    My Trip Report

    Me, the GF, and my parents flew out of Lincoln Nebraska via Allegiant Air on June 17th

    My Parents stayed downtown at The Vegas Club, and came up on Tuesday the 19th)

    Hotels
    MGM signature
    June 17-19, We stayed in Tower #1,the place is awesome!!, Check in and check out was a breeze, maybe 5 minutes but that was talking to the guy about the hotel, and what not, only problem was that i forgot about housekeeping, and they have doorbells and it scared the crap out of me on that first day at 8:30 in the morn.....the Walk from the room to the casino was not really a problem to us, and knew going in that it wasn't right near the action


    Planet Hollywood
    June 19th-21st
    Room was awesome but nothing like the signature but had its uniqueness with the Hollywood prop touch(cant remember right now who the memorabilia was from)


    room wasn't ready, so dropped bags off with bell hop, and hung out with the parents who came up from downtown for the day


    Gambling-pretty much won 75 dollars at MGM Grand, the first day we got there on the WoF Big Wheel, then later that night i won 120 on Jungles are Wild or something like that penny slot

    other then that i pretty much gave it back on food, other gambling throughout town, or shows


    Shows-this year we didn't buy any tickets in advance and just hit up the Half Price ticket outlet at the Coke Bottle

    Carrot Top (2nd time in a year!) was awesome again, last year we were center 2nd row, this time we in Row G center, so it was a different view, but we got a little wet this time around!, Charlie Vinacola opened up for him, and we both agreed, in the time alloted... he was pretty hilarious with his Planet Charlie act

    The Variety Show at Planet Hollywood- pretty decent show, host was hilarious(fast wally, a juggler), Seats are first come first serve, the first seats we got were horrible, and then they moved us from the back of the theatre to the Center with a better view...so that was awesome....i'd watch it again, if they guarenteed me different acts


    Food
    Showcase Mall Food Court
    Del Taco, and Wendys
    Studio Cafe-Delicious!!!, a little pricey....but id go to it again
    Spice Market Buffet-the buffet is nice and all, but i really don't eat a whole lot of variety and the stuff they had wasn't a big thriller to me....but then again when im at home i eat like a pig, but once i go on vacation....what i usually eat at home will feel me up fast on vacation...kinda makes me made(theme the whole trip....ordered stuff i could eat any given day, to be full half way through)
    Tacone Flavor Grill in the Miracle Mile Shops.....Awesome Grilled Cheeseburger Sandwich


    All in all, it was fun..i was on vacation, and it was hot :)


    here is some pictures, Enjoy

    Hey Ice!! Sure sounds like you and Lindsay had a great time! Enjoyed the report and the photos. It's nice to see some photos of the Signature...that bed looks really comfy and the rooms look just as nice as the photos on their website, which isn't always the case.

    Thanks! :)

    Nice report. Thanks for the pix. It's the only thing that keeps me going until I can get back. Man, the suite at MGM looks amazing!
