I had so much fun on my December trip to Treasure Island that I decided to stay there again. I came home with plenty of their money, so I booked the soonest days I could take off work. I took them up on an offer for one free night and one night at $59 with no resort fees. I got lucky and found a cheap $130 round-trip ticket on Southwest that worked with those dates. My flight out of Denver was delayed, after boarding, due to a mechanical issue found during the preflight check. Sat on the plane at the gate for 30 minutes, then unloaded everything and went to another gate and boarded a new plane. Finally we were in the air almost two hours past our 3:05 scheduled departure. When we landed in Vegas, we were obviously late so there was no gate open for us. We had to sit on the runway for another 45 minutes before our gate opened up. Off to a rough start, but thankfully everything went smoothly after that. After a quick Lyft ride on the surface streets, I finally got checked into Treasure Island around 9:00 pm. Standard King room with a freeway view. I did request and get a room on the 28th floor though. I think that the elevator situation is a little better for floors 25-32. Always seem to have a shorter wait for the elevators that service those floors. The standard room was fine. It was clean and well maintained. I prefer their Petite Suite to their regular rooms, but this was a solo trip, and I wasn’t planning on being in the room much. At this point it was way past dinner time, and I was very hungry. I was planning on dinner at Delmonico steakhouse, but it was too late for that--I needed food soon! There was no line for the TI coffee shop, so I grabbed a quick meal there. I got the bone-in New York steak; it’s not steakhouse quality, but not bad for a hotel coffee shop either. I’ve had this meal here before, and sadly it wasn’t as good as the last time. With a couple of beers and some food in my belly, I was happy, relaxed, and ready to gamble! Off to the casino to find some Buffalo slots to play, but first a stop at the Breeze bar for another Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I found an unoccupied Buffalo Gold slot and put some money in. After just a few bets I hit a bonus round and ended up winning $90. A short time later I won another $60. These and a few other smaller wins kept me playing late into the night. None of the other wins were more than $20. Drink Service was pretty good for TI, and I actually had a few “free” Coronas while playing. I did have to purchase a few beers at the Breeze Bar to keep up the drinking pace I wanted. After the Buffalo sucked up most of the night’s bankroll, I switched to some lower volatility slots. Had a few more small hits, but all those beers started getting to me and I was feeling tired. I hit my bed around 3:30, where I instantly fell asleep. I slept great in TI’s super comfy king bed. Got out of bed around 9:00, took a quick shower, and walked over to the Mirage for breakfast at Carnegie Deli. I love this place! I had chicken noodle soup and corned beef hash for breakfast. The food was excellent. Way more than I could eat though; I finished the soup, but the portion of corned beef hash was enormous! After eating my huge breakfast, I waddled around the Mirage for a bit. Played some random games, but didn’t win anything at all there. The tram between Mirage and Treasure Island is closed temporarily, but it is a very short walk between the two places if you head out of the Valet area at TI and go up Siren’s Cove drive toward Mel Torme Way. At Mel Torme Way you turn toward the Mirage and arrive at its rear entrance a short distance away. You actually cross under and walk along the tramway on this route. After leaving the Mirage I crossed over to Harrah’s and then on to the Linq, Flamingo, Cromwell, and Bally’s. I didn’t play any games at these places, but I stopped here and there for drinks to quench my thirst along the way. It was 86 degrees, after all. I had fun just people-watching and sightseeing, going places I don’t usually visit. I had not been inside of Bally’s or the Flamingo in many years. I’m still not impressed with either one. After Bally’s I crossed over to Bellagio. I wanted to check out the conservatory, but it was too crowded for my taste, so I moved along pretty quickly without even taking pictures. I was starting to get hungry again, so I headed over to the Cosmopolitan to check things out and grab a slice at Secret Pizza.
