We are a group of 8 guys that get together every year for SB weekend. This was our 20th SB weekend in Las Vegas. It was one of the better trips.
Arrived Thursday and was able to check into our Flamingo room at 11 am. Asked for a complimentary upgrade on our comp deluxe room(no $20 trick), but was told the hotel was booked solid for SB weekend. He still gave us an upgrade(lol) to a Fab room with a fantastic view of the Bellagio fountains looking one way and the Mirage volcano looking the other way. (27th floor)
Now lets talk about the “not so fab” Fab Room. This is not an upgrade and I would never spend more for a Fab Room . It is just a Deluxe room with new beds and a new supposedly hardwood floor. The floor was laid by an amateur carpenter. You could see the white glue between the strips and on the baseboards. I’m not sure if it was wood or linoleum? But it was a free room for four days.
Went to Silverton Casino for 10 times odds craps. Picked up $4,000 on some great rolls and the weekend is now paid for.
Dinner at Lawry’s Prime Rib off the strip. The best Prime Rib in the world. They come to your table with a stainless steel cart. 4 large prime ribs(rare, med./rare, med, well) and they cut it in front of you. I made the reservations for the wrong night and they still seated me at a nice booth. Cost: Expensive.

Just back from LV Superbowl weekend. The Covers party Friday night was great. It was held at the Lagasse Stadium at the Palazzo Casino. What a great sports venue. We had a private area in the back of the room. Booze was flowing, had some food, shot some pool and met Mr. Covers.
Never hooked up with VG. How do you go to these meet & greets and find someone from online forums? Next year I suggest name tags.
Thanks again covers for a great event.
