    All of this has been covered in previous threads, I'm sure. Some of it is of interest to me specifically for my upcoming trip, some is general curiosity.

    All of the questions are intended to be short and simple to answer. If you can't answer a question, skip it. No opinion? Skip it.

    1. Prime rib dinner preference: El Cortez or California?
    2. Primary mode of transportation: shuttles/buses, cabs, rental car or personal vehicle?
    3. Hotels/properties where you stayed on your last Vegas trip.
    4. Every taken a solo trip to Vegas (other than on the company dime)?
    5. Year of your first visit to Vegas.
    6. Favorite non-casino/hotel destination. (Bar, restaurant or otherwise.)
    7. Favorite way to gamble.
    8. Is exercise/working out part of your daily itinerary? (Walking between casinos does not count.)
    9. Vegas coupon user?
    10. Biggest win.
