Definitely didn't wimp out. I would've given a trip report, but wasn't too pleased with the end result. Got there Thursday night and rolled dice until 9AM. Up $1900 after the first night! I was on top of the world. Well, I should've taken it easy the next 3 days b/c I gave it all back plus about $800 of my own. CFB was horrible for me. Needed ASU to win outright for a $700 parlay, and they lost by 1. If you didn't see the game, they had a blocked extra point taken back for 2 points. My Sooners got spanked by A&M, and I lost the first half line.
Other than that, went to Pure for the first time and it was a sausage fest. Prefer Tao. Balcony is a pretty cool vibe though, overlooking the strip. Also tried out the infamous Ellis Island that I always hear about. Definitely a great value. $12.99 for prime rib, 2 sides, salad, and beer!?!? Most people get the $8.99 sirloin meal, but I felt like prime rib that day. Not the best prime rib in the world but for $12.99, you can't beat it.
Gambled at City Center for the first time ever. Definitely a sweet hotel/casino. Sportsbook is tiny though. Also, the entrance is a bit off the strip, so they weren't jam packed with the casual gambler just walking by. Might be a bad thing for them, if they don't start getting a huge following that makes them their destination.
Also, this is the first time I hung out in Vegas for any days by myself. My buddy left after 2 days. Kind of boring to be honest with you. I was able to keep busy by gamblilng, but that obviously wasn't a good idea. Probably won't go to Vegas alone in the future. Overall, a fun time though.
