Fact: Gambling at the Strat. Mr V went to get his new card and I looked and looked and finally found him here:
Fact - more gambling
Fact - up to the 107 floor for happy hour
Fact - after happy hour we went up to the observation deck. It was raining but no snow
Fact - they had a really cool interactive map up there
Fact - last picture from the observation floor
Day 3 – continued:
Fact: The Hoover Dam Lodge no longer has bingo as of 2 weeks ago.
Fact: This altered our plans for the day, so no free doughnuts for us at early bird bingo therefore we stopped at the Klondike Sunset Casino in Henderson and ate at Sarah’s Kitchen. The service & food was good, don’t think it took 5 min for food to come out after ordering. The best thing about - it was cheap. Next we headed to the Clark County Museum and spent 2 fun hrs exploring. The cost was $2.00 per person - worth it at double the price I would say. Must thank NFC for the idea from his TR awhile back. Then we headed to the STRAT for 2 comped nights. Check-in was very easy and fast, the room is nice and the overall look of the casino and other areas is greatly improved. The restaurant selection is good – they all look to be new. We ate at BLVD & MAIN. We split chicken wings and loaded tater tots - both were pretty good, not a very eclectic beer selection but I found a Hefewiesen called BAD BEAT and it was very good. They did not have GRAIN BELT here either. Where is a beer aficionado got to go to find a GRAIN BELT in LAS VEGAS? Then I took a nap and Mrs V uploaded pictures. After nap time we headed down to the casino for a little slotting. It started out bad - lost 40 on HIGH VOLTAGE then another 20 on SONS OF ANARCHY and then another 20 on DRAGON LINK. At this point my biggest win was $6.53 and no bonus rounds. Was about to give up when I decided to play a WHEEL OF FOURTUNE at $5.00 a spin and hit for $80.00 and I’m back just like that. Next we headed over to FARMVILLE and gave $20.00 back then I saw a DANCING DRUMS with a foo pot that looked full so I played for an hour and never won the foo pot but did finish up $110.00 from hitting DANCING DRUM bonuses. That made the afternoon more fun. Starting to feel a little peckish again so we headed up to the 107 Skylounge for drinks and appetizers – found out it was Happy Hour. Mrs V had 2 Angry Orchards and I had a Hendricks and tonic. We split chicken wings and truffle fries – the food up at the 107 Skylounge was ok but nothing to brag about. Afterwards Mrs V took some pic’s on floors 108 & 109 and then headed to the casino for a little vp and I wrote this up.
UPDATE: Mrs V finished $11 ahead on DDB at the Remix lounge after playing for a couple of hours. She had a couple Bacardi dt cokes and a Colorado Bulldog and grabbed some bottles of water. Fun, fun, fun for a couple of hours with no loss. Mr V went to find her after the internet mysteriously stopped working. He went in search of treasures to take home, then played Individual Bubble Craps and finished that ahead a couple bucks, then tried to play real craps and one table was a CRAPLESS CRAPS table and the other table had a newbie and higher limit then preferred. So he took his chips and went to a Black Jack table with a $5 limit. Mr V finished ahead $20 and scored a $1chip for his collection to boot . The Aces that came out – oh my. Then Mr & Mrs V went to Nunzio’s Pizzeria on the 2nd level and he got a slice of pepperoni & sausage with a rootbeer and Mrs V got a slice of pepperoni. It was OK if a little blah.
