As you can probably tell from my ID, I live in Green Bay. We have a decent enough casino here and the tribe just plowed about $30M into a recent reno. Rules on BJ are pretty good (H17, DA2, DAS, RSA-I think). Craps is decent with 5x odds. I'm a pretty low roller and the craps tables are $5, so that is nice. (I usually play max odds, though). Anyway, I've only been to Vegas once--about 8 years ago. Stayed at the Excalibur, visited NYNY, the MGM and a dump whose name I simply cannot remember. Always wanted to get back, never worked out. But! My sister and brother-in-law are runners--an activity I've absolutely no interest in--and they are doing the half for the Run the Strip in November and I'm tagging along. Since that's really gotten me excited again for Vegas, I really started poking around and found VMB. Looking forward to great tips on restaurants and a few things to do...but of course, the gambling. (My sis and BIL don't really play but I love it). Glad to be here and thanks for the insight from all the regulars (I've been lurking a few days).
