    Hey everyone!

    Headed back to Vegas in July, it will have been exactly a year since my last trip to sin city! It was also my first solo trip and because I loved it so much, I'm doing it solo again! Last year I made it a point to take one full day and just explore the strip at a leisurely pace and just enjoy every second I could. Play at different casinos, grab a snack, have a drink, enjoy Big Elvis, etc! However, my "entire strip walk" turned into about half the strip and wasn't as eventful as I imagined!lol So I thought I would reach out to all of you again and see what your must stops/slots would be if you had one full day to walk the strip!? Last year I got as far as Paris/Cosmo and turned around (my goal was NYNY.) So I would definitely like to be sold on reasons to venture further down past those places! I'm looking for the best Ultimate Poker experiences, love a good penny slot, maybe a fun drink to try, and also just Vegas nostalgia!

    Just some information for you....This will be my 8th time in Vegas, so I know my way around and have seen most of the major attractions and reosrts. I'm staying at the Wynn, I love to walk, distance is not a problem. I definitely will get a Frozen Baily's from O'Sheas!:)

    Thank you again for being such an awesome community, this past year has been a blast on here getting to know all of you!

    Just have fun and let old mr booze guide you.

    What i do is have a loose plan for the day. Lets say I am staying at MGM and want to go to Slots A Fun. Could hop on a bus or cab and go straight there but thats not the point. The fun is in getting there.

    So i will drink a bunch in the room and head out, making sure to drink many more beers along the way.

    Trust me on this. I was in the Navy for 20 years and have been all around the world, on a boat, and seen all sorts of fun stuff.

    The best times hands down are the ones that just spring out of nowhere. Spontaneity I guess you call it.

    Over planning and paying for forced fun never amounts to anything other than meh, it was ok.

    Right on the Strip at Paris outside is Beer Park. It's on the second level, have a Kona Longboard draft and watch the fountain show.

    Stop in Planet Hollywood and play Outback Jack(see avatar) before it's gone, it's right in front of PF Chang's. It's an adventure.

    Love Strip crawls, good luck.

    I can’t get away from the Golden Ale and Island Lager. I just discovered this Brand recently, what else have I been missing in life?

    Delicious.
