goto the MGM Grand, follow the signs for the Tram, which leads you right past the main entrance hall. The signs lead you down an escalator, right when you get down the escalator look to the right you'll see a Fat Tuesday's. Buy a 190 Octane in this size:

You Can't Go Wrong!!!

 

Other wise the hoover damn is a nice trip. How many days are you there?

My favorite thing we did in Vegas was to hit the Blue Man Group show at Luxor. I actually liked it better than the highly-acclaimed "O" show at Bellaggio, although both were excellent.

 

On the free side, please PLEASE make time to watch the fountains at Bellaggio. I think they run every 15 minutes; try to catch a few of the "shows"...truly incredible stuff for a great price. :) If you can see a daytime and a nighttime showing, so much the better.

 

Have fun!

Indeed. The show they have set to Con Te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman is a stunner...

You could spend and hour or two just watching those fountains. Acutally if you head into the bellaggio on the casino level there is a lounge where you can grab a drink and a bite to eat overlooking the fountains. Its a little pricy($18 for 2 chocolate covered Strawberries) but well worth it IMO, they have a great shrimp coctail. The whole front of the Bellaggio is just the coolest thing about Vegas.

 

Skip the new treasure island show though. What they did to that stinks. The old pirate show was much better.

I'm going to be staying at the Mandelay Bay from October 8th to the 13th. It's a geek conference so I'm sure they'll be hitting the strip clubs in abundance.

 

After watching Ocean's Eleven as many times as I have, I will have to head to Bellagio to check out the fountains.

 

I'm planning on dropping a few bucks at a sportsbook as I've never had a chance to legally bet on a sporting event, and something inside me is just screaming to bet the over/under on how many first downs a team will have in the first quarter. :)

you'll enjoy the hoover dam..I was there last year and the size of the thing is just insane, we went on a tour and they take you right into the belly of it..they show you the door Chevy chase opens to end up on the outside of the dam in Vegas Vacation, our tour guide opened the thing up to reveal a nice storage closet..;)

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll be going out there on by my lonesome' date=' so I'll have plenty of time to kill. Of course my DS and PSP will be with me as well, but I would like to see some of the city.

Honestly, and hopefully, the only time you'll need the DS and PSP is on the plane. There is just way to much to see and do out there. I go about once a year, and each time is a blast. I stayed and got married at Mandalay Bay last year, that place is great, with a good buffet. But the most important thing about Mandalay Bay is the sports book. You could spend all day in there, its the best one in Vegas, find it!!!!:tu

Have fun and I'm extremely jealous.

Hit up the Bellagio buffet atleast once.

New York New York has a Krispy Kreme if you are in the mood.

There's an arcade just down the street from the MGM Grand. It's next to the M&M museam. Both are pretty neat exhibits.

Rio's buffet and party is pretty neat. It's the closest thing to Mardi Gras.

Honestly, and hopefully, the only time you'll need the DS and PSP is on the plane

Maybe he is using them to repel the women.

The breakfast buffet at Paris is unbelievable as well. We had heard that it was good and our expectations were high, but when we actually sat down and starting eating we were STILL blown away. It's been 4 years and Tracey still talks about the cream puffs there. Plus, we got lucky with the timing and got in for the last half-hour of breakfast; paid the breakfast price but by the time we were finished eating they were setting up lunch dishes, so we lollygagged a bit and grabbed lunch too. :tu

If you find yourself in the Downtown area and want a bite to eat, I highly recommend the Main Street Station buffet. Awesome, Awesome buffet for the price, and the best Downtown.

 

Gambling odds are supposed to be better downtown, so you can get some good gambling in and some cheap food :D The strip buffets are good but expensive. We liked the Flamingo's buffet both times we were there, and it was pretty reasonable for Dinner pricing. Their Tiramisu rocks!

Check out the Hard Rock Hotel Casino, lots of really great rock and roll memorabillia. There's definately better odds downtown, but it's a different crowd then you'll get on the strip. Good for some, not so good for others. If they still have it the Sig & Roy experience at TI is not too bad.

 

I personally think a trip up to the top of the stratosphere is worth it especially if it's your first time in Las Vegas. Be sure to stop by the Flamingo and pay homage to 'Bugsy' the man with the dream that started it all. They have a small statue of him out back. If you happen to go to one of the strip clubs or PF Changs and see a devestatingly beautiful 6 foot tall rail thin blonde named Christina, tell my ex that she's still a bitch. :)

 

Oh and if you manage to meet a nice girl, rent a scooter and drive out to red rock canyon just west of town, it's a great little romantic trip, not too hard to find and definately memorable. Bring a lunch and picnic out on some of the rocks.

 

There's tons to do in Vegas, but it all depends on your budget and your tolerance level for debauchery. Ra was a hot club last time I was there, but that was last year. It may have changed.

 

Good Luck! I'll probably be there myself near the end of this month.
