    Im going to Vegas....and budget/good deal tips? things to see?

    especially on food? I heard about a 50 dollar buffet pass for 24 hrs. That would work out to 2 dinners, a breakfast and lunch if slick.

    talk to me the place im staying i hear is very expensive so im gonna "play the game"....enjoy their resort but look for deals off campus so to speak. I already warned my girl not to touch the coffee/water/drinks in the room lol

    Still, you will have to leave sometime to casino jump.Its 104 in Northern Cali, and i cant imagine 15 degrees more.

    The buffets are good, but that 24 hour pass seems like it would lead to a lot of bad stomach issues, and extended poop times. Who wants that on vacay?

    The nickel slots are fun.

    Oh, and the band "Purple Reign" sounds gay, but is VERY good.

    Get you some acid, find some Ether, and go to this place.

    If you play golf take a day and hit Rio Secco, hire one of their "TeeMates" (smoking SMOKING hot broads) to caddy/etc. for you. After sousing it up at the 19th hole, grab a limo to the Spearmint Rhino for a few lapdances, then head back to your Bellagio suite for a power nap/sh:t/shower/shave, head downstairs to Prime Steakhouse and then hit the craps tables until 4am.

    Worked for me.

    is there like a cvs walking distance from caesars palace/? i would like to buy supplies. need some kuerig coffee things instead of 4 bucks a pop that that place wants.

    someone told me they have electronics in the machines and you will get charged even if you bring your own. this cant be possible right?

    also has anyone done the roller coaster that goes up that building?

    I haven't been to Vegas in about 5 years (damn kids) but the restaurant at the Hard Rock used to have a steak and shrimp special that wasn't on the menu (you have to ask for it) for something ridiculously cheap - $7.77 or so.

    Best deal around if its still offered. They have a great Pool party on Sundays as well (or they used to at least). If you're looking for a festive atmosphere during the day, check out the various Pool parties. A different hotel hosts one each day of the weekend - the Palms used to be on Friday, maybe the Mirage or MGM on Saturday and Hard Rock on Sunday. Tons of talent on display if your girl doesn't mind.

    Casino Royale (between Flamingo and Venetian) is a great deal on the strip. Rooms are about $75 per night, beers and margaritas at the bar are $1. I don't gamble but I heard buy in for craps is way cheaper than than anywhere else on the strip and the location is walking distance to any club, show or restaurant worth seeing.

    The Roller Coaster at the New York New York is a little pricey but I thought it was worth it.

    There's a Walgreens attached to the Venetian and many all over town. Rent a car they are very cheap in Vegas.

    Hugo's cellar in the four queens (downtown)is a phenomenal old school steakhouse.. And if your downtown , go ziplining across freemont street at night, it's a lot of fun.

    If your outdoors person , get up way early and go hiking in the red rocks before the heat starts...bout a 30 minute drive.
