    I have seen this mentioned on here before and I keep saying I will try it. So while I'm here going to have a go at it. My plan is to start at Cromwell and go north on the east of the strip. Then come back down the west side to Mandalay Bay. Then back north on the east side with a finish in Ballys.

    It will he small beer or bottle of beer in each casino. Also to add a little more to it I'm going to start with $200 and will play VP at each casino bar.

    Not sure what day yet and how this is going to pan out but will be fun doing it.

    That’s what I used to do in the afternoon to kill time back when I was a Strip dweller. It wasn’t a goal, but I believe that if you walk 30-45 minutes between comped beers you are going to get leg cramps before you get drunk.

    Live TR please!

    I think it's around 20 casinos if you go up to Wynncore. Plus a couple more if you add in the non casino properties such as Vdara, Mandarin, etc.

    I will try to do updates where Wi-Fi permits, I know about the Wynn not comping drinks. I have done the walk before but not drinking at every one. It will be fun just to see how it goes.

    I
    The rule is that it has to be a casino bar, I'm including O'Sheas as it is a casino in a casino.

    Should be funny to see how my driving is on the home straight!

    I've never been able to fully complete this mission.
    I have walked from Mandalay Bay to Downtown and back again but I didn't hit every single casino on the way.
    If I had turned around at Strat instead of going downtown I probably could have done this.

    Start a GoFundMe....I'll bet people will donate!

    So I've started on this and currently in Venitian. Not bothering with the VP as it's a lot of messing for 1 drink, especially with the light system now.

    Also splitting it into to sessions, daytime centre to north strip. Evening will be centre to South strip. Gives me a chance to have a small break, freshen up and get changed.

    MB -> Strat -> MB is, what, 8.5 miles? Add in some walking to/from the properties and you're at 10-11?

    That's doable in a day. The larger question is if you do that and have drink 20 drinks. I don't think you'd get overtly drunk, but just fatigued from the output and drinking.

    Update and I'm now at Mirage and plan to finish this part of the challenge at Bellagio. Then I will head back to Tuscany yo change and freshen up.

    I could do the second part all on foot it but I may use Lyft to take me to Mandalay Bay to work my way back to centre strip.
