Another Vegas trip just concluded. This one featured no hijinks, little drinking, no buffoonery... aw man, what's the point in even writing it if no one's going to read it? LOL Highlights to be covered after I get out from under the avalanche of papers on my desk: 3 nights at the Hard Rock (first stay there) Some new restaurants tried, and only one repeat from previous (and that was several years previous) I can tell you right now the gambling highlight was sitting down to a $5 double-deck blackjack game at South Point. The only other person on the table begged me not to wait til the end of the shoe to play since he was down to the felt. I had $50 to play when I sat down, and I walked with $225. The guy who had about $40 when I sat down? He was betting substantially more ($50-100 vs my $5 or $10) but when I left, he had colored up to $800 and was still going strong!
