Long time lurker, seldom poster. More of a summary then anything, but I'll try to hit the High/low lights of it all. 7 couples, no kids. Stayed at the MC this time around (last year was the Mirage and the year before, Rio), 3rd stay as a group, 12th overall for wife/I. Got in on Sunday the 7th and half of us upgraded our rooms to suites for $25 more per night. Too good to pass up and I'm glad I did. HighLights: -Everyone liked the Monte Carlo. For the price, the location, hard to beat. The rooms were clean, in good condition and very nice. The jr. suites were quite nice. -We will Rock You. 3 couples saw it and loved it. I didn't see it, I picked door #2 (Blue Man Group) . -Smith & Wolensky. Wife/I ate there and loved it once again. My Ribeye was awesome and the crabcakes my wife ordered were really good. $120 w/ tip for the 2 of us. -Blackstone. We ate there as a group and we really had a good time. Lots of different meals ordered then dessert. Everyone passed around/shared their dessert and wow, was it good! I had the prime rib and liked it. No complaints from anyone in the group! Cost w/ tip was $80 per person. -NineFineIrishmen. We went there twice after 9pm when the band plays. If you like Irish music and drinking Guiness, then this is the place for you. One of our favorites and we are never disappointed. -Dueling Pianos at NY NY. Again, went as a group and enjoyed ourselves. I'd rather go to 9FineIrishmen myself and listen to that music (i can only listen to so much billy joel or Elton John), but as a group, it was fun. -ESPNZone. Got our $20 vouches, ate, then played their mini bowling game upstairs. It was a good afternoon diversion. -MonteCarlo BrewPub. Great beer, good food. We met there every night to plan our evening. -The Weather. Only in the 90s there, infact one day, high was 86. Great for walking the strip! -CVS. The place to go avoid paying high prices for soda, tea, water, etc. LowLights: BlueManGroup. 6 of us went to see it. 4 hated it (me included) and 2 loved it. I would say the crowd was the same way. Some people were laughing others just sat there thinking, I paid how much for this? I liked EFx & Chicago when they played in Vegas, and thought Momma Mia was "OK", but this was just awful. Maybe as a $20 afternoon show.... MonteCarlo Pool. I can't say it was a lowlight, but, comparing it to the Mirage pools or even Rio, it came up short. A bit too small and crowded with lots of kids. Wave pool was broke last 2 days. The lazy river is nice, but pretty crowded. Rooms at MonteCarlo. I said I enjoyed upgrading to a suite and I really did, BUT, I could hear our neighbors. We had a door that would connect us to the next room and thats where all the noise came from. Twice our neighbors came back at 3:30 a.m. and woke us up. We could hear every word they said. Luckily, there either passed out or went to bed and this only happened twice. None of the other 6 couples had any problems. I would stay here again.
