    So, hopefully I can make this mildly entertaining.
    Going for the International Roofing Expo so will be busy with that most days. Evenings will be spent enjoying meals, video poker and live poker. My games of choice are PLO and LHE, so Bellagio and Aria will be my rooms of choice.
    Staying in a standard room at Aria.

    2/28: arrive around 6. I plan on getting checked in and then head for my free shake shack before it expires tomorrow.
    Will wind the night down with some video poker.

    3/1: Ash Wednesday. After a morning workout I plan on heading to some seminars.
    I will need to catch 1230 mass as I have a dinner reservation.
    The afternoon will be spent at Bellagio playing some 40/80 LHE most likely.
    6pm dinner at Kabuto, a must every time I make it to town.

    3/2: More seminars and walking the expo floor. The goal is to try Carbonne for the first time. Also wouldn't mind doing some shopping for the wife and kids.
    I'm also in the market for a new watch pending my success and the tables.

    3/3: last day of seminars and expo. I fly out at 630 so lots of time for play.
    No meat Friday so I will be on the lookout for some food fish and chips if anyone has any suggestions.

    A lot of them
    Great fish at Milo's in the Cosmopolitan and they have very affordable lunch specials there...my favorite is the lobster pasta. Good luck!

    That may be the place then. Want to get some VP play in there in hopes of a June offer.

    Thanks

    Looking forward to this TR...I haven't played a solid session of live poker in a long time! Let's see some 40/80 chip porn! My last Vegas poker games were the 20/40 LHE at Bellagio and the 15/30 O/8 game at Venetian...years and years ago! I've since lost the patience to play live poker.

    Yeah.
    That is why PLO is my new drug of choice.
    Can play lots of hands.

    Lyft Premier in a Hyundai, hmmm.
    Edit: spoke too soon. The Genesis is a nice ride.


    Senior citizens standing next to me using ride share for the first time. Amazed by the whole idea

    Opinions of Bruxie?

    Anywhere good to eat at Mandalay? That is where my conference is.

    Good thing the shake shack was free if they messed it up! Consider that the bad luck out of the way, all good luck from now on! Have fun and win big!

    Enjoyed first experience playing both DSTP and TDB.
    Had a decent number of non premium quads, but no big hits. Initial buy in gave me some good play.
    Early night so I can get to the gym before expo registration.
    Hope to provide more interest content tomorrow.

    Try machine #351092 inside of Spin; it gave me some great hits over the weekend, but I dumped them all back in, so that must mean it's due again! Good luck!

    I think this is going to be a great trip for you. I will be following along. Loved the pictures of the peaks.

    "Quick" two miles on the treadmill and some body weight exerciSe. Aria gym is decent for what it is. Wish I could find a strip gym with barbells though.

    Now for some caffeine.
