Since everyone appears to be headed to Las Vegas the first week/weekend of July: -Where are you staying (aside from the 20+ over at Flamingo)? -Where's your favorite place to gamble? -What off-the-Strip joint do you like to hit up on your trip(s), if any? For the past five-six years I take three treks annually out to the little oasis and it's always been from a SAT-TUE. I'm actually doing a late FRI arrival this time and staying at Vdara, which has been my preferred place to stay over the past three years. I have gone to Vegas for the last fourteen Super Bowls and this past FEB was indeed a sad stay for me as my favorite place to gamble basically shut down on the 5th (Barbary Coast/Bill's). I'm not sure what I'm going to do now because I seemed to always find myself in there for hours on end. I liked the older-dive casinos that were on the strip (O'Shea's, Casino Royale, B-Coast). Maybe I'll have to go back to my old 1990's stomping grounds: Los Gold Coast (the Taj Mahal of gaming establishments). Double Down Saloon isn't off the strip too far, but it qualifies as a spot I like to hit up a time or two when I'm out there. Curious where the regular visitors like to go.
