My Las Vegas trip
I was looking at my pictures from Las Vegas today and then I recognized that I absolutely forgot to tell you all how it went. So, it is better later than never. Here it comes the short story.
One guy at work told me about one airway company with which I could fly from our village called Lexington non-stop to Las Vegas. I was really excited and was preparing to go. So, I was about to order tickets, but they said it is their last flight, from Lex to LAS. One way. Anyway, I couldn't miss this great opportunity to go to Las Vegas just for 60$ taxes included. I'd say it's free. I booked a room in the hotel called Plaza in downtown (I didn't think how far it is from the strip, and also I wanted to get the cheapest deals possible). I paid about 75$ for 3 nights. Needless to say it was like free either. Because when me and my girlfriend wanted to spend a night in hotel in Russia we had to pay about 100$ per night. I really enjoyed how my room looked like, it was pretty big, clean and neat. However, there was a lot of noise every time I was going to sleep, but I guess it's anywhere in Las Vegas. Through the travbuddywebsite I found a girl from Switzerland who was going to sin city at the same time, so as soon as I got checked in the hotel we met up. I guess everybody would agree that being alone in Vegas is not much fun. So we went to dinner cuz I wanted to eat so badly. We went to some asian restaurant or something, and I paid for both of us. I think that was the key. Because after that, we were just hanging out and went to Flamengo. I saw a roulette with one zero on it, and got twenty 5$ chips. Since I worked in a casino in Russia, I know the row of numbers on the spinning wheel. As I usually do, I bet decent on zero sector, numbers like 28-29-32-35-3 etc. And it hit!!! I think it was 28. My payout was like $500+. People who were playing there told me to leave till it's not to late lol. I bet another spin with the colour chips I was given, lost them, and went to cashier. I said to Sylvia 'I love Las Vegas'. I've done that several more times in different casinos, and I think I was doing pretty good at roulette tables. Then I decided to play a poker tournament in Venecia. I was running really good, was pretty decent stack, cards were coming to me. Until I got QQ and called the other guy's all-in with it. QQ vs AT. You already know what card was on the river. Couple hands later I shoved my AT from the small blind, and Big blind and the button both called. AT vs QQ vs KK. Got out 14th. Spent four hours of play and got nothing... I thought 'man you are here just for three days, you can't just spend your time so futile'. So I didn't play anymore tournaments. However, I played cash game in Riviera, spent couple hours and I think finished about even. Anyways, I made pretty good money at the roulette tables so I could afford shopping. I went to Vegas without any clothes in my bag lol. Just whatever was on me. And I loved shopping in Vegas. I went to the store called 'GUESS'. There was a nice beautiful girl. I just told her that she needs to choose what will be good on me. So I bought a really nice shirt and jeans. It was expensive thought, I think about 260$. Anyways, I like it a lot and wear it with joy lol. They didn't have the shoes I wanted, so I told her that she needs to go to another store with me to help me choose shoes. So she said I can wait for her for about 30 minutes since she is leaving anyway. I was hanging around and when she was done working, she went with me to another store. Of course, you all should ask, what happened next. Unfortunately, nothing. She said that her dog is like locked for 12 hours at home and she needs a walk. I don't know if I believed her, but If I will ever meet her again, something will definitely happen :)
Me, Sylvia, and two other guys who she found through the same website went to Stratosphere and it was really great experience. I would recommend that to absolutely everyone!
Also, I went to Cosmopolitan just to see it from the inside. I found a sportbar and a soccer game was on one of the TV's. However, there was sound coming from other TV, and it was showing some crap like baseball of American football. I asked barmen if he can make my TV louder. So he told me that if I will switch seats, he will put soccer on a big screen. I don't know if I could have this experience anywhere else in the USA. I tried to do that in a casino in Indiana during the poker tournament and they said nobody watches soccer in America haha.
Then it was time to leave.... I was really sad about leaving. You know, I have never had that feeling before in any town or city, that Yeah it's my city. But i felt that as soon as I got there. I was so depressed when I got back to Kentucky. And also it was kinda hard to come from a lot of sun to the storm weather. But anyways, I know it was not my last time and I am glad I have experienced Las Vegas. I wish I could have more time though. But with that freaking work schedule it was impossible. Next time I will go at least for a week. And if any of the members would like to join me, everybody is very welcome.
I love you, Las Vegas.
