During the day, MGM had 5 dollar craps and blackjack/various table games.  can't say the same for the other big ones.  If you go early in the morning and there isn't anyone around you can ask for a 5 dollar table and they'll probably give it to you if you have 3 or 4 people with you.

I now LOVE craps.  Can't believe I put off learning how to play for so long.

go to cheapovegas and look for happy hours at pools and stuff when you are there.  They happy hour at our pool was fantastic.

Cire, great report. I can tell the entire first half was total BS but I love you for it anyways.

Now for Vegas alums: Spending a week out there a month from now, how do I proceed? No gambling suggests because I only hit the nickels and spend my money on tips to keep the dranks comin. Otherwise, I am a stodgy, stuck-in-my-ways bad person who degrades females and Obama lovers, what's the best place to have fun? tia

ps don't say on Fremont

Reno sounds about right for you

here is my vegas report from friday 8/6 till monday 8/9.......

this was suppose to be a bachelor party for my buddy. well he called off his engagement back in may, so 4 of us still decided what the hell lets go to vegas.

mexican = bullet dodger
fat man = fat guy
asian = chinaman

Day 1
fly united out of KC to denver at around 8am. they showed  "parks and rec" and "csi" episodes during the flight, and the exact same episodes from denver to vegas. the mexican and myself land in vegas around 11ish vegas time, the asian wont be arriving till saturday evening because of some nerdy computer test he had to take in omaha. the fat man landed in vegas around 8am and is already shitfaced at the airport when we meet him, and i mean shitfaced. take a shuttle to our hotel the aria. very very very nice. simple rough ridin' amazing. rooms had touch screen remote that controlled everything from lights, background music, window shades (ceiling to floor window), tv, ac, etc. nicer than anything we needed. 20th floor up and we (mexican & i) were one room from the SE corner of the whole place. had a view straight down into the pool area. should have packed some binoculars. rooms and flights were $480 a piece thru travelocity.

i basically put zero planning into this trip. everybody else had been before so i relied on them to show me the sites and what not, mistake on my part in the long run, still had a blast while out there.

drop our bags off and head down to the cabby area because we are starving. the mexican and i yell at the fat man for a while because he is drunk and rough ridin' annoying at this point. he takes the hint and promises to behave himself. we get a cab and tell the cabby to take us to an off the wall place, with cheap food and booze that is near by. hello ellis island brewery and casino. lil local place with very cheap shitty micro brew, but great cheap food.

after that we hit the strip. the mexican and fat man cant really decide on what to do at this point. i make an executive decision and decide to knock out the one thing i really wanted to see in vegas, which i learned of here at goEMAW.com. O'Sheas. what a fun crap show type place (ended up spending most of our time in vegas here) that always had something going on. bands playing, karoake, midgets running around, beer pong tourneys, hold'em tourneys, a burger king inside, $1 drinks, and was the one place that we found that was in full swing 24/7.

we all gambled and drank here till around 6ish or so. i played mainly versions of texas hold'em the entire time we were out there. after 4 days i was -$125. we then walked back down to the aria walking thru most of the hotel/casinos on the way back. it was over 100 every day we were out there but the heat wasnt that bad. not like here in kc. you were hot but never broke a sweat. the fat man sweated quite a bit.

get back to the aria. i gamble there for a while while fat man is passed out and the mexican does who knows what and gets cleaned up. i get cleaned up and we go down to hooters to eat. the mexican has to eat at every hooters he sees, weird habit. hooters was not what you would think for vegas. the girls were nothing special at all and just your normal locals. but i dunno if they mumped up or what, but our appitizer of friend pickles was enormous, like 3 times what you would get in KS. i was happy. after eating we start gambling at hooters, fat man says he feels like crap so he goes back to the aria. the mexican proceeds to lose over $200 in about 20min playing 3 card poker. he gets angry we leave and go to the mgm and gamble there till around midnight. we go back to the aria, fat man has cashed out for the night. we hit up O'Sheas again and proceed to drink and gamble the night away till around 530am. the fat man caught a second wind and re-joined us around 330am or so. day 2 coming....

Day #2

wake up at 1130am fully clothed (minus a shoe) to sportscenter screaming at me at 1130am. btw the beds in the aria are the most comfy things you will ever lay on. we stumble around take showers and what not and decide to eat at "the buffet" in the aria. it was $25 a plate and for $6 more all you could drink bloody marys!!!!! signed my ass up. i procede to eat a whole alaskan fishing vessel of crab legs, smoked salmon, sushi, and tons of various types of shrimp. i hit pretty much just the seafood part and the dessert part of the buffet while drinking a ton of bloody marys (the start of my fall). as far as buffets go the normal food was nothing special, seafood was good, but the dessert bar was out of this world. we took our sweet time and left a lil after 2pm. almost forgot they had the best french toast i have ever tasted.

