Arrived at Stardust from PHL via USAIR. Crazy night in LV as fight and biker convention going full speed. Great rate from Stardust Casino Marketing looked even better after talking to some people. Some people paid in excess of $300. 00 on the 13th. We've been going to LV since the 70's. Wife plays mostly slots while I favor horses and some slots and craps. Stardust was ok for the price, it is clean and fullfilled our needs. Slots seemed pretty tight. Circus slots much better. Did hit two hand pays downtown, one at Golden Gate and one at Binions. Pretty well blasted with Corona's when hit so maybe there's a relationship. Special note for the gourmet diner, Binion's snackbar chile is still awesome. A great place to eat. My wife even liked the snackbar. It just has an aura of greatness about it. Sam's Town still pretty lively and buffett is decent. Bad slot vibes in the following; Flamingo, (I don't think you could pull a jackpot out of their machines with a tractor), Caesar's all glitz, not my kind of place, Aladin has decent video poker , two wild royals in fifteen minutes.While at SAM's played two games of KENO. Hit a four spot consisting of wife's and daughter's birthdays, 480.00 for 3.00, which was just dumb luck. Keno odds are ridiculous. Ponies were not running for me so the trip ended on a negative. But it's Vegas. Circus breakfast buffet has improved. It's basic but clean. Alladin buffet is one of the best dinner buffetts but pricey, 45.02 for two. Stardust buffett is average. Took a side trip to Laughlin on the bus, it's ok but nothing special. Vegas continues to become more corporate. I can't believe we've been going almost 30 years. Started in our early twenties. Thanks to Scott R for the recycled bus passes. Time to start planning next year.
