The view from room 14070
Today I was checking out of Mandalay Bay and into the Bellagio. Wendy had an early afternoon flight back to OC so we parted at the taxi stand at around 11am. Despite me getting to the Bellagio 3 hours before the normal check in time there were no problems at all getting a room. I got a room on the 14th floor overlooking the fountains. There is a higher rate for the view but in my opinion, well worth it.

After settling in a little bit I hit the strip for lunch a bit of shopping. I had arranged to meet Melanie and Erin in the afternoon to go and see a football game and then to a piano bar. Well that was the plan anyway. I got a text from Wendy saying her flight was delayed an hour. A while later, as I was walking round the Forum Shops, I got a call from her saying that her flight had been cancelled! The airline had put her up in a Travelodge but I wasn't having that.

I told her to meet me back at my place and so I went back to wait for her. She eventually arrived at my hotel at around 6 after having to wait for her bags. We were both a little hungry by now so ended up having dinner at Trevi in the Forum Shops. Neither of us could finish our meals because we were both tired and the portions were HUGE! On the way back through the lobby at Caesars we noticed a lot of people wearing the same cowboy hats. That must mean they're free! We found out that it was Mexican independence day and if you bought a margarita from a stand outside you got a free had. So we had our free hats. Both of us were feeling more awake and in the mood for a party. Next on the list though were beads. WE WANT BEADS!!!

We found the beads outside Harrahs. The only problem was that we had to hug a Chippendale to get some. That didn't take too long to negotiate and we had our beads. We found the girls in full swing at the piano bar and we joined right in. Now, I have to confess that I was actually quite drunk at this point thanks to the Uptown Topshelf from Margaritaville so I don't remember everything that happened but I do remember that I had an awesome night and that i laughed a lot.
