    Love the detail, love the food ratings and places you find, just so much fun following y’all around! The brioche french toast with strawberry preserves and the strawberry cream puff look so tempting!


    Thanks for taking us along again!

    Thanks for the compliments. I play only about 3-4 hours per day at the quarter level on FPDW that theoretically returns 100.7% so GVR is not knocking on my door trying to give me free rooms for 2 weeks. Unfortunately my days of FPDW are over because Stations removed those schedules from each of their casinos earlier this week.

    None of LVA's coupons are being accepted in the Front Yard per the bartender and yes it has its own bar. The coupons are cheerfully accepted at both the main bar and karaoke lounge.

    Great report, as always, Westie. How long in advance do you plan your daily activities, or do you just wing it when you get there?
    We're headed to LV the end of the month for 2 weeks, and I already had about 20 places I wanted to eat, and now after reading your report I've got about half a dozen more! Thanks again for keeping us entertained and up to date on the food choices in LV>

    @roycpa Thanks for reading the TR. Mine is a continuous process so I frequently begin working on the next trip before I even start the upcoming one. I maintain a long list of restaurants both new and previously enjoyed that I begin slotting into our upcoming schedule well advance of our trip. For example, I have the following listed for dinner during our Spring vacation though my list will change several times before we depart and often as circumstances dictate during the trip.
    1. Amena
    2. EDO
    3. Garlic Yuzu
    4. Hatsumi
    5. Lamaii
    6. Locale Italian Kitchen
    7. 7th & Carson
    8. Shish Kabob House
    9. Silverado Steakhouse
    10. Sisters Oriental Market

    Thanks for the great report! It takes me sooooooo long to read your reports.....which is a total compliment! Every time you mention a restaurant, I have to google it so I can check it out and possibly add it to my "list" for future visits. Thanks for all the detail!

    O.K. so how do you and the Mrs. stay so thin? :poke:
    Have you decided on a new strategy for GVR? Do they still have loose deuces at full pay?
    Thanks again for all the great food pics.

    When I found out there is a @westie trip report I told myself "save it for tonight". After all the chores are done for the day, dinner served and the dishes washed and put away, I can finally take a deep breath, relax, and take in a westie trip report!

    And it never disappoints. Thank you for another wonderful report on your adventures in Vegas! I always learn something from your reports, especially the write-ups on all of the interesting places you and your wife visit to eat.

    Congratulations on your Royal and all your premium hands that ultimately resulted in keeping your bankroll intact. And even though you squeezed out a small profit, a win is a win! You will exact your sweet revenge on your next trip for sure!

    Thanks again for an outstanding trip report!

    @Jimbucc - thin we are not, but we did not gain any weight on this trip. My strategy for GVR is to put it
    the rear view mirror, blow off my remaining Station points and begin playing NSUDs at the South Point.
    Thanks for reading my TR.

    I was just wondering the other day that we haven't seen a Westie trip report in a while. And now here it is. Fantastic report and pictures as usual. Always a top notch and a 5 clap worthy report!!:clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

    Great report, especially enjoyed your reporting of the Southpoint interest points as well as the very informative restaurant reports as I will be there in a month. You’re an excellent writer.
