    We gambled more than normal for us today with good results. Finished at PHo.

    Mom & aunt loved The Bronx Wanderers. The usher moved them up, so they had great seats. We saw the show earlier this year and also enjoyed it.

    Day 2 Totals:
    Played on $950 total
    Ended with $1,116
    Up $166

    Good luck to you & The Ron

    Thanks for the compliment! I’m still glad I did it. Much easier too.

    The nachos were very good! $15.95 and couldn’t finish them, even though sharing. Lots of layers of goodies on the chips. Friendly bartenders.

    O.M.G.
    First, the drama of the flight here. Now a big mistake I made for the flight home. I booked this trip months ago and never noticed.

    We are used to taking the nonstop redeye home. It normally leaves anywhere between 10-11:30pm and lands in Cincinnati 5-6:30am because of the time change. The date changes overnight.

    Frontier changed this route to now leave Vegas at 1:15am. Ugh. But we like nonstop, so booked this flight for Saturday night, 12/7.

    Do you see what I did there? 1:15am on 12/7 is Saturday morning, not Saturday night! So the flight is tonight at 1:15am!

    Ron woke me up at 2am this morning, “ummm, you’d better look at this...we got our check-in email”. Sh*t. I can’t believe I did that! I’ve barely slept since. I feel so bad that I cut my mom’s visit with her sister down to 48 hours in Vegas. On a minor note, Ron will miss his group slot pull tomorrow. He had booked that a long time ago.

    I looked at the March trip and I did the same thing. Thankfully I was able to change it without penalty.

    Yes, we could shell out the bucks to stay another day, but we all agree with the strange things that have already happened, we are simply meant to go home.

    At least we can still fit in the Shania show tonight. And my aunt is used to being in Vegas for so trips, so she’ll be fine until her own flight tomorrow.

    Sigh.

    Yes, if it’s not sold out, we could pay change fees, flight differences and seat fees. But we really do feel enough weird things have happened already. It’s meant to be. My mom seems okay with it. Maybe they’ve had enough togetherness!

    But the change fees would be more than the cost of the flight sadly.

    Sorry to hear this @aprilroncincy.

    Edit: Actually probably better to just eat the flight if you wanted to stay. Only $69 each for early Sunday morning. God bless Frontier.

    Ugh, bad news about the flight. I take the same Frontier flights out of CVG and my friend made the same mistake when we were booking our March trip. Luckily he noticed and changed it within the 24 hour window.

    Good luck the rest of the way.

    Shockingly, Frontier doesn't charge a change fee if it's made 60+ days out. But within two weeks it's $119 (ridiculous).

    But if your friend didn't immediately notice it, you're likely in trouble anyway because the next time you probably would look at the flight times is near leaving.

    I have also accidentally booked the wrong departure day once, but I also immediately noticed and I was using Southwest at the time, so fixing it was easy peasy.

    Sorry to hear that the trip has to cut short, good thing that Ron checked email and caught it in time. Hope you both win big today and have a safe and uneventful flight home tonight.

    Had a $4.95 breakfast at PBR Bar at PHo. Coffee was only 99 cents. Great deal and tasted good!

    Terrible luck at Cosmo, but good drinks! Hey, what’s up with the raspberry lemon drop without the fancy glass?
