I have to admit that I wish I could’ve stretched this Vegas trip out just a touch, so that it could have included this up-coming weekend as well. I was really looking forward to catching up with Falstaff and the gang. By the sounds of things, I’ll possibly be looking for high 5’s from mookie and Falstaff, as we walk through MaCarron. I just figured/found out that we'll be missing Mr. and Mrs Wife! That's incredibly dissapointing to me!
For the first time in ages, I do not have a set in stone itinerary set up. Hell, I haven’t even decided what tourney or events I’m going to look at getting into. This is really bizarre for Peb’s and I. But we are looking at this trip in a completely different way for a few reasons. First and foremost, is the fun factor. We’ve always had fun, don’t get me wrong! It’s just that we’ve done such a great job planning everything down to the letter that we know we’ve missed some special opportunities along the way. Secondly, it’s very different this time around, as we’ll be traveling as part of a group of ten. This is a completely different experience for me. I like meeting groups and I like everything about the blogger get-togethers, but this will be a first for me. I see no problems related to traveling with anyone in the group, I can tell you that. All truly good friends, that I’m very lucky to have. Some are Vegas newbies too, and it’s going to be a lot of fun watching their reactions to some of the goings on throughout the week.
So, I don’t have a ton of things planned for the trip, but there are a few things I really do want to do for sure. With our trip starting a week today, I figured I’d better look at some of the plans I have made and make sure I’m not double booked anywhere’s along the way. Let me tell you, it ain’t easy being an EH-lister! Everyone always wants a piece. ;o)
Tuesday – During the day, probably get everyone pointed in the direction of their choosing. I might try and see if I can find CK and her 130 lbs. of fury too. Then there will be some beverages hoisted at The IP. I promised ElSnarfeGrande and therefore, I will keep my word. So drinks and possible debauchery with the folks of The Corporation it is then. You will find Pebbles and I, somewhere near Let it Ride and The Geisha Bar in the PM’ish.
Wednesday – Hook up with Pauly. This is a “two-birds, one stone” no-brainer for me. The $5000 NLHE event starts at noon and Pauly will be at the Rio doing what he does second, (he’s the best lucky charm for me) best, covering all the action. That reminds me, I hope you’re all taking advantage of the Great Gazoo linkage over there to the right! I obviously want to see my friend and did I mention, GOOD LUCK CHARM? But this will also give me an opportunity to witness what I’ve only been able to read about up until now. Life in the WsoP for Pauly. Note I didn’t say at! He get’s right in there and mixes it up for what I personally feel, is the absolute best coverage available. I really want to see him in action.
Thursday – Do whatever the hell Pebbles wants to do day!
Friday – Open BUT, I’m hoping to catch up with VinNay, Astin, HOY, Cmitch, $mokkee, Bayne and anyone else hanging around for the “mulligan weekend.” My cell #’s on the spreadsheet we’ve all shared, and I’m hoping it gets well used to bring us all together at least once during the week.
Saturday – Open until the ‘very’ red-eye takes off.
So there you have it. Like I said earlier on, no real set in stone plans for the trip. Just some big ass-perations for meeting a few friends as I go along the way. Hopefully I’ll get to meet some of the Bloggers and players that I have not had the chance to meet as of yet. And I really hope I get the chance to see a few of my friends whom I haven’t seen in far, far too long a time.
So I go to Vegas with some great old friends, I’m looking to meet up with some dear old friends and hopefully hooking up with a few IIF’s that I haven’t been fortunate enough to meet before. This may just be one of my best Vegas trips to date!
BRING IT ON !!!!
My sincerest thanks for dropping by….
