    My Trip Report

    not doing a full report as I was there 8 nights but here are some of my highlights

    I had a great trip even though it started off bumpy as I was originally booked on Jets NO go as I now like to call them. I went on this trip as I had an airline credit and some free rooms that I need to use or loose. Well I lost the great airfare due to the bankruptcy of the airline & it took me 6 hours to find another flight but it was worth it in the end. As I got to spend some quality time with some very special people.
    *************************************************
    Surprising my friend Diceinhand from Chicago who didn't know I was coming into town.

    Seeing a very special friend Slotlover from Washington State & a good buddie Grumpy from California.

    A night on the town with 2 of the nicest gentlemen I have had the pleasure of meeting. Bossco & MyCarDick. It was alot of fun. I will never be able to watch Jaws the same way again...lol

    Having a friend win 10 thousand $$ in a slot tourny. Then taking all of us to the Great Moments Restaruant to Celebrate.

    Seeing my good friend take 11 thousand tax free $$ back home with her.

    Another was up 6 - 800 when I left for the airport.

    The meet at The 4 Queens in the Chicago Brewery. Seeing some old friends and making some new ones.

    As always going to see My Elvis @ the Fitz

    The suite upgrade at MSS.

    The LVC allowing me to check in at 11 am and out at 9 pm.

    WE cramped alot of things into this trip and I captured alot of it in my pictures. Some not ;) [​IMG]

    And on a personal bases: Having dinner with Mr. Barrick @ The Centre Stage Restaraunt in the Plaza Hotel. This is one amazing man. He is so down to earth and so very very nice. We swapped stories for about 3 hours. Definately something to add to my book of memories.

    Also being told that it looks like I earned my next stay. I actually graduated to the $10.00 tables the last couple of days of my trip. Seems it made the local news.......lol.

    Oh crap! Here I was returning from Vegas the night Jets NO GO went under and my heart bled for the other Canadians who's Vegas jaunts were ruined.

    So glad you made it and had a wonderful time!

    I have talked to Mr. Barrick on two occasions and I agree with you 100%. His employee’s seem to like him as well.

    Great pics, Patti. Looks like you guys had a blast! Glad the flight situation worked out--that could've been a big problem.

    Great times! Great pics. I'll have to remember to take a camera with me on my upcoming trip.

    One question, one of the pics shows a "cigarette ticket". What is that?

    If you like chocolate, you might consider a side trip to the Ethel M factory next time. Self paced factory tour, free sample at the end, and truly outstanding icecream.

    If it's the chocolate I'm thinking of, it's the chocolate fountain at the new patisserie in the Bellagio Spa Tower.....
