So I got to Vegas on Friday after a 4 hour drive...I did great on time and mileage on the way there, beside the small bit of traffic because a a car on fire... it was all good! We chowed down at In-n-Out and made out way to the Monte Carlo Hotel, which I just realized I did not get one single picture of :( Oops, well... nothing was missed. The hotel was a little disappointing but I'd have to blame that on the MAJOR contruction of the future City Center that is being built there and expected to open in 2009. Honestly, the hotel should be charging a little less for that inconvenience, but I guess they will get what they want from who ever's willing to pay. I do have to say the pools wer awesome. They had a Wave pool, a Lazy River Pool, a hot tub and 2 more pools.
When we got to the hotel it was time to drink up and purchase our tickets to some Thunder Down Under...ehem...yeah, been there done that... it was fun. Got my friend up there for a "O" contest...it was hilarious, good times if you're looking for a laugh and cute aussies... lol.... hey, even guys showed up to watch with their gf's! After we got our tickets we walked the strip to go see the new Planet Hollywood Casino and clumsy me tripped on the curb and as I stumbled a promoter for the Palms approached us. I gotta say this guy made our trip totally worth it and I wll definately be keeping his number for future party's out there! He got my friends and I into the front of the line without a cover charge for Rain.
The worst part was the 8 hour drive home... Yuck! Never drive home on a Sunday night!
