First time poster. I will be going to Vegas 5 times over next 8 months for conferences. (Paris—7/15-7/19, Cosmo, Caesars, Wynn, Bellagio) Four Previous Vegas trips: Aria, Wynn, Encore (all for conferences/work) and MGM (family Vacation). In the past these conferences usually take up a lot of my time as I am often doing a presentation or going to multiple meetings. When I do gamble I play BJ, baccarat, craps, and VP. I haven’t had a chance to really explore Vegas. Never been downtown. With these upcoming trips I am attempting to minimize attendance and commitments in order to finally have a chance to enjoy Vegas Essentially I’d like to create a bucket list to be accomplished over the course of these 5 trips. I am soliciting recommendations. In return I will provide trip reports and detail my debauchery. Will provide chip and VP porn for your enjoyment. TR will not necessarily be posted live as I find it is usually best to wait a day and consider the implications of my posts. Key info for recommendations: Have markers set up at Paris, Cosmo, Aria. Prefer not to travel with more then 10K in cash hence the markers were set up. Not a high roller—will throw down more for better BJ and VP odds but can really enjoy a table with other low rollers if we have a good group and dealer. Likes: Beer. BJ (inc Free Bet), baccarat, craps, VP; Aria, MGM. I can appreciate a good bar with good VP and kill several hours there. Good food at reasonable prices although I will drop some cash on a good steak. Smoking (when drunk). People watching (lobby bar at 4 AM—fend off hookers and watch the drunk girls in too high heals return from the clubs—hilarity ensues!). **I seem to have some unexplained curiosity despite no exposure to the following: SLS, Cosmo, Downtown. Dislikes: Smoking (when sober). Slots. Wynn/Encore—just do not like it. No good reason for said opinion. 6/5 blackjack (will trigger acts of violence if encouraged to play). Drunk assholes. Attempting to walk mid strip Fri/Sat night. My “working” bucket list from South to North: Working Title: Bat Country Bucket List *???—Denotes open to suggestions at said location. May just pass on these casinos all together. Mandalay Bay—Foundation Room for a quality drink and view of the strip Luxor--Carrot Top (he amuses me—sorry); Tender Excalibur—???; nothing looks appealing unless I feel a need to harass the bachelorette parties Tropicana—play some table games just so I can say I did before this goes the way of the Riviera.
