    My Trip Report

    Okay this trip was to celebrate my best friends 21st birthday. We had been to Vegas together before but with her fake ID. She never really partied that much because it was a fake ID... so this trip was going to be different because she was finally legal! If you want usefull info about Vegas- you can stop reading here. We pretty much ate buffets and drank all week... if this doesn't interest you- click the red X in the corner of the page..

    Anyway we drovefrom LA on Tuesday morning- If you have never driven from Southern California before this is what you see for atleast 4 hours:
    [​IMG]

    pretty boring...

    It only too us about 4 hours to get there, stopping twice to use the restroom.

    We get to Aladdin and the front entrance to pull in to is under construction. We found our way to the valet and checked in. We got upgraded to a Bellagio fountain view room. The room was about average- but the view was spectacular!!
    [​IMG]

    We decided to start the party!! We walk over to the forum shops braving the cold weather. I am used to LA weather where 60 is freezing-

    First stop was Phat Tuesdays for jello shots and frosty strong drinks...
    [​IMG]

    That got us a pretty good buzz for our shopping extravaganza. The bartender gave us free passes to Pure and Tangerine that we didn't end up needing... but it was nice to have her appriciate my 10 dollar tip on a 20 check...

    I didn't buy anything because I only brought $400 with me and I didn't want to run out of money. I wanted to see if I won any money before I started shopping... but I have to say drunk shopping is great, even if you don't buy anything.

    People seem to always stare at us whereever we went. I don't know why. Maybe we have a different sense of style but I felt like we were on fire because everyone was staring! A lot of people that worked at the shops thought we were locals... I don't know why...

    So we traveled to the casino and put a few $$ in some slots. I won like 10 bucks and decided to move on...

    My friend was tired so she went back to the room to nap. I decided to wonder around Aladdin gambling and drinking. I was sitting at the Casino bar drinking a martini when my friend calls me. She is in LA andsays she has a feeling about 33.... I say "what time do you want me to bet on it?". 7:42 was the time she gave me. It was like 7:15 so I deicide to check out the roulette tables. I walk around, noticing that 33 just hit on almost every table... except one. I stand there waiting almost a hlf hour telling people that I am waiting until 7:41 to place my bet. So I do eventually when it is time. The dealer said" I have a feeling... any one want to go in on this with her" The whole table clears... I mean no one bet on ANYTHING- not even red or black. I guess I looked like bad luck??? Who knows... but the wheel spun and I was just talking to the dealer... and what do you know... 33 comes up. I was in such shock... I just bet because my friend wanted me to... I was screaming and hugging people around me. I had a ten dollar bet out so I won 350. I had no idea what to say... but I do owe my psychic friend dinner!!!

    I go back to the room and attempt to get my drunk ass ready for Pure that night. I didn't do such a bad job... seeing the pictures. We decide we need something to eat so we go to the food court in Ceasars... where some drunk guy kept screaming "Mariah!!!!!" I turned and just waived because everyone seems to think I look like her... His friend comes up to me and asks me if I am Mariah Carey... I look at him... and say "Of course not" I mean I am carrying a piece of pizza and don't have a body guard or anything... he said that that guy really thought I was her and to play it off. So I did... I think I made his night...

    After we ate we go to pure as the doors are opening. I ask the door guy which line I should be in and he replys "None, stay right here". He escorts us in past everone who has been waiting. NICE!! I love being a girl...

    We step inside and buy our first drink. I got a glass of chamapagne and it was $15!!! DAMN! Good thing that was the only drink I bought that night. We aren't really sure if we are feeling this place. We decide to give it a couple hours before we leave... Imean it is only 11. We meet some boys and the buy as drinks. They are way drunker than we are... so we decide to do the whole "Let's got to the bathroom" thing to ditch them.

    Here's a picture of me at Pure on the patio which was amazing:
    [​IMG]

    We go dancing and meet some Cuban guys who are very respectful. They buy us some champagne... and we are wondering why we arent wasted yet. Well, we drank a whole lot to compensate.... and it all hit us at once.

    We met some boys that worked at Light and they pointed out a bunch of guys that were at a table that I guess owned Light... they seemed pretty boring. There were no girls or anything at the table... I mean if I owned a nightclub I would be trying to get as much ass as possible...

    Somehow we ended up in the table section of Pure. We didn't know anybody but quickly met these boys that were from New York and the fed us some Vodka... I was dancing having the time of our life. One guy asked to go home with meout of nowhere. I said "I'm not really like that, but Thank you". He bagan to argue with me saying "You are thinking too much" So I replied, "you might not aprieciate girls that think right now, but one day you'll want a girl that thinks". I mean, I may look like I am ditzy and easy- but COME ON!! I didn't know thinking was a negative thing. I get a bad vibe and get my wasted friend and tell her we are leaving.

    We start to leave and some guy that works there flags us down and asks us if we like English boys. We say yes- we LOVE accents and he takes us to a table where there are a group of Englishmen. They pour us drinks- as if we need it. These boys were not attractive at all, but we had a pretty good conversation. My girl was looking WASTED so I decide tobe a good friend and tell her we are going home.

