It is becoming increasingly difficult to live vicariously thru others...when none of the others are posting...come on people not everyone has a life so don't be so stingy and share more, and more often...thank you, thank you very much...

Just wanted to give a shout out to Frankie's and say mahalo for signing on again for Ohana 2010 in Lake George! Hope the Pugs can make it back east again as well.

Howdy. My company is sending me to Vegas for a conference at the end of February and the thing I'm most excited about is hitting Frankies. (Ever since the state bulldozed my beloved Honolulu, I have been adrift and searching for a good grog).

I have some dumb questions, so please bear with me:

Taxi: I'm going to be down near the convention center and figure a cab is the best thing to do if I plan on sampling the drinks. Any of the locals have any taxi companies to recommend to use / avoid?

Bus: Alternately, I can take the bus. What's the bus service like in LV?

Definitely take a taxi. It isn't that far from the convention center. You don't have a choice in what taxi company you are going to use. just which ever is next in line wherever you are.

I appreciate it the advice! It is close, so a cab should be quick. It's only 3 miles from my hotel so I could walk it easily, too, but figure it's not such a great idea to be an out of town conventioner stumbling home in an aloha shirt at 0 dark thirty.

FYI, I don't consider the area north of Sahara and south of Downtown a particularly safe area to be walking around by yourself after dark. There's a neighborhood in that area nicknamed the "Naked City" which is considered to have the highest crime rate in Las Vegas. It's just south of Charleston and west of the Strip. You wouldn't want to take a route through there.

Also be prepared to describe to the taxi driver where Frankie's is located. It's on Charleston just a few blocks west of the 15, on the north side of the street. Most taxi drivers that service the main tourist areas aren't familiar with Frankie's. I've even said "it's just east of the University Medical Center" and have had the taxi driver respond "where's that?".

They don't have happy hour specials. But if your're playing video poker, you drink for free. The gang shows up around 7:30ish, but none of us are really punctual.

Just came back from Frankies. OMFG. Beautiful place. I plan to hit it once a day while I'm in town. Thanks for the previous tips, everybody.

Countdown to Vegas has commenced!

Ms Swanky and I will be checking out Bamboo Ben's handiwork and that of the bartenders on March 31st! Will any of ye TCers be around? Looking forward to seeing my pufferfish lamps in situ.
