    My Trip Report

    Thought I would post a link to the Vlog I made while in Vegas last week. It is mostly some photos that I made into a little montage with canned music and some occasional video mixed in along the way. Each day also has a short introduction.

    In addition, just a few general notes. Didn't seem overly crowded, even on Friday and Saturday nights. Downtown was pretty boisterous on Thursday but there was a concert at the Events center so I am guessing that is why.

    Mostly enjoyed the Cromwell though the clientele is an interesting mix and some can be a bit obnoxious. Good drink service in the casino most days. Room a little dark and I found the shower confusing but generally comfortable. I spent a quite a bit of time next door at the Flamingo and I am guessing it was quicker getting there than it would have been from a room over there.

    Enjoyed my day Downtown and thought the Design a Suite at the El Cortez was a very cool room, particularly for the price. Mostly played there and at the D. Tried Evel Pie and it hit the spot with its greasy goodness. Finally went to Atomic Liquors and it was a cool place.

    Gambling was up and down with no big wins. It did seem like I got quite a bit more play for my money on this trip than back in January so I was fairly happy. All the halfway decent wins are in the daily vlog.

    So check it out if you like. There's nothing too exciting but maybe just a bit of vicarious Vegas if you need a little fix tonight!

    Thanks for taking the time to make these Vlogs. I enjoyed watching them. I felt your pain when you said you took the deuce downtown.
