I have a trip planned for March. Well enough in advance so that I can save plenty of $$.
This will be my 4th time going so I’m pretty well familiarized with the strip.
I’d like some suggestions on comps/money saving tips. Also good restaurants since we would like to do a nice dinner each night.
Lots of good steakhouses but what’s your favorite and why?
The last few times I went I was cheap on food.
I have an MLife account and will be staying in a comp room.
Using MyVEGAS app to get discounts on food/drinks.
Best time to book the flight through Southwest? Seems that their fares don’t change much.

If you book a Southwest flight and the price goes down before your trip, call them and they will issue you a credit. I’ve done it 3 times.

The best steakhouse in Vegas (NI9E Steakhouse) closed a couple of years ago.
There is a new steakhouse (Scotch 80) where NI9E once was (at The Palms). It’s very good and has a nice whisky angle.

The best pizza in Vegas is called Secret Pizza. It’s at Cosmopolitan. Cosmopolitan also has an incredible breakfast place (Eggslut). Be prepared to wait in line for 15-20 minutes at both places.

Believe it or not, there is a great steakhouse at Circus Circus of all places. It’s been there for many years. It’s appropriately named “The Steakhouse”. It has a charming, old school feel. It’s worth the walk through the Circus Circus casino.

Have fun. We have a yearly guys trip to Vegas every May.

Thanks. You’re the second person to recommend The Steakhouse. Will have to check it out.
One of the people going is a breakfast connoisseur so they’ll appreciate the Eggslut lol.

Going to a wedding in Seattle Sept 9-11. I have to stop in Vegas on the way there and on the way back so I decided to stay in Vegas for 30 hours on the way home.

Booked one night at Aria on Sept 12th.

30 hours solo in Vegas. Let’s go!
