    How about an In and Out restaurant. Quick cheap food. I went to one in Laughlin.

    there are weather sites that can tell you the weather to expect for a certain week in sept
    I typed in "things to doing in vegas sept 2018".......and i got a full page of links

    A blackjack or craps table in vegas is similar to a craps table or BJ table in sault ste marie michigan. You are going to visit one of the brst places in the workd as far as cusine abnd entertainment....and you are looking for 5 dollar meals?

    My suggestion is..if you want to gamble...if there are places local to you ...then go there. But if u want a real vacation where you gamble and buy into all the thing you cant get at home...then save up and go to vegas and enjoy it all.

    vegas is expensive. you only live once. And you are worth the money..

    dont be one of the many people that go on vacation to vegas for the first time, and all they can talk about when they get home is details of their action at the tables. That would be sad.

    people who live there of course cant afford to live daily as i mentioned. But if you are flying in, and you are staying at a decent hotel(not great but decent and centrally located)......and its your first time....then plan on spending money.

    If you go to nathans for 2 hot dogs fries and a drink at NYNY.....you will probably drop 18 dollars for that simple meal. You cant even get a value meal at mcdonalds on the strip for 5 dollars.

    In the end you get what you pay for. If you want to go to a dive buffet somewhere for 9.99.......be ready to spend some time in your room ...more like bathroom.

    the odds are that you will lose at the tables gambling....so at least spend some money on yourself on things you will remember. And you wont remember a 5 dollar meal or cheap entertainment.

    Although the Dam tour is nice....

    and if you want cheao food...just drive 3 hours to victorville......they also have things to do there.....https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attracti...alifornia.html

    a place where you can get a 5 dollar sandwich. I can attest to that. I stayed there for a week for business.

    This is Barney,

    Most advantageous question Mr. Lucky. On last trip to the Vegas we stayed at most nicest place that had no resort fee, parking fee, or room fee. Located in most central location in tunnel right below the Ins and the Outs Burger place. When it rained very much hard we got free bath even. Also met many greatest and interesting personages wandering by bed each night of stay. If looking for most greatest and cheapo las vegas accomodations, give the southside tunnel a try. Here's a picture of the LID (world class dice controller) from the 2016 trip relaxing in the all purpose room.




    Thank you very much

    Monet what is your fascination with axel and bad mouthing him. Surely you guys must have met in person one or more times

    Do you have to stay on the central strip? Go to any Stations Casinos and get a players card. Not one bet is required. They have a special menu for players card holders at their 24 hour Grand Cafe restaurants.

    Breakfasts are $4 and dinners are $8. Tip not included.

    Very good food.

    Edited to add: you do not need to stay in the hotel. Just get a card and eat. No play required.

    +1 I'm wondering the same, you guys met up and since then nothing but negativity towards Axel. I consider myself a good judge of character and Axel seems to be spot on. (Online character)

    Weather: nineties during the day, about seventy at night: no jacket required.

    Events: there are many websites listing this: google "Las Vegas events September 2018."

    Will you have a car?

    If so, consider eating off strip: again, google up info on where to go via trip advisor, yelp or similar sites.

    The strip is unique as far as a place to view and experience excess in all of its forms, but it can be expensive if you do more than just eyeball.

    I second eating at least one meal at In 'n Out: best fast food hamburger joint I've been to (Double double, gorilla style, fries, vanilla shake).

    There are interesting things to see off strip, including the Atomic Testing Museum and for the adventuresome there is what is reported to be a great zipline near Boulder City called Bootleg Canyon Zipline,

    You want to believe in Unicorns? Go believe in Unicorns.

    Have you lived in Vegas over 25 years?
    Have you lived in the AP/Hustler Lifestyle for 35 years?
    Do you know or know about the people in Vegas and how it really is in real life compared to Online BS?
    Do you know just about everyone in this town or know people who know everyone in this town?
    Have you guys actually worked over 10 years for a Casino in Vegas... I have!?

    Does Ozzy realize he is agreeing with a new member who named himself Rob Singer Who??

    I don't think either of you know what the fuck you are talking about.

    I bumped this up to ask a question about the Nugget but can't seem to start a new thread. It's been a while since
    I've been to Vegas because of the Obama recession. My question is which tower is the better at Golden Nugget? I've stayed there twice and I think it was the north tower but I can't recall. Could someone give me some insight?
    I'll miss Alan's profound stupidity.

    Maybe there is no north tower. Rush tower?
    I'll miss Alan's profound stupidity.

    Rush Tower is better.

    But make sure they don't place you in a location facing a busy intersection.

    I ended up there last year, and trying to sleep was a nightmare.

    Is Rush tower the one that the elevator is right near the casino. I remember the other one being a hike to get to.
