Planning a Trip to Las Vegas

I was tweeting with DenverGambler before his latest trip to Las Vegas and he talked about a “To-Do List” that he was making for the trip.  I’m a curious guy so I asked to see it.

My trip plans focus around dinners or drinks and I only make mental notes or firm dinner plans which I keep on my iPhone calendar.  My plans are never as major as this list.

Food
Batistas
Stripburger
BLT Burger
Hard Rock – $7.77 Steak and Shrimp off-menu special at Mr Luckys.
Ellis Island – Cheap Steak dinner

Drinking
Riviera – New English Pub
Wynncore – Sinatra Smash, Asian Equation?
Peppermill (Bar side)
Double Down Saloon (near Hard Rock) – Bacon Martini
Dino’s Lounge

Gambling / Casino Scoping
Fremont Street (ride the deuce?) – El Cortez, Western, $1 Craps!, Griffin Bar, Binions, Vegas Club / Golden Gate / Plaza, Gold Spike, Main St Station
Stratosphere gambling
Las Vegas Hilton
Tropicana
Wild Wild West?
MGM Grand – Lions Share & Sigma Derby
Sahara – Play dollar blackjack and drink Newcastles till I lose $40 or until I am too damn incoherent to play at Sahara, Slot tournament – Saturday 11:00am, DOUBLE rewards points on Mondays and Fridays

Other
7 pound burrito challenge
Pinball hall of fame

Curious to see what he was able to accomplish?  I was.  See below for crossed off version of the list.

It’s pretty damn impressive to knock off over 2/3rds of your to-do list on a vacation with so many items on the list.  I don’t normally have more than 2 or 3 items for day.  DenverGambler had about 10 per day.  How do you plan your trips?
