    My Trip Report

    It's About Time!

    Off to Vegas Sunday morning! 6:35am Flight out of Houston Hobby to San Antonio-8:50am Flight to Vegas-9:30am Vegas arrival. Staying @ the Orleans- $40 a night thru Thursday.
    I have not planned much, just want to take it easy. What I do have planned:

    1. Comedy Stop @ the Trop
    2. Bet on the Ponies
    3. George Wallace
    4. Mac King
    5. Bet on the Ponies
    6. Watch/Bet Baseball & Ponies @ CP Sports/Race Book
    7. Find some .25/1.00 Elvis Slots (Need some help here Mikey et al)
    8. Check out Spider Man 2 (Distraction from the casinos)
    9. Bet on the Ponies
    10. Poker lessons at Monte Carlo

    ??? Anyone know where I can get some fried catfish and/or fried shrimp on the strip? Buffets or restaurants....I know about Hoya's Boardwalk haunt for popcorn shrimp. ;) and Big Al's @ The Orleans.

    No downtown forays this trip. I will stay and play downtown on the next trip.
    The point is to get away from people who know me and rowdy kids/teenagers! I teach school-need a break! [​IMG]

    Ideas/input welcome and appreciated!

    Hey Moe--

    Unfortunately, there are NO Elvis machines at the Orleans. Or at least there weren't in March. Probably gonna have to catch the shuttle over to the BC and lurk around Mid-Strip to find The King.

    For the seafood, I recommend the "Fulton Fish Market" at NYNY. Very good, and fairly priced.

    Thank you gentlemen(is that the correct word for you two?)! Mikey, I was just wondering if you had a preferred place on the strip to play the Elvis Slots.
    Thanks Baz!-I meet your weight requirement for food reviews, so I look forwrd to reviewing the places I eat.

    I know you're gone now, but I'll second the NYNY Fulton St. fish market recommendation--my husband really likes their fish & chips (usually fresh fried so crisp, not too greasy or mushy) and I enjoy the clam chowder in a bread bowl. Not too sure about fried shrimp though (other than those yummy popcorn shrimp ;) at Boardwalk)
