4 Days Until Las Vegas

Christina leaves today to go to Las Vegas for a conference.  I would be a little jealous as I love Vegas.  However, I will be leaving Sunday for Las Vegas.  It's funny how every time I spell Las Vegas it comes out in my head LAAASS VEEEGAAAS in a loud rumbly voice.

I was going to be attending the KU - K-State game on Saturday but the person I was going with cannot get off work.  I was going to be a little tight on cash for both trips so it's o.k. that we're not going to Lawrence.  I would love to see the Cats play while they are doing so well this year.

I will be meeting a buddy from Ohio in Vegas and got a Las Vegas advisor coupon book for our trip.  It has all kinds of 2 for 1 coupons for buffets, along with show discounts and slot play coupons.  One of the tickets I am excited about is the 2 for 1 buffet at Rio's All World Buffet.  I've been wanting to try it for a long time.  So much for my weight loss next week.  I'll have to run a lot more when I get back.

I'm going to try to hit the 5th annual Caesar's palace poker classic on Monday for a 130.00 buy in no limit holdem event.  It might be a little hard since I'm arriving late Sunday night and will want to experience Vegas right away.  Hopefully I can get to bed a few hours after I get there and arrive early to register for the tournament.  I've been wanting to get in a big live tournament for a while.  This one should have a good turnout.

The rest of the time we will be playing smaller tournaments and checking out some of the casino's that have opened since we were there several years ago.

Maybe when I get back I can sneak off to Anthony lake for a couple bank fishing trips before I call it an end to my fishing season. 

Pheasant season will be starting soon.  It looks like the pheasant population is down around here and around Mom and Dad's.  It has been so good the last few years.  The lack of water and bugs has really hurt the population this year.  I still look forward to getting out and walking a few fields with Dad.  I just want a few pheasants to smoke and fry.

  1. We got married in Vegas. Love that city.

    I thought I was ready for poker in vegas having played $1 sit n' gos online before everything got shut down... I was not ready for people raising me $100 of my own money in a 1-2 cash no limit game. That rattled me pretty good. I came out +$16 and count it a big win.
