We had a 4 night trip staying at 4 Queens and Suncoast. Nothing too exciting happened gambling wise but I’ve got some photos to share. We stayed pretty even for the first 3 days but suffered on the last day playing VP. We just didn’t get any big wins on VP this time so I don’t have any great photos to share of wins. My husband did have some luck on BJ and craps but overall, it cost us a bit. I’ll post this in 4 sections to keep the photos in the right spot. We flew down on Westjet and were able to read Ken2v’s golf write up in the Westjet magazine. I’m not a golfer but enjoyed the read and photos. What a tough job you have Ken! We left a half hour late but arrived on time, grabbed a cab and asked to go downtown via Paradise, telling the driver we had $35 for the trip. He said he wanted a tip and would do right by us. We got to 4 Queens for $28 so cabby got a $7 tip and we were all happy. (We’ve paid as much as $42 before while being long hauled.) We were given a comped room on the 19th floor so we had a pretty good view. We were able to open the window wide which is unusual but it was nice to have the fresh air blowing in. From our room, we could see the lot behind 4Q where they have taken down the old courthouse. Derek Stevens of The D owns this property now (he payed the minimum offer of 10 million as the only bidder at auction for the lot) and I’ve read they have plans to have outdoor events on this lot for the time being. I imagine they will be planting grass or something. Knowing The D is involved, I’m sure it will turn out nice. This is a little odd but something I found interesting. I’ve looked at the 4 Queens plenty of times while in Vegas but have never really looked closely. I’ve included a shot from our window of the north tower. Anyhow, looking out our window, I was surprised by the type of siding they’ve put on this hotel. Pity the poor guys who had to put all those rocks on the wall. They must have been doing that tedious job for weeks! I can’t imagine how many pounds of rocks they must have hauled up to finish both towers this way. Sure hope the putty retains its holding power or we're liable to see a rock slide at 3rd and Fremont! Our first night, we played VP at 4Q and hubby used his $80 free play. We spent a couple hours at The D where I used some match plays on BJ and hubby used his $50 FP at the Longbar. By the end, we were both about even.
