    Loaded with Covid shots and going to Vegas! It’s been over a year since we were last in Vegas. We did a charter to Laughlin back in November but it’s been too long away from our favorite city. Thanks to all those that have done trip reports throughout this pandemic. I’ve been so jealous, but also grateful to read about others having a good time:)

    Going with my husband, staying at Venetian for 2 nights comped, Cosmo 3 nights comped. We usually only go 3 nights so I hope my bankroll can last the entire stay.

    I had lots of reservations, but due to the weather and easing of restrictions I’ve cancelled a few. Had a day bed at Cosmo but the weather isn’t going to cooperate. If it gets better we will revisit. We don’t like being on a schedule so after the reservation mandate was lifted I cancelled all but three.

    So far -
    Sunday - Lavo brunch
    Tuesday night - Blue Ribbon
    Wed/Thurs - breakfast at The Henry

    I’m guessing we will end up at STK one night and I really want to go to Zuma but it’s not really my husband’s thing. I also tend to get caught up in the gamble and forget to eat until around midnight - so Secret Pizza here I come! Also plan to go downtown one day to check out Circa and may hit Palace Station for bingo and because we’ve never been there. Maybe even some Pan Roast if the line isn’t too long.

    We are leaving Saturday and hitting a couple of local casinos before staying at a hotel close to the airport (CVG). Our nonstop Delta flight is at O’Dark Thirty Sunday morning and will be in Vegas at 8:30am. That’s a first for me. I may be wrecked after the 11:30 Lavo brunch with all you can drink mimosas!

    I hope to do daily updates with pictures, but again - I get caught up in the drink and gamble. I’ll try to do better to payback all those that have kept up these fabulous trip reports for the last year! Any suggestions and advice are welcome!

    I didn’t know we live in the same area! The early morning flights are nice because if you get delayed, you still have all day in Vegas. Your adrenaline will get you through the long first day!

    Have a fun trip - you’ve waited long enough for it!

    Yes I always think about that when I read your trip reports. Although I’m a bit south of you. CVG is not the closest airport to us but the flights and times were better. I’m going to try a variation of your bankroll management techniques, but I don’t have your discipline. LOL.

    It all sounds great. If your husband is willing to try Zuma, you should. Do a skewer, the corn, share the potato. It can be Midwestern friendly. And if he’s starving, you stop at secret pizza on the way out.

    Hopefully the trip before the trip is good to you. I’m gonna look up the Lavo brunch to see if I could squeeze it in for April.

    I love the updates on weekends. Just a nice break from work.

    Finished with work for the week and took my 83 year old mother to the airport to go visit my brother in Texas. First time she’s seen him in almost a year so she’s happy. I don’t like leaving her alone so I’m happy she’ll be having a good time while I’m away.

    I’m all packed and was able to get by with only 4 pairs of shoes! That’s good, right? The weather is a total bitch for my wardrobe as I was planning on packing lighter clothes, but now have to have long sleeves and jackets.

    S has to work a few hours in the morning then we will hit the road - probably to Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg Indiana or Hard Rock in Cincinnati. Maybe I’ll get a nice hit to pad the Vegas bankroll! Will be an early night as we have to be at the airport by 5:30 am.

    I’ll post a pic if I hit anything worth posting - if not, next up the airport on Sunday!

    Hollywood was kinda a bust. Only lost $150 so not too bad though. They had lots of new games and it was much cleaner than the last we were there. I hope these businesses keep up the Covid standards even after this is over.

    At the airport and boarding in 40 minutes or so. Flight looks to be quite full but Delta still not selling the middle seat so that’s nice.

    Have already checked in to Venetian via email. My host put me in for early checkin so I’m hoping our room will be ready before the 11:30 Lavo reservation. Does anybody use the hotel key app? It gave me that option but I didn’t have the app downloaded so I didn’t fool with it. But is sounds pretty handy.

    Next stop- Vegas baby!!

    Mid Feb I kept walking in Venetian hi limit, hit the 25 / spin multiline 7 on Wall. It was ridiculous, of course I was drinking at a clip so not recalling exact name but know it gave me tickets multiple times. I'm digging the Venetian. Ha. Have not stayed there in about 14 yrs. For my May trip I'm putting my daughter and BF in a room there. Any tips you can offer? I wasn't sure if I should book The Venetian or the Palazzo for her? The offer was for 3 nights suite comped and some free play and food credit, they put a name of a post on the offer but I wasn't sure if I should call her or just book it online I'm not sure what the advantage would be of calling her. Enjoy your trip!!!
