Well, we just got back so I'll get this trip report up over the next few days. My wife and I have been married for almost 12 years now and never had a honeymoon. We were too poor when we got married so we just put it off. Well, things have changed and we are now in a much better place so we figured it was time to go to Vegas. The stars and the moon aligned and we were able to get the kids off to church camp, get the dogs into boarding, and then it was wheels up to Las Vegas! We've been planning this trip since about February. I work with a bunch of guys who frequent Vegas and kept hearing "Aria" and "Cosmo", so we ended up picking Aria. We went with a Tower Suite and it was amazing. We ended up on the 51st floor. Our whole stay there was great, the staff was very polite... everyone from the limo driver for the airport shuttle service, to the Tower Suites check-in people, to the maids, bellmen, etc. I wish we could say that we would stay here again, but there are too many other places to stay... what a dilemma! Getting off track... we hit the airport and got our shuttle, got all checked in, and then hit the street. We were starving, so we went to hit Bacchanal Buffet for dinner before doing a little shopping and then going to the Beatles Love at Mirage. We had high expectations for Bacchanal and came away severely disappointed. It was really underwhelming... the food, the service... not sure what happened. We got there about 5:30 and were able to enjoy it for about 30 minutes until the lines started getting longer and longer. Our server was hardly ever around so plates piled up and drinks remained empty. Once we were full, we hit the road and went over to the Forum Shops to browse for a bit. We looked at quite a few shops and couldn't resist blowing some money in Victoria's Secret. Talk about selection! Wife had a great time... wallet did not have a great time. We walked around and looked at more stores. As we walked over to Mirage, we watched some street performers... also a huge disappointment. Some guy claiming to have been on "America's Got Talent" did an 'interactive' dance number... total snooze-fest. We had time to kill before our 9:30 Love show, so we hit a bar in the Mirage. My wife was thirsty so she just got water while I had a Crown and Coke and started smoking it up. I don't smoke, but in Vegas the allure of smoking inside and drinking outside was too much for me to resist. Oh, comfortable shoes go a long ways in Vegas! We then went and saw Love. I'm a huge Beatles fan so I really enjoyed it. My wife thought it was just OK... she enjoyed it but not as much as I did and I don't think either of us enjoyed it enough to justify the $300 we spent for section 206 ( I think that was it) tickets. Oh well, we can cross it off the list now. After that, we were both pretty tired as we were still on Houston time. We walked back to Aria to call it a night. This concludes day 1 of our trip report.
