Flew in from Toronto Thursday the 26th at 11:30 pm Vegas time
No problem getting a cab or checking in, but had requested a king no smoking and got a smoking queen.really smokey smelling..
the next am we upgraded to a GO non smoking..quite nice with a view of the pools
Every am hubby went for coffee (7am) and to stake out our chairs as the pool area filled up very quickly
We would go for breakfast, both Bally's Big Kitchen (yummy) and the Tropical Breeze at the Flamingo..then spend 3 hours reading and relaxing at the pool. For someone whose pager and blackberry rules their life..it was heaven
After breakfast we showered and hit the strip..gambled at Ceacars,Bally's, Bills, Osheas, Paris,Venetian..and in all did pretty well..only at the Bellagio..did we go home broke...
Dined at Delmonico,lovely,..Cockeyed Clam at the IMP,Please do not go here..it is just plain bad!..The Top of the world, Stratosphere..glorious,..The Italian place at the Flamingo..I think it is called Venturo, and also the steak place at Bills..which was a surprise it was quite nice. My favorite tho I think was Hugo's at the 4Queens..the food was superb and the service impressive
The weather was HOT..96 - 98 every day..loved it!!
Air Canada my carrier cancelled my flight home 3 hours before we were due to leave..luckily I was able to book us on West jet and get us home as I had a full days work and a provincila presentation to do that day..no more Air Canada for us!
Loved every single minute and cannot wait to return..what a place!
