    I've been making Vegas Thanksgiving my new thing, after doing Atlantic City for several years. Vegas is better!
    Here is my tale as I finished the few points to earn CET Platinum status. (Which gets you not much, but I like a challenge!)

    So I left work and headed to Baltimore. Hit some crazy traffic north of Baltimore and then Siri said she could save me 10 minutes with an alternate route. Right through downtown during rush hour. Yeah, that didn't pan out!

    Luckily between Siri and my Subaru navi, we made it back on I95. Finally arrived at the Springhill Suites I scored for $47 on Priceline. It was just renovated, I liked it.

    All aboard!

    The Wifi worked till we took off and the it died. They reset the connection and it still didn't work. I will be requesting a refund on that. Luckily Live TV still worked, Lets Make a Deal anyone? But why would the WiFi work? Considering my track record lately haha

    I got to watch Lets Make a Deal and Price is Right, killed two hours!

    The bird is down.
    To the empty taxi line and went and was in a cab in no time on the way to the Venetian, my first two nights abode.

    "First time to Vegas?" said the taxi driver.
    "Nope, been here many times"
    "Oh ok"
    "You in a hurry?"
    "No, stay off the highway please."
    "No Highway"

    He really tried hard to get my permission to long haul me.
    "You wanna stop at a liquor store?"
    "No I'm good"
    "Hey man liquor prices are really expensive on the strip you know"
    "Yes I know, to the Venetian please"

    Silence for the rest of the ride. Gave him $23 and I have arrived!
    Now I got the Venetian for $85 a night on Priceline, so I expected to be put where they put the Priceline peasants.
    She was all friendly and stuff, attempted to upsell me to a view room, but I've seen the strip enough. After you've stayed at the Cosmo, you can't beat it. The guy beside her was trying to scare the old lady telling her she could be looking at a dumpster and what not. And it was a $45 night upsell, hell naw! Gimme my room thanks.

    Diana scored Improv tickets at Harrah's, so I went with her son Matt. The Menopause crowd was just exiting as we got there. Played a bit at Harrah's, didn't do too much.

    Yeah we passed..haha The show was good, about an hour long with the decent comedians. About what I've seen at the Borgata comedian club in AC. We were back to Venetian around 10pm. I think I played a 20 in Buffalo and decided to call it a night.

    I'm in the elevator lobby, bout 10pm, and there it was. The older semi fat guy with a looker in hooker boots rubbing him down. I had the opportunity to get in the elevator with them, but left them have their own car. HHH

    It didn't take me long until I was clonked out. Them Venetian beds are hella comfortable!

    Set my alarm for 5am. This guy has to be to Planet Hollywood by 6am for the start of the gaming day.

    The alarm was buzzing at 4:45am, I slept to my alarm, in Vegas! That doesn't happen the 1st day usually. I had the black out shades down, so it was total peace in there. Aww love those beds. Threw on some clothes and made myself look respectable and off I went down Las Vegas BLVD towards Planet Hollywood where I would be taking on the challenge of 1,000 Tier Points in a 24 hour period. The gaming day starts at 6am.

    BUT I did it in the allotted money, couldn't believe it! I cashed it out, went to the TR desk to confirm I did the 1,000 points. She gave me a high five and told me to come back tomorrow as the bonus should post overnight and I could get my Platinum cards. MISSION COMPLETED!

    Out of money, but the day is still young! On my way back I finally caved and entered Casino Royale for their player payback promotion. You have to wait in the front desk line, which is also the players club, but finally a woman with an iPad came around and get me my card. Lose $20, they give you $20. Alright I'm game. And they have a big Wheel of Fortune!

    Lost my $20. Got the $20 free play.

    Then that happened..

    Good Morning Venetian!
    Slept until my alarm again, did I mention how much I loved that bed and room?

    I had a hunger going on and have always wanted to dine at Mon Ami Gabi at Paris. Perfect morning to do so! But do I want to walk? No I'm taking a cab.

    Before heading back to Venetian to check out, I wanted to stop at TI to play their Buffalo as I usually have luck on them. So I huffed it back down there. Ended up taking the Wynn crossover to fashion show mall and over that way. It was chilly, I had my hood up! Ears we cold

    I walked it down to Cromwell where I would be staying for the last night. Easy walk. Not many in the casino and nobody at the front desk.

    "Why yes sir, we do have a room available."
    "Here are your keys, a wine reception will be held for guests at 5pm-6pm, hope you can join us"
    "I'll try!"

    It was only like 10pm, but I decided to call it a night. The Cromwell beds were very very comfortable as well. I was hoping to be asleep before Drai's started up and indeed I was. I slept through the night and the sound wasn't near as bad as you would expect. I woke up at 4:30am before my 5am alarm. I kept the little window in the bathroom open and you can hear some interesting conversations from down below. For a much alcohol as I consumed, I felt great!

    Cabbed it to the airport with plenty of time. TSA actually took about 30 minutes, they weren't moving that fast at all. Didn't get precheck again, so I got the full treatment.

    Between that and VP, I donated $40. Ok time to sit patiently, it's cheaper.

    Completely full flight home. Had a nice couple sit next to me. The woman was older, might have just been friends though. Close to landing he asked me "are you a blogger? You've been your phone the whole flight!" "Yeah something like that!"
