    Nice report! And it sounds like the full pay STP is still at the DTG Furnace Bar. I hope to do a lot better than you did!

    Thanks for posting the trip report; loved following along. Loved all the food and vp porn. Really loved the food porn, got me hungry every time I saw the pics and I hope I can score a royal on my next trip.

    Enjoyed this a bunch @Grant1982, glad to see you at least had some fish veggies at Sterling. You covered a lot of territory with some great pics, and held your own on the gambol. Thanks for taking us along.

    Thanks for sharing your adventure! Loved all the scratch cards too. MSS is my favorite place to play VP, however last trip I spent more time in the cigar bar @ 4queens. I think DTG furnace bar is on my to do list too.

    The cigar bar is the one place in 4Q I have not played. Can you order food and eat while you play VP there? Are their bartenders as good as the ones downstairs?

    Yes you can eat while you play VP right at the bar and the food is actually really good. Bar tenders were good and attentive as well.

    I must admit, I got pretty hungry scrolling through your food porn! Most of my Vegas trips the last few years haven't included the weekends, so I haven't had the opportunity to go to the Sterling Buffet. It really looked as good as I remember it. I do love the Wynn buffet almost as much even on a weekday though. Still, there's no BBQ like we get here at home though, right? Great TR!

    You got that absolutely 1000% right! I cant for the life of me figure out why the rest of the nation finds it so difficult to make good pork ribs! I'm no Bobby Flay by any means but even my ribs beat 99% of restaurant ribs I find outside of Memphis, which is crazy because they are so easy to make.

    Thanks for the fine read. How much is it for the Sterling brunch buffet?

    I believe its $115 per person. I just threw $150 at my buddy and had him take care of the tab and tip but that may not have been enough. We pay for each other all the time.

    Loved everything about this report, especially all the food and outdoor trip photos. Sterling looks good, but I couldn't eat enough to make it worth my $$. Looked like a fun trip!
