    You probably know all of this, but here is some Downtown Info

    Went to the Redwood at California, good restaurant, good ambiance, reasonable prices. I had the Porterhouse special and thoroughly enjoyed it, but the best was yet to come - it comes with a dessert which is only served with the Porterhouse special. Dessert was ice cream in an apple streudel, it was deeelicious. My friend is not into desserts so I forced myself with another, a shame to let it go to waste.

    I enjoyed a bit of eating and gambling there (Pasta Pirate and Lapperts Ice cream).
    You have *got* to try Lappert's ice cream in the California. Yes, I'm a teeny bit prejudiced because it's from Kauai, Hawaii (my favorite place on earth, the sacrilege!) but my friend last year tried it and proclaimed it better by far than Ben & Jerry's, and she & I are native Vermonters!

    http://www.ethelm.com/ is located at the California

    Golden Gate (downtown) has ‘The San Francisco Shrimp Bar and Deli’ which is the home to the world-famous 99-cent shrimp cocktail. I (and many others) do not consider a trip to Vegas to be complete without one or two of these.

    Good/Cheap Food Downtown:
    Golden Gate: 99-cent shrimp cocktail.
    Golden Nugget: Carson Street Café
    Golden Nugget: Sunday Champagne Brunch
    Fremont: Tony Roma's http://www.tonyromas.com/
    Golden Gate: Bay City Diner

    Have a great trip.

    I appreciate all your advice and will do all the fun stuff I can squeeze in. My plans are kind of screwed up now that Binion's is shut down. Hopefully it'll be back up and running soon. This was bound to happen sooner or later though. Maybe someone worthy will buy it and better manage the operation! Either way I am not going to let it change the fact that I am coming back a big winner!!!!
