    We’ve stayed there twice. Rooms reminded of us Harrah’s with a tropical flair added. Comfortable, but simple. Casino and drink service were fine, but was approached twice on the casino floor by people asking for money. They need to stop that somehow.

    I overall like the place. It's simple and nice, but I agree.... I was approached the few times. The honest truth is that I played at Tropicana once last year in the spring... Lost some money. They started comping and I have no desire to play or stay there.... BUUUUTTTT might as well use the FP, and food comps, right? ;)

    Warming up for Vegas... had these hits tonight at the local and a few others I couldn’t get a pic of. Panther was freaking tight tonight... really tight taking into consideration high volatility game. Even with the hits... down 1k. Cutting my losses and coming home with 3k in my pocket! PHEW!!!

    Can’t believe it’s only Tuesday! Flight leaves late afternoon on Thursday... that’s way too far away.

    Meals this trip will/might be uneventful. Not that I really eat very much when I’m in Vegas. Been slowly trying to change that around as I realize the great meals should be a big part of why I go, as well as utilizing the nice comps.

    Will do Oakville steak and Robert Irvine’s at Tropicana.

    Anyone have some suggestions for eateries at the Palms??? Suggestions for Rio?

    It's not exactly "In" Rio but close by is a pretty good gastropub called The Blind Pig. We ate there and had good food, good drinks and good service.

    So was just texting with @jyen earlier today. The two VP games I focus on are BP for lower variance reasons and DDB for a little more excitement not reasonable variance compared to TDB and TTB!

    I’m still trying to decide on single line play or multi line play. I’ll make the decision when I get there but thought I would stir up a little pre-Vegas convo.

    Sounds like you need an escape to Vegas. With a cigar of course.

    You got that right! :)

    Funny you mention cigars. I’ve never been a smoker but I’ve recently gotten a little into cigars.

    Any cigar aficionados have advice for newbie cigar enthusiasts? Besides, “don’t start smoking cigars?” ;)

    @Wanker751 is the expert. Ron likes to smoke them in Vegas, usually Tatiana flavored cigars. They aren’t expensive and smell good. Cherry, vanilla, rum, groovy blue, etc.

    You will probably like milder cigars like Davidoff, Macanudo or Montecristo.

    If you get the chance to try my personal favorite, Opus X, go for it. Pairs great with some old scotch.
