    My Trip Report

    Was going to try to do a live report, then I hit Vegas...and.....drunk right away. So here is the belated TR!

    [​IMG]

    So actually I was drunk before we even got there, had a bunch of Southwest vouchers to use, 16 total between 4 of us, for a 1 hour flight. So we each got through a 2-3 drinks each...at 7am.

    [​IMG]

    Arrived in Vegas 8:30, in the taxi by 9, and at the Mirage hotel checking in at 9:30. I had reserved a 1 bedroom tower suite from MyVegas reward, but kept with tradition and did the $20 trick. UPGRADE! PENTHOUSE! TOP FLOOR! STRIP VIEW! What an amazing room, the only thing wrong was a crack in the window, BUT WHO CARES! It was seriously the best room I have stayed in. We had 4 people in the room, 2 slept on the two couchs pushed together and said it was super comfortable even though it was couches.

    Now I don't remember all the specifics but Day 1 started at the pool. I soon got bored and went to play. I had made a deal with myself I really wanted to play some video poker, so went into the Mirage game area, sat down at the bar and got fed some drinks while playing. I played quite a bit over the couple of days and had some good hits like:

    Ended up going across the street to the Imperial Palace and repeated the same thing. Got up a few dollars, got more drinks, so I decided craps was where I was going. Lost a hundred, pretty quick. Moved over to BJ where my buddy was killin it, lost. Moved to three card poker, won all my money back, but stayed thinking I would win and lost it all to the casino. Oh well, just a couple hundred and I was pretty sauced so nothing was bringing me down.

    Went outside for some air and found this guy!

    He had the deepest voice ever and just kept talking about the bar and some other stuff. He was awesome!

    Back to the Mirage and up to the room to meet the girls and get some more refreshments. I love my Ciroc when I drink, can get rid of it like water as long as it is super cold and on the rocks.

    Kept gambling the rest of the day at various casinos with no real big hits.

    Day 2 wake up pretty late, back to the pool to hang out! Stayed for maybe an hour and got bored, back to gambling!


    Later on my girlfriend and I roamed over to a place in Ceasar's Palace, Max Brenner, based on Yelp reviews to have some lunch and it was happy hour! Got some sliders that were ok, but the fries, and finger foods were great! She also got a chocolate Martini, which I am alergic to chocolate and could not try, which she raved about. I stuck with a lemon drop that was good. Would go back!

    Gambled a little, but ended up back at the room where she took a nap and me and my buddy went out. I had some groupons for jello shots and big margaritas which we used. Jello shots weren't worth it, but Moonshine flavor drink was!

    Feeling some of the affects in that picture!

    We didn't play much, just hung out on the strip walking around. Back to the room to meet the girls who woke up and back to the Venetian! I really like the bathroom doors for some reason, so here is a picture

    [​IMG]

    Walking outside again when we pass Bills and I noticed there was no wall (weird how I did not see it the first pass on the way to Planet Hollywood).

    [​IMG]

    Safe to say, it was shut down.

    We kept walking and eventually made it to MGM where my girl and I split $100 on the Lion's Share, but only hit once or twice for $15 so the money went fast!

    [​IMG]

    Went back and changed again, and out to gamble!

    I was having pretty good luck at the Venetian video poker so I kept moving up but went down to $175 from the pic above with no hits so I took the money and left.

    Ended up down for the trip about half my bankroll, but had a great time and came back with some of my cash still intact. Ready for my next trip!

    Sounds like you had a great time. Hate to see all the dives being shut down. Always enjoyed hitting Bill's in the afternoon and catching Big Elvis.

    Read your report sitting on the terrace at Cosmo. Very nice suite at Mirage; too bad that award isn't offered now. I wish I'd booked while that was available. Glad you were able to take advantage of that reward. I really enjoyed your photos. Ok, time for a strip walk.
