I'll be heading out to a conference in LA during early part of May. I'm thinking about heading over to Vegas late afternoon preconference, spend evening and overnight in Vegas, then fly back early am with a mid afternoon conference start time. My plan would be to catch something to eat upon arrival....probably mid strip, catch some sights (bellagio fountains, perhaps a cigar at casa Fuente) head downtown for a bit of people watching and gambling, then back to strip to gamble and perhaps breakfast at Peppermill. I'm not planning to get a room....just some red bulls and 5 hour energy drinks. Has anybody here done this and might you have some tips for me? Appreciate any and all input.