the mexican and fat man decided the day before they are going to enter a poker tourney at O'Sheas at 4pm. so we head down there. they sign up for the tourney and i start gambling and drinking. the tourney had over 40 people in it and took till almost 7pm to get over with. the mexican took 3rd and brought home over $350. mexian and fat man play some craps and roulette.  i was up and down most of the day, got up $50 and got tired of gambling so i went and bought some cigars (cigar bar inside O'Sheas) and sat my happy ass down at the bar and do some major people watching. The entrance to O'Sheas is just a 30-40 opening on the corner of the building, the bar sits right inside. I am drunk. While just chilling here for maybe 1.5 hours i experienced the following. A midget running around the bar pouring shots out of his pants and groping young hotties, a cat fight of 2 trashy women (o'sheas is on the trashy side of things), got offered cocaine twice by the same guy (he must have forgot the first time around), and i almost forgot. EMAW was present in vegas. on Day #1 i wore an all purple KSU shirt and got high fived 4 times while walking the strip.

hit up some mexican joint called "something something cantina" amazing food, and they sold 60oz beers or 32oz margaritas in glasses you can carry around the strip. eat there and drink one of those beers. we then hit up coyote ugly, this place was HORRIBLE. bar service was terrible, girls were hot but wasnt alot of them prancing around and the place was tiny. think of a very shitty pbr bar or fuel. sometime while at the cantina place the asian shows up and proceeds to buy everyone at the bar shots. we go back to the aria around 11pm. the fat man and me gamble while the other guys are getting cleaned up. i am a mess. we go hit up place called called diablos, sorta like a biker bar/club place. it was a good time but i was out of my mind. i catch a cab back to the aria and pass out a lil after 2am.

the rest of the guys party it up at diablo and some other bar till 430am and then finished up at the aria. day #3.....

I think this may be the mexican place you were talking about and not the biker bar.  They have excellent bar type mexican food.  Love their nachos.  Also, it is mere steps from Aria so I don't think you would need a cab :dunno:

day #3 (sunday)

wake up around 10am. damn those beds were comfy. lay around sip on a few beers and watch kill bill. the fat man was very sleepy today and in a bad mood. he was WAY down on gambling and he was in vegas from friday thru thru thursday, his mom was getting re-married out there so we planned our trip along with his moms wedding. the rest of us head down to the restaurant that is outside of the aria near the pool. everything with the aria is top notch. there are maybe 5-6 differant bars and places to eat inside. all expensive and super nice. they have 2 clubs inside the bar also. saturday night there was a $50 dollar cover at haze (club) for guys $30 if you were staying at the aria, and a 40yrd line of just smoking hot hotties trying to get it. they were only taking passes and vips that night for the ladies, if you were female and a walk up, get the eff out. we couldnt get in because not all of us brought slacks and a jacket.

back to day 3.... so we eat down at the pool. about $15-20 a plate. we then chill at the pool for the next 3 hours or so. didnt drink alot down there because it was $7 a bottle and i had pre-gammed a bit upstairs. beautifull people EVERYWHERE, basically an overload of female eye candy. it was insane. we gamble some in the aria later that afternoon then get cleaned up for our last night in vegas. we go back to that cantina place and eat there again. the fat man and the asian are in no mood to gamble so we decide to hit up this huge arcade. forgot what it was called but it is right underneath the giant m&m. we hit up the cantina place for 60oz beers and play unlimited video games for 2 hours for $25. basically a huge dave and busters. it was actually a really good time. we then hit up the cantina place again for the big beers, by far the best deal on the strip as buying alcohol goes. $15 for 60oz. we walk the strip, drink, stop in a ton of casinos gamble a bit and move on. go back to the aria were the mexican steals the show and the casino floor.

he starts playing $10 hand war at the aria along with the asian. he proceeds to win $800 dollars. when they sat down they were the only 2 playing. by the time he got up the table was full and prolly 20 people crowded around the table cheering them on. waitress staff was awesome, whiskey sours like it was coming out of the kitchen sink.

we then find ourselves back at o'sheas around 2am for much of the same, we party it up till 6am. the asian attaches himself to a young 20 something canadian and i get stuck playing wingman/grenade jumper on the older sister. we walk the strip back to our place stopping here and there. the mexican disappears sometime during the walk back (with a lady, so he says) the fat man cashed it in around 3am because he had a family function the next morning. get back to the aria, drink at some bar there. expensive. and then we all go upstairs. asian nails his canadian, mine is married and plays that card on me and heads home without her sis. day #4.....

day #4

the asian leaves before i even wake up. he has an early flight back to omaha. the fat man is up and gone around 10am for his family crap. the mexican and i check out around 1130 am. check our bags with aria and we gamble a bit. then catch a cab back to where our adventure started. ellis island brewery. we eat and drink there while watching some baseball game till around 5pm. catch our planes, sleep pretty much the entire way back and thats vegas for you.


notes.....

the heat isnt that bad. foreigners EVERYWHERE, tons and tons of asians, persians, and for some reason canadians. i wanted to hit a sports book place but both times i hit the one up at the aria it was closed. i wish we would have took a trip down to the old part of vegas and gambled down there. wish we would have hit a strip club, the fat man has a moral/religious thing so we didnt. traffic was terrible. would like to see a behind the scenes type show of all the people that just work on the strip. i had a blast being the first time out there, dunno if i could do more than 4 days out there though.

i know i am forgetting some stuff. any questions just ask.

So on the other side of Monte Carlo?  Like, Diablos is on the S side of Monte Carlo and this place is on the N side of Monte Carlo?
