Well we survived Circus Circus. I have always wanted to go to Vegas around the holidays. Nice tree in the lobby except for the creepy clown. We got a great deal on Frontier Airlines non stop flights with good times. Frontier check in desk was a little hectic in Cleveland, but TSA was quick. The plane boarded quickly and we pushed off 10 minutes early. Happy times. My wife Kathy and me on plane. Great flight with very little turbulence. Arrived early in Vegas around 4 P.M. Still some daylight left. Went with EZ car rental this trip. Great rate of $75 tax title out the door from Tuesday to Saturday. Short line and no high pressure sales pitch. Got a Nissan Versa with only 5900 miles on it. Easy check in at Circus Circus. Very few kids mid week. Got a room on the 33rd floor in the West Tower. Great view of the mountains toward Red Rock. $21.60 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and a whopping $35.20 for Friday. A daily resort fee of $14.50 per day (tax inclusive) will be added to the guest room account and includes the following amenities per booked room: two (2) complimentary K- cups for a Keurig coffee maker, free in-room wireless high-speed Internet service, $5 off an unlimited wristband at The Adventuredome, 2 for 1 Coaster pass, free chips and salsa at Blue Iguana with $8 minimum purchase valid for one visit, two (2) free Midway games, buy one (1) get one (1) free drink at West Casino or Slots A Fun bar (or a $5 credit toward other beverage purchase), two (2) Fitness Room passes valid each day of your stay for up to two (2) people, complimentary printing of your boarding pass at the mail and info desk in the hotel lobby, and free local and 800-number calls up to 30 minutes. Management reserves all rights. Nice king size bed View of the mountains And a view of the Manor Suites. The cheapest rooms on the strip. I had to get these pics of workers cleaning the roof of the Adventure Dome. They got balls. Some more pics of the room. I can't complain. It was clean and cheap. Lots of festive decorations in the casinos. Of course The Bellagio display is awesome. We took a pic inside the snow tunnel. Sam's Town does up their atrium pretty nice. The Venetian and Palazzo have a great display with snow peacocks. Fremont Street has a huge tree. Still construction on Main Street. Gambling wise I have done worse but also much better. Kathy was up about $100 for the trip. She kept us afloat. She got aces with kicker twice and 4 deuces playing deuces wild once. I forgot to get a pick of the deuces. We were at The Max, former Westin on Flamingo and Koval. It was a fluke that we stopped in but the traffic was really bad on Koval Friday around rush hour. We decided to pull in and gamble a little hoping the traffic would subside. They had $3 black jack. The table was empty so we played for quite a while to our surprise without getting our clocks cleaned. I cashed out up $50 and Kathy was up $20. The dealers were very nice and we probably played twenty for them along the way as we were winning. We then proceeded to play VP and Kathy hit her deuces for $50. We just kind of sat there glad to be winning for once and I forgot to get a pic. By the time we left the traffic let up and we just thanked the karma that led us to The Max. We met Breanna from the board briefly before she went to the Illusions show at The Trop. So glad we got to see you if only for a few minutes. I'm going to wrap this up for now and will continue later.
