I would like to say hello to the group. I am a long time lurker reading all the fun tips/tricks/trip reports from the members here. i have had two trips to Vegas for short work related classes/training in the last 5 years. There were solo trips and while I had fun, I knew I wasn't getting the full experience. My fiance and I are headed to Vegas next weekend (29June-5July) for what we hope to be a great time. We are getting married while we are out there and are looking forward to seeing a bunch of stuff. We are staying at the Jockey club, and while we both understand the pluses and minuses of that, the kitchenette and larger room size outweighs the potential minuses. We will have a rental car so we will be able to get off the strip and see some of the outlying attractions. I will try to do a trip report when we get back for anyone that is interested. I am primarily a blackjack player at the 20-25 dollar level, so hopefully i will be able to find OK odds. I am interested in seeing the difference in dynamics between downtown and the strip.
