    Good read!

    I always enjoy your reviews. And yes, you (and I) are Vegas’ favorite kind of player….our winnings are just saved up until they return to Vegas to be played again. :) Viva!

  3. Ooh I like this serial approach! This will help fill in the long days until my August trip.

  4. I’m right there with you on where I gamble. Even though I’m predominantly a craps player, my money just goes further downtown with better odds and no $15-$20 minimums.

    Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your trip!

  5. I couldn’t stop laughing after reading about the Doritos lady. A whole bag? Wow!

  6. I will only fly Southwest out of Detro Metro to Vegas these days and get the nonstop flight. There is usually an early morning nonstop flight which is always on time.

  7. I get so frustrated with SW! They only have that ONE non stop a day…at 7 am!!! I have to be at the airport at least by 5 am, which means I have to leave Windsor by 4 am, which means I get up at 2 am, which means I don’t sleep AT ALL! I wish they had a later flight!
    I always fly Spirit because they have several non stops a day.

    Wonderful pictures! Thanks.

  9. BLT Steak looks like a place I should consider for my next trip. You have a healthy attitude about gambling as entertainment with modest expectations.

    Argh….leaving us hanging!

  11. So glad you liked BLT Steak. It is now a must on my Vegas trips too. And I find Bally’s to be an underrated property.

    I just love your writing style and perspective. I didn’t know you hailed from Ontario as well. Looking forward to the next post!

  13. My determined mom figured out how to beat the slots, and it nearly always works for both of us. The trick is not to play your winnings back: every time you get a nice bonus win, keep the ticket separate as a trophy. Only play your gambling money and collect those trophies. Don’t cash them in until you have to. Intuitive gambling makes us Play Until The $ Runs Out but gloating over your trophy wins psychs you into keeping them. And they really add up!

  14. Oh, and I’m enjoying your trip story. I will watch for the rest of it. I spent a Halloween on the Strip some years back and want to do next Halloween on Fremont Street. I think it will be much more fun.

  15. Enjoyed this trip report, as all the others you’ve shared. Your comment about a perfect Rusty Nail hit home with me. My husband and I use to drink this drink….when we were much younger….and always in Vegas. It was a special drink to me! We live just outside of Detroit and make the tunnel trip to Windsor often to go to Caesars. 20 minutes to Windsor or 4 hours to Vegas…hmm, that’s what I enjoy most about the trip through the tunnel :-) Vegas is calling us back at the end of April…. Look forward to the rest of your report!

  16. I always love reading your articles. Staying at Mandalay Bay next week (in town to see my favorite band, Steely Dan at THE VENETIAN), but I think I have to stop by BLT Steak. Great pictures!

  17. I always love your articles and perspectives. You have a great attitude about Vegas….it’s entertainment. Looking forward to your next article!!

  18. Hey Roomie! Can’t wait to relive this last trip we took together. :-) My mouth is watering, remembering that Porterhouse!
