Heading to Vegas 4th of July weekend. I used to stay on the strip exclusively until a couple years ago, when I started staying downtown. Now, most trips I never even go to the strip at all. But, I am seriously thinking about getting a room on the strip this trip. I would like to hit up a nice pool, check out some good black chip blackjack tables, and just to do it different. I also want to put a few hours in at some MGM properties so I can get on their radar, again, after not giving them any play for the past few years. I still get comp offers from V/P, TI, and low end CET properties(because of my local casino play at Tunica/Cherokee). I know I will wander downtown at least a night or two because I like that environment. Chances are I wind up getting a room downtown at some point too. I guess I could just stay downtown but FORCE myself to go gamble on the strip at least one night. I cant decide. It is weird how what I like about Vegas changes over time.
