1. Flamingo is a great place to stay, not so great to play. 2. Slot machines are EVIL. I have taken a vow never to play them again(well, maybe an occasional Betty Boop, but NEVER the Monopoly train!) 3. Highlights of the trip: Craps at El Cortez and Mystere. How's that for contrast! 4. Big Elvis should change his name to HUGE Elvis. 5. Best toast is BARBARY TOAST (and the VP ain't too bad either) 6. If you take your wife, send her to the spa at Paris. She will love you for it! 7. Anytime anyone says "The card says to stay, but I have a feeling I should hit" get up immediatly! 8. Terrible's is just that. 9. If you ever see a man talking to a teddy bear at the penny slots...scram! 10. You can always sleep on the way home. Las Vegas kicks major butt! Planning our next trip for April. Man that's a long way away. In the mean time, I will live vicariously through you folks. Thanks for all your help in my getting this trip together. This board really made a difference. Nothing like advice from the experts!
