    My Trip Report

    Well time to start the trip report.

    Started off rough. SWA did not have any agents at the gate at DTW until 4am. The line was horrendous . eventually 4am it started moving and we skipped to the bag tag kiosks because we already had boarding passes.

    With that down we went to our gate and almost borded a plane to BWI. Opps.

    Flight to Denver was uneventful.

    The flight from Denver to Las Vegas was delayed because we had to return to the gate because a guy decides his music was more important than than the flight attendant's Instructions. Kinda wrong time to pull that shit.

    I fell asleep before launch and did not even know that we took off until we began drink service .

    After landing we we grabbed an explorer SUV. We might go drive up ash canyon. I have been told there are lots of big Horn sheep there .

    Stopped in got a room on the 25th floor facing Paris. We have not been there. We went to keno dropped 10 and won 2 lol.

    Then to the diamond lounge were we still are so drunk I don't know how I will get my luggage to the room.

    We have been here for 3 hours waiting for hot food. How lame am I?

    Not sure the food will be worth the wait. But, you are in Vegas and have drinks in hand. Sounds like you are off to a good start. Look forward to the rest.

    Have a great trip! I'll be following along!

    Re SWA - I had a 5:30 am flight one morning. Got to McCarran at 3:45 and also had to wait until 4 AM for any gate agents. Even the kiosks were not online yet. Blah!

    Yeah, that was totally NOT my choice. My January trip, I had a flight home scheduled for Friday at 6 PM. Planned to have most of the day in Vegas. 10 PM on Thursday I get the notice that my flight was canceled because of storms heading into the area. By the time I got into my SWA app, the ONLY flight left for Friday was the 5:30 AM one. UGH!! Yeah, that totally sucked!!

    You want to see my hand what ?!?! Pics. Oh none yet

    We met a couple from Colorado while consuming too many margaritas in the DL. They were going to come south point with us last night if they flight was cancelled. It was only delayed so we went alone.

    Crashed in the room and slept til 9pm cause will I am more than double the drinking age and drank like it was 21st bday. Getting up was tough but SP at 1am is our thing.

    We were immediately recognized by Amy one of the staff at the bingo. She even know most of our card order. It has only been 6 months. :wiggle:

    We both bought in to the bingo session there for $59 bucks and I won't a 2x line for $100 and split a 9block for $34. She got nil.

    There were 6 young Asian girls sitting near the caller and that group won 3 or 4 times and their winning was so joyful and infectious. You really had to smile. Rivaled and craps game.

    Played some slots and lost it. We're down a bit but nothing really. Budget is still healthy.

    I just got the strap on my wife favourite cross body purse she uses here and strap broke on the way to the truck again. Turns out it is shoddy Coach materials and not my guy. :nono:
    . It was the other one .

    We drive down to the clown to see the lights cuz we arrived during the day. We did not hire the $5 hooker in the clown parking lot.

    Back to ballys and to bed after losing some more on the machines.

    I have been up since 7am since my body is on East coast time.

    Sorry for any bad grammar or spelling posting from my phone.

    Call 702 967 4719 to get your reservation. It is the direct line. Even though OpenTable says there are no reservations they can sometimes still get you in. They did for me. And then move my time up when I asked.

    Yes it was quite sweet. You have to be very careful though. They out out too many in each serving platter. They sit too long and get very tough. My 1st was like that but #2 and #3 were quite good. The same goes for the fillet. The 1st was perfect rare the last was Nell done and rough. I did not eat it.

    The bloody Mary bar look interesting but my champaign glass always seemed to be full so drank and drank that.

    So...you had three lobster tails and at least two fillets?

    Do they not put any per person limits on?

    Pics look great!
