So we used to stay center strip (Flamingo, Caesars, etc.) on every trip. One of our favorite things to do was to go to O'Sheas every morning around 8 and warm up with a bunch of booze and some low limit stuff. Now they are gone and we're staying at MGM. Is there a place near MGM that has a similar "dive" vibe and also has some table games or at least VP that is within walking distance?
