    Discounting some of the massive LVA meets of old, I've met more peeps on the course than not. I mean, sure, we end up eating and drinking at some point, but golf has been the velcro for nearly 20 years.

    That would be FUN! Anytime!
     
    Hopefully there's another trip before this one
    My wish for an earlier trip came through.

    Golf is similar to poker.

    You ride in a cart/sit at a table for five hours and make a new friend. Cheers!

    I met a bunch of VMBers last 4th of July (2018) at @Chuck2009x's group pull. I met @Crawfordesquire this past trip. I would love to meet anyone from the board, but especially hope I cross paths some day with: @Sonya, @ffejry, @ardee, @spicole, @tringlomane, and @Richard Alpert. I know there are more I'm forgetting! :)

    I think I need to visit Vegas more often and at different times of the year...and without my kids to make some of these happen!

    I wouldn’t mind playing baccarat with @DaiLun. I’d very much like to buy him dinner and have him introduce me to some different types of food. I pretty much know who has authenticated Kobe beef, but his food reviews catch my attention, and I’m guessing I’d learn a lot from him about foods I don’t know much about, and don’t generally eat.

    He strikes me as a gentleman, and fairly conservative with his spending, which appeals to me. I’m guessing he can likely play to a much higher level than he does, but chooses not too. Reminds me of another guy I know pretty well. Me.

    Then again, I could be wrong, and I don’t generally think it’s prudent to meet people from message boards.

    But I’ve made exceptions before.

    Runner up would be @EastCoastVegasFan! Because he seems genuinely friendly and generous.

    Both guys would likely not be falling down drunk, and I think I’d probably enjoy an interaction with both.

    I agree! He always seems so nice in his posts!

    I do wonder sometimes if there is an axe murderer lurking on VMB. Seems rather against what we're taught about hooking up with total strangers. LOL.

    Then again, I allow total strangers to drive me around in Ubers and Lyfts. :p

    @Golfer - Thank you for those kind words. Dinner at Chubby Cattle, Ma Gal, or Hobak might be an experience that we'd both enjoy. I typically meet VMBers in the Laurel Lounge for starters, then see where it goes from there.

    many moons ago on a distant board we were having our first big meet.... i was booked and a guy from the board got in touch with me and asked if he could crash my room.... he seemed nice enough and i agreed.....

    so there i was at the GC and told him where to meet me.... gave him his room key and he said he'd be back shortly...
    come back and sits in at the blackjack table... like i said seemed like a fine southern gent....
    i order a beer and he orders a double on the rocks..... ok...my kind of guy...... we've been friends ever since....

    hey, i could have been the axe murderer....

    @DaiLun At some point I'll decide that Vegas presents a value to me again, and I'll take your offer, with your recommended restaurants. I know my way around town, and I could probably point out a couple of places you might not be familiar with, including some pretty private gaming areas in some of the casinos. It's not really my deal anymore, but there are some pretty cool places to go see at least once if you get the chance. And not many get the chance. V/P is one that comes to mind.

    @EastCoastVegasFan! It's a great rule to live life by. You seem to understand it. There really is no reason to flash around $50K in chips to look cool. Be a drunk ****** who treats the hourly employees poorly. Or somehow think you are better than someone who only has a $300 gambling budget. I just try to get better at being a decent person on a more regular basis, but I'm human and prone to failure.

    So as everyone can probably tell, I'm in no rush to go back to Las Vegas, and I used to go 5-6 times a year. I was going to be there for the Pacquiao fight this weekend, and I was going to try to get the attention of the new Circa, via The D. But communication stopped, and I asked myself the question that I've recently started to ask. Am I the customer on vacation, spending money, and sometimes a lot of money, or am I the business getting paid? Because in my business, if I pay vendors, the burden of delivering and customer service is on them, and if I'm the recipient of revenue, it's the exact opposite. So when it turns into work, I find other entertainment venues to spend my money at. It will change. There will be an economic downturn in Las Vegas. Casinos will figure out some people are going other places. etc.

    Always tough to lose a good thing, but you have the right attitude.

    I want to meet @Breeze147 but, he thinks I'm a stalker and is dodging me.

    I also want to meet @dewey089 because he's the master when it comes to maximizing comps, deals, coupons, whatnot. I just want to sit at his feet and learn. He also probably thinks I'm a stalker.

    Ditto!!! I might have a Vegas wedding to attend in the spring so my plans might have changed.

    @Richard Alpert I don't think I'll be in your hood this summer... I never got an invite (yet)
     
    SPRING BREAK!!!

    @DaiLun was super kind to send me a poker chip for my collection I didn’t have and we still have never met in person. Lol
    Hahahaha! I’ve already met and drank with @tringlomane the President of Percentages and Practicality! So I beat a bunch of you VMB’ers to that one! ;)
    I know Breeze would have me laughing non stop and he’d still probably want to kill me afterwards...
    I want to meet breanna! I think we have a lot of common interest.
    Also EastCoastVegasFan because I also treat others how I want to be treated and he seems very kind. There’s not enough of those people anymore!
    I’m up to meeting anyone when I’m in town and look forward to it!

    Thanks for the shout out! We are are like bizarro kindred spirits... we have been in Houston since the mid-90s except for a 4-year stint in Denver, and we never mind spending money to eat and live like a king and queen in Vegas. :D I love how you do Vegas, @Vegasworm!
