So trip #7 is less than 50 days away, and I'm fired up! We've traditionally stayed "mid" strip (Caesars, Flamingo, PH, Cosmo) but for whatever reason this year my cohorts decided on MGM, and the more I think about it, the more I like the decision. We've always gone mid-strip thinking it was better in terms of options, but the more I analyzed our behavior I realized that we never went too far from our home base during the average daily jaunt (trips off-strip, downtown, etc. notwithstanding). As such we almost never hit NYNY, Luxor, Tropicana, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, etc. In fact, almost everyone in our crew has been to the above properties either zero or one times, making this almost a "new" trip in terms of where we'll be spending most of our time and money. Add to that the fact that according to the last BJ Report on WizardOfOdds.com, the MGM properties that are concentrated in that area offer better odds and it sounds like M-Life is better than Total Rewards, so we're all quite thrilled about the switch from being CET regulars. We've been scouting the area for fun things (AKA my recent thread for a southern strip O'Sheas equivalent) but if anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear them. Also, may do our first legit trip report with pics, assuming we're sober enough to remember what happened and also take photos.
