It's Labor Day weekend. I'm skipping out around 2:00 today for a quick trip to Vegas. Set to arrive late this evening, and flying back east early Monday (like, far too early). A debaucherous business trip of sorts. Primary objective is to get down on some NFL futures before the season starts next week. Secondary objective is to rack up 32,000 MLIFE Points to hit Platinum again. Taking this trip with my buddy MK. Our goals further include being up for tomorrow's noon college kick offs (9:00 am local time); playing some pokerz; and, of course, hitting up two prime dinners. Our last trip, over MLK weekend, during the course of three days, MK and I hit SW Steak, Nobu and Strip Steak - not a bad run of fine dinning (at least, I THINK we hit Nobu. It's hard to recall. I believe we began that day with breakfast beers at MGM, rolled to PH for beers and NFL playoffs, then to the Linq for beers and beers; then to Ruths' Chris for a quick wine which, as things tend to happen, turned into a bottle of cabernet, and THEN ended up at Nobu for dinner (which included another bottle of wine).
All this sounds good in theory; but we'll see how this plays out in reality. [For] it's been a busy week [u see]; I've been slammed at work and haven't slept more than 5 hours any night this week. And, in order to take off a few hours early today, I woke up at 4:30 am to get an early start. I'm hoping to power through festivities on heart, desire and adrenalin. As we all know, gambling is hard WORK of course.
