    My Trip Report

    As some of you may know, I went to Las Vegas this past weekend and stayed at my favorite hotel...the Wynn!

    As my addiction to this site is continually growing, I found myself saying hi & bye to a few members here on the board before I left :) Finally logged off, because I had yet to shower, pack and meet up with a buddy for drinks (what can I say? I like to get started early!) :drunk:

    Was supposed to pick up the SOFRN (Significant Other For Right Now) @ 8:30a, but didn't make it until 9:15a as I was suffering a major hangover :cry: Decided to stop by the alma mater to buy a new sweatshirt (the one I currently have should be retired). Nice to see changes throughout the campus. Finally hit the road at 10a.

    Interesting drive…knocked out before Victorville & woke up to thundering rain in Death Valley (Yes, I’m like a baby…put me in a moving vehicle and I go to sleep!) Stopped at Primm to stretch, grab a snack and do a little bit of shopping. Noticed the “Terrible’s†sign and thought, “When the hell did this happened?†:confused2: Talk about being oblivious to certain things just because you are so focused on getting to LV. Oh well…

    Finally arrived at the hotel, checked in and was asked about my “request.†From my experience, the odd room # at the Wynn are those that face the strip, well seeing as how I like a view of the strip, my request was for an odd room number. I explained the reason for my request, and aside from this look he gave me, he said that this was now his new #1 weirdest request he has ever seen….oh yeah, I aim to please!! :)

    Hang out in the room, take a nap, and its time for us to head out to the Price is Right at Bally’s. It was super cheesy, but loads of fun and I would definitely do it again, especially with a group.
    ~Moment: me thinking I was called to go down, getting up/ pushing my way through the row, only for SOFRN to grab my arm and tell me, no, you just won 1000 Total Reward points…boy did I feel like a dumbass :blah:

    SOFRN and I waiting in line for the Price Is Right!

    As we left Bally’s, decided to go grab some in-n-out and eat in the room. Ate, got dressed and headed out to meet my friend Haidy, who you previously met in my last TR! Went to Diablo’s, a new bar at the Monte Carlo, which, for a rainy night, was super packed with a great mix of people….awesome margaritas, and one of the most eclectic music mixes I have heard in a while! At about 1a, head over to the VooDoo lounge, grabbed a couple of “Witch Doctors†and enjoyed the rest of the night.
    ~Moment: SOFRN pretending to slap some ass in mid-air…..I should mention SOFRN is very much an introvert, reserved, quiet almost mute, type of person! So to see him doing this was classic! :evillaugh

    Haidy and I sharing a great drink!

    Saturday is what I like to call a day of leisure. All we really did was eat and enjoy the sun! It was probably one of the most beautiful days Vegas has ever seen. Had early dinner reservations at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, where the food was great, but the Banana Cream pie was to die for. Sure I had to fight for my slice because I made sure to leave room for it, but the bites that I had were great! Would definitely go there again! After that headed to Paris to see the producers, where not only did I fall in front of everyone, it took me, for what like felt forever, to finally get up and regain my balance. Stupid cobble stone floors….why oh why would anyone want to put that type of flooring in a casino with a bunch of drunk people, and drunk people with heels?! :cuss: Oh well….had a drink and got over it!
    ~Moment: Seeing all those damn hockey fans at the MGM, and most were from LA…made us look like a bunch of hillbillies a la Shock! :blowkiss:

    All in all, it was a great weekend filled with both partying and much needed R&R!

    Sin – hope you enjoyed the pic seeing as how I was in Vegas and you weren’t…LOL :Þ
    Shock – thanks for the advice about Sin.
    Drea – I owe you a drink….:beer:

    Hope you enjoyed this TR. Next one….NSF!!!

    SOFRN... I love it!

    Thanks for sharing. Glad you you had a great trip. Congrats on the reward credits.

    Don't feel bad about falling, I don't even need cobble stone floors or alcohol to do that trick. Sometimes I'll just be walking along and my ankle will just give out on me. Maybe some of you will get to see that "trick".

    I noted in my trip report from NSF 2006 that cobblestones in heels is a bitch. At least I didn't fall down.

    Thanks for the pic of the Witch Doctor! I was trying to dig up one I have of that to show a friend who's coming out next week, and now I don't have to!

    Saturday was definitely a GREAT day in Vegas. Sunday morning (albeit at 8AM) was BEAUTIFUL as we walked by the Tower Suites pool on our way to leave... :(

    Whooohoooo!!

    Young and drunk in Vegas and not afraid to tell about it. :ssst:
    Reading reports like yours makes me wish I had visited Vegas in my youth!
    I'll be staying at the WYNN in a couple of weeks and you have added to the anticipation.
    Glad to hear about the fun.

    I was there, minus the Kings jersey. L.A. did win in a shootout.

    BTW, Kings fans were acting like Raiders fans, which is why I don't don a Kings jersey. I've been a fan of the game for 28 years and have never seen a bunch of idiots like this before. Make me ashamed to be a Kings fan.
