    My Trip Report

    I'm going to toss some highlights up here for the time being, at least until I can get around to posting a real trip report. Place your bets NOW!

    • Where do they hide all the passengers in the Cleveland hub for Continental? :confused2:
    • People from Cleveland sure are nice :thumbsup:
    • The $20 trick at the Rio works WONDERS!
    • 19th Floor of the Ipanema Tower -- Super Suite (2 rooms, 1-1/2 bath) :drooling:
    • 2... count them 2... HUGE plasma TV's and a smaller one in the bathroom!
    • Quite possibly the softest, most comfortable bed I ever slept on
    • The new WSOP coin poker game sure does have a sweet bonus round
    • No matter what people tell you, $3 Jagr Bombs at O'sheas are NOT your friend
    • It sure is a long walk by yourself to the bathroom at O'sheas
    • Pissing contest in the O'sheas' bathroom... Now that's funny!
    • Nothing like a mushroom swiss burger at 2AM to satify a couple of drunks
    • I H-A-T-E standing on the top of building, but damn does the view at Voodoo Lounge kick ass
    • Those $14.95 margaritas with the souvenior glass at Bamboleo sure do look pretty until it finally breaks apart in your luggage :eek:
    • After staying in such a suite (haha pun!) room at Rio, the rooms at the Sahara sure are one hell of a buzz kill
    • Friday nights at Caesars Palace sure does bring all the pus... er women out :drooling:
    • Carnaval Court... wow.
    • Drunken phone calls are easier if your phone doesn't keep dying on you :grrr:
    • Sahara elevators are slower than molasses come time to check out on Sundays
    • Bookending a trip to Vegas at the Wynn is pretty sweet
    • Check-in at the Wynn is slower than molasses
    • Wynn's marketing department could possibly screw up a wet dream
    • 50th floor at the Wynn... Nice
    • I still haven't figuare out what all that plasma TV could do (which was WAY smaller than the ones they had at Rio)
    • Quite possibly the 2nd softest, comfortable bed I ever slept on
    • What an interesting color of wallpaper Steve!
    • Wynn Buffet... eh
    • Playing on Stevie Boy's dime... SWEET!
    • Check-in at the Wynn is still slower than molasses
    • Asking for an odd numbered room doesn't work if you're needing 2 beds at the Wynn
    • 50th floor at the Wynn... Still Nice
    • Wow, different room number, same room, just a different color
    • Not meeting one T2Vers... SHITTY
    • Spending a week partying with your best friend... PRICELESS :nworthy:
    Looking forward to MM4 folks :beer:

    From the penthouse to the outhouse and back again -- nice. Sounds like it was a great time.

    Sounds like you had an enjoyable trip!

    Friday, we were at O'sheas, hubby and a friend were having a good time with the pissing contest. I wanted to see it, but it's a busy bathroom... much more so than the one at MSS.

    Sounds like your upgrade at Rio was like the one we received. Did it have the tub in the bedroom next to the windows? Best $20 we spent.

    Why thank you very much. :wave:

    I'm assuming that you had a layover in Cleveland. If it was for more than an hour and you didn't let me know, I'm gonna have to bitch slap you... but I'm still nice of course. :)

    I'm looking forward to the full TR... or you could just tell me about it next March. :haha:

    Is it just me or is anyone else wondering how Ron is going to manage to bitch slap Scott, nicely?

    Shock, isn't the devil in the details? :wink2: From your bullets about Wynn I'm still not disappointed I've been to Vegas 3 times since it's been built and haven't set foot in the place.

    After checking the Harrahs website, it appears the suite that we had was the Super Suite, but looking at the pics of the room on their site, it may have been a 2 bed Cariocas Suite minus the bedroom jacuzzi. Still, no doubt, the best room I've ever stayed in.

    I've got some pics of the room that I'll share when I get the long report posted. Sure didn't want to forget THAT room :D
