Vegas with the Parents Day 2

Phillip and I didn't wake up until 1 pm Sunday afternoon. By the time I got up Peter had already checked into his comped room, so I went to check on mine and my room was ready also. Practically everyone had their own room by now.

After unpacking went down to table for a little bit until everyone was ready to go.

Since it was my parents first time in Vegas, we thought it would be great for them to see a show. We don't usually watch shows in Vegas much, but this was a good time. We decided to watch Michael Jackson One (Cirque Du Soleil) We bought tickets the day of the show. We watched the matinee show at 4:30. Tickets ended being about $130 per ticket.

We were sitting on the upper level in section 202 and the view was great.

The show was amazing. Not that much acrobatics as a usual Cirque show, but with the integration of the music it was awesome. I really enjoyed and it probably would see it again if someone wanted to see it.

After the show we tried to grab an early dinner before Nicole had to fly home for work.

Originally wanted to eat at the Burger Bar but it was over an hour wait. Next door was Slice of Vegas which had little to no wait.

The food was mediocre. I can see why there was hardly a wait.

After dinner Peter, Nicole and my parents headed back to the hotel so that Nicole can pack her things.

The rest of us stayed at Mandalay Bay and gambled a bit. Phat had some good luck with Lucky Lemmings a few years back, and hasn't seen the slot machine in a while. He found it at Mandalay Bay. it was not as giving as other slot machines.

A small bonus on Pirates slot at the Cosmopolitan.

Tried playing the Lord of the Rings slots again. Finally hit bonus and it was a total waste of time.

I was trying to get the Little Green Men blaster bonus video, but my memory card ran out of space. I ran upstairs to get it and while I was doing that Phillip hit the bonus and I missed the whole thing.

Eventually Phillip and I made it back to the Tarzan slots again.

Phillip hit bonus first and got about $200.

I hit bonus right after and got about $150 and I was able to see what the Firewheel was all about.

Hit a bunch of the bonuses on Paradise fishing, but it didn't pay out so well either.

Eventually we just started drinking and went on a rampage the whole night.
Played Pai Gow and drank a whole bunch. A few guys joined our table and they just happened to be from the Bay Area. The guys told me that there was a shooting across the street just moments ago.

Peter's friend Jen who lives in Vegas stopped by and visited us. Her younger brother was in town also visiting and so we decided to take him to Rhino.

Here we are outside of the Cosmo, because on our way back I was really drunk and had to throw up. Good thing we were almost back.

At this point I don't remember any of this. I don't even remember eating pizza.

I went to sleep right after. Peter went back to the casino floor and found Phat, Phillip and Pierce at the Baccarat table. They hit a really hot streak. They all changed in about $100 bucks, Phillip walked away with $2k, Pierce was a little over $2k and Phat at one point was at $4k, but he got a little greedy and ended up walking away with around $1k. Still not bad at all. I really missed out on that hot streak. Hopefully I can catch it next time.

That's it for day 2. Nothing much other than a lot of drinking and gambling.
