    Not trying to judge. $16.99 for a cheeseburger not too bad on the Strip.

    Holy crap that line for the reef is ridiculous. And that is a lot of kids in line.

    The first few times I was in Vegas in the mid-late 90s, seeing a kid on the strip or in a casino was very rare and there were few lines for restaurants and other things going on in the city. The only crowds were at the tables. Now when you go you see kids all over the place, and more and more younger (under 10) kids.

    I was thinking that. Holsteins is like 20 bucks or more for a burger IIRC. And I don't recall if the fries are included there or not.

    Giordonos for dinner. Note: thin crust pizza rakes 30 minutes, deep dish 45. Also thin crust is more like regular crust

    It was informative to see the many restaurant bills. I guess you are leaving today, I was curious to see the new Sadelle's that replaced Cafe Bellagio. You were in the Conservatory but it seems you did not venture in. Great report and photos, thanks.

    Josh has been sick and now I have it. Just went to bed early last night so ended up $26 for the trip.

    Check in at airport was a mess. The agent applied the upgrade Certs to joshes account instead of mine and couldn't check him in. Took over 30 minutes to get straightened out. That with the line we only have like 15 minutes in the lounge to grab something before we board. I'll post coin in when i get home .

    Hopefully if I get better will have videos up in the next week.

    @Fligster, I noticed (maybe I missed something) that you didn't take your wife and son to the off-strip BBQ places as you always do in your solo trips. Any reason for it or just want to keep them secret to your family?

    They aren't fans of BBQ and I didn't want to "force" them to go. She was willing but we went with choices where everyone could find something.

    Made it home. Weather sucks in PHL area. Lots of rain and heavy clouds but we still got in a little early.

    Traffic is terrible taking forever.
