    Me: “I can survive 8 weeks between Vegas trips (March to May) – no problem. There’s really no reason for me to head there in April.”

    Also me: “Let me find any excuse possible to book an April trip!”

    So here I am, folks: now officially heading out this Wednesday because of the following excuses:
    1. Work has been an absolute nightmare lately (so of course I feel like I deserve it, duh)
    2. Cosmo is running their slot kiosk promotion (as if I’m being deprived of slot promos...I took advantage of their scratch-off promo in January and have their slot tourney next month. Whoops?)
    3. It’s comped. “Might as well” *insert eye-roll here*
    4. Southwest Airlines sent me a promo for A-List...book and fly six one-ways from February 20 – May 31 and keep the promotional A-List they gave me in February for the rest of the year. But wait! A typical PHX-LAS roundtrip would leave me with just 5/6 qualifying flights...so what am I doing? On the return, flying one-way from LAS to LAX...then booked a separate one-way from LAX-PHX 1.5 hours after the first leg. Brilliant or psycho? Either way, this was a big factor/excuse for booking the trip. And that change in return ended up only being a $30 delta (upper) to my original flight plan. I’ll call that the first win of the trip!

    At Cosmo all three nights. I’ll actually be down south in Tucson for business – planning to drop my company rental car off at TUS and fly into Vegas for a hopeful 6:20pm arrival.

    Plans to include the usual: gambol, eating, drinking, repeat! Let’s set a preliminary O/U for the following events at... 9.5? (Edited from 8.5 due to two new additions)


    – Zuma
    – Beauty & Essex
    – Bardot
    – Carbone
    – Block 16
    – Secret Pizza
    – Mr. Chow Happy Hour
    – Clique to-go
    – Meet up with some VF’ers
    – VP $5 denom handpay
    – VP $1 Royal and/or premium quad handpay
    – Hit that $100k+ progressive 5-play $0.25 denom dealt Royal at Cosmo
    – Slot handpay
    – Nab my first chocolate chip (starting with no more than $1k at a table)
    – Play the $100 WOF in HL
    – Finish with at least 80% of bankroll to roll over to my May trip
    Added in edit:
    – Barbershop at Cosmo for cocktail(s)
    – Relaxation day at Qua

    Four more sleeps!

    Good luck GlenCoco, hope you accomplish all your goals and have fun doing it. I'll be there tomorrow but be home before you get there. Hope you get your $1 royal and premium quad.

    Great justifications! And you were close enough to 2 months between, it counts!

    Good luck, especially with hitting the Cosmo VP progressive!

    I like your ambition.

    Block 16 is excellent. My favorite place there is probably Lardo, but it's all pretty good (though I would take Zuma over that sushi place they have). Ghost Donkey is pretty cool, too -- reminds me of a lot of small New York places.

    Those "excuses" for a Vegas trip are absolutely justified!!! I mean, you gotta keep those "A" list privileges, right?? What kinda silly person wouldn't??!?

    I look forward to seeing lots and lots of pics... specifically food and wins, and wins and food. Oh, and drinks, lest @IrishDave feels left out.

    Hope to see you check off those gambling goals like this: BAM! got it... BAM! got that one too... hey look guys, got THAT one too!!!

    Have a fun and lucky trip, GlenCoco!!

    Bahaha, thank you all so much for the great energy and support!! Three more sleeps – I’m so ready. Time to start my finger warm-ups, I suppose... :tearsofjoy:

    Oh and @44inarow i totally agree about Block 16. I may or may not have ate Lardo four different times during my March trip :sweatsmile: also a fan of Hattie B’s but it’s always so much damn food. Gonna try to hit up Pok Pok this time (and definitely Lardo again). Wasn’t terribly impressed with the sushi place the one time I tried it in September. And Ghost Donkey is the reason I woke up on my departure day during my October trip and had to book a later flight that evening, hahah.

    I should add to my list of goals that I’m going to try to stop into the Barbershop. So bummed they took away the Bond video poker machines...and Bond in general....

    So happy to see you're doing a TR this trip B ! I'm going through some serious Vegas withdrawls, watching vlogs and lurking TR's like crazy.
    Impressive trip bucket list btw....what is Clique to-go? I still laugh at my virgin Clique experience, it was quite the night!
    The terrace is still about 5 months away for us...so be a pal and post lots of pics!!! Have a blast xx

    Sorry that I couldn't keep up with your TR, I was busy with gambling myself. Wishing you a hand pay at a $5 machine

    Don't justify.....do, or do not. There IS no justify.

    Oh @IrishDave I try! Seems like last week we were all at Chandelier together!

    And thanks for the well wishes, C! I hope I’m able to help you get through to your next Vegas trip with this TR. HAHAHA THE MESSAGES I GOT WHEN YOU WERE AT CLIQUE. I remember waking up and laughing for so long just visualizing everything.

    I’ll certainly do my best with all of the above but I definitely don’t doubt the fun or food will suck :p thanks for following along!
