    Took the tour of Eataly in December. Saw that Eataly also hosts participative classes, wine tastings, etc.

    Any other casinos offer similar experiences? Can guests take a class on cooking, or a behind the scenes look at how the Bellagio Fountains work, how Wynn maintains the decor, how buffets run? Behind the scenes of a show?

    Visit frequently, usually solo, and good to have a backup activity for those times that call for a break from the tables..... that doesnt involve eating, drinking or regretting.

    There are three "curated experiences" (beer tasting, mixology, and lunch with the chefs of Giada) offered by CET: https://www.caesars.com/las-vegas/things-to-do/vegas-curated-tours

    On the higher end of the spectrum (though admittedly not as friendly to solo visitors) MLife also has an interesting lineup of experiences: https://www.mgmresorts.com/en/mlife-rewards-program/moments-experiences.html

    Wynn at one point recently also offered "masterclass" experiences for everything from pastry making, to wine tasting, to even odds-making at the sportsbook. Can't find this anymore though, but mentioning it anyway as something to stay on the lookout for.

    Additionally, for their Le Reve show, Wynn offers the equivalent of a "backstage" experience: https://www.wynnlasvegas.com/experiences/packages-and-pairings/divers-dream

    Better shown in video: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=167076400828823

    Following along, as I'm interested in hearing about more of these types of things myself :)

    I’ve been to the KA one. Very short but extremely informative. It show exactly the way that verticals stage works. I enjoyed it by myself.

    Appreciate all of the info

    Interesting about Wynn. Im a red card member and get room offers, but no other info.

    Staying at Cosmo next week. Unfortunately, while MilkBar, linked on Yelp, has fun-sounding events in other cities, not at the Cosmo location.

    you have to be on the lookout and go to the Wynn Website to catch when they are going to have them. In the past they have been much more frequent in the spring summer and fall, the busier periods. I have seen them advertise cake making with their master cake baker, seafood cooking courses, and other activities. Typically these will be shown on the website under the experiences tab if they have any scheduled.

    I know that Mon Ami Gabi at Paris has had cooking classes in the past, but I don't see anything listed on their website currently.

    I'd keep an eye on Eater Vegas - they periodically do a round up of "food" events that include one-off dinners, classes, festivals, etc. I've seen some good things come through that, but it's pretty hit or miss.
