I actually slept in this morning which was surprising. When I woke up. I went to the girls room where they informed me of their adventure in the random guy's hotel room the night before. I dont think I ever laughed that hard. We got the rest of the guys and decided we were going to walk to the Luxor casino becuase we wanted to get information on its nightclub LAX. The Luxor was actually a really cool hotel. It has a giant pyramid outside of it that shines a light into the sky at night. The whole hotel is filled with sphynx and other Egyptian sculptures. It is at the strip so it took a while to get there. We got the information we needed and the girls made reservations at a restaurant by LAX. The guys and I opted out because it was really expensive.
I was in the same club as Carrot Top!
We then did more strip exploring. We still did not find the 99-cent hotdogs. This was becoming quite the challenge. We were determined to find them before going back to Canada. We did find a place near our hotel where they sold delicious slushies with vodka in them. They were incredible and you got to keep the giant glass they come in. Refills are half the price so obviously we couldn't resist. We felt a little touristy walking through these fancy casinos that we could never afford holding our booze slushies with our lips stained red and blue lol. As were walking and drinking, i wasn't paying attention to where i was going and i walked into suzanne just as she was taking a drink. The straw went down her throat and she started gagging. The people around us were giving us the dirtiest looks (they thought she was so drunk that she couldn't handle her alcohol).
She was so embarrassed (as was I) and from that day on, it would be rememberd as the time I tried to kill Suzanne.
After that we went back to the hotel, the girls got dressed up and made their way to the restaurant. The guys started drinking early. What I haven't mentioned yet about this trip was the funny sonversations we would have during these pre-drinks. Since we were on serious lack of sleep everynight and due to the heavy drinking we were doing, we often felt like zombies everytime we started drinking again. People's speech was slurred and almost incomprehensible. It was hilarious lying in bed while one of us was telling a story and then realizing that no one understood any of it. Well this night it was in full effect. We were unnaturally giddy and no one could understand anyone.
It was one of the best memories of the trip actually. Since we ended up getting pretty tipsy before dinner, we decided not to eat out and instead ordered pizza from the hotel. After that we walked to Luxor and got in line for LAX. Like always, the line was ridiculous. I had some change on me and decided I was going to try a slot machine while the others held our place. I put a qaurter in and got nothing. I put another in and pulled and the lights started flashing and music playing. I assumed I had one $10 or something. But then numbers kept going! I was sweating and my heart was pounding as the number got bigger and bigger. I ended up winning $375 off of one quarter!! I was beyond happy (especially since I was almost out of money). My friends were excited and pissed off at my random chance of luck.
After this, the realirty of waiting in line came back and kind of dampened the mood. The girls ended up getting in right from the restaurant with left us four guys in line with no girls to help us get in. Luckily, Siobhan worked her magic and got her connection to get us in half an hour later. LAX was even better than Pure in my opinion. Carrot Top and Mike Tyson were there as well as a few UFC fighters. Every time we went to one of these big clubs I always felt like some sort of celebrity. I also had the experience of handing the bartender a $100 bill to get a drink (from my winnings earlier). I never thought I'd have that experience lol. At about 2:30ish almost everyone was exhausted and wanted to go back. Siobhan, Britt and I decided to stay.
One of the shops in the Forum of Ceasar's Palace. If only i could afford to shop there
Some guy from England started hitting on the girls and invited them to their VIP area. They said they would only go if I was allowed too. The guy seemed reluctant but agreed. It turned out his friends were really nice and offered me their bottle service. So i ended up with free grey goose. They were pretty wild and destructive though and at 4:30ish we deicided to leave. We didn't want to go to bed yet so we agreed to go and change and meet in the lobby. The girls left and I started walking to the elevators in the hotel. A girl came up to me and started chatting with me. She asked where I was going and I told her I was going to my room to change into something more comfortable (it was true!). She asked if she could join me. Me being as naive as I am didn't know why she wanted to.
I asked her if she needed to use the phone or something. After about 30 seconds of awkwardness, I realized that she was a prostitute! I found myself at a loss for words and told her no thanks but I wished her luck lol. I have a lot to learn about Vegas. She found my innocence amusing though and wished me a good night.
I went upstairs, had some pizza left over from dinner and met the girls. We decided to go to Subway before bed. This truly is a cirty where people never sleep. There were just as many poeple on the streets at 5 am than there were at 7 pm earlier that night. Another fun and eventful night!
