I thought I would send a hearty hello as a long time reader - first time poster. My name is Matthew and I am 31. I make probably 2-3 solo trips a year to Vegas (the people I am friends with aren't a huge fan of Vegas). Very quickly, the three things I love about Vegas: My favorite part of my solo trips is finding this eerie calm in the chaos. I feel more a peace sitting and watching the world go by. Kind of an addition to the above. The overall monolithic feel to vegas hotels leaves me in awe. No matter how many times I go, I still feel this feeling of overwhelmed amazement every time I see the strip when flying or driving in. I also love to play Blackjack, and you can probably find me either at El Cortez (love that $5 min 2 deck game) when my bankroll is low, or The Aria when it is high (although I hear that the Aria got rid of $25 min 3-2 blackjack recently and that makes me super sad). I'm considering trying craps next time I am in Vegas. The general energy around a craps table has me interested. I learned how to play Blackjack by doing a lot of reading, but it took a friend of mine to show me how to play in the casino - there are definitely differences. I'm hoping that by signing up and saying hello, that I might find others in my place or a seasoned craps pro that would be interested in meeting up on my next solo trip to show me around a craps table. Anyway thank you for the invaluable information you have already given me and I hope that I in return might be able to share what little info I have on this beautiful city! I'll be in town between September 13 - 20 for a conference next so if anyone is interested in showing me round a craps table, I wouldn't say no!
