    My Trip Report

    Second time staying at the Mirage, first at least ten years ago. Line at check in went fast, not too bad, lovely lady who granted our request for the 25th floor, and with the help of the $20 trick, got a room on the 25th floor, which has its own elevator bank of two elevators for just the 24th and 25 floors. Room was okay, not great, strip view, but no comparison to bellagio, or Mandalay Bay or venetian but two nights were comped and the other three we paid about $470, so not bad for five nights total.

    Ate at Stack at Mirage, excellent, pre theater special 5-6pm for $42 per person. Well worth it. Also ate at Delmonicos which was very good but it should be for $250, four glasses of wine, two appetizers, two entrees and no dessert, in and out in one hour. I do not know, second time here and somewhat disappointed.

    Best restaurant of the trip was Rosemarys on West Sahara about 15 minutes off the strip. Sunday night special, ALL wines 50% off, Food was excellent, Service was excellent and with the acceptance of the Restaurant.com certificate, and a very generous tip, total bill of$165. The wine we had was superb, normally $95, on Sunday half price, only $47.50. Well worth the trip. Also tried Hash House A Go Go also on West Sahara, also on restaurant.com, breakfast was $25. with the hottest and best bloody mary ever. Share these portions, very, very good. We loved both of these places.

    Saw Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. An outstanding production, just go to see the show (95 minutes no intermission) and take in the opera house and the way they constructed this theater, it was truly a sight to see. Get tickets at goldstarevents.com at a deeply discounted rate, had great seats on the aisle and one in about 12 rows back, left orchestra. Left singing all of the tunes, love magic of the night and the Phantom was superb.

    Also saw Josh Groban at the MGM. He put on a great two hour show however, the most uncomfortable seats are in this arena. Show was supposed to start at 8pm, we got there at 7:30 because the MGM is grand and gave ourselves plenty of time, Josh did not start his show until 9pm, so we got out at 11pm, why, a half hour opening act and then a half hour intermission. Way too long to seat in those seats and the place was sold out. Josh was excellent.

    New car rental center opened the first day we arrived, a little confusing, a common bus(not bus for the particular company) takes you to the center, go in to your counter and do the rental thing, paperwork etc. Computers were slow, cars not parked in the correct number spot etc. Return of the vehicle was smoother, and a quick return by the bus to the airport.

    Flew Southwest both ways, one hour delay to Las Vegas, bad weather and a half hour delay out of Vegas. Not bad over the Spring Break, could have been worse.

    Weather was in the 80's, got a chance to sit by the beautiful Mirage pool for a few hours one day and had a couple of cocktails by one of the bars and watched the Masters.

    Overall a great trip and the Gambling Gods were with the two of us.
