    Time for our "Birthday" trip to Vegas. We're staying at Tuscany this time and plan to make this more of a locals casino trip, which Mrs. P and I haven't done in a while. We fly out of IAH Monday afternoon on United First Class. we are booked through Friday.

    Plans:

    Monday (evening): Drink, Eat, Gamble
    Tuesday: We have tickets to the UNLV hockey game in the evening which is in the arena right next door to Red Rocks, so we plan to watch the game and then visit RR for our first time. During the day we're going to hang around Fremont. We thought about the Golden Knights/Blackhawks game but the ticket prices for that one are higher than I want to pay. Plus, we're coming back in February and they play Montreal then so we'll hit that up. I really want to see the UNLV club team and Red Rocks so this works out.
    Wednesday: Tickets to Circus 1903, this will be our one Strip day.
    Thursday: South side. M Resort, Silverton, and South Point where we plan to watch the football game and (hopefully) share a Johnny Walker Black with Brent Musberger.
    Friday (morning): Lunch, gamble and go home.

    Food: For our anniversary trip we dined out every night. This trip we haven't made any reservations so it will probably be a LOT more casual and random. Probably a lot of "grab and go" type of meals. Possibly some fast casual.

    Drinks: Yes. We are bringing a portable breathalyzer along which should be interesting. If I can remember to use the damn thing.

    Gamble: The usual, a lot of VP, some slots, and probably some table games.

    Today is college football at home and tomorrow is Vegas movie day. We still have Hangover, Think like a Man Too and Last Vegas to watch before we leave.

    I'll try to be as live as my phone charge allows.

    And all packaged up and ready to go. We use the envelope system and It's worked well for us since we started it.

    Woo hoo! The pre-trip planning is starting the fun! Good luck to the both of you, Nick and happy birthday!!

    I will be at Cosmo for my last night, the same day you are getting to town... IF by any chance you feel like stopping by Monday evening or Tuesday early, I would love to say hello in person!

    We'll certainly be at Cosmo on Wednesday. Yes, it's dragging. I'm ready to get on the plane yesterday.

    You never know. Mrs. P is NEVER one to say no to Cosmo. Plus, I might need your VP luck to rub off on me.

    Thanks. And good luck to you on your trip as well.

    I have two mobile chargers. My initial problem is being sober enough to remember to take them with us.

    Here’s to a great birthday trip! I think you’ll be on VP fire this trip! I’m interested to hear how you like spending most of your time off strip.

    Surely Mr. Pappageorgio contacted his host at the Mirage for his typical Lanai Villa? Regardless, have a great trip.
