krazyk

been to vegas once.. and since then, I couldn't get enough.. recently, I've been lucky enough to hit up vegas about twice a year. I enjoy finding any remaining cheap eats in Vegas, and visiting the many nightclubs on and off the strip. Been thinking about going to the Penn & Teller show.. We'll see if I'm lucky enough to win enough for some tickets...



2/9/11: Mobile Beat Convention



8/26/10: Got here cheap and was even given $$$ to stay in the casino, but ended up paying more than full price for a off strip property. Jamaica here I come!

6/9/10: Got some ultra cheap tickets on HA



1/3/09: First Vegas trip of the year planned for Feb 16 - 19. I'm going to a Mobile DJ convention to hopefully learn some tricks at making more money with my business.



8/8/08: Looks like I will be making the trek one more time this year. I had a dream last night where I was walking down the strip (something I never do) and I walked in to the Flamingo or Riviera (the dream is a little blurry) and I hit the MegaBucks Jackpot on the first pull. I think this is a sign!



4/15/08: Airfare to Vegas is outrageous since Aloha and ATA went offline. I don't think they'll be any vegas trips anytime soon.



2/27/08: Just got back from a 51 hour Vegas marathon. I finally seen the Fire Bet on a crap table!! I even rode the monorail.



1/25/08: Boy, today will be one for the history books. Thank goodness no one got hurt. I still have yet to hear the final report on the fire.



1/9/08: Happy New Year to the VT surfers out there!! So I made my plans for my upcoming trip. Obviously I wanna play craps, 21 and my new year resolution: more "Megabucks" but I also planned to see a showgirl show, ride the monorail, eat at an expensive restaurant with a strip view, and hire a sexy girl direct to my room from the slappers. (well the last one is probably not going to happen) Also, I plan to visit Palazzo, the remains of The Frontier, peek at Echelon and City Center's ongoing construction. Oh yeah and visit my DJ friends at Red Room Saloon, Pollyester's, and Moorea Beach Club.



12/3/07: Got a great deal on airfare from Hawaiian Air. $390 R/T direct flight w/ a meal.



8/14/07: Well I didn't make it to Bill's Gambling Hall & Saloon, hopefully next time!! All of my friends keep telling me that's still the #1 afterhours spot. Just give me a crap table at 5am and I'm right at home.





3/11/07: Looks like I'm going to finally stay at Wynn Las Vegas on August 12th.



10/29/06: Oh yeah, the Sahara buffet really did suck. It reminded me of a college dorm cafeteria.. I hope the new owners change the dining options.



9/5/06: yay!! i'm finally going to stay at THEhotel!!



BTW, I'm very happy that the Stardust won best signage in this years Trippie Awards. It deserved to win for one last time!

Stardust (Echelon Place)

Stardust (Echelon Place)

I've been staying here since my first trip to Las Vegas in 1999. Luckily, on that first trip I managed to win at least $100 a day playing the slots there.. There will always be a special place in my heart for the Stardust, and I really wish they wouldn't blow this joint up.. My last stay there was the weekend of Oct. 21st, 2006. I had to take advantage of the last of my Stardust comps. At least I got $65 cash back from all of my slot points! Hope this thing get's built. BYD should have left The Stardust.

Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay

I stayed here twice. I stayed in THEhotel and a suite in the original tower after the remodel. The remodeled rooms are nice, very uplifting tones in the room. I wanted to stay here to swim in the pool, but I never made it to the pool. I was way too hung over to be in the sun.

Caesars Palace

Caesars Palace

After reading all of the VT readers comments on the CP page, I decided to stay at Caesars on my upcoming trip. It's either 3 days here or 5 days at any other LV Harrah's property. Review to come! I had reserved a Forum Tower room but was given a upgrade to the Palace Tower with a view of the pool area.

Encore

Encore

Coming soon!!!

Orleans

Orleans

It was refreshing walking down a smokey hallway. Felt as I was home again (Stardust)... The buffet is good, I ate there several times every trip. Terrible Mike's was good, but they took that out awhile ago.

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Rooms were big. I like that! There were a couple of male cocktail servers in the casino (I guess Harrah's is being EOE). Drink service sucked on all shifts except swing. I also went to Ghost Bar and ran into a DJ I know from Hawaii. The food, hmmm I know I tried the seafood buffet and ate nine clusters of snow crab. Ate at the Carnival World Buffet. It was worth the comp! I will definitely stay here again. Saw Penn and Teller too.

MGM Grand

MGM Grand

Just stayed here to take advantage of a comp and I was curious to see what the rooms looked like. All I really did was drop the kids off, but the bed felt real comfortable and it didn't squeek when I jumped on the bed. This joint is huge but for a place soo big the casino seemed small. The pool is way the hell out in the back of the property. The green exterior light shines into the room at night.

Venetian

Venetian

This place was alright. Only came here to eat and ride the gondola which was way too crowded.

Mirage

Mirage

The Mirage is a nice hotel! The animal habitat was kinda cool, but very expensive to see. Seems like the MGM-Mirage corporation is catering this joint to high rollin' family types. The one plus, if traveling with shopping types, the Forum Shops are right next door from the enterance of the Mirage.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island

From my first visit to LV, I kinda thought Treasure Island was cheesy. Until, 2004 when I walked in for a second time. There is definitely a difference since MGM-Mirage rebranded the joint.. Oh yeah, check out Tangerine Wednesday night. I would recommend reserving a table..

California

California

I love the music they play in the casino. Disco and old skool!!!

Main Street Station

Main Street Station

Nice joint! and great food! but I'm not much of a fan of staying in downtown.. Plus, with the large amount of Hawaii folk staying there from the airfare/hotel/meal packages that Boyd Gaming sells through Vacations Hawaii, I choose to stay else where just for the adventure of getting away from life in Hawaii. VP machines on main bar has pretty good paybacks on Double Bonus Poker.

Paris Las Vegas

Paris Las Vegas

I've been up the faux Effiel Tower in the past so I was a bit excited to stay here on my recent trip. One, it was the first time staying at a Harrah's property and two, I received a guest comp from a Total Rewards platnium member. Unfortunately, the bed was hard and stiff. It was pretty uncomfortable, and to top it off the bed would crinkle when you roll over. After grinding for 8 hours, i had the worst 5 hours of sleep in my life. It really messed up the remaining 30 hours I had left. Luckily, we were doubled booked at The Orleans. When we got back after Crazy Horse Paris, we packed up and checked out.

New York-New York

New York-New York

Did it. Done that. Rooms are small. Wasn't totally impressed. I'd still probably go back to ride the roller coaster and eat at Nathan's.

Gold Coast

Gold Coast

Stayed here for three nights with two of them being comped and was given food credit and slot credits as part of the offer. I've played here several times in the past and had a either a great run or an ice block of a table. My first stay here was neither grand or crappy. The bed was comfortable, but the doors and wall to the hallway are thin. To top it off, there was no in-room safe (boooo). The food choices were alright at best. I'd rather stay at The Orleans. I will say the cocktail waitress that serves the table games during graveyard was the best! She always had a drink for me everytime she came around. Even when she was taking orders. I forgot her name but she's from Hawaii.
