    Great report. I really enjoyed the read. Very nice of your GF to puppy watch. We have 3 Weimaraner's and usually have to hire a dog sitter that comes and stays at the house. Glad to you had a good time. We will be there the end of this month for Labor Day weekend.

    Cool Report !

    Sounds Like good times, really liked the breakdown of each day and the video and pics.:thumbsup:

    I'll be staying at the Flamingo soon and it will be my first time staying there. I have a Go Deluxe room so probably wont have no view, your view looked awesome.

    If you have time can you PM me a linq to do the A/C as I need a cool room to sleep.

    Thanks for the report.

    Excellent trip report! I really enjoy Gallagher's as well - great food and not quite as pricey as some of the top joints in town. Nice hit on the slots too.

    Overriding the AC preset by googling the user manual...BRILLIANT! Definitely the first time I've seen that tip mentioned.

    Awesome report, I kept reading to hear your review of the stage door, as that is on my list. I too am staying at the flamingo in a few days and appreciate the AC tip. :beer:

    Just read your report, sounds like you had a great time.......we are staying at the flamingo as well, second time!
    Only 36 days left and your report made me even more excited!

    Question for you:
    How was the blue man group? we are going to see them when we go and we booked seats in the poncho section!
