    Did a lot of non-vegas related travelling over the past two years and had me a beautiful baby girl (well, my wife did, but I watched!).

    I'm headed back to vegas for the superbowl (for a bachelor party) and looking to find out what's changed over the past two years that I should know about? Things I should check out?

    I've missed these boards but hopefully I can get a trip in 2-3 times a year or so.

    Welcome back & congrats on the birth of your daughter! Well.....2 years offers a lot of changes....not sure what you are interested in but several new casinos/restaurants and updates to many more. Was there a "resort fee" 2 years ago???? Not sure when that started....most properties have them. May want to post questions or read info on here to help you catch up..... Good luck & have a great time on your trip!!!

    Yeah, the resort fee was still there... bastards.

    I'll clarify what I'm asking though. I know Vegas very well, so I don't want to start with "what's a good restaurant?", or "where should I gamble?" because I was hitting up vegas 4 times a year for many years. So maybe I'll rephrase:

    1. Any NEW restaurants with amazing views I should check out? (and how's the food?)
    2. What are the best 'tier 2' nightclubs where I can probably get deals on bottle service?
    3. Any changes to the strip club scene I should be aware of? (this is a bachelor party)
    4. Are the limits to get noticed in Vegas going up? What would I need to bet / hand these days to get RFB?
    5. Veeegggassss!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    Good to see you man.

    I took a break for about the same timeframe.

    But Vegas really hasn't changed much.

    Not a whole lot new worth checking out.

    Not even the club scene has changed a ton.

    Couple new clubs but that's about it.

    Pretty much will be the same you remember.

    Tell your wife congrats from us.

    Well, at the Cromwell there is a new restaurant (Giada's) that has a great view and awesome food and also Drais day/night club (never been there so can't comment on that though)!

    Drai's nightclub is unreal, it's on par with Marquee as one of my favourites. Never done the dayclub thing, so I can't help you there
