I went on a little staycation...hubby was busy racing over the weekend so I signed up for the big bingo tournament at Red Rock Resort here in Las Vegas. Got a room for Friday and Saturday and the entry for Saturday and Sunday. Bingo goes from 10 to 3 on Saturday and Sunday.
I arrived Friday afternoon checked into my beautiful room on the 15th floor with a view of the strip.
Now I must tell you, Red Rock resort is for those who want to come to Vegas but don't want to be on the "strip". You can go play on the strip, they even offer shuttles there. But you can get the Vegas experience with out all the crowds staying here.
It really has everything, a spa, restaurants of anything you want, BBQ, Italian, steakhouse and many more...plus you can walk out the back and you are at downtown Summerlin shopping district, plenty of stores for every ones tastes!
I chose to play some regular bingo on Friday, (won 125.00) then I had panda house for dinner and hit the hay, well, actually it was luxury bedding in my room, as I had a full day of bingo on Saturday!
Saturday I got up and went to the café for some breakfast then headed to bingo!
In the warm up session I won 2 rounds for 125.00 and 85.00, I am having fun now!
They serve you a wonderful boxed lunch plus you get breakfast and dinner buffet coupons to eat for free, all for the 99.00 entry fee! I only ate the lunch and bought my breakfast and dinners in restaurants, buffet is no fun alone! The lunch was a chicken salad sandwich, potato salad, orange, chips, and oatmeal raisin cookies! Yum!
After bingo was over, I headed to the shopping district and bought a lucky necklace and a silver and turquoise bracelet at the Brighton store. Back to the hotel for dinner, I had Lucille's BBQ:
I played a little keno, sat at the bar and watched baseball, then went to bed early for Sunday was a whole day of bingo again!
I decided to order room service for Sunday morning and spoil myself a little more:
Aaaaahhhhh, this is the life!
I got down to bingo, and my hubby shows up, he was bored and wanted to go to breakfast but my bingo started, so off he went to the cafe, on the last game of the warm up session I won! I got 250.00!! Whoohoo!!
We broke for lunch and I sat and talked with Charlie, then he decided to go to the movies and see the Madmax movie.
I went back to bingo for my last rounds, I did not win in the last rounds, but I did have a wonderful time on my little vacation!
I would recommend Red Rock Resort for a Vegas Vacation! Everyone was so nice and friendly and the hotel is very beautiful! I may go again sometime and have a spa day, I will let you know how that is!
