flight to LAS. Booked it for $599, then a couple of weeks ago it dropped to $399 and I was able to get a partial refund of $125. So it cost $475. I usually end up paying about $350 all in for a JetBlue flight with a 2nd bag fee and extra space seat up front, so I basically got their first class seat for $125.

    It's gonna rain cats and dogs all night and then flash freeze, but looks like my flight is going to thread the needle a couple hours before the ice starts. I have a backup flight booked on Southwest for Sunday, but I really wanna get out there on schedule. Fingers crossed...

    Have a great trip and good luck. TI is my primary property in Vegas so let me know if you have any questions or need a host. I would recommend hitting up Pinball and Top Dollar in the HL room. Watched a guy win $25k on TD and I always have luck on Pinball.

    A lot of them
    The longest I have ever stayed was eight nights - did it once and never again - I got massacred so I hope you have better luck. Four nights is all I and the bankroll can handle nicely. I’ve never flown JetBlue or stayed at TI or PH and will be interested in reading your report on these. Wise decision to save the best (Cosmo) for last. Have a great time and win big!

    Holy crap this Mint suite is great!

    Airline food porn? This was all actually pretty good for someone who only eats breakfast once a week.
    Chicken crepe with oyster mushrooms, cheddar cheese, truffle bechamel
    Bacon Potato Hash Brown with a baked egg. The sauce on top is "green tomato ketchup."
    Fruit
    I forget what the shape is called but that thing next to the butter is a salt & pepper shaker
    IMG_0032a.jpg

    Little amenities bag with a pair of teeny tiny socks, a little pair of fingerless gloves (ROCK 'N ROLL!), a little freshen up packet with a lotion, chapstick and facial spray (? !). And little ear plugs. And a full sized eye mask. A little over two hrs left I think, would be great if I manage to slink down and nod off for a couple of hours. I think we get something from MilkBar before landing.

    I don't know where you fly out of, but keep an eye on the prices, you might get lucky.

    They dropped the price from $599 when I booked a couple of months ago to $399 within the past couple of weeks. They had a LOT of Mint seats for $399 on the two non-stops from BOS over this week and next week. That's a downright steal. Flight ended up being only 5 hrs 15 mins, which is a bonus, but it flew by.

    Checked in at TI, signed for my CL and got a slot voucher, hit up the CVS for some booze, etc. Gotta make a small side trip next door and then gonna hit the slot floor and get some play in before the Pats game.

    Paid $30 for "Express Check In" at TI, guy manning the line says if you paid for early check in, you can get in line. Well, thanks. Only two agents, then they added one at 11:00am. Took 45 mins, no bueno for 30 bucks. Room is fine, on the 36th floor, which I guess is the top floor, high ceiling. Not pic-worthy really, but fine.

    I'm coming from JFK in NYC. I've seen as low at $499 which isn't much more than the lowest costing 1st class flights from NY. $399 is a steal.

    I'll be watching for slot updates on the TI floor. Flying Frontier for the first time to Vegas, so will see how it goes, can't wait to hit the slot floor at TI and we love the beds there.

    Hope you get some early luck this trip! Wow, two weeks- I'd LOVE to do that but know I'd never survive it! Looking forward to eventual pics seeing how it's done! Good luck and hope the group slot pull is fun and profitable!
