Trip report part 2

Day 4

Had a lie in then had a late sart, went to strip burger (restaurant.com) voucher, for brunch then waddled round the mall for a few hours trying to digest it all, walked upto circus circus adventure dome (myvegas freebie) with our wristbands could go on everything but didn't really enjoy to much there, did get a great photo on the roller coaster with me pulling my classical "roller coaster eyes closed face" headed back to hotel then and changed for the evening, had cocktails in Wynn by the lake, I though drink prices quite reasonable considering the location. Had dinner in sw steak, lovely restaurant and food fab, I remembered to ask chef to use less salt as I find all meals so far to salty, had a mains and a side each and couldn't eat any more. Thought was nice food and service was fab but certainly not good enough for the prices we paid.

Gambled (yay after 4 days) on jaws machine in Wynn, found waiting to long for drink service so left 10 dollars down

Day 5

Woke up early after a very bad night sleep with some vivid dreams, I guess it was the meats sweats. Today was our day moving hotels, so monorail to ti to collect our car got a lovely crysler 200, through dollar. I know some people don't but I like to drive on holiday and enjoy the freedom, checked out of mgm and headed to peppermil for breakfast but was so busy didn't eat there, ended up having early lunch in top of the world, stratosphere, (using restaurnt.com voucher) had the 3 courses for 45 dollars and was amazing, best meal we have had so far food wise, and views were amazing. In all my time in vegas had never been here before and had been under the impression it is quite a dive but I didn't find that at all

Headed to the pawn star shop, queued for 10 mins to get in but worth it, place was bigger than people on tripadvisor made out and me and the guy in front while queuing laughed at the fact how redicilous it is we are queuing to get into a shop where we don't really want to buy anything. Chum lee turned up while we were there and signed my t shirt I bought for my sister.

Went downtown to get cheap souvenirs but the prices down there seemed to have shot up and in some places more expensive than the strip,

Checked into corner suite of vdara (travelzoo voucher and negotiated upgrade with jet before travel) amazing hotel, room is fab and inside the Bellagio casino in under 10 mins from my room view is stunning just wish could hear the fountain music as Well as see them

Will definitely sty here next time should we get this chance

Went to see love (myvegas) had fantastic seats and show was incredible. Probably best thing I've seen in theatre for years, really enjoyed, though I had downloaded the album in the airport on traveling the music was so much better when viewed with the show

Taxi to montecarlo to use the open bar VIP at the pub (my vegas) bar very limited to bud/coors/miller and generic gin vodka or rum. Had some food, nice salad but the pianists and the audience were not clicking right and so wasn't really a good night so left early

Certainly could have made more of the free bar if the mood was right

Now sitting in chair overlooking the fountAins writing trip report
