Me and my boyfriend decided go to his high school reunion. We decided make it more about us having fun and partying. Thursday I left work about two o'clock and my boyfriend left got to my house about 3 and end up leaving around 3:45. So we begin our three hour trip to Vegas from SoCal. It was an pretty quick and uneventful drive. Once in Vegas we make our first stop at the M resort for their buffet. The good was pretty normal and forgettable. So much for the best buffet in Vegas those billboards say on the highway. I'm hoping that's because we didn't go on a seafood night. Best part was the included drinks. My bf had wine while I had their house cider. The cider was really good light and a bit fruity, I got a bit of a buzz going. Good thing I didn't get drunk off out because we still had to drive to Aria. We get to Aria about 8:30 and head to the mlife desk to get the first of my myVegas rewards loaded on my card. We head over to the front desk and get a very nice girl. I attempt a $20 sandwich, she takes the twenty and leaves it on the counter. We tell her it's our 5th anniversary(white lie we actually met in February) and she is instantly excited for us. She gushes how she's a sucker for anniversaries, wedding, yada yada yada. She make a couple of calls and tells us we are in the 50th floor room 50105 to signify our event. I am happy, and allow her to keep the twenty. We head to our room and am hit with the realization that I wasn't really upgraded. We were facing the back of the resort. The view was of Vdara, Palms, Rio and part of Cosmo. Not exactly the most fantastic view but it was ok. Me and my bc being to have an romantic moment when there is a knock on the door. I rush to put some pants on and open the door. It was chocolate strawberries and coconut macaroons. I liked the strawberries, even though one of them tasted unripe. I hate coconut texture so only took one bite. After our little moment my bf gets ready for us to go out. I decide to head down and play a bit. I hit a 50 hand .05 poker machine. After a couple of hand I get hit with 4 Aces x 50 for a $400 win. I head up to the room to tell my bf the good news. He is happy and excited to go out. We hit Cosmopolitan just to look around. Then decide to head to the gay nightclub Share. They were doing a promo for $10 all you can drink wells. I jump on it, but my bf prefers absolute to the generic stuff. I was a bit disappointed in share. The go go boys were not attractive and didn't know how to dance. They danced like the go go girls at the big clubs(not attractive). They played hop for the most of our stay and only maybe 20 min of pop/EDM. EDM is one of the reasons I love Vegas so it's a bit of a letdown. Around 2am, we head back to Aria. I play VP for a bit and my bf watches getting drinks from the cocktail waitress. We head up to the room about 3am and go to sleep. Friday I wake up at 8:30 and decide to hit the gym. The Aria gym is very nice and even had spare headphones I had forgotten. After 40min I decided I had enough and head back to the room to take a shower and wake the bf. He is still a sleep when I finish, so I wake him up by opening the shades lol. I call up the front desk to see if any upgrades were available and get the typical were sold out line. So I ask for some kind of comp and get a 25 food and drink credit. It's fine I guess so I give up trying to get an upgrade. I head down and play a bit while my bf gets ready. Hit up some slots and vps to not much luck. The bf is finally ready so we head to the Aria buffet. It's free thanks to myVegas. The food was very standard and didn't impress me much. Best part the giant cocktail shrimp. After we decide to walk the strip to the fashion show mall as I realize I only brought tank tops and it was abit breezy. We stop by bellagio, mirage, and to on the way there just for the fun of it. We buy a couple of thing in mall then decide to head back. We hit up fat Tuesday in the Venetian for a football sized drink. Then continue through Harrah's then to the Quad to explore the renovations. The main floor was nice enough...Then we headed upstairs. Greeted by popcorn ceiling I can tell it's still a shithole. We take a quick view of the buffet and am glad I never used the buffet of buffets passes for that one. I'd rather eat at the Paris one, which I loathe. Good thing they are closing it down. We go into Planet Hollywood for some shopping but don't buy anything. I admire the Britney elevators they had. We get to Aria and I play around abit. I decide to try a table game and decide on three card poker. The dealer informs me I have to play at least $35 to get rated on my mlife card. I lose all of my 100+20. I didn't even get any good hands. I tip the dealer for being so nice and head up to the room so we can go to Caesar for the Baccanal buffet. Had 2 passes for the buffet of buffets thanks to the total rewards credit card and got to bypass the line thanks to my platinum players card. Baccanal was great as always. My bf loved the seafood. He got black chicken soup and told me it reminded him when his dad would bring home chicken from cockfighting in the Philippines. After dinner we cab it to MGM to go to Hakkasan. Bf figures we are there to early, so I play some vp while he gets cocktails. We roll into Hakkasan about 11:30. It wasn't too crowded yet so we get drinks or a sticker shock of $32. We head to the dance floor right next to the DJ booth. We enjoy the music waiting for Steve Aoki, the headliner. He finally comes on at 1:30am. His set was awesome great music through out. He threw 5 cakes into the crowd. I got a partial cake on my shirt. He is the best DJ I've seen with crowd interaction. Head back around 4am.
