This trip was me and my business partner for the annual International Beauty Show at the Las Vegas convention center. The show was Sat, Sun, and Mon. I stayed for a couple extra nights, but my partner S, went home a day earlier than me. Sat June 21 Up at 5:45 am to make sure I'm packed and have everything I need. We leave the house at 8am to pick up S for our 10:20 flight out of Love field on SWA. My DH always takes us and drops us off. I have to say I'm not feeling that great this morning. We arrive in Vegas right on time and get a taxi to Bally's. I was worried they wouldn't have a room ready for us, or worse, try to put us in a king room. No worries! They had us all taken care of with a Jubilee room with a great view and we could check in right away. The main reason I was worried is because it was EDC weekend. I'm really not sure why the hair show coincides with EDC every year, but I know this year attendance was really down. I noticed it just walking around, and many of the vendors were upset at the turnout. I believe it has a lot to do with EDC causing room rates to skyrocket. Anyway, we get to our room and we have a great view of the tower, fountains, and strip looking south. I was excited to see it lit up at night! It's still only about 1pm and even though we needed to get to the show, I needed a gamble, a drink, and a smoke. S had been practicing DDB VP, so we sit down at the bank of quarter progressives where the royal was over $1200 and begin to play. We'd been there maybe 15 or 20 minutes when I hold the queen of diamonds and lo and behold the rest of the royal fills in!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I was even still playing on freeplay that came with my offer! It was $1236, so I got my second W2G of my life. The slot attendants were there very quickly and I barely had to wait to get paid. I tipped them each $20 and continued to play for a while. After a while we figured we better get to the show, so headed down to the monorail to get our three day passes. Made it to the convention center pretty quick. The show is actually two parts. The hair and nails are upstairs and then there's a whole other show for spa supplies downstairs. We only do hair, but we love to look around at the spa stuff, especially the different skin care lines. We usually buy all of our skin care stuff for the year at this show because you can't beat getting that stuff at wholesale prices. We decided we would spend the first day at the spa show and just look around and take it easy. This was a good call, because after the flight and getting up so early I still didn't feel all that great and wasn't really interested in getting serious and looking at some rather expensive things I had planned to buy for work. We took the monorail to Flamingo because I'd read on Vegaschatter that there would be a temporary Game of Thrones gift shop at Linq and this would be the last day. I finally found it after having to ask the concierge. It was in a portable pods type thing. They didn't have much, but I managed to find one thing for DH, and S found something for her DH. At this point we were starving and overheated. We went to Yardhouse since it was right there. I had a wonderful turkey cobb salad that cooled me off and hit the spot. Back to Ballys. We went upstairs to change and then back down to play. I was very upset when I went to Evening Call (the slushy place) and they had taken out my favorite drink. That's the main reason I stay at Ballys! The guy assured me it was a seasonal thing and it would be back in the fall. We shall see. In the meantime, I just drank Kahlua and cream from the cocktail server. I played mostly Quick Hits and was doing pretty well, bouncing around machines. Tried to go back to VP, and couldn't do anything there. Went over to Paris to visit my Survivor machine, but it was being pretty nasty tonight and not even giving any play. Back to Ballys we go. S decided to find a BJ table and I tried a few more things. I was way up for the day from the royal and doing well on QHs, but I still felt like crap and I was really tired. I was up in the room by about 1. The club music was loud and thumpy, but I sleep with the TV on anyway so I just turned it up until it drowned out the club noise and I was fine.
