Just a brief update! Plane landed a little early, yesterday morning at 10am. Turned on my phone and holy Batman. 10 messages about an incident on the LV strip!! Headed to baggage claim, noticed LV Metro was everywhere inside the airport. Hmmm. While at baggage claim began reading the reports and realizing the gravity of the situation. I also realized the CET limo driver was a no show! We got approached at baggage my a free lance limo driver who offered to take all 5 of us to Ballys for $45. Nice score! We stopped for beverages, the drive to ballys took almost 45 mins because the strip was shutdown. Wth? Check in went well. $20 dolla holla got me and my girl a jr suite, and the other two rooms upgraded to north tower. Mentioned the limo not showing and the clerk noticing we had beer offered to send refrigerators to all three rooms to make it right. All good. I will post a full TR at home, but just wanted to offer some thoughts and updates. We had lunch at margarita ville , very good, very expensive !! We casino hopped north strip, quad is looking good! Gambling was up and down. Got hit hardest at TI. I would end up down only about $20 for the day. Hit one 4oak later that night at Ellis island. Bummer of the night. We were all revved up to hit the third Thursday pub crawl downtown, well that got scrapped. The traffic was so snarled around flamingo and koval, it was gridlock. We couldn't even get a cab out of ballys. Cab line was 50 peeps deep and there were no cabs waiting. Bellman said cabs couldn't get to property a d we would be trapped in cab for at least an hour trying to get downtown. We ended up dining at Ellis island which was amazing and hanging out at napoleons piano bar. Up and awake at 730am, more to come! Sorry about the typos, doing this from phone.
