    My Trip Report

    So my son turned 21 in June and his present was a Vegas Visit. We arrived yesterday (July 4th.) We landed just after 1 pm and immigration was empty and luggage was quickly off the carousel.
    We got a cab to The D, we checked in but the room wasn't ready so we dropped luggage at the bell desk and Jnr had his first drink in Vegas at The D.

    Then a walk over to Toy Shack and sports memorabilia shop. The guy who played the kid in The Munsters was at Toy Shack.
    We walked along Fromont Street and had drinks in Golden Gate before going back to The D to get took keys.

    The Evening seen us stay Downtown, the plan was to do the VMB but with getting behind I had to miss out. We went over to EL Cortez before going over to The Fremont then the D where I met up with a mate of mine who was flying back on Friday. We ended the night at Golden Nugget.

    Some say the kid's not been to Vegas before, some say his he can't be as famous as his dad; all we know is he is called Stig Junior. Enjoy guys, looking forward to some great stories.

    Sorry I'm missing darts. I played in a league what seemed like 100 years ago. I still have my flights but they are probably dust about now.

    Father/son trip is always the best. Is this his first time in Vegas at all or only legal? What are his impressions.

    I laughed at the Munster's guy. I bet he never thought he could milk a small roll as a kid all the way through retirement.

    Best wishes for wins and bonding.

    Darts was great and all games were close, after that we walked down to the Las Vegas sign. Seemed quicker walking back than going. Currently in Ri Ra for some food.

    After Ri Ra we walked through Luxor and Excsliber. Went over to MGM then NYNY, through Park MGM to Aria and ended up in Twin Peaks eventually. A walk through PH then a drink a Gustevs Bar in Paris. Walked through Ballys and ended up on the Linq.

    A zipline and a band playing on a stage, it's a wonder nobody has ever thought of that before now. Had some drinks in Tilted Kilt then moved to O'Sheas before finishing the night in Tuscany and then Lyft back Downtown.

    Today started in The D before a walk over to Main Street Station then over to Hogs and Heifers. A bit of an eye opener got junior, the girls in there are so entertaining and it's such a laugh.

    In the D at moment but shortly going over yo Wynn to watch Robbie Williams.

    Have a great time at the Robbie Williams show, @The Stig.
    I would love to have seen him in that venue.

    In the evening we went to the Wynn to watch Robbie Williams, what a great show, I really enjoyed it. He is a top showman. After the show we went over to Tilted Kilt for food and a few drinks. Got Lyft back Downtown where junior went to bed and I headed up to Golden Gate then finished in The D.

    Today started at The D before going over to EL Cortez. I haven't played for a long time in there and I didn't know I had $55 comp on my players card. Not a wining day there and they now have the light system on bar top machines. Currently in Golden Gate.

    Enjoy the time with your son! I took my daughter for her first Vegas trip. And she and I still do a yearly casino week together. So much fun!

    Last night was a long stint, we headed down to the Strip and went in Tilted Kilt for some food and a few drinks. Then over to O' Shea's for a few more drinks. We then went over to Platinum Club before finishing the night in Tuscany. We got back to The D about 4.30 am.

    So junior was not so good today, I left him in his room and went playing VP in El Cortez, didn't do so good though. Next call was Golden Gate for a few beers then back to The D where junior now feeling better. The plan is back on the Strip tonight.
