Cliched to be sure, but ever so sweet!!!!
Thanks Jay! I’ll give it my best shot.
Beautiful room and view. All I hoped it would be. Walgreens is next and then pool time and frozen drinks.
So looking forward to reading your trip report! Please take pics of the Palazzo casino floor, I’d love to see all of the changes (assuming they’re done remodeling?). Have fun at the pool and win big tonight!
Will do, in depth. Still a little construction but nothing too bad. Pics to follow later tonight or tomorrow. Here’s a teaser.
Great room . Enjoy
Pool was great. Lots of sunburned people out there. All showered up, shaved and ready for dinner.
Agreed Palazzo has a really nice, low-key and relaxing pool area. Glad you enjoyed your time there, MikeO.
Enjoy the pools! I do think the pool areas there are really nice.
Dinner at Black Tap, a new restaurant on the V side of V/P. Great burger and uber thick and tasty shake.
That shake looks goooood
Your trip looks great so far! I read about Black Tap and their amazing shakes. It's on my future to-do list.
Keep up the super pictures!
Love those rooms. Enjoy.
Slots have been wicked and evil.
Some pics of the Palazzo during the final stage of the remodel. Only two areas boarded off, somewhat adjacent, just after you enter the casino from guest registration. I really like the look of it. They’re not too keen on peeps taking pics but if anyone wants a specific pic of something just say the word and I’ll get ‘er done.
Went through about half of my daily BR in about 2 1/2 hours on the slots. Only playing about $1.50-$2.50 per pull but I only got a few bonuses which the largest one was a paltry $51.00. I shudder to think how fast it would have gone had I been playing my normal pulls of about $4.00. Calling it a night gambling wise, I’ve had about six hours of sleep total the last two nights and don’t want to do anything stupid tonight due to “zombieness” (sic) and start out the trip in too big of a hole. Travel days are always brutal on me as far as not being too alert. Going to get a good nights sleep, enjoy the World Cup game tomorrow between Croatia and England and then meet up with @topcard for a great day of BJ and general horseplay at ElCo and all over Fremont St.
Loving the digs at Palazzo. The staff is great, the casino looks really sweet and my room is top shelf. Crappy gambling today but tomorrow is a new day and hey baby......its Vegas so it can’t be too bad of a day at all.
On a side note I had a really cool thing happen at LAS today. I stood right next to Kareem Abdul-Jabber on the people mover on the way to baggage claim. I told him I got his autograph twice, in person, when he played for Milwaukee back in the early 70s. First as Lew Alcindor and then later as Kareem. He could not have been nicer and he even seemed to smile a little bit when we talked about his Milwaukee days. A very memorable ten minutes or so. Another great moment to lock away in the Vegas memory bank.......
Thanks for all the palazzo pics. I see they moved a bank of my favorite WofF machines that used to reside on the corner right near Grand Lux.
Sorry gambling has been a biyatch. Tomorrow is another day!
Pics from about a two minute “strip walk”...lol. Palm tree pics for you @Lady Fortuna. Many, many more strip pics to come.
Goodnight from Las Vegas...
By the way, for Smith & Wollensky lovers I read in the LVR today that they are going to open up a two story restaurant at the Venetian in 2019.
Conversing with Kareem! Awesome stuff
