I've thought about this too, but it seems so watered down. Plus it's stupid expensive, and they won't let you drive your own car. The least expensive cars aren't any faster than my Golf.
Doughp, the cookie dough place in the Miracle Mile Shops!
Going in March. We're actually gonna spend some time on Fremont this time. We planned few hours to a day here.
And a dune buggie chase or ATV tour.
Fun thread! The recurring ones for me are...
Double Down Saloon... I don't know how I keep missing this place. At least five trips now.
UNLV Marjorie Barrick gallery... in my many attempts to visit Double Down, I have always paired visiting this gallery with it since they're within walking distance of one another. It always seems to have interesting exhibits going.
Classic Jewel cocktail lounge downtown. This I've put off for at least ten trips. Most mixology enthusiasts rave about this bar and I somehow keep screwing up going here.
Touring the Forum Shops. Literally my first time setting foot in them was when my iPhone broke last summer (thirteenth trip to Vegas) and I had to buy a new one there with it being the closest Apple Store to where I was staying. I spent about 15 minutes pacing about the section just off of the Forum casino at Caesars Palace on my last trip in December, but have not done a proper walk-through to see things like the spiral escalators. That, too will change!
Speakeasy bar at the Mob Museum. I heard about it after my first Vegas trip, which was just after I turned 21 in 2013. Kept telling myself I'd stop in for a drink. It will now be on my fifteenth trip this summer at the earliest.
Interestingly, it took me until my NINTH trip to get to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign.
I don't know what part of the UK you live in (I used to live in central Manchester, by the way)... but I know for a fact that Hippodrome and Grosvenor Victoria in London have craps. A bit further east in Westcliff, it seems Genting Club has a £2 craps table Fri-Sun.
Hopefully I will Finally see the welcome to Las Vegas sign... April will be my 8th trip.
Peppermill for me! It is always on my list and have just never found time to wonder that far down. If I take an Uber I want to go downtown and once downtown well you know the rest...
Easy approach to get it done effortlessly IMO would be to get your rideshare from the airport to stop there on the way to your hotel. Might cost about $10 extra on top of the regular fare, but way more convenient and saves the trouble of getting there by other means (and having to go back... there's not much to do down that way).
Ellis Island and getting a pool cabana for a day.
I forgot that one. I'm heading for trip 14, and not seen either of them
I meant to check it out last trip but ran out of time.
Play poker at Bellagio or Aria
In no particular order...
Dim Sum at Ping Pang Pong
I know there are others.
The big thing on our "to try" list is brunch at Border Grill/Mandalay Bay. Unlimited weekend brunch tapas and amazing reviews?
This trip will be Cosmo/Aria though, so it looks like Border Grill will have another raincheck. (I'm a camper in Vegas.)
I DO want to try it though, it looks amazing!
Also want to try Ocean One Bar and Grill in Miracle mile for the 4.99 entree HH. Border Grille is for quality, Oceans is just because I HAVE to try a solid menu with that good of a deal in Vegas!
Next trip knocking two off my list:
1. Vegas Beer Festival (Beer Zombies), same day as my first Leap Year Day in Vegas.
2. First ever stay at Binion's (Apache Hotel)
Sadly, my upcoming trip also includes the worst possible Vegas day this side of NBA All Star Game Weekend (Daylight Savings Time Spring Forward lose an hour of Vegas time day - March 7th this year).
Other things still on my Vegas "to do" list, one or more I may hit this trip:
Zero Gambling Trip (very good possibility)
Dino's Bar (downtown)
Oyster Bar - Palace Station
- Multi-day slot tournament (Apr offer from Cal/MSS)
- Lappert’s Ice Cream (I’d better, considering I’ll be at that hotel complex for three nights )
- Hugo’s Cellar or Top of Binion’s Steakhouse (this is less definite - I would like to experience these places, and can pay w/ comps one way or another, but steak doesn’t excite me as much as other foods do... have to think about this one a bit)
- Stay somewhere other than QQQQ (see above )
- Get a suite at QQQQ (if only to get some better sleep... I don’t sleep on a bed at home, and sofa chairs, etc. are only in suites so it seems ); edit to note that my stay at 4Q will be immediately after my stay at the Cal
Remember to bet on all the basketball games I planned to bet on. Every time I'm there I look up at a TV and see a game going on that I had planned to bet on. Time just has a way of getting away from me in Vegas!
