This may have been done before, but since I'm new to the board and always enjoy Vegas stories, I'd like to hear what people's first experiences in Vegas were like. My first time to the "mecca" was in 1992. A group of friends had already been to Vegas and kept telling me I had to go on their next trip. Since I didn't shy away from gambling and drinking, it didn't take much to convince me. Seven of us flew out on a Friday, landing in Vegas about 9:30 in the morning. Within an hour of getting off the plane, we had our luggage, got a rental car, had hit a liquor store, and were walking into Crazy Horse II. We were the only people in the strip club and watched as they woke up a dancer that was sleeping in a booth with a blanket. Needless to say, the blanket went up on stage with her and I'm not sure how I even drank my beer with my mouth hanging wide open the whole time. After a short time there, we headed downtown to the Golden Nugget. As a newbie, I can't even describe how it felt to walk into the casino and see the sights and sounds of vacation heaven. I sat down with one of my friends, drank a beer, played some keno, and just took it all in...before embarking on a weekend of beer, gambling, sportsbooks, and no sleep. That first hour plus hooked me completely, and I've been going back almost annually ever since.
