Easter Sunday: Flew from MSP to LAS, arriving just before 8am Vegas time. Headed to rental center to grab our rental which we ended up upgrading to a mustang convertible for a grand total of $200 for 6 days woo! Headed out to Plaza to check in, picked up Aunt and Uncle at the airport and back downtown to start our vacation! Ate brunch at Hash House a Go Go, but unfortunately was unimpressed with my meal, but oh well!! Our room at Plaza was very nice. Very clean, updated and large! I can vouch for others in that the atmosphere in the casino at plaza isn't great, but I proceeded to gamble there anyway, taking advantage of the Free Play rebate up to $100. Day 2: Spent time at the pool, headed back to gamble for a while. The rewards desk recommended that I work with a host based on my play (this has never happened to me before). I worked with a host, Oscar, and obtained a $100 comp for Oscar's steakhouse for the 4 of us. What a phenomenal meal! Best filet I've ever had, terrific drinks and great service. Spent the rest of the night on Fremont. Day 3: Checked out of Plaza, ate breakfast at DuPar's which was very good. Get the pancakes!! Checked in at Excalibur to begin our Strip stay. Our room was.... Let's just say I will never stay in their standard room again. That evening we headed over to meet for dinner at my Aunt and Uncle's home base over at Tropicana. Ate dinner at the Café there which was decent. This began my best gambling run ever! Playing slots, I was able to hit for $300, then for $600 both at Tropicana and without dropping anything back. At this point I'm heading out to meet up at Paris with a new friend I made while downtown . She must have been my good luck charm. After losing about $100 I hit my biggest jackpot yet, $2000! Day 4: Picked up my Uncle and played a round of golf at Los Prados Golf Club. I had picked up a deal on Groupon and was well worth a fun diversion. The club itself is rather outdated, in a gated community. The course though, was a fun sporty, short course that was playable and in great shape. After the round we headed back for pool time and to get ready for the evening. I wanted to take everyone out for dinner at the patio at Comme Ca for their special burger/drinks. Well, turns out the patio was booked for a function that evening... So we stayed in the bar area for happy hour. Although not impressed with the drink prices, everything else was fantastic. The burgers were great, the oysters were awesome and the shrimp cocktail were huge!! Caught the Blackhawks game in the cosmopolitan sports book and hit the strip for the rest of the evening. Day 5: Last full day, we headed to mid strip for the afternoon/night. Ate at Harrah's Oyster Bar and was one of the best meals of the trip. I highly recommend this place!! The oysters were fantastic, the drinks were good and everyone's dishes were incredible. This is a 5 star restaurant that I have not seen mentioned. Headed out to the linq and the new O'sheas, staying out until about 3am. After getting back to Excalibur and having a bite to eat I decided that I needed to try Craps before we had to check out. Keep in mind, the only Craps I've ever played was on my phone. The open table was $10 min and even though I was leery I knew I wanted to play. Put down $100 and proceeded to play for about 3 hours, cashing out with $675. Took a 10 minute break and went back for more. Grabbed my $100 in chips and after another 2 hours, cashed out with $800+. By this time it is 8:30am and I have not slept. So after all that blabber, I would say that I had a great trip. Having had a couple of the best meals in my life, working with a host for the first time (not the last) and meeting someone that could be a lifelong friend. Ahhh I love Vegas.........
