Upcoming Appearance
We don't currently have anything planned, but if you happen to spot us out and about at the Vegas casinos, please stop and introduce yourself — we don't mind taking a rest from gambling to chat with old friends and make new ones.

Some of My Favorite Web Sites

1) — I am always being asked where the best video poker games are found. This free site lists where the most generous games can be found, and more.

2) — Hear one of those amazing stories that are passed around the Internet? Before you send it to hundreds of your closest friends, check it out here, where you can find out whether it is fact or urban legend.

3) — One of the best places to find free and/or inexpensive things to do in Vegas, with tons of information for frugal locals and visitors alike.

4) Mark's Las Vegas — This has unique coverage with information you might not readily find elsewhere, including a great "Players Club Comps and Tier Advancement Cheat Sheet" that shows how you can spend/buy your way way up to a higher tier in many casinos!

5) — From this website, you can subscribe for a free monthly newsletter and read former issues. Originally designed exclusively for Seven Stars cardholders, I find that there are plenty of new and valuable details in every newsletter for any player who is trying to squeeze more value from their play at a Caesars property.
