    My Trip Report

    Who
    Me and my husband


    Room
    Booked a Go deluxe king room, got a Go deluxe queen room because they were full.
    Changed to a Go luxury king room the day after arrival. Great room!


    Sightseeing/activities
    Hoover dam
    Ethel M cactus garden christmas lights
    Motor speedway christmas lights
    Siegfried & Roy's Secret garden (MyVegas reward)
    Lots of shopping
    Lots of driving around


    Food

    Buffets
    Paradise garden - Decent breakfast
    Spice market - Nice Lunch
    [Note to self: Don't buy TR 24h buffet pass if you're gonna miss half of the planned meals because you're too slow or sleep too long.]

    Cravings - Best Vegas buffet I've had, great lunch. (MyVegas reward)
    MGM Grand - Didn't like it. At all...(Myvegas reward)

    Restaurants
    Luna Rossa - Great italian place on Fremont street. No other visitors, so service was fast and pizza was awesome.
    Rock & Rita's - Fun place..
    Pink Taco - Good food, but the general feeling afterwards was "ugh..."

    And lots of food court/drive through meals...



    Gambling

    Played at:
    Flamingo
    Caesars
    Bill's
    Bally's
    Mirage
    Quad
    Harrah's
    Casino Royale
    Slots a fun
    Hard Rock

    Not the greatest luck on the slots. I don't play table games, although I did play a round of craps at the Hard rock hotel, just to try.
    Husband plays some table games sometimes. Not very much luck there either. Our standard gambling budget is $100/day each.
    Biggest win this time was $70 on the huge wheel of fortune/wolf run at Casino Royale.


    Shows

    Defending the caveman - really funny.


    Overall it was a great trip. Had lots of fun, great food and drinks and simply an amazing time. Nothing more to say.
