Iâ€™M BACK I like reading other peoples detailed trip reports, so hopefully I can fill the void that people are looking for while waiting for there next trip to Vegas So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy dates: September 18 to September 21 quick trip Here we go we are flying Allegiant Air out of Duluth, as we walk in to the airport they tell us our aircaft will be arriving in a 30 minutes, so we should proceed thru security. We had pre booked our seats and were carrying on our luggage. No not a big lunky suitcase, but a small over the shoulder carry onâ€¦.I'ts 100 degrees there how much clothes do you need for 3 days. Our flight is scheduled to leave at 1:45 and we are all on the plane ready to go by 1:30 non eventful flight, not too bumpy, good service, they came thru 3 times peddling there wares on the last pass I decided to do a Jack and diet to start the vacation, hubby slept so I had it all to myself. Read a book and the 3 hours passed very quickly. Landed a half hour early and we were off, no cab line, had to wait a bit to get the cabs to pull forward we could see them but there was a lot of pedestrian traffic so they didn't let the new line pass thru till it was all clearâ€¦.Excrutiating seeing the cabs and just not being able to get one LOL We were off the Flamingo, some traffic and some construction, but it didn't seem that bad for 3:30 on a Friday. Cab fare came to about 25 with the tip. FLAMINGO: we go to check in and the line for the common folk was quite long luckily we were platinum card holders so we got to go in the diamond/platinum room . No line at all , walked up gave him our info looked down and saw a penny on the floor (put that in the pocket for good luck) he says : I have you 3 nights comped in a King Go Room!!!! YIPEE!!!! I had called on Wednesday and inquired about upgrading to a GO room (was willing to pay extra) I was told that all upgrades would be available at check in,but she would make a note on my res formâ€¦well it must have worked and the penny had magical powers Off we went to our GO room 21060. about 21 steps from the elevator, so no long walk down the hallway. Okay the room is a little shocking, a lot of bright pink, not a very big room basically it had a ultra comfy king size bed, a desk, a big asscreen tv, and a little couchy type thing by the window and TADA I open the drapes and there is the bellagio fountains and the Eiffel Tower Love that pennyâ€¦â€¦. The closet was nice a big , the safe was locked so we had to wait 20 minutes for maintenance to come and open it. I unpacked and organized. The bathroom was odd. It had a sliding glass door going in to it which didn't quite close all the way, so privacy in the bathroom was at a bare minimum Fine for the 2 of us, but if you had more than that, I think it would be weird. The Bathroom had a tv built in to the mirror, a tub, and a shower with dual nozzlesâ€¦.aaaahhh this door also didn't quite close all the way, so the floor would get kind of wet while you were showering It had a marble countertop and a small basin sink. There wasn't a lot of room on the countertop to put anything and there weren't any hooks, so I found that odd, and the bathrooms needed a little more thought put in to them. The room also had a fridge, coffee pot (only decaf though) and a brown hassock, not sure when you would use this but it was tucked under the counter. So basically within 90 minutes of landing we were all settled in and hitting the casino for our first miller lite of the trip. I write these things down so I can remember, but the paper is in my bag at home still, so I'll try to get thru this first day and finish the rest tomorrow. We hung out at the Flamingo for a couple of rounds and then went to Margaritaville for supper, had to wait 20 minutes, no big deal we order the nachos and 2 mango margaritas, I don't know how anyone could order these Nachos for themselves, we were starving and still only barely put a dent in them. Next we roamed down the strip towards Harrahs and stopped along the way at The Imperial Palace, where the beer is cold and plentiful they still have the best drink service here of all the properties we visited. We gambled for quite awhile no big hits but we weren't getting killed anyway. We basically play slots usually the entertaining penny and 2 cent machines but we'll be swayed towards the dollars and quarters at times. Head back to the Flamingo and the strip was PACKED, you could hardly move and had to walk single file everywhere, I found myseld haning on to hubby's belt loop, so we wouldn't get detached. I'm not a big fan of crowds and was relieved to get back to the Flamingo, where we played out our evening with a few more cocktails, they were coming around quite a bit on this night, it must have been the crowd I finally tapped out around midnight, I had been up for 22 hours , so I was wiped out. Grabbed my last beer and headed up to the room and caught a couple of the fountain shows relaxing in the room Hubby showed up a couple hours later, he had made it up 24 hours, though he did nap a bit on the plane Did a cash count for the day and found out that after all the cabs, drinks, and meals, I was ahead 30 bucks. ( I keep all the spending cash, that way I know I get to eat and drink) Love my Penny!!! The bed was super comfy though they only had 3 pillows and they flattened out pretty fast, I'll have to ask for more in the morning, but til then , I get the extra one, since I came to bed first. I had the air conditioning blowing on my all night, since I couldn't get the vent to redirect, Hubby figured it out the next day. Slept pretty good considering it was blowing on my constantly. Woke up at 7AM and said Hey I'm in Vegas, no time for extra sleep!!! Day 2 coming soonâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.
