Trip Report We just got back

I just got back today!

A group of us went some of the people in the group first times my second.

Hotel

We stayed at the Flamingo. Excellent location, Small rooms and bathrooms. We were not in the room long enough so small rooms okay. Easy to move around the Casino. My second time staying there next time I would try Bally's or Mirage. Bally's look a lot better on the inside.

Monorail

I love the monorail. There was a twenty min. delay one time. However it cut down on having to walk through crowded street traffic.

Shows and Activities

Some of us went to the Mirage for the dolphin show. Okay You kind have to like dolphins. We went to see George Wallace and Celion Dion. Both great shows. Celion Dion show is very quick the dancers are incredible. There is also a nice gift shop for Celion Dion. We rode the rollercoaster at NY scary but short!

Food

I have heard great things about the Hard Rock's Mr. Lucky's $7.77 gamblers special. The steak was tough and dry (I have tough choppers) waiter rude!

Bellagio breakfast was a great price excellent quality food.

Spice Market for lunch just okay. The way the food is seasoned it should just be called MARKET.

A great 24hr cafe in the Venetian good prices.

Cocktail service

Hardrock, Mirage, Sahara A+

Casino Royale A

Mandlay Bay, Luxor B

Aladin, Rio D (Planet Hollywood 2006)

Last Note

CBS television at the MGM is a good place to look around. A couple of the guys in our group went watched a show and they earned $50. They then went and lost it at the MGM Casino but they had a good time. Gambling basically lost big time. I have to go back and visit my $$$$$$$$$.

All the new people in the group had a great time. I would always go on the weekdays skip the weekends.
