    I've been waffling about going to Vegas. Had some business in Seattle so couldn't come the first weekend so the second weekend rolls around and I'm thinking I need a Vegas trip but it is so freaking hot.

    I hear that Sindustry is coming in but staying at Aria. Then I get a text that some more board members will be there.

    I'm still waffling. I get a text that we will play Shadow Creek. Still not enough since it is still too hot in Vegas.

    I'm told there is a Fairway Villa and two bedroom penthouse at Aria booked, and I'm still waffling. Then, Ms. pphold decides she would like to build a new house so we put our house on the market.

    So, I should get out of the house for the weekend. This was on Thursday and I'm still thinking should I go to Vegas.

    Finally I decided to go on Friday at 6pm. I'm checking flights. Being the summer no more $100 RT flights. No Extra flights booked. I'm checking AA and even Spirit. Then I decided to fly SWA. I have a bunch of SWA miles, I figure I would use some. I hate to fly Southwest but I guess it is OK to book last min.

    I booked to leave in the afternoon on Saturday and land in Vegas at 3pm. I figure I would fly back at 4pm on Monday. This will give me about two days in Vegas.

    Rooms are already there and I just need to confirm. I confirmed and I email my host to tell her I'm flying in but I don't need her to book anything. She asked if I wanted a limo. I said it has already been taken care of.

    Pretty cool. The flight is on time but I'm turned around and did not know where to go when I get off the Plane and it takes me 30 mins to get to meet the Wynn Phantom driver. Soon as I see him hold the Ipad with Mr. PPHOLD. My phone rings. It is the Wynn asking if I meet the driver. I tell the Wynn dispatch it was my fault but yes we are headed to the Car.

    It is always nice to take the Rolls Royce Phantom. I'm getting way too spoiled with this.

    I'm dropped off at Tower suites and check in. I drop off my bags and head over to Aria. Sindustry and another Member is there. I was going to get a limo but I see an Uber driver there I open the app and request Uber and it is accepted and I'm in the car. Faster than a Cab or Limo.

    I get to Aria and head to the two bedroom Sky Suite.

    The room is super nice, but I bet they will screw me over some way.

    We all go down stairs and play some Blackjack in HL. I don't like the table so the other person plays and he is getting killed with dealer drawing to 21 and 20 on 4 and 5 up cards. This is nuts so we go out to the floor.

    We get to a shoe game with $100 min. This dealer is nicer and we both start to win. I was up $1500 after the first shoe and then we play till the next shoe and it turns mid shoe so we color up and we are both in the black. Not much but still up.

    We head to HL slots for some VP and slots. I hit Cats for a few bonus and the other person hits a Handpay for $2500.

    Sindustry is having dinner with his family so he wants to play later. We decided to go to Mizumi for dinner.

    We get a limo back to Wynn for dinner. Dinner was great. I forgot to take pics. We all head to the fairway Villas after Dinner.

    Super nice view but I just landed and wanted to go gamble. I hit the Encore for some blackjack and was doing great till this guy comes up and does some weird plays. He would surrender on 12 with $100 min bet. He would hit 14. WTF.

    Any ways I'm up a few yellows so I color up and said forget this. I head to my room at Wynn and the other person heads to Aria.

    Sindustry text me that he wants to go to Caesar's for some slots and has some FP.

    I've had some bad luck at Caesar's so I said no I'll join you at ARIA.
    WHAT pphold wants to go to Aria? I like the Casino.

    I meet up with Sindustry and he is playing UTH. I walk up and he hits trips. Next he wins on a Straight then a flush then a full boat. I say now you just need to hit quads and a royal flush. He said if I get Quads I'm done.
    Of course he says don't move. I've won every hand since you been here. He has a full boat and of course the dealer turns over a bigger full boat.

    Should not have said anything. And what is worse is he does not stop and loses like everyhand. and was getting good hands just the dealer would turn over better hands. A higher flush or full boat or higher straight.

    Time for some HL slots and VP.

    VP was not nice to me but Sindustry hits a HP on the VP. I'm up and down and hit on $10 slots not a HP but still OK. Lots of close HP. I hate slots when it gives you just a half off from a big HP.

    We try the VP outside and I donk off all I won from the HL room.

    We decided to go play Baccarat at HL. I win a few yellows again and it is like 5am now so I've been up almost 24 hours. Time for me to go to bed so I head back to Wynn to try to get some sleep. That didn't happen.

    I get a text to meet at Aria for Bruch or Lunch. Going to meet up with PT.

    I'm almost human again. Just ate too much Tex mex. Wednesday night was a whirlwind night in LV. Just counted my wallet.....the TITO may have had an extra zero in it. No wonder I played for so long. Haha

    We will do Shreveport soon. Perhaps end of September.

    This quad sucks. Was hoping for the other wild 2 for a big hand pay.

    I remember wondering what those were when I flew over them the first time so I googled it a while back. They plant crops that way because of how they water them. It's pretty cool.

    Now I'm always on the lookout for them because I know I only have a few hours left in my flight when I start seeing them in Kansas.

    You sneaky bastid, PP! Last time I saw you, Cosmo wouldn't cash your Aria chips. I hope you ended up with a billion quarters from there so you can hit the Pinball HoF one more time!
