    Trips to Las Vegas:

    My Trip Report

    This is my first trip report but my 22 trip to vegas. I went alone for the first time, I was soppose to meet my boss from the chamber of commerce and her husband but I only was with them one time for a few hours. I was lonely! :(

    I left Detroit at 9:40pm on American West. First time I'd flown them and was a little leary cause of the negative things I've heard about them."America Worst" Flight left on time and was just fine. Slept most of the flight.

    Got to the IP at about midnight and stowed my bags with the bell desk. I didn't have a room till Sun. The plan was to meet up with scopionlatino and just party all night till I could check in. DIDN'T happen! I kept falling asleep at the Teahouse, if I sat at a slot they kept giving me more beer! That's just what I needed being tired already! But it's rude to say no isn't it? [​IMG] I think it was about 3am that I went to the bathroom at IP and next thing I knew I heard my name on the PA. Must have fallen asleep as it was now 5am! Seems I had lost my wallet in the Teahouse and security had it. All my money was there! Maybe I had too much to drink? Never!

    I checked on my room twice before I could finally get one at 11am. I had asked for a room with a view and not of the parking garage with a king bed. I was so damn tired I told her to just give me anything. Well you guessed it! 2 queen beds and a view of the PARKING GARAGE! Slept till about 5pm.

    Called my boss and they were out and about but didnt say anything about meeting up. I went down to Casino Royale and sat at the bar playing video poker. Won about $35. I spent a lot to time at the bar there.Got to be friends with a bartender and his wife who's a waitress there.
    After a few hours she told her husband I was 'tip only" Cool. Could drink all night and it only cost me $1 every drink!

    Met up with Mikey at the Casion Royale on I think it was Tue? He's as sweet of a guy as he seemed online! I just had to rub his head! He took me down to the Peppermill and we sat in the lounge as I had told him I'd never been in there. It was cool as hell! He makes his car sound so bad but I thought it was nice! I've driven much worse!! (Gotta have money for vegas! As long as the car runs who cares? Mikey got a cramp in his leg so we headed back to my room so he could put a hot towel on it. I told him the # was 539 so we kept trying to get the door to open, Mikey was just gonna call security to let us in when someone on the other side of the door yelled that he was in there. Shit! That's when I rememberd I was in #536! Too funny :D but I dont' think Mikey thought it was as funny as I did cause by this time he really had to use the bathrom! After being in my room for awhile I felt the urge for another beer and some slots so we went downstairs. Mikey had to go and I went to play for the night. (By the way, Mikey gives the best back rubs ever! [​IMG] )

    I met jim at the bar in Casino Royale (see I told you I was there a lot) He was with his wife, brother, sister-in-law and his mom. He's a very nice and friendly guy! I just loved his wife! It was like I knew her forever! Hope to meet them again! They don't live that far from Cedar Point. Maybe we could meet there sometime Jim?

    Got up on Tues? and dyed my hair. Roots were showing a little too much for me! I found I slept a lot cause I was by myself. Or maybe cause of all the beer I'd been drinking? [​IMG] Finally got together with my boss and we went down to the Boardwalk to see Purple Riegn. They are great and the boss was wondering about getting them for our summer festival. I gave her their number yesterday so hopefully she called. The boss and her husband had been walking all over the strip and had blisters,so were surprised when I said let's take the tram from Belliago to the Monte Carlo. They said "what tram"? I guess they should have gotten with me more often cause they had no idea of the trams or the monorail!Of couse they had first trip luck! Brat's!I

    I didnt' come home with anything. Not that I expected to but it sure would have been nice! I left with just enough money to pay for a taxi to the airport and to get something to eat. I had a burger at Cheers, should have had Burger King, it kind of sucked. But I can smoke in there. The smoking lounges are just too smokey. Flight left on time. Back to work on Fri. but it took me a few days to get back into my normal sleeping routine. Always does when I come home.

    It was an ok trip. Don't think I'll go alone again. I need someone to drag around with me so I don't just sit at the bar all day and night! (Not that that's a bad thing) The highligts were meeting the famous Mikey and Jim and his wife. Hopefully I can go back next year. Snickerboob

    Great report. I have to say sitting at the bar and drinking in never a bad thing. I do that each time I go to Primm. I end up making friends with the bartenders so I have someone to talk to.

    Hopefully we can meet up there one day and I can drag you away from the bar....at least to another one anyway.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Nice report I was wondering if you were going to write one. I wrote my first one also.

    My wife and I felt sorry for you because you were alone. Sorry our car was full or we would have made you come with us.

    Casino Royale is a good place to get faced with the $1 Michelob's and $1 Margaritas. At least you had a good place to hang. [​IMG]

    I'm going back Aug.6 to Aug.11 and possibly for MM3. Maybe we'll hook up again. [​IMG]
