Hello all .. I've been actively planning a semi-long trip to Vegas for the past couple of months. It's my 3rd trip in and my gf's 1st. We're from Maine, so whenever I go, I try to make it at least a week since I only can make the trip once every 2 or 3 years. Here's what I tentatively have planned thus far .. thoughts/ideas on additions/subtractions? Sat Feb 23 & Sun Feb 24 Arrive Vegas 8:40 PM Don't have a hotel booked for the night, will be taking a taxi to our hotel and checking our luggage until Sunday checkin .. I'm assuming we can do this .. anyone have experience doing this? Probably show my gf parts of the strip including the volcano, fountains, etc for awhile, since again, it's her first time out .. Planning on hitting Ellis Island for the first time. Doing the 7.99 steak special and have some LVA coupons for gambling and drinks. From there, taking a taxi up to Terribles for some low limit gaming. Went there last trip and had a blast. Also a good place to stock up on low priced smokes etc at their gift shop. Thinking about staying there until their breakfast buffet opens. With a B1G1 coupon we can both eat for 4 bucks .. probably chancing food poisoning, but the price can't be beat! lol Then some free time until checkin. We're staying at the Quad (stayed there last time and didn't mind the room, had a strip view 10th floor room .. also, booked 8 nights for 180 bucks with their black friday sale so ...). I see checkin time is 4 PM, I'm hoping we can get an early checkin. What kind of luck will I have with that? 6 PM - After a quick power nap, using $10 off coupons at Spice Market Buffet at PH. 8 PM - Brad Garrett's Comedy Club (2 tix won on MyVegas) 10 PM - Marc Savard's Comedy Hypnosis (2 free passes LVA coupon) Mon Feb 25 Hash House A Go Go for breakfast ($10 coupon from ACG) 2:30 Ceasar's Bacchanal Buffet 7 PM - Jan Rouven's Illusions (Groupon) 8:30 - Riviera Comedy Club (Free show ACG coupon) Tue Feb 26 Noon - $20.13 special at ESTIATORIO MILOS Restaurant @ Cosmo 3:30 - quick bite at Earl of Sandwich at Palms 4 PM - Plan to use Palms 50% off LVA coupon at Tonic Bar 7 PM - picture opp at the Welcome to Vegas sign (I've never been yet) 8 PM - MORE Buffet @ Luxor (MyVegas reward) 9 PM - Rollercoaster @ NY NY (B1G1) 10 PM - Zumanity @ NY NY (MyVegas reward) ... am I cutting the times too close on this night?? Wed Feb 28 Grand Canyon .. which online deal is the best for a bus tour? Thu Feb 29 Entire day downtown (ususally just go for the evening/night but with all the renovations and such, want a whole day down there this time around) 10 AM - Golden Nugget Buffet (B1G1) 5:30 PM - MSS Buffet (B1G1) 7 PM - Mike Hammer Comedy Magic (B1G1) Have tons of gaming and drinking coupons to use throughout the day Fri Mar 1 3:30 PM - Bellagio Buffet (MyVegas Reward) 11 PM - Show In The Sky @ Rio and probably Rio Buffet earlier Rest of this day probably reserving for just exploring the strip and the off-strip properties ie Rio, Gold Coast, Orleans Sat Mar 2 pretty much open Sun Mar 3 9:30 AM - Sterling Brunch (did this last trip out, expensive, but gonna treat my better half) 6 PM - Cravings Buffet @ Mirage (B1G1) 9:30 PM - Absinthe .. have heard nothing but positives on this one and HAVE to see it .. what's the best way to get a deal? Mon Mar 4 11 AM - checkout time (maybe one last bfast at Hash House?) 1:55 PM - depression sets in as my flight takes off Eastbound A few of the shows/etc may be scheduled too close to each other? Think everything is doable? This is a work in progress, and will be fine tuning over the next couple of weeks .. plan on trying the shakes at Holsteins, hitting up Cosmo's Secret Pizza at some point, thinking about trying out the Heart Attack Grill for the experience, but after some of the reviews I've read I'm re-thinking that one .. I'm open to any and all suggestions/ideas, so let me hear them!
