This is the best type of Vegas trip. You know, the one where Vegas is nowhere in sight then all of a sudden you have just finished booking your trip. So bare with me as I give you some details. Keep in mind that I'm not the writing talent that Mikey is which is why I usually just read the posts. Ok, here goes...... My last trip to Vegas was in November 02, and was sick the whole trip. So I have been itching to get back. I've been trying to set up something for a while but with no luck due to schedule, business etc. even had a room booked this month that had to be cancelled. Then it happends........ The mrs and I get a phone call a few weeks ago that her Aunt and Uncle who are big vegas people booked a trip for June 1-7 at Monte Carlo. We have always talked about going together but it never seemed to work out. So another phone call and visit from them over past weekend laying it on thick about vegas made it very tempting. On monday 5/19 the mrs calls me at work and tells me that we got something funny in the mail. She goes on to say that we got a wedding invitation and would you believe that the wedding is in vegas on the same week that her Aunt and Uncle will be there. With that she says those magic words " maybe we really should go"........ When I got home all the vegas postcards where on the table and I enjoyed that rush you get as you are looking for airfares and the hotels that will give you the best deal. I actually took a moment to realize that I was smiling from ear to ear. The details are..... Going June 2-6(don't even have to wait that long) flying Jetblue out of New york 250.00 round trip. staying at the Trop.... never stayed there before but the calander postcards they sent me were too hard to pass up. $35.00 a night with Thursday free plus the Rick thomas show tix's and tix's for the other show free. Some 2 for 1 drinks specials etc.....I know the rooms are small from what I read on here, but I never spend anytime in the room other then to pass out and shower. Plus the pool is nice with the swim up Black Jack(after memorial day, I made sure). So that's it...... There's nothing like a vegas trip that falls into your lap. I'll admit that my hits to this board increase 100 times when I have a trip booked so I'll be on alot between now and June 2nd. I'll make sure I'll write a trip report when I get back... P.S. I was trying to get out there in July to be part of the "Hurricane Eleven" until this trip came up. I'm sure mikey and the gang will do alot of damage to the casino's while they are there.
