    check my log, I was just in Vegas.

    There is a Gold's about 15min off the strip where Mark Swank has a powerlifting team. Other than that, most places will have something you can use... but everything is going to cost you. The nicer places are upwards of 20 dollars a day.

    theres really no point to lift while in Vegas. chalk it up as a nice off week with lots of binge drinking and money loss.

    igo... being as I ball hard, I was at the Venetian


    Here's my best advice. Don't play cards. Bet horses and games (assuming you know how to do this). Any decent sports book is all you can drink, just tip the beer bitch. Treasure Island has a nice sports book and the GnT's are strong... this is also the reason why I pissed in the closet of a $500/night suite

    If you don't know how to bet the ponies... Harrah's has some $10 black jack tables and comp'd drinks. If you get into Casino Royale before 8 you can get on $5 black jack. Be wary of Casino Royale, though. Its a shithole and there was some shady dealing going on (i.e. I lost $400 in 8 minutes, and everyone I was with busted out... but the locals sitting at my table didn't lose a hand)

    everyone has their own games in vegas. i personally love pai gow. it's slow as hell, and you can get 5-6 drinks without losing over $50. roulette, blackjack, and hold em is coo too. going right before new years. can't wait. eff the gym for those 4 days.

    Last time I went, I used the Mandalay Bay and Golden Nugget spas to work out. They don't have much, but it's something. Mandalay Bay has some sort of weird lighting. Oh yeah, there are some situations where you can see the women in the spa.

    thanks for the info. fucking mandalay is baller as well, but they're booked.

    I'll be playing blackjack, and some roulette, and would love to play craps. Drinks are free anywhere you play pretty much.

    I need to find bars and clubs that won't charge $35 bucks a head like last time, where i spent like $200 bucks hopping around till the early hours.

    btw - just because the hotel is full doesn't mean you can't use the gym/spa. It's just a short walk

    Try the golden nugget, then. They allow people from other hotels.

    Another tip...

    Go to guest service and get a players card (one persons name only). They may give you freebies right off the bat. Ask for copies of the card and give it to your friends, girlfriend, wife, etc. Playing with that one name will build you credit fast. It can also work across different casinos since they tend to have common owners. They will start to send you mail giving you free rooms, free play, and BUFFETS!!!


    I got 3 days completely free at the Bellagio. Food, room, $200 of free play. My view from the 16th floor :bowdown:

    :dunno:

    You're going to spend money in vegas no matter what, why not build up rooms and food while you're at it.

    It doesn't seem like much at all. I know alot of them just start mailing out rooms with very little played. They still make their money. My mom gets rooms for places she hasn't been to in years.

    Casino War at the Hard Rock! I won like $300 playing that. Also if you can find a military person to get you on base you could work out at Nellis for free, but it's in North Vegas.

    is the players card basically a loan? i heard about this- one of my account managers opened an account for $1million in the borgata to get free perks, but rarely dips into it to cause him issues

    I paid an outrageous daily rate for the gym at the Flamingo the last few times I've been in Vegas for trade shows. This time I'm taking the week off...

    My company covered my drinking and strip club excursions but wouldn't foot the bill for the gym usage; -go figure.
