It's been a long 10 months since our last trip out there, which turned into a nightmare of a time and the worst trip I have EVER had to Vegas in over 15 trips. Long story short, gf and I were assaulted @ the Flamingo on our last trip in their elevators. Their elevators do not have cameras in them. Hotel security wasn't much help, Metro wasn't much help since no video evidence in the elevators, our word against theirs...which is understandable, I know how all that works. It would of turned into a huge hassle to proceed in filing criminal charges, especially since those a$$wipes were from out of the area. That incident left a bad taste in my mouth with the Flamingo. It went from being one of my favorite spots, just based on location and pool, to a spot I wouldn't want to stay at again. So that was a recap on our last nightmare of a trip. All the bad feelings have dissipated and its time to start planning a new trip. This trip has been *official* for about 2 weeks now. It has already seen numerous changes on trip dates and hotels and I believe we have it hammered out now on where we will be staying based on strip location, comped rooms, pools. Originally we were going to use a comp 2 night offer at Cosmopolitan for Sun Mon and have Rio for Mon thru check out Friday and fly home. Things changed. As much as I love Cosmopolitan, this will be a relaxing semi low rolling trip and would hate to burn my Cosmo offers, especially when I have a "Bro trip" coming up in the fall. I really wanted to get MGM to have access to their pools and lazy river but found a better room offer at Mandalay Bay, which I've never stayed at. We will be arriving in Las Vegas Sun May 29th around 0830. This will be after I work a 7pm-3am shift Saturday night Ohio time. I'm hoping to last all day, but we will see how that goes. . . Day 1 will consist of relaxing at MB's pool.
