Gambling? Moi?

Reggie thought she'd like to learn how the slot machines work, so off we went to the Venetian Hotel.  Famous for its indoor canal and gondola rides, the hotel is worth a visit for the shops alone.

Lucky as she is, Reggie promptly won $30 at the penny slots.  We cashed in and strolled along The Strip to Caesar's passing the Mirage on the way.

Once there, she plunged into the penny slots again and eventually reinserted her winnings into the Las Vegas economy.

Poor again, we retrieved the car and moved south on The Strip to The Excalibre Hotel for a dinner show entitled Tournament of Kings.  Installed around an arena, the crowd was fed a no-utensils-roast-chicken with trimmings and drinks.  While we tore at the food with our fingers, the cast put on a Medieval jousting tournament, complete with knights on horseback, steel swords, armor, and of course, dancing maidens.  Another great show.  I think I liked the costumes and the horses best.

Sated, it was home for one last night.  Off to Arizona tomorrow.
