Has anyone ever been to Vegas?

I'm thinking of taking a trip there. Any info, advice or stories you can share would be much appreciated. So far all I've got on the to-do-list is "don't get so drunk that you end up marrying a hooker."

Sorry, what happens in Vegas.

Stays in Vegas.

Yes.

Stayed at The Signature at MGM Grand. Very nice place.

All I can say is, if you go in summer, it's hot as hell. But then again, you'll be out at night mostly. The strip is very long, but you have to walk it. Check out numerous casinos. There is good food to be found. Great night life. And ... be okay with the fact that you WILL lose money.

It's basically just fun. You really don't need to know much more than that. Go. The fun will be everywhere. You don't need a list of things to do. And again, you will lose money.

Another luxury of living in LA. A trip to Vegas with the boys is only a 6 hour 90 MPH drive through the desert.

And like KG said, what happens on Vegas stays in Vegas.

I'm out there 5 or 6 times a year. I know all the good places to poop. A good place to preparty is Carnival Court next to Harrah's. Outdoor bar with live music. Then hit the casinos. Obviously with my married-man lack of swag I don't do the club scene anymore so I can't help you there.

Lots of times. Played in the WSOP last year which was the last time I went.

One fun thing to do is hit the pool with your boys - get a Cabana and suck down a few beers while oogling ladies. May sound dumb but if you go to one on the popular day it's a blast. It's not my first choice of things to do but if you are like me you need to get out of the hotel just to stop gambling.

Go to a show. If you are betting enough you can even get comped. My favorite show is O.

Go shoot some machine guns

IF you have cash take a helicopter to the Grand Canyon

Oh and if you need anything (and I mean anything) call the concierge not the front desk. Usually he can get you what you need.

Oh and go eat. There are so many fun restuarants from 5 star to rediculous all you can eat buffets.

And another thing. Head downtown and play $1 craps at the Golden nugget then watch the outdoor laser/music show. Get a fried twinkie.

Just stand at the tables for awhile and watch. You will see these "ego" gamblers walk up and drop $1200 dollars and in ten minutes, be broke. They will walk to the next table and do the same thing. I have always been amazed that when in Vegas, your normal senses do not work, in fact, they become disconnected altogether.

It should be, "the money you take to Vegas, stays in Vegas"

I was at the Rio last year during WSOP.
