So this is the part where I tell you all about the bachelor party. Unfortunately for you, that story stays in Vegas, or at least off the internet.

Instead I'm going to talk about hotel rooms. Our hotel room was pretty normal. However, we did manage to get a ridiculously low rate through some shadowy deals. You see, we know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, who works for MGM/Mirage. You would think something so far removed from the actual hotel patrons would fall completely apart. Lucky for us, it didn't, and we got the cheapest rate I've ever seen in Vegas.

Another couple from our extended group stayed at the MGM. When they arrived their room was trashed. For whatever reason, the cleaning crew hadn't gotten around to cleaning it. To make up for the mistake, the hotel upgraded them from this to this. Not to shabby.

Yet another couple's room, the happy couple in this case, had the best view by far. Where we were stuck looking out at the New York-New York roller coaster from our room, they had a view of the Bellagio fountain. At night, the fountain runs every 15 minutes.

We sat, in the dark, in their giant bathroom, and looked down upon the best attraction in Vegas.

Jealous? why yes, yes we were.

Yeah I really dug our upgraded hotel room. It was worth the hassle and being a few blocks off the strip.

I won't comment on the bachelor party either, but our cab ride out there was awesome. It was literally the Serbian cab driver from Kids in the Hall, but with more swearing. :)

Aye, Las Vegas is another city I hope never to drive. The cabbies are just too scary.
