    My Trip Report

    So I did a whirlwind of a trip last weekend and I'll review some highlights. It was a weekend full of surprises and favorites and I will share with you about some of the fun things I did.

    I had a really nice room at the Mirage, and I enjoyed it so much! I do wish the property had more dining options, but I did enjoy a good burger from BLT and a cool drink with dry ice at Stack. The hot rock steak app was fun at Stack as well. I wish I would've packed a dress so I could've gone somewhere a little nicer, but I knew it was a short trip.

    I also tried out Javier's at Aria. I have to say, I thought it was pretty great. I thought the margaritas were even better. I wish I would've had one more! I know a lot of people have been underwhelmed, but it was a nice lunch spot for the day.

    I did really lousy gambling, and because of that I decided to go see Love. It was my first Cirque show, and I thought it was pretty cool. I'm not sure how I'd have felt if I didn't know all the music. But I did enjoy it a whole lot and I was glad I stepped away from the casino to do that.

    The mirage spa was okay, but I would return if I could see the amazing massage therapist I saw for my deep tissue massage. WOW. I didn't know my back could make so many noises.

    I also got to visit my pal UKFanatic and FINALLY meet the awesome Natedogg and his chum Dr. J. These guys are hilarious and the milkshakes were a top notch call, Nate!

    I did some shopping (hey, I am a girl) and I found a few things, but I didn't really need the sales clerk to share with me she couldn't wear cotton panties because she gets yeast infections. How am I supposed to respond to that? I just said "Oh....that's interesting!"

    45 hours just really isn't enough time to get in the comfy Vegas groove, and I had some really hideous flights, so I set myself up for failure. The excessive day drinking also had me upstairs on the couch for several hours. I also would pay money so I didn't have to be at the airport at 4AM next time either. I think my minimum is 48 hours!

    I'm definitely going to start canvassing clerks about the panty situation.

    Nice summary, Ms. New Orleans.

    Any trip to Las Vegas, regardless of length, yields great (and unpredictable) memories.

    Thanks!

    Another panty question to add to the list.

    Nice.

    If I were you I think I would have gone even more TMI to put her in her place, something like "My chest always peels after a good pool party pearl necklace" would seem appropriate.

    Awesome TR! Well, at least except for the weird panty disclosure. Who says stuff like that???

    Glad you enjoyed Javier's. We had lunch there in October and found the tequila selection (and margaritas) very good, and the food okay. And our waiter was hot ;)

    Cashing in your Frontier miles?

    To bad you couldnt stay longer,sorry to hear you lost.I think all segments involving panty or thong shopping should at least include photos. Much more intellectually stimulating than someone hitting 4 aces or what they had for supper ,dont you guys agree?

    Ohhhh, we almost went to Javiers last weekend. We did JS instead (new stuff on the menu, but still good), but I want to try Javiers next time I am in that neighborhood.

    It was great to see you! Next time I think we should get drunk and walk through holstein's teeling people "I drank your milkshake!" in There Will be Blood style!

    Yikes…that is entirely TMI! Evidently some folks were not born with that filter that lets us know that not everything needs to be said out loud.

    Sounds like a fun – if a bit painful (<48 hours AND a 4am arrival at the airport?!) – trip. Thanks for the report. :beer:

    Hahah! Great whirlwind trip.

    Am I the only one slightly turned on by the panty comment?

    Santé,

    Yuck on the sales clerk's story. She's so TMI.

    Thank you for sharing the quickie TR sounds like you had a great short trip.