    Heres a pic of us in the casino:
    [​IMG]

    Then all of a suden we see like 6 security guys chasing after someone. My drunk friend decides to chase them so I have to chase her. Heres a picture of us chasing them... Its kind of ironic because thi is EXACTLY how I remember it.... its so blurry. Most pictures come out clearer...
    [​IMG]

    We finally catch up to them and I guess they were 86ing someone, but they liked us
    [​IMG]

    So- here comes the drunken cab ride!! Where we took this:
    [​IMG]
    It is all about the drunken self portrait.

    We somehow stumble out of the cab, laughing histerically when a bell boy helps us inside. We couldn't stop laughing. Here is our angel bellboy:
    [​IMG]

    We went back toour room after more laughing and drunk dialing our friends. My friend is so drunk she can't even get dressed. So, being her best friend, I dressed her and we went to sleep- at like 6 am

    Day 2 coming soon...

    Your picture of the road to Vegas is right on. Next time take a picture of the big thermometer. IMO its the only thing worth looking at during that whole drive.

    Please have your Psychic friend join the board so she can post her feelings on a regular basis.

    As usual, lookin good girl!

    Can't wait for the rest.....A

    Ah yes. Drunken memories from the Nevada desert. It's simply the best. The pic with you gals chasing down security thru the casino definitely sets the tone for the evening.

    We managed to get tanked up at Fat Tuesdays in the Desert Passage as well on our trip. It was rough, I'm tellin' ya!

    Nice pics with the play by play.

    Here is the rest!

    One thing I forgot to mention: At Pure there was some baseball player there... I think his name was Giambi- from the Yankee's. He was almost as drunk as I was... I'm not really a sports fan, but it was cool to see him.

    Anyway, I woke up the next morning not hung over at all. Probably because I was so drunk the night before I opened up one of those 10 dollar waters they have in the room and drank it ALL...

    As I was in the bathroom getting ready to go downstairs to the casino my friend stumbles in and yells "Oh my God, I am still drunk". hahaha... That's what 21st bdays are about! I tell her to go back to sleep and she'll feel better in a few hours.

    I go on a mission to find a cheep pair of sunglasses. I guess I had broken the ones I brought with me the night before in my drunken stupper. I find no glasses that I like so I decide to go to the casino and have a mimosa and sit at a slot machine.

    On my previous trips, penny slots were like my ATM... I would put 20 in and somehow end up with 100. No such luck on this trip. My 20's were going faster than you can whistle dixie!! So I switched over to a .25 wheel of fortune that this nice lasy said was giving her some luck. It was a good machine giving me lots of spins. I walked away with a little cash- not sure how much. But it was entertainment for me!!

    By this time it was 1:15 and I was starving. I wake up my friend and tell her we are getting something to eat. She didn't want to travel far so we ate at the Zanibar Cafe. The menu reminded me of Cheesecake factory- but a little more ghetto... My friend got a hot dog and asked the server if she could have mashed potatoes instead of fries. The server responded in a very rude voice "I can ask.... but I am not making any promises". I am very patient person when it comes to waitstaff- but this was so uncalled for. I was actually speechless. I mean if it wasn't allowed we would have been more than willing to pay for a side of mashed potatoes. I got some eggs and we were not really impressed with the whole lunch... I tipped the server only 15% because of her rudeness.

    Anyway, we decided to go to Wynn since I hadn't been there yet. I was really impressed. I thought the casino had good vibes and was very well appointed. The cocktail servers were all gorgeous!! If I lived in Vegas I would definatly work there. We walked around the little mall and I browsed in all my favorite stores: Dior, Channel, Louis Viouton.... yeah, I can't afford anything but a girl can dream, right?

    My friend says she needs a nap so she goes back to the room while I decide to have a drink. I went to the bar at Alladdin that is up the escalater. I'm not sure what it's called. I order my dirty martini and just relax. I kind of like having alone time in Vegas to regroup. And what a better time to do that than happy hour.

    I could not have been happier at that moment. I had a GREAT martini, smoking a cigarette, in my favorite city playing video poker tlaking to the bartender. I stayed there for one more drink and decided that we needed to eat. I called my friend and brought her coffee and she felt better.

    We had the buffet at Aladdin. We had this buffet I think 3 times the whole trip. We like it and it was very easy.

    Got Fat Tuesday's and went back to our room to get ready for Tangerine. Here I am trying to look like a super model, I know, I was drunk!
    [​IMG]

    We take a cab to TI and were so happy travelling up the strip... We get there and I notice that the casino was really smokey. I am a smoker and it kind of bothered me...

    It's about 11:30ish and we head to tangerine... somehow get a VIP stamp. They stamp names of colors on your hand and that shows what kind of person y ou are, I don't remember what color I was. I liked Tangerine from the moment I walked in. Very good vibe and everyone looked like they were having tons of fun. I didn't like that the bathroom was in the casino so everytime we had to go- it was an event.

