The Vegas trip has turned into a ritual of gaming err gambling, drinking, eating great food and people watching. After 5 days I'm ready to go home and one day after I'm home I can't wait to go back.

Ratings & Reviews
Stayed in a lakeview room. The room was dated in style but still very clean and well maintained.Really liked the size and layout for a regular room. Housekeeping was great. Will definitely stay there again. Have stayed again recently in the renovated rooms and really like them still a notch below Aria but awesome with a lakeview!
Getting woke up by the Fremont Street experience every hour on the hour rocks. Who needs an alarm clock? The valet actually washed our filthy Bronco. UPDATED: Really like what Derek Stevens ans his team have done with the joint! The rooms are upadated except the washrooms. Du'Par's is a great addition. Have stayed twice now in the new suites and they are awesome!!
Stayed at Red Rock for three days where the primary activity was golf. There are many great golf courses close to Red Rock. Fantastic room with a view of Red Rock canyon, awesome pool, hot cocktail waitresses and great bartenders at the sports book bar. We ate at Terra Rossa, The Feast Buffet, Grand Cafe and Turf Grill. They were all really good. Red Rock is a completely different Vegas experience, not as lively as the strip but a great overall experience.
So far I have stayed in the Carson and Gold towers. Both of which were very nice. Looking forward to staying in the Rush tower in June. UPDATED: Rush tower room was great. Loved the decor and bed. Best room on Fremont for sure and comparable to mid-high end strip rooms like Mirage or Mandalay bay. Always like the casino and the pools especially the Hideout are awesome!!
I have always wanted to stay at the Mirage and finally did so In January of 2010. The room was very nice and well decorated but I was not feeling the vibe in the casino. BLT Burger is a great place for a Burger and a Brew and Stack is awesome food but that is about all that is good for dining options. The selection of Rum at Rhumbar is great but the service on the patio was awful. The sports bar is the only casino bar to grab a drink, watch a game and play some bartop video poker and it's always packed. Another good casino bar would be nice. Overall I liked the Mirage but it really doesn't have an exciting vibe anymore, the casino renovation took away the uniqueness that was Mirage and made it just another non-descript casino floor.
Treasure Island is one of my favourite places to stay. I really like the rooms. The size of the hotel is nice. The service at the breeze Bar is awesome. They have done a great job with a sub-standard pool. The craps crews are very good and cocktail service is great. I wish the dining lineup was a bit better. UPDATE: Ruffin is ruining all that I enjoyed there. Barely visit anymore.

Odd beverage of the March 09 Trip, we are on Freemont so it should be in a yard glass, involve a deep fried twinkie, and some crack, I think that covers it

Sorry, but if I'm not the one running the hotel, you know it's going to get messed up. Look at the Hilton, or Bally's today. I'll call him up and try to convince him to bring back the pirate theme. Terry never listened to me...

You do know, that if you eat at the Rosewood Grille before you leave you get to take your picture holding a huge lobster just like the dude in the advertisement is? The kids get little lobsters to hold.

Hey donny. Yeah it's too bad that we didn't meet up. The Ms and I are heading back in early Dec for the marathon and then again in early Jan for a convention. Hopefully we can work something out someday.

Bacon at the Riviera? I saw the picture of the sandwich..it looks pretty heart stopping, but you had to see this Baconator. Just the grease...and cheese...and death. I bet it's great for curing hangovers!!!

I feel the best way to approach the question of what odd beverage we will be "questing" for in 60ish days is a moot point. It's going to be all of the above, I'm sure. But in honour of the RunnyD I think we should at least once ask for something with coconut in it. I'm still gonna keep my eyes open for Zima tho, I need to finish the story of my quest for Chuck, and I think it should somehow end in Vegas, not the Monk.
