    My Trip Report

    Background

    One of my friends who lives in Florida broke up with his GF of two years and wanted to go to Vegas to clear his mind, the trip has nine guys total. I arrived from Boston on Wednesday, six people arriving from New York/Miami on Thursday and two arriving from New York on Friday.

    Wednesday

    After taking a half day from work I get all my stuff and head to the airport to make my 7:50 pm flight on Jet Blue out of Boston to Las Vegas. No problems on the flight it left 15 minutes late and still got there early, I really don’t know how this happened. The Flight arrives in Las Vegas around 11 pm local time, I get my bags and head to the Venetian were I have three nights comped and only had to pay a 17 dollar resort fee per night. At the check in I tried the twenty dollar trick with no success. It was a good looking girl her 30’s. After I was told that there was no free upgrades she said do I needed change for my twenty, I kind of fumbled around my words and just got the bill back. The upgrades were 45 dollars a night for a strip view or 150 a night for the riloto (spelling?). I declined and just took the standard room on the 16 floor about ¾ the way down the hallway in the 100’s numbered rooms. Get into my suite and check it out to see if everything is okay and the sink had black stuff in it. After quickly rinsing the sink out I realize that this is not coming out. Call down to the front desk and get moved to the last room on the left. Although I did not pay for a strip view it had a good view of the stip. After I relaxed in the room for a little I headed down to the Casino to play some double deck black jack at 25 dollars a hand. After about an hour I am up 300 making it a great time to walk away. After that I head back up to the room change my shirt and go meet up with some friends from back home that are staying at the palms. I arrived at palms around 3 am I realize that it is dead and ghost bar is closed. So we all headed to the Fantasy tower to see their room and we run into some people that said their friend was having a party in a G-suite. I have always wanted to see a G-suite so we head up to it and the host had a DJ but only about 20 people so, we check it out took some picks in the shower and then left after about 20 minutes. We head down to get a cab and go to o’sheas for some beer pong and a lively atmosphere. We walked to the back and pay 24 dollars for the pitcher, Cups and balls. Wait for a table to open up because they are all full and decided to play some roulette. After playing for an hour or two we decide to call it a night at six am Vegas time. Having gone to work the day before I was up well over 24 hours.

    Thursday

    The boys are in town. Its 11 am Vegas time and I get a call to get my butt over to the ARIA and check out the two hotel rooms that we have there. So I get into a cab and tell him to take to the good liquor store because the one next to hurrahs did not have 1.75 of grey goose. So we head to this store/ bar that is by the hard rock. I go in and get two 1.75 of grey goose, a 1.75 of belvedere, a 1.75 of Jager, a bottle of baileys, case of Guinness, OJ, Cran and red bull. All for a cool 360 dollars. Get in the cab and go to ARIA when I arrive with my huge bottles of liquor I tip the guy opening the door for me 5 dollars and the bell hop comes over with a cart. I Say to the bell hop if you walk me up to the room with the bottles ill tip you 20 dollars. So he was said I just have to call someone and ask if I can. He picks up the phone and said I have a hotel guest staying here with vodka bottles can I walk him up to his room. They say ok and off we went. I show up to the room and find everyone going crazy because I have so much booze. They are in standard rooms on the 19th floor with a view up a different hotels pool and the palms in the background. it’s not really that big of a room and if you ask me not that great (I would rather take a room at the Venetian because you have the couch and table great for drinking games).
    They all pay me 40 dollars each for the booze and we begin to pour Guinness into cups and line them up. After they were lined up we would pour shots of Jager into the cup because we did not have shot glasses and begin to chug. (I do understand that we should have used red bull for the shots but it really was not that bad). So after a couple rounds of drinks we head over to the tent outside of hurrahs and everyone gets a 46 dollars big purple yard glass. Everyone get red bull and vodka and went with Long Island ice tea (this ends up being a big mistake). We walk up and down the strip with the big yard glass and before you know it I can barely see straight never mind walk. We head back to ARIA because I had one of my bags was their so I could get ready and pre game. We all get ready and stand in circle with hooker cards and play a game of hooker card drinking. What we did was you had to ask someone if they had the name of the hooker on the card and if they did they did not have to drink if they did the person asking would have to drink a shot of vodka. After taking lots of shots of vodka we decided to head over to the Venetian where we drink vodka and cranberry. After a couple drinks we head over to TAO and since I was staying in the hotel got us into the club with the hotel line. I stayed for about an hour and went back to my room in the Venetian were I had no clue what I was missing because I blacked out. When I woke up in the afternoon I headed to ARIA to see what is going on for today. When I arrived I had no clue what I had missed the night before. This is how it went, two of my friends when walking back to ARIA found a Special Woman roaming the streets and after a couple of words they had her back to their hotel room for a “partyâ€. After one of them takes her into the bathroom he comes running out and says “SHE IS NOT BREATHINGâ€. This is now 7 in the morning and they have been drinking nonstop since 5 am when they were getting ready to board there flight. So they call 911 and right as they pick up she come coherent. So the guy who was calling 911 hangs up the phone. A couple minutes’ later 911 calls back and he said that he was trying to use 411 and hit the 9 instead. They send up security and they take down everyone information after that they kick the girl out and everyone passed out. I was told by one person who was there that this is by far the scariest thing that has ever happened to him in his life.

