    Hey guys!

    I've been visiting this site for over a year now and have really enjoyed it. My wife and I love getting to visit Vegas and have been able to make three trips. We've stayed at Aria, Paris, Trump, TI and Luxor. We've always gone in the off season on either Christmas or Thanksgiving. We don't really drink or play much...we love shows and the food. When we were first married we lived vicariously through the Food Network and Travel Channel and said one day...when we had enough money...we would try some of these celebrity restaurants. So we have seen a lot of shows and eaten at a lot of restaurants. It is nice going to a place where we can just chill out and move at our own pace.

    ANYWAY...I need some advice from you guys. Any thoughts or ideas or tips would be appreciated.

    My wife and I went to Vegas around Thanksgiving...but I realized that I am turning 30 in February! I know...it snuck up on me too...I told my wife I wanted to have a good story for turning 30. (our motto in life is stories, not stuff) Again...I am not a partyer...and it could affect my job if I was really stupid. Any ideas on how to celebrate? Restaurants? Shows? Which hotel would be good to stay for about 3 days (Wednesday to Saturday) and any tips on getting a good deal? I don't think we will ever get the offers and coupons some of you guys get because we will never play to any significant level. (I will lose about $100 a trip).

    What casino chain are you established with?? CET or Mlife? Check online to see if you have any offers to help you decide where to stay. (even very low rollers get offers sometimes.....if you used a players card) There are just so many great choices....sometimes it comes down to a discount ..... You could also hit a very nice restaurant with a Restaurant.com certificate and save big. Tix4tonite has some great show and dinner discounts. Groupons could also get you a deal. Good luck!!

    No...never stayed downtown but we did visit and really enjoyed the Mob Museum and Pizza Rock. I played my first table game ever while strolling around and visiting the Golden Nugget. I really appreciate the responses!

    Sybgal...I guess I am established with Mlife as I have redeem a few MyVegas rewards (Luxor).

    Check to see if the restaurants you dine at or stores that you shop at give you points on your player's card. The restaurants and shops have to be owned by the property, but if they do take player's cards, it shows them how much you spend there. Sometimes, the hotels/casinos offer free rooms to low-rollers just to entice them to come.
