Travel Fanboy

Your Favorites – Sir William

Name: @toastcmu (or Sir William Trost IV for those who listen to 360 vegas)

Favorite hotel:

Bellagio – maybe because I stayed here first, but I always have loved the whole package here.

Favorite casino:

Golden Gate – found this place on my 2nd trip and always pay them a visit! The dealers are what make it here, I’ve never had an unpleasant experience.

Favorite restaurant:

Julian Serrano – the tapas and paella here are excellent – and the tables allow for people watching at the same time


Go to game:

Blackjack followed by Pai Gow tiles – Learned tiles from the wizard of odds himself!

Vegas cocktail of choice:

Scotch on the rocks – Chivas regal or Macallan when I can get it.

What is your favorite Vegas memory to date:

I have many, but to pick my best memory was hanging downtown on Fremont for the Brett Michaels concert as part of VIMFP – realizing there are many people who share our passion/addiction for this place which has something for everyone, in my opinion – whether it’s entertainment, gambling, food, or just touristy stuff.

Any tips for other Vegas fans?

While I am a planner when it comes to trips, the best kinds of trips are those in which plans get thrown to the side and you go explore something new! I would also remember to pace yourself as these trips are marathons, and not sprints, even for those short trips.

If you can rent a car, go to Valley of Fire state park, it’s well worth the drive!


Besides Vegas Fanboy, what other Vegas related media to you consume?

Five Hundy by Midnight, 360 vegas, You can Bet on That, Vegas Gang, Vegas tripping, UNLV gaming podcast with Dr. Dave Schwartz (quite a list, I know)
