Stayed at a newly revamped Golden Gate, Excalibur, and The Mirage..two of the nights were comped through MyVegas on Facebook.

Golden Gate looks excellent..DuPar's is a nice place with excellent, although somewhat expensive, pancakes..Plaza also looks much better than it did before.

Golden Gate rooms now have high def channels to go with the high def TVs..but putting the TVs on the dresser is a little strange, but there isn't much wall space to hang them..not a big deal

Excalibur was fine..I'd do it again..huge bathrooms, wacky casino, but it works better than I ever thought it might..

I love the Mirage..will likely make that my home base for as long as the place is around..

Played hours upon hours of video poker at El Cortez and the D..already getting buy one get one free offers but had my best gaming success at the Mirage playing DDB 5 play.

Becoming a bigger fan of Downtown Las Vegas with each stay..will likely stay there at least a full day on future trips.

As part of a ten person bachelor party contingent, made our way to Treasuers Strip Club for Dinner and Strippers..Private dance cost $100, plus booze, plus tips..put everything on my Southwest Airlines Chase card, so at least I got miles too :) Good times, has my recomendation.

Sampled Pop Up Pizza at the Plaza, very good, very fast; the Coney Island spot at the D, which has excellent stuff, well under $10, and Cravings at The Mirage; excellent beef tenderloin..

Had a winning trip with money wagered on VP and on the AFC and NFC Championship games, and was able to lay down a pair of Super Bowl bets before I called it a night at the Mirage..

Great post.

Dupars is expensive. In fact they just upped the prices at the ones in L.A.. I took my ape wife to eat there a few weeks ago after hearing her jibber jabber about pancakes for three hours straight one Saturday morning and she suddenly decided she wasn't hungry after peeping their new prices. Dude, they're charging like $13 bucks for a tuna melt.

Still great pancakes.

Excellent pancakes, but my favorite item on the menu is the corned beef hash.

 Chuckmonster replied on Thursday, 14th March 2013

Ditto. The hash is very beloved by the ape wife, even though she doesn't eat it.

Spend a few bucks on a cab and head to Omelet House at Charleston and Rancho. I've never had their pancakes but it might be my favorite breakfast place ever.

I will give DuPar's credit..they had my order out in something around 2 minutes..but they need to include more get a tiny amount.

Also liked the Chicken Pot Pie..but I miss the original diner, that had a great prime rib special..DuPar's isn't cheap..I will concur on that..
