    My Trip Report

    I gots the banana chip bitches!!!

    7 nights in Vegas, I’ve tried to keep this as short as possible but 7 nights in Vegas is a long time.

    Wednesday
    Get to airport to get checked in, Allegiant Airlines direct to Vegas, had to pay $25 for my suitcase being over the limit, ouch, next I set off the alarm and have to get the private inspection, finally on our flight. Arrive in Vegas a few minutes late where we meet Ted Maasch from Presidential Limo. He was a super nice guy and a lot of fun. We (my two sisters and I) get in the limo where we get roses and he pops the cork on the champagne. We head to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign for a photo and a then a leisurely ride down the stip finally arriving at our home for the next 4 nights, Mirage. And by the way, the moon roof would not open.

    We get checked in with no problems, room 11-089 overlooking the pool. Headed to the pool for awhile and then it was time for the first of many spa appointments. I chose to go to the TI spa. I got some fun fake eyelashes and a Body Polish. Back to the room to meet up with my girlfriend Cyndy who took a different flight. A little later we met up with Mikey at the Ava bar. It was a great reunion.

    We tried to talk him into going to Tangerine club with us, but he would have no part of it. Back to our room to change where I found a nice bottle of Captain Morgan Silver as a birfday gift from our own Eric/Jack 21, what a sweetie. I had made arrangements with Vegas Host Bill for a private table and bottle service. We arrived at the club about midnight. Got our picture taken for Napkin Nights, had glasses of Dom Perignon and Cristal. By 2:30 they came and took my half empty bottle of Captain Morgan and escorted us out. The security guard said I was stumbling. Excuse me, I was not and even if I was what do you except when people are sitting around drinking a $330 bottle of Captain Morgan.

    So we left, called Mikey where I get the “I told you not to go†and started walking back to Mirage. Along the way I asked a guy for a cigarette (they were from Greece). I didn’t know in Greece if you ask a man for a cigarette it’s really code for “will you go to bed with me� OK, calling Mikey again to get rid of these freaks. Finally in our room to sleep.

    Thursday
    Up and off to the pool where we had lunch at the little café. It was yummy as always. That evening some of the T2V gang came up to my room and we cracked open the bottle Eric had sent and finished it off. It was a good time with Ron, Bill, Mikey and Tennessee Cyndi. Cyndi presented Ron and I with some birfday gifts. She’s such a sweetie.

    We had a great time and then we were off to Carnival Court to meet up with some others, Becky, Jer, Terry and his friend the golf Nazi. Here is where I found out who my surprise guest was. Sin!!!!! Yeah!!!! Only problem was she was already up in the room getting sick so I had to wait until Friday night to meet her. We played some blackjack and danced. At one point I almost had the entire place up on their feet dancing. Or at least that’s what it seemed like. What a blast!!

    Friday
    Some quality pool time again and then off to the spa for a little facial and some more eyelashes. Later we head downtown to MSS for an official T2V get together. I get there to find another surprise….Doc Al and Mrs. Al. Guess he decided he didn’t want to get all those drunken phone calls. Ron and I received more gifts. We had many drinks and then it was off to ride the grain train and have some fun downtown. Another night full of fun and friends.

    Saturday
    A little pool time again and then a quick trip over to the spa to see my friend Cynthia so I could get some more eyelashes. This time she snuck me in and out for free!! Happy Birthday to me. Today my girlfriend Cyndy is leaving so we spend some time together and say our goodbyes. I am now ready to settle up on my bet with Vegas Jer. He comes over to pick me up and we cab it over to Rio where we eat at Buzio’s Seafood Restaurant where we dine on shrimp cocktails and lobster. It was a great meal and quite affordable too.

    [​IMG]

    Then we were off to meet up with the rest of the gang at Bamboleo bar. We had some drinks and a lot of laughs. Our favorite bartender was working. Did anyone mention that she remembered us? Not sure if that’s a good think or not. Following my usual tradition, I had like no cash on me so I borrowed $300 from Ron. We then headed up to Voodoo Lounge where we had more drinks and fun. Somewhere along the way I lost my purse. I thought Ron was gonna have a heart attach!! No worries, Ron, we found it, with the $300 still safely tucked inside.

    I don’t know what time it was we left, but everyone split up in different directions. My sisters and I loaded up in the ghetto sled along with Ten Cyndi. I had clearly had enough to drink so Mikey dropped us off at the Mirage. Along the way we were passing the Ava bar where they had this great band playing so we just had to stop for some more drinks and a bit more dancing. We closed the place down and then it was off for some sleepy time.

    Sunday
    Today my sisters are leaving and I am changing hotels. I got a great offer a couple weeks ago for Venetian so I decided to treat myself for the last 3 nights. Mikey loaded up my sisters luggage in his car and the 3 of us decided to hoof it over to Venetian with all my luggage. We must have looked like the 3 stooges crossing the Strip with all my crap not the mention this huge bouquet of roses my hubby had sent me. It took us awhile, but we made it. There was this weaving line of people waiting to check in so I walked over to another desk where no one was in line and innocently asked where check in was. The young lady informed me it was the huge line I had already seen then she looked at my and said she could check me in. Score!!! I ended up with room 17-226. Not a great view, but at night I would sit on the floor looking out the window with a drink in my hand and watch the planes landing. After gawking at the room for awhile we decided to go and play some slots before my sisters had to leave. At 2:15 it was time for them to leave and time for me to head to the spa again. Today I got the royal treatment, Heated Desert Stone Massage (unbelievable), Chocolate Decadence Wrap, facial and at the last minute I added on an eye treatment. After four days of wearing false eyelashes my eyelids were really a mess from the glue. I wouldn’t probably do that again. Needless to say by the time I left it was dark out. Headed back to Venetian and met up with Mikey. I was way tired by then and so was Mikey so we decided to call it a night and he headed out.

