98000 after 14 levels.  in the 

Made day 2.  Started with 10k. Ended with 29.5k.    373 left.  I'm 104th.  128 get paid.  Grinded like a mf with 4800 to 8 k chips levels 2 to 7.   

I don't have an AJ offsuit busted on the turning river lingo to share, but took the fam to Vegas for the first time this week (their first time, not mine).  Had a great time despite the 115 degree hea

Was there during a bit of March Madness. Sat in the theatre. I think they had draft Bud Light for $2 but from what I remember during football season, seemed that it was order, then just tip.

Thanks...well in the theatre, you always have to pay...in teh regular sportsbook it's free + tip. The theatre is what puts hilton over the top IMO.

anyone been to the las vegas hotel and casino (formally hilton) since they lost the hilton franchise? Was a huge fan of the hilton sportsbook (free drinks as long as you're tipping $1, tons of seats, good deli)...and we're looking to go back during football season this year.

Was there last week, same as it ever was.

The Hilton that was by the Convention Center isn't a Hilton anymore? Or is this another place?

It is now the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino but it wasn't really a Hilton anyway, just in name. It is owned by some financial company who owes Goldman Sachs tens of millions of dollars and GS foreclosed on it. That place is connected to the convention center though so it's a gold mine, they'll figure it out. Edited by Doctor Detroit

Heading to Vegas in a couple weeks with a few other couples. Kind of a 40th birthday bash for a few in the group. We are staying at the MGM. Haven't stayed on the strip in a long time. This thread is a little long to try to sift through. Can anyone recommend some good bars to go to on the strip? We like to party and have a good time, but we are definitely not looking for the dance club types. I don't want to have to wait in line to get into any place. Also looking for some suggestions on a good place to do a nice dinner at least one night.

Can someone post or pm pattys info? Ill edit this when I receive it.Also, Make your pick for best 1st time Cirque du Soleil show.

pcllas@yahoo.comtifwiw, I found myself nodding off during "O" and that will be alot of people's favorite. The only other one I've seen in "Zumanity" and I enjoyed that more. Alot of info in here regarding the CdS shows, I'd try some in thread searches. If I was going to another one this go around, I'd probably hit the Beatles show, if it's still running.
What exactly is Patty's deal? What can she do? What level player do you need to be to get her services, etc? Possibly planning a trip in late summer with another couple. When does pool season end out there? August still humming along?

She can get you basicaly the best seats in the house for any cirque show plus a few others for roughly 70% of the cost. No need to be a big player or anything.August is still nice... Hot but nice.

Been out in August a few times. It's hot as hell. Like 110 hot. I'd say pool season would go through at least November. I'd much rather go late September. Edited by flapgreen

Going in September for a weekend of football watching. The LVH (former Hilton) is our sportsbook of choice. It will be about 8-10 of us going. The fallback option is 4 regular hotel rooms, but it would be cool to stay in the same suite. Am I out of bounds by being able to expect anything decent for $400/night?

Would be willing to stay within walking distance of the Hilton if that makes any difference.

How is labor day weekend out there? NEver been that time of year...

Hot.It's Vegas. You should have fun no matter what time of the year. If you don't then you probably hate life.
Good deal. Our plan is likely to sleep off the hangover till 10ish, then hit the pool for some low key drinking and socializing by the pool till 3-4pm. Then head in for nap, shower, etc... then back out around 7ish for dinner/shows and then the bars/casinos for the night. The couples are in early/mid 30's and while still unmarried with no kids and very young at heart, we're not huge on the club scene so I'm interested in the response to BeTheMatch's message above too. Last time I was in Vegas was for March Madness 2011. Looks like we're targeting Labor Day weekend at this point. Should be some good crowds but not the total sword fight that March Madness was :lmao:

Some of the best bars are in the new casinos...especially Cosmopoliton. The Chandalier Bar in Cosmo has multiple levels of seating and is an outstanding lounge experience with excellant drinks. The Cosmo also has a place I love called Book and Stage. It is a combination of a sports bar and a mixology bar. The bartender, Jenni, will take great care of you if you tell her what you like.

