Only a hour flight away from Las Vegas we visit frequently, sometimes once a month. I'll be sharing our trip reports, tips on making the most of your stay in Vegas, reviews of restaurants and shows we have seen, along with my thoughts related to our favorite place to get away from it all.

Aria, Bellagio and Palazzo, July trip report (part 3 of 3)

We left Bellagio for Palazzo around 11:00am since we intended to eat breakfast at Grand Lux. We arrived quickly and since I'm Platinum level this year we went to Palazzo's VIP services to check in. I love this VIP room where there's never a line and it's also part of the platinum lounge so while I'm checking in Randy is ordering a cappuccino to drink. We were given a suite on the 48th floor and above was our view. After unpacking we had a quick brunch at Grand Lux where Randy had the egg sandwich.
I had the lunch special of the Sonoma Chicken salad which has fruit, pecans, bacon and goat cheese.
This was Randy's last day in Vegas as he needed to return to work to make up for my earlier gambling losses at Aria, so it was time to see if our luck for this trip was going to change. While we had lots of play and fun at Bellagio, and our losses weren't as bad as my earlier ones at Aria, we had lost there too and we were still hoping for a good win at some point to at least break even for this trip.
We started out playing all the new penny slots like WMS Alice and the Mad Tea Party that I had luck on earlier in the trip and old favorites like Kitty Glitter and Wolf Run and we were losing on everything. Finally decided to go see if Palazzo's,  $5 Wheel of Fortune wanted to be kind and we did hit a spin on it, but it only hit for $200 which basically broke us even for what we put in to get the spin. Decided to walk over to Venetian to see if luck was better there and it started to get exciting when we hit a bonus on  $1 DaVinci for $760.00.
