    My Trip Report

    Got there at 1:30. Fast check in. Tried the 50 trick. I don't do that and that was it. Got a basic room. The refrig with the $$$$ stuff to drink was loud from the room next to us otherwise the room was good. Louder in the day and not so much at night.
    Mostly lost on slots at Paris. A little better at Bally's, CP, Bellagio. PH, I slotted for 5 hours straight and made $400 and left with it. Saw Blue Man and didn't care for it but my wife loved it. Ate at the Grand Lux Cafe and was great as always. At Paris we ate at the Le Provencal which was very good but not great!. Also the Le Burger Brasserie which is always good. Weather was good except yesterday down to 78 from 90 the day before and low 60's today. Bummer from all the annoying and rude kids out of college. Boy, I'm no
    fuddy duddy but man, I've never been pushed, bumped into and been rude to ever in Vegas. 10 years ago they would have been kicked out or at least talked to but I see things changing and that isn't going to happed. They want that money and will put up with alot more at least from what I saw. Didn't eat at as many nice places as we like to for whatever reason. All in all it was an ok 5 nights. Casinos were 85% full so it wasn't to bad to find what you wanted.

    Sort of glad to hear the crowds are back. We're headed there on the 30th for 5 nights. Enjoyed your take and thanks for posting.

    Nice report. I hate to read about the situation you encountered with rude patrons. Rudeness & Vegas are not a combination that will work at anytime. Sad.

    When we stayed at Paris a couple of years ago I had my bill out in full view for optimum room upgrade incentive. The woman checking me in screamed, and I do mean screamed, "I can't take your money." I was mortified! I more than got the point.

    Grand Lux is one of our favorites. Le Burger Brasserie sounds like a place we will have to try.

    Thanks for sharing and congrats on the slot win.

    I shall liberate your money from those Paris slots next week, so at least you know it's going to a worthy cause :D

    Can't say I'm surprised about the amount of douchebags around though. Vegas seems to attract an awful lot of them.

    Some multi game penny machines. Pirate bay at PH and Bam at Paris and Bally's. Have to play max on Bam to get free games but not on P Bay. Both were somewhat good to me.

    Did you encounter the Douchebaggery everywhere or in certain places. We're headed out for our annual trip in a few weeks (see counter). For the first time, we're not staying in the Flamingo/Harrah's/IP clump, mainly due to the rapid increase of that kind of behaviour in that area. Hope it's not like that at Paris!

    It's good to hear that the crowds are picking up; but, if a majority of them a rude douchebags that can put a real damper on a vacation.