If you are looking for something really unique, there is an ice bar in Mandalay Bay (Minus 5). The entire place is made of ice, so you have to rent a coat to tolerate the temperature. Mandalay Bay also hosts Red Square, which is always a good time, especially if you like martinis. If you decide to pay a cover, the Foundation Room is on top of Mandalay and offers an incredible view of the strip (without being a bump and grind club scene).

If you want to venture off strip, there is a whole bar section on East Freemont Street that should have something for everyone. http://www.fremontstreetbars.com/

So, it really depends on what you are looking for. The Strip will offer everything from obnixiously sweet drinks by the yard to cocktails with 15 ingredients that take 10 minutes to make. You can find an English Pub, dueling pianos, bartender shows, live music, country bars, and lounges that range from chill to swank.

Nope. Not a sword fight at all.

I mean, except for the "Gay Days" festival in Vegas that entire week.

Most of the major hotels host pool parties, where you'll have to pay to get in, be lumped with hard-bodied 20 somethings, and pretty much be in the "club" scene. So make sure to check out which hotels don't host a club party or make sure they have a pool area for those who don't want to partake in the pool parties on the weekends if you want a more relaxing pool scene.

I had no idea the Hilton was no longer a Hilton, when did that happen?

Labor Day is a good time for vegas, that extra day helps and it's not TOO crowded (like Super Bowl weekend). I wouldn't expect to find any sub-$10 tables on the strip though, and even those will be in shorter supply than usual ($25 becomes the new $10).

Just got back from a four day trip to Vegas (M-Th). Wow, what a disappointment. Used to love making trips out there, but it has become the most overpriced and overrated place ever. I keep seeing how Vegas is "on the cheap" because of the economy out there, blah blah blah. What the wife and I found was a city loaded with overpriced drinks and even more overpriced food. Breakfast for two (were talking eggs, hash browns and pancakes people) and the bill is over $50? Really?? $8 for a domestic lite beer? Have to say, place has definitely jumped the shark for us. The one thing we both agreed on, that was our last visit. To many other places you can gamble at 1/10th the price.

About a year or so ago...still run by the same people though...just not a Hilton Franchise. Sports Book is 100% the same, which is our priority

When I got married we briefly discussed going to Vegas. My wife promised me that we would go for our 10th and get re-married by Elvis. Anyone here ever do a wedding in Vegas?

Think it was officially renamed in the beginning of the year.

No clue on suite prices, but you guys could always check out any place near the tram and take that to the Hilton LVC.

Going back to Vegas this summer. Have not been since last summer.

My wife and I will be looking for some good restaurants on the strip that offer great food. I am willing to spend a lot if it is good, but often times the price deos not reflect the food.

What do you guys got?

Has anyone ever done the free jump thing off the top of the Strasophere?

My buddy has, do you have a specific question?
I was thinking of doing it. Saw the info on their website. Did your buddy have a good time? Freak out? What?My one issue is that I've had inner ear problems my whole life, and I'm wondering if a rapid descent from 900 feet or whatever might be a problem on that front.

He liked it. He said you start to freak out when you are waiting but once you get over the edge it was awesome.

I'll have to ask him again. It was last year and that's when he told me about it. I'll ask when I see him again. Anything else you want to know I can ask..

What kind of food? How much is a lot? Do you want to drop a grand at Robuchon and have the meal of your life (chef of the century; $425 degustation menu)? Are you looking more for $100 per plate (the new Gordon Ramsey restaurant is receiving stellar reviews)? French food? American/steak? Modern or classic? Celebrity chef? Most chefs (Hubert Keller, Robuchon, Flay) have multiple levels of restaurants in Vegas:1. Fancy place with tasting menu ($100+ per person)2. Nice place that is more business casual ($50-75 per person)3. Casual/burger place ($20-30 per person)JB

Not to sound like a total wuss here (that seems unlikely at this point), but I'm just kind of wondering what he could compare it to. I mean, I have no experience to draw from. Nothing more than roller coasters and the like. I've never bungee-jumped or skydived or anything. The one amusement-park ride I hate is anything that just spins in a circle. I get dizzy. Nothing else really bothers me. Obviously this doesn't seem like it makes you dizzy, but what does it do? I just have no frame of reference here. I mean, do people puke during or after? Pee their pants? Or if they do, is that just from being scared before they go?

