Several days ago I wrote a lengthy trip report for our latest stay. Then my computer bleeped and I lost the whole thing. Sat down again this morning, and again, started typing and lost it again. Done. So here it is, the shortened version, lol. * Flight sucked, delayed and diverted due to major storms in Chicago * Mirage was awesome for 2 nights once again * Stayed at Paris for 2 nights, still like Bally's way better * Hate moving hotels * Olives was perfect, again, patio, sunset, lights coming on and cocktails! * Loved Absinthe...loved (except the chairs) * Didn't get long hauled...yeah! First time in long time! * Couldn't win a thing at Paris * Did very well at Mirage * Never made it to the pool at Mirage (too cold, very sad) * Love Sully's! * Don't like bartop VP at Paris * Got an average of 4 hours sleep a night * Room and amenities much better at Mirage than Paris, even upgraded room * Played at Casino Royale and had a blast, go figure * Met some very interesting characters * Ran out of money, had to cash a check * Hubbie won at BJ at Mirage and Bally's, not at Paris (I'm seeing a theme here) * We didn't play craps! crap! * First time in 41 trips, we actually brought dinner from the crepe place at Paris to our room for dinner and was in bed by 9 pm on a Friday night. Yikes. Early mornings and long days made for one early night. * Red eye flight home sucked, won't do that EVER again - no hosts on duty to help with comps and check out. * HATE the new slots, if you don't hit a bonus, you can't play for long. Hit a winning symbol and win $1.80 playing max bet on a penny machine. Hit the bonus and win hundreds. Don't hit a bonus, lose everything and move on. * Deli at Mirage is awesome for dinner, not so much for breakfast * Drink service was great everywhere * Spending fun times with hubbie...priceless! Looking forward to planning next trip in the Spring.
