I should have posted this a while ago, but never got to it. First time for me and my husband in 25 years...we'd both been there before we were married during trips from east to west. We stayed at Caesars. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the changes in Las Vegas, and it took us a day and a half to get used to the city. It really freaked me out and I am not easily freaked. Anyway, Caesars is nice and the shops are incredible, but I want to know who has all the money to shop at those stores? By the second night we were feeling the groove, and went across the street to the Flamingo. My husband went to a table, and I played the slots. When we finally met up, he told me he had won $1500 with four tens. Whoo hoo. We go to Atlantic City a few times a year and he never wins so we were really psyched. So we liked the Flamingo a lot. The next night we had tickets to see Kenny Rogers at the Hilton, and enjoyed him very much...afterward my husband plays let it ride again and wins $1000 with four Aces. It was incredible. He got a yellow chip, which I never knew existed. Too funny. We went downtown, and I liked it there a lot. I love the Golden Nugget, we ate at the Italian restaurant there and it was absolutely delicious. I recommend it to anyone. Fine dining and worth every penny. I really enjoyed Fitzgeralds and Binions...it was the night before St. Patricks day so it was a whole lot of fun. Won some, lost some...but the stakes were low and we had money so who cared?! Vegas is one unbelievable city...I'm still shaking my head over it all. I'm afraid if we go back someone will have to stamp "Going to Hell" on my forehead because it truly is the city of excess. But it's fun.
