Trip Report Jan 17-19 This is my first trip report and dedicated to all Vegas junkies and the trip reports they have posted here. Plan: To meet up with my brother from L.A. and a friend from Portland. I flew in from Phoenix. Flight: We all flew in SWA and all landed within 40 min of each other. Gotta love SWA! Room: Flamingo for $55 per night. Clean, nice, pool view. Staff was friendly but have had some issues in the past. Day 1 We checked in to the Flamingo at the airport check in at 2 pm with no line. We grab a cab to the strip and stash our bags in the room. Itâ€™s now 3pm and lunchtime so off to the Margaretville. We were all disappointed by the food, cheeseburger was OK but the fries SUCKED. And the volcano show was a joke. We all decided that would be our last visit. I was playing tour guide for the group so we started with an old favorite of mine the Barbary Coast. We walk the 20 yard from door to door and start looking for cheap blackjack and craps. Craps was $10 and blackjack had a few $5 tables but no seats available. Itâ€™s Wednesday at 3pm and the tables are packed, donâ€™t any of you people have jobs? Itâ€™s still early so we decide to head over to Ballyâ€™s and Paris for some sightseeing. We all enjoy the Paris casino but the tables there are just way out of our price range. We are now getting nervous that we wonâ€™t be able to find any cheap, fun place to play some cheap games. That is when my knowledge from reading this web site kicks in. I shout out â€œ Oâ€™Sheasâ€ and point to the door. They look at me like I have lost my mind but follow anyway. As soon as we see the sign we know we have found our home. 18 hour happy hour with $1 drafts and $5 blackjack. We played $5 blackjack and 25cVP while enjoying all the free Smirnoff and Soda and Fosters we could guzzle. I put $20 in a bartop VP and play 25c JOB for 2 hours and turn it in to $50. The music they played rocked the house. My bro and friend proclaim me â€œTHE MANâ€ for finding this great place. For some reason my memory is fuzzy after that except for a drunken message I left on my voicemail at 2:30am from Bugsyâ€™s bar at the Flamingo. What the hell was I doing there I have no idea but at least I made it home safe.
