I used to write super detailed and long trip reports but I didn't take notes this time so this is more a collection of random thoughts. Not sure if this format is annoying or not. My apologies if you don’t like it. Maybe I’ve seen too many spaghetti westerns lately. I give you the great, good, bad and sometimes ugly… Day 1 Great: Getting together with my three buddies for non-stop drambling out in LV. Always a fun time. Bad: Getting head....winds on the flight out of Columbus. This turned a 4.5 hour flight into a 5 hour plus flight. Despite cards, booze, movies I was ready to scream. That flight seemed like it would not end. Bad: Booking 3 different comps at the same time to make sure everyone could have their own room and not have to pay too much. This meant I had to check into the Aria, the Cosmopolitan and the Paris after the never ending flight. By the time I did that I was hungry, cranky and tired of hauling stuff around. I swear it took over an hour. Good: One of the guys booked a limo from Presidential which made visiting the liquor store and three places easierand you can't beat a Limo Bad: The driver was new and tried too hard plus he took me to the Cosmo when I wanted the Aria first. First world problems I guess. Still the drivers I've had on other trips were way better. Great: The comped room at the Cosmo. I asked for a view so they upgraded me to a tower suite with a balcony that overlooked the strip, right across from Planet Hollywood. What a view. I loved that balcony. Good: Eating dinner at Ellis Island after the long check-ins. That rib deal they have there is just great. Bad: Waiting for nearly 40 minutes before we got to eat. The place looked deserted but they weren't calling people to sit down. I did have a few good beers in the casino though. Great: Playing three card poker in the party pit at the Paris after dinner. The dancers were pretty hot and the dealers wearing high heels and stockings were nothing to sneeze at either. Plus they don't mess with rules so it was just the same as playing at a boring old table. The dealers were super fun and we had a great time. Drink service was top notch. Did that for many hours. Good: Actually got the "you wannna party look" from an woman obviously working one of the bars at Paris. Never had that happen before. Cracked me up.
