For the first time in my life, I have not one, not two, but three Vegas trips planned. Better yet they are all within the next four months, so it is safe to say that I am completely psyched. If you followed my site before you might have noticed my glee when having two trips booked. The last time I was there was in June, and a lot of changes have happened. O’Shea’s had just been blown out and when I go in the end of September, construction of The Quad should be well on it’s way.
My next trip will be with the guys and we’ll be staying at the Flamingo. At first I wasn’t super excited but my buddy and I are coming the powers of our Total Rewards cards for a super cheap rate. $190 for four nights, with taxes over the weekend. Now I am super excited because of the great deal, plus I have never stayed there before and the pool looks amazing.
The very next weekend I’ll be heading back to Monte Carlo with my fiance because after all my hard work and gambling I finally got an offer from them worth taking. I think it should still be warm enough to utilize the nice pool.
I have a lot of new stuff planned for the next couple trips. I am going to check out Lagasse’s Stadium, with their $50 minimum and all. I really want to try the new buffet at Caesar’s Palace, Bacchanal buffet, which is supposed to be up there along with the best of them. A lot of new restaurants opened so between visiting my normal stomping grounds I would like to try Allegro at the Wynn. It is an Italian restaurant with a menu that is not too pricey, which is a nice change for the Wynn. Another thing I want to do is see Rock of Ages at the Venetian, but that doesn’t open until December, but the Bourbon Room from the musical will be open so I’ll probably stop in for a drink.
My Third trip booked is for my new tradition of visiting on MLK day. It is nice because I get the Monday off, but it is awfully close to Christmas so taking extended time off doesn’t make a lot of sense. So why not go to Vegas? I will be staying at the Mirage, also a first for me, which is great because their pool stays open all winter. Last MLK day I stayed at Bellagio and had the whole pool to myself. These next four months are going to be amazing so stay tuned for tons of updates.
