    My Trip Report

    Wow this trip kind of came out of nowhere.
    I got a couple of offers in the mail a few days ago and was just looking at them with no intention of going. My wife was acting interested, I asked her if she wanted to go and she said yes. This really shocked me cause I’ve been 8 times in the past 3 years and I have always asked her to go but she wouldn’t leave the kids. So this will be our first trip anywhere without children in 13 years. Staying at Fitzgerald’s and Imperial Palace March 2 to March 5. Wooo Hooo.

    Looking forward to the TR. My timer is in negative numbers [​IMG] , so I will have to live vicariously through everyone else for another year.

    Scott, Sounds like a second honeymoon to me. Ya'll be careful and don't hurt yourself. ;)

    If your kids are teenagers I can understand why your wife is ready to get out of town.

    Hey Scottie--

    If you call ahead, I think that at the Fitz they can rig the room with a Clapper so that when momma comes out of the bathroom wearing her Special Occasion teddy, you can lie in bed, clap your hands, and Marvin Gaye tunes will instantly start playing.

    Of course, this is what I heard. I could be wrong... :rolleyes:

    Have a great time!

    That actually reminds me of a model home we once toured before we found the house we wanted to have built for us. It was set up with a switch in the bedroom that dimmed the lights, shut the curtains, turned on the gas fireplace and started playing music. There was a little sign saying "ask about our romance package". We didn't, just flipped the switch in the bedroom and just about doubled over laughing.

    I have always appreciated that this board is above the gutter, but I will comment that it seems like Vegas is a great place to get reacquainted in ways that are difficult back home with the kids in the next room or likely to show up at any minute. We stayed at the IP for our anniversary last year. Our older kids arranged room service chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine. Needless to say, we had a great time. Enjoy!

    You guys are cracking me up!
    Guess I’m a lucky guy cause the first honeymoon is still going on here.
    Been married to one gal for 15 years now and I adore her.
    I’ve got a great married life and I’m going to take this opportunity to spoil her, she deserves it.
    I’m really looking forward to spending 3 nights in Las Vegas with my best friend, my wife.
    Thanks for the good wishes. ;)
     
  9. okay Heather is stalling on the trip report..
    SO I told her I would do it..
    DAY 1 Jan-20..Heathcat and Kevin American West non-stop from Boston
    Me Southwest from non-stop Baltimore-Washington..set the clock for 12:01 to print the A boarding pass..brought a long portable DVD player.
    Met up at baggage claim, checked in Flamingo at Airport Heather got us a $40 rate from LVA..25th floor, okay view of the fountains..POOL was heated so we went for a swim (Kevin declined..not warm enough)Hot TUbs with six pack of MExican beer
    I called my mom to try to entice her and my sister-in-law, Paula to hot tubs..they were staying the week at the Fairfield Grand Resort timeshare...My mom screamed "we can't we are at Ballys gambling" and immediately hung up!! Hour later she and Paula show up ...reporting that my father and brother, Cameron have been at the Bellagio since 9 am playing poker...
    Take my mom and Paula, who is a LV virgin, to the Barbary Coast where of course beginners luck Paula wins nice chunk at Black Jack...She has been in Vegas for 24 hours by this time and already has a Players card for almost every casino on the strip..Dad and Cameron find us at the BC and we all go to Ellis Island for the 4.95 steak dinner...the hour wait was to our advantage I won on video poker as did Paula (seems like Paula could put a 5 in a quarter VP and walk away with 25 or 50 bucks in a few minutes)..Dad and Cameron are studying the horses for tomorrow and we all are getting quite drunk...
    Time to SING!! My mom is drunk and making friends with everyone so we leave before it gets out of hand!! Paula keeps saying whe really likes this gangster bar..there was quite a few scary characters there that night but the singing was great!

    Day 2 Ruth and Storc arrive from LA at 9 am knocking on our door with bagles, lox and bottle of oj and 2 bottles of Champayne..YIPPEE WE ARE IN VEGAS AGAIN!! OFF to DOWNTOWN Check into FITZ"S $105 for fri/sat ...EL CORTEZ here we come!
    Ruth plays poker wins...Kevin and I did well tossing dice and Storc is in AWE..Cameron, Paula and my mom meet us reporting dad is missing THey are worried..they woke up at 9 and he was gone!! Maybe we should go look for him at the Bellagio poker room. I replied that he obviously doesn't want to be found or he would have left a note...
    WE have the 99 cent shrimp cocktails and sandwiches....I prefer the big shrimp cocktail for 2.99...THe sandwiches are very good there..
    More gambling..
    Mom gets pissed at the GOLDEN NUGGET BJ dealer for yelling at Paula ...gets up and SAYS "I DON"T HAVE TO LOSE MY MONEY TO AN ASSHOLE"..Good Point, Mom ...off to 4 QUEENS and Fitz
    Back to the room...oh yeah rm 33025(I think) nice view of the mountains! Joined by Jess and John from NH they are staying at the Sahara...out for a bottle of rum and mixers..DVD also plays CDS and Heathcat has mixed some great VEGAS CDs..Tom Jones, Frank, Dean etc...We are dancing on the beds on the window sill in ridiculous wigs that we all MUST wear ...Mom looked great in the bright orange page boy ..Family pic Christmas Card will be quite shocking for the family back in SC...WE downed a bottle of RUM almost instantly..Now it is only 6pm..
    We all love downtown...we dance up and down the street, strong drinks,cheap gambling and partying people!!!

    Summary
    $45.oo Flamingo
    $105.oo Fitzgeralds 2 nights
    In and Out Burger...3.95
    Ellis Island Steak Special 4.95
    Six pack of beer
    1 bottle of rum
    Everyones is still playing with "yesterdays money"
    WE like the Flamingo stayed last June..the pools are nice but you can get a deal and MOST IMPORTANTLY you have the Barbary, Imperial Palace right there...
    FiTZ is fine but again LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
    To BE CONTINUED....

    Unless Hoya has more buttons since she is an Administrator, only the entire topic (thread) can be moved, not just one post.
