    Heading out to Vegas for a Cosmo Double Slot Tournament on May 13th.

    I love horror movies, so really enjoying the date! Hoping it bring me more luck than April Fool’s, where I pretty much ended up the fool. I will likely try to play any “horror” related slots I can find that day, just because : )

    Who:
    · Me of course
    · S – wife of a former coworker, totally laid back friend who is cool with us splitting up or hanging together. No relation to PT’s “S”
    · Anyone else from the boards who wants to say hi, have a drink, meal, or meet up!

    Where:
    · Cosmopolitan – sharing a Terrace Suite w/ S.
    · Planet Hollywood – Unoccupied comped room, king of some variety

    When:
    · S arrives on Thursday evening, staying with relative and will meet me on strip Friday morning
    · S departs early Sunday morning
    · I arrive Friday at 6:30 AM – have room for Thursday night so I can check in right away.
    · I depart Sunday afternoon

    What:
    · Cosmo slot tournament
    o Register on Friday afternoon
    o Friday Tournament
    o Saturday Tournament (then prizes and drawing)
    · Drinking, lots of drinking
    · Pool – eh, maybe, but so little time

    Drinks:
    · Verbena? – can you believe I still haven’t had one!
    · Lychee Martini hopefully
    · Shake from Holsteins, haven’t done that yet either
    · Dirty Shirley, with cherries of course

    Food:
    · Beauty and Essex – heard it was opening Saturday, but can I get in, and do I want to…?
    · Jaleo or Rose Rabbit Lie
    · Henry (no SREB for me, I like the california omelet, with avocado on top, and the fruit platter!)
    · Don’t know what else, depends on S’s budget for food : )

    Bankroll:
    · Strict $1500 due to last month’s fiasco, must redeem myself to husband
    · FP from Cosmo (I think it’s 100-200 w/ tournament, usually around 600ish)
    · FP from PHO - $375

    Games:
    · Slots – lots of slots – 1c to $1
    · High Limit Slot – probably less due to budget constraints and being with S (highly subject to change)
    · Craps – maybe, I need to read up and practice, last time I was a virgin, we’ll see how S feels
    · May dabble in carny games, but usually don’t, if S wants to, I’ll blow a few bucks here and there

    Disclaimer:
    I plan to have fun, and share as much as I can. These short trips are harder to update as Vegas time is extremely precious on an effectively 2 day trip, so while I intend for it to be live, I need to balance that with my reunion with S and the brevity of the trip. I will respond to everyone if I can, and if I don’t, please know that it is due to time savings. I will definitely be reading and appreciate interaction! When I go in June for a 10-day trip, the posts/responses will be easier. Also, I am posting this on my favorite TWO boards. I know this has been a debate at times, but it’s what makes sense for me. I have “friends” in both places, and because I’m used to doing Live TRs, it isn’t too much extra for me. All I do is duplicate my main post and insert pictures, it really only takes a few more seconds. A few things are unique due to conversations that come up. I may also post more “less relevant” things in whichever thread has more interaction.

    Some pictures to get this thing kicked off
    My “custom-made” book purse, Stephen King book = Horror = Perfect for Friday the 13th?

    Some of the carny games I won’t likely be playing?

    How I do NOT want my wallet to look at end of trip

    How I DO want my wallet to look at end of trip!

    Let me know if you are also in town, and don’t hesitate to PM me! I may not be able to meet up due to tournament and S, but if it works out, I’d be happy to!

    Dirty, the organization of your post is damn impressive. You have it nailed - the who, what, where etc etc....

    As for the "must redeem myself to husband". I find that time heals all wounds. Suggestion, don't chase, let it come to you and godspeed with your endeavor.

    Thanks! I have time on the initial post - next weekend it will likely quickly devolve into something unintelligible. Depends how much S wants to drink I suppose, haha.

    Time will definitely help - a win might speed things along ; )

    In keeping with your horror theme, you should have a bloody mary and maybe one of those crazy dry ice drinks from dianaevoni's trip to Maestro. That purse is on point.

    Great ideas! :) I just hope I can remember when I get out there!

    Not sure I'll go all out horror, but it's definitely fun to have a little entertaining "focus" sometimes :D

    Look forward to following along! There is an older slot called monster jackpots you may want to try if you haven't already it is horror themed and has some fun bonuses. Good Luck but most importantly Enjoy!

    I like to plan out my trips too so love all the planning you do! Wishing you lots of good luck and I'l be looking forward to seeing lots of wins and food porn!

    That dry ice drink at Maestro drove me crazy the way it bubbled for 15 minutes, LOL, not sure I would order it again. Of course I'm the one who couldn't wait for my Lava Flow drink a week ago at the Venetian Luau to rise to the top before I started drinking it! ;)

    Looking forward to reading! BTW, if you're using tapatalk, all you have to do is make your post then go into edit then copy and paste into the other forum. The links for the pics copy right over. Found that out on my last trip!

    Please, can someone please put dvandentop out of his misery and have this drink? HAHAHA!

    Love the horror theme for the 13th!! Only thing that could make the purse better is lots of $$$$ sticking out of the pages! Good luck on getting the win to do that!

    Good luck and have a blast. Hoping for lots of jackpots that are multiples of 13. $1300, $ 2600, $3900, you get the idea. Win big.

    Haha- then maybe if they have the drink, we should really request NO reviews on it and ensure your are the 1st reviewer!
