    Helicopter tour was UNREAL. Best $100 I've ever spent on anything. Sundance Helicopters was the operator in case you're curious. Could not recommend this experience more highly.

    Just sipping on a comp cocktail at Lily lounge (MyVegas comp) as I wait for the strip club limo to pick me up from the Bellagio.

    This does not taste like a $20 cocktail. I've drank at Lily before and was not impressed at all. Sadly, this experience only reinforced that impression.

    In the limo now. Won't have much to post from inside the strip club, naturally. But I'll do what I can.

    Little Darlings definitely met my expectations. Didn't exceed them. But didn't fall below them by any means, and that's something I really respect.

    The cold, harsh reality is that it's pretty much the Chuck E Cheese of strip clubs. No alcohol served, nothing costs that much, it's not known as the kind of place where employees make a lot of money, and you don't have to be 21 to get in.

    Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not. Part of what I dislike about regular strip clubs anywhere is that you get pretty much shamed into buying a drink at a pace that feels like every ten minutes. All of the interactions are built around "how can I separate your money from you somehow?", and it just feels very dehumanizing. I didn't feel that way at all at Little Darlings. It did come with some minor tradeoffs, but overall I enjoyed myself and would definitely come back.

    One memorable part of this place is the restroom. That layout of sinks is in a common area in front of the men's and women's rooms, and the attendant looks after everyone's handwashing just like a bartender. I normally reject the idea of bathroom attendants, but this is one where I had no problem using their services (and, of course, tipping).

    My step counter has me at over 40,000 steps since I got in on Tuesday night. That's more than I do in some weeks!

    Off to bed now. Going to have some tacos at Pepe's again before I head off, but aside from that, I'm afraid my Vegas trip report ends here.

    Thanks for following along everybody!

    Jealous of the helo ride, I've always wanted to do that, but need to drop a couple pounds before they'll let me fly, according to the rules I see :)

    Looks like a great time from dinner to the helo tour to the adult entertainment portion of the night. Props for doing Vegas right!

    Did Little Darlings send their limo to you and was your cover waived? Just wondering how it works there for a solo guy.

    They sent their limo to me, and with the voucher from the website I paid a reduced $15 cover. No seams whatsoever for me as a solo visitor.

    Didn't have time to go to Pepe's, sadly. So I dreaded having to eat at the airport. Turns out, it wasn't too bad after all.

    Right near gate D17 in Terminal 1 is Wolfgang Puck Express. Which totally sounds like some microwave-cooking celebrity-chef-branded bullshit, right?

    Wrong. I was delighted to see that they had a wood-burning pizza oven (I don't eat pizza made any other way). So I couldn't resist. Had the mushroom pizza with brie, red onions, arugula, and truffle oil. Tasted great, and $13.99 cost about the same as a regular wood oven pizza anywhere else.

    Just waiting at the gate now. Flight is delayed by 20 minutes, and I can't help but think that I could have gone to Pepe's after all. Oh well.

    I've added up my walking distance for this trip, and my mind is just blown to see that I did about 40,000 steps in just 59 hours and 20 minutes.

    Adding to the amazement, I've slept a total of exactly ELEVEN hours over the past three days. I'll be sleeping like a baby on my way back home tomorrow morning, and once I get home from work Saturday night, I'm going to fully KO. I've never looked forward so much to sleeping in my life.

    Exhausted just reading this. LOL. Thanks for sharing. Be careful with the fidget spinner at the table, unless you are using it as a card protector. Very easy to develop a tell without knowing it.

    Thanks for the shot of the Fantasy Theater. I'm doing the MyVegas comp next month and it helps me figure out the seating.

    Chicken Fried Steak at Longhorn? I'm in.

    AWESOME TRIP AND PIX DUDE!
