Two breweries recently opened locations in downtown Las Vegas and I was stoked to check them out. My original downtown Las Vegas Breweries plan was to stop by both Able Baker Brewing and the new CraftHaus new taproom.
Casino Trip Reports & Narratives
This year my summer break was a week on the Vegas Strip at Harrah’s. Usually, when I visit the Vegas Strip it’s for a meeting or checking out something specific. This Vegas vacation is especially fun because I spend the entire week (mostly) on the Vegas Strip like a tourist without a plan.
I finally made it to Atlantic City. I have gone to Vegas 3-8 times a year for the last two decades. I have gone to the other gamblin’ hubs like Biloxi, Tunica (RIP), and even Laughlin (RIP…oh wait that was just the general feeling of near death-ness there). But I finally made it to the East Coast mecca. I needed to get there and opportunity presented itself…in February.
ANYWHO… I suspect some of you may be going to Vegas for the first time and/or need a reminder on some things to do and not do if you want Vegas to like you on your next visit…because unless you’re a soulless prude, there WILL be a return…
Our destination…the place we could fit the most for the least. That place was the all new Treasure Island at the Mirage. (AKA The OG Encore). And for a splendid night of debauchery, myself and 21 of my peers piled into a room for the night. Buffets and my first slot experience later, Las Vegas became ingrained in me just as it had with my family before me.
DAY 2 – I’ve lost count of how many times I have gone to Las Vegas. It has to be more than 100 times. And yet, this last trip still had many firsts for me. It’s what makes the city great. Always renewing itself…just for me.

But wait, isn’t it Caesar’s Palace. NO! It’s actually not. Perhaps you have heard of Jay Sarno and his vision. Often when the “apostrophe conversation” comes up, people have no idea what I am talking about. Sometimes, I even like to tell the story backwards.
Trip Report | Las Vegas Winter Vacation — I’ve been vacationing in Las Vegas during December almost every year since I turned 21. The trip has gone through many iterations since it started. I’m happy that the “December Trip” still exists with the same group even though I’m living in Las Vegas.
Summerlin is a planned community about 20 minutes west of the Vegas Strip. The entire area is beautiful and a well thought out combination of suburbia and what I expected from Las Vegas.
