re: Who here thinks Las Vegas sucks?
Years ago I enjoyed playing blackjack as a form of mental exercise. You memorized the "chart", you would sit at a table with at least 5 and 10-15 hands an hour would be dealt.

Stay, split, surrender, double, Boom, Boom, Boom. Free drinks and comps. Fast is the adrenaline.

Even when they went to 2,3,4 decks, you could sense when there was a glut of face cards. You knew when the dealer waived the minimum that he knew he had a good group.

Last time I went to Vegas, everything was going great, until, I don't really know, but I suspect a newlywed at the second seat, looked at her cards, looked at the dealer cards, took a sip from her Mimosa, pulled out a credit card size chart that she had purchased in the gift shop and said, "well according to this, I should take another card or surrender". I'm surprised she was able to conjoin the X and Y axis. I never went back.

Do I like Vegas? Loved it, but it seems like a destination for weddings, trade shows and expos and concerts now.

re: Who here thinks Las Vegas sucks?
Fun in Las Vegas is entirely dependent upon how much you can spend. Everything costs absurd amounts after fees, especially food and alcohol, like double NFL stadium prices. There is quality if you’re willing to pay exorbitant prices for it.

I’m not much into gambling, but the sports books and blackjack can be fun if you’ve got money to burn. However, I can play cheap hands of blackjack in Baton Rouge, and the sports book at Beau Rivage in Biloxi is plenty nice enough.

For me, the draw of Vegas is the shows, pool parties, and club scene. If you cannot afford tickets to great shows, why are you there? Pool parties and clubs will charge crazy prices for drinks, but you will find fewer more fertile hunting grounds for picking up quality looking trim elsewhere in the world.

Vegas seems to be built to cater to this mythological 21-35 year-old, single, childless millionaire. If you can swing it, go for it, but for a budget conscious non-gambler, there are far better destinations for the buck.

I did enjoy the heck out of my time on Fremont.

I don't know about LV, but I have been disappointed in Reno

Pretty much. If I'm there on the company dime its whatever, but I would not plan a vacation there.
