    Sitting at the gate at MSP with an hour to kill so thought I would share some thoughts on this trip.

    This will be my first ever “Vegas Conference” and I’m pretty psyched about it. MRS MN cannot join me as she has a very sick aunt she needs to care for. So, I’ll be solo with the exception of one co-worker coming in from Seattle who says he’s going to teach me craps.....I guess we’ll see....I have always wanted to learn, but there’s an intimidation factor.

    The conference is at Flamingo beginning Wednesday AM. I have my room included in the conference there, but I’ll be staying, yes, you guessed it, at Treasure Island. My host was kind enough to put me in an Executive suite paired with $850 in FP.

    On the 8:05 out of MSP on Sun Country this morning and returning on the Friday night red-eye. Apparently, Sun Country has decided they want to follow the Spirit model and will be eliminating first class beginning in October. I’ll be looking for a new airline....probably Delta.

    A couple of things I want to check off:

    EggSlut - I’ve seen photos and read rave reviews so I’m going to get there this trip
    Top Golf - The conference is having a happy hour there on Thursday, so yea!
    Meet more VF’ers! Must catch up with @NickPappageorgio for sure and know there are a few others in town this week. Anyone who wants to meet up, please PM me.

    I’ll be pretty tied up Wed & Thur all day and into the evening so most of my degeneracy will occur all day Tuesday, Wednesday morning and night, Thursday night, and from noon till about 8 PM on Friday. All contingent on the conference keeping me engaged, and, well not 100% sure that’s gonna happen! :rolleyes:

    One thing I know for sure is there will not be much outdoor activity for me. With the temps predicted to be as high as 113, I’ll be enjoying the cool, smoky recycled air of my favorite casinos.

    Gambling Strategy

    $850 FP conversion will be dedicated to $10 denom/ 2 credit Pinball in the TI HL room. All or nothing, but one bonus will pretty much guarantee a solid conversion.
    Otherwise, I’ll hit TI for 4 hours a day, V/P, Mirage, Harrahs and Flamingo. Will try to stop loss at $1,500/day, but have been really fortunate at the local lately, so can stretch that out if needed. With no Mrs MN along to apply spousal tax to my wins and limit my losses, it could get ugly!

    First “L” of the trip - No PreCheck

    Boarding shortly! Adios for now!

    Sorry to hear about Mrs. MN's Aunt, hopefully she makes a full recovery.

    As for your Vegas Trip, may all your drinks be strong, all your wins big and all your conference speakers interesting.

    Good luck!!!!

    Sounds like you will get a decent amount of free time before/after the conference, and Top Golf!
    Keep up that winning streak you've been on... can't wait to see all the pics!

    Enjoy your meet-ups and have an excellent time!!

    I went to an insurance conference in Vegas with my sister about 12 years ago at the Mirage. She registered and we went all the dinners and shows (Bill Cosby, Hall and Oats, Pat Benatar) but she didn’t attend even one meeting. Hope you are a little more conscientious than she was.

    Have a great time! Just missing you by one day. I left some credits in the PB at TI on Sunday night for you. Played my FB and didn't convert! I also loaded up the Diamond Queen in the Palazzo HL for you!

    First time in the luxury suite at TI. Mrs MN doesn’t like to be on any floor higher than 5, so haven’t been able to partake. Must say I am impressed with the size of the room and that it has two bathrooms....not crazy about the decor with lots of gold, but overall nice.

    That suite has a very 90's vibe to it. Looks nice though

    Now go get some wins!

    I get to go to MSP next week for work, not quite as fun as Vegas, LOL.
