    Long time reader, first time poster. Looking for some help planning a surprise for the husband's birthday! We will be taking our seventh trip to Vegas later this month and our first full day in Vegas will be my husband's birthday. I have dinner plans arranged for us but I was trying to come up with something fun for us to do during the day. Typically we're get up mid-morning, eat, gamble, drink, eat, gamble, drink kind of people... we see the odd show, but mostly we head to Vegas for gambling, drinking and relaxing.

    Any ideas for a fun birthday activity for during the day before dinner? I was trying to come up with something that would get us into different casinos or would involve drinks at some new places but I'm drawing blank. We're not really into the touristy Vegas stuff - been there, done that on our first few trips. Just looking for something that will make that day just a little more fun and 'special' than the others.

    Our home base is Caesars for this trip and dinner will be at the Palms later that evening.

    Help?

    My husband and I spent an afternoon one time at one of the quieter bars inside Bellagio. It was slow, so the bartender was really nice and spent some time with us explaining and letting us taste various Scotches. It was romantic and different and didn't end up costing us a lot because we just shared sips of them, although we tipped the bartender very generously for his time and kindness. It was impromtu, but really enjoyable. I would think, during the day, you could do this at some of the nicer casino bars at the higher end properties.

    Let me give you advice based on myself...because I'm an eat, gamble, drink, gamble, drink, eat, gamble, drink guy too.

    First, the previous suggestion of a scotch tasting is amazing, if you could pull it off.

    Second, if my wife was planning for me, I wouldn't want her to overdo it and get me off of what I really enjoy...eating, drinking, and gambling. So I'd look for maybe something special along those lines. A lunch somewhere that's beyond what we'd normally do, for example. Or a higher end kind of beverage thing.

    I don't know what you do for gambling, or at what level...but something special along those lines. Try a high limit room if you're close to that level, but haven't done it (go to a lower end property for $100 limits, if that's in your budget.) Take a wild shot at a slot machine that's two levels above your normal level of play, if the machines are your thing. Take $300 and play it through on a $10 slot machine together.
