I'm a single male in my mid 30s and I intend to travel to Vegas alone. I have some vacation time set aside and I'd like to spend a week in Vegas to get away from it all, especially my busy work schedule. What I'd like to do in Vegas is to: (1) play Texas Hold Em (small tournaments instead of high stakes table games) (2) enjoy some good buffet food (3) take in a good show or two (4) have some fun with women who are age appropriate for me and NOT professionals (5) try some stand-up comedy - are there any open mic nights on the Strip? I would like to stay at a nice hotel on the strip...any suggestions? I'm somewhat flexible in terms of when to take this trip - I could go anytime before the end of the year (late December 2013). When is the best time to go to Vegas and when are air+hotel package rates the cheapest?
