Default Las Vegas - I said I would never go back :(

So my wife's parents moved to Vegas. Now my wife's nephew is getting married there so off we go tonight to Vegas. When I was 21-23 I loved the place. Now I can't stand it.

Anyway, is there a good place outside of town to play some poker or are all the good games down in the big casinos?

We are staying 15 minutes away from the airport is all I know..So where ever that puts us.

we stayed at the Red Rock casino and resort west of the strip on our last trip for the wife's work conference and it was pretty nice. not strip trash or ticket clickers, more of a neighborhood type atmosphere.

Downtown casinos will not be as busy like the ones on the strip. More laid back also.

You better drive out to the Chicken Ranch to see if they have poker there. If not I am sure there are other things there to entertain you for an evening.

Yes, If you bring your wife and kids you may want to consider leaving them in the car though.

Be prepared to raise and then go all in if you get a good hand.

Ok, I'm back from Vegas!

Didn't lose a penny...because I didn't gamble.

Only thing exciting was taking my daughter to Freemont Street Sunday evening. Those are some strange street performers to say the least. And yes I got in trouble for taking my daughter there. She's 16 and should live and maybe make a full recovery. Not my fault that's where the buffet was
