    It been a while since I posted, only posted a few times anyway. We leave Tulsa on 3/12 for a much needed vacation, the past year has been rough to say the least. We lost our son in August and it's been a hard road. This will make our third Vegas trip, have stayed on the strip the last two, we like the vibe downtown better. Staying at Four Queens right in the middle of it all. Not fancy but I don't care about that. Our daughter who is 23 will be going for her first trip and first flight, should be fun. I hope to find a 5 dollar craps table to teach her the game. Any thoughts on 5 dollar craps downtown on Saturday night? Any advice on good steaks would be appreciated, I understand the Circus Circus steak house is really good despite the look of the rest of the property. I hope to give a detailed report maybe even live if I can swing it.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your son. A heartache no one should have to bear.
    Comps at the 4Qs add up quickly, they're very generous with them. The steak house at 4Qs is Hugo's Steak House and is a great traditional old-style steak house. I was pleasantly surprised. They have a great salad cart that they come and make your salad tableside and they have great steaks/seafood. Also, if you're paying with comps the prices are lower than what's printed on the menus. A great deal.
    $5 craps on a Sat night? Possibly, but the table will be very crowded and it will be difficult to play.

    Thanks, we will check out Hugo's. If we can find a 5 dollar table Saturday I'm sure we will on Sunday or Monday.
    Our daughter wants to jump out of the strat tower, I told her Good luck and Have fun. We plan on taking her to Hoover Dam and showing her around all the strip sites. We are low rollers anyway, I play tables and the wife plays slots.

    For a great meal Andiamo's at the D !!, They have a bubble Craps Machine that has $1 min at the DT Grand, Perfect for the learning curve.

    Also, so sorry for your loss. You can't go wrong at Hugo's. The ladies will both be presented with a rose upon arrival and they will love the comp chocolate dipped strawberries on the dessert platter.
    Mid- March should present plenty of $5 craps downtown.

    So sorry for your loss.

    As for the Craps, $5 won't be hard to fine at Boyd Properties. Fremont has $3 craps game, with 2xs odds only though.

    Thank you all for the great tips and condolences. We will definitely try some of the suggestions. We are so looking forward to getting away and it's just seven days away. We have guardianship of our young (2) and (11 months), grandchildren and we aren't 25 anymore, lol.
