    The title is not entirely accurate. I actually stayed at V/P once years ago before I knew anything about comps and - gasp - actually paid for a room there for three nights - oh the horrors!

    Anywho, fast forward several years and about a month ago I get in the mail an offer from V/P for $1500FP and a $500 Macy's GC.

    I wasn't certain that I was going to take this offer yet bc I had a trip booked the weekend before at Harrahs Tahoe. That turned out to be a spectacularly great trip on a personal level, tho not so much gambling wise.

    So on the heels of that trip, I accepted the V/P offer as a small token of Sheldon's appreciation for me dumping $8k there in a fit of monkey tilt in July at their BJ tables in about 20 mins.

    I was originally also registered for Cosmo's $75k BJ tourney but bowed out today bc I didn't want the pressure of having to play for that comp. my host said that I didn't have to stay there, but she would appreciate some play.

    What is in store is some minimal play (I know slow and steady has not been good to some of us lately) but with a lot of food porn! Also on the itinerary is a day trip to Red Rock Canyon (not the casino, you degenerates) for a hike and other activities, some of which are TBD at the moment.

    Hope to keep everyone entertained!

    That's a great offer from VP. The weather should be perfect for a hike at Red Rock. Enjoy.

    Hope you take some of Sheldons money. Any dinner reservations yet? Look forward to your feedback on V/P from a non slot players point of view.

    In South Lake Tahoe, there's four large casinos adjacent to each other. There's Mountbleu, The Hard Rock Casino, Harvey's and Harrah's. I've only stayed at Harrah's, which also owns Harvey's. Based on reviews Harvey's is much more dated, although seriously both places have been in a need for refurbishment for at least 15 years. I've played in the other two but know nothing about their rooms.

    The only place that I would even consider is Harrah's. I have pics of the room in my April 2016 TR here:
    http://www.vegasboards.com/threads/harrahs-lake-tahoe-4-14-4-19-live-tr.714/

    The room I got this time was no better or worse; it was a 1BR suite, with a HUGE tub that was perfect for 2 people.

    Good luck this weekend.

    I'm hoping I can fly out but not looking like it. How do we keep missing each other.

    With as many trips as you take, I'd figure we would have meet this year

    Take the V/P down.

    I was there in April of this year but you're right I believe the summer months is when the lake water turns blue.

    Will you be at SB? If yes, where's your viewing party? I should be at CP with others. If you're around we definitely have to meet up for some gamboool and drinks.

    Thanks Paul, I hope to have some quick smash and grabs at V/P although it will be a light playing weekend. Looking forward to meeting up at SB. Where will you be staying?
