Bad Travel Karma....


It's not like Miss Ginger used up all her good luck in Vegas on the slots... they just weren't that generous on this trip. There were high points of the vacation, for sure! The tasting menu at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant was fabulous, as always, and we had a great view of the Bellagio Fountains from our table. We found a great deal for our other meals, as well. By Vegas standards, $35 would not be an unheard of price for a single casino buffet. But with Harrah's fleet of Total Rewards Casinos comes the "Buffet of Buffets"... a 24 hour pig-fest that is nothing short of genius! For $35 they load the deal onto your players card, and you can dine at any buffet at any of their properties- from Caesar's, to Planet Hollywood, to Rio, and Paris.... Time it right by starting with a late breakfast one day and an early one the next and you could get 4 complete meals!! We also managed to get in our mid-Saturday sushi-fest tradition at Hyakumi at Caesar's Palace. Sushi in the desert seems a bit crazy, but it's consistently some of the best Miss Ginger has ever had!

The trip goes downhill on Monday, however. This is not what one wants to see after a holiday weekend of rich food, too much booze, and sleep deprivation! Apparently there was a mechanical issue on the runway in Newark, so the plane scheduled to whisk Miss G back to her kitties had to be replaced, rerouted, and reloaded for the route, resulting in a 5 hour delay!! At least Las Vegas has a beautiful new President's Club lounge that surprisingly, isn't too crowded! The day could be somewhat redeemed if the folks at Continental come through with the 1st class upgrade Miss G so richly deserves! At least then she could catch some Z's on the way home!

I'd probably bankrupt Harrah's if I took advantage of that buffet deal.

Hope you get the first-class upgrade and get home soon!!

I finally have my phone back, so let's chat this week.

XOXOXOXOXO
