    Starting this report a bit early. Lots of anticipation from my friend, Launa, and I. And tomorrow I'm going in for a combined endoscopy/colonoscopy for ongoing stomach issues, so wish me luck!

    Background - one day at work, the security guard asked me if I was at Foxwoods the previous weekend. I said yes, wondering how drunk I was because I had no recall of seeing her. We talked a bit and it just so happens this security guard plays slots very similar to me! We've become pretty good friends over the last 4 months or so.

    I hooked Launa up with the wonderful Bob Rosati (at MGM), and he gave her an offer of 4 nights in a salone suite, $150 RFB a day and limo to/from the airport based on her play at Foxwoods! (Now, remember, I didn't get a limo from Bob my last trip). Anywho, I also booked a comp salone suite for 4 nights with $250 freeplay and $200 RFB (not per day, just a flat $200)- I bet they take the rest of my food out of my ECs? I have $1,975 ECs built up. Let's say my theo is 4500, what should I get for comps?

    I'll be sharing the limo with Launa, and I also got her to ask for Michael Jackson One tickets, which Bob agreed to comp for her. I bet if I asked, he would have said I needed to use ECs?!

    So, Launa was all about riding the Big Red Bus Tour, getting bus passes and thinking there were Jitneys in Vegas like Atlantic City! I've tried to set her straight and let her know she can trust me on these things since I've had over 35 trips to Vegas!

    Here's the detailed plan of what Launa and I will attempt over the 4 days. I've tried to explain to her that it's rare to finish 50% of what you plan in Vegas, but she's determined. I hope I can keep up with her. The only things I don't want to do are go to a club and go downtown.

    I'm sure there will be all sorts of drunken debauchery over the course of the weekend. Will report on all shenanigans!

    I love that you plan everything out and pick restaurants. Even if you are only on plan half the time, it's still a great weekend. Good luck and hoping for many handpays for you.

    I really like Jean Phillipe in Bellagio for coffee/latte and pastries. The nutella brioche or fruit brioche are my favs.

    Wow! Your itinerary is very robust. 50% of that would be a full Vegas experience for a newbie. I'm following because I'm in town the 6th - 11th with a Vegas virgin as well. Have loads of luck and so much fun Launa plans her next trip before you depart this one.

    Love the planning

    I'm at work putting everything we want to do on a spreadsheet for our September trip. I swear I'm not that anal, but I gotta write it down somewhere and spreadsheets look like work.

    Good luck!

    I've eaten at Picasso once before, in 2012. I'm definitely looking forward to it again.