With stuff like this you just have to get outside of your head, and just understand that this is going to last 1 minute and then you will be walking away from this. There is VERY little real risk... just do it and then assess matters in a minute or two once you're on the ground and burning off the adrenaline.

Kind of like a band-aid, huh? That's what I was thinking. I just don't think I'd do real well if I was forced to stand out on that catwalk for any length of time while they were hooking me up or whatever. :shock:

Looking to probably drop about 200-250 between my wife and I. We are definitely not high rollers, but it is a birthday present for her.We have eaten at Eiffel Tower (Paris Hotel), Tao (Venetian Hotel), Stack (MGM), Gallaghers (New York New York), STK (Cosmo City Center). I remember seeing Hubert Keller on Master Chef's and thinking he made some good dishes.Don't like super fancy. Just wondering if anyone has a dish they really liked somewhere perhaps.

This is basically what he said. You go up in an elevator. Eventually you get out to an observation area, with your harness on. Then when it's your turn you get up on a platform and they attach a safety wire. He said that's when the WTF did I just agree too happens.

Wind is blowing you are standing on the edge and then you feel real sketchy when they take off the safety wire to attach the "ride" wire. SO you stand there for a second with no wire. He wasn't sure how long you stand there but it feels like forever he said.

He would assume it feels like skydiving but he's never actually sky dived

Well for about the 5th time in this thread, I am going to recommend Mix at THE Hotel. It's got the best view of any bar/restaurant in Vegas (at least that I've been in) and the food very well may be the best food I have ever eaten. The braised beef is amazing, as is the filet topped with foie gras.I have also eaten at Bouchon in the Venetian and it is excellent.

I have eaten at Keller's Burger Bar in Mandalay, and that was a fun experience. Very good beers on tap there. I've been to Craftsteak twice. It's good, but I don't think it lives up to all of the hype. I plan to go to Gordon Ramsay Steak in Paris hotel next time I am in town.The one restaurant I throw out to anyone visiting vegas is Lotus of Siam. It is regarded as the best Thai restaurant in the nation. It's off strip and requires a cab ride, and it's nothing fancy from the outside, but the food is incredible. The menu is daunting, so just tell the server what you like and your price point, and they will build you an experience. The two other restaurants I suggest are more on the cheap eats end. I really like the steak and shrimp gambler's special at the Hard Rock's Lucky's 24/7 ($7.77), and I liked Ellis Island the one time I went there. I would actually choose those < $10 steaks again over another $70 cut from Craftsteak. For example, I'd rather eat at Ellis Island and see Absinthe than eat at Craftsteak for the same price. That's the economist in me coming out though...

I'll be in Vegas soon and will be going out with a group of three couples one night. We'll be renting a limo for some bar/casino hopping. We aren't interested in ultra-lounges or dance clubs but would rather go to cool and interesting places for a simple fun night out. So far our limo itinerary includes the Double Down Saloon, The Hard Rock for a drink at the center bar (tradition), The Peppermill and we want to end our night at the Cosmo for the Chandelier Bar and a Slice.

My question is - are there other bars or locals spots (like Double Down or Peppermill) that we should check out? Or any casinos that have a cool bar that's easy to get in and out of for a drink? (Note - we'll be heading downtown on a different night so won't be including any stops there on limo night). TIA.

Friday afternoon bump. I also want to ask if anyone has recommendations for a limo company. I've had good luck in the past with Presidential Limo but like referrals. TIA.
