Hello all. I want to start out by saying I've thoroughly enjoyed reading the TRs you've written and I've learned a lot from them. I hope to make some friends over the next couple of months as I wait for V-Day to arrive. Now on to business. I am treating myself and three friends to a week in Vegas in celebration of my 22nd birthday. We have reservations at MGM in the Grand Tower September 5-10. We're still debating getting a rental car for the trip. After reading many TRs raving about Mon Ami Gabi, I'm making a point to eat there. How far in advance should I make reservations? I also plan on stopping by BC to see Big Elvis. But, as my name indicates, my main focus on this trip is Hold'em. I'm looking for tables in the $2-4 or $3-6 range, with a good atmosphere and friendly dealers. Any advice on this subject would be especially appreciated. We also would like any suggestions on unique places that are must-sees for a first Vegas trip. I know there are tons, but just a few of the biggest is what I'd like to know. Also, what kind of rates could interested parties be expected to pay to visit a ranch? How far outside of town are they located? Well, I guess that's all for now. I'll update as more questions come up. Thanks in advance for any help you're able to provide me. If any of you happen to be in Vegas during that time, I'd be happy to meet with you. I could use some craps tips from some of you crafty veterans. Looking forward to talking with you all.
