I'M GOING TO VEGAS!!!! When: Arriving late Sunday night, May 1st. Not MM2, but what the heck. Where: 5 nights at Treasure Island Who: I'll be solo until noon Tuesday, when my parent get to town. Will probably spend a few hours a day with them. Other: I'll have a rental car. I've been to Vegas 15+ times, some solo, some with family. This is my list of "things to do in Vegas". Much too much for one trip, but I'm going to make a stab at it. I'm looking for comments ("Don't do that!!") or suggestions (what show to hit, which strip club to visit). Bold items are things I think I'm going to focus on. The rest depends on time, alcohol, and gambling success. Places to eat - Grad Lux Cafe. Never been before. - Get a 1 1/2 pound burger at The Plaza Diner - Peppermill. Never been before, but dying to try it. - Check out the Freakin' Frog for a beer or two - Sam Woo Bar-B-Q - Burger Bar at Mandalay Place - Burger Palace at IP - Dishes at TI - Paris buffet breakfast. I've only been there for dinner before. - Get a beer sampler at a brew pub, probably Monte Carlo (been there before) or Ellis Island (never been) - Pig out on meat at a Brazilian restaurant - Samba Grill, Rum Jungle, Yolie's. Only been to Samba before. - Get a Double-Double-Animal-Style with grilled onions, no tomato at In-N-Out. I've been there once in my life, but only had a basic burger. - Sonic (only been there once before) - Try Schoop's for a burger. - Capriottis for a Slaw Be Jo - L&L Hawaiian Barbecue on Maryland Pkwy - Tacos Mexico on W. Sahara - Eat 'Em Sandwiches on E. Sunset Gambling - Play some Hold 'em. I've played 7-card stud in the casinos, but never Hold 'em. - Play more blackjack Shows - Go see Ka at MGM - See We Will Rock You at The Paris - Forbidden Vegas at the Westin - Wonders From Down Under at The Hilton (?) - Barry Manilow at The Hilton - Penn & Teller - Zumanity (Not sure about this one. I'm open minded, but I can't tell from reviews if this is entertaining or not.) - Ron Lucas at The Rio Other Things To Do/See - Check out the new Wynn. - Valley of Fire - Garden of Eden sanctuary at The Flamingo - Spend some time people watching, probably at Harrah's Carnival Court - Visit a strip club. Never been to one in Vegas. Looking for a place where it's not too weird for a guy to go alone, and where the women don't "harrass" constantly. - Watch some Kereoke at Tequila Joe's (not enough liquor in Vegas to get me to participate) - Gambler's Book Store - Visit a casino(s) I've never been too - Boardwalk, Palms, GVR, Orleans, most downtown casinos. - Get a specialty drink somewhere - like a yard of some really strong drink somewhere - Guggenheim at The Venetian (so I can call this a cultural trip) - Go to the Atomic Testing Museum - Check out the Casino Legends museum - King Tut museum - Ride the monorail at least once - See the Freemont Experience (been to the old one, prior to the new high resolution version) - Thunderstorm at the Desert Passage - Watch the whole fountain show at Bellagio (only seen pieces of the show before) - Bellagio Gallery of Fine Arts - Bacchus Show at the Forum Shops (Just saw pieces before while walking by) - Great Hall Epic Battle at the Forum Shops (Same as Bacchus show) - Dragon Battle at Excalibur - See an IMAX movie at The Luxor - Sky parade at The RIO (saw it once before, and enjoyed it) - Visit the wine cellar for a tasting at The Rio - Go to the top of the Stratosphere and avoid the rides at all costs. - Wildlife walk at The Tropicana - Go to Neonopolis (is it still there?) - Titanic exhibit at the Tropicana This is a pretty ambitious list, I know, but I'm going to do what I can in between gambling binges. What do you think? Anything I should scratch off the list? Anything to add? There's plenty I've done and seen as far as restaurants, shows, and attractions goes, but I'm always open to suggestions. Thanks!
