    Good afternoon!
    I've been debating how early to start my trip report, but decided to do it here at work where I have a computer instead of starting in at home where I only have a phone.
    • Dates: 4/3 - 4/6
    • Where: Mandalay Bay - 2 bedroom Panoramic King Suite - and I'm all alone!
    • What: $1000 in food and beverage for little old me to use in 3 days!
    • FP: Only $175
      My flight leaves CT at 6:50am, that means I'll be waking up at 3:30am to get ready, then drive to airport parking (only a 10 minute drive) and hopefully get to the airport by 6am, leaving only 20 minutes til boarding starts (but Southwest never boards on time!).

      Arrival in Vegas will be 9:40am! Very early.
      I'm a victim of MGM's PGP (Profit Growth Plan) and my host decided to NOT give me a limo. So, first of 33 trips where I'll be taking an Uber to my casino destination.

      Day 1 - 4/3: (all plans are tentative!)
    • Checkin
    • Take pics of room
    • Fleur - for brunch and drinks
    • Gamble at Mandalay Bay
    • Ask Mandalay host if I can dump Bob Rosati
    • Red Square for 4pm happy hour - Moscow Mules
    • RxBoiler room for 5pm happy hour
    • Gamble
    • Tender at Luxor for Dinner
    • Gamble
    • If I'm still awake at 9pm (meaning I'd been up more than 24 hours), check out the new Skyfall Lounge at Delano for drinks

      Day 2 - 4/4:

    • Wake up (it will probably be like 5am cause I'm on East Coast time), Pedialyte, Extra Strength Excedrin
    • Maybe a light meal if feeling ok
    • Either walk or Uber to Bellagio
    • Lago -meet NhChris at Lago at Bellagio and let her help me eat some of my F&B
    • Gamble a bit more at Bellagio
    • Cosmo - try a Verbena, finally! - Have some more drinks at Cosmo
    • Maybe get Secret Pizza slice
    • Gamble a good amount at Cosmo - I think I want to go here for my next trip instead of an MGM property
    • Gamble at ARIA
    • Sage or Lemongrass for dinner at ARIA
    • Maybe hook up with Treyster and Linda at some point today?
    • Gamble more at Aria
    • Maybe get 5-0 Pizza slice
    • Back to Mandalay to gamble or crash

      Day 3 - 4/5: (all plans today are very tentative)
    • Wake up whenever
    • Maybe room service breakfast
    • Maybe gamble at Mandalay or go back to Bellagio/Aria depending on how Mandalay has treated me
    • Or gamble at NYNY
    • Maybe go to MGM to eat at Wolfgang Puck's place
    • Gamble at MGM
    • Joel Robuchon L'Atelier - maybe do the tasting menu: OR
    • Shibuya - do the tasting menu?
    • Plans for the 3rd day are pretty flexible
    • Try to use up the entire $1000

      Day 4 - 4/6:
    • Room Service Breakfast
    • I never play my last day - maybe go see Shark Reef again
    • Or watch an in-room movie
    • Or whatever!
    • Go home with all of my original bankroll plus a lot more!!! $$$
    • Checkout 3pm

    When I booked it, I thought I'd find someone who wanted the other room. No one jumped at it. Oh well. And no, I don't even want to talk to Bob Rosati!

    Understood. The best revenge would be many handpays at MB/mlife and then get a great offer from Cosmo!

    Thanks, pphold! I like being outdoors in Vegas. Walk will depend how my bankroll held up 1st day and how hungover I am!

    Sounds like an extensive and fun planned trip!

    Fleur for brunch is a great choice, and btw is Burger Bar still at Mandalay? That's the other Hubert Keller place I like for the foie gras/truffle burger.

    May you have swift tail winds and arrive in Vegas relaxed and ready for all the hand pays.

    I'm almost as excited for your trip report as I am about being in Vegas myself in 2 weeks! I'm glad your going to give Cosmo some play. You'll have them for an option if you can't dump your current MGM host. Good luck! I hope the slot gods are good to you. I'm looking forward to lots of food and slot porn!

    Thanks, Howie. I may forego Burger Bar as I'm not sure they take comps.
    Sin, I'm sad! :( hope our trips synch up at some point.
    Thanks Derek!

    My flight home is at 5pm on 4/6.

    This is still less than one hand of blackjack. This is crazy.

    I have to be good. NO going to Vegas.

    Kimsa70 hit some big hand pays for me.

    Have a great trip! My BIL and SIL are going to be on the same flight. They are staying at Wynn. Bring home some of that Vegas cash to Mohegan, they sure need the funds.

    Good luck Kimsa! I'm hoping for LOTS of HP's so you can self comp that limo for yourself! For $1000 food credit, we are expecting lots and lots and lots and lots of food and drink porn! Have a fantastic trip, we will be following!

    Safe travels too~

    Great prices! But I'm sure I'll see you another time in Vegas after your break. :)

    Thanks, VC! I'll try to keep up with posting jackpot and good pics!
    Thanks, all mine. I'll look to see if I can guess who your bil and sil are.
    Touche22, yes, credits can be used at any MGM property.
