Saturday â€“ Got into LAS and waited around for an hour or so until the gfâ€™s flight came in. From there we headed right to the Palms (where we were staying). Well at 12:30pm the room wouldnâ€™t quite be ready so we decided weâ€™d go to the Mexican restaurant and have some apps and drinks and play some video BJ and poker. So after getting a nice buzz and having some food, our room was ready. I have to say the Palms does have THE nicest most comfortable beds in LV!! We were on the 5th floor facing the Rio. Not a bad view, although the lights that shine on the Palms were right outside our window, so if you left the curtains open just a tad the room would change colors . So after taking a short restâ€¦ we got ready and left for the Bellagio to Circo for dinner. Dinner wasnâ€™t spectacular but not bad. She loved the view (this being her first time to Vegas and all) and enjoyed her dinner. **Sidenote â€“ I live in Chicago, her Long Island so this night was planned as a belated Vday** After dinner, we gambled a bit, I lost $150 in BJ, she won $200 in $1 slots and then we went on to the next part of the night. At 8:00pm I had a limo waiting out front for a 1 hour tour of the strip. She was in awe of this and said no one had ever put much thought into any gifts for her. So off we were in the limo and took a tour of the strip. She loved all of it and it was exciting to see a Vegas Virginâ€™s reaction to all the different sites/hotels, made me appreciate it all again. So after the trip we were supposed to head to Venetian but the alcohol/jet lag/ time difference kicked in and we headed back to the Palms. Well the hour nap we had hoped for turned into staying in for the night and night one was complete! Sunday â€“ Today started with a excellent breakfast downstairs at the Palms, decided to play a little BJ after breakfast, well wasnâ€™t THAT the wrong time to do that. The dealer was horrible, the players at the table didnâ€™t have a clue. Now I donâ€™t mind a player asking what to do every now and then (Iâ€™ve done it before) but to ask EVERY single handâ€¦ what should I doâ€¦ even when itâ€™s a pair of Aces and the table was a $20 limit. So then one of the players asks the dealer, â€œHey do you know how they play with the chips and have the 2 stacks and push them together?â€ and the dealer AFTER dealing the first card says, â€œOh yeahâ€ and he takes a stack of $1â€™s out and starts to show him. HELLO!!! I have $50 on this hand (even though I should have left already) and heâ€™s going to show them how to play with chips!! I thought it was illegal for dealers to touch the chips but Iâ€™m not sure. Anyways, that was the end of that I had had it and left, down another $150. So later we head on over to Caesars, show her the forum shops and what not and we went to Cheescake factory for dinner, good times/food/drinks. After dinner we met up with my friends that drove down from CA for the weekend. Man we had a blast just hanging out having a couple of drinks. It was just some little lounge type bar (Seahorse maybe) but we had a lot of fun! So the bar was closing down and we decided to head back home and grab some zzzâ€™s Monday â€“ Monday morning came and today I thought was going to be a good dayâ€¦ just a had a feeling about it, spent some of the day on and off gambling. Gfâ€™s friend was in town so we went to get In and Out Burger with her ( the Midwest really needs In and Out, itâ€™s be a big money maker). After dinner we went back to the Palms, I played some more BJ, $100 inâ€¦ about 2 hours later $200 out.. nothing big but it was a win none the less. So we had some more drinks and played some other slots, and by then it had gotten a little late (yeah I know big partiers we are, but we only see each other once a month so we tend to relax and hang out instead of going to crazy places where we canâ€™t hear each other). Tuesday â€“ Gfâ€™s friend is moving out to Vegas and wants to show her the apartment sheâ€™s getting. They want girl time aloneâ€¦fine with me time to GAMBLE!! So she leaves to check out the apt and I head to the BJ tableâ€¦ I start on a nice little roll, building a decent pile of green in front of me when this little man sits down next to me. Now Iâ€™m pretty sure heâ€™s counting cards, because every time the dealer gets to him he stops, looks around and decides what to do. Now a couple of times he had some questionable callsâ€¦ holding on a 15 when dealer shows a 10 and so onâ€¦ but this one REALLY got to me. The dealer is showing a 10 of clubsâ€¦ she deals him a 5 and a 3â€¦ totals 8â€¦. He looks around and HOLDS!! Huh? What? Youâ€™re holding on an 8? Why? Well one of the guys at the table just goes off on him and takes his chips and leavesâ€¦ the thing is I hit twice on 12 and 16 and ended up with a 19 and in the end dealer busted. Weird overall play but whatever! So the gf is about to be back so I decide to color outâ€¦ $675!! NICE! Later that day she hit $1 slots for $300, and $200 so it turned out to be a good gambling day! That night we headed out to Margaritaville over at Flamingoâ€¦ yeah we hit the chain restaurants I know.. but it was good, after that we went over to my favorite bar ( and a lot of peopleâ€™s here) Carnival Courtâ€¦ 2 HOT female bartenders even the gf said, she wanted to bring them back and all the flipping of everything is just so entertaining. Plus they had an 80â€™s coverband playingâ€¦ good times! Met some fun people around us and had a blast! Overall, one of the more quieter trips to Vegas for me, usually go with my buddies, but it was a GREAT GREAT time. Even if it did rain everyday. The trip but the vegas bug back in me though and I have to go back this year now! Sorry if I rambled on but thought some of ya may like a report!
