Sin City. Lost Wages. The neon whore of the desert.
My favorite place in the world.
So this thread is to discuss Vegas, share stories, favorite spots (food, shows, gaming, etc.) and whine about how long it is before your next trip. Have a question to ask? Have advice to share? This is the place for it. Just don't tell me when to hit or stand. Unless I'm drunk. Which I probably am. Oh I'm sorry, I thought those were my chips.
First I'll share a few good sites;
Vegas Tripping is a great site for news and reviews. Decent writing, pretty informative.
I mean, you're gonna gamble a little bit right? Don't bet a penny on a coin flip without first going to this site. A Berkeley math professor who works in the casino industry. Pretty much everything about every legal game is explained in detail.
Cheapo Vegas. A fun site with a lot of good Info on pricing and value.
Me? I like to stay on the strip. Have done the Caesars properties (Caesars, Flamingo, and Planet Hollywood) but last time was really wowed at the Cosmopolitan. Vibe was kindy douchey/swanky at times, but the view from the balconies is incredible.
As far as gaming goes, I'm beginning to prefer downtown/Fremont. The last time we were there, had a blast. It really seems like it's coming back. We might even stay there on our next trip. I love the proximity of all the casinos, and the experience is a little more fun. it's better to watch a good street magician than to be handed porn. And I love porn.
So what's your Vegas trip like?
