Hello all. I'm from Illinois and am new to the VMB. Previously I had been a member of the Las Vegas Advisor but dropped that because the members rewards just didn't justify the cost for me. First trip to Vegas was in 2003 to get married. My love affair with her ended but not the one with Vegas. Stayed at the Stratosphere that first trip and a few subsequent trips then spent several years staying at the Plaza. In 2010, while playing BJ at the LVC, I got a tap on the shoulder and was informed I was welcome to play anything but BJ. That ended my stays at the Plaza since I couldn't play there either. Since then I've been staying and playing BJ at the GN.
