Great list of things! I could help you out with #78. I'm going there at the end of Sept. My husband and I are going to the Frozen Fury (La Kings vs Colorado Avs) game at the MGM Grand. We are planning to stay for 2 nights which means I will have free time. He'll be playing alot of poker, and I don't gamble.

My friend Becca (aka digitalgoobie.blogspot.com) is doing the 101 in 1001 days list too. I like your #9. Better start the seeds now!
