We rolled in late Wednesday night and checked into the Excalibur Hotel. So tired!!
I’ve stayed at the Excalibur before and it was never fancy but it was ok. Now it needs a huge facelift. It’s not a complete dump but it’s cheap for a reason.
On Thursday we started on the task at hand. I went to Chase bank to open an account and the banker Brad gave me some insight in apartments. We went to several places and I ended up really liking one he recommended. Day 1, I rented the apartment I have now. Mine is not as pretty as the model of course but I like it and I think it’s home, not just a box. It’s 2 bedroom and 2 bath and I’m ready for guests!!
We went downtown one day and there was a guy in Binions at the bank setting up tables and I asked to talk to him. I was hoping for a dealer school recommendation and he did not have one but said when I was finished they’d certainly call me back. He gave me his card and he was the assistant casino manager. Cool.
We went down the strip one day, ending up eating at the food court at Ceasar’s Palace, and then desert at the Cheesecake Factory, always a good idea. Then I made a great purchase of a phone case with a built in charger…big problem solved.
We watched the dancing light show at the Bellagio and got to take this pretty picture:
