      That last sentence reminded me of the movie, "What Happens in Vegas," lol. I have never been to vegas, but have the travel bug, and dream of being able to travel again, frequently. I have been to Biloxi, and lived in New Orleans for about six years. One thing casinos do know how to do is entertain and pour out lavish gifts. I have never been a gambler, but had some friends in Atlanta who were, and traveled to Biloxi almost every weekend when I lived in Atmore, Alabama. The food was free, as was the hotel, because my friends gambled so much. Also, the manager of one of the casinos liked me, so I got some special favors, even though I never spent any money of my own. No place for a diet, I can tell you that much! Great hub that took me back a few years in time. Would love to go back, or visit Las Vegas.

      I have always wanted to attend the Tournament of Kings. Everytime I have been to Vegas, I always wanted to make time, but end up flying back home without having the opportunity. The next time I plan to go to Vegas, I will make sure to reserve those tickets beforehand!

      Thunder Down Under doesn't sound too bad either ;D
