That kind of thing does turn people on, Madam.

Which thing? Insults or masterbation?

Jan 9th 2008

I guess it all depends on what you're into now, doesn't it, Anque? :)

Is that the kind of thing that you think you might be into?

(How 'bout you, and two dudes,
Him, you & Stew in the nude.
Being lewd with two dudes for food.
Well, that's if Stew's into it, too.)

If that's what's going on in Vegas these days, I'm happy to eat my lasagna for one at home.

Nah, that's not my type of lasagna. Nice try though :)

Jan 9th 2008

That's an awful lot of effort though. Are we sure we really want to meet each other that badly though? (Just keepin' it real.)

I guess we're going to find out, based on the response to this thread.

And it's looking like the answer is "No."

That's a shame.

I can't afford The Vegas right now - Italy, you see. Plus, Mr. Fishing would probably leave my ass if I told him, "Hey, honey, I'm spending gobs of money on airfare, hotel, and food costs to meet people that I know from the interwebs because of our shared obsession with The Office." And I need his income to keep me in the lifestyle to which I've become accustomed.

Jan 9th 2008

BTF: Oh, I'm sure you have some things you can hold over his head to keep him "keeping" you. :-)

But, yeah. Italy should probably be your priority. (But Christ! Everybody's not going to Italy!)

Yeah, no kidding. A wife without paid employ still has a virtual ATM at her disposal.

ATM = Another Toddler Male?

Same thing here. I'd have to come up with a real good reason to go back to Vegas which doesn't include any cyberfriends. It wouldn't be too hard to think of something; I did leave my cell phone charger behind.

I was duly unimpressed with Caesar's Palace when I was there two years ago, starting with the lack of ice buckets in the rooms. Plus it lacked pink velvet and the pool area at the Flamingo is way better.

Karen you mean this pool didn’t impress you? Two plasma TV's, two separate Marble bathrooms with a dual shower (for couples), jets in the whirlpool tub and a bidet didn't do it for you? And not only did I get an ice bucket, I got free internet access with printer/fax in the room and chocolates.

I thought I had a really good trip until I got here and put some things down in writing.

1) I missed the fireworks
2) There were no topless sunbathers
3)John Krasinski was right around the corner and I didn’t even know it.

My room looked nothing like that. Ordinary room sans ice bucket. When I called and asked for one, they said they could have someone bring me ice, which of course would have meant tip. Forget it. That's standard hotel issue, I think. Plus you had to walk like three-quarters of a mile to get outside, and if you were lucky you'd end up at the front of the hotel. And the casino ceilings are low.

We did have a nice red settee in our room beneath the window.

There wasn't even an ice machine on our floor. The pool was fine. But the Flamingo is my favorite. It's all tropical nooks and crannies. Plus they have penguins! I like the Mirage but it's out of control expensive.

Jan 9th 2008

I stayed at Treasure Island the one time I went: it was fairly affordable and pretty nice. Nothing too special, but I dug it. It had a nice old-timey Vegas feel to it as well.

Jan 9th 2008

I stayed at Caesar's in the summer of '06 and loved it for the same reasons mentioned above by TO. I went with my sister, my mom, and my three nieces and we had a blast. We spent a lot of time at the pool (not the topless one). We stayed at Mandalay this past summer and they had great pools and great rooms too (plasma, huge bathroom with a plasma in there too). My husband and I try to go to Vegas at least twice a year to play and have fun but if I went for an NA event, I would never hear the end of it. I have already told him that I am going to the next convention in Scraton with my best friend so if you guys go to that, then I will definitely see you there!

This is true. I was about to feign handicap status to get a wheelchair.

I love eating at the Flamingo buffet. The food is not anything special but they have big windows overlooking the Flamingo and Penguin habitat. It's like paradise in that habitat.

Isn't Mandalay Bay the one that has the wave pool?

Jan 9th 2008

Yup they do and they have a lazy river. Their inner tubes are crazy expensive to rent so it's best to take your own. My nieces had a blast there.

Jan 9th 2008

Yes it is. I actually like those hotels at that end of the strip a lot, but we were going to see the Cirque du Soleil water show so I wanted to stay nearby whatever hotel it was at. Husband had never been to Caesar's so he wanted to stay there; we could see the Flamingo from our room and it killed me.

Jan 9th 2008

I like the Mirage but it's out of control expensive.

Really? That's where my friend and I stayed when we went last year because it was the cheapest we could find.

Jan 9th 2008

And you can touch the dolphins at Mirage!

Jan 9th 2008

It was like $340 a night compared to $120 a night when we went.

Jan 9th 2008

From a Sunday to Wednesday, even.

3)John Krasinski was right around the corner and I didn’t even know it.

Yes, he was there for a bachelor party, from what I've read. Thank God it wasn't his.

Jan 9th 2008

I've stayed at Mandalay, great place and the pools with the sand beach are awesome. I've never stayed at Caesar's but I've always wanted to and each time I go I make it a point to go there at least once to walk around and gamble a little. I love it, it's got the old-time Vegas feel but is still real nice and isn't cheesy like places like Circus Circus and Excalibur. Had my best gambling night ever at Paris. I think the Palms is overrated. Feels sterile to me. But it all pales in comparison to the Hard Rock. Beautiful women working there, beautiful women staying there, laid-back dealers, amazing pool, nice rooms, cool clubs, cool restaurants. Love it.

Jan 9th 2008

The Hard Rock is amazing. We stayed there over Thanksgiving one year (which was at my cousin's house). They were super-accomodating: they lost our reservations, so we ended up with a suite for the same price. Everything was covered in velvet, which was hilarious. Also, there was a giant picture of Jimi Hendrix and his flaming guitar. Awesome. The food was amazing - if you ever get a chance, go to Mr. Lucky's. Even at 2 in the morning, great stuff. I also like Mandalay, because it has the House of Blues. Other than that, it's a 2-hour drive there, and I can probably count the number of times I've been there on one hand. Too many people, and I'm too cheap to gamble.

Other than that, it's a 2-hour drive there, and I can probably count the number of times I've been there on one hand.

If I had only a two hour drive to Vegas I don't know if I'd ever go home. I wouldn't even need a room since I barely sleep, but a shower would be nice once in a while.

Okay, I've been there way too much. Three times in the past two months alone. In December when I stayed at Planet Hollywood they gave me an offer for a $17 round trip flight to Vegas that must be redeemed by July so I'll be going whether you guys join me or not.

Jan 11th 2008

These Casino's, don't they do these group comp things where they rent you a bus, and everyone gets on it for free and comes down and they comp your room and food and give you a whole bunch of chips for free? All Inclusive? Free?
