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.

Girl's Just Want To Have Fun or Liz's June Birthday Party in Vegas!

It's June 23rd, so it's time to head out for what is becoming my annual Liz's Birthday Las Vegas Trip!

This year I was thrilled to have Roz with me on my Southwest flight. Where's our husbands? Home taking care of business, it was time for the girl's to have fun! Alright, I know lately it seems like it's always my time to have fun, but I promise you that before I leave on what are usually short little trips my family has lots of home cooked food in the fridge and they are looking forward to a break in my nagging err suggestions.
Time went fast at the airport with a friend to chat with and our Southwest flight was uneventful. Roz and I arrived in Vegas around noon and as always Palazzo had sent a limo for me. Due to being busy this weekend with the EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) we were with a driver and limo contracted out to Venetian/Palazzo. This worked out in our favor since Roz was staying at Wynn and our driver on learning this offered to drop her off at Wynn first! During our drive to Wynn we were entertained by our driver with stories of the crazy goings on with the EDC group running around the casinos and streets.

After dropping Roz off at Wynn and as we were pulling up at Palazzo I got a text from T asking me if I had time to meet real quick before their massage appointment at Canyon Ranch Spa and I replied sure and told them I was checking in and would meet them at the VIP check in area. Check in was super fast so I exit the VIP lounge area and I'm looking around for T when I run into Top Dollar Player from the Slot Fanatics forum! What a sweetheart and it was so great to meet him. Well to make a long story shorter and for me to look less like the ditz I was that day (blaming that on only 2 hours of sleep the night before) T was Top Dollar Player and he was the one that was texting me.  I had confused him with one of my friends who also goes by the nickname of T and who was in town and while I'm running around looking for that friend while talking to him I make him late for his spa appointment before figuring out later from the texts sent back and forth that I had been talking to him all the time!
After leaving T and going to my suite and unpacking, instead of taking the nap that I obviously needed I run down to the casino to get my slot fix. Practically the first slot I see is a new favorite of mine the 3d Twilight Zone and I have some middling bonuses and hits from it.
After taking a quick look around at Palazzo and getting a bit upset that a lot of slots had been removed again to make way for those silly poker tables I head out to Venetian. Rumor had it that Willy Wonka was getting installed this week in some casinos and I felt like I had scored when I found it right away when walking into the Venetian Casino.
There were some employees around WW admiring the graphics and sounds who told me it had just been installed the night before. One suit told me he was planning on playing it soon but of course at another casino since they aren't allowed to play at their own.
