    I don’t have anything witty, intelligent or constructive to add here. Just an introduction.

    I discovered this board on accident and within minutes of reading I thought, “where have you been all my life?” The truth is, I love almost everything about Vegas...minus the gross sewer smells that waft up in the sidewalks, like most cities of any decent size. I try to make a trip at least twice per year; I would go more often if Hubs was up for it more. I’m lucky to get him there every couple of years.

    In the meantime, I travel to my happy place with my sister as often as we can coordinate calendars and bank accounts with the slight disapproval of our husbands. That, I’m afraid is our own fault. In the past, Sis and I have slipped out to the local casino a few too many times ending up in intoxicated shit shows with a few too many trips to the ATM (needing to get a ride home with the local cab driver who is perpetually stoned - but I digress...and will save those stories for another time). Our men would prefer that we act like the sweet, ladylike women they thought they’d married. And while they know we deserve to get out and about for “girl time” they’d prefer we do it at a quilting conference or a book club. Since neither of us can thread a needle and like to read trash, Vegas is the next best thing. Anyway, they’ve put up with us for over 30 years, so they’ve learned to be tolerant.

    I’m from a small town on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Kids are grown, but I started early so I’m a fairly young grandma - Sis is a very young and super hot grandma...I got the brains. Anyway, Hubs retired early so I’m basically on the “work til I die plan” or perhaps slightly earlier if I can stay away from local gaming establishments! So far, so good...I’ve stayed away for months!

    Our next trip to paradise is July 9-13 at the Park MGM. Since we’ve been on our best behavior for the past few months, our husband’s bum holes don’t even seem to pucker when we talk about our upcoming trip. We usually go with the flow while there, but in an attempt to avoid all out degeneracy we are planning a few shows and outings this time. When the time comes, we will attempt a trip report. Though I doubt we will have anything witty, intelligent or constructive to add.

    Thanks for reading! Cheers.

    Thank you both! Sonya - Mason County girl here, but spend plenty of time on the Kitsap Pen catching ferries or water taxis. I’m really enjoying reading all the information here! Wish I would have found this years ago!

    Welcome to VMB. Wife and I play at Little Creek. It is further than Lucky Eagle for us but we prefer it there, we love the seafood bar.

    Greetings from Long Beach, WA. Like NCISfan said, I am a lover of Little Creek's Squaxin Island seafood bar. A buddy and I hit Little Creed a few times a year for poker tournaments and whatnot. Perhaps a bit too much whatnot. I was going to go by myself a few weekends ago but they raised their rates and I gave it a pass.

    Anyway, a big welcome to you!
