Aji Spa & Salon at Wild Horse Pass

Aji Spa and Salon is located in a secluded area of the desert, just south of my backyard.  Not quite walking distance for me, it is still very close by, and I had never been there… until this week.

The website is horrible and provides little information, it is really no wonder this place is so overlooked.  Fortunately, Travel Zoo had a facial or massage with Champagne spa package that made this Day Spa in the desert worth trying. (The website received a facelift in 2015).

The Aji Spa is located offsite from the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Casino & Showroom, near the side of the hotel surrounded by golf course.  Hotel guests informed me of a complementary hotel shuttle to the Casino, Outlet stores, and around the resort since it is so spread out.  Very smart idea!

I Forgot to Cash Out My Slot Machine Winning Voucher

Last year I went to Las Vegas. I normally play at the tables and a little bit of slot machine gambling.  On my way back to the airport I found at $58 slot machine voucher for Treasure Island.  No worries, I love Vegas and I will be back.i-forgot-to-cash-out

I still had the voucher 18 months later.  Opps.  I had not gone back to Las Vegas.  Until now.  I tried using my voucher in a slot machine at TI, and the message on the screen informed me to see a cashier.  I took my voucher to the cashier and she manually entered the ticket number in her system, but it was not found.  The cashier assured me, this happens all of the time, not just at TI, but at all of the casinos.

The cashier called her manager and the manager searched the archive data and verified my voucher was still good!  The cashier payed out my voucher and I promptly deposited that money right back into another slot machine.

I double-checked to make sure I cashed out all of vouchers before leaving this time, but just in case I find any hidden vouchers, I know they will still be good for my next visit.

 

Wild Horse Showroom

I have a new favorite Casino showroom at Wild Horse Pass!

Showroom Stage
Showroom Stage

The showroom is intimate and every seat has a fantastic view, similar to Celebrity theatre, but attached to a casino!  The theatre is split between 2 tiers.  The lower level starts stage side and radiates out for up close view of the performers.  The top tier is angled so that every seat has a perfect view of the stage.  Even the last row in the far corner has a perfect line of sight view of the stage.  It is far superior to other local casino venues.

Behind the top tier seating is a fully stocked bar for convenient beverages.

There are some great restaurants for pre-show dinner, a variety of lounges for post-show drinks, and gambling.  Oh, the gambling!  There is ample parking, taxi service, and did I mention the gambling?  This is great venue to enjoy a show, a nice meal, and plenty of entertainment for a fun night out, even if you do not want to gamble.

I am ready and eager for the next intimate show at Wild Horse Pass Showroom!

 

Vegas 101 (The Basics)

First trip to Las Vegas?  Or, has it been awhile since your last visit?  Here are a few tips and basic suggestions to help ensure your visit is enjoyable and FUN!Las Vegas (101)

Determine what kind of vacation you are looking for before you book your trip.  If you are looking for a wild time to party and are willing to pay top dollar, then New Year’s Eve, any week in March for Spring Break, Fourth of July, Memorial day weekend, and Labor day weekend are the best.  The long-weekend exception is Thanksgiving, since most people want to eat turkey at home with the family, Vegas is less expensive, less crowded, fewer families, and super fun.  If you are like me, and you would rather a better value for your accommodations & prefer to avoid the crowds and lines, then I suggest weekday visits, off-season (when kids are in school, both college kids and younger kids since some families insist on bringing children to the city of SIN).  Double-check for large conventions in town during your visit.  It is probably better to avoid the Vegas Porn convention if you do want to bring your children, or parents for that matter!
