We told you about our first time... visiting Vegas, that is. And, some of you have told us about yours. Now it's time for another VegasChatter member, Anderguy, to tell you about losing his Vegas virginity. He shares the pics that prove it, too!
"I went to Vegas for the first time last February for my 50th birthday. I couldn't pull off completely free, but I think I did nicely: I used an award ticket on Southwest Airlines; I negotiated a discounted rate for a Strip View room at the Tropicana with a waiver of the resort fee; I saw Peepshow (front row dead center) and Zumanity (also a pretty good seat) using promo codes to score discounts."

This was our view from the Koi sushi restaurant inside Planet Hollywood, one of our favorite sushi restaurants on the Strip. The best part about this view? We had prime viewing of the Bellagio fountains.
Even better, we didn't need to grease anybody with tightly rolled twenties to get this view, on a Saturday night, either. We called Koi at 7pm, asking and receiving a reservation for two people at 8pm. When we arrived, we were politely told that we couldn't carry in any outside drink (we were swigging a mini-bottle of Chardonnay). So we chugged our vino and then the hostess promptly sat us in the intimate back room seating area, which you see on the restaurant website.
If you went to Spy on Vegas' open bar at Koi Lounge last week, you might have enjoyed the dimly lit, sultry yet still casual atmosphere of the lounge which is connected to the Koi sushi restaurant inside Planet Hollywood. But if their dishes and drinks were a bit much for your price range, consider going back there during Koi's Happy Hours from 5 to 7 pm every day. Yes, that's right. Every day. Even on weekends.
The lounge's signature drinks, like the Yin and Yang (made with Citron Buddha's Hand vodka) and the Asian Pear along with appetizers are half price. If you stay long enough on a Friday or Saturday, you might run into their weekend late night happy hour from 10 to midnight. Another Yin and Yang for our yang? Don't mind if we do.
