Las Vegas!

Las Vegas is a city that I would say 50% of Americans love, and 50% hate (sourced via theonion.com)

Regardless of this statistic, we can all agree that Vegas contains many flashing lights, and Celine Dion. Also it probably contains a lot of crime, a-la the movie Casino.

Anyways, I am going to Vegas in 3 weeks. I am looking forward to the Bellagio:

as well as the crushing shame of losing the yearly salary of a member of the country Chad. I'd like to hear some Vegas suggestions, as well as stories recounting SarahStilleto and iplaybass. Pouring a beer out for my homies here.

    My best to not commit suicide includes:

    1.) Don't make that noose!
    2.) Oh god why did I buy this rope.
    3.) Seriously, I need to learn how to tie knots, why not start with a noose!
    4.) That chair seems pretty wobbly.
    5.) Ok time to gamble all my cash away!

    Am I prepared for Vegas?

    Had to go through the Vegas airport once and the whole concourse was filled with smoke and people sleeping on the floor, wedged up against every wall, signpost, slot machine, etc. Felt like a homeless village.

    Got back from Vegas a couple of days ago, had a great time. Things to do include

    Gamble
    Drink
    Walk through all the casinos, lots to see and do in all of them - rollercoasters, rides, animals etc
    Gamble
    Freemont St - where the action was before the strip became the big thing
    Hoover Dam - half an hour drive from the strip. Just don't drive down there on a Sunday due to traffic
    Grand Canyon - fly over it if you are short on time. Walk along it or even inside it if you have the time (seriously, make the time. This thing is amazing)
    Drink
    Lots of clubs
    Lots of free shows in or around casinos. The Bellagio has a big fountain show outside it several times a night thats worth checking out. Treasure Island has a pirate show outside it several times a night too. The Rio has a show on the ceiling of the main casino floor on a regular basis. There's probably more shows too that I haven't seen
    Gamble & Drink

    It's probably not the type of place you'd want to vacation at lots unless you are serious about your gambling, but for the first time you are gonna have a total blast

    Seconding Penn & Teller, also you should definitely see a Cirque du Soleil show while you're there, do they still have the R-rated one? I'm still pissed that I didn't get to see that one when we went last year.

    The shark reef at Mandalay Bay is ok if you really dig on fish.

    Thomas Keller has a restaurant there, The French Laundry. There is also a Delmonico's there if you feel like having a ridiculously priced, but ridiculously good steak dinner.

    Blue Man Group is at Luxor, though, if you've ever seen them, and I mean ever, you've seen the show. They haven't updated that shit in 10 years.

    The strip clubs are some of the best and most expensive, but hey, if 150 dollar lap dances are your thing, worth it.

    If you like to rent fine automobiles and drive stupid fast on flat desert roads, yeah. you can do that. you can rent stupid fast cars.

    If you like guns, The Gun Store will let you rent out full-auto rifles and subs on their range. Pretty fun really.

    The shopping at Ceasers is amazing and always worth a trip.

    You must, and I do mean, YOU MUST have the breakfast/brunch buffet at The Paris. It is balls-on-my-chin amazing.

    Get a hotdog and a giant beer at O'Sheas and play nickel slots. It's an experience.

    Get a 36" tall margarita and stumble around the strip. This is State Law, everyone must buy one.

    Oh yeah, we went to The Gun Store while we were there, fired off some pistols and automatic rifles, that was fun as hell. I'm pretty sure that was the place we went to anyway.

    Last time I was in Vegas with my wife we found out she was preggo. Oh well at least I got to drink for two.

    Fremont street was an excellent place to wander around at night, there was a neat lightshow on the roof and some bands playing on free stages on the street.

    The stratosphere has a nice view if you like being above everything.

    You can pet the stingrays in the mandalay bay shark reef.

    If you are not driving be sure to get a multiple day pass for the busses to save a headache.

    It was more she was feeling sick and I suggested she was knocked up as a joke but hahaha the joke was on me when the pee stick turned blue. We didn't confirm it until we got back to Canada so that we could pretend it might have been a false positive.

    Bahahaha, what? Really.

    I was born and raised in Las Vegas.

    Go to "The Gun Shop" shoot off fully automatic weapons. It's fun.
    There are no brothels in Las Vegas, because it's illegal in Clark County. If that's something you're interested in you're going to have to go to a different county.
    Don't go to Fremont St, it's tacky, the casinos are old and crappy, and it's not fun. And you're more likely to get jumped than have a good time there. For that matter, don't go down sidestreets unless there's lots of people.
    Don't buy any of those giant margaritas, they're horribly expensive. Buy some booze at a store off the strip.
    Don't gamble at the big casinos unless you have lots to spend, nearly all of them have way higher minimums than the smaller casinos off the strip.
    If you want to go clubbing, see if there are people in your hotel giving out bracelets or something to the hotel's dance club that night.
    Go to the Ghost Bar at the Palms, if only for the view.
    If you go to a strip club, don't go to the ridiculous high end ones, they're not that great.
    If you're going to see a Cirque show, see "O". If no Cirque, then go see Penn and Teller.
    The buffet at the Rio is good.
    If you want cheap drinks in the casino, go to a penny slot machine and put a dollar in. Sit there for a while then when the drink girl comes around order whatever, then tip her a couple bucks. Much cheaper than buying it at the bar.
    Say hi to my mom and brother.

    When I googled Vegas Hobo Tunnels, this thread was the first thing that popped up.

    But yea, you can pretty much have an excellent time just wandering through the casinos and walking up and down the strip. The only place on the strip I didnt care for was Circus Circus. It just seemed...really dirty and trashy to me.

    The Excalibur has a neat dinner/tournament where you get to eat a whole bird(cornish game hen I think) without utensils while some actors joust/swordfight, that was fun.
