Greetings fellow VMBers! I've been on this forum for a few months now and this is my first post to introduce myself. I've especially been enjoying all the Trip Reports from fellow degenerates and visitors who seem to appreciate the best parts of Vegas like my wife and I do! We usually try to go a few times a year and eat at the great restaurants, see a couple of shows, gamble a bit, and of course shop! (at least she does... I just carry her bags and attempt to win more shopping money...) We are going to be in town for our 3rd anniversary in November (18-23) and to see Celine Dion perform at Caesars. Some of our Vegas Faves (see if you agree) Restaurants : Best Asian (Japanese / Sushi) : (tie) Nobu - Caesars / Blue Ribbon (Cosmo) Best Asian (Vietnamese) : Pho Kim Long Best Asian (Korean) : Dae Jang Keum Best Asisn (Chinese) : (tie) Hakkasan / Tao Best Fast Food : In N Out Burgers Best Steak : Jean Georges Steakhouse Best Breakfast : Mon Ami Gabi Best Italian : (tie) Giada's / Il Mulino Best Overall : Joel Robuchon Best Nightclub : Omnia Hotels Best Lobby : Caesars Best Rooms :Encore Best Service : Encore Best Pool : Caesars This list may change after our next trip... but we'll see! Being in the hospitality industry, I have a unique outlook on the restaurant / club scene and I'm very interested in not only the menu / goof quality but the service and back of house operations as well. I have definitely incorporated a number of concepts / ideas from Vegas restaurants in my restaurants and will continue to do so. I believe in spending our hard earned money on *experiences* as the memories last a lifetime! We always have such a memorable vacation in Vegas and hope it continues! As far as the gambling side goes, I've been 3-0 the last few times, and I think it's mainly because i no longer chase losses (as hard as it can be sometimes - just one bet can get me even...). And I have just been playing hit and run with short short sessions like $100 here and $200 there and the next thing you know, those small wins add up! We can't wait to return in a couple of weeks, and if there will be any members here that will also be around, let's get together and celebrate! Cheers!
