The main reason for the trip was to play in the BCA National 8-ball Tournament at the Riviera. Although I finished one round short of a
payout, there's always some sight-seeing to do while there. Here are some of some of the best pix from the trip. You can see my BCA
and EnjoyPool.com Professional 9-ball Tournament* pix on Michigan's BCA web site by clicking here.
|Annette at her favorite Vegas restaurant, Emeril's New Orleans Fish House inside the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.||Emeril's banana cream pie is delicious!||We saw this at the Wynn. Very funny. John O'Hurley and the cast were excellent.|
|New York, New York Hotel & Casino from the Tropicana/Excalibur crosswalk.||The Excalibur Hotel & Casino from the crosswalk.||One of the best of Vegas is the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino, as viewed from The Hilton's nicely landscaped grounds.|
|The Luxor's front entrance is under this dude. Its pyramid is in the background.||A scene from inside the Luxor.||Woof! One of the two Egyptian dog statues "guarding" the Luxor's entrance.|
|Cruel joke or a sign used long ago? This pile of stuff and the $1.009/gallon gas sign is in back of a station behind the Riviera and across from the Hilton on Paradise Road. Their price that day was $3.119 per gallon for regular unleaded.||The Paris Hotel & Casino with a replica of that famous tower. This pic was taken from a crosswalk south of the Belagio. You can ride up to the top for a fee like at the Strat, but the Strat's view is much better.||This pic doesn't do justice to the leaded glass ceiling artwork inside the Belagio's main reception area. They also have the best buffet, in my humble opinion. It's $30, but well worth every penny of it.|
