Only a hour flight away from Las Vegas we visit frequently, sometimes once a month. I'll be sharing our trip reports, tips on making the most of your stay in Vegas, reviews of restaurants and shows we have seen, along with my thoughts related to our favorite place to get away from it all.

G2E and Grazie VIP Gift Extravaganza

Today, I'm packing and getting ready to leave for Las Vegas tomorrow morning. This trip's original purpose other then fun was to attend the VIP premiere night party for the Grazie Gift Extravaganza at Venetian with my friend Socalgirl.

It has now turned into catching the last day of G2E (Global Gaming Expo) and as I start to receive texts from them on the welcoming party and opening ceremonies as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary, I'm just sorry I didn't arrive yesterday instead. I might be able to catch a couple hours tomorrow before the Expo floor closes at 5:00pm but it's looking doubtful due to flight arrival, checking in at Venetian and then getting over to the convention center by at least 3:00pm.

Wish me luck that I make a couple hours on Wednesday since they close early at 3pm on their last day which is Thursday and there's a lot of exhibits that I just won't have time to check out. I definitely plan on going first to the WMS booth and then on to IGT, following up with Ballys, Aruze and Konami so hopefully I will have some information to share on their upcoming new slot machines.

More to follow tomorrow night!


  1. Really looking forward to your report on the Gift Extravaganza. We had the invite and was wondering what the points gave you. As Gold we have over 30,000 and I am sure you have a lot more.


  2. Dan, I do have a bit more, but we went last year when we had about 60,000 and they had plenty of gift choices for that amount and less. I think there are some small gifts like pens and stuff that one can get for like 5,000 points, but I'll check on Friday and let everyone know what the range was this year.

  3. Hoping you and SocalGirl have a great time at the VIP Premiere Night Party.


  4. I had just under 80k points this year. I got $125 in gift cards for Best Buy for around 72k points. I think it was 14k points equal a $25 GC.
