Background I was just in Vegas last month and have next trip planned for the first weekend in May with my old college buddy. This trip happened by complete accident. I had planned on going to Phoenix for the weekend to collect some casino chips to add to my collection and relax. Getting caught in rush hour Boca/Ft Lauderdale traffic, I missed my flight out Friday night of FLL.. first time I've ever missed a flight. I pulled over at the FLL exit as my flight to PHX departed and pondered, do I just go back home and do nothing this weekend? Wait, Spirit always has an 8:30pm flight to LAS! I hopped onto the Southwest app and and changed my flight from PHX>FLL Monday to LAS>FLL for free. Hopped on TR website and only free nights I had were at the Linq, so I grabbed a reservation, then got one of 2 seats left on the Spirit flight. Parked at the airport and couldn't believe by random bad luck that scrapped my original plans I'd be heading back to my favorite city. Friday 2/20 - Got in easy, no line at Linq checkin. - I usually stay at Cosmo, PHo, Flamingo or Ballys. I was very impressed with the Linq. The rooms were updated and clean, love the dispensers in the shower. Downside = no provided toiletries like lotion. The A/C was probably the best I've had in Vegas, the room would get ice cold if I wanted it to. Loved that. - I spent a lot of time this trip at both the Catalyst bar by the sportsbook at the Linq and the TAG bar. Both are great (or were, I'll get to that). The bartenders are great, the vibe great, all CET bars seem to now have multiple All Star machines among their other machines. - Wandered the neighboring properties losing money at VP and craps. Love how fairly narrow the Linq is. Out one side is Harrah's, out the other is Flamingo/Margaritaville. Right outside the door leading to Margaritaville is the crosswalk over to the Forum entrance of Caesers to get to their sportsbook bar (my favorite, although I'll post my gripes later). - All Star machine location bottom right with 8/5 JOB double STP @ Flamingo. - 2 pics for Buckeyestud (aka C) who I wil be meeting in Vegas in May. His favorite craps table and a blurb I saw on ESPN while playing at Flamingo about one of the days we'll be there.
