My last attempt at a live TR tilted much like all my gambol, I thought I would try a recap of my recent visit. It was my brother's birthday last week, he had business in Laughlin the first part of the week. His boss is a gambler so his wife flew in for the weekend and although brother is not a gambler his boss convinced him to spend stay two extra nights before heading home to Austin. I was already booked to for trip the last week of November so I changed it up to be there at the same time. Flight wasn't till late afternoon on 13th,in true workaholic fashion I went to the office on Tuesday and found my self rushing to get to the airport to catch my flight. Not sure how I scored a front row seat with an empty middle seat with a A45 boarding position, bonus. I brought a tin of cookies for the flight crew and handed it to the attendant as I boarded the plane. I read Flight attendant enjoy such gestures and for once remembered to pick something up. Best move ever, I was well lubricated by the time I reached Sin City. For solo travelers like myself, I feel the best method to get to the strip is Bell's "Share a Limo". Available online at least 24 hrs in advance of arrival for $30 round trip to strip hotels. Most rides are in a town car or Escalade, I've snagged a limo about 25% of the time. They always offer to make stops on the way for provisions if needed , very quick and usually in between the cost of a taxi and Uber. Check in at VIP desk was a breeze, standard Flamingo room, besides great view of the fountain at Bellagio , nothing to speak of. Dropped of luggage and of to Cromwell I go. Last bit of food I had was 12 hours earlier at breakfast and the numerous in-flight beverages dictated I acquire substance before consuming more beverage. A sandwich at Eatwell in the Cromwell hit the spot. Time to Gambol...….
