When we got to Nevada, it was a toasty 110 degrees. We first stopped at the Hoover Dam and joined the hundreds of other tourists. When we got to Vegas, we first stayed at the Golden Nugget in downtown, not on the strip. We were totally clueless about the whole free valet parking and bellboy services
Downtown Vegas was slightly boring if we weren't gambling money except for the pool which had a shark tank and a slide that went through it. After some drinking, swimming, site seeing, and being in the hole about $200 each, we left the Nugget and heading for the Flamingo on the strip. We weren't too excited because we were done loosing money and weren't in the mood to gamble. So when we got the Flamingo, we were checking in and decided to just go the pool until Ashley flew in. We ended up meeting a bachlorette party, a couple of millionaires, and some dudes that had access to a cabana next to the pool. It got a little messy for us after that and met a lot of cool new people. I drank a little too much and slept from about 8pm to the next day. The next day down at the pool, we saw all the same people we saw before and started drinking again. Some were in the same condition I was in. That evening, John, Ashley and I were so tired and lazy, we ordered room service for dinner, ate it in our beds, and took a 3 hours nap. That's what sun and booze does to you. We got up, went to a burlesque show at midnight, and then started to gamble. At about 1:30am, I went up to the room to change my shoes (my feet were killing me), so I told Ashley and John that I would be right back. At the room, there was a knock at the door, I didn't think it was John so I looked through the peep hole and it was a blond woman. I put the lock on the door and opened it an inch asking if I could help her; she said "Did you order some entertainment?' I said No Sorry and closed the door. Some sort of stripper/hooker came to our room! I ran down to the casino and asked them if they ordered anything and explained what happened. Neither of them ordered the hooker.
We ended our gambling at about 4am with me being even for the week and John being down for the week. I'm not sure what Ashley lost but I think $80 of it was on Roulette. The next morning, Ashley got up at like 6 to catch her flight and John and I left the hotel at 9 and headed for Los Angeles.
