Last Minute Staycation

Yesterday I came across $49 room rates at MGM. The promotion also includes $25 dining credit and 2 free drinks. I shared this with Frank and it took seconds for him to say book it.

Saw it was good Sunday and Monday. My request for days off were approved. We have gift certificates that we planned to use at Brand on Feb 8. See, that would be the first day Frank and I had off together since December when his brother visited - we were going to celebrate. As you might imagine our plans changed. We'll now use those certificates toward our stay, and we'll eat at Fiamma. They, along with other MGM restaurants, have winter tasting menus available until March 31, 2009.

I have a nice long weekend coming up and two full days off with Frank. Yeah, I am pretty excited.

I'm so envious!!! The Fiamma menu didn't excite me as much as a couple of the others, but I'd really like to try them all. Do you think you'll be able to combine the dining credit with the winter tasting menu price?

Looking forward to your review!

We've done most of them. Pearl, Diego, Shibuya, and Puck are left. Pearl seems pricey. We may try one of the others, in addition to Fiamma.

When we've used dining credits in the past, we were directed to charge the meal to the room and the credit showed when we checked out. I don't see it being a problem.
