Hey Now! We stayed here for the first time, enjoyed it till the weekend came.. We saw some friends and I went on various chip/coupon runs in the early mornings. We played at Sam's Club, the Suncoast, and Terrible's mostly. Went to the Silverton to see the Avett Brothers and the big aquarium. As long as we stayed away from the strip , the crowds weren't too bad, there must have been a convention or two staying at the Orleans, they were booked up solid. Tons of kids!! So many places have reduced their hours. Bars, clubs, and even stores... We ate at Casa Di Amore and Cuba Cafe on E. Tropicana. Both places are great, small locals joints.. I posted a detailed blog if you'd like to see it. It's kinda long, but there are many pics on it. http://flysrb.com/vegas_2010.htm Enjoy!
