    Good Evening all. Me and wife are returning to Las Vegas Nov 19-22. We used to go twice a year until 2016 when we found out about having our 3rd child. We still received an MLife offer to 4 comp nights and some resort credit. I will take it since we haven’t been in four years. We are staying at NYNY since it has always been our home base. I am craps and slot player and wife is slot player with a little low roll craps. Our BR will probably be about 6k. With the higher table limits now I am looking for other options??
    Maybe Orleans or go check out other non strip properties? Also need a couple of nice diner ideas? Can’t wait to get back to Las Vegas. Thank you for your ideas

    If you have a car, I would suggest the new player bonus at Jerry's Nugget. Some things to mention, though

    1)Only one person should sign up at a time, but both players can play off of the same card (the new member bonus is only good for 24 hours, which is why you should save one person for next trip)
    2)Slots only for the new member bonus
    3)At 1000 points, you should have enough for the $100 free play, and prime rib dinner for two at the coffee shop

    Happy Birthday to me!!! Food folks, and fun!!

    $1 a point.

    Another suggestion. If you fly and fly SWA, the D (downtown) has a promotion that gets you $50 in match play chips. Also, if you mention Brian Christopher/Richard Wilk, you would get an additional $25 match play chip.

    We are flying SWA and will definitely take advantage of the match plays and Will match play.

    Do you know if they will restock silver strikes at 4 queens in October ?

    The Silver Strike (with the exception of the Yellow Cap machine at front of the casino) machines are always kept full of clad strikes. For me, it's a matter of whether or not they have red/blue cap strikes in them. AFAIK, the director of slots has a moratorium on putting reds/blues in the machines.

    I would like to add a $40 strike or red or blues to the collection. I personally have no interest in clad strikes. I have 100 or so old .999 strikes and one $300 Strike from the Venetian

    Silver is on the rise, trading at 26.73 an ozt. today, that would make an older .999 Silver Strike about $16.00 melt value.

    The $40 strike machine (yellow cap) was OOO when I was at QQQQ last month. OOO typically means no Yellow caps available.

    I rebooked my hotel to Mirage Suite with 375FP and 75RC. I have made reservations for Sinatra on Saturday night but looking for a restaurant idea for Friday night?

    May go off strip and downtown on Friday? I have to check out Circa.
