I wake up at Mirage this morning, and I don’t want to go home. I really don’t. I sit and check flights, considering staying an extra day, like I did back in December. In the end, I agree to go home. But I am not happy about it.
I am so exhausted from my insistence of visiting every Strip casino, and doing it all in two days. I would love to just stay in this bed for a few more hours, but not allowed.
I got dressed and walked over to Bellagio to use a free MyVegas buffet reward. For anyone who says “How hard is it to mess up breakfast?” I present to you a tray of salmonella.
No, that is not cheese.
I lose $40 here on Cleopatra Keno. Cross the street to Planet Hollywood and cashed out even on Cleopatra Keno. Over to Paris where I redeem a free candy bar at Hexx, via MyVegas of course. These are your choices for this reward:
In Paris, I lost $40. Not to be outdone by her fancy sister, Ballys stole $140 from me. Dammit. Maybe I did make the right decision to not extend my trip.
One last loss through Mirage. On the Buffalo machine that gave me my huge win. I guess I will not be visiting the High Limit area on this trip.
I have a couple of hours to kill before going to the airport. I was not sure what I was going to do. But I decided to do something I have never done on my last day. Get a massage.
I called Happy Feet at El Cortez and made an appointment. I took a cab to Four Queens and checked my bag. I was really short on time to make my appointment so I could only go semi-degenerate.
Walked over to El Cortez and got an hour long foot massage. This was the best idea I have ever had. It curbed the last day desperate attempt to win a bazillion dollars. And when I was done, I was short on time. But not short enough that I had to forfeit one last round of Buffalo. I love you Buffalo.
I left Las Vegas with $2400. This sounds amazing. But in all fairness, I was here for seven days. Which means my budget at $200/day is $1400 total (Thanks to Patricia for correcting my original figure of $2400!) So I did bring home my entire budget, plus an extra $1000 WOO!
When I got to the airport, I checked my email and saw that Cosmopolitan had sent me free play via email. They did this back in December too. If I had caught it before I left, I would have gone there instead of Downtown for my massage / Buffalo combo. I am kind of glad I didn’t. But it will forever haunt me wondering what would have happened if I did. That’s the thing about Las Vegas. You never know what will happen.
