I am not going to post a long message on here about my trip just the basics. first things first, the first couple of days were warm but bearable, the last 3 days were the best i have ever spent in vegas. 90 degrees but with a nice steady breeze. i couldnt have asked for nicer weather. the gaming downtown was great. i am not a big slots player but i played a few. i used to think fitzgeralds and cortez had the loosest machines, fitz was a huge letdown, but the cortez was great. I won some money playing b/j at the fremont,LVC and golden gate, but had my ass handed to me at fitzgeralds. The brewpup in the 4 queens kept me occupied when i needed a break from the tables. if you dont know what to order when you go in let me suggest a cold 22 ounce "all nighter" hands down the best micro brew i have ever had. as usual MSS breakfast buffet didnt disapoint. if you havent tried it, it is hands down the best breakfast in downtown and a bargain at 6.99 a person i believe. atta boy to quadzilla for the suggestion. dinner at the MGM was great especially for crab lovers. it is still doesnt compare to the alladin, but i wanted to try something new and i did. i actually took the deuce to the strip 2 days. anyone needing info on it please let me know. had a great time "scouting" for my fall trip, and i think barbary coast is now a lock for me. as for my room. i have never stayed at the LVC but i gamble there a lot so i decided to give the north tower room a shot. regardless of the negative post, i thought the room was spectacular for the price. it was big, with a large window overlooking the mountains and the cali club. looking down i had a nice veiw of the pool (only draw back to the slightly cooler temps no women in the pool) and the bed was comfortable. the staff was very friendly and maybe its just me but the clientel seemed friendly too. only thing i hated was the drinks. weak weak weak. overall my trip was great but just way too short. my fall trip will be 7-10 days and i plan on splitting it up with the strip for 4 or 5 days and downtown for the rest. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to leave them here, message me, or email me and i will certainly help you out however i can.
