    You have 2 good in house food choices. We ate at Andiamo at the D, and had 1 meal and 1 happy hour visit at Oscars in the Plaza a few weeks ago. Both were great!

    Moved downtown a few years ago, and haven't stayed on the strip since.

    Have a great time!

    Way to go Blonde! If I were a betting person ?????, I'd wager that the pool, probably all pools, will be open by then.

    I just said that because they are renovating the Plaza pool.
    I should have said I hope it is ready by then.:D

    Thank you Marky!

    I posted a trip report this past June outlining our first stay downtown. I got tons of nice feedback on it. Will try to find the link. Go play blackjack at El Coetez. It's like old Vegas and so great.

    Hi Blonde 4 ever

    Will also be downtown at the same time. Booked into Four Queens from the 16th until the 27. Follow your trip information on your board 4 ever vegas. Maybe we can finally meet. I am also a Canadian - Dundas.

    I seem to recall threads about the Plaza pool being redone a year ago! Anyway, a quickie Goggle brought up "... an extensive, multi-million dollar pool renovation will begin Jan. 4, and the space should reopen sometime in the summer." Good luck!

    Thanks Turtle!

    Thanks Kev..I will read your report..but I already love the El Cortez.
    In fact I held last Spring's LasVegas4ever.com meet in their Parlour bar.

    Flamboro- I haven't decided whether or not to hold an official meet in May...but I will certainly exchange cell phone numbers with you and maybe we can connect.

    I enjoyed my stay at the Plaza over the weekend and spent some time at the D as well. some of my friends stayed at the D..

    Yolla told me the pool might be open when I return in May. I had a view of the pool area over the weekend and it wasn't too appealing (and the trash bags on the former tennis court didn't help). I'm looking forward to the changes!
