    Anyone been to Vegas?

    I'm headed out in December with some friends for my Bachleor party. We're either staying at the MGM or Mandalay.

    This will be my first trip out there. We're going out the 18th of December and coming back the 22nd. Way cheaper than going for New Years.

    Just wondering if there were any places I should go to or anything I should make sure I do while out there.

    haha. Everyone is invited. Come on out.

    I'm trying to gamble the small slot machines and such, and get the free drinks.

    I'm going to play some cards, but I don't want to lose my life.

    I'm looking forward to gambling on sports and horse racing. For some reason we got hooked on it in college watching it on DirecTV.

    I'm going to have to wear my Jets jersey in Vegas on Sunday and watch the Jets game and bet on it.

    LOL. I thought about going there just to ask that, but I bet ever since that movie they get asked that a million times.

    Yeah I'm going to play some blackjack for sure.

    I just want to play cheap crap so I can stay and get free drinks.

    Roulette is a must. Plus craps. I lost about $50 on craps on a cruise, so I need my revenge.

    You can get a lot of stuff in Vegas for cheap or even free if you ask and it's on an off night. Wait til Monday afternoon and complain to the front desk about something, anything. I've been to Vegas twice and both times was upgraded to a suite for free! You and your boys dress nice when you go out at night and you'll get free rides from one of the hotel's drivers. Strip clubs also have limos and will come pick you up/take you other places from the club. They all do this expecting to get tipped of course. I love Vegas.

    A buddy of mine works at the Wynn but is new. I'll see if he has any kind of hookup and let you know.

    anyway, back to lurking.

    When you go to ASU for your undergrad and Vegas is only a 4 hour drive away, you end up there way too much haha. We'd typically stay down by the Mirage/Harrah's/Treasure Island/Imperial Palace area.

    Easiest way to get loaded, find out where the bar is where the cocktail waitresses get their drinks. Find the closes penny slots to that area. Post up there, bet one penny at a time if you have to, or just sit there and bullshit with your buddies while drinks are coming.

    Strip clubs - do NOT go into the champagne room!!! haha. Sapphire is the only one I've ever been to. It's pretty crazy cause the girls I would talk to were typically flown in from SoCal for the weekend. Could you imagine working a job where you'd actually make more money by going somewhere else for the weekend??? As mentioned earlier though, call the strip clubs to have a limo pick you up and it should be comped. More money for dances.

    You can survive long term with free drinks playing poker too. Just find a $2/4 limit table and play conservatively. I've played for HOURS and come out slightly ahead or broken even. You're not gonna strike it rich on those tables, but you won't go broke either.

    I'd skip the strip clubs in Vegas. At least coming from Portland, they were a disappointment. No full nudity and overpriced.

    If you get a chance, go up to the old downtown one night. A fairly cool show right on the street that's hard to describe, and those old casinos like Binion's and the Nugget are kinda cool for a short visit.

    Ahhh, Vegas, I really need to get back...

    Hoosier and Mutt posting in the same week, all we are missing is Flo asking how you change the order of recruits on your recruiting board, and we will have come full circle.

    As someone who lived in SoCal and Phoenix for 20 years and used to hit Vegas 2-3 times a month, I concur 100% with everything said above.

    Another good way to get free booze is the keno room at the big casinos, just make sure everyone has the keno sheets around so it looks like you are playing and the drinks should flow.

    Spearmint Rhino is probably the best. Saphire is huge. Scores, Treasures and Deja Vu are all good clubs. I heard there was a Hustler Club in Vegas now and those are always top notch. I had a lot of fun at Seamless, which turns into a nightclub at 4 am but girls continue to do lap dances in the corners.

    Overpriced drinks for sure but that's the industry. If you guys go out on Sunday or Monday, you can call ahead and see what their drink specials are.



    I'm not sure what you guys have going on in Portland but it seems like there are a ton of small clubs with alternative girls who do Burlesque.

    Haha...You forgot the cross dressers and the hippies shaving their legs on stage. Portland certainly has its share of odd places, but we also have a ton of good old fashioned, $5 for a steak, cheap happy hour, fully nekkid girls, strip clubs. I heard somewhere that Portland has more strip clubs and lingerie shops per capita than any other city in the country. Hurray for civic pride!

    Where I live, you can get a girl to marry you for the amount of money you spend in a strip club...she might not have all her teeth, but...she will gum the hell out of you.

    This is why I'll always have doubts about moving to Ohio.

    Also, just in case you aren't aware, don't touch the shit in the mini fridge in your hotel room. Everything is on a weighted sensor and if you so much as lift the shit up it gets billed to your hotel room. Now there's one thing I'll condone you use in an emergency......the pack of rubbers.

    After just spending a week in Charlotte, I must say, that place has a ton of hot females. At least in the downtown area. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Also, one of the girls I was at training with, a couple of us went out to lunch the one day and I was chatting her up. Turns out she was a UNC cheerleader and is currently dating Tyler Hansbrough. She didn't like it so much when I told her I preferred the Dukies. I must say, Tyler's not doing too bad for himself. Lucky bastid!

    He has an easy recipe for hot chicks:

    Add 1 Part Cash
    Add 1 Part Fame

    May substitute great looking, or ginormous penis for either ingredient
