Las Vegas Trip Report: Tuesday Nov. 10 - Saturday Nov 14 Day 1: Tuesday November 10, 2009 MIL & FIL arrived around 10:30 am (drove ~5 hrs to get to us) and will be taking care of my 3 kidlets, 1 dog, and 2 cats. No family close by and they have always been there for us to help out. We are all packed, ready to go, carry-ons only. Head to the airport around 2:30pm to catch our 4:15pm flight. All goes well, we arrive at McCarran/LAS. While we are walking to baggage claim / arrivals the @&*#* Limo driver calls, 1/2 spoiling the surprise for my wife. He didn't follow the directions given and even had my name spelled wrong on the card. Either way, it was still a surprise to DW as she thought we were taking a Shuttle. We arrived at TI around 6pm and very short line, only ~4 party’s in front of us. I had my $20 sandwich ready and I just so happen to get the guy right next to the Manager. I hand my ID but hold back on the rest of the sandwich, when manager walked away, I asked for any complementary upgrades and got a Petite Suite (two baths, whirlpool tub, king bed, couch/hide-a-bed, table, tv, desk, iHome dock/alarm) - was nice and right off the elevator on the 28th floor. We gave up the 31st floor dual-queen & strip view for the King. Out our window we could see Trump tower, Circus-Circus, and the Stratosphere . We went to Kahunaville and sat in the bar area for dinner and had BOGO cocktail coupons. Place was just ok and food was just ok. I see why they were giving away coupons for 20% off dinner of BOGO drinks. Better when live band is playing and bartenders are showing off. We did get a nice picture of us there by the Photographers and did give in to purchase. I did chew them down on price and had them through in the extra picture - why not - they already printed them and had in frame. They want to sell them, they will drop price. After dinner we watched Sirens from the TI VIP section, right in front of the ship, The Song. WOW - those flames are HOT (and the Sirens weren't bad either). It was hard to see Capt. Mac's ship,The Bull, but would catch it another night. After Sirens Show we wandered around a bit, ended up at Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville for a beer & margarita and listened to a live band play. We walked through Harrahs to check out the Dueling Piano bar. We listened from the outside for 20 minutes and decided we would come back another night as they were really good. By this time, we have been up for ~20 hours and were ready to crash.
