Joe S . asked for a Rio report so here it is. We've been going to the Rio since the days when they let you in the Voodoo free. The big attraction these days is the location and the CET deals we get there.I envy people who are organized enough to remember each machine or table they play,I dont. Flight and rental Car,Long flight but we had passes for the United club in the Airport that made the day better and we got upgraded to an exit isle free on the way home. The car rental started out ok at Thrifty the guy went thru a whole presentation showing us what cars in our class were avaiable,we picked one so we walked outside and the kid there we dont have any Impalas but heres a free up grade to a Crown Vic ,nice a police car.Worked out ok,last day gassed it up till the nozzle kicked back and rounded it off. Keep in mind we live in a state where its full service,but I never had an issue before returning a rental fully gased. But this Indian dude did the hand held computer thing and handed me a slip for $20 more. What? Oh you didnt fill the tank sir ,get in and see for yourself. Thats BS and it was just a hair below the line so I slammed the door,cursed him out went to the see the manager and took care of the problem. Food Did the Gold Coast Breakfast Buffet most days ,tried the Palms once, it sucked. Did the Ellis Island steak and the Mon Ami Gabi outside and also Margaritaville (tourist trap) . My friend who works at the Rio recommended Noras for Italian ,EXCELLENT! Located in a strip mall on Flamingo. Gambling, just bad , what can I say?
