    My wait is almost over. I'm not sure about the rest of you, but for me for about a month before my trip I'm completely consumed by everything Vegas. I spend most of my evenings looking up bars, restaurant menus and anything else I can think of.

    I plan on doing my absolute best to bring those of you that can't be in Vegas along for the ride.

    Here are my plans:

    We get into Vegas around noon on Friday. We are staying at Cosmo on a comp and are set to have them pick us up at the airport. This is our first time staying at Cosmo. I have always been a Mlife guy and have always gotten good offers from them. But I wanted to give Cosmo a try mainly because of all the high recommendations on here.

    My wife and I are big Parrotheads and so we will be going to the Jimmy Buffett concert on sat night and we have tickets to the ACM awards on Sunday night. I know the Buffett concert will be a blast just not sure about the awards show. Never been to one before.

    We don't have any hard set plans on where we want to eat. We usually eat at one or two nice places a trip. Our favorite has always been Delmonico's.
    It might be fun to try someplace new. What's this veal park thing everyone always raves about?

    I love me some gambling and will be doing plenty of it between events. My gambling budget this trip will be $5,250 or $1,750 a day. I mainly play slots and roulette. I'm not sure if I'm going to do D's Tito system or just do what I always do, start each day with the same amount any left over goes to make the next days starting amount that much bigger. We will see.

    Anyways, I'm very excited for this weekend to get here. If there are any other Vegas Fanatics in town let me know. I'm always down for a few cocktails and some gambling. Any plans on a group pull this weekend?

    Ok so who do you guys like for the final four. I'm not much of a sports bettor but you got to throw some cheddar at the final four. Any ideas of parlays are accepted. I'm not even sure what the spreads are at this time.

    Here are the current odds for the FF: (Average, individual books may vary)

    Gonzaga (-6.5) vs. SCar
    UNC (-4.5) vs. Oregon

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Right now I'm torn on both games. I've been underestimating both SCar and Oregon all tournament long. That said, I like both Gonzaga and UNC a lot so......good luck.

    There's a Sigma Derby upstairs at the D, and I think there's one in the Level Up lounge at MGM Grand. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    You get to this late in the tournament and you've already thrown everything out the window, including your bracket. I'm sure these games will be close, so I'm not even gonna guess anymore until next year, haha.

    And you'll probably have more fun putting that money towards Sigma Derby anyway

    Do the veal parm! The two most famous places for it on strip are Sinatra at Wynn and Carbone at Aria. Carbone I think gets the edge just based on other dishes and the ambiance. Plus, it's at Aria so close to you at Cosmo.

    There should still be reservations available for this weekend if you look on OpenTable! I will be dining there Saturday night and cannot wait.

    Tonight the packing begins. Usually wait until last minute. But, maybe if I pack early it will make the next couple days go faster.

    Sounds like your ready for a great Vegas trip. My middle son and his wife are big Parrotheads as well and have been to several of Buffett's concerts. I think you will enjoy the ACM awards show...with Carrie Underwood performing what's not to like. Hoping your weekend doesn't fly by and is filled with good luck.

    Go to Carbone. Here is your order for 2 people. Caesar salad, spicy rigatoni and veal parm (just 1 of each, big portions). Enjoy!!!

    Have a great trip!

    I've never had veal. What does it taste like?
