I will make an attempt to give a TR for my trip Wednesday March 29 till Wednesday April 2. It started by waking at 2:30 AM to get cleaned up and head towards Omaha for our early flight out at 7:30 AM. :fly: It is a short 3 hour drive there. We made it in the correct time and waited for the cattle call on SWA. I had 2 free tickets that Rhona and I were using for the trip. We arrived in Vegas a little early and caught the shuttle to the car rental building and my thrifty car was waiting. I was using my blue chip membership so I pretty much went directly to the car waiting. So far so good. It was still before 9 in Vegas so I knew it would be a waste to try to get our room yet on a Saturday morning. We drove to the Rio as I had a 2 fer 1 coupon for their buffet which I have never eaten at. I have heard good things. We got there for breakfast and to be honest at full price it would have been too expensive but at half price it was decent. Nothing too special to write about. The roast beef was probably the best thing I ate on the buffet. The service was a little slow at times but eventual we had enough coffee and time to relax. They did have dinner set out before we left and I looked through it. It looked more worth the price they were charging. I was too full and did not try anything on it though. We walked around some to show Rhona the place and went out to see their pool area. It is nice and was already full. We left there and drove down the side street for a while and picked up some groceries. Water, Diet Dew, Diet Coke, of course some whiskey, and a few munchies. It was time to head to our place of stay the first 2 nights, Fitzgeralds. The nights were comped from my host with no problems. We checked in and found they were sold out and my room was not ready yet. It was before noon yet. So we checked our bags at the bell desk and went out to the pool area and enjoyed the warmth for an hour. When we came back I went to a different girl and she was able to find a nicer room higher up for us. We were on the 12th floor with a decent view. It was an updated room and all was fine with it. Rhona and I did some unpacking and checked out the firmness of the bed. It was fine and would be adequate we decided. :mrgreen: We headed down to the casino and I tried some DD BJ. I played for a couple hours and it was a yo-yo session. Never could get a good string of wins going so my progressive betting would pay. I finally quit and was only down $50. It was time to get dressed for our evening meal. Rhona was a sight for my eyes and I proudly escorted her to Binions where we went to the steak house on the top floor. Our table was ready after we enjoyed a drink at the bar there. We were seated by the window and enjoyed the views of Vegas and each other. Rhona enjoyed a glass of wine and had their special of the night. A small filet with some large shrimp scampi that came with garlic mashed taters. I enjoyed the Binions cut of prime rib with a very large baked potatoes. The food was excellent. We ended the meal by sharing a piece of cheese cake topped with a little chocolate sauce. It was the best cheesecake Rhona enjoyed the whole trip. It was the third best prime rib out of 4 times this trip. But a long way ahead of fourth place and close to the top two. It was a very romantic night as the sun set and Vegas lights begin to come to life. I paid our bill which was very cheap I thought. $100 tip included. Down we went across the Fremont street and saw a light show. We headed back towards the Fitz. We kindof stuck out some with me dressed up and Rhona in a dress you donâ€™t always see downtown. J But I was proud when men would stare. I am not the jealous type. I tried some more BJ at the same table. Played for an hour and half or so and finally the long day and big meal and drinks were getting the best of us. I cashed out ahead $50. So the first day in town and my gambling had not accomplished anything. Up to the room and I enjoyed a cup of coffee. It is nice at the Fitz that it comes with a coffee pot. It had been a long day as we had been up almost 24 hours now. But it has been a nice one. Day two to follow.
