Its been some time since I have spent any significant time on the strip, so when the inlaws decided to come and stay at the Mirage, we decided, what the heck lets get a room and 'visit vegas' (even though we live in Henderson, NV). We stayed for two nights, and although in the end it was quite expensive, it was a blast! I mostly played poker (1/2 NL or 3-6 Limit are your options at the mirage) and had fun, but also played some craps. ($10 limits during the day, but they go up to $15 at 7PM.. but if you are already playing they grandfather you in). Great fun at the dice tables, I play pretty conservatively but still managed a winning session ! I don't play blackjack anymore, but I did look around and was shocked that even $10 shoe games are paying 6:5. At least the tables are clearly marked! As for entertainment, we dined at Ondo (very nice!) and then went over to the Hard Rock to listen to the "Sin City Sinners", that show was off the hook rock and roll! Anyway, all and all quite pleased with our "Staycation!" !
