    Well, I'm finally home from work and heading to Vegas tomorrow for 9+ days so I figured I'd get this started.

    Staying at Cosmo for 4 nights, Mandarin Oriental for 3, then Wynn for 3. Thinking of this as two gambling trips with a break in between :)

    Lots of plans! Meeting up with folks from message boards, seeing the Las Vegas 51s play some baseball, Tenors of Rock, Love, Trevor Noah ... and possibly more :) Renting a car and intend to go to Red Rocks and Valley of Fire although I've twisted my knee and don't want to reinjure it more. Definitely going to do pool time at all 3 and the spa at MO.

    Lots of reservations (mainly to earn OpenTable points). Planning to go to some places for the first or second time: Zuma, Ellis Island, Veranda weekend brunch, Lago brunch, Michael Mina, Public House and Libertine. Also going to e by jose andres on Saturday night.

    Will have to work some but I think it's going to be manageable. Been enjoying all the SF photos and looking forward to some day drinking :) Didn't get to do that much in February as I worked a lot of the time I was in Vegas.

    Please wish me luck keeping my BR in tact! I'm bringing less per day than my last couple trips, partly due to length and partly due to me wanting to reduce my bet size.

    Seems that you have a nice plan and will enjoy yourself
    Was today at red rock and saw tenors of rock last week( see my tr for a little clip of them) if you never seen raiding the rockvault(hrh) ( and i just guess you love rock) than that would be a good show( best show i have seen last couple of years)
    And you never can be long enough in vegas (already a week here and just 9 full days to go-> time flies when you are having fun)
    Good luck

    Very excited to meet you and @Elf70!

    Thanks Jen. Looks like you had a fun trip too!

    I know! A little worried about the length but I can't wait for the break.

    Thanks! I'm just bummed I won't be able to walk as much in Vegas as I usually do.

    High of 99 Friday and a high of 65 Sunday! Wish I was going to be at MO while it's warm out but I'll still take advantage of the pool. And maybe I'll try for a late checkout Wednesday when it'll be slightly warmer.

    Good luck and tear it up! I've been to a 51's game. Yes, Major League Baseball is a better product but I actually prefer the atmosphere of Minor League games more when attending live.

    I've been once before and sat super close. Zack Wheeler pitched and I still remember how loud the ball sounded when it hit the catcher's mitt.

    I'm a Mets fan so I'm looking forward to seeing some Mets prospects and possibly some of the major league guys on rehab stints.

    Looks like I'll make platinum at Cosmo this trip. Will be nice for the 3x slot points and maybe use the annual resort credit for a mani/pedi!

    How far are you, Dina?

    I suppose I should go to the identity desk before I leave to see how close/far I am from platinum.

    A lot of them
    Hope you have a great and lucky trip. Nine days is a long time but it seems like you have a lot of good activities planned. The longest I've been to Vegas was eight days and I'll never do that again, lost a fortune. Now I have limited myself to four nights to keep the bankroll intact and so I can play the way l like to.

    Thanks! I am a bit worried about the length but bringing my BR in cash and don't have a high withdrawal limit so the damage will be limited :)

    Drink #1 is the bottled Moscow Mule. It's good and spicy from the ginger beer.
