    Well, I was going to extend my trip an extra day and grab a pool cabana, but all the first class seats are sold out for the reasonable ones that next day, so I'll probably have to leave earlier than I want to and maybe reserve a cabana for July 4th week.

    My next trip will be at Wynn, so hopefully I’ll be able to check out Resorts World. I’d like to say that I’m going to see Circa and Virgin, but after a 16 month absence from Vegas, I’m sure I will be in full on degenerate mode for the better part of the trip and probably won’t make too much time for sight seeing.

    My next trip I will be doing my first Vegas slot tournament.

    I also want to go to several casinos on and off strip that I have not been to before. M Resort, GVR

    Winning my first hand pay would be great.

    Having breakfast somewhere other than the hotel I am staying in. Breakfast is the one meal of the day I cannot skip, and in Vegas I have always just gone to the buffet wherever I’m staying. But even if buffets reopen by the time I return, I’m going to venture out and try some place new, thanks to all the options I have read about here on VMB...for example, the place with the bottomless Mimosas is calling to me....:wave:

    Go to the pool. Been to Vegas probably 50 times, and never gone to the pool!

    Indeed. June may not be the optimal time for this kind of thing, but that’s going to be one helluva good time....

    I've seen these at most hotel gift shops, and at the ABC type of store, in the section with souvenir playing cards. They usually have used casino cards and dice. I've picked some up to bring home for my kids, along with the usual chocolate poker chips and gummy dice.:p

    1) Midi-Baccarat.

    2) Play in a high-limit room.

    And, depending on how froggy I'm feeling:

    3) $200 a hand at Pai Gow.

    High Roller for sure. My boyfriend is scared of heights so I never get to check it out, maybe on this upcoming friends trip though...

    Actually doing some hiking at Valley of Fire. I've been twice now, in absolutely perfect weather but between our fairly late arrival the first time I went and my friends being completely unprepared to do any exploring (my friends daughter was in flip flops :rolleyes:) the second time, we didn't really get to get out there, just drove around and walked around the vicinity of the parking areas. My next trip is in June and I'm certain the heat will scare me away :cry: fingers crossed for more mild than normal weather!

    Area 15 is #1 on my list though, I know it's new to mostly everyone but I can't wait to check it out :D

    Other than hotel and flight - trying no reservations anywhere for my trip this week. In the recent past, the looming hard stops in order to go to dinner/shows/whatever have put a mental damper on my gambling and general relaxation and wandering. Not a huge deal if I win up eating Pizza Rock for 10 straight meals if it means I can camp out on a hot machine for 4 hours.

    Here are a few in order of likelihood
    1. Check out the Circa
    2. Breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi hopefully strip view table
    3. Ride the High Roller
    4. Cruise Boulder Highway stopping at the Longhorn Casino (maybe for their Porterhouse Steak) and hitting a couple other local casinos.
    5. Score multiple Royals during a single trip (not that I wouldn't be happy with one but I've done that a few times)
