    Usually only do 3 nights on the strip (PH) but added a 4th night and one of those 4 nights will be our first stay downtown @ GN.

    Will be downtown during the day and night the Saturday of Aug 25th. Downtown seems to be a good place for a Craps get together during the day. (night time is going to be busy for us) Should be able to find $5 tables and minimal crowds during the day. Definitely a low roller here (unless the table gets hot) and probably a $200 buy-in at the $5 table.

    From my limited trips downtown, usually The Downtown Grand is empty late morning/early afternoon.
    I would prefer MSS but could be crowded.
    I don't like the dice at the Plaza. Those double circle dice are just weird. :p
    Not sure its me but El Cortez seems to have a long table. :rolleyes:
    GG is always packed. Rarely open spots and the The D is just too damn loud.

    Granted some places do only open up 1/2 the table which is fine if only 2-3 want to play.

    I am open to suggestions and will monitor the thread in case anyone wants to take the reins on this one.
    I call stick left. ;)

    I'll be in that Sunday the 26th, still on the fence where I am staying Sunday night, however will be on the strip for the next 2 nights at the Flamingo. Might be the D depending on offers, or the Suncoast since I'll already have offers for there as well.

    My husband and I will be there on August 20th thru the 24th to celebrate my birthday and also celebrating a few months early our 40th wedding anniversary. I made reservations at Excalibur and Harrah's. Leaning more towards Excalibur. Already have enough MyVegas rewards to get 2 nights comped. Can't wait. This is my third trip, but first for husband.
