An August 2004 trip to Las Vegas by Gnipgnop

Quote: Did you say Vegas? Do you really mean we're going to Vegas? I can't believe my eyes, we're here! Oh my gosh! Wow! Is that for real? So what's to tell? Because what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. (ha ha)

Overview

Seeing the inside of these grand casinos, watching a Las Vegas show for the first time (O, Celine Deione), taking a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and watching the water show at the Bellagio, playing blackjack and the slots. Dining in fine restaurants and coming home broke, and not even giving a "hoot". That's what this trip was all about.Quick Tips: Plan your budget before you go and have fun. Rent a car, take a trip to Henderson, and see more progress growing up out of the desert. This land is your land, this land is my land -- drink it in and appreciate its beauty.Best Way To Get Around: The best way to get around is to walk, if you can.

Best Things Nearby:The Strip, of course. Also, we could walk to the shops across the street in the Aladdin -- I believe it's called the Desert Passage. There are great restaurants and bars in this enclosed mall and also unique boutiques, as well as plenty of action going on everywhere.

Fix

Restaurant

Before attending the performance of "O" in the Bellagio, we made reservations at FIX, the restaurant within the hotel. We were seated immediately and were treated as though we were the only people present. We were served our drinks immediately, and they were of excellent quality. The wait people were very professional and courteous. They actually smiled when you asked them a question. Our dinners (there were four of us) consisted of filet mignon, Crown-roasted rack of lamb, chicken of some type, and blackened salmon. We all shared a taste of each others' meals in order to sample these items. I can honestly say that everything was superb. A little pricey, but well worth it.
