Boarding my flight to Vegas tonight... landing around 11 pm, and we're staying at the Flamingo. Going with a group of non-degen friends, so they have a lot planned in terms of clubbing, bars, and trendy restaurants. This means gambling won't be a huge focus... but maybe I can sneak out and degen by myself during off-hours :ninja:. Favorite casino games is craps and of course, poker. Praying for a sun run!

If I do end up playing poker, not sure what room I'll play at. Looking at Caesars (harvest $2's? do they still have inlayed $1's?), Horseshoe, and Venetian.

Have fun, but...
Landing around 11pm? You better be one of the first to the Flamingo because check-in there is a goddamned nightmare.
hopefully Thursday isn't too bad? Honestly didn't think about check-in lines... too used to airbnbs and just rolling up to the pad

Never checked in to Flamingo but everything at LINQ and Harrah's was digital, went pretty quick.

Wasn't a chipper when I played poker at Planet Hollywood but I had a lot of fun there. Some nightclub lite vibes with the music and the clubbers walking by.

OTOH craps at PH was a major buzzkill- unfriendly table and high minimum. I ended up playing at LINQ, much friendlier players and dealers and $15 minimum.
 
Starting the weekend with some run bad.

Flight delayed 1.5 hours... and Southwest lost my bag. Luckily not much of value was lost, just 2 bottles of cheap alcohol and a pair of sandals. Landed at 12:30 am, arrive at Flamingo 1:30 am.

@Quicksilver-75 was right about the Flamingo check-in... There were digital check-ins, but they were all down. Pictured below was maybe a dozen groups ahead of us. We didn't check in til 2 hours later. It was indeed a nightmare, never going back to Flamingo again.

At least we rewarded ourselves with some White Castle (though maybe some may consider this a punishment?). White Castle ain't all that and a bag of potato chips IMO, very underwhelming.

Finally heading to bed at 5:30 am... Not even sure if I'm gonna be up in time to go to the chip show :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
 
Sorry to hear that. I had hoped they had corrected those issues but....fwiw, those automated check-in kiosks have NEVER worked. Like, in 7 years. It's pretty sad. The Flamingo royally fucked me over after I reserved a top floor suite 6 months earlier. When we arrived we were told it wasn't available and were given a basic two bed room. Happy Honeymoon!

Wow. I almost booked Flamingo for my last trip... just so happened they were a little more expensive than LINQ. Bullet dodged.

5:30am White Castle is pure Vegas energy though. It's gonna be a good trip!
 
Y'all need to make sure you spend an hour or two at the pool. I know it's WSOP, but that's why you gotta balance your Vegas Views ranges.

From the sounds of it, @quintooo is gonna be pooling/lounging/bubblepartyclubbing.

No one wants to see BodyByBarrie doing that, but who knows what the future holds.
 
Everyone’s doing a trip report. I’m not making one, but saying hey on your non poker one!

Lines are def long. Luckily wife handles all this jazz for me.

What’s your party plans for tonight? I’ll be at Usher along with all the middle aged black women tonight.

No party plans for today. Tomorrow will be day club, I believe Zedd, some dinner reservations, and 2Chainz at night. Today is my "degen" day... as soon as I get some cash :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: Forgot to grab my cash wad on the way out of SJ. Damn debit card has a $200 limit and spent at the chip show.

Lunch with Doctor K after perusing the chip show:

Heading to Mauler in the Baller now... hopefully someone there can sell me $1-2k :bigbucks:

also, cards molds have made their way into chip show goodie bins:

I always liked MB but just never make it down that far on the strip. I did go there last trip for Stripsteak - the rib cap was incredible, and I bagged a few X on the craps tables as well before dinner.

Keep the gambol coming!
 
You need cash? Where you at, I can get you.
currently at mandalay bay, not sure where these chippers are :unsure:

If no one wants to give a stranger a couple grand, understandable, I'll meet up with you.

I'm going to cosmo for dinner I believe.

Awesome, just hmu if needed.

I ran $200 to $2k at roulette, but now every time we walk by in or out I throw another black on a number and lose $100
