    What's everyone doing in Vegas?

    It's time to change the direction of the discussion on this board-if you smell what I'm cookin.

    Other than the game, and a bit of gambling, what is everyone doing in Vegas?

    For us, there will definately be a trip to the piano bar at NYNY, and a show of some sort (we may wait till we get there and do the half price deal at the mall). For those who want to see a great show, I would recommend Love at the Mirage, we saw it last year and it is amazing.

    What is on your list of things to do?

    Re: What's everyone doing in Vegas?

    We just finally booked our trip. Gonna be out there Thursday - Tuesday. We definitely will be going to NYNY and the Piano bar. Its a great time. Some browsing at the Forum Shops. Buy a couple Giraffes at the Monte Carlo brew pub.
    The wife wants to go back to Sigfried and Roys Garden to see if they have any new turtles. We want to see another Cirque show, we saw O last time. SO probably Zumanity.

    Anyone know how much tickets will be through ISU will cost? I looked last night and they are a dirt cheap $31 sideline OR $19 endzone. I will probably just order them through UNLV just to guarantee that we get them.

    Plus one of my best friends from college is a pit boss at the Wynn poker room, so I will probably play a little poker there.

    We're looking forward to KA.

    Re: What's everyone doing in Vegas?

    I've seen a few out on the strip handing out coupons.

    There is an Impersonator Convention in town this week, we saw a lot of Elvises and othe celebrities.
    Even saw Brad and Angelina.

    Time to go get drunk (again).

    We really like the outdoor patio at Irish bar in NYNY. Probably be there some and hit the piano bar I'm sure. Possibly golf if it's not a million degrees.

    Re: What's everyone doing in Vegas?

    We'll be there Friday - Monday. I've never been to the North Strip, so I wouldn't mind hitting up there. The Carousel Bar between Harrah's and The Orient (or whatever it is) is a lot of fun, too - bartenders pour drinks "Cocktail"-style, and there's usually a decent cover band. I'd like to hit Cirque du Soleil.

    The Orient- I believe you're referring to The Imperial Palace. And I assume the Carousel Bar is Barbary Coast (has a lot of lights at the front, looks like a carnival) but I could be wrong. O'Shea's is also in that area, they have a dancing midget/leprechaun on the bar. They also have CASINO WAR!

    Oh, and to answer the original question, I've always wanted to rent a Viper in Vegas, but I doubt I'll do it this trip.

    I'm an idiot - yes, the Imperial Palace. I couldn't remember the name, so I just posted what seemed right. The place I'm thinking of is like a giant merry-go-round, just a little outside bar with a stage. Is that it?

    O'Shea's has the really long, SUPER cheap happy hour, too!
