    What a great trip. After landing in Vegas, I didn't really have time to Check in on here. It was non-stop eating, drinking, and gambling....just the way it was supposed to be.

    First and foremost, huge thanks to Aaron and VM for spending the time to shop, pack, and haul all of the party favors as well as organizing everything. And of course Happy Birthday.

    I'm guessing others will do a longer and more detailed recap, so I'll keep this short and sweet. Just a few thoughts and a Best Of from the weekend. Disclaimer - I slept maybe 6 hours total from Thursday morning - Sunday night so he whole trip is one long blurry day in my memory. Here we go...

    Best Meal - Carbone on Thursday night with JB, Bronco, BS, and Riders. The first meal of the trip was my favorite. Great food as always, great Old Fashioned, and great company. Except for JB's drink - that shit was bitter. Thanks Riders.

    Best Gamble: Baccarat. One night (pretty sure it was Friday) we had a dozen people playing/hanging out at one table in Cosmo for about 4-5 hours and had an absolute blast. Lots of laughs. Not the most profitable session of the trip, but certainly the most fun.

    Best Scenery: Marquee Dayclub. Wow, just Wow. I never figured myself to be one of those assholes playing 6:5 blackjack in a casino when there's a 3:2 game in the house. However, I must admit that for low rolling, the scenery of Marquee more than makes up for the reduced payout.

    Best Only In Vegas Sight: Sometime around 4AM RockyBalboa and I are walking back to Cosmo and we spot a full size school bus outside on the strip in front of PH. It's painted like a cop car and we see the cops handcuffing hookers on a bench and loading them all on to the bus. Literally a busload of hookers. You still have the pic Jason?

    Biggest Degen: Aaron without a doubt. Dude had a Constanza wallet full of handpays halfway through the first night. Quick story: We meet for the slot pull and he hands over his buy in and says "let me know if we win anything" and then walks away to keep playing. While we are all busy hollering on and paying attention to the group pull, I spot him a few machines over with a shitty grin on his face and a locked up machine in front of him. Well played sir.

    On the gambling front, I did a decent job of sticking to my game plan, and it worked. I played mainly Bacc, BJ, and craps. I also cut back on the slots and added in some VP. Overall, I finished the trip up $2,600.

    My only regret is going to the airport an hour too early and missing a great bacc shoe.

    I had an awesome time, with great people, and left with more money than I came with. Can't beat that right?

    It's Monday evening and time to pack up and head home! 5 days in Vegas is pretty tiring!

    Here's another photo dump from the second half of the trip.

    The $10K hit on $100 Top Dollar put me on top for the trip.

    I learned that on $100wof it doesn't pay $200 for a cherry when you get a spin on the same combination! IMG_3828.JPG IMG_3847.JPG IMG_3862.jpg IMG_3864.jpg IMG_3850.JPG IMG_3867.JPG IMG_3868.JPG IMG_3870.JPG IMG_3871.JPG IMG_3875.JPG IMG_3876.JPG IMG_3879.JPG IMG_3880.JPG IMG_3893.JPG

    What a great weekend to meet new friends and old friends! Happy birthday @VegasMonkey!

    I'm stealing @WOF-KING style! Nice to meet you sir! I'm not a slot guy but always down to support and try to get lucky! Next time!

    @3vees Nice to meet you, hope you made it out ok! We catch up soon in OC

    @Aaron5 Thanks for the hospitality and making it happen, too bad we lost in Bacc but I'm soo glad you and @Sindustry hit that big one later on, i felt bad because i ended up winning it back after the "team" money was gone and you guys hit that jackpot after our "team" money was gone, good times for sure!

    @Sindustry Nice to meet you and glad you were able to join us for dinner! Hope you got most of your bankroll back with that hit with Aaron! Sorry for the bacc lost, there is always next time!

    @kFURY Aka Vegas Queen! Good times as always! Where do you put all your food?

    @broncofn Habibi hugs all around! Always great to see you brother! We are still on a roll at the bacc table longterm i think 5-0 sessions maybe not counting Wynn last time as i was mostly degening and you weren't playing! Soo glad to see you get that W this trip!!!

    @PACKER Finally got to meet you! Sorry to see you lose but we both know the good times and memories we had are priceless!

    @SDSteve Good to see you again, looks like you didnt sleep at all this trip!

    @BS WTF happened man! The last time i saw you, you were killing it! Sorry to see you what happened, trust me, it happened to me 2 weeks ago as you know...lets try to learn and grow from our struggles! See you next time!

    @DirtyShirley You got a badass husband! Soo chill and let you degen your ass off!!! Always good to see the both of you!

    @Way2fast Shit, i found me a new bacc partner....you made me about 20 tanks of gas off those $100 support bets! Very nice to meet you! Im positive we will be at it again! See you Friday? Lol

    @Hard4 Dude, great time! Nice to meet you! Wins all around and congrats on the new addition!

    @44inarow Nice to meet you finally! Sorry about your luck with the gambol but the positive side is we all had a great time!

    @RockyBalboa Good times! Sorry to you didn't come out on the positive side but great job shutting it down when you hit your stop, that takes lots of control and dicipline! Kudos!

    Anyone else i left off JB, Ms. BJ and husband, PT, etc...good to see and meet everyone!


    Very very truly sorry to those that had lunch at Milos and i dippped out, i had maybe 7 or so glasses of Macallan18 before you guys joined me in HL room and it hit me at Milos while we were waiting for the food, i had to go lay down! I felt horrible later on about leaving even with our Host at the table, but i didnt want to pass out on the table!

    I didn't take many pics but here are the few i did! Ended up +17k!!!! Finally got my W!!! Until next time!!! Paul

    I will post a little recap of my vantage point of the fun weekend tomorrow evening. But in the mean time a tip of the cap and a huge thanks to @VegasMonkey and @Aaron5 for their work in making this weekend happen. Glad to see that VM was able to have a helluva birthday weekend!

    So until tomorrow's recap here is the hilarious scene that @Hard4 mentioned...the police bus load of hookers being corralled in front of PH at 4am Sunday morning...

    I will actually be in Atlantic City on Friday for a black jack tourney. It has been over 2 years since I have been there. Wish it was Vegas though.

    Great photos and thanks for the recap! Congrats on the awesome win! You were due as you have had some brutal trips prior to this one. Sorry I missed out on meeting so many of you again. I'm ALWAYS losing damn it! Those checks were a thing of beauty! Maybe someday I'll be able to post a photo of my wins in a TR! Hahaha
