Just got into town. Taking some risks on this trip. Risk 1 - Fly Spirit Airlines. Risk 2 - Stay at Luxor Decided to stay at Luxor because there was a cheap 2-night comp on MyVegas. Spirit was the only cheap flight that worked. Got to O'hare, went through security, got to the gate and saw an email that my flight was going to be late. Standard Spirit. Stopped at an airport bar and ordered a beer. That made things better. Went back to the gate and saw people deplaning. Hour delay was now 20 minute delay. ...and the doors opened and they started boarding. Pulled away from the gate only 5 minutes late --- and bonus, the captain said the flight would be 30 minutes shorter than scheduled due to favorable winds. Landed 25 minutes early. WIN Took Lyft to hotel. Quick and relatively cheap. Nice driver. Check in at Luxor. Clerk says he is giving me a complimentary upgrade to a Tower room. Nothing special, but better than the standard Pyramid room I booked. WIN The one thing I really noticed is that the south strip closes early. The Excal food court closed, restaurants, bars, all closed by 1 am. Ended up going to Cosmo for Secret Pizza and playing a bit. Amazing drink service while playing. ...and some wins. Tomorrow going downtown to see them take down Vegas Vickie. (but she will return) ...and there will be pictures.
