First off let me just say this, I love Vegas. I have multiple casinos within 45 minutes of where I live and I visit Atlantic City 3-4 times a year. I go to these specifically to gamble. I have stayed in Atlantic City on overnight or weekend trips well over 100 times in my 17 years of being “gambling legal” and a few when I was underage. I visit my local casino once a week or so to play poker and sometimes some blackjack or slots.
When I get to Vegas though, a switch flips inside me. I am sure others have this magical switch too but I feel like a different person. The drinks taste better, the steaks are more tender, the girls are much hotter and the gambling, well that sucks no matter where you go. Most people will only write a review about great times, a terrible experience or how they won. People who had an average experience or lost gambling will usually not take the time to write a review or mention it. Well as both you and I know, 95% of us, if not higher, who go to Vegas come home with less money in our pockets. I would assume that at least 95% of us who read these boards though have great times in Vegas. This was one of those trips for me. I lost and I lost and I lost some more. I barely played because all I did was lose BUT wow did I have fun when I wasn’t gambling.
This is one of the things that makes Vegas so great. When I am in Atlantic City, there is not much to do when not gambling. Sure, you can walk the boardwalk or even take a pushcart to your next location (if you don’t know what that is, look it up). You don’t need to worry about a long haul because the max price for a cab is $13 around the city. There are great restaurants and even many of those that can also be found in Vegas. There’s only one huge problem with all of that, it’s not Vegas.
Well this trip is the 2nd time that a good buddy of mine has joined me on a trip to Vegas. None of our other friends were able to get away from work, wives, girlfriends, money issues or whatever so for the 2nd year in a row it’s just the 2 of us. We are both closer to 40 now than 30 and love to gamble, drink and have a good time. I love my vodka with (insert anything) and good dark craft beers. I gamble on everything in Vegas.
Below you will find a summary of my 4th trip to Sin City, which will be my 2nd TR. Last year’s TR…11/7-11/13 1st Time TR More of a Summary 6 nights 39 Casinos, that I posted on TA can be found
If you don’t feel like checking out last years report I can tell you it was jam packed. Yes I was inside 39 casinos last year and gambled in most of them. This year was around the same but did not gamble in all and skipped a few. I will not break this up by day but will break up by topic again. I think it’s easier to follow and hope you get more info from it this way. If you have any questions please feel free to ask in this forum or PM.
