    Wife & i were there on new years eve 2000. One million people on the strip. What a night mare, & i hate crowds.BUT, I was staying at the monte carlo casino & won a $5000 & a $2000 jackpot. WHen i was checking out of the hotel they told me that they comped me the whole stay there.That was a good trip. Now to age myself, i saw elvis in person in 1965 there.DAMN i`m old.

    Win? yea right, after we finished sight seeing Hoover dam and the strip we had $80 left to blow and them casinos let us play for about 15 min.

    the show we went to see was called misery or something like that and it was Assam with there acrobatic skills and talent (im telling my daughter that wifey made me go see chippendales (male strippers) and im sticking to it)

    arrested? wifey installed a nose ring and a very short chain. wallet in the front pocket and dont look at the ladys, this is not a place you wont to be incapacitated

    This will be the first new years since 2001 where I will not be in Vegas. I am really going to miss it.

    You're right. I also won $7500 dollars. Which paid for a 2-week trip to Maui with my "would have been bride".
