    What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!

    Win? Lose? Or, just go for the sights, show and hookers?

    We're going in a few months. Where would you recommend good eats out there? Best food ever ate in my life was in Vegas.

    I was going to add some pics but holy sh#t I have been in bed for 2 days straight. My heads still mashed from the experience lol

    There are so many good places to eat and it depends on what you are into but my favorite was the heart attack grill at the bottom of fremont street. I know its not fancy and its fast food but you get to wear a hospital gown and if your over 350 pounds you eat free lol. But I have to say that the best place I ate was where I stayed in the Mirage at some cool laid back lil Brazilian steak house

    I did go downtown to fremont street as every night they had live bands just playing on stage from about 8 pm to 11:30 every night of the week. It was cool to just chill at the patio bar and chug down 24 oz cans of bud for only $5.75 and you get to see all the interesting characters shuffle on by. I did do the zip line thing down fremont and saw 4 diff videos being played on the worlds largest led tv. They had the doors, heart , queen and bon jovi. All the bands would stop playing and everyone would stop and stare up at the big LG screen

    I did get to go and do a day trip to the hoover dam and grand canyon that went along some of route 66. The most insane part of my trip was on the last day where I took a trip up the stratosphere and I am terrified of heights as I have severe vertigo. Just to get up the thing was $22 but you add $5 to that for each ride you wana go on or you pay $15 a ride once your up there.I could not look out the windows edge as it goes in this insane slant and heard a few guys laughing as I was crawling on the floor trying to look overlol. Me and my wife paid for 2 rides each but once up there we regretted it big time. The first ride was the extreem or exscream?with the roller coaster that shoots out over the edge, I was so thankful to be in the back seats. I was intending to go on the one that shoots up vertical but then my wife grew some huge balls and wanted to go on the insanity ride where you spin round over the edge, my legs and arms got so tense I could hardly stand once it was time to get off

    All in all I had a great time and would love to go back next time for a good 20 day visit to get to see everything that I missed. All the hotels I walked around were beautiful looking and there was something for everyone. The most lame thing I did there was pay $56 for madam tussaud's wax works as it was really lame with garbage props and no variety unlike the other ones I have visited. I lost tons of money on the gambling so I wont be doing much of that again. I was thinking there was these news paper machines on the street but upon closer inspection it was adds for all diff kinds of hookers for $69 lol.

    I did wana go see the pawn stars store but there was a line all the way down the street so I did not bother with that one. Vegas was a great lil mini vacation and I am glad I came back in one piece as there are a few shady folks trying to sell you weed and hand out porno cards a little too aggressively for my liking

    We met the Old Man at the Pawn Stars shop; he was practically begging for someone to end his misery. I don't care for the strip, really. We went and saw it just to check it off of our list, playing $1 in a slot.

    Glad you had a good time PFB. Personally,I can think of a thousand places I'd rather visit.
    If you can't hear a difference, don't waste your money.
