    My Trip Report

    Just a few bullet points on my recent trip.

    Luxor, August 3-8.

    • They finally cleaned the outside of the pyramid - at least 3 of the sides, one looked about 1/2 done
    • Top Golf: Highly recommend it
    • Walburgers: I give it a 7 on a 1-10 scale.
    • Finally rode the High Roller, we were in the All You Can Drink Pod. About 30 folks were in the Pod with one bartender. My first thought was she's not going to keep up... She did - nobody had a problem getting a drink. Drinking aside it was a pretty cool ride.
    • Rain on Day 2. It was cool watching it come down as I was riding the bike in the Luxor Gym
    • Gym - I actually worked out 4 of the 5 days I was there. 20 years ago on my first Vegas trip I thought people working out during a Vegas vacation were wasting their time. Vegas changes and so do we!
    • Uber and Lyft - why did it take me so long to finally use it???? a cab ride to Fremont used to cost anywhere from low 30s up to almost 40 bucks. Lyft: $16.44 there and $14.50 back... I'll never ride another Vegas cab again.
    • Seafood Risotto at the Oyster Bar in Harrah's is still the best.
    • Lot's of fun with the family - lot's of gambling - lost a few hundred but as always it was another fantastic trip!
    Next scheduled trip is almost 10 months out - that's longer than my usual 4-5 months between trips but this next one might be an entire week... we'll see, it's still early so I might sneak in one quickie before June... until then I have VMB for my Vegas fix!

    I'm glad they cleaned the exterior of the Pyramid. I thought I was the only one who thought it was overdue. They gotta clean the outside of the MGM too.

    I have to try that Oyster bar at Harrahs.

    Glad you and your family had a great time! Losing a few hundred after lots of gambling is a win to me!

    Thanks for posting.

    They have beer, but it's a relatively limited variety.

    they had about 5 different beers and she also made about a half dozen different mixed drinks.... I had two beers and one mixed drink in the 30 minute ride. It was worth it even if I had to pay! (my son who was hosting my other sons bachelor party footed the bill for all 7 of us!)...
