    I figured I'd add my trip report here, too. It's gonna be tough posting on 3 boards, none of them being VMB! I know we don't have alot of slotters on this board, so I hope I can provide some exciting content.

    * Dates: 4/3 - 4/6
    * Where: Mandalay Bay - 2 bedroom Panoramic King Suite - and I'm all alone! :(
    * What: $1000 in food and beverage for little old me to use in 3 days!
    * FP: Only $175

    My flight leaves CT at 6:50am, that means I'll be waking up at 3:30am to get ready, then drive to airport parking (only a 10 minute drive) and hopefully get to the airport by 6am, leaving only 20 minutes til boarding starts (but Southwest never boards on time!).

    Arrival in Vegas will be 9:40am! Very early.
    I'm a victim of MGM's PGP (Profit Growth Plan) and my host decided to NOT give me a limo. So, first of 33 trips where I'll be taking an Uber to my casino destination.

    Day 1 - 4/3: (all plans are tentative!)
    * Checkin
    * Take pics of room
    * Fleur - for brunch and drinks
    * Meet up with a guy I met on Tinder in CT who booked his own trip
    * Gamble at Mandalay Bay
    * Ask Mandalay host if I can dump Bob Rosati
    * Red Square for 4pm happy hour - Moscow Mules
    * RxBoiler room for 5pm happy hour
    * Gamble
    * Tender at Luxor for Dinner
    * Gamble
    * If I'm still awake at 9pm (meaning I'd been up more than 24 hours), check out the new Skyfall Lounge at Delano for drinks

    Day 2 - 4/4:
    * Wake up (it will probably be like 5am cause I'm on East Coast time), Pedialyte, Extra Strength Excedrin
    * Maybe a light meal if feeling ok
    * Either walk or Uber to Bellagio
    * Lago -meet NhChris from JWE at Lago at Bellagio and let her help me eat some of my F&B
    * Gamble a bit more at Bellagio
    * Cosmo - try a Verbena, finally! - Have some more drinks at Cosmo
    * Maybe get Secret Pizza slice
    * Gamble a good amount at Cosmo - I think I want to go here for my next trip instead of an MGM property
    * Gamble at ARIA
    * Sage or Lemongrass for dinner at ARIA<
    * Maybe hook up with Treyster and Linda from JWE at some point today?
    * Gamble more at Aria
    * Maybe get 5-0 Pizza slice
    * Back to Mandalay to gamble or crash

    Day 3 - 4/5:(all plans today are very tentative)
    * Wake up whenever
    * Maybe room service breakfast
    * Maybe gamble at Mandalay or go back to Bellagio/Aria depending on how Mandalay has treated me
    * Or gamble at NYNY
    * Maybe go to MGM to eat at Wolfgang Puck's place
    * Gamble at MGM
    * Joel Robuchon L'Atelier - maybe do the tasting menu: OR
    * Shibuya - do the tasting menu?
    * Plans for the 3rd day are pretty flexible
    * Try to use up the entire $1000

    Day 4 - 4/6:
    * Room Service Breakfast
    * I never play my last day - maybe go see Shark Reef again
    * Or watch an in-room movie
    * Or whatever!
    * Go home with all of my original bankroll plus a lot more!!! $$$
    * Checkout 3pm

    It will be interesting to see how closely you can stick to the plan. Hopefully the hand pays will delay some!
