We woke up after being pleasantly surprised at the quality of our hotel room. Though were were staying at the Riviera (for free, mind you) our room was nice!
+We made a specific point to ask for a mini fridge and a microwave. No micro, but we got the fridge.
+I packed lots of our own food so we didn't have to buy every meal. Some of the things I brought:
- Bagels (better than regular bread because they are thicker and sturdier when packing around)
- Lunch meat (remember how cheap I got it??)
- Milk + cereal
- Candy & popcorn for snacks
- The chocolate-covered strawberries that I wrote about in my first Vegas post
- Spoons/forks/knives, tupperwear and ziplock baggies
Next we hit up a buffet.
+We used my hubby's Urban Spoon app on his phone to find A) one that was reasonably priced (not the cheapest, not the most expensive…), and B) had lots of good reviews.
We settled on the one at Planet Hollywood.
+ While waiting in (the SUPER long) line to get in, my hubby googled “discount coupon for Planet Hollywood Buffet”. Remember to ALWAYS Google coupons/discounts before spending money, anywhere!
+While he looked it up on his phone I looked through a discount book I picked up for free at our hotel.
I'm not going to lie, besides the show it was our 2nd biggest splurge – $25 EACH, for lunch! A $50 lunch! My hubby was really hesitant but I pushed him to try it.
+We got an even greater discount on our tickets by opting to sit in the “splash zone” (first two rows). The stage is all water and they do some pretty crazy aerial stunts into it. We saved $30 by sitting there and I only got lightly splashed once. I thought our view was amazing, I'd sit there again for sure.
