    Mrs. P and I decided that, after reading everyone else's TR's we needed to do a quick getaway of our own.

    Sadly, work schedules won't let us go to Vegas right now but we did work out a quick jaunt back to Lake Charles where we will be the invited guests of L'Auberge Hotel and Casino. Quick and easy schedule as follows:

    Friday May 10th: Probably not going to be able to hit the road until around 6PM-ish so I'm expecting somewhat of a late arrival at the casino, possibly 9-10 PM CDT. This probably means that our usual first night Ember dinner will be postponed to night 2. But we're planning on grabbing a bite at Asia which is open until 2 AM. Other plans that evening will be drinking and some gambling.

    Saturday, May 11th: Gaming day, with short breaks for food at either Cadillac Cantina or Bill's Burgers, and THEN our dinner at Ember. But most of the day is going to be a hunt for Royals, good slot hits and many drinks.

    Sunday, May 12th: Plan is to hit the road fairly early in order to get us home prior to 3PM. We have to pick up the pups from Puppy Camp on Sunday so that no one has to be late to work on Monday. I've been sick this week, out Monday and Tuesday, so I really need to show up Monday on time.

    I've had a couple of 'meh" trips in a row since Tulsa on the gambling front, not bad, but certainly not great, so it's time to hit the good side of the standard deviation in Lake Charles methinks. New thing on this trip: Mrs. P will be driving her new vehicle instead of me driving so I should be able to post many updates on the trip over and back.

    Good luck!

    I was actually thinking of a quick trip to Vegas but rooms are CRAZY expensive (I have two offers booked already) the weekend of the 17,18,19 so I am considering Laughlin.

    No chance. That new car is her baby. She's looking forward to the drive. I'm looking forward to sleeping on the way over. :D

    Lol! I’m glad she’s enjoying it. Your ride will go much faster getting to Bucees or however you spell it. None of those in our area!

    This is shaping up to be an interesting weekend. I'm sitting here now, at work, with a heating pad in my chair because my back seized up yesterday, rather embarrassingly as I was sitting down in my office chair, and it hurts. I was home with a cold Monday and Tuesday.

    My wife is suggesting this is a "sign" that we shouldn't go to Lake Charles, but she still wants to go obviously, I'm trying to tell her that this just means that all of my bad luck is getting out of the way the week prior.

    At least, that's my working theory.

    Sometimes, a getaway is all you need to get to feeling like yourself again. Or... like you said, just getting all of the bad luck outta the way now!

    Be sure to call L'auberge on Friday and let them know you'll be late. They have a new policy on late arrivals (but you may already know that).

    Best of luck to you both!!!

    I have. Once I made the reso I called them and added a late arrival notice. I almost got burned on that once before. :oops:

    Glad you have a chance for a quick getaway!! Nothing takes your mind off your troubles, aches or pains like several hours hammering away at VP and sipping cocktails!!

    Have a lucky trip!!

    Just about to leave work for the week.

    So, home.

    A mini-bankroll picture, some cute puppy pictures, packing and back therapy and before you know it tomorrow afternoon will be here.

    Looks like we're going to get a road trip break from the rain. Then it will pour both in Houston and Lake Charles while we're there. Good thing we decided against the pool cabana. [​IMG]

    Started off with dealt Aces. No kicker though. Good start still.
