    My Trip Report

    wow its been awhile

    took a drive to Vegas due to a family emergency (everything is fine now )

    Hotel
    El Cortez

    we got in around 4pm and drove to mountain view hospital and checked into the hotel at 6pm. We got upgraded for free to the tower rooms. 2 queens view of the parking lots next to cabana suites. We got a fridge which we weren't expecting. Coffee maker but they charge for the coffee. all in all in a pinch i'd stay there again =D

    day 2
    we get up fairly late and i surprise my lady with a lunch at Pampas.

    Service was meh. Food was great! did the groupon deal and skipped the alcoholic beverages and ordered a lemonade and strawberry lemonade both are delicious. Lunch included a surf and turf plate which was great. Lobster, baked salmon, clams, shrimp everything was good. Cheese rolls and tri tip where my favorite. Chicken leg was my least.

    day 3
    took my lady to main street station. told her that the buffet was a more home style . She wasn't a fan of the food of the food BUT I WAS lol. i enjoyed the buffet and nothing has changed. Waffles & pizza are my top picks. Her favorite is cravings & Bellagio buffets

    drove out of vegas and into baker. Ive made the switch from Alien Fresh Jerky to Smokeys Jerky. Hope that place makes it. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Right now any purchase gets you a free coffe, soda, water. The guy was awesome. He asked how many times i had gone to his store. I replied twice. he let me get a candy free, opted for the chamoy pineapple. Bought $50 worth of jerky and also got a bag free =D

    and thats a wrap
