No leads, other than club recommendations? Surrender at encore or xces at the Wynn are a good time. Strip clubs, been to little darlings ( full nude no booze), hustlers (sucks), and a trashy joint that's know for favors (don't recall the name, but could google if interested). Guess it depends on what your looking for? If girls, hangout at a casino bar around 2:)

Where you staying at?

Burger and shakes-Holstein's in the Cosmopolitan
Pizza-the Pizzeria in the Cosmopolitan. You really have to look for this one, it's in a hidden hallway, but it's well worth it. I'm a pizza snob from Queens, it's the best slice outside of NY
Steak-The Steakhouse in the Hilton just off the strip, the steaks are amazing, reasonably priced and you absolutely must have the chocolate strawberry fondue for dessert
Buffet-Bellagio for lunch and Cosmopolitan for dinner
Beer-The Pub at the Monte Carlo. I had my wedding reception there. More beers on tap than I could count. Giles, Paula and I had a blast in there. Lots of fond memories

Jody and I have only seen two shows in Vegas, O by Cirque du Soleil and Le Reve in the Wynn. Both were fantastic. O is something everyone asks you if you've seen though.

Tattoos-Starborn Tattoo across from the Stratosphere. Ask for Cornfed. I have about 16 hours of work with him

Jody and I love Vegas, we try to make it there at least once a year. Our favorite hotel to date is the Cosmopolitan

Oh, well then, a lot of people are obsessed with inn n out burger:P

Truthfully, I don't think you can go wrong with seeing any of the shows at a major casino. Similarly, the food will be pretty good at any major casino. I can't offer much in these areas, but my brother lives in Vegas and I could get more info if you'd like.

"Free" beer does not help in that department.....

Did I tell you that they only charged me for 3hrs of open bar, but wound up giving us 4.5???

That was a great night

We need to do that again.

Not get married, hit Vegas

We are staying at the Cosmo.  Already heard about the pizza place from a couple other folks so  we will definitely be hitting that up.  We usually hit the Bellagio buffet and the Wynn buffet.  Thanks for the other pointers, this will probably be our 5th or 6th time in Vegas but its always good to get other people's faves.  We saw one of the Cirque de Soleils, liked it more than I thought I would. 

I need to start practicing my dice throwing!

Cosmo looks really nice. Was in Vegas last April and stayed at the Flamingo. Got the new deluxe rooms facing the waterfall at Bellagio for 40usd a night. Worth every cent. Caught the David Copperfield show at MGM. Was okay but pretty short at about 40 odds minutes? More talking than action. Too bad I wasn't of legal age, so no gambling(though I managed to play blackjack downtown at Golden Nugget once).

Ahhh, good ol' downtown...I had a pretty good haul from a craps table at the Fitz last time we were in town.  Hope I get another good run or two...need more IH!

Too bad you're going in the winter. The Bamboo Pool at the Cosmo is the happiest place on Earth. Def check out the Wicked Spoon there
