Wow, get ready for a great time! both times i went it didn't see any shows or anything but mostly just hit the casino's, clubs and the hotel pools.

I would recommend buying a book called "Frommers, vegas" and read up on all the stuff you can do, it saves you a lot of money and time when planning.
I would try to at least look at some of the hotels, you won't believe the money that is put into these places.

have fun.

Play nickel slots at some cheap casino until you're nice and liquored and then venture out on the strip. As long as you are gambling (nickel slots included) the drinks are free You win about every fifth pull, break even on every twentieth pull. Order those drinks two at a time, and keep 'em coming. You'll be drinking for free all night long.

Buffet at the Bellagio. Lunch or Dinner (lunch is cheaper). Get there early, though-- the line can get long. It's the best buffet on the planet-- Last month I was there they had ging crab legs, lobster, three kinds of mussels, a huge sushi buffet....oh man. It's great.

If you're the clubbing type.. check out Ice Las Vegas. I do some work for them and it's a great set up.

Depending on the hotel you are going to stay at, slip the guy a 50 spot and ask if they have an upgrade. We were just there last week at Bally's and it worked.

My advice to you is to stay away from the palomino club.
It totally sucks!

For those of you who do not know what this place is,,,, It's the only strip joint that has full nudity, while being able to serve booze.

Hard Rock

Unless you're a hard core gambler, you should spend the days at the pool at the Hard Rock (they're near the newer properties by the airport). The unique thing about that place is that they have an awesome pool and they let strippers hang out there for no charge and no hassle.

Used to be that they would hand out a different color towel for these chicks versus the guests.

The only problem is that it might be a bit cool for real activity.

Take lots of pictures and post them when you get back

Enjoy!

You need a wristband to get to the pool area at the Hard Rock. It is the best place to be during the day!

I'd recommend eating at one of the good restaurants one night. We ate at Delmonico's in the Venetian and it was easily one of the best steaks I've ever had.

Other than that, uh.. play cards early evening and drink, then hit the clubs. Rain and Ghost Bar in the Palms are both awesome, but you'll have a long ass line if you don't get there relatively early.

Get dinner at Rum Jungle in Madalay Bay then stay till it turns into a club later. Rain and Ghost are super crowded and don't bother going there at 1am since you won't get in until they are about to close. Be prepared to give the guy at the taxi stand a $20 to get you a cab before the other 500 people at the end of the night.

The Olympic Garden doesn't have full nudity and booze?? I remember I think the chicks are full nudity. I also remember drinking. And upstairs.. they have male strippers... unfortunately.. not full nudity....

We (wife and I) rented a Harley (full bagger with radio) and drove to the Hoover Damn, drove to Red Rock, and some other places. We put a few hundred miles on and loved it.

OG is not full nudity, they have to keep their thongs on. The women sometimes look around before they do something they shouldn't though! They don't want to get busted by the boss. I spent $160 there in about an hour. That was because I only had $160 with me! Great looking women and many to choose from.

That Hunting Bambi thing where you hunt naked chicks with paintball guns was a publicity stunt. They were just trying to sell videos. There is no such thing. Sorry.

I cant wait till i get the opportunity to get to vegas. Never been

I tell everybody who is planning a trip to Vegas that I want a souvenier from one of the brothels (a hat, t-shirt, etc.) I bet I've asked 20 people and still got nothing. So are YOU too cheap to go (or just ashamed to admit paying for it)

If I had gone to Vegas when I was single I think I would have to have gone. It is as much "Vegas" as gambling.

My wife thinks we're a bunch of Top Gun wannabes with our call signs, so for future reference, I'm Roger
