First Trip of 2013

Going to Vegas on MLK day has become a bit of tradition for me and this will be my 4th straight year going on this weekend.  Room ratse are always decent as CES is complete and there is nothing else going on, but the Strip is still decently crowded as it is a holiday weekend for most folks.  On this trip I am finally getting to stay at The Mirage, which has been high on my list for places to stay.  I haven’t stayed there before because the rates have always been around the same price as nice hotels but I was able to get great rates by booking this trip last June.

I have been saving most of my north Strip activities for this trip.  I am finally planning on eating at The Mirage as the only food I have had there in the past is the buffet.  I have heard great things about BLT Burger and am looking forward to checking that out.  On top of that I will also be visiting the Bourbon Room at The Venetian to see how good their drinks are.

I also purchased a Travelzoo deal for The Public House at Luxor for two appetizers, two entrees, and two beers for $49.  That prize is supposedly half off, but $49 seems to be a fair price for these items, but it is Vegas so I’m sure prices are super inflated.

Besides that, I’m sure we will be hitting dueling pianos like usual.  A couple friends are also coming with us on this trip so I’m sure it will be a great time.  Stay tuned for the full trip report, probably a couple weeks after I return.
