My wife and I recently spent a little over 40 hours in Las Vegas. It was our 4th trip to Vegas, and this was certainly the shortest. Allegiant Air had the flights for $29 each, each way, and we got Friday and Saturday nights at Bally's for less than $50 per night, so it was a good opportunity to get out of town for the weekend and have some fun. I was not sure if I would enjoy such a short trip, but I had a good time and would do it again. We flew out of Great Falls, Montana, at 8:30pm on Friday, 3/6/09 and arrived in Las Vegas around 10pm. Our previous trips were always in the middle of summer, so it felt strange to be in Las Vegas when it was not 105 degrees! It took us a while to get a cab, so by the time we arrived at Bally's it was 11pm. We had booked a south tower room and when we arrived the person at check in asked if we prefered a king size bed or two queens. We requested a king and she said, "we don't have any kings." But then she found a king size bed in the Noth tower, it was on the 16th floor and the room number ended with an "A". But when we got to our room it was not a king size bed. But the room had a couch, coffee maker, and a fridge so I was pretty happy with it. We spend Friday night mostly walking around in Bally's, Paris, Bill's and Harrah's. We gambled a little, between us we lost about $100.00 playing blackjack. Around 2am we walked to Ellis Island to grab something to eat. I am not sure if walking back there at 2am was the smartest move, but we didn't have any problems. I had the steak special and was pretty happy with it. I read here that you have to ask for the steak special since it is not on the menu, but they had the steak special posted on the sign in front of the building, so it is not really a secret. We fell asleep around 4am and were up again at 7am. Saturday was our only full day in Vegas so we tried to plan carefully so we did not waste much time. We walked down to the Tropicana and then down to Hooters since we had never been inside either of those casinos. We won over $100 at Hooters, so that made up for our losses at blackjack. There were other times during our trip that we played some machines or a table game or two. Most of the time we broke even or suffered small loses, which were balanced out later with small wins. My wife and I are low rollers so we never win or lose too much. We took advantage of the special at the Flamingo where if you bought a ticket to Nathan Burton for $19.95 you got a free ticket to the buffet. We caught his show at 4pm and then had the dinner buffet at the Flamingo. I would say that both the show and the buffet were okay, nothing special. If I had paid full price for both I would have been disappointed, but both for around $25 was not too bad. After dinner we went to Toby Keith's inside of Harrahs for a drink . The bartender said that things are just starting to pick up and not to long ago most bartenders were only getting one shift per week. Not sure if that was th case or a story toget a bigger tip, but he certainly seemed sincere. At 8pm we went down to the Dueling Pianos inside Harrah's. That was a lot of fun except for this incredibly drunk man who kept punching my wife in the arm asking is she was having fun. After 3 or 4 hits to the arm she and I switched seats and he beat me up for a while. Around midnight or so he toppled over and crashed on the floor. It is not nice to enjoy the misery of others, but I couldn't help but think karma played role in his accident. I think that everyone in his general area was happy to see him leave. We went to bed around 2am and left the next morning at 10:30 to catch our flight home, which was supposed to leave at noon. Not long before noon Allegiant announced that the flight has been delayed so we did not leave until 4pm. We got to spend some quality time in the airport. We are going back in May for 4 days so this short trip helped to give us something to look forward to. We are looking forward to warmer weather so we can hit the pool a few times. Thanks for reading my first trip report.
