Ok, Iâ€™m still upset about the whole point thing and havenâ€™t had a chance to contact the Mirage, but you can bet I am going to as soon as I have some time â€“ should I e-mail a casino host, call or snail mail it?? I forgot to tell you about a lady dealer we had at the Mirage night#2, she was so unprofessional all I could do was laugh. She kept talking about how fast she ate on her lunch and how she felt sick with gas â€“ she had to burp or pukeâ€”she really said exactly that. She kept bugging the host to have the server get her some sprite. It was so annoying because she was whining and could not deal and talk at the same time so she kept on holding the cards and stopping. My husband was so mad, we left. Trip Report Part II: I think I stopped on Day 3. We didnâ€™t do too much during this day. We walked around and had lunch again at Stage Deli. My husband got the hot dog again (which is HUGE!) and I got the Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwich. 3 Big pieces overloaded with Cheese and really good grilled ham on sourdough. I donâ€™t think our meals there ever went over $20 at one time for both of us. Great quality food, great service and great prices. Prior to eating, my husband had bought a pricey cigar for his boss from the Fuente (sp?) shop in the Caesars mall. We had it in a bag on our table in the deli. About an hour and a half later we were down in Ballyâ€™s and realized that he left it on the table. Our waitress, Gloria was a sweetheart and held it for us. When we came to get it at the end of the day, she refused to take a $5 tip from us for her help. My husband was so relieved to get it back! We did a lot of casino hopping that dayâ€¦won at â€œhit and runâ€ slotsâ€¦. $30 here, $40 there etc. Although we were eating and buying souvenirs, the money in our pocket never went under what we walked out of the room with that morning. The coolest thing happened (well, I think it is). There are 2 of those HUGE $1 slot machines sitting in the passageway between Paris and Ballyâ€™s. My husband said, â€œI have a $1, Iâ€™m just going to put it in one and see what happens.â€ I was giving him a hard time because I told him those never hit and that they are for suckers. Well, he puts $1 in the machine and takes the pull. It is a five-symbol slot and max play is $5â€¦..well, I wish he had put in $5 max because he hit a few symbols and then we started hearing dollar coins start falling into the metal tray. He won $60. Not much, but winning $59 off of $1 on one pull is luck for us. It drew the attraction of so many others, but I donâ€™t think it hit for them. There were no buckets around so we scooped the coins up in our shirts and cashed them in. We went to the Wax Museumâ€¦.it was OK. It was neat to get pictures with all of the â€œstarsâ€ but I thought it was not worth the money. I DO NOT do haunted houses so the â€œMonsterâ€™s Aliveâ€ portion of the exhibit was out of the question for me. It literally only took us 10-15 minutes to walk through, way too short for the admission price. We have a wax museum here in the Dallas area that is almost 50% less to get in and it is huge. I think that is what I was expecting. Most of the day was a blur, we didnâ€™t do muchâ€¦.just hung out. We did eat dinner at Caribe cafÃ© inside of the Mirage â€“ it was yucky. I donâ€™t recommend that restaurant at all. Extremely slow service and the food isnâ€™t so good. That night things seemed to pick up for us. We came back to the hotel after our day completely even in money. It was nice after losing so much on the first day. Then we decided to play some Blackjack. I made a revelation that night. Single Deck BJ is my game. I did so much better at SD then at the shoe. I think itâ€™s just better oddsâ€¦maybe I am wrong but it seemed that way anyway. And another thing I realized is that I cannot play at the same table as my husband. We are terrible luck together. I was winning at this one table and as soon as he sat down at the same table, I started losing. Both myself AND the dealer told him that he better leave and go to another table!! It actually turned out to be ok because he won about $400 at this other table off of a $40 buy in. The lady dealer at my table was talking about another dealer that works there and telling everyone at our table (which was full) what an A$$ he was and he was Fing-this and Fing-thatâ€¦.she was even saying these things to the host on the floor. I was wondering how she could get away with talking that way in front of guestsâ€¦ I lost my hundred quickly because most of it was gone before he went to the other table. I got another $100 from my hubby and thought I would try the slotsâ€¦.lost $18 and cashed out. I took the remainder to a SD BJ table that was open. I ended up playing at that table for about 4 hours. I only walked away winning about $100 off of my initial buy in, but my husband found another table and walked away from it with another $400 as well. We were doing good. We had awesome, friendly dealers and really nice table partners too. One lady entered in with $30 and walked away with almost $330. I was helping her as she had not played before ever! Beginners luck! One guy came in with $200 and was making huge bets. He left the table with almost 3K. At one point I got up and left when newbies at the table started playing against basic strategy, causing me to loose hands that I would not have lost if they were playing right. That really pisses me off. So I took a potty break, checked on my husband and came back when I saw they were gone. We were having slower-than-Christmas cocktail serviceâ€¦.one of the dealers told me that if we wanted drinks then we better call a stretcher for the waitress because she was so oldâ€¦..that was so wrong, but already with a buzz, I laughed! We were up until around 4am and my husband had to peel me away from the table. It was a good night, we were happy! The final day our flight was scheduled at 845pm. With all of the talk about security lines, we decided to go early just in case. So, most of the morning and early afternoon was running around crazy getting last minute souvenirs. I tried a Tangerine Frappucino at Starbucks â€“ almost better than sex â€“ turned $100 into $200 in less than 5 minutes at SD Blackjack at MGM $25 bets, and right before we left for the airport my husband made another $275 at Mirage SD BJ $25 bets and I won $150 at a different table. We were going home with money and that is all I cared about! We got to the airport early (430pm!) and NO LINE AT ALL!! We literally got through in about 7 minutes from check in through security! We were so pissed. We ate at Chiliâ€™s and had the slowest server known to manâ€¦.not that it mattered because our flight was still HOURS away. The flight home was quite bumpy and I got a little nervous. I really had to pee and couldnâ€™t hold it anymore so I got up and went to the back lavatory. The male flight attendant YELLS at me â€œIf weâ€™re not up, then YOU shouldnâ€™t be up either!â€ He grabs the microphone and yells into the intercom â€œNobody should be out of their seats!!â€ I was so embarrassed. I told him that I was sick and that I wouldâ€™ve been glad to throw up in the seat however I didnâ€™t think the person sitting next to us wouldâ€™ve appreciated it much. I wasnâ€™t really sick, but I was so mad at the guy for being a jerk! Our flight got into Dallas at around 130AM and I couldnâ€™t believe our long awaited trip was over. Back to reality. We are planning to go back for my birthday in Feb. We will probably not stay at the Mirage this time due to their poor customer service. I would like to stay at the Wynn, but canâ€™t afford it! I havenâ€™t paid for a hotel room in Vegas since 2001. Oh, I guess weâ€™ll seeâ€¦.