    Right when we got inside we got our drinks bought for us. It was a very nice looking crowd. I turn around and see this group of nice looking guys at a a table and make it my mission to hang out with them. My friend and I go dancing and we see one of the guys on the dance floor so I walk up and introduce ourselves. They were from Australia and were all adorable and very nice. We went back to there table which was on the patio and was amazing. Here I am trying to look cute:
    [​IMG]

    We have some drinks and dance... talking.... more drinks, more dancing...
    Heres another picture of all of us at Tangerine. I look so wasted!
    [​IMG]

    I go inside to get a change of scenery. And this girl comes up to me and starts to feel my foot. I was a little confused but I was drunk and going with the flow... She tells me I have beautiful feet and wants to show them to her boyfriend. I go... and he agrees that they are good feet. Then she asks me to go to the room with her and her man. I guess they have a foot fetish or something. I thank them for the offer and head back to my table and tell everyone the story... only in Vegas....

    We decide to head out to Aladdin to go to another bar there. We grab some of the boys and head over. We go back to our room to get more comfortable and the boys pass out on our bed. I wake up the one thats on my bed and tell him to leave. I said that my friend has a boyfriend and that she doesn't feel comfortable sleeping next to anyone. I said we are going downstairs, when we get back up you should be gone.

    We go to the casino and have a glass of wine and try to go back upstairs but the guys are still there. I mean they are really cute-- but I am really not into the one night stand thing- plus my friend is really not comfortable with it. I wake him up again... and tell him to leave. I came back to the room 20 minutes later... and the guy that was passed out in my bed... is gone... but he left his sleeping friend there!! DISS!! I mean you just leave your friend. I felt bad...

    Anyway, we fall asleep in my bed and wake up at 10ish to get ready to check out. The guy woke up and was sooooo nice about the situation. I am sure he thought I kicked out his friend and that I was a bitch... but really I was just doing the dirty work for my friend...

    Anyway... we checked out and hit the road.

    This was taken on the drive home:

    Random thoughts:
    - I really like Vegas this time of year. Aside from it being cold, I never waited for a cab and we always got seated right away when we went out to eat.

    - I like having happy hour by myself in Vegas. It's a nice way for me to wind down before I wind back up again.

    - It was awesome that I came home with the same amount of money I left with. This was partly because on Wednesday, I didn't spend one dime at Tangerine.

    - I can't wait to go back. I love Vegas!!

    - And I really want to stay at Wynn.

    Hope you enjoyed it... sorry if there are holes missing in this... I was drunk almost around the clock..

    Great story so far, I really like the pics and the great comments.

    That's pretty cool your "psychic" friend came through for you like that. I haven't heard a story like that in a while.

    Thanks Typh. That was a good read. I'm sure that I'm not the only one to notice that the girl on the TV in the "supermodel" pic seems to enjoy your assets. :wink2:

    I love that bar upstairs at Aladdin - great place to kick back & play VP.

    Good times!!

    Well Done

    Great Job as usual! It sounded like you had a great time. the pictures were hilarious. The baseball player's name is Jason Giambi, he's actually a really nice guy, my ex, use to play with him in the minors and I met him a couple of times. Can't wait til you come out again, i want to finally meet you!

    Nice job, Typh! Loved the blurry photo--exactly what everything looks like at the end of the night. Speaking of which, I can't believe how easy you guys have it at the nightclubs. Glad you had fun!

    Best trip report yet!

    Typhinie, thats my kind of trip. All about the booze and partying. You did things right. I love Tangerine, not a big fan of Pure though, the dance floor is usually way too packed to get down and boogie. Body English is my preffered club of choice.

    You did a great job with the pictures. Best part about taking pictures on that kind of trip is when you get crushed every night you never remember those little moments and when they are captured on film it brings it all back. Nice little black cocktail dress, very classy.

    This trip report gets 10 stars. Very detailed, just one question- How the hell did you remember all those details? I never seem to be able to.
    Great job again :drunk:

    Great report, Mariah.... ;) You know that could work in your favor, and I can totally see it.

    Try going into one of your favorite stores and ask them to put it on your account....hey, ya never know.

    The pictures were great, it's nice to know that not everyone has a bad experience at Tangerine. Glad to see you had such a great time. :drunk:

    Thanks everyone!

    Drea- For sure- next time I'm out there it's ON!!!
    Captjoe- Body English is my favorite club also. I didn't think I remembered that many details at all. The pictures sure helped a lot... recapping the night through them.
    Angy: Yeah, if I could find a big black guy to be a body guard and another friend snapping photo's you never know what I might be able to get...

    Thanks evryone for reading it!! I can't wait to go back and write another one!

    I would try the same trick as Angry suggests, but I don't think Fred Flintstone shops at any of those swanky places.....

    I guess I can say I look like one of the Stones........the Flintstones..

    So that's why you haven't been around to weigh in on professional wrestling in the Non Vegas Forum. All is forgiven ;)

    Seriously though, thanks for the great read.

    I guess you posted this when I was away, but I must say the whole thing sounds and looks like classic Typh. Next time take a pic while you're being chased by security...

    Oh, and in the pose you strike in the black dress in the room- yowza! But what exactly is on the TV at the time, a little pay-per-view perhaps? :wink2:


    PS Anyone ever tell you that you have great feet?? LOL
