    My Trip Report

    Got into Vegas about 9:15 by the time we picked up our car and pulled out onto the strip we were hungry so In n Out here we come. Yumm. Tried the $20 trick at Bally's got one of the refurbished rooms in the N. Tower. Much nicer room than past stays.
    Took a ride out to RR Canyon. Spectacular. Ellis Island for steak dinner. Very good.
    Mon. went to GVR for Buffet then off to the Boulder Dam. Return trip stopped at Lake Las Vegas than back to the hotel to get ready for the LOVE show. Would highly reccomend this show.
    Tues Headed for MB to the House of Blues for Breakfast. 1 word Yuk. Had a 2 fer and was very dissappointed with the food and service. Very bad attitudes. Don't eat there. Spent the afternoon relaxing in the room while hubby worked. Dinner at the Rio free birthday dinner for 2. Spent time on the strip gambling.
    Wed went to the Valley of Fire was in awe. Worth the trip. Had a Fatburger very good but I like In n Out better. On the way back we stopped at the HardRock for the 777 Steak and Shrimp special. Yummy. With the special,drinks, dessert, tax, and tip our bill was 36.00. Great deal. Went back to the hotel and decided to head to the strat. Joined their players club and ended up with a t-shirt and $29 free play. Caught the monorail to Harrahs and caught the twins playing to a standing room only crowd.
    Thurs. went to the RR casino for the buffet. Gambled some and then went back to the strip. Ceasars for a little shopping ie cologne and Planet Hollywood for lunch at the Earl of Sandwich. All in all a good trip.

    Meals for 2 about 140. for 5 days.
    Gambling only a few small wins dropped about 1200 between the 2 of us
    Shows 1 Love 270.00 for seats in sec 208

    Even after leaving money in Vegas it sounds like you had a really good time. we ate the the House of Blues a few years ago and weren't impressed with the food either.
