    Hi! I live near Houston and my hubby & I are finally going to Las Vegas for the first time ever (together or separately). Booked the Bellagio today for a Lakeview Deluxe Resort room. So excited!! Hubby thinks I spent too much on the room ($219/nt + resort fee & taxes) but it's for our 20th anniversary so I want a bit of luxury and we both want a view of the strip.

    If anyone has advice I'm happy to take it. :) We'll be in Vegas in mid-June.

    Hey Lucky92,

    I use to live in Houston(Bunker Hill area) and just sold my beach house on the West End of Galveston.

    Try to post some questions on what you like and want to do so we can narrow down your choices.

    GO TEXANS!!!

    Re:

    Bubba, even though I lived in Houston and love the city and the state; I was born across the Red River and love my home state just as much. Jealousy is a peculiar thing, espically when its around the 2nd Saturday in October.

    You know the owner of the Golden Nugget(s) and a few other ventures is a Galveston/Houston guy....right.

    Think: Kemah
    Landry's
    Texans
    RR/Bently
    1/2 of Galveston.....really
    Lots of relatives in business
    His family was indirectly involved with Mickey Gilley/Gilley's in Pasadena











    Give up???

    Yes, old news :). I'm not impressed with his chain restaurants, so no burning desire to see his idea of a Vegas casino. Just my opinion :)
