Las Vegas Trip Report: One Night at Fiesta Henderson

This morning I woke up at Sunset Station at 4:30 am.  I do not know what is wrong with me and my sleeping pattern.  I refused to make the same mistake as yesterday, when I went out and lost all my money before Starbucks even opened.  I forced myself to stay in my room until 8:00 am.  This was not easy since all the machines downstairs were screaming my name.  SHUT UP YOU ASSHOLES.

I went downstairs and used a MyVegas reward for breakfast.  I had a big score when the buffet ran out of strawberry yogurt and it was replaced with blueberry.  Hey, I will take any win I can get at this point in my losing streak.

I played a bit to make sure that the blueberry yogurt was not the only score I was going to have this morning and sadly, it was.  Stations casinos are having a promotion where you can swipe your card, pick a penguin and win a prize.  Today’s prize was a free $5 bet on a table game. I don’t know how to play table games.  The Roulette dealer I asked for help, told me what I could bet.  I picked red and black came up.  Because of course it did.

I went outside to find a drug store to get some stuff I am running out of, particularly conditioner.  I probably exited through the one door that is nowhere near anywhere.  I walked forever and found nothing.  I knew there was a Target nearby but why would I walk out the door that I know where to walk to Target from, when I can walk out a door that I have no idea where I am.  I probably walked a million miles, most of them in the parking lot, before I gave up and went back to my room to pack.

Today I am moving to Fiesta Henderson.   I booked this on Priceline for $20.  They charge a $9.99 resort fee ($11-something with tax) and I was okay with this because it includes internet.

Taking the bus here from Sunset Station probably took ten minutes.  The walk through the parking lot probably took the same as well.

I check in and get room 3115.  Don’t let the numbers fool you.  That is the third floor.  The room was motel-like and honestly, I kind of like rooms like this because they are in my comfort zone.

I went downstairs to gamble and decided I truly hate this casino.  I am trying to play nickel video poker and it seems like every machine I try is ten coins for max bet.  The royal is shorted if you only play five.  Guys, I don’t want to play ten coins.  I am broke.  I finally settle on nickel Keno with a progressive jackpot that of course, I did not hit.  Time for a nap!

When I woke up, I decided I was going to go Downtown.  I have the two Plaza $5 free play coupons I never used the other day.  I can get a comped meal at Four Queens and some Dunkin Donuts coffee.  Plus see also:  I can actually find the Walgreens down there.

I go outside and pick the wrong bus stop to catch the HDX bus.  A man is there and he points me to the right bus stop, across two streets.  The HDX is pulling away as this is happening.  But it is only 6:50 and it is supposed to come at 7:16 so I stick it out, hoping that this one was just the bus before running late.  Nope.  As I am sitting there, more people come to catch the 7:16 bus.  Everyone is getting annoyed at how late it is.  I get to where I cannot take it anymore and quit and give up.  By the time the next bus would have come, I would have only had an hour Downtown before having to come back here.  That or take a bus that is not the HDX and that takes an insane amount of time to do.

Maybe this is fate telling me that playing in Fiesta Henderson is my destiny and I will finally win something.


I didn’t even get so much as one four of a kind today.  This is bullshit and I demand a recount.

I came back to my room with Starbucks and used the internet to make a new post.  I also watched Netflix.  I did not chill though.  Sigh.

I also never read my itinerary today so I did not use the Sam’s Town $10 free play.  Or do anything else on it except switch hotels.

Gambling Day: -200
Gambling Trip: +680
Miscellaneous: (Starbucks, cigarettes, tips): $24.97
Comps used: Nada.
Freebies: Sunset Station buffet.  Free via MyVegas, saved me $7.02.  Side note, how cute is it that this buffet costs is the same as the Las Vegas Area code / how annoying must it be for cashiers to continually have to give $.98 change?
