    My Trip Report

    So I had flight credit to use at Southwest and money to burn. What better place to go than Vegas?

    So me and the girl friend I always party with decided to go.

    I left work at 3:00 pm on Friday and my boyfriend drove me to the airport. We met up there and just chit chatted and ate a bit before our flight.

    When we got to Vegas, we shuttled to Excalibur. We asked for a room facing the Luxor, (I stayed in a room facing Luxor when I tried molly for the first time, loved the lights!) but they didn't have anything available so he hooked us up with a view of New York New York instead. Sweet deal.

    And we like to get to the clubs early to avoid lines, so by that time it was already 8:30 or so, so we started getting ready to go out. One of our other friends came over to hang out too. We didn't have time to buy a bottle so we just ordered 4 chilled vodka shots with orange juice backs at the hotel bar. We downed them and then took a cab to Marquee to see ATB.

    I forgot how nice Marquee is. It's large, and there's actual space to sit outside. The first time I didn't like it because they made us walk up a million flight of stairs. There was no issue this time, the elevators got us there.
    The club was cool, the music was cool, and we met some really cool gentlemen. We eventually left around 1 to our favorite Vegas club, Rose Rabbit Lie.

    We didn't have our names on the guestlist, so we peeked over it and said (lied) that they used my boyfriend's last name instead of mine. Got in with our two free drink tickets to boot.
    Rose Rabbit Lie is always a good time. Great performances, sweet drinks, and okay music. The drink tickets this time were for the drink "The Devil Inside" which was a clear alcohol fruity concoction. I drank way more in total that night than my counterpart, per usual.
    They closed off the main dance room and we were escorted to the "study" where we chatted with a guy we met, and who eventually gave us a ride back to our hotel. (Real smart catching a ride with a stranger I know, ugh.) He called us the next day, as did other people we met. But we promptly ignored him/them.

    The next morning, we grabbed smoothies and headed to Daylight Beach Club. Oh and I can't forget the part where I pre-gamed with a bottle of peach New Amsterdam I bought the night before - and promptly threw it all up. I was fine though, ready to go again!

    Daylight was cool. We got two free drink tickets there too, but they only lasted until 2 pm.
    My favorite part of Daylight was this extremely large girl who was dancing like she thought she was the sexiest bitch in the place. It was awesome. And she had her wire sticking out from her swimsuit top too. She was such a sight to see.

    We left and grabbed something quick to eat, at Earl's in Planet Hollywood I think. I couldn't eat, and ended up puking again. But I swear, I was fine! Then my friend gambled a little bit, not much. I rarely gamble, it makes me too nervous. I get a rush off of it that I don't usually like. Then we napped for a couple hours until it was time to get ready for the club again. This time we were heading to XS. No pre-gaming for me, I wasn't going to drink anymore that night.

    This was my first time to XS, and it was horrible. We were on the guestlist, but when we got inside they said we still had to pay to get in the actual inside club part. WTF? Well we wanted to see David Guetta that night, so we paid the $30.
    But everyone was packed in worse than Sardines. No room to dance, let alone walk. It was ridiculous. We couldn't do it. We bailed at 1 when Guetta still hadn't shown. I literally pushed people out of my way, I got so pissed. We headed over to Rose Rabbit Lie again. This time a promoter stopped us in the hotel before we got there, so we got in legit.
    We wanted to keep dancing when they closed the dance floor at 3, so we left and headed to Hakkasan. They were hesitant but let us in even though they were closing at 4. There was cotton everywhere, like they had held a pillow fight or something. It was crazy, but crazy fun.
    When it closed at 4 we met some guys that said there was a club at Bally's that was open from 4 am - 10 am. We were going to share a cab with them and go, but my friend was in too much pain from her feet blisters. So we headed back.
    Before we went to sleep though we met up with some of our friends again. Traded goods from the night.

    The next day, my friend was trashed from the night before, where she was drinking way more than me for once. (I did end up drinking that night, once we got to Rose Rabbit Lie. And I didn't puke it up nor was I hungover the next day. Yay.)
    But she promised me we were going to Wet Republic for Steve Aoki that day, because she wanted to leave Daylight so early. So we went. But she was a poor sport most of the time. But I guess she was feeling really sick, I thought she was just being whiny at first, because that's how she had been on and off the entire trip. But... yeah. I made her stay at Wet Republic until we had to leave for our flight around 4:30 pm. We hated each other at that point though. But it was fun for me, we met up with friends and people we had met earlier in the trip. We danced, we drank, and I got a huge red bull vodka in a souvenir cup for $52 which lasted me the whole day.

    It was a good girls trip, and I'm going again with my boyfriend this upcoming weekend. This time we're driving. We want to see Deadmau5 before he stops performing at clubs.

    Your trip reminded me of my earlier, single years. We used to visit Vegas when there was only a couple of clubs, if you can believe that. Club Rio and something off the strip - The Drink, I think. That scene has come a long way.

    Way to go after it though! It will be interesting to see if your trip with your boyfriend is similar or not.

    We must have been at xs the sane night, April 12? We had the same vs happen at with outside vs inside but one of the guards inside let us in for $20 each when I greased his palm. Way too crowded so we got out pretty quick for sushi. Was a good weekend to be in Vegas, great pool weather.

    Yep, April 12! It was ridiculous. But we had fun once we left.

    Nice report. Also a good change of pace, not many on this forum are big clubbers. And I don't think I could have kept up with you or your friend. :evillaugh

    Sounds like a good trip. The best include a little pain, so you did it right.

    Thanks for sharing...
