    Hey everyone,

    I've been a VMB lurker for a while and finally decided to post. I've enjoyed the board for a while and have just booked a trip for Vegas in November. The wife and I will be celebrating our 1st anniversary in Sin City. We are from a suburb just NW of Austin TX and our Nov trip will be our 5th time in Las Vegas.

    Wifey and I are low-rollers, pretty laid-back and easygoing...as such, we prefer the vibe downtown. We'll be staying at the 4 Queens and really enjoy casino-hopping on Fremont Street. I had actually booked at El Cortez, but I received the proverbial 'offer I could not refuse' from 4Q.

    We are really looking forward to our Nov trip...I'm even considering trying my hand at a Trip Report, since I've always found those to be very entertaining and helpful.

    Until next time...

    :peace:
     
    Vegas, baby!

    Welcome from another neighbor (NW Austin/Arboretum area).
    Loving Vegas since 2000, have never stayed off the strip, but really enjoyed downtown last trip, had good luck on slots at 4Q's and Fremont.

    Best of luck on your anniversary trip!

    Thanks for all the kind words and well wishes for our upcoming trip. I can't wait for the next trip...I'm sure you all understand the excitement and anticipation.

    I mostly play BJ and VP...though on this next trip I'd like to spend some time at the craps table. Wifey loves Pai Gow Poker and slots...and I'm lucky to have a gal that shares a love for Vegas.

    Like I mentioned in my original post, I'd like to try my hand at a TR this go around...so hopefully I'll have a lot of VP porn to post...after all, hope springs eternal.

    Peace out!

    Howdy! I have a cousin who now lives in the Austin area. She never was a fan of Wisconsin winters!
    Welcome to VMB and have a great upcoming trip!
