spent 7 nights in las vegas, starting monday of memorial day, may 28th, then the next monday night in a lovely baymont suites motel in salt lake city, courtesy of the competent and courteous employees of delta airlines. so really this should maybe be titled from airport quizno's with vouchers to delmonico...cause the mcdonalds was a lot better than the concourse d quizno's! spent the first 3 nights at the palm, solo, mostly playing poker and poker tourneys, and checking out the wsop. first night literally got the mcdouble and fries and ate in the room. never left the universe of the palms/gold coast/ rio for that three days. mcdonalds..their number one attribute is their consistency. palms buffet...perfectly adequate, especially at half price and a line pass for palms players card holders in t he month of may. would i make a special trip there, even at half price? no gardunos...just close it already, the employees act as if it has happened. cortez room at gold coast...not the best service, but certainly good steakhouse food, value priced, and they get the job done without a lot of flash or the costs associated with it. the sports grill at the rio...those chicken wings really do make a meal. this trip was mostly for my sons 21st birthday present, we also attended a trade show, and our daughter flew in from seattle and joined us on friday, son and my wife came in on thursday morning, and moved on over to the treasure island to meet them. we had meals at the palm steakhouse, bouchon, kahunaville, delmonico, joes stone crab in the forum shops, gilleys, toby keiths, the coffee shop at ti, the bellagio buffet. will try to give a little blurb on them all later, but if you have any specific questions about any of these, fire away, i will try to answer!
