Hi all, First installment of or trip. We arrived 3/10 at Vdara - got to hotel at about 3:30. Tried to use $50 for two room upgrade. She tried but no go for five nights. We did get lake view,very high floor. Several minor problems in room - all fixed promptly. I don't like the bed - too soft, but I may move to sleeper sofa. Staff extremely friendly and housekeeping came promptly at 9 AM as requested. Bottle of wine left with two glasses - "comped" but no idea why. Did FSE and downtown last night after getting marrige license and stuff for daughter and finace taken care of. Went by Vegas Weddings to look at chapel - wedding is Saturday. Did south end of strip - MC, NYNY, Excalibur, Luxor, MB and went back to rest. Kids went to MGM for a bit. More tomorrow - heading to Venetian for BMG. So far, pretty good trip. Mostly penny slots - not in mood for serious gambling - maybe tomorrow.
