Hey guys, new to the boards and not entirely sure where this post fits since it involves a lot of different items (food, lodging, nightlife, etc.) but I could really use your help figuring out if I am on the right track as far as our Vegas plans go. A little bit about myself. I am a 30 year old male traveling with my 26 year old wife. She and I went to Vegas a few years ago and had a pretty awful time. She had just come off an exhausing quarter at school and the chaos and craziness of the place really overwhellmed her, which in turn overwhellmed me. We didn't have a good plan that time and we ended up just feeling totally out of our element. No shows, no nice dinners, just a couple of Fat Tuesday's yards, a bad hangover, and a lot of getting lost. Fast forward about 4 years and I have been back twice with a few guy friends and have had a great time. For some reason the yards and getting lost isn't half as stressful when you are with your buddies ...but I digress. This time I am taking my lovely wife back to Vegas and I want to give her a great experience. The glitz, the glamour--everything Vegas has to offer a couple such as us. So, here is my agenda so far and I could really use some help tweaking, confirming, critiquing, etc. in order to make sure I am doing what I need to be doing to ensure we have a fun time. Thanks for any help you guys can provide! Dates: August 9-11 Hotel: Vdara Lake View Room (I just feel like we need a home base that isn't near a casino or the chaos of the strip--yet still within walking distance) Friday: Plane arrives early in the morning in California (we are also doing a week in Cali after Vegas). We are driving over and plan on taking a nap in the afternoon after checking in. Not sure what to do or where to eat after that, but we are doing the Rockstar Club Crawl that night as we had a Groupon and it seemed like a good way to experience the Vegas club scene without having to wait in all the lines or worry about transportation. There is an open bar on the party bus as well. This is our crazy night of debauchery. I just need to figure out where to do dinner before hand. We would like something more casual and fun (party atmosphere) as the next couple nights are a bit more formal. The clubs on the agenda are apparently Revolution at Mirage, 1Oak at Mirage, Chateau at Paris, and Pure at Caesars (any experience with these??). Not sure what to expect. Neither of us have ever clubbed and we are kinda excited to try it out for the first time in Vegas (my life does love to dance and dress to impress, I should add--me, it's Vegas and I am up for pushing myself outside of my comfort zone a bit). Saturday: Sleep in. Wake up late and hang out at the pool using the $50 pool credit we got when we booked our room. That evening we were thinking of going to either Craftsteak and Ka or Sinatra and Le Reve (need advice on this one). Le Reve is more expensive currently but I like the idea of going to Wynn more than I do MGM (just looks far more beautiful). We'd also like to have a drink at Parasol Down after the show (show's at 7:00) and watch the Lake of Dreams show (is Parasol Down gonna be insanely packed after the show lets out!? Any advice on getting a table?). Sunday: We'd like to do a spa treatment (a massage) and I'm trying to decide between Qua at Caesars or something closer like the Bellagio, Vdara, or Aria. I would like a place where we could burn at least 3 hours. Might do some shopping that afternoon as well. Not sure where to go though (forum shops, Crystals?). That evening we have reservations at Prime a few minutes before sundown and I have requested a table outside overlooking the fountains (second choice was next to a window). And that's pretty much it for now! Sorry if this seems super anal, but I'm guessing there are a few other people on here who can relate to the compulsive need to plan. And I'm fine changing plans last minute. I just want to have some good ideas going in So, where am I on/off? What am I not considering? Or what else should I be looking at for dinners, shows, or experiences? Thanks guys!
