I was mulling about doing a trip report, but I felt I had done one every yr I've been to Vegas, so why stop? It was the best of times the worst of times. As a low roller I've been on a fortunate streak of not losing much or making at least some every trip, but this one? I lost the most at $300 dollars for a long weekend. Gladly the shows made up for it. We left Thursday morning on United, actually is was Continental which merged with United. It was the 1st time in my 20 trips abroad and across the U.S. that I was stuck on the tarmac for TWO HOURS for a 3 hr. trip. So I was really crabby when I got to Vegas after unplanned 5 hrs in a plane.thankfully, the Riviera show was in the evening. We unpacked at Imperial,and the taxi ride was not so bad. However it stops in the parking lot which we're unfamiliar with and looked isolated. It was our first in Tower 5, the one with the middle elevators and not the oh so slow elevators that folks complained about. This room looked cleaner and nicer than usual fare. I was still feeling irritated and losing 100 bucks that evening Blackjacking and slots didn't help. I heard so much hype about the Clue slots that I was eager to try, only to lose so much. We grumbled our way to Riviera, and I hadn't been on that side of strip in years. It was doing pretty well! Ate at the Asian restaurant, decent but slow service. I was hemming and hawing about which magic show to see as Dirk Arthurs closed with OSheas. With Jan Rouven's show, I loved it! I hope he can last there. Roughly 80 folks that night?
