    Hello VFers! This is a solo trip staying downtown which is where I like to be! Flight leaves San Jose Friday night, flying Delta using Skymiles in Comfort+ (free drinks :yum:). I'll be staying at Four Queens for the first time continuing my goal of staying at all the downtown properties...well the big ones with casinos anyhow. In recent years my downtown stays were at El Cortez Tower, El Co Cabana Suites, The Cal, MSS and Fremont.

    I'll be continuing my hunt for my next Royal Flush. The last RF I had in a casino was at Lady Luck and I was staying at the Union Plaza in about 1991 and I was wearing a fanny pack and a mullet. I knew nothing about video poker or VP strategy back then. I'm due right?

    Other then VP, there'll be some slots, maybe some craps, lots of drinks, people watching and a few meals. Saturday night I'll head down to Wynn/Encore to see John Fogerty....Put me in coach! I'm ready to play!

    Tapatalk test with my travel wardrobe. The T-shirt always gets a chuckle in the TSA line, lucky rock and ID bracket. I'll be wearing pants too.

    There ain’t a damn thing wrong with a fanny pack. It’s practical, useful, and efficient.

    Maybe I'll find me a Vegas themed fannypack and make it my own :)

    Mine sure was back in 1991. It carried my $4700 in cash from Lady Luck back to Plaza with me looking over my shoulder every two steps.

    I wore a fanny pack one day in my life and it was stolen. First day on senior trip to Cancun. Fortunately my roommates told me to put important shit in the safe (e.g. passport which had been there on the flight). I also put my wallet in my front pocket. The stuff left in the fanny pack was mostly worthless, thank God. A disposable camera was the most significant loss.

    The next night I passed out in the Women's bathroom at the former "Dady Rocks" after drinking all day and trying Long Island Ice Tea for the first time. The bathrooms only had the sun and moon labeled on them, I picked the sun, sat on the toilet and immediately passed out. Fortunately my female classmates found me after calling for me in the bathroom. The next day I had mild alcohol poisoning. Fun times.

    Sounds like a great decision about keeping the valuables in the safe. Drunk...passed out in the wrong bathroom? That disposable camera could be considered evidence :) and damn! the stories some of these fannypacks could tell.

    I keep hoping that those become cool again because I always have way too much shit in my pockets when I'm in Vegas.

    Good luck @RedChip!

    Totally ok to wear one but put it across your chest. Like a crossbody.

    I would think the Sun is men's rest room and moon is ladys room too. They should at least have pictures on the doors too.

    I parked at a hotel near SJC and took their shuttle. Look what the driver gave me when making change for his tip...
