Vegas Fanboy by Travel Fanboy - 1w ago

When the Fanwife turned me down an obscure back alley in Detroit, I thought the next time you all would hear about me would be on an episode of Dateline. Instead, she was guiding me to one of the best cocktail experiences I’ve ever had. There is no frontage to Bad Luck Bar. In the […]

Travel bloggers are an interesting bunch. Admirably, their goal is to spend as little of their own money as possible for five-star experiences. They’ll hack their way to elite status and free nights at opulent resorts, getting there by spending points they manufactured on luxurious first-class appointments that would have normally cost thousands.

As an intrepid travel blogger, it is my obligation to extol the virtues of airport lounge access, especially the revered escapes that are the American Express Centurion Lounges. Accordingly, behold the Centurion Lounge at Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport: I was granted admission not because of my overwhelming fame, but for carrying an overpriced metal card. Two […]

My only complaint about the Delano isn’t something anyone can control at this point. It’s just too far from the center of the action. The entire Mandalay Bay complex is an absolute gem, equipped with top of the line amenities and some of the best restaurants in town. If it were more appropriately located, the […]

This was a fantastic trip for me as I got to see plenty of old friends and meet some longtime supporters and podcasting peers. Let’s just jump right in. Friday TSA Pre-check saved me as I was unusually aloof in my planning. With the Zorkfest circumstances, I packed more than usual, needing to ultimately check […]

The Plaza is a decades-old hotel parked at the west end of the Fremont Street Experience, an attraction that very much impedes the view of the casino and main tower. I made mention of my recent stay on Twitter and, without request, was upgraded to a mini suite. I say this because I only paid […]

The business card has similar features, but different bonuses and spend requirments.  The American Express Platinum Credit Card offers a lot of benefits, a sizable introductory bonus, and bumps to elite status with select loyalty programs. However, […]

Just off the casino floor of Downtown Grand sits the unassuming Freedom Beat. I’ve stayed and gambled at DTG several times but never gave Freedom Beat much of a thought. I’ve been missing out. The menu, a mix of American classics, was created by Hell’s Kitchen Season 12 winner, Scott Commings. My brother and I […]
