Where better than Vegas for Mother's Day? 5/12-5/17 @ Cosmo

    So the title is a little misleading because we didn't actually realize that it was mother's day when we booked everything. We booked flights, room, scheduled vacation, etc. about three months ago and didn't realize for quite awhile that it was mother's day. Oops.

    We land at 10 tomorrow in Vegas after hopping on an early flight. It makes for a long day but we enjoy having the whole day ahead of us when we get into town.

    We're staying all five nights at Cosmo but will be switching rooms after the first two when transition from my comp to my wife's. Which reminds me that @MrsPTD is in the house! She finally registered and will occasionally be adding her own pictures, thoughts and updates when we go our separate ways on certain days.

    We don't have a ton of things planned out but I have a huge list of possible places to eat and things to do depending on what mood we're in. We will be renting a convertible Mustang again and are be bringing $4k for gambling. It will be a healthy mix of table games and slots with some VP sprinkled in this time. Table games will be heavier in the beginning of the trip with lots of UTH, craps and roulette.

    The only definitive plans are:

    - Maverick helicopter evening ride tomorrow night @ 9:30
    - @MrsPTD will have a daybed at the Boulevard pool while I go watch Endgame at the Palms Theater
    - Brad Garrett comedy club (he's hosting!) on Wednesday night @ 8pm
    - Use some myvegas and LVA coupons (who doesn't like free?)

    Goals for the trip:

    - First handpay
    - Bring enough of the bankroll home for our early June trip
    - Add some chips to my collection
    - Have a great time and give @MrsPTD the pampering and degeneracy she needs!

    Welcome to the board @MrsPTD!
    My first trip to Vegas was my first ever Mothers Day in 2005...I felt bad for about 1.5 minutes when I called home on the Sunday, but then the guilt disappeared real fast
    Have a great trip you two! Interested on your thoughts of the Maverick trip, I'm going to book it on my next trip to drain some of the LP's I have on the game, good luck!

    Thanks, couldn't agree more!

    Oh yes, we will! Can't wait to pull in the parking garage when that Cosmo scent first hits you and it almost feels like coming home. Thanks Steph!

    So funny thing is neither @MrsPTD nor myself are really big in holidays, so of course we had a kid who literally lives for them. As soon as Valentine's Day was over she was already getting ready for St. Patrick's Day lol. Figures! I'll make sure to post my thoughts on the helicopter ride later tonight. Neither of us have been on one before so we're both really excited, and a little bit nervous lol.

    Than you @TR888!

    Just having coffee now and getting ready. We'll head to the airport in about an hour and a half. Flying United with a quick layover but I have some Vegas podcasts and the Hangover on the tablet to keep us entertained until we get to Vegas.

    Thanks @clarkgriswald! The good thing about having some non gambling things planned (forgot to mention we'll at least take a drive out to Red Rock Canyon tomorrow and maybe go for a hike) is that we always have fun even if the gambling doesn't go well. That being said, I'm hoping to post some serious slot and chip porn this time around haha.

    Thanks @SamIAm!

    Skies are clear, no wind, plane is already waiting at the airport and weather looks great in SF for our layover. Maybe we'll even get in a little early...

    When we land, we’re running our bags to Luxor and then catching an Uber up to Cosmo for our first drinks and to try to meetup with the Slot Cats before they head back to Cali. Just made it to Chicago, you’ve got some catching up to do :wink:

    Good luck! Glad the Mrs is joining the TR too!

    It’s fun to split up part of the time and then catch up on each other’s wins or activities!

    Best Riches on your trip! Just a thought, but if you ask to have your two reservations linked, there is a chance you may not have to move rooms....it is worth asking. Have a great time. Love the Cosmo.

    Just landed in SF a little early. Doesn't really help since we're waiting to connect anyway. Hope your final leg goes smoothly!

    Thanks @BoVegas!

    We always have a little bit alone time planned so we can do things the other wouldn't necessarily enjoy. Hope we can keep up with Ron!

    @MrsPTD gets a much better comp than I do so it'll be a room switch and an upgrade!

    Thanks @Pleasemum! We'll be stopping by Essence for cartridges and a few pre rolls later today. I'll make sure to take pictures of what we end up getting.
