    Here I sit at Vino Volo in the Austin airport awaiting my 1:20 flight. I had a flight and now I’m enjoying a nice Viognier with a wonderful cheese plate. I’m meeting my niece, who hails from one of the colder states. She will follow me anywhere when we’re in Vegas as long as I promise pool and piña colada time....and Mimosas. So yes, I’m what you’d call the cool aunt. We’ve been doing this for 5 years. She’ll be waiting for me at baggage claim then we’re off to Bally’s until Monday. We’re in a 2Q suite in the Jubilee tower. As soon as we dump our bags, we’re off to PHo to have a drink with our host, then who knows what tonight will bring...hopefully hand pays.

    What we have planned:
    Mon Ami Gabi on the patio for breakfast tomorrow - a must do every trip
    Hell’s Kitchen for dinner Saturday- a first for both of us
    Donny and Marie - I’ve seen them before but it’s part of my offer and I was a huge Donny fan
    so that gives you a rough estimate of my age. If our seats aren’t good, I’ll tip the person
    that seats us for better ones
    Sterling Brunch Sunday another first. I’ve been to BLT many other times but not for brunch. I have a diamond voucher to apply to that
    Cabana at Bally’s- Sunday- I got at killer Groupon for $129, includes 4 drinks and a fruit plate.

    I know we will play some VP at the @Suekel Lobby bar and have mimosas with James. I just realized I forgot my wrist band, but if anyone is around and you see a mousy brown mid 50’s lady and a late 30’s brunette in the HL at Bally’s (or at the Lobby Bar), come say hello.

    This definitely won’t be a live report, I’ll try to update at night or in the a.m,

    Thank you @tringlomane. I’m planning to hit up as many Megabucks machines as I can. I’m 2 to the jackpot twice!

    Go get 'em! It's a crazy weekend in town due to EDC, but that means things will likely be pretty quiet in the evenings as everyone heads to the Speedway. Just look out for the zombie parade around 7-8am...

    Hopefully the show was a good one! And you find some even better slot hits after!

    Mindfreak was actually a pretty good show. We were in the 5th row, I was on the inside aisle. At one point he came out and did some close up magic and he was standing a row in front of me...I could almost touch him! My hubby and I used to watch his TV show years ago so I’ve been a fan for awhile. I actually was in an episode in season 3.

    After the show we went to eat at Nacho Daddy. Ok, I know I’ve teased other Texans about eating Mexican food in Vegas and I offer my sincere apologies! I had the fried avocado street tacos, she had chicken enchiladas. Yum!

    Slots were not kind, I played megabucks at Flamingo, Paris and Bally’s. I had a few nice hits at Paris. Actually I got the most play on the machines at Bally’s and Paris. We also played VP at O’Sheas and I introduced my niece to frozen baileys. They have COMPLETELY redone the high limit slot area at Bally’s and have gotten rid of a bunch of machines. I talked to one of the CW’s and she said they weren’t done yet.

    Hopefully tomorrow will bring better luck.

    I'm glad you are having fun so far.
    I hope the Sterling brunch is good, I'll probably have it sometime this year -- most likely November; and the slots turn around today. :)

    I was not a Donny fan, until I saw him, quite the performer. He gives his all and then some.

    Good luck on you trip, looking forward to your post on Sterling Brunch, I've been wanting to try it. So how does Nacho Daddy compare to Torchy's? I love their Avocado taco (along with all the others). Have fun

    I haven’t been to Torchy’s so I can’t compare. There’s are now 2 of them with in a 15 minute drive from our house so we’ll have to try it. Kerby Lane actually has really good avocado tacos.

    We were at the Bally's high limit in mid April, so don't know how has it changed. Does it still have the WOF machines? We usually like to play the WOF at the HL there. Hope you do better today and win some big hand pay.

    There are some, but the row that was along the one wall is gone and they are scattered around. All the 3 reel machines are gone, some were moved onto the casino floor but others have been totally removed.
