Well, it took me a week to recover from this one!! Hotel's: Harrah's on a free night offer... Good as usual. I've stayed at Harrah's for the past 12 years, it's always been home to me. I'll break this up into sections... Shows: We usually don't do any shows in Vegas, but I decided to get the Veronic Voices tickets for the $2.50 price. Best money I've spent in Vegas... she was amazing. Beyond amazing, we really enjoyed ourselves and like everyone else says, I would have paid full price. Food/ MyVegas Aria Buffet- Easy to redeem now that they just put it right on your Mlife Card! Buffet was good, even better that it was free Jean Phillippe- Had a raspberry lemon tart that was to DIE for... again, thanks Myvegas. Harrah's oyster Bar- My husband raved about this place, and surprisingly I've never been. We hit it up before we left to spend some RC's... I had the scallops in a Cajun cream sauce with pasta. It was great. Scallops were perfectly cooked. McD's... had to make a run at around 4 in the morning. I have to say, probably one of the best double cheeseburger's I've ever had. Earl of Sandwich- Great sandwiches, a must have every time I'm in town. Lagasse's Stadium- Shrimp Po Boy, Chili Fries, and 2 buckets of beer. YUM. $50 for drinks at Times Square Bar... used to be a $75 Credit! Still good for free drinks. The Pub at Monte Carlo- Decent food... my husband did not like his fish and chips, but everything else was average. Used a $50 Monte Carlo Credit. Gambling/Sports Betting I play everything... Roulette, Slots, Video Poker... I do the envelope system (split up in my money by day's and leave it in the safe) Gambling wise, I did ok for the most part. A lot of up and down's. My last day, I visited the Triple Cherry $5 Machine at the Cosmopolitan that my sisters and I hit big on last time we were in town. $20 bucks in and 2 spins later a $500 win. A nice way to leave Vegas! Sports betting- Sunday's in Vegas are my FAVORITE! I hit a 3 team parlay, the Sunday night game, and my beloved Packers covered the spread! Go Me! We actually got a table at Lagasse's Stadium and paid the $50/person F& B Minimum. Well worth it. Had a huge couch and an 80" TV. Met some fabulous friends from AZ that were also Packers fans... Fireball shots went down quite smoothly while the Packers were making their epic comeback! Overall thoughts. -The NFR was in town and all the cowboys were super nice... a great crowd to be in Vegas, too bad it's the last year! -WAY too many people not knowing blackjack strategy. Staying on 13's when the dealer has a face card up, hitting on 16's when the dealer has a 5. I know you can only be in control of your own hand, but it's still annoying. -December might be my new favorite time of year to visit. Weather is nice, not that crowded and we got some Christmas shopping done! Can't wait until the next trip!
