    My Trip Report

    I'm driving to Vegas tomorrow!!!! Getting out of Los Angeles very early to avoid traffic, leaving around 5 am and hoping to get there by 9 :)

    I usually go to Vegas every month for a quick 2 night trip, this time is the first time I'm spending a whole week in Vegas! Super excited but also a little worried that it might be too long.

    Staying a Caesars for the first 5 nights (comped), moving to Delano for 2 nights (1 comped) and then trying out the Wynn for the first time for just one night. I got a very good rate of $108 per night on hotwire! Very excited to try the Wynn.

    I'm going solo as usual but will have a couple of friends from L.A. to come out and visit. I don't know if it's worth doing a trip report. Usually my trips are pretty boring by this board standards :) I do a lot of spas and slots.

    This time I'll be diamond for the first time and will have my $100 celebration dinner at Giada's. Also hitting the spas at Caesars, Venetian, and Delano.

    Lots of slots play for sure. I'd like to try the HL slots for the first time and see what happens.

    I just realized there are gonna be a lot of first times on this trip :) I'll try to update, and definitely post pictures in case of a handpay (wishful thinking I know).

    Gonna go finishing packing now :)

    Pick up the SpaWish gift card deal through Groupon...$125 for $200 of gift cards --- you can use these at Qua @ CP and Delano for sure. They come as e-cards so you can get them if you're already in Vegas and it will save you some $$$ :)

    Thank you for your suggestion!!! I made to Vegas. Check in at diamond registration at caesars was a breeze. For upgraded from forum to octavious on the 62nd floor with partial view of bellaggio fountains!!!! Very happy with the room!!! I know people don't like cp on this board but i do!!!! The rooms are very nice and big and the bathrooms with the jacuzzi is second to none!!!!

    Definitely hard to do a live tr and I'm not sure I can use this Tapatalk app :) this was the view at Olives at the bellagio. Lunch on the patio, perfect weather and view and good food. Tuesday night we went to Giada for my diamond celebration dinner. The ambience in the restaurant it's very nice and the tables by the windows have an amazing view! I liked my vegan entree, it was a swiss chard roll with rice and tofu in a tomato sauce. It was very tasty and very good but a little to greasy for my like. My friend who's a chef thought the food was just OK, she's not a big fan of Giada :). My friend (the chef) wanted to try all the nice restaurants so yesterday we went to the county club at the Wynn for lunch. One word to describe the place and the food there: amazing!!!!!!! The have a whole menu for vegetarian/ vegan and being one I really appreciate it!!!!!!! I good the vegan steak salad and it was out of this world good!!!!! My friend liked her food too so this means the food is good. She also feel in love with the Wynn :) [​IMG]. My friend went back to Los Angeles today and another friend is flying in tomorrow for the weekend. I'm very happy to have company but I have to say that i is also nice to have some alone time today :). As far as gambling goes: I didn't win anything yet. Slots are very tight. I only played at cet this first part of the trip and I keep losing :( Staying at Caesars until Saturday morning and then moving to Delano for two nights and Wynn for the final night. Taking a little break in the room now and about to jump in the jacuzzi. More slots tonight. I hope to win something or at least to find a machine that will let me play for a while. Sorry if I made any mistake with this but I'm on my phone and it's my first time using it!
