Trip report for last week @ the Flamingo

We were at the Flamingo for 6 nights. Check in was pretty fast but I had a deluxe room and check in wouldn't consider any upgrade less than $30 more a day (I am a gold card holder) I said no and prayed I got a decent room. Last year we were upgraded to a Go Lux. for free. The room we got was on the eighth floor over looking the real Flamingo's and pool. The room really wasn't bad at all, it was large and run down, like people described but clean and quiet. Here are some places we went to eat:

Battista's Hole in the Wall, I love it there

The dive bar next door to Battista's, cheap and fun

Carnival Court, Expensive and fun

Ellis Island, Barbeque (S) ($10.99) and Steak ($8.99) Great!

Green Valley Ranch, Pancakes and Mamosa's, the best

Toby Keith's bar, Great Reuben Sandwich

Binions, Sandwich shop, Great Ham &Turkey club

Frankie's Tiki Bar, Cheap drinks and a fun place, must see at least once

Cosmopolitan Chandilier bar, expensive but beautiful

Jimmy Buffet's Marquerita's bar ,fun

All casino's, Slots very tight, Black jack many 20's-dealer many 21's, Craps, 7 & out!, Roulette-lost!

If I think of anything else, I will add. All and all, we had a great trip and even if you loose gambling, just play what you can afford.

I wish I was back there now. The weather 2 week's ago was in the 70's, last week was the 80's!

Nice list of visits. Just keep trying on that gambling ... you're due ! I like 3-card poker as a change-of-pace (besides the ones you mentioned).
