Any excuse given will be used to go to Vegas. It just so happened, that D would become that excuse for this past trip over the weekend. Funny thing is that even though it was Scott's idea to go to Vegas, he didn't even end up going. We were in chat, along with Baby Cougar, and decided that Drea needed some cheering up. Sure we all had our own agenda, but it wasn't as if we weren't thinking of D :evillaugh We planned for Halloween weekend, but D was already busy, so we then planned for the weekend before, Oct. 24 – 26. Unfortunately she had to work as well….so given this information, and my not-so-good economical situation, I bailed. Thus the domino effect….Haidy then said no, and so Scott decided he would no longer go. But really? How can I not figure out a way to go to Vegas…I figured I could just convince D to go out after work or something, so I spoke with the BF and reminded him of how he got so drunk that I had to leave to take care of him during S&M, etc. etc. and he said, fine, I will give you $$$! Vegas trip was now a go…well, sort of…I ask Haidy if Bailey can bunk with Billy the Beast, as no way would my mom or sister babysit him again. Luckily, Haidy said yes!! I tell Scott, and since he couldn't find a decent flight, he said no, he was no longer going. Oh well…girls trip it is! I speak to D and she says she will figure something out if I for sure go….so yeah! It is all coming together. Except….OMG, hotel prices are wicked insane!! I have no idea what the hell is going on that weekend, but every freaking hotel room is crazy. Well, what's a poor group of girls to do? Stay in DT! I missed out on a super great deal for GN, but the prices were still much cheaper than the strip, and as I have been wanting to stay there, I booked GN for Friday and Saturday night. I managed to hit the road on Friday around 1p, and even though I caught traffic, I still made it into Vegas within 4 hours It was the oddest feeling not exiting the 15 fwy to head to the strip…I just sadly drove past it and figured my way around DT to get to the GN. They are doing major street work on that area, but I finally arrive at GN. Checked – in and got room 1669, south tower. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was. I asked for it to be near the elevator, as reading reviews, it was the one thing I wanted to avoid…long treks to the room after a late night. The only thing that I thought would bother me is that you could hear the elevator machinery work really loudly, but it didn't, as being drunk when I went to bed both nights help tune out the sound Pic of Room Drea and Haidy planned on staying in the room the weekend, and would be there after work. So I decided to take advantage and start getting ready so people would not complain about how long it takes me to get ready Our plan for Friday was just to bar hop in DT, so we ended up going to Beauty Bar, Griffin's, Bar next to HH/George's Grill, Gold Diggers…and because this wasn't enough, Center Bar at HR. The girls show up, we drink, get ready and head out. Of all the places we ended up going to, I most liked Griffin's and the "nameless" bar! On our way to H&H and "nameless" bar, I see the bright neon sign for "The Red Barn" and say, Let's go there! Yeah, how was I supposed to know that it was a monument type of thing, and not a bar at all Once we got to HR, I got the urge to play, so I headed over to the Roulette table where two of my numbers hit: 9 and 26! The last time I stayed at HR, I received all these coupons, so of course, I was trying to use them that night. 2-4-1 drink at Center Bar, BOGO entrÃ©e at Mr. Lucky's, and I forget the other ones. I got made fun of by the two biatches, but hey…you gotta save money, right? I tried using the Mr. Lucky's coupon on the special, to which they said it wasn't allowed. I'm not sure what it did work on b/c I really cannot recall the conversation, but…I didn't even end up using the coupon I did use the center bar one, and gave away the extra beer, as D was drinking Bud Light the entire night D and Haidy @ Beauty Bar Griffin's The "no bar" bar! The "nameless" bar Good 'ol H&H Center Bar @ HR We finally made it back to our room around 530a, I think, and we all went to bed. Haidy had a car service appointment at 9a Saturday morning, so she only got a couple hours of sleep. Drea on the other hand, well she had no plans, but that was probably because she was sharting all day. She even almost had an accident when we went to ABC to grab water, and medicine for her. Pepto Max, which I guess she should have just opened and drank some right in the store because the next thing I see is Drea's face go completely white and say "I need to get back to the room, now!" I give her the key and she takes off….I can only assume she made it to the bathroom, but who knows. I, on the other hand, played some slots and decided to have some lunch at the cafÃ© in GN. On my way back to the room, I run into Mikey and chit chat for a bit. I find out that both he and Dougie are also staying at the GN, and that he is on his way to Binion's to play some poker. We say goodbye, and I find Drea in bed with the bottle of Pepto and Gatorade next to her. She continued to shart all day as we watched the House marathon on TV. We finally get word from Haidy that she is home and to let her know what our plans are. We couldn't decide, so we just get ready. We decide to cab it over to the strip and head over to the Wynn. As we are waiting for Haidy at Blush, we see Steve Wynn, who's standing right at the entrance. His hair is definitely in competition with that of Donald Trump's hair. That, and he looked drunk, so not sure if he was, but he completely got caught up in the curtains and had to be helped out of them and escorted to the correct entry way. Haidy is still at home, so at that point, we bail on Blush and head over to Lavo. We get free passes on our way there and quickly get in. No line, no waiting, no cover! Great!! We walk up tons of stairs…which is really bad when you are in heels, so I can't even imagine being drunk and in heels…and I immediately get the feeling that this place is gonna suck. It reminds me just way too much of TAO, especially as at the end of the hallway, there is this chick just sitting there looking sexy, really? We walk in, and the place is entirely catering to Bottle Service. We go to the bar to get D some water, because we don't want to risk her sharting, and me a drink. Ughh…why must people just stand at the bar and take up room? :grrrr: After about 15 minutes, I tell D that I'm over it and I want to leave. Well what do you when all else fails….you head over to Carnival Court. Funny thing is that the last time we were there, we were talking major crap about these 2 girls who were way over dressed for CC…well, yeah, we were those 2 girls this time CC was unusually empty. Actually, almost all of Vegas you could tell that there weren't that many people there compared to a year ago. We find a spot to sit at the bar, and we people watch the entire time. Our bartender was Adam from Ohio, who was a total blast. Luck was not on our side, as Josh was not working that night (D hearts Josh). It's ok though, because I met my Vegas Baby Daddy, Richie from Florida, who is just beyond Hot . We have Adam introduce us to Richie, who is even hotter up close, but he is too busy working at another station to chat. Oh well…we keep drinking, and this annoying girl who kept trying to talk to us would just not leave us alone. Finally, after the millionth time she said it was her 21st bday, I tell her that I am going to buy her a drink and to go away. I got her a "blowjob", to which she drank it like a champ, and took off on her merry way! D @ CC We said good night to Adam and Richie, and even though I left disappointed (as I hand delivered yet another bartender to D), we still had a good time. Took a cab back to GN as Haidy bailed out on us because she was "too" tired…pshh, whatever! We get to the room and go to sleep. Sunday morning, time for me to leave, but not before having Brunch with Haidy (who actually kept her promise of showing up before I left) and D. We ate, said our goodbyes, and it was time for me to head back home. All in all, it was a great weekend, and some of the best one-liners came out of this weekend! Can't wait until December!
