    This trip report will have no political stance. I was just trying to come up with a catchy title and that's the best I could do. I thought about "Vegas hide your virgins, daddy's home live TR". And although that made me chuckle, it just sounded so creepy.
    I had originally planned on staying at Cosmo, but with a resent email I received and talking to a host at the Mirage I decided I just couldn't pass up the offer the mirage made us. I was able to get limo to and from the airport, VIP check in, a mirage suite, $150 in resort credit and $125 in free play. I also could have gotten Jimmy Buffett tickets, but since I already had some I told him to keep them and I'll take the comp in something else. I know the Mirage doesn't come close to comparing to the Cosmo but I'm sure we will still have a blast.

    My goals and plans for this trip our:
    1. I want and deserve my first hand pay! Have had many wins just under but never broke the hand pay threshold. (If the handpay gods our reading this I would really appreciate a hand pay worth paying the taxes on. Hopefully not a $1205 handpay, please)

    2. Jimmy buffet pool party and concert on Saturday. If you have never been to the pool party it is an absolute blast.
    I just had my new jacket made for the party

    3. Wife wanted to go to Boys to Men, so that's the plan on Sunday night. I wasn't too excited that she chose this but if it makes her happy then I'll be happy!

    4. Take a turn on the Highroller, thirty minutes of crazy fun, Or not. I'm thinking it will be fun for about ten minutes than I will be antsy to get back to a casino.

    5. To have a blast with my beautiful wife and just forget about real life for a weekend.

    Tapatalk is not letting me post pictures so I'm hoping I can figure this out before my trip.

    My g/f went to Boyz II Men a few years ago (while I played poker...haha). She said it was one of the best shows she's been to!

    Have a good time!

    Is it just me or does the few days before a trip take forever?

    Haha, it is an awful wait in the last bit of the countdown!!

    Good luck hunting down that first hand pay! They often seem to cluster so hope you can make up for lost time too!

    Safe travels, and looking forward to the updates!

    Hope your quest for a hand pay works out for you. Nice offer from the Mirage, I've stayed there in the past and always enjoyed it when I did. Hope you do as well, good luck!

    Ok all packed. Now just need to make it through one more day of work.

    I think I've watched every slot, craps and roulette video on YouTube while waiting for this weekend.

    Anyone have any suggestions on a golf course I could go play some what close to the strip, that won't cost an arm and a leg. I have normally golfed at wynn and Bali hai but hoping to be around a hundred bucks with club rental if possible.

    No idea on courses- sorry- but I know topgolf opened in vegas not too long ago and people seem to have fun there- have you checked that out? I know it's not the same as doing a course, but could be fun!

    Las Vegas National maybe? Used to be in much better shape. Tiger won his first pga tourney there I believe. I think the main reason I enjoyed it was because they filmed some of the movie "casino" there. I played Rio Secco in Henderson in August. Pretty nice and great views of the strip. If you have any status with CET you'll be able to get a discount. About 20 mins from the strip at least.

    I was thinking that one. I had heard years ago that it was in pretty rough shape? It may be much better now.
    It's now 1:24 am. And I can't sleep. I'm too excited to sleep. Keep watching YouTube videos from g2e.
