TR April 1-4 Wife and I - Total Relaxation Tues 4/1 SWA: Sac., Ca. to LV. Up and down. Trip gets faster every time. Maybe 45 minutes. This trip they served our drinks and with SWA humor, they picked them up 30 seconds later. Time to land, welcome to LV. Budget rental. I prefer Enterprise but was best price. Lady gave me a 15 minute talk on the need for car ins. I never get ins. I rented a car for 4 days for $79. Cost of ins. = $100. “Come on man”. Next sales pitch, “How tall are you sir”. 6’2”. You will never fit in that car. Upgrade special. “Come on man”. Plenty of room. Took the drive down LV Blvd. The only way to enter LV. Ck in at Flamingo. Platinum Lounge, no line. Get the CET Visa card people. I will never be Platinum without it. “Flash”! They extended my Platinum Status one more year. Yes!! No resort fees, points never expire, many buffet line bypassed, separate line at ck in. Why would you not get this card? Room is simple Fab rm. But view is a million dollars. 18th floor. Strip view without “Donny and Marie” shading. The window is floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Bellagio, Caesars and Mirage in view. Spend every night before bed staring out that window. Vegas baby. We are light eaters and love Happy Hours. Roy’s HH. 4:30-6:30 Sat at bar. Great bartender. Food was awesome. HH menu on line. Wed. 4/2 Walked around the new Quad area. High Roller looks nice. I probably won’t go on it, but others might enjoy. One revolution for $24(?) during the day and $32(?) at night. Takes about 30 minutes. No bathrooms in pods. Interesting fact: wheel never stops. People get on and off while the wheel keeps moving. Very slow rotation. All stores not open yet. Nice area to people watch. Rain. Walked around the canal shops(Venetian). Total relaxation trip. Belliagio and gazed at flowers. Easter theme. People watching Thurs. 4/3 LV Natural History Museum. DT & cheap. Get coupon. Interesting. It had TUT Egypt exhibition from the Luxor. Container Park (DT). Not much happening during the day. A great try to upgrade the neighborhood, but not much for LV visitors. Milos for lunch. Always a must. $22 lunch special is a great deal. Tomato, pepper and onion salad must have had three tomatoes in it. Sea Bass, yum. Johnny Rocket burger for dinner. Why do I like those burgers? I think it’s the relish. Our gambling is penny slots. When I’m alone it’s the poker room. Poker room seems to always put the trip on the positive side. We played one machine at Aria that gave us 196 free spins. Talk about lazy, we didn’t need to press the “spin” button for 20 minutes. Stare out the window of our room as we fad to sleep. Home in the morning. Stewardess on plane: “ Cocktail Sir“? No thank you.
