    Looking forward to seeing you there soon @NickPappageorgio . Wishing you luck on that hand pay. Personally, I am hoping for multiple hits in the $1000 to $1199 range :)

    Maybe they’ll appreciate my craps action. Lets just hope that Cosmo doesn’t bleed me dry before I get there.

    And @NickPappageorgio I wouldn’t mind seeing some MResort pics if you get a chance. Good luck!

    Hope you can hit this jackpot on a "Friends" machine! If it still exists...lol I played it at Venetian exactly once, but I did win on it!

    Have a great trip!

    Looks like a solid plan! I hope TI treats you well.....I had some really nice luck there in April. Lots of Pinball options in many denominations! There's a couple of the newer variety with $1 denom about mid casino.

    Seafood Shack is totally decent....nothing that sets the world on fire, but good portions and not too pricey. We always eat there at least once a trip. The Mojito bar is pretty cool....won a $2k premium quad there once. Looking forward to your thoughts on the Golden Circle sports bar.

    Five days from now I'll be in Vegas. But today I head to the doctor's office for my semi-annual visit. Be nice to get that out of the way beforehand this time.

    Protip: never schedule your physical after a Vegas trip. Your numbers will be awful.

    Good luck and Happy Anniversary (in advance) to you and your wife. Will be following along. Also interested in pics of M Resort if you take any!

    Everything checked out OK. Green light for Vegas. Spending the rest of the day cleaning house and doing all of that type of fun stuff.

    When I first joined this board, I watched your wedding video. I loved it, so I’m excited you’ll be in Vegas for another anniversary. Win big! Can’t wait to follow along.

    To answer some questions that have popped up:

    1. Yes, we do plan to visit M Resort. Probably on Wednesday instead of Thursday since Mrs. P doesn't want to spend our last full day in Vegas traveling around trying to get places. So, Wednesday is now M Resort/South Point/Silverton/GSR day whilst Thursday will be "hang around Fremont day #2.

    2. I'd never turn down $1100-$1199 hits @Sinnerman on this we are in 100% agreement.

    3. I finally used "whilst" in a TR. (heh)

    4. Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and good luck. Three sleeps left until Vegas.

    I'm spending today in the office and then tomorrow in our newly acquired "North" offices getting an introduction to the new company's software. Then it's a flurry of packing, re-packing, reconfirming reservations etc. until wheels up sometime on Sunday afternoon.

    With the last minute changes to our plans dinner is now sorting out as follows:

    18th - Seafood Shack at TI 7:00
    19th - Cleo at SLS (Sahara) 9:30
    20th - Oscars at The Plaza 7:00 (Anniversary meal)
    21st - Hugo's Cellar at 4 Queens 8:00
    22nd - BBQ Truck and other places downtown (as we're hungry after lunch at Grotto)

    The thing about Vegas is that, before we know it, it will be Friday and this entire trip will be in our rear view mirror. All of the anticipation and lead up and "bang" it's over just like that. Time has a funny way of skewing itself. This last week has seemed endless, next week will be a blur.

    Why can't it just be Sunday already?

    Have a great trip! Will you be using UbEr for your visits to the off strip places?

    Hope you have big wins and great times.

    Yes, either Uber or Lyft depending on which app has the best rates for the trips in question.

    Yup, that's why we have it scheduled this trip.

    One last time to say goodbye to a really good restaurant.
