I’m not from Vegas but I do love it there.  I don’t have good any suggestions as far as clubs or restaurants offhand without going to find where I’ve been…so I’d have to think about it.

I’d prefer to stay somewhat central on the Strip so those casinos are around Planet Hollywood, Bellagio, Paris, Ballys, Flamingo, Caesars, Harrahs…I think for $100-$150 a night you should look at Harrahs, Flamingo, Ballys, or Planet Hollywood.  Those all have really good locations.  I’ve only stayed at Harrahs out of those.  Not my favorite casino but the room was nice and it had a good location. I’ve heard pretty good things about the Flamingo rooms (but I’ve never seen them)

Planet Hollywood actually has my favorite sportsbook so I’d probably stay there for ease of access to that (my second favorite might be at the Venetian).  If he or any of his friends enjoys sports betting you can access a lot from that area and January has NFL playoff games and also college basketball games.  I’ve been for the first rounds of March Madness so I think I’ve seen every sportsbook on the Strip, ha!

@pengoala:  I looove Vegas. Just went actually.

It helps to stay near the middle of the strip, I find. I love the Wynn/Encore but it is kinda far away. I’d suggest Bellagio or Paris or Caesar’s as good middle of the strip hotels. You can find awesome deals online, you just have to have a bit of patience. These hotels aren’t the cheapest, but I think you can probably find a good deal.

There’s a Maggiano’s on the strip at Fashion Show Mall and you can book a room, that might be a good place to hold the party.

As far as night clubs go, we’re not clubbing people… can’t help you there…

The Wynn’s Le Reve is an awesome show. It’s like Cirque du Solei in water! I’d also love to see the Beatles show at the Mirage. We saw the ABBA show at New York New York when we were there last week. It was ok for a small show… but if you want something really impressive I’d go w. a Cirque du Solei one.

Hi!  I live in Las Vegas. πŸ™‚

As far as hotels go, I would look to see if THEHotel at Mandalay Bay has any specials/deal going on.  It’s on the end of the strip but all of the rooms are suites so it’s nice to have the living room area (with an extra bathroom) to entertain friends and what not.  The Palazzo is also really nice – mini suite – and centrally located.

Personally, I would stay away from major chain restaurants like Maggiano’s – not that it isn’t good – but with SO many great restaurant choices here in Vegas, you should try something you can’t get at home.  There are some really great restaurants in the Venetian/Palazzo resorts – in varying price ranges.  If the weather is nice, make sure you hit up Mon Ami Gabi for brunch/lunch outside on the patio to watch the Bellagio fountain show and the people walking up and down the strip.  The food is fab as is the people watching.

As far as shows go, Cirque’s LOVE is outstanding and not a bad seat in the place, O is mindblowing, and Absinthe is supposed to be really entertaining but I have yet to see it so I can’t speak personally.
