Best things to do in Las Vegas?

I'm leaving Denver tonight to go to Vegas. I'd like to meet some of you guys if you are going for Memorial Day weekend.
sorry to hijack.

Haha, I'm the odd man out I guess. I was at vegas for a 3 day weekend to do a meet and I *HATED* it. I'm used to overpriced **** since I live in one of the most expensive areas in Cali, and everything in vegas was MORE overpriced. I'm not into hookers, I don't really drink much unless I'm with a bunch of friends (and never before a meet), I can't stand to gamble (and the noise/smoke on the floor drives me NUTS) and the buffets didn't impress me AT ALL - a notch above sizzler but not up to my local fare.
There are like 10 different cirque de soliel shows though, all of them are pretty nifty, at least all the ones I've seen.

I love to gamble... And as far as the buffets, I have to agree that the buffets aren't spectacular and there is better food out there (I actually have pretty sophisticated taste in food) but I still love cheap all you can eat food. And again, on a bulker, it would be unreal. Best city I've ever been to for food, though, is New Oreans. Hands down.

I won a trip to Vegas about 6 years ago through my old job. I was the only single person there and also the youngest so my experience on the strip kind of lacked. The best part for me is that a few of us chipped in on a mustang convertible for the weekend and went to places outside of town like the dam, Lake Meade and a place I think was called red rocks. We also took some gravel road out in the middle of nowhere up and into the mesas.
The casinos are crazy and cool in their own way. I've been to casinos in Windsor, Canada; Cripple Creek, CO; and Colon, Panama and nothing has even compared.

I HATE casinos - went to a convention a few years ago, in a Reno hotel/casino; the stench of stale tobacco and spilled drinks, the deafening noise from all the machines, the bewildering floor plans designed to trap visitors in the gaming area, the mediocre food, high prices and predatory staff all added up to a long weekend in hell.
All that, and not a REAL poker game to be found anywhere (most "gambling" is just wishful thinking, in my view)...I couldn't *wait* to get out of there & get back on the plane (and I hate flying, too - wasn't so bad when I was 150# or less, but now...).
Anyway, hope you & your girl have a great time

OMG... f/n Sportacus as NateDogg's avatar. Thankfully my 2yo has no interest in that show.

Just got back from there 2 weeks ago. Check out the bikini bull riding at the Frontier.
