Although I no longer reside there. Vegas has the rooms ,distractions and cool 24 hr gyms. Dan John is a short ride away in UT. CA is a short ride away to (LA and San Diego that is)
Texas while the steak and woman are fine is a suck pit. There is a reason you can by a decent house for 110K it's because no one wants to live there. One suggestion if you do have Test Fest TX, put it on S. Padre Island. From personal experience I also believe that TX has more anti Semitism and racism than many more popular sections of the country.
Just my 2 cents (I am saving my real cash for the tables in Vegas.