    Monday
    Mikey shows up and we decide to give the pool a try. OK pool, nothing like Mirage, but very crowded. We lounge around and have some drinks. Mikey has to work tonight so we head up to the room and decide to order room service. I have to say it wasn’t cheap, but our food was fabulous. We had the coconut shrimp as an appetizer, these things were to die for. I had a turkey wrap with onion rings and Mikey had the Teriyaki chicken sandwich with potato salad. We both got 2 cokes which put our total bill at $80.97 but it was well worth it. After dinner Mikey headed off for work, I just kinda lounged around looking at the planes landing.

    [​IMG]

    About 9:30 I decided to head out on my own for a little while. Went to Mirage, just feels like home….played a little vp at the bar then decided to go to Harrahs and find my favorite Wheel of Fortune machine. I couldn’t find it but while passing the high limits room I decided to stop and put a hundy in a $5 machine. After about 5 spins I get a 5times symbol and 2 bars……wooohoooo, I gots the banana chip, bitches!! Wouldn’t you know it, I am all alone and no camera. Who cares, I cash in and get all those crisp $100s. After that, I figure it’s time to go back to the room so I take my hundies and leave.

    Tuesday
    Mikey calls and says he doesn’t have to work today so he comes over and and we hit the pool again for some more souvenir glasses.

    Later we head out for a day/night of drinking and gambling. We go to the Tuscany, play some craps and blackjack, nothing to brag about so we cab it over to the Paris where we have decided to try out Ortanique, the Caribbean restaurant. What a great place. We sat at the bar and had some drinks and then to our table. I can’t remember everything we had but we started out with 2 appetizers, some crab cakes and some kind of California rolls or something like that. I don’t eat out a lot so I’m not real familiar with all this stuff, besides we had quite a few drinks. We both got some kind of fish, I had crab stuffed salmon and Mikey had another kind of fish. I’m not sure if I liked mine or Mikeys more, but it was outta this world. Definitely the best meal I have ever had and Mikey agreed. You need to go try this place, it is excellent.

    [​IMG]


    After dinner we headed to IP for some $5 blackjack. We had a blast, except for when these 3 hot chicks kept hitting on Mikey. For a few minutes there I honestly thought he was gonna split with them and leave me at the table all by myself.

    Mikey and his Bitches!!!

    After a long day of boozing, eating and gambling we decide we’ve had enough but when we get to my room we decide we need to have some more of those yummy coconut shrimp so we order room service again, coconut shrimp and egg rolls. After totally stuffing our faces it is time to crash.

    Wednesday
    I’m going home today but first Mikey takes me to Peppermill for some brunch. We sit in the lounge, what a cool place and after 7 days I finally find a place that serves dreamsicles. That was the best drink all week. We get a table and Mikey orders eggs benedict and I have an asparagus omlet. Everything was excellent. After eating we head over to the UNLV Internet café for a couple hours. We are laughing our asses of at the pictures already posted. What a great time!! I head to the airport where I check my 75lb suitcase with the skycap who was so nice. He said he could get around the extra charge for me to I tipped him $10 and was on my way.

    This was the best birfday ever!!! I got to do and see a lot of things I’ve always wanted to.

    Disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible for any incorrect info, I was there, I just don’t totally remember everything clearly.

    Geez, did you birfday people leave any $$$ out there for the rest of us?? Seriously, glad you enjoyed the group time AND the alone time. And $330 for 1/2 a bottle of the Captain at a club don't touch a free bottle in the room, not even close ;).

    As for Mikey, nothing personal Angy but leaving with three ladies would not necessarily have been a snub on you... :haha:

    Cheers...see ya in 5 months (How about 60 days??)

    Seems to me like it was a helluva birfday bash. Nice job laying claim to the famous "banana chip bitches!" Congrats!

    Room service can be expensive...but can also be so worth it.

    Ortanique, huh. Have to look into that.

    World of Concrete is the middle of Jan--I think it starts the 17 or 18th--I know I booked our trip to avoid it--we're going in between CES and WOC--our trade show is usually a couple weeks ago WOC (many of the same people show at both) and I keep saying I want to go....ESPECIALLY if I could go to a show in Vegas:thumbsup:

    "That's why World of Concrete 2005 is the place you want to be Jan. 18-21."

    Had to look it up. And now I'm not happy because that doesn't correspond with my payroll schedule and I'm not going to be able to party with Miss Angy again until March. :cry:

    Hoya, what are your Jan dates again? I got an offer that's pretty good and still have free tickets to fly there, so I'm looking at a possible January date.

    Angy - - You are too hilarious girl! I had the most fun I have had in a long time, thanks to your awesome birthday bash!! You had me laughing all the time. I sincerely cannot wait until we get together again. Many thanks to your wonderful sisters who watched over me as I totally derailed off the grain train at the El Cortez...whew....that was rough! Next time we definitely HAVE to do karaoke (sp) - - with Mikey volunteering to sing "I touch myself" by the devinyals....should be quite a show. Happy Birthday again....you ARE the Birthday Queen!

    Becky--we're going to be in town Jan 8-13 (sister will be there Jan 9-12) I was bummed to miss Angy too!!!

    Cyndi--back in college, one thing the seniors do is a cabaret/parody presentation--my junior year, a few women (& guys:thumbsup: ) dressed up in french maid's uniforms and sang "I dust my shelf" Anytime I hear that song now, I think of those words. So thanks! I just got an image of Mikey in a french maid's uniform.....

    Hoya, there's a remote possibility I might be there during some of those dates. I'm sure you'll be busy, but maybe there'd be time to meet up for a drink or two somewhere. I'll let you know!
