Las Vegas II—5:21 PM
Having experienced Las Vegas once, we knew what to expect the second time around. This time, we did our homework. Andy made reservations on the right day so we could afford to actually stay in Vegas this time. We enjoyed one night at the beautiful Treasure Island Casino, where the blackjack dealers are the best in town.
Joe taught us blackjack, and Andy and I went nuts all night the first night. In the morning, I went for a swim while the casino did some loud construction right above our heads, starting around 7 am. We made a little more from Treasure Island's blackjack tables before heading out to enjoy the rest of Las Vegas where Andy would continue to rake in the chips while my luck turned sour. Andy and Joe enjoyed the rollercoaster at New York, New York, while I enjoyed a nap.
We appreciated the amazing, spellbinding Fountains of Bellagio, ate at Bellagio's spectacular lunch buffet, and gazed at the glitz and glamour - and the near-complete Paris and Venetian casinos.
