    Hello everyone! After what seems like forever waiting, my next Vegas trip is finally almost here! This is my 3rd trip to Vegas in my 22 year old life, but only my second live trip report. I love all gambling, so I'll most likely do a bit of everything. BJ, Craps, Poker, Slots, VP, and Sigma Derby . I am not afraid to bet big with the casino's money.

    WHO:
    Me-(OVOjake) Low roller who will someday soon be a high roller. Ring leader of this trip

    My Dad- Will be my first trip out to Vegas with him. Not sure what to expect with him gambling wise, but he likes to party and golf, so it should be a blast.

    My future father in law-(from this point on known as FIL) My second trip with him. My trip report last year involved him. It was a solo trip him and I celebrating his 50th birthday Now we are back for his 51st this weekend. Golf enthusiast and total cooler when it comes to gambling, but hopefully that will change this trip!

    What: We have kind of taken the stance of doing what we feel like when we get there. We are definitely golfing. The weather looks great. Most likely 2 rounds. Couldn't afford it last year, this year we are ready to go. We might go to the UFC fight, depending on how tickets look on stubhub this weekend. Going to hit up Hakkasan for Tiesto on Saturday. Definitely in-n-out burger and The Pantry in The Mirage (best pancakes ever. Either that or I was really really hung over last time and that enhanced them. Not sure it matters )

    When: March 3-7. Flying Southwest out of PDX

    Where: Staying using my comps. Friday @The Mirage, Saturday & Sunday @The Cosmopolitan, than back to The Mirage on Monday night. Not happy about having to move so many times, but that's what I get for being a low roller. A comp is a comp

    Why: FIL's birthday is Sunday. But overall the plan is to make large cash withdrawals from the casinos, keep up with the dads, and make some great memories.

    Join us!

    We are thinking somewhere along the lines of TPC Las Vegas, Royal Links, Painted Desert, or Spanish Trail CC. We are also going to hit the Taylormade Par 3. Even if it sucks, we want to experience night golf. I wish we had an in or the means to play out at Shadow Creek, but that just isn't an option price wise for us

    Good luck! I remember that trip report (the Manfriend's folks are big Vegas folks too, so we have been there with them on a few of our trips and so your report reminded me of that) from last year - glad to know it's quickly becoming an annual event! Best of luck.

    Good luck! I take my FIL every now and then, but the family is tightening the reigns on that...lol...he is a bigger degen than me...maybe not bet-wise, but definitely time-wise.

    Good luck to you guys! I never did get to try The Pantry this past stay at Mirage, but the lines were super long for breakfast. I figured it was either a great breakfast or conveniently stumbling distance from elevators for coffee! Have a blast!
