    My Trip Report

    ...Downtown rules!

    ...So does Craps. Finally played with some understanding and now I'm addicted.

    ...Met the World Famous Hurricane Mikey and Doug (I don't think I'm allowed to call him Dougie after meeting him once, although he did call my wife hot at the SLC airport)

    ...played at Mikey's table at the Golden Gate and won thanks to a "virgin" shooter. Good Times.

    ...El Cortez is a cool casino. But their craps tables are very bouncy.

    ...Jello Wrestling didn't happen at Deja Vu, but bed dances are VERY cool. [​IMG]

    ...playing craps at 4 am after the strip club is awesome. Ended up $196.

    ...Fake Tom Jones Downtown has a great show. He looks and sounds like him so much that he fooled my wife and I. He pulled her up on stage (which she loved).

    ...my wife has learned that $10 roulette doesn't play well with her strategy of bet 4 win 8. Bet 10 win 8 only lasts for so long.

    ...walking the entire strip is ok. But your feet will hurt a lot the next day.

    ...chili cheese dogs at 12:30 at night are not a good idea no matter how they sound at the time.

    I'm working on the trip report. It was the best time my wife and I had in Vegas.

    Sounds like you had a good time. The roulette deal made me laugh.

    sarmcl, The Fake Tom Jones was on the stage between the Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. There was also a fake Elvis and Neil Diamond. We really thought it was the Real Tom Jones until he gave my wife a DVD after he pulled her up on stage.
