Hi all, Just wanted to post our mini-trip report.It was our 3rd trip to Vegas and we had a great time. Broke about even with the blackjack and VP, but had a super time. Some of the highlights included: - Staying downtown was alot of fun! Enjoyed several of the yard long Daquiri's at the Bayou as well as the laid back atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the outdoor bands that played. Very festive and fun! Spent quite a bit of time at Main Street Station. That place is cool! We enjoyed the atmosphere, the buffet (with the $2 extra breakfast steak) and especially the $.99 margarita's. Yummmm! -Saw Mystere. Liked it alot, although expected more for the $190 we spend (just being honest). Ate that night at a fun place in Treasure Island. Can't remember the name. Jungle theme. Great food and HUGE portions. - Ate ourside one night at the Harley Cafe. Good food and great service. Saw the Bellagio Water show. -Caught a lounge act at the Aladin that was fantastic!! Stayed there one whole evening, enjoyed their martini's and danced. A great time! -Ate one night at LaSalsa (Neonopolis). BEWARE! Very poor food all the way around. We met friends and everyone agreed that it was "thumbs down" -Rented a car and went to Lake Mead (took the paddle boat ride) and drove around exploring the mountains, Hoover Dam, etc... Nice to get away for just one day. -Weather was really nice, especially by the GN pool (no wind). Very enjoyable, clean hotel. Next time I would probably split my stay and stay 2-3 nights downtown (probably Main Street Station this time...if they have a pool) and 2-3 night on the strip (Aladin or Mirage). We like both atmospheres and 5 full days downtown was a bit much. Wonderful mix of relaxation, gambling, and fun-fun-fun!
