    In-n-Out is vastly overrated? Haha

    That pic of the Linq promenade is the busiest daytime pic I've seen in maybe ever? That makes me happy.

    Back now:D

    It seems my wife and I both have the head cold now - but hey, we’re still on vacation and that’s better than no cold and working.

    Enjoyed the burger. Yeah, The Linq was very busy as SEMA and Phish crowds are both here. What is most notable about In-N-Out is the value it is on Strip too. Great deal relative to a lot of other offerings. Rates with Earls as one of the best Vegas Strip deals for sure.

    I don’t know that they are necessarily The Best but have to say they are very good, and that coming from here on a fast food burger is saying something. I am partial to Culver’s in the Midwest which are exceptional for a fast food burger and these gave them a good “run”.

    I think HR is a better night activity but this worked for a group of us doing the concerts. We took bar car to enjoy time with others and bought in advance, although we let the others do the boozin’ and just took the water and mist to hydrate.

    Went back to recharge for the shows after HR and almost didnt make the show. Napped for a couple hours then took a bath with a pint of OJ. That made me feel much better, and actually enjoyed the show. Staying at MGM Grand paid off HUGE here.

    No Friday show pics as I forgot to charge the phone.....small potatoes given how things looked at 6:30PM Friday.

    Today: seemingly feeling better and off to find brunch. Thinking Peppermill??

    Regardless of opinions on the relative merits of the Halloween gag the band has been VERY MUCH. on point and very assertive/authoritative in these performances. When Phish steps on the gas they outrun ANYTHING that SEMA has here....

    7F9B2E77-41C9-4B07-98CB-439F0555AA50.jpeg It’s an hour twenty quoted to seating, but to Uber to another locale doesn’t seem worth it, especially only to come back later. Lots of Phish fans here so killing time checking it out isn’t a problem:

    Lol

    I just haven't had good luck eating there. But at least it's a reasonably affordable option. I definitely like that on the Strip.

    Double double animal style (sub mustard and ketchup if you dont like the sauce) with fries cooked for 4.5 minutes (instead of the usual 5 minutes). You will be happy!
