My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Day 8 the last full day of Diva Las Vegas

Today is the last full day of Diva Las Vegas and again we all slept in. The ear plugs we bought yesterday worked great last night so we got good rest. Kim and I went down to get breakfast while Petra and Cassandra were going golfing again, this will be there 4th tome golfing this week.

Kim and I went next door to the flamingo to their buffet again. They have a really good buffet and the price was basically the same as just going and getting breakfast in their restaurant and you get a much better selection. We had an awesome breakfast and it was just so much fun.

After breakfast we decided to go downtown Las Vegas to the Freemont Experience, Kim has not been to Las Vegas in a long time and most of the strip has changes since she was here last but the downtown casinos are pretty much the same and we both wanted to go down there as it really is a pretty cool place and reminds you a lot of the old Vegas. We had a blast down here walking around, we even went into one casino and the pit bosses were all dressed up in black suits with hats on and looked like a gangster from the movies.

We went into Bensons casino and were walking through and they were just opening a blackjack table and it was a $3 table which is really cheap for Las Vegas, normally you have a hard time even finding a $5 table and for me I enjoy playing but look at it as entertainment and not a way to win a lot of money so the cheaper the better. Any way we sat down while she was shuffling the cards. A couple others sat down also. Well as the dealer was dealing the second hand they changed the table amount to $5 but let us stay betting $3 because we were there before which was cool. Any way we played for about 10 more minutes and yet another pit boss came over and changed it to $10a hand but again said we could stay with our bets as we were there already, now that is inflation. We played here maybe 45 minutes to an hour before we cashed our chips in and went back out to the pedestrian mall and walked around some more.

Now one thing they have a lot of down here and even on the strip they have people dressed up as different people like Michael Jackson, Show girls I even saw transformers walking around and they do this as a way to make money. They will take pictures with you for tips. They can’t actually charge you but they do expect a tip. Last year I got pictures with the show girls so this year I didn’t need to get a picture. We spent a couple hours down here before we caught a cab back to our hotel to clean up for dinner tonight.

We were having our final Diva Las Vegas dinner tonight at a place I think was called Carmin’s which was across the street from our hotel at Caesar Palace in the forum shops. We all met at 6 and walked across together. The dinner was really good. Julie, Kim, Brenda and I all sat together for dinner and of course we had to get a final picture. It was a fun night.

It was after 9 when we got our bill, Km and I were the first to leave as Kim flies out early tomorrow, her and Cristine are on the same flight at 7 am so they need to be to the airport by 5 am. We got back to the casino and stopped at a blackjack table to play for a while.

The table we sat at had a guy who had been drinking and he was playing between $200 and $500 a hand and he was actually winning. We played maybe an hour and had fun and I won a little money. I am not sure as I have spent a lot more cash this year but I think I am ahead on the gambling a little. It was probably 11 pm when we got back to the room to go to bed and will get up at 4 am. I am driving Kim and Cristine to the airport and hopefully be able to get a couple more hours of sleep in the morning. It has been such a fun and fast week and having Kim here made it so much more fun and special as I got to share it with her and spend time with her.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

Day 7 just a day for us to do what eve we want

Well today we did not sign up for any of the Diva Las Vegas activities as we wanted one day to just do what we wanted. some of the girls Cassandra, Julie, Petra and Veronica were going golfing again and I wanted to spend the day with Kim which I was really looking forward to. Now we slept in as we got to bed late last night and the outside club between our hotel and Harrah’s was going late ad were loud so we didn’t get to sleep till after 2 am.

It was after 10 when we were ready and out the door so the first stop was to get some breakfast. We walked next door to the Flamingo and wen to their café as we wanted something simple today. We had a great meal but in the end it was only $2 less then we paid for the buffet yesterday so not a good deal money wise. Yes food is not cheap on the Las Vegas strip at the major hotels but then I knew this before we came, it is part of what you pay for I guess. We did have a great breakfast and it was about 11:30 when we left and we were going to explore the Las Vegas strip today sightseeing and check out the casinos as Kim has not been in Las Vegas for 30 years and a lot has changed.

We walked down by the Venetian again and on the way the hotel has a Walgreens in it so we stopped to get ear plugs so we could sleep. Now this is not your normal Walgreens as it has 12 checkout lanes and was huge but we did find earplugs.

Our next stop was the Wynn and we walked around the outside looking at the waterfall, yes this casino has a huge mountain in front with trees and a big water fall, probably 150 feet tall and very beautiful. All these casinos are built to attract people so they spare no expense.

Now we walked over the strip to the Treasure Island, yes they have built big sky walks as there are so many people and the Las Vegas strip has so many cars on it they don’t want people walking through the traffic. We went inside this casino and checked out some of the decorating they did inside and again just beautiful. Then we walked out on the dock out front, yes this casino has a big bay in front with a wood walkway across peers to get inside and they have two ships out front that they do pirate battles at night.

We then walked up by Mirage and checked out their fountains, this is really cool at night as they have flame that shoots out and it looks like a volcano erupting but they only do this at night. He next casino was Caesars which is huge as they have the forum shops there which is a full mall and like the others it looks like you are walking outside on the streets, we didn’t go in here as the restaurant we are going to Friday night is inside the forum shops.

We then walked down and checked out the fountains at the Bellagio, these are really beautiful also but again I think during the day they only do them every hour or so. We waited a while and then walked back over the street to the Paris as we were going to go up in the Eiffel tower. Yes the have a half replica of the Eiffel tower. We got inside abut 2 and it turns out during the week they don’t open it till 4 so we missed this too. We walked around inside and checked out things.

We had walked quite a bit so we decided to go back to our casino and see what others were doing. The 4 that went golfing were still gone and the others weren’t ready yet so Kim and I played some blackjack and had a great time. Finally the other girls came down and we all played blackjack for a while. Kim and I were hungry so we asked to see what the other girls wanted to do and you know what happens when you ask 9 woman what they want to do, everyone had their own thoughts and most weren’t ready to eat so Kim and I went up stairs to the restaurant to get dinner. We had only been at our table for maybe 5 minutes and here comes the rest of our group. Evidently they had finally decided to get something to eat.

After dinner we all went back downstairs and played some blackjack. We had a great time and today was made special by being able to spend the whole day with Kim and show her around. It was late when we all went up to our rooms and the music was loud again so Kim and I were glad we had our ear plugs. Just an awesome day today.
