    Vegas Baby

    Going to Vegas for first time during the first round of NCAA Tourney. Any suggestions, things I need to see, best gambling, shows, etc. from Vegas vets? First to suggest Carrot Top gets a beating.

    Re: Vegas Baby

    I wouldn't recommend getting a baby in Vegas. It's the kind of thing that seems cool at the time, but just like a baby tiger, they get bigger. On second thought, get a baby tiger.

    Yes, and the one in Harrah's isn't that bad either... worth a beer or two or 12!

    They have the best koozies that say - "Stolen from: Mabel's Whorehouse - Whre the customer comes first!" We buy them everytime we go. I think we have like 20. They are the good koozies too.

    We loved seeing O and seeing Mama Mia. I would call the ticket offices, the shows are struggling and might give you a deal. We got BOGO (buy one get one) for Mama Mia and had the best seats in the house. But, that was b/c they were having a deal for residents. We know a ton of people who live there.

    A fair amount. that is the bad part. Drinks in Vegas (unless you are gambling) are generally expensive.

    I would love to go watch Cris Angel's show to see if he's that big of flamer in person, but don't want to spend a crap load on a ticket.

    Re: Vegas Baby

    drinks are expensive no matter where you go for the most part. There are lots of great deals to be had for hotel rooms if you have not booked yet let me know I can help you find something. I was just there 2 weeks ago, and had a $200 a night suite for $50 a night.

    I went and saw penn and teller while I was there they were great. If you want to see a show there are places called tickets 4 less that sell half priced tickets to shows the day of the shows, but you have to go stand in line at there place to get them.

    I would recommend seeing Penn & Teller, as well. They perform at the Rio. Amazing stuff.

    Re: Vegas Baby

    With the economy the way it is, it is really easy to get tickets to shows. Even when I was there for the UNLV game my shuttle driver said that places were pretty much giving away free tickets to shows just to get butts in the seats. That way they could atleast make some money on concessions and souvenirs.