    Friday

    After arriving at ARIA in the afternoon and hearing that story we decide to take it easy for a little bit so we down to the pool and get some rays (ironically someone there had to have security come because they passed out by the pool, she was a lady in her 70’s). We have a couple of drinks and I head to the casino to play some Black Jack, the cocktail waitress at ARIA is by far the best looking on the strip. After losing 300 I decide to get my stuff and head back to the Venetian to get ready there. When I arrive at the Venetian I play some black jack at 50 dollars a hand. I was up a little down a little and then I got on a fire and won 500. After buying in for 500 I cash out, when coloring up the lady was going to give me two purple and I said can I have a yellow. She asks the pit boss and he said ok. So I keep that in my pocket all night so I don’t blow it when I’m dunk. After that I head up to the room to take a nap and get ready to go out. When walking out to my hotel the cab line was long so I decide to walk, when walking my friend calls and said hurry up we are all almost ready to go out. When I arrive at the hotel I passed by eve it looked really good and Holly Madison was having a swim suit fashion show. So I head up to the room and pre-game we take more shots of the Jager and head down to the club. After getting to the eve some guy asks us if we would like to do bottle service we said are there any deals going on. He gave us a buy two get one free. So we stuck with the trend of the weekend and got two bottles of grey goose and one of belvedere. After drinking a lot I decide to take one of the bottles onto the dance floor with me. Let’s just say the security and people dancing did not really like that. Holly Madison shows up and is two VIP booths away from us. She is wearing a black open back shirt and looking good as always. After she goes on the mike and they have the show that took about ten min’s I find this Bottle service girl named Britney if you go to eve ask for her to be your server. She is by far the hottest girl on the planet besides my girlfriend. She talked to me a little because I gave our sever a tip to get her to come over to our table. When the bottles were finished they asked if we wanted more. At that point we were really drunk and decided to go to Drais. When walking out of the ARIA we find a limo for 60 dollars he said that he would bring us to Drais. We get in and California Love was playing on full blast with the windows down and we were hanging out of the car singing and screaming at people. The limo driver said that we had to calm down. So we did for about two seconds then the music went back up and we were yelling and hanging out the window. We get in line at Drais and tip the Bouncer 100 dollars to get us into the club. We get in and I have one drink and deicide to take off because I am going to throw up. After walking up the strip to get to Venetian, puking the whole way there, get to my room throw up some more. Set my alarm for 10 and I wake up and call down to the front desk to get a late checkout, they said that I could have an extra hour. Went down to the front desk check out and told them how much of a good time I had. So instead of going to the two hotel rooms pack of people feeling like I was going to die from being hung over I head to harrah’s to try and get a cheap room. I go to the desk and ask if they have any availability, they said 225 a night. Since I did not have my total rewards card on me I went to get a new one so they can look up the rate with my play. When I go back to the front desk they said now that they have nothing available. So, I decided to go to IP and see if maybe I can get a good deal over there. When walking down the little walk way I decide to take out my player club card for Venetian and call to see what I can get for a hotel room. The lady picks up and said you have two free nights. I almost paid 225 for a room at Harrah’s when intern I got comped at the Venetian. So she asks me what time would I like to check in, I told her ASAP. I arrive at the Venetian and get checked in now I am on the 30th floor half way down with a view of the strip. I then head down to the casino to cash in my 1000 dollar chip. So I take 500 of it and sit down at the same double deck black jack table and once again walk away with a 1000 dollar yellow chip. I head back to the room and take a nice long nap and get ready to go out. All the guys come over and we get a game of kings going with the cards that I got from one of the booths outside of Harrah’s. I have never had a game come down to the very last two cards one being a king. The guy before me picks the king and has to drink the glass in the middle of the table. We then decide to go to XS. We show up and ask about bottle service and they said that they have been sold out for a long time and that on Sunday’s they are sold out until the end of summer. We decide to go in anyways. It was a very large club that was packed wall to wall and all of a sudden it starts to rain. Everyone from outside decides to rush inside it was so packed that we left and went to TAO. For the number of guys that we had in the group we did not want to do the 1350 min for the bottle service. So we haggled with them to only give us one bottle. So they put us all the way upstairs by the coat check. We were moved into the opium room and milked the bottle until the room closed at 3. We then head over to the main room dance for a little and I bale back to the room with one of the other guys who had a 7 am flight. He gets his stuff and heads to the airport.

