    My Trip Report

    Just a quick report on my younger brothers 21st b-day in Vegas.
    I lfew down by myself on Friday afternoon with the other four guys right behing me on another flight. checked my bags at Ballys and hit the casino floor for a bit. First time at Ballys and it wasnt to bad. Nice lay out and decent games. Played a bit of carribean stud and dipped into the slots. The rest of my crew arrived after I had a few $50 cocktails and we went upstairs. After changing we went back down to the casino floor for around an hour or so. Not much action out of Ballys so we went across the street to Bills and hit the craps. Good times and good rolls. We stayed on that table for 3 hours at least. Two of the other guys in the group wanted to go down to Draes. For some stupid reason I decided to go with them. To loud. To dark. To crowded and to expensive. Im a bit more refined than that now I guess. Had one drink at Draes and came back upstairs to get LB and my cousin from the craps table. Grabbed a cab and went to Hard Rock. All three of us had the special with the worst steaks ever. Horrible. By now its 4am local time and we play a bit at the HR. Up and down here nothing to get happy about . We took a cab back to Ballys and I went up to the room. LB and my my cousin went back to Bills.

    Sat. 23

    I rise around 8am and get dressed. Head down to get cofee and run into the guys coming back from Bills. They hit the room and I hit the street. The weather was decent so I took the opportunity to walk the strip. It is amazing to see how much progress has been made on construction from my last visit. I mean from September to Feb. is not that long but you wouldnt know it by the progress that they have made on some of the buildings. I had a nice casual day of drinking and walking....even though I was alone which was kind of strange. I finally got my crew back together around 5pm and after another round at bills we headed down to Carnival Court where LB proved that he can hang with the best of them. :drunk: Good times at CC as always. There were some ladies in town that we knew celebrating a birthday as well so we all went to dinner together that night. Emerills at MGM, 9 people, plus two bots o wine for 700 not bad I guess. My little bro said his steak was the best ever. I had the rib eye cooked on the plank which was good but pale in comparison to the one I had at Delmonicos in September. Once we left dinner we hit the centrifuge bar and the craps table at MGM. The group split up and I wound up back in the room around 5am.

    Sunday the 24th

    Woke up around 9 am and my crew is still out. I pack for my move to TI and go find my guys......of course....at the craps table at Bills. They leave on Sunday so I say my goodbyes. I cab over to TI an meet a friend who is in town for a work confrence. We hit the buffet at Mirage.....pretty good and after that im up for a nap. I go up to my room aorund 4 and sleep untill 11pm. My friend calls and we gamble at TI for awhile. After that we walked the strip untill we got to slots o fun where we played craps for 4 hours. I bought into the game for 40 dollars...I mean where else can you do that. Peppermill for a big breakfast and than we split a cab and I went back to TI for a ew hours sleep.

    Monday

    I get a phone call from Chicago to tell me about the snow storm that was coming. I tried to get an earlier flight but they said there were none. I went to the airport and through security in about 20 minutes. I usually dont play the slots at the airport but I had 2 hours to kill so what the hell. One spin put me in a bonus round on a 5 cent machine and it payed me 551 bucks. Not bad but I still had time to kill....so I went and had a beer or two.

    On the plane.

    Ohare was closed due to the weather. We were sent to St. Louis because we neede fuel. Once on the ground we sat there for around 30 minutes and the captain said he would let us know whay would happen. When we got the OK to leave some guy started to go crazy. He was supposed to catch a connection in chicago to come to st louis and her refused to sit down. threatened one of the flight attendants. The captain came out and tried to explain to him that they couldnt just open the door and let him off like it was a bus. The guy was being a real first class jerk about the whole thing. I mean I understand that he didnt want to leave ST lou to go to Chicago to get to St lou but once the captain said if we open the door youre gonna get arrested...let it go. After about 20 minutes of this a** being calmed down by the captain and his wife he finally went back to his seat. I said to myself they are gonna lock him up in Chicago and just like that when we got off the plane there were several CPD officers and TSA agents waithing for the guy. He actually told the flight crew to call the police because he wasnt gonna let the plane leave st louis and he would open the door if he had to. So instead of getting home late to st louis this dummy is sitting in jail in Chicago.

    Drive home normally takes 35 minutes but because of the snow it took me 2 and a half hours. What a way to end a vacation.


    Had a great time as always......food was ok........one last thought. I read ab out the smell at the venetian but TI smells like lemon pledge. Just a random thought.

    Nice trip and TR Loveshed! Sounds like your early arrival to the airport was a good thing. I always see people playing those slots at the airport and winning, maybe I should try it sometime.

    Hope your getting caught up on the sleep. :)

    Illinois weather sucks! :rolleyes2:

    WOW. First of all, it seems like you had a pretty good time in Vegas. Did your friends just sleep at that craps table in Bill's? About your flight home; don't these people watch the news? Once they tell you they're not letting you off the plane let it go. Accept that you're going to be getting back to St Louis later than you planned. Nice win at the airport, I just can't bring myself to gamble there.
