Your first stop ...

Hi all. Just curious as to what everyone's very first thing is when they get in to Vegas. I'm headed there for my first time in a few weeks, but it seems like most people on here have been numerous times. So what is that traditional thing you do right away once you get yourself checked in to your hotel and ready to go?

Have a glass of wine and a late lunch somewhere in my home hotel. Favorites include: Noodles at Bellagio, THECafe at THEHotel (lobster cobb, and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, mmm.), Mix Lounge, or Fleur for 3 Saints Pinot and a couple small plates that include the tuna tacos. I used to love Dos Caminos for some tacos and mojitos, although its gone now...sniff sniff. So now, when in that neighborhood at least in the late afternoon, I'll pop into the bar at Carnevino and have expensive champagne, free spicy cheese straws and a little somepn, somepn off the bar menu.

Then the video poker machines in the casino call me...

After getting settled the 1st stop for me is usually the racebook. I handicap races on the plane, so I usually have a couple of bets I can make.

Seriously? Take the bags to the room, hit the bathroom, then go looking for trouble. Find it every time, along with a cocktail and slot machine. Life is so good!
