we stayed at the gold spike - a truly horribly smoky den of a hotel, but fun. our room was amazingly clean and large. the casino was fine and i didn't feel out of place chain smoking cigars. yes people, i've become a cigar whore. i did what i said i would do and smoke cigars the whole weekend - at the slots, at the tables, while walking the strip - even while walking through the Bellagio. i even ventured into Casa Fuentes, a premier cigar shop where i picked up some choice items for my buddy at riches. we also enjoyed some choice Mojitos. at that mall, we saw pete rose and some guy from star wars - pretty cool. i offered to buy anna a hermes bag, but we just couldn't find the hermes shop.
food - well, not that special. we're portland food snobs and obviously vegas doesn't have laughing planet. it worked out though and we didn't get sick. i did like the $1.50 beers at the gold spike and any free drinks the casinos were willing to offer. i did learn that if you want to drink, stick with beer as mixed drinks seem to be pretty week.
NEVER FLY AMERICA WEST AGAIN!
AMERICA WEST SUCKS BALLS - BIG HAIRY BALLS!
got that out of my system.
what else....well, check out our FLICKR photo stream - there are some choice photos of A and I kickin' it. leave comments there and keep us amused.
