Hey guys, My lovely companion and I just did two nights, three days stay at MGM. December 13-15, 2013. I tried a different host this time per my friend's recommendation. Right off the bat after a short phone interview, I secured a 1 night up front (12/13) comp and 1 night discounted rate of $105. Secured a reservation dinner at Joel Robuchon with short notice, KA show tickets, and Jabbawockez tickets. Not too bad for a first timer with a new host? We got to MGM around 12:30 pm on Friday. Checked in, no issues.. besides the fact MGM stinks and the front desk service is sort of rude. I'm only going to be staying at Bellagio or Aria now as far as MGM Resorts go.. Went to go eat BURGR at PH for lunch, always a fan of Gordon Ramsay so I wanted to try it. Loved my HOG Burger and Truffle fries. Went back to the room to relax and just drink and nap since she was tired. We got ready to go watch 7:00pm Jabbawockez show at Luxor, but somehow ended up being extremely late and got our tickets changed to 9:30pm showing. 7:30-9pm I just played at some $25 min DD BJ table and ended up winning $300 or so with $75 avg bet, which is really low for myself. My host got us 2nd show seating.. The show was awesome though, it was enjoyable and entertaining. Somehow, we got told to be quiet by one of the Jabbawockez cause she kept cheering really loudly. LOL. Show finished around 11 and then it was time to eat, but didn't know what to eat cause we were so drunk and tired. Ended up going back to MGM and ate at Hakkasan. Food was "ok" and was super overpriced as expected. Charges were billed to the room as my host requested. She went to bed in the morning then I wanted to play some more so I took a good chunk and went down to play at where we're staying.. from 2am to 5am, I was up about $2000, playing $150-200 avg. Don't know who turned on the HOT switch for the dealer, but by 7am I was wiped out completely of $5,500.. I got up from the table and said "Forget it, time to sleep.. I'll deal with it later.." We woke up at 8am, she wanted to go eat breakfast and lunch.. ended up eating only at Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar Palace, it was OK to be honest, 7/10 scale. It can be worth it for $45 a person if I ate more seafood lol. After a good nap, we got ready for our Joel Robuchon dinner at 6pm. Dinner ended being AMAZING. We both loved it the food. It is ultra fancy and quiet, we were whispering for part of the dinner as we didn't want to disturb the one other couple 10 ft away from us, haha. Also I believe I was definitely the youngest adult in the whole restaurant at 22 years old that night. The bill ended up being over $600 for two and got charged to the room. KA show was pretty boring to me, too much talking and not enough people flying through the air, the 3D show at the end as I assumed that was what changed.. was pretty .. I fell asleep three times I would've been upset if I paid $300 for the pair of tickets we got. After dinner I decided to try play at Aria again as I love that place.. Got my marker and tried my luck. FREE BET BLACKJACK is THE Blackjack game to play! $700 win came nice and quick. Took a break to go see how PH is going as I typically do well there also, she didn't like the atmosphere nor the drinks so we ended up back at Aria where I did really well with large (to me) bets. Ended up winning this at the end of a 4 hour stint on the Free Bet table. Had to cash in $2,500 twice by myself and twice by her. Haha. Overall, it was an amazing trip for both her and I. I was rated at $251 avg for 11.5 hours at Blackjack tables. I got the room, dinners (Robuchon, Hakkasan), both show tickets all taken care of. ($1300+ in comps). But I'll never stay at MGM again.. She got to watch whatever show she wanted and I got to gamble! Can't wait to be back to my second home Aria on April 25-27 for my birthday on up-front comp Corner Suite! Have a good night guys and thanks for reading.
