Wynn Las Vegas, July 2005

A few months after Wynn opened for business, I saw a promotional deal for two that was hard to ignore - roundtrip airfare from LA-Las Vegas, two nights accomodation and tickets to a show. All these for the equivalent price of a single room for a day! I took the "bait" and told my wife we were going to Vegas for a couple of days to check out the newest casino on the strip.

My wife and I do not enjoy gambling although we regularly visit Vegas. We do gamble a bit just to get a feel for the "games" but that's about it. There is so much to see and do in Vegas other than to spend your time inside the casinos - shows, many places of interest to see in and outside of the city, fine restos, and what nots. Las Vegas is a place you'll never get enough least, I don't. However, summer is not a good time to go there unless you are a cactus LOL.

Not bad at all!

Frontier is an old and smaller casino across LV blvd from Wynn. I prefer its atmosphere and its interesting offerings and their more generous slot machines (check out the billboard). My wife hates the place though LOL.

I hope I'd have a chance to visit Vegas someday. My friends in LA planned of taking me there last year, but after we all sat down to chat, eat, and reminisce, the trip to Vegas was forgotten!:D

Ganyan talaga ang nangyayari kapag binisita mo yung mga kaibigan at kamag-anak mo LOL. You get caught in the moment, you forgot your itinerary and you set aside what you came to see in favor of spending more time with them. OK's worth it and it gives you a good reason to revisit the place. This time to SEE the place LOL.
