    Depends on your interest but the Pinball Hall of Fame on Tropicana is a lot of fun. All funds are donated to a charity. Lots of fun if you grew up in that era. Great selection of new and old machines.

    That might be interesting, lol.

    One cathouse, the chicken ranch has a parlor area. In there you can buy t shirts, shot glasses and stuff. I picked up a t shirt when I visited the place (over 10 years ago, lol). The t-shirt had the chicken ranch name and it said "freshly laid", lol. They also have a bar area with a pool table, guess the "customers" can relax there or wait while a friend was being serviced. Some of the girls would come out to check out the customers and try to coax them to get serviced. :kiss:

    There is another cathouse a few doors down, sheri's ranch. Nice place, they even had a piano where you could relax and play tunes. :drunk:

    I'm not sure if they will let you into their inner sanctum (the girls room) but I guess you could always ask.

    Hey, maybe you can do the cathouse thing after you visit the winery, lol.

    LMAO, that gave me a chuckle, but Ross is a good Scottish name if that is apropos.

    And thank you for mentioning that pirate cove house. I never heard of it before but that could be location for my retirement party! :D

    I love the Pinball Hall of Fame! We're going there with our wedding guests at some point before the wedding. :wave:

    I used to be a game room attendant for Aladdin's Castle in the early 80's so the Pinball Hall of Fame really brings backs some memories for me. I still remember how to take pinball machines apart to clean them. I just wish I could afford to buy one.....maybe someday I will?

    LOL!! I might just go buy a t-shirt for my future son in law. I could give it to him the day after the wedding. :thumbsup: That would be pretty darn funny.

    Ross is a great name! Much nicer sounding on a birth certificate than TravelFiend.

    And if you have your retirement party at Pirate's Cove I want to be invited!!

    Thanks everyone for all of your awesome suggestions. My trip was last week and I had a blast!! I ended up with very little free time on my hands after all. But I'm looking forward to my next trip in October so I can try even more of the things suggested on here.

    The one thing I love about Vegas is even after all these years of going out there I still have tons to do and see on my Vegas Bucket list. :beer:
