    My Trip Report

    So, here goes another live trip report, for Labor Day (almost a yearly thing, it seems)
    Here's what we've got so far:
    Car rental from Avis (we're driving down at 3pm; I took today off, Kris is taking off early)
    3 Nights at Palace Station (with Double Points on one day; probably use it tomorrow)
    Try to hit as many burger places as we can (StripBurgers, Wahlburgers, etc)
    Dinner at Charcoal Room ($30 MyVegas dining credit)
    I think we're going to drive home on 95 North through Mono Lake and Yosemite; just for something different.
    Also planning on putting in $10k coin-in on the Double Point day (I'd LIKE to put in $20k, but we'll see)
    The bankroll is $1800 for gambling for this attempt.
    As usual we'll have lots of pictures and live updates.
    If anyone is around, we'd be up for a get-together (I know we're going to meet up with Ty)

    Saturday:
    Breakfast at Palace Station Coffee Shop
    Play coin-in at Palace Station $1 8/5 BonusPoker
    Shuttle over to Fashion Show Mall
    Lunch at StripBurger
    Check out WynnCore & VennAzzo
    Have a drink at Margaritaville
    Free CET Diamond Show (Leaning towards Paul [email protected]? I heard Mac [email protected] was good)
    Dinner at Charcoal Room

    Sunday:
    Breakfast at ???
    Check out some off-strip places (Texas Station, Suncoast, ...)
    Lunch at Rolling Smoke BBQ
    Ride Circus Circus RollerCoaster
    Hit up Frankie's Tiki Room
    Do other stuff
    Dinner at ???

    Monday:
    Lunch at I <3 Burgers

    Tim,
    I think you'll enjoy The Charcoal Room. I thought it compared well with Gallegher's and much better than Smith & Wollensky's for service. Please post your review of your experience there.

    If you're staying at Palace Station, you're missing out on the highlight of the place... Oyster Bar!
