Going to split this report up into each day, otherwise I think onn post may be slightly too long! Below is day 1, Weds 29th Jan. With this being just my second trip to Vegas, excitement was pretty high for the weeks leading up to the trip. The trip was organised for a combination of my brother who had just turned 21 in mid January, and also coming to come and watch the Superbowl in Vegas for the first time. We flew over direct from Gatwick, getting some good beers in on the plane giving a nice buzz. We landed at terminal three at McCarran at about 1PM before finally exiting immigration and customs at about 1:45PM. Thanks to the advice of people who told us not to bother booking a limo as they'd have some outside. We hopped in an SUV with a woman from Bell Trans who had retired to Vegas but wanted to keep working still who had moved over from SoCal. We managed to get her to stop at the sign before driving us round to the Monte Carlo entrance, price with tip of $80. We checked in with a nice younger woman at check in who managed to get us a pretty high floor (30), I did try for the remodelled rooms on 29, but she ignored that request sadly. We were situated right at the end of the corridor which was a bit of a pain, long walk from the elevator, but at least we had no foot traffic from the room. Ended up with a good view of Polo Towers, and the MGM complex out of our window. Managed to pick up our MLife cards as well at check in. By this point it was around 3:30PM and we were both feeling pretty hungry (It being 11:30PM at home, and having been awake for 18 hours by this point), so we headed over to CVS in front of the Monte Carlo, was pleased to see a tiny number of porn slappers on this trip, and only ever ran into two outside CVS the entire trip. Picked up some snacks and some bud light with limes with the worlds worst bottle opener. should have just picked up cans. Followed this up with a trip to get 20 chicken nuggets from McDonalds and back up to the room for a quick sleep before heading out for the night. Plan was to get up around 3 hours later about 9PM and go out and grab some dinner and get our gambling on. Of course, by this point we had both been awake for 22 hours and crashed out. I woke up about 1AM, pretty pissed off. I woke my brother up, we showered and went out anyway. Did a small bit of gambling at the Monte Carlo on some Blackjack machines, before my brother hit $75 on a Walking Dead slot from a $.50 spin. Left up from the Monte Carlo and headed north towards Paris and Planet Hollywood. Played a fair bit of roulette in Paris, which my brother enjoyed a lot, and can see him staying there next time he heads out. Ended up leaving Paris and heading back down to Planet Hollywood, taught him how to play VP and we had a few drinks there before looking at the time and realsiing it was about 4:30am. Picked up my very first Earl of Sandwich (Superb, can't believe we only have one of these in London, it rips all over Subway), and headed back to the Monte Carlo with the intention of getting some sleep. Ended up finding a $5 Craps table with just one guy playing, so I stepped up for my first experience on a table game and taught my brother how to play Craps, after having learnt myself on my phone before I came! Ended up about even after about an hour and finally decided it was time to head to bed about 6am or so when they raised the minimum to $10. Thursday coming up sometime later on!
