    Edited to add: This TR will appear exclusively on Vegas Boards, so follow here!

    One week countdown is on! Loafers on the ground in 173 hours! This is the bachelor party for one of my closest friends, I've been charged with organizing a heist for his 20 closest friends. It's like herding drunk cats. Fortunately, I'll be able to get a respite by parting with

    and @PayTriple. You know what kind of trip it's going to be if BS and PayTriple are my down time! Haha

    Like, BS, I've talked to @riders, @Rbroz, @rycelover, @dirtyshirley and @thestardawg. Hoping to meet up! If anyone else wants to meet up, PM me.

    The agenda:

    • Staying at Aria, with a block of rooms and a hospitality suite for the group to congregate in. The conference table will be used mostly for beer pong.
    • Landing at 10:30 a.m. Limo to Aria, drop bags, and straight to Lotus of Siam for lunch. Three bottles of Riesling later, my buddy and I will be Vegas-ready.
    • Dinner at Sage Thursday night with the group's legitimate degenerates who know a Thursday arrival is mandatory.
    • Early tee-times Friday morning at Bali Hai, which, as BS suggested, will be difficult, so I'm advising my golf mates to rely on mother nature's solution -- red bull and vodka -- in lieu of sleep.
    • Friday afternoon meet up with BS and PT to start the upward spiral into greatness. I'm guessing there will be some Yellow Label consumption, since I'll be picking up plenty.

    • Friday night, dinner at StripSteak for the whole group. They were super cool that, even though we're a large group (~20), and I've been going there a long time, that we can sit on the main floor and order off the regular menu.

    • Saturday, we'll nurse hangovers, curse alcohol, and be up bright and early for a team case race by the pool. This won't end badly at all. I plan to go in with a solid base of breakfast and a couple or three Corpse Revivers from Bouchon.

    • Saturday afternoon, the weak will take naps, while I will hit the tables. Or, more likely, continue the consumption at the Bungalow. I can only hope that this doesn't happen:

    • I could see an early appetizer run to Chada or Chada Street happening Saturday.
    • Saturday night, the group comes together once more -- hopefully we don't have any casualties by this point -- for dinner at Bazaar Meat.
    • From there? Let's just try not to get into too much trouble ... drink, gamble, bask in an all-nighter before we have to fly out on Sunday afternoon.
    • Sunday afternoon? You can find me stumbling through Pre-check with another round of Corpse Revivers propping me up. Hopefully my pockets are loaded with cash and not chips. Or worse yet, nothing at all.
    These are my major sign posts. I like that there are chunks of time to go hit the tables for an extended period, walk the Strip, and keep up with this TR. Apologies for the many, many typos to come. And please remember:

    Your organization is impressive. I cannot believe that Lotus of Siam isn't on the itinerary. Have a fantastic trip and good luck!
    I will definitely be following along!

    Sounds like a great trip planned. Looks forward to meeting up.

    I completely agree those last two pictures. I think that check liver light comes on every trip for me.

    Oops! Left it out! It'll be the first stop. I was putting the group fixed points as my markers. There will be plenty of Thai food and Riesling this trip. It always find a way into my belly!

    We definitely will! Plenty of time carved out for the group!

    I've had 11 and 13 on rotation for a few weeks now. I'll abstain for a few days, then binge all three next week in prep. Have to be mentally prepared.

    Sounds like the plans for a great trip. Look forward to following along. However, you may need a week to recover with that list. Good luck
