We did a long weekend in Vegas. It was the first time we got comped for rooms at any hotel, and we got it at IP cuz we were low gamblers. As mentioned we've only stayed at IP the last few years. Saturday: After turbulence and a less than smooth landing to the airport, we arrived at IP. We've actually done good w/the slow elevators during slow seasons, but it was the first time we came in middle of summer. DANG they were slow! It wasn't until Sunday we too advantage of the back elevators which nobody seemed to know that it swings around to towers 1 and 2 also. We got 3-day Monorail tickets and off we went to MGM to see David Copperfield. I had never seen the show, and boy was I underwhelmed! It was alright, but I've seen him doing great stunts on tv, and I guess it is now the semi-retirement toned down version of his show. The only other magic show I saw was Steve Wyrick just 15 months ago, and it is now hard to believe his show is gone. I thought his show was pretty dang great and more electrifying. After that we tried to get on the monorail again, but it broke down. The crummy part was that there were no signs to say it broke down, so tens of folks who bought one-ride tickets were screwed. We took a taxi for the first time in 15 years, yowza, to get to Harrahs. I have only one gambling story to tell and it is for Monday. Sunday: As I mentioned before, we only eat breakfast at the diner at IP becuz all we need is a muffin and coffee. Alas, we did a first and went to McDs next to Harrahs. It was nice and clean and impressive the prices weren't skyrocket high as they were at the food court near Circus Circus (we haven't been to that side of strip since 2003). We went to Fashion Show Mall/Wynn/Palazzo for the first time ever. Fashion Show Mall was great in that we loved the food court variety there. I had a chicken crepe, and I hadn't tried that before yum. We saw the fashion runway show and shocked it is not advertised more. We sat the floor above to drink milkshakes and get a bird's eye view. We had no idea where the models were going to start walking, and then one part of the stage slowly rose up to reveal this cubicle where the models came out of! Ingenious! Here was the gem. We had to get to Wynn for Le Reve, but we did NOT want to eat costly food at Wynn. I kinda regret not doing much research because there was a deli at Wynn with okay prices. So we would kill time at Palazzo, walk back to Fashion Show Mall, get to-go-food and eat it at the Wynn. At Palazzo, my FEET WERE KILLING ME! My so-called athletic sandals were hitting the bony top of my feet. Luckily there was the Walgreens nearby and we had no idea again that prices were okay and no inflated. I got great pair of flip flops for 8 bucks. So back to Fashion Show, we got KFC, and yes, we were actually going to sit down at the Wynn to eat it and gamble too. HOWEVER, I guess Mr. Wynn didn't want anyone sitting around at his fancy mall cuz there were NO benches! Even his flower garden had no benches!
