Arrived in LV via car(road trip) and checked into Bally's at 4pm today. Bally's has a Platinum line at check-in that was empty and waiting for the wife and I (Bonus#1). Gold line was long. Bonus#2, check-in clerk stated that as a Platinum player I get a FREE upgrade to North Tower. No $20 trick needed. So I would always book South Tower(cheaper) and get free upgrade. Went to room, North Tower 20th floor. Elevator opened and sign in hall said "Welcome to Diamond Floor". Score again! Room definitely updated recently. Nice king bed, couch and two desks. One desk, which I am at now has a granite top. Perfect setup for your laptop, desk lamp and plenty of electrical plugs.
Time to get Free 24hr. Buffet of Buffets. Part of new CET Visa package. Here is my strategy. Start with dinner at 8pm. This allows for breakfast, lunch and dinner the second day. Just remember, it's free so you don't need to get your moneys worth. Went to Paris buffet tonight. Long line, but(bonus time) special entrance for Platinum players. Door says Seven (?) and Diamond only, but Platinum allowed.
Time for some Poker. Tomorrow(Tuesday) we are going to "Raiding the Rock Vault' at LVH. I am a "Woodstock" veteran. The reviews are great and the hotel magazine has a 2 for 1 coupon. Tickets are only $54 each.
I'll continue tomorrow,
