    I try to procure some in-room entertainment at least once during every trip!

    Also like to visit Fashion Show Mall and eat at Taco Maker in the Food Court on the top level. It has a great view of the Wynn and large windows!

    We always:
    - head to In-N-Out Burger first chance we get
    - pick a pearl (or two or three) at one of the many Pearl Factory locations (yeah, I know, but I can't help it!)
    - recently we have started going to StripSteak at Mandalay Bay once a trip :drooling:

    A new show seems to be my thing lately. I probably saw 10+ last year. So many good deals now, I feel like I can see more shows.

    Honestly for me I ALWAYS go to Mandalay Bay. I haven't stayed in a while but I always play there and eat at Border Grill.

    I like to get a gambling chip from every casino. These are not for
    spending so I usually get a $1.00 chip but depending on the design
    I will get a $5.00.

    When in Vegas last week I figured out that I do have one thing I always do in Vegas. Buy a new hat.

    Last week I bought a nice new Pork Pie hat at Goorin Bros at the Linq, keeping my hat buying streak intact.

    I found Goorin Bros last trip. Love that little store! I was looking for a hatbox for my newest fedora and they had one and it only cost $10.

    Now, on topic:

    1. Eat too much, usually in the form of buffets I love 'em, the wife not so much but she puts up with them for me.
    2. Exercise too little (usually not at all unless you count walking around a casino)
    3. Avoid In-N-Out like the plague. There is one less than a mile from my house so it's not a big deal to me
    4. Hit downtown, usually multiple times
    5. While downtown, go to Vato Cigars in Binions for their great hand rolled cigars
    6. Also while at Binions, have a burger at the cafe
    7. Smoke cigars every day I'm in town while playing VP at a bar somewhere, enjoying a cold non-alcoholic beer

    6) Looking at the eye candy
    7) Swap jokes with the pit crew, usually learning a new one or two every trip.
