My husband and I have been promising our great nephew for over a year that when he turned 21 we'd take him to Vegas for his first time. Well, Apr 3rd he turned 21 so true to our word we just booked a trip for mid May. We are also taking along our great niece (his cousin) who is turning 23 next week. The agreement we made is that since we are paying everything - airfare, room, meals and even a small daily gambling budget for each of them - we ask that they actually hang out with us for the most part, let us show them around and teach them how to gamble and basically "do" Vegas. They readily agreed to this and claim they WANT to hang out with us. We are sharing a room; they grew up frequently crashing in the same bed and said they are fine with it again, or worst case niece can sleep with me and nephew with husband. We were considering getting them their own room but both Moms said they'd feel better knowing that we'd know when they are in safe for the night, so fine. All that being said, we are not unreasonable people and understand that young adults their age want to see some of what Vegas has to offer for them. So we'd like to have them be able to do something age appropriate, plus it will give us some time to hang at the bar playing hours of VP like the degens that we really are. We get in late on a Friday night, I'm thinking of reserving limo service as a surprise. Checking into Bally's Jubilee Tower Two Queen room. Since we won't even check in til around midnight (2AM and 3AM local times for us), we'll probably just have some drinks, maybe do a short strip stroll so they can see the crowds and lights and all that, and then crash. Saturday we'll walk one direction of the strip, visiting each property, gambling a little, etc. Saturday evening we're going to have dinner at MB and then take them up to Mix for cocktails with a killer view. Sunday is when I'm thinking of sending them off on their own, and it occurred to me a day club/pool party might be right up their alley. Now, I'd rather eat bees than go to one myself, but I bet they'd love it. So my first question (finally!!): What needs to happen for them to get in? My niece is very attractive and petite and no doubt could get on the guest list anywhere without blinking, but she will have her 6'2" defensive lineman cousin with her. Also a good looking kid, but we know the clubs aren't looking for dudes. What kind of cost would we be looking at, and would it need to be booked in advance? If a promoter approaches her to offer passes (last time we brought cute 20 something girls it happened a LOT) can she ask if she can bring him? Worst case they can certainly hang out at the pool all day at Bally's but it will hardly be a party scene, I know. Any other suggestions of things we can send them off to do on their own? And before anyone says "For god sakes they are adults let them run wild the whole time" etc etc, they can do that all they want when they pay their way to Vegas. This trip is about us spending time with them in one of our favorite places (they mostly grew up away from where we live so we've not had tons of together time over the years), and showing them the ropes.
