Lessons Learned From Vegas

1. It’s possible to get a prime rib that’s cheap AND tasty. Go to Terrible’s Casino. Upstairs is a cafe that serves all different types of food. They have a hidden menu where you can order a T-Bone steak or a Prime Rib Dinner for only $7.99. Not only are the portions huge but the dinner comes with a side of green beans, your choice of baked potato or fries, a salad, AND a huge mug of draft beer. The food was surprisingly really GOOD. The steak and prime rib were cooked to order and they were really juicy and totally worth it! Hands down the best prime rib deal in vegas.

BTW, I found this great link with all of the dining specials in Las Vegas: Link

2. If you want to see poker superstars like Doyle Brunson, Jennifer Harmon, Johnny Chan, Phil Ivey, or others….head to the Bellagio poker room. In the back is a glass room where they can be seen playing on any given night. Supposedly the blinds for that room are 3K-6K. While we were there, Jennifer Harmon came out and walked right by us! She is so tiny in real life. We also saw Doyle Brunson wearing his famous cowboy hat. While we waited for the other poker players to come out we watched the people in the regular room. Wow, everybody playing in there were also such high rollers. We guesstimated that some of them had at least 30K just sitting in bills right in front of them. Crazyyyy!

3. If you want to find cheap shoes, head to the outlet! You can see it on the 15 freeway heading back from Vegas to LA. It’s in the group of “Safari” furniture outlets on your right hand side right after you are about to leave the city of Las Vegas. All of the name brand shoes are $30 and the no-name shoes are $20. They have all of the major brands including Saucony, Asics, Converse, Puma, etc…basically the types of shoes they have on their website. Most of them are crazy colors though but they have plenty that are normal looking and a great deal! I especially like Zappos because they carry sizes 5 and up whereas most places start at size 6. I’m a size 5.5 so this was shoe heaven for me!

4. Always bet black. Boyrobot slammed on black 4 times in a row in roulette and won each time! Another important roulette lesson is don’t think that just because a number hasn’t shown up in the last hour that it is bound to show up. Some numbers must have an antimagnet going on with the ball. We kept betting on 18, boyrobot’s favorite number, and it just never hit!

5. Never listen to boyrobot’s surefire sports bets. He was sure UCLA’s basketball team was going to win against Texas A&M (#6). So I dropped $50 bucks on the game. The spread was 4 points. Well, boyrobot was right, UCLA did win…but only by 3 points!!! If you watched the game, you will know how frustrating the ending was to watch. Sigh :(

The most painful lesson would have to be:
5. I suck at poker cash games. I think when I play with an unknown crowd I lose confidence in my skills and I start to play differently. Perhaps it just takes practice. Oh well, lessons learned!
