TR - June 8-11 Flamingo Mystere Isla Fremont Mon Ami Gabi

Not you typical trip report - forget what airline we traveled, cab rides, etc. Here's my tips for vegas 2009.

1. Staying at the Flamingo is awesome if you book a Go Room that overlooks the strip. Pool scene is outstanding!

2. Staying at the Flamingo is totally crud if you gamble - slots are super tight and so are the VP pays. No 3-2 blackjack - beware the 2-1 blackjack with bizarre rules.

3. Mirage Spa rocks! Booked a 'renewal' spa session for my lovely lady - she could barely walk afterwards.

4. Mystere. First Cirque show ever. It is what it is - see it if you must.

5. Mirage Poker room - very well run - and a very nice casino overall.

6. BLT Burger at Mirage - very cool. Can't comment on the burger - just stopped for fries but very nice service and atmosphere.

7. Bellagio Conservatory - jaw dropping.

8. Mon Ami Gabi - great service - awesome wine, best pork chop I ever had. Fried Fish not so much.

9. Main St Station 777 brew pub - very good beer (try the sampler) and the food is good too!

10. Sin City Brewery - not so good.

11. Margaritaville - who cares?

12. Kahunaville - who cares?

13. Isla - very good 'authentic' Mexican at TI. great seafood and tequila drinks.

14. Fremont Street - great time on a Wed night. Binions is coming back strong and the Golden Nugget hasn't aged a bit. Can't miss giving downtown a visit after sundown (check the Queen tribute light show).

15. Rock and Roll - heck with the 'ultra-lounges' - Rock and Roll still lives at Harrah's Carnival Court (The Crashers rock!) and elsewhere (saw a very entertaining Jimi Hendrix band on Fremont St.)

Saw the same Hendrix band and was impressed, but got a couple KISS light shows on Freemont, not Queen.

Eaten at Isla before too ... very good, but coming from Texas, not worth the price.

Dug the beer at at 777.

Good overall breakdown donutz!

Thanks for sharing. Will have to check the Main Street Station Brew Pub. BLT at Mirage makes great milkshakes. You can even get alcahol in them.

Bellagio Conservatory was jaw dropping. The ferris wheel was awesome.

Glad you had a great time.

Thanks for taking the time to write a report and did you try one of BLT loaded milkshakes?

Coming from South Orange Co Ca I find LV mexican food over priced and almost as good as ours.
