Hi everyone, Not much of a writer but hope you enjoy! This was a last minute trip so nothing specifically planned. i lived in Las Vegas from 1994-1997, last real visit was 2005, so really looked forward to seeing all the changes. i also planned on visiting old friends and catching up; Took about 7.5 hours to drive there, arrived at La quinta, 6;30 LV time. I know, you are saying Lq, WTH? But i am cheap and i got 2 nights for $16 total. my plan for tonight and Tuesday night is use Hotel Tonite app where I have $25 credit so I expect some kind of deal and it is fun to me to not know where i will be staying until noon deals open up. If you couldn't tell, i am definitely low roller. Gambling- so far all VP and Pai Gow poker. Lost $100 playing Pai Gow at MGM Grand last night, and about $50 playing VP at Hooters. I know, I know silly Hooters but it was fun crowd Saturday night and I had heard about this Pai Gow Poker Commission free game, so had to check that out. anyway, i will write more later, and i hope you enjoy the pics i took last night just walking around. I know i enjoy pics others post even though we have seen these all many times, thought i would return the favor. Hope to meet other VMBers tonight at Margaritaville at 7. wow, just read my own report, sounds so dry but i wish you could hear the excitement in my voice and smile on my face, i am having a blast. thinking of Earl of Sandwhich for lunch but it is hard to decide, so many choices. and of course, the one pic is from where i ate last night, who recognized it?
