    April 1, 1984 ~ Sahara ~ My trip started on the day before the LONG Culinary Strike. No room service. No-little casino restaurants open. Horrid cocktail service. Ant infested first floor room. Let the good times roll!

    Second trip: Landmark ~ 1985 ~ where I saw what I am sure were casino supplied working girls for a couple of drinking craps players from Texas. I thought they were girlfriends as the Texans would give them a couple of chips when they hit a good number for the girls to bet. The girls would bet a small denomination and go south with the green chips. The corker was when one of the guys asked where she was from, then asked her again for her name. A pit critter gave me the Hairy Eyeball for standing there and taking in the show.

    1988 Sahara. Went downtown and checked out ElCo at the time and thought, "What a dump!" Here I am 30 years later a downtowner! Who knew! I remember being blown away by Caesar's Palace. Things sure were different back then.

    2000 @ the MGM Grand on a family vacation. I was 12, blown away by the place, and I remember this beautiful blonde in a white thong walking past my chair at the pool and thinking "Yep, this is where I'm going to vacation as an adult."

    1972 - a motel (can't remember the name) probably between Tropicana and Flamingo.

    Late 80s/early 90s - Hacienda (where MB is today).

    1994, Frontier. It sucked.

    Spent most of the time at the Mirage, playing $5 blackjack with paradise rules.
