Wait a minute....where am I?

......and then Marlene awoke from the dream.

The Forum shops are just the most beautiful shopping area ever, you can't afford anything but it is beautiful. Per square foot it makes more money than any other shopping center in the world.

We like to go up to the mezzanine and pitch pennies into the huge pool below. No really, it's totally acceptable.

Marlene found some friends, they were stuffed shirts.

That watch....well need I say more?

Broadway shows are the thing at the big hotels on the strip. They get big stars to rotate through the shows. See the Producers if you can it is roll in the aisle funny.

The bad part about these shows and what they don't want you to know is, they have shortened them to 90 minutes with no intermission. They also charge Broadway prices or more. They shortened the shows because surveys showed that tourists didn't want to sit in a show for more than 90 minutes.

I finally get to Pure and Paris gets locked up and couldn't make it.

This is Bobby Flay's restaurant right inside the front of Ceasar's.

Sounds like fun.

Here is one our favorite places to eat. Normally I would give it an unconditional two thumbs up but we had a kinda flakey waitress and they blew it with our food. This still is the best complete steak dinner you can get for 5 dollars. It's not on the menu, just ask for the special. This place is behind Bally's on Flamingo and Koval.

It's the home of the three tyned forks. It really is a great place to eat.

Another of our favorites is Victorys in the Cannery. This place is out on Craig Rd. near the speedway about 5 miles north of downtown. Great food.

I want to say a few words about buffets. We like to go to buffets, not because we eat a lot and like to pack in those last few calories, but because they used to be cheap and we like the variety. We have eaten at about 23 different buffets in LV. Good food and low price is not always the case nowadays. Take this one located in the Gold Coast across from the Rio. It used to be one of our favorites and we would eat there many times during a trip. The food was always great and the price was right. We went there for our first breakfast and they had eliminated half of the selections and the rest wasn't that great. Took it off the list.

This buffet and the next one are definately the best two left that are resonably priced. This one is at Sunset Station in Henderson. We've eaten and stayed there many times. Still very good.

This one is at the Orleans on Tropicana. The food is still very good and we've eaten and stayed here also many times. The other buffet that I know is great is at the Golden Nugget downtown. Almost gormet food although it is slightly higher priced. There are so many more places to eat and try. Some that we used to drive way out of the way just for their breakfasts aren't worth going to anymore.

really informative blog, have you thought about writing a tour-guide? Next time I go to LV I will follow your recommendations.

Glad to get the "Warnin- Buffett" (to self: billionaire reference too obscure? Nah, put it anyway.) Shame about Bourbon St. Is the Sahara still worthwhile?
I took almost the exact picture you did, of the forks, last week at a Thai Place, it was a knife and spoon, but the same idea. Bruce minds...

Quite clever, almost slipped past me. Bourban St. is torn down. Barbary Coast is now something else. Haven't eaten at the Sahara for many years and there is a reason for that. Midget
