Default Leaving for Vegas

Leaving in 45 minutes to Vegas to visit with a few clients. I haven't been there in a few years.

While at the MGM Grand I plan to :

- play blackjack
- meet up with hotties and whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas (kidding)
- play roulette (kids birthdays)
- pretend I don't speak Asian at the tables.
- ask everyone I bump into if they are also going to see the gay lion show.
- eat at Wolfgang Puck (other suggestions?)
- take off my Timex during a poker hand and toss it to the dealer to see her reaction
- complement Bellagio doormen for beating the homeless away; in Atlantic City we have to step over them.
- carry Virginia Slims 160's and take em out and smoke em at poker.

Any other suggestions?
Numbers you'd like me to play to finance your boat to be?

Good luck, and have fun. That place can be a little addicting, so keep it real!

I leave on Monday for Vegas. Trade show, no wife!
I've been there before, and prefer to eat on the strip, gamble downtown. Craps/Blackjack in that order.

Have fun,

Mike

Do keep your wallet and your p....r in your pants in Vegas.

We like the Rio best for video poker. Or 4 Queens downtown.

Tony Roma’s restaurant for baby back ribs. It’s in one of the casinos, forgot which.

Can't remember the name of the place, but the best meal I got in Vegas was at the truck stop. Large steak, potatoes, veggies, salad, dessert and a beer just $9.99. I'm a big boy and couldn't eat it all. The slots didn't seem to tight either.

Definitely check out the water show at the Bellagio--very cool--and the Venetian (nicest place I've stayed in Vegas). I hear the new casino/resort at red rocks is supposed to be awesome, but it's a 30-40 ride.

Don't forget to string bet they love it. Also when you want to just call a bet and don't want any raisers behind you, say "I call and raise" , of course they won't let you raise but others will go ???????????????????? and be scared. Let me know how these tips work.

The Rio always seems to have some high octane energy and excitement, even if it isn,t on the strip. Go gamble a few bucks and watch the free floor shows. Don't now about the truck stop mentioned above, but for mass quanities of food for a next to nothing price, go to the buffet at Palace Station. They also have a pretty good casino.

Tip: When traveling "the Strip" by auto,avoid it! There is a parellel road(Industrial Road) Light traffic and only the fraction oftraffic lights!

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Just got back. Ate at a restaurant at the Palms called "9"; it is the best steakhouse I have ever eaten at!

As far as gambling goes, we played blackjack nearly the whole weekend. There were four of us; two who bet $400 or $500 a hand, and two who bet $50 a hand on average. I was in the latter group, and considering how much we played, I am not upset to be down in the hundreds and not more. Oh yeah, while we were playing on a cold table, one of my "high rollers" decided to change the luck by trading in his chips for all red chips ($5), and then betting hundreds at a time, in what he referred to as "the tower of power". It worked, although the pit boss was so nervous that we were going to make a mess for him and the cameras upstairs to sort through. I also learned that to change luck around you have to sometimes bet "the rainbow coallition": place your ante bet using every color chip in your arsenal, including silver; the dealers love the math work

I did keep my p in my pants , ray . When I first arrived I felt real old looking around at all the young girls (Justin Timberlake concert that night). But then I found out, too late as it were, about the ideal age difference between men and women. Take your age, divide it by two, and add seven. It works for all ages (If you are 15, your girlfriend should be 14 1/2; if you are 50, your girlfriend should be 32, etc.) I came across this wisdom from a cab driver who took me to the airport this morning. He had six wives so I trust him! He also had six teeth.
