Every day in Vegas it's the same. Wake up late. Lounge by pool. A little casino before dinner. See a good show (Penn and Teller were the best and they hang out with you afterwards too
) and then all night in the casino. Repeat the next day.
One thing I can say is that it gets old after a while. A week is a little too long for me in Vegas. I would break it down into two 4 day trips if I could.
I'm going on the 22nd, and although I won't say I can't wait, it'll be fun to go again. This will be my 3rd time there.
You got that whole first paragraph right, Mookie.
This is what I do - wake up at 9:30 to place bets on early baseball games, then go to the pool for an hour or two (I burn too easily
). Then I watch the end of games I bet on and place more bets on later games. Then we'll eat something, possibly fall asleep for a few hours due to buffet overload, and then stay out until 4 or 5 walking up and down the Strip, playing blackjack, getting steak and eggs, all that stuff. I love it!
I don't do shows...they are too expensive and really don't appeal to me. But, if you have the girlfriend with you, you'll probably have to do a few whether you like it or not.
If I had to see one show, I'd probably see the Blue Man Group. I don't know if they are still at the Luxor or not, though.
One thing we have done both years is go to Blackstone's Steak Restaurant in the Monte Carlo. The filet mignon is EXCELLENT!
I liked being there for a week. It was very relaxing and you got into a nice routine. This time we're only going for 4 days (
), so I'm going to have to up my gambling allowances to compensate. There will be much betting on baseball, attempted poor blackjack playing, maybe some craps. I may try some poker one or two days for fun also.
