  1. I'm kinda fuzzy on some the details (must be those dollar margaritas :ssst:) but here are the highlights
    Sunday April 27th Arrived in Vegas after a good flight with the touch screen tvs in each seat. I played Bejeweled, wacthed American Ganster (the beginning) and mostly listened to music
    Checked in at Hoooters which is a decent hotel (was kinda of worried) and went to explore the strip. First stop Exclibur where I stopped at Dick's last resort and wacthed the bartender do a hilarious parody of the Belliago fountains. Walked to NYNY and then to MGM where meet a nice Irish fellow who when bought me drinks and put a twenty in the video blackjack and let me play we hung out until the bar and walked the strip searching for bar. We went into Planet Hollywood Since I was about to fall asleep standing up I decided to call it a night. I stopped for 25 cent wings at Hoooters. As soon as I sat down a drunk guy who kinda looked like Kevin James sat down across from me and asked for my room number. I made up a number and eventually he left after saw I wasn't interested. Btw I hated Hooter's wings
    Monday April 28 After dragging myself out of bed half hour late for checkout. I walked over to my new home for the night MGM. When I got in the room the bathroom ceiling was leaking. Changed rooms and this was okay but it had a view of the strip. Went sightseeing stopped at the Mirage and got a VIP pass for JET :thumbsup: Went as far as Ceasars signed up for a funbook at Casino Royale and did their free play. By this time it was almost eight went back to my room to try and use the 25 credit I received with my room at MGM buffet but didnt have enough time. Got dressed ran over to the JET met another single girl in line I told it was my birthday we decided to hang out. I was afraid that I wouldn't get in but I got in no problems. When we walked in my new friend went to the bar she handed me a drink and said happy birthday. I was shocked as drinks are 15 dollars but she wouldnt take it back. A few minutes later she handed me a long island iced tea. When we walked in there was a promo for free shoes. We stood in line and filled out a form to be foot model. I wasnt sure but it just was one picture of one foot and free shoes! My friend and I got separated in the crowd and at wbout two thirty and went back to MGM

    April 29th My birthday!! I woke up early so I could check the pool. Loved it at first didnt see the lazy river but when I did I stayed for three hours! After check out more sightseeing I was determined to visit every casino. That was before I realized casinos on the strip appear closer than they are. I ended up walking from MGM to Ceasars. Took the tram from Mandalay Bay to Luxor. Here's the good part of the trip, at around seven oclock I went to Gold Coast where I booked my last two nights. When I got there the supervisor advised I had arrived just in time as the computers had crashed and now where coming back up so the room may not have been cleaned. I asked if anygrades were available and sent me the tenth floor(the top floor).

    I opened the door and it was a suite (sweet:nworthy:) Only problem it was occupied. This happened two more times:grrr: When I came back downstairs for the third time she aplogized again and gave me a key for a luxury suite when I tried to opened the door it would open and I was afriad to force it because I didnt know if this one occupied. Called front desk she send up a bellboy and free coupons for the buffet. He opened the door and I walked into the biggest hotel room I had ever seen in my life!!! Two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a living room and dining room. But my favorite was the master bath jacuzzi tub, separate shower marble floors! I immediately called front desk to thank her. The best part the room was 24 dollars a night!!!!!!!!

    Went to Pure asked the guy in front me how he got a pass then his friend handed me his. Didn't need it walked right in. Since I wanted to enjoy my room I left early but passed put before I could get in

    The nex morning I slept in and wacthed Judge Mathis in jacuzzi then went to see the Belliago fountains, more sight seeing stopped at Wynn

    During all my sightseeing I forgot to drink, water that is :eek:

    Wednesday night went to LAX stayed out until five then went to Palms so I could at least see it.

    The next two days I finshed visting all the casino although I didn't go into every one. Went up the Paris Eifel tower. Took pictures of the LAs Vegas sign. Walked from Wynn to Sahara longest walk ever! Went to downtown on my last day loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wished I had stayed downtown at least one night. I plan to go to Golden Nugget so I can go on the water slide. :thumbsup: Had a fried twinkie. Then off to the airport. I had to take deep claming breaths as the strip disappeared

    To summarize
    Sunday arrival wings bad free drinks good:cheers:
    Monday lazy river Jet
    Tuesday discovered dollars drinks:thumbsup: Pure two bedroom 2.5 suite for 24 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Wednesday sightseeing and LAX and PAlms
