    Well, after careful consideration, I will post my live trip report here, in Vegas Fanatics! I may do a semi live elsewhere, but since most of the people I've met in person are on this board, I'm putting it here :)

    My husband and I are heading out Wednesday mid-day - flying from DSM to facilitate getting the kids to their Aunt and Grandma :)

    We are staying at Cosmo in a Terrace Suite. I just started playing Cosmo last year and hit Platinum on the last trip. Staying on a free play offer w/ resort credit (around 600 + 200). There is a slot tourney, but not playing, don't want to give up my guaranteed fp.

    We also have a room double booked at PH, where I also have some freeplay ($300 I think). Two buddies from college will be staying there. One (R) will be in Wednesday afternoon, the other (B) will be in Friday night. This will be interesting as usually Hubs and I come alone :)

    Hubs has a friend (M) who will come out Friday and stay at Cosmo in our platinum friends comp room. I'm pretty sure they'll go out shooting on Saturday.

    Our Plans (very few...)
    I'm tentatively planning to head downtown Friday. Other than that, pretty much wide open I think. R, the friend heading out Wednesday, is a Vegas newbie, so we'll probably wander a lot. I always say I'll make it up to Wynn/Encore and V/P, we'll see if we actually make it this trip (kinda doubtful).

    Hoping for many handies and will be playing lots of sluts! Maybe some poker if the boys are interested. So far this year I have around $11k in handpays already! Sadly though, I'm in the hole about $2,500 from 1 trip to Vegas and a stop at the local.

    If I manage to keep up with this, expect lots of pics, sarcasm, awfully punny Jennifer jokes, poor drunk spelling, and possibly cussing (hopefully celebratory!)

    Come along for ride and if you are in town at same time, be sure to PM me and I'll try to say hello if we can!

    Here is part of my bankroll, what I took home from trip to local (Council Bluffs). I use a line of credit in Vegas, easier for me.

    Weather couldn't be better. Hopefully your luck in the casinos is equally sunny! Good luck!

    Good luck! Let's see lots of porn! That Velcro wallet just gave me a nice flashback to the 80's...I kinda miss the 80's...hahaha

    So excited to have your TR here!! Really looking forward to it!!

    You are doing the exact same set-up we used to do a couple years ago- we'd stay at Cosmo and double book over at PH!! It was fun heading to PH if we got bored at Cosmo. I suspect I will once again feel some sense of being homesick watching this report, haha!

    Looking forward to lots of drink, and handpay porn! Hope you can keep the handpay run going- just imagine how much you'd be in the hole without those, right??

    Love the Lego wallet BTW....let's see you fill it with bricks- would somehow be so punny appropriate?!?

    Good Luck!!!

    Haha, when I was a kid, foreign money was more of a collectible than actual money.

    Interesting that I never have a $50 bill. Also enjoy that casinos don't really use dimes or $10 bills :)

    Thanks! Lol, I bought this on the last trip, kind of a Lego nerd (OK, a lot, my entire house is like a minefield!)

    Thank you, it works well for us. We were CET before, but sure love Cosmo. It's nice to move around a bit though. First time the double booked room is actually getting used!

    Bricks in my brick wallet would be awesome (albeit unlikely) ;)

    I have to wait until my son gets older before I build this one. He has destroyed and lost pieces to all my other Legos...lol. I still need to get a monster Star Destroyer!

    My son is 6 and he is great with lego! He can find almost any piece in my lego room and we're now pretty good at keeping them contained to the lego room (well, and the dining room table!)

    We built the Simpsons house and Kwik-e-mart last month. The mart has super detailed pieces, it's awesome! I already have the Ghostbusters car and my sights set on the new headquarters! No massive star destroyer here, but lots of star wars in general :D

    Looking forward to this report. It will get me through the next 9 days. I am definitely going to be trying your namesake's drink on my next trip.

    Very excited to follow this report! Personally I try to avoid $50 bills, they remind me too much of Gaggles and Mackers days as indentured male prostitutes. Even worse was the $49.75 in change they had to carry around.

    Good luck on the trip and can't wait to see a BIG 5-Figure Handy!!!
