First trip report! Scary! Booked my flight with Spirit from Portland, Or to Vegas. I booked it because of the price, not knowing about all of Spirits "add-ons". After all said and done, it would have been cheaper to book with Alaska. We did backpacks to save on fees. But paid for the seats since D had never been to Vegas, and why would I not want to sit by him? And delayed on both legs. An hour delayed out of PDX.By the time we got to Vegas it was about 10:15 pm. Now I have been to Vegas only twice. Once about 12 years ago. The second being back in June for a quick 2 night stay for my birthday. To get back, gave D (my boyfriend), a trip to Vegas for his birthday. It was back in July, but this is when I had vacation scheduled from work. Stayed at the flamingo in June, and got upgraded to the go room, strip view. It was awesome. Booked the flamingo again. Ended up getting all 3 nights comp. For one of the fab rooms. Anyway... Grabbed a taxi. Not a long line at check in. Took about 15 mins.Now it is about 11 and didn't get much of a choice of a room. Ended up with some "suite" on the 6th floor. Overlooked the pool. Did not care for. Was old. But, off we go out to the strip. Tonight we just head down towards Casino Royale for some $1 beers. Had a few there along with some slot play. Nothing wins to write about. Head back to the Flamingo, going through Harrahs, and Quad. Back at the Flamingo, we played in Margaritaville. Slots. No big wins. But some great drinks. Think we headed up about 2:30, 3:00. Feeling pretty good. Tues. Up by 8.We are in Vegas. Down to the Casino. And out the door. Now I don't know how some people can remember everything that happens, but I don't. I do know we walked the strip to find something to eat. Decided that we would try Sammy Hagars Cabo Wabo. We both enjoyed out meals. And I also had the unlimited Mimosas. And enjoyed the strip and all of its lively characters while we ate. After breakfast we headed back to the Flamingo so that we could change our room. This had to be done between 11 and 1. Got up to the 18 floor, fab room, Ceasar view. Recently remodeled. Much better room and home base. The rest of the afternoon we explore the strip. Gambling and drinking along the way. Around 4 we decide to take a nap. Didn't think I would do this in Vegas, but after the drinking the night before, and this day it was much needed. Woke up about 6:30. Starving. We didn't know where to eat, and we were so hungry, we just ate at the buffet. Not good. Not worth the money. The only good thing we ate was the prime rib. We learned. Never again. The rest of the night was just more slot play and drinking. Flamingo, Mirage,-did see the volcano erupt. Headed up to the room early, about 12:30. Wed. Up early again. Downstairs we go. Decided to start the day off with morning drinks. We are in Vegas! Had a couple at the Flamingo, then off to the strip we go. Headed down towards MGM. Stopped and just had a couple of breakfast sandwiches at McD. Explored the casino along the way. At MGM, sat at the Bar and played some vp. And more drinking. Had a great time playing and drinking and talking with the bartender. Tony. He was awesome. Stayed much longer here then expected. I must like this place, because back in June, this is where I had the most fun playing and drinking also. Again walked the and explored the strip the rest of the afternoon. Excalibur, NYNY, and others. Back to the Flamingo, again for a much needed nap. About 4, I think. Couple hour nap and we are ready to go. Decided to go to Hash Hash a Go Go at the Quad. Had a coupon for buy one get one. Got it when I signed up for their emails. I think through face book. We both loved it. Way to much food, but it was great. We did have some leftovers, so we headed back to the Flamingo. Played and drank here. Back to the Quad and played and drank. Back home we go. D was feeling no pain. He kept those drinks going. We did not head to the room until 3 or after. Will finish the rest in a bit. Keep erasing what I wrote. Hitting the wrong Key?
