What happens in Vegas - stays in Vegas!

One of my favourite places to stay in Vegas - the Flamingo Hilton. Not the most elegant of the hotels on the Strip - BUT - you can see so much of the Strip from the windows of your room!

Used to go every year. Started out just hubby and I, then we took my sister-in-law who enjoyed it so much she invited her daughter-in-law to go the next year, then a niece the following year. The group expanded every year and the enjoyment increased. Can't remember how long its been since the last trip - probably at least ten or twelve years. We used to love to stay in the garden rooms at the Sands.. It was so central to the other iconic casinos close by. I would guess the Flamingo is probably the last one still standing!

Thinking it must be getting that long for us too. We too used to go pretty well every year. Amazing place - whether you gamble or not!

Never been, it's on the bucket list ... Just not too close to the top.

We used to go every other year but then slacked off. Last was 2 years ago and we said that might be the last time. Stayed at different hotels but Imperial Palace was the one we went to most often.

Actually we saw them implode the Hacienda Hotel one New years Eve. The whole strip was closed off to cars and a million people walkedthe street. The only way to stop was to walk on an angle into a hotel because the crowd just carried you. I.m glad we saw it but would not want to do it again

Many years ago we stayed at the Flamingo before it was demolished and rebuilt.

That should be a great show Retired. May I ask what the price of tickets are now? Last show we saw the tickets were just under $100 each...can't remember who it was! Obviously the price impressed me more than the performance!

I believe they started at $55.00 -- $150.00 and $205.00. We are 10 rows from the stage so you know what we paid

Do you remember the days when there were NO assigned seats? You just tipped the doorman - and found out the hard way how much a good seat was worth.
