:-)......the fact is that you do write very well!

I am looking forward to your review to guide me during my visit. I did eat at Pizza Rock on my last visit in January and it was quite good. The place appears to have some association with Downtown Grand, but it is a stand alone restaurant across the street from the hotel, so I am not sure why it is listed as one of the restaurant venues on DG's website. You should definitely go when you are there.

Thank you for the compliment! I've had others tell me I write real good.

Thanks for the tip on the restaurant, and if you can remember any specifics about it, please PM them to me for incorporation into my Review.

I think I will do The Commissary for lunch, Red Mansion for dinner and Stewart Ogden for breakfast the following morning, if I want breakfast that day. If I can get a free restaurant (Pizza Rock) to incorporate into my review from you, I'll take it, because I'm really not planning to return to the Downtown Grand after I stay one day/night and eat at a few places.

I have the free play article that I have to work on, so of five nights I am staying, I'm going to The Strip during the daytime two days. Other than that, I just want to stick to Fremont Street pretty exclusively, with exception to going to El Cortez...maybe.

It's a little known fact but El Cortez is located at 600 Fremont St.

I actually knew that, to be honest, I just meant around the Fremont Street Experience properties, and the Plaza...if I end up staying there.

It's basically just that I'm going to do one Craps session and it will either be at Fremont or El Cortez, I'm leaning El Cortez, but it really depends on if the crowd there looks fun at the time. If they don't look like fun, then I'll hit Fremont one morning and hopefully have the table to myself...I've never liked the look of the crowd at that Craps table.

Fremont Street Experience properties mainly because all of my VP will either be at The D or Four Queens when I am not busy vulturing. I'll also wander over to El Cortez every now and then, again, maybe, to check out the Ultimate X machines. I'll definitely be trying to vulture those at Golden Nugget, so I'll be in Golden Nugget a few times a day, in and out.

They sure are. VP.com says three of them, but it seemed like there were more than that. I could have checked the same ones multiple times and thought they were different ones, though!

I know at least two were pretty close together, it's hard to explain where...I only went in there for Free Play, Match Play, $60 Poker Chips for $50 and stuff like that and the Ultimate X. There's an area in there where there are a bunch of columns to the left and that area is inclined, it could be a restaurant, two of them were right near that area, as I recall. My wife and I also ate at their buffet, which was really good, best Vegas buffet I've had so far in a sample size of two. (Main Street Station is the other)

I don't know why, I just found the layout of that place really confusing, so I'll probably still have to look for them all over again when I go back. The only casinos I'd say I know really well are The D, Golden Gate, Four Queens and Fremont. I know the Plaza kind of well, but not great.

FYI, if a guest at GN takes ill in the hotel and an ambulance is called, they wheel the victim out through the .... wait for it ... Kitchen. True Story. And the victim in this case was my mother-in-law who was losing things at both ends... ;-)

I could have been merrily ignorant of the slightly increased risk of food contamination, I was going to eat at that buffet again. :(

Just so you know the Fremont limits odds to 2X.
