    My Trip Report

    We did an unplanned trip to Vegas for my birthday. Had a great time as usual, just partied and gambled.

    Some quick notes:

    Plaza
    Had a $3 BJ table
    Viva Las Vegas closed last week
    Rat Pack Dinner show had long lines both nights
    The new lounge show was pretty good
    The Race & Sports book is going to be run by an outside company as of Aug. 1st
    Tried Lombardi's Italian Kitchen, just OK
    Tim, our adopted bartender now works the Omaha Lounge from 10 am to 6 pm. He said to stop by and say Hello
    The light show was packed, both nights
    Paul Utell is now a full time Casino Host. He loves his new job. I’ve got his new cell number for any of us that need it

    I was pretty lucky the whole trip. Nothing spectacular but came home about $200+.
    Any questions?

    I can't think of a better way to spend a birthday. Glad you made a little extra ching. It helps pay for the gas. :thumbsup:

    Sorry, to hear the Viva las Vegas closed. I was looking forward to seeing that magician with her glove act again.

    I think those short, unplanned trips are the best.

    Thanks for the update on Plaza. I skipped them my last few trips. Sorry to hear Viva Las Vegas closed.

    Actually it is more than that. I have been going there for a long time.

    BTW, Buds and Coronas are $2 at the Plaza, all day, all night. :licklips:

    Forgot about the $2 buds and coronas! I knew there was a reason I missed that place.

    Sounds like a good trip. Wonder who is going to run the book?
