Will end up on this blog! As you know, a couple of weekends ago, I went to Las Vegas with Donna and Angie, my co-workers, courtesy of my firm and had a great time. Since it was my first time there, we HAD to see most of the casinos, all in two days! So, after checking in at the Mandalay Bay, we started our trek along the strip. You name the casino, I’m sure we saw it. Highlights from the trip:
-Getting lost inside the Mandalay Bay and not finding the exit for about 10 minutes.
-Getting carded when I went to cash my ticket winnings of $2.35.
-Seeing the Bellagio Fountain at night.
-Walking into the M&M store and coming to the realization that people really will buy anything.
-Sitting down at a table for the first time ever and playing “Let It Ride.”
-Getting carded as soon as I sat down at my first table ever.
-Winning $30 from a penny slot machine.
-Losing $20 in 2 minutes.
-Getting all dolled up and then having to wear a fleece because it’s too cold to walk around in a tank top.
-Not watching what I ate while I was there.
-Lots and lots of walking.
-Free drinks. And yes, I did take advantage of these free drinks and no, I did not pass out after the first sip.
-Taking a bath and watching TV at the same time. Flat screen TV in the bathroom, how cool!
It was amazing, an assault on your senses and your pocketbook. I do have to say, I did pretty well for myself, leaving home with $300 and coming back with $60 (I paid cash for everything, food and gambling). Hopefully, I’ll be able to get some pictures up soon for you to enjoy! If you have never been, you should go at least once, it’s a sight to behold.
