    Hi All,

    Been an avid reader on the board and a huge fan of all your trip reports for a while so thought I’d give a little back and have a bash myself!

    Me and the current Mrs W are travelling from the UK to Vegas via LA and will be in town 24/5 to 31/5. We head over twice a year and this trip we are comped at Mandalay Bay 4 nights in a Resort King Strip View and have booked a Fountain View Studio at Cosmo for 3 nights.

    Plans for the trip are ;-

    Shows

    - David Copperfield
    - Matt Goss (we watched the Bros documentary and just have to go on the back of that - favourite quote from Matt Goss “I made a conscious decision because of Stevie Wonder not to be superstitious.”
    - Neon Museum - Brilliant

    The Gambol Action
    - video poker
    - lots of Buffalo - kind of got addicted last trip in Jan
    - roulette - as I promised my old dear to put $20 on 22 for her!
    - acquire the 76179 more points I need to get to MLife Platinum - sounds expensive!
    - Tier match to Diamond at caesars

    Eats
    - dinners booked at at Lago/Kumi and Javiers
    - We want to try and get to Dirtdog/Hussongs Cantina/Pizza Rock
    - Peppermill (always a must!) and MAG for brekkie
    - Manage to make it past the mahussive queue and try Eggslut

    Pool
    - booked a Cabana at MGM on 29/5 - Love floating about in a drunken use on that lazy river!

    Bankroll porn and shoe porn posts to follow

    Cheers!

    While you are doing that, corner 23. Husband's birthday is 22nd, son's is 23rd. :)

    Since Eggslut is a popular whore, consider dropping by The Henry for SREB or heading to the back of Cosmo and checking out the Breakfast Panini at Va Bene. Both excellent choices with much shorter lines.

    Good luck!

    You'll like Matt Goss. Not only is he a great show, but 1OAK is excellent as a jazz lounge/club (much better use of the space than as an actual nightclub, in my opinion). I've seen Postmodern Jukebox there a couple times now and it's a fantastic experience.

    Good luck and safe travels! I recently posted my very first trip report also. It's a fun way to document your trip. I'm guessing you, like Matt Goss, are not "superstitious", given the amount of $50 dollar bills you have in your bankroll. LOL. Something about Bugsy Siegel, I think. You can Google it. Looking forward to following along with your trip report.

    Haha! Fortunately just like Matt Goss I’m not superstitious or a believer in bad luck. Just to be on the safe side the current Mrs W made me relinquish all my mob connections some time ago! The only issue I’ve got with 50’s is the lack of them you get to the £ as the exchange rate at the moment is pants...

    Sounds like a great plan. Looking forward to hearing about it. I wanted to try Peppermill on my last trip, but my brother looked at it online and said it “ looked like an old Pizza Hut.” I’ll leave him next time!

    Have a safe and pleasant trip to Vegas. Hope you get a lot of big wins and be able to get platinum with M-Life. Will follow along. You will get $100 diamond celebration with Diamond match, so I assume you will have a nice dinner at one of the Caesars owned restaurant. Enjoy!

    This already has all the right beginnings for an epic trip report, heavy shoe porn and heavy bank roll! Look forward to following

    Good luck to you. Since you've decided to do a trip report we here at the TR Standards Committee would like to inform you of a few guidelines that we enforce to ensure the appropriate quality minimums are adhered to.....

    1. Pictures, your TR MUST have lots of pictures of wins, Vegas things, food, shoes (you already have that covered I see, good start), money (also covered), chips, silliness and you and the Missus generally having a good time.

    2. Words: Optional. Pictures are better. Especially if you're late night gambledrinking and get all fumble fingered. (trust me, I'm an authority on this one)

    3. @IrishDave You MUST, at some point, make it a point to inform him of your shoe porn. Trust us, he LOVES it.*

    4. @tringlomane At some point you have to ask him a VP odds question. Make it obscure and complicated. If you don't do this we fear that he might actually implode one of these days.

    5. Minimum Standards of Decency. - Yeah right, whatever.

    6. It is suggested, although not required, that if you're taking a pool day one picture should be taken showing your feet and legs, below the knee, and a drink that you are currently enjoying. I don't know when this became a thing but trust us, it is.*

    7. If, should you start having too much fun and toss the plot on this TR during your trip, apologies are NOT needed. Continue Vegasing, we understand.

    8. At some point you MUST play a slot machine, only pressing the spin button with your right hand whilst signing the word "Jackpot" with your left hand while your legs are crossed left over right and your Missus is standing behind you drinking a Bellini, holding the camera and taking shots of the back of your head.*



    Other than that? It's ALL up to you. Good luck and good fun wished for you!!


























    *OK To be perfectly honest I wouldn't do #3, #6 or #8. But if you do this TR will be a whole lot funnier.

    Haha - that’s a lot to live up to Nick! I’ll do my best mate. Planning to throw in some drunken shenanigans to rival @Gaggles plus some truly unwise bets.....with the Mrs so likely won’t get propositioned by any late night ladies looking for company....but you never know fella....
