vegas
#1
So I just got back from Las Vegas. I stayed at New York New York. My brother and his wife were at MGM Grand which was across the street. We went everywhere. Mandalay Bay. Luxor. Excaliper. Park MGM. Flamingo. Bellagio. Caesars. Ballys. Mirage. Paris. We walked the strip and used the tram as well that connects the north and south ends. We took a taxi up to Fremont street where the Golden Nugget, Four Queens, Binion's, among others. It costs 25.00 via taxi each way to Fremont, but that area is unbelievable. If you go to Vegas, go to Fremont street one of the evenings.

We saw Aerosmith one evening. Park MGM has a new theater. Seats about 5000. Not a bad seat in the place. We were in the balcony.
Was impressed that at 70 years old, these guys still have it....musical, voice, and energy.

About a 4 hour flight from Cincinnati to it. About 3 hours back...you fly quicker back due to the favorable winds, Cost was 65.00 each way. Hotel for Sunday thru Thurs was about 300 with added resort fee of about 160. So about 600 room and flight. Only bummer was I lost about 1500 gambling, no surprise, just didn't have much luck but had fun anyway. Brother won 2500....the luck was with him instead.

I bought a new pair of shoes for the trip and put some foam inserts into them. Turned out to be a good idea. The tread on my shoes is really worn already, ha. I know Vegas isn't for everybody, but there is a lot to see and do there without gambling. The Reds were 15-1 to win the National League Central. And 30-1 to win the pennant.
