    Found out awhile ago from a little bird (he texted me) that Tring and his g/f would be in Vegas for close to a week. We have been trying to figure out when we can get together for some beers so let’s go!!!

    Staying at Sam’s Town comped (no Resort fee) in a Park View King on Saturday and at Excalibur comped (+ Resort fee) on Sunday. I originally was only going to stay Sunday but I don’t coach a game on Saturday so I tried to add Saturday to EX and it was something ridiculous like ~$150. Nope!

    Plan is to hit the road at about 5:30am to be able to get to town in time to watch the second half of the OSU vs UC game.

    Will be bringing some beer from San Diego for Tring to sample on Sunday.

    Other plans include the usual

    Video Poker
    Beer
    Food
    Beer
    Video Poker
    Beer
    Bet a horse or two
    Beer
    Repeat

    Only thing we really have planned is to go out to M Resort for NFL football on Sunday. That is tentative right now while we figure out transportation.

    Beer then liquor - never sicker...

    Beer than food - will kill the mood

    Well @tringlomane didn’t bring me any luck OR any beer at Harrah’s Joliet this past Thursday, so maybe he’s saving it all for you!

    Come hell or high water I will be there. If we get to M Resort is still up in the air but I’m sure it will work out.

    I don't bring Stella.

    I should have asked you to bring one of those mystery 6 packs though. Those are fun, and pretty damn good for 4 bucks!
