I know this isn't poker strategy, but I feel this might be the best place to get info. The trip is in March with a few poker friends. We will be in LA March 8th, 9th and 10th. Then drive to Vegas for a few days. (how long does this take?) Purpose of trip is poker and have fun. But we want to hit up the bike and commerce. I am going to try to play live at the bike on Friday.
Questions: 1. hotels: where should we stay and not stay? I would like to go under 150. Max 200. If I can 90-120 range. if that helps. I was looking I saw quality inn and suites montebello. good? We will rent a car so distance isn't that big of a deal, but I don't want to be too far out. So, the bike doesn't have hotels? how is commerce?
2. where would people recommend playing? one friend and I play 2-5 5-5 5-10 games and another friend 1-2 1-3 all nl holdem.
3. Places to go visit: bars, food, site seeing etc. We will be playing cards, but I do want to see the city. We might be going to a lakers game. not sure.
thanks for the advice.
