Thought it might be interesting to chronicle a COVID-19 guys trip to Vegas. This is a gambling forum at its core.

So this trip was originally planned for May 28. C-19 torpedoed that and we pushed it back to July 28- Aug 2

There were 9 guys originally in on the May trip. 19 days from the reschedule date and it looks like we are down to 5 (evidently we have some Vegas Dave's in our crew).


We are staying at Aria. This is the intel we have so far: no masks required at the pools and when you're seated at your restaurant. You are required to wear a mask in the casino.

Craps is capped at 6 players (not bad) and poker at Aria is capped at 6 players (not bad but the mask thing is the wild card as far as how enjoyable that is).

We are T-minus 19 days away before BLAST OFF.

At least you won’t be able to see the ‘budget hookers’ faces with the masks on.

So wait a "Vegas Dave" is what, someone concerned about the spread of COVID-19? I guess I can live with that, I've been called a lot worse lol.

I'm actually heading out to Vegas myself this month! Though won't be in the mix like you and your boys, going to hole up at a buddy's house and grind WSOP bracelet events online.

Good luck on your trip! Rumors swirling they might close down casinos again, hopefully you don't get fucked by shutdowns again.

I was already there :hey:
I thought I reported something.
Yeah some people are saying they might be shutdown again. I'm guessing no, if anything they could downsize/close some places for a while. Another full shutdown would be too much of a disaster. I'm guessing somebody in charge is smart enough to realize that.
In general I would characterize the feel in Vegas passable. Aria was not yet open.

It looks like the swirling rumors were bars closing (not the casinos themselves). I can live with that. I don’t hang out at bars when I’m there anyway.

At this point, I wouldn’t be shocked if the trip falls apart but as of now we are still going.

Thank you sir! I'll be out there from 7/20 - 7/27... playing 8 bracelet events total.

I hope the trip goes well, Tron!

Oh of course, our annual trip! He actually just made a deep run the other night:

Oh wow I arrive on July 28.
Yeah I'd have loved to stay through the end of the month but my fiance's birthday is on July 31 and I'm in enough trouble going on a week-long vacation without her haha.

Kudos for spelling it right :up

About 90% of English speakers trip up on that word. "Fiance" is the man, you homos.
I read this and thought "yeah, those homos!"

Then saw I misspelled it in my last post. Haha.