    Sunday

    I wake to the guys calling me to let me into the room. Now it’s only five of us left and we got some subway to eat and then just relaxed in the room. I did gamble 300 dollars at the double deck black jack table and lost. We were thinking of going to a move and decide that we would be better of drinking instead. So we headed over to the palms and tried to go to Ghost Bar. We showed up and it was not open until 8 so we played black jack on a double deck table for a minimum of 15 dollars and it paid 3 to 2. I had about six drinks and was feeling really good and up about 100. We head up to ghost bar a little after 8 and stay for a couple of drinks with no one there but the employees. We take some picks and head downstairs were we played some roulette and won ten dollars each and had a round of drinks (mine was vodka on the rocks). We head back to the hotel and decked to call casino marketing to see if we can get a limo back to the airport. They said that it would cost 55 dollars and would have to check on availability. I said okay let get it set up. The lady at casino marketing said that she could not do it because I did not have my credit card turned on. So they said that I had to go speak with the front desk to get it set up. Since I was checking out early they said that I might be subject to a 75 dollar early check out fee. When I get down to the front desk they waved the fee and gave me the limo for free. We jump in the limo and take what seemed like a 30 min ride to the airport with the music blasting and shots of Jager going down the hatch. We arrive at the airport go the security as a drunk mess get on the plain fall asleep and wake up in Boston.

    The end

    great report. I enjoyed reading that. i was thinking of the movie very bad things when the "party" girl wasn't breathing. I doubt ill be getting a yard of alcohol at Harrahs after reading that. I think a foot of it will do just fine for a nice buzz.

    What a fabulous trip report. I was really feeling for you, walking back to the Venetian, puking all the way. Not sure if you guys ever ate, but you certainly took care of the drinking. Thanks also for the detailed info on the clubs you visited. We never visit clubs while we're in Vegas so it's fun to read of your adventures. So did you end up going through all your money or did you bring some of it home?

    Vegas in 13 days!!

    Great trip report! How was Tao? We were thinking about going this trip, we usually never do clubs. We are in our late 30's and they always seem to be a much younger crowd.

    great trip report. I am hoping to have a similar trip when I go tomorrow with 4 other guys.

    I was thinking of getting bottle service at XS, but if its that packed I don't know if I will want to.

    Any tips on what clubs may be good for bottle service?

    also TAO was fun for bottle service try and get in the main room.

    XS gets packed and if it was a nice day with the outside you would be all set. Not to offend anyone but just an FYI XS was 90 percent Asians
