2011 Las Vegas trip is nearing
6 weeks from today and we will be in Las Vegas for our yearly trip. I am feeling really lucky this year. Time will tell! As of yesterday we have secured our final room reservations. We are staying at 2 new to us properties this year. First two nights we are staying at Eastside Cannery this is a newly built casino and a first stay for us, they have offered us free rooms we believe due to our visits to their (local to us) sister property The Meadows in Pittsburgh. They are also giving us $20 free casino cash to play on. Nights 3 and 4 we will be staying at, drum roll please..... Caesar's Palace, this too will be a first for us in Las Vegas although we did stay at Caesar's in Atlantic City last fall. I lost a lot there so I hope that Vegas is kinder to my bankroll. Might I mention that I do love Caesar's formally known as Harrah's for their continued room offers w/o the nasty Resort fees. For our final two days we are staying at The Orleans, they have consistently offered us two free nights every year plus a little free play and some restaurant $$. This casino also waves the resort fees on our comped rooms. We have ordered tickets to see The Lion King at Mandalay Bay, these were bought with a discount code costing us a little over $60 per ticket. We are also going to try out the All Stage Pass this year. I will report after our trip with how successful or not it was.
