Hi all, wanted to start a trip report but since its 1:40AM and I have to work at 8:00 AM I'm not sure how far Ill get. This trip include myself Mrs golfnut and our good friends C and A. We're all in our early 30's and enjoy a drink or 8 occasionally. The trip started on Friday after we dropped kids of at school. We had a three hour drive to get to the Sioux Falls airport. My wife and I would have flown out of our home town but C and A wanted to save some money and fly out of Sioux Falls. Ok so made them drive and were off. The drive went pretty fast and before we knew it we were at the airport. Got to check in and only a couple people in line. Get checked inane couldn't believe my luck, my bag weighed in at 39.90 pounds. The cut of is 40 pounds. That's cutting it close. Guess I won't be buying anything and putting it in my suitcase. Get to security and what in the worlds going on there is a very long line. There is never a line in South Dakota airports. I guess one of the x ray machines wasn't working so only 1 line. Get threw and its of to the bar to play some video lottery and have some drinks as we wait. The Video lottery wasn't a good start as we couldn't seem to win more then are bet back and our buy ins were quickly dwindled to nothing. So first gamble wasn't what I wanted. Oh we'll there's always Vegas. Flight was easy and with no problems, just like I like them. Got you bags and headed out by the limos and sedans. Ended up taking a limo to Monte Carlo. Gave the driver $80 for a 10 minute ride. Seems foolish But I hate waiting for a cab want to get to hotel as fast as possible. Used VIP check in for the first time. Wow is that nice not having to stand in the large line waiting in the lobby. Get checked in and were able to get into a spa suite that I requested. The upgrade was a total of $160 and the resort fees of $60 so $220. Get done with check and head out to the lobby to find we're C and A are at in line. Ok so they have moved 4 feet. Yeah I think I could learn to like this VIP check in. We ended up going down to The Pub for lunch. Everyone had the build your own burger. It was good, really like the muenster cheese. On mine. I had a couple wells banana bread beers. Also very good. My plan was to hit the roulette tables but I was informed that we were going to go shopping. Head down to forum shops get to we're you enter the mall by the Coach store and that's it. I'm not going any farther. I'm staying right here in the casino and you girls go shopping come find my when your done. Played three random penny slots. Each one I put in a $100 bill and each one of gladly took it and didn't give me anything in return. Now I asked C if he wanted to play or at least play with me. Each put in $20 and take turns if we win split but he wanted to just watch. Then was happy to remind me that I just lost $300 dollars. Yeah thanks for keeping track. The girls find us and my wife was very pleased with coach. She had purchased a purse there six years ago and it started to fray on the top. She still had the receipt and they exchanged it for the full purchase price. I was impressed at that customer service. Not sure if they would do that for everyone or that she's purchased about ten of there purses over the last six years. Walk over to mirage to get our tickets to Daniel Tosh for 10:00 PM. Ok it's now 2:30 in the morning. I better get to bed. More tomorrow night after work.
