    Tix4tonight(or directly from the casino if you're staying there) for shows.

    Join the players club(ie mlife.com) and get better rates that way.

    Doing Vegas next weekend with my wife. Any good recommendations for some first timers? We enjoy eating and experiencing the city.

    Looking to do the Absinthe show. Anybody done that before?

    Absinthe is a must. Foundation room (get the crab cakes) for drinks and the best view in Vegas. Julian serrano for tapas. Mesa grill is great. Tacos el gordo is a must. There's an in n out on the strip now. Secret pizza. Steakhouse at the Wynn has my interest. Do mystere if you've never done a cirque show. Learn to play craps.

    My wife and I did dinner at Picasso at Bellagio (outdoors overlooking the fountain) for our anniversary. I would recommend that.

    Going to Vegas w/ wife (she’s been 3x, me 12+), never been together.

    Staying at Mirage. Only thing on the docket so far is Absinthe Sunday night. Certainly will enjoy the pool and at least one nice dinner.

    Anyone done the Neon Museum before?

    Had casino night at my job tonight. At the end of the night, there was an auction. Yeti coolers, sound bar, mini speakers, Amazon gift cards etc

    Started with $50k. Ended with $200k. Hit 3 yo elevens. Got a Bose speaker.

    Just got back from 5 days. Station Casinos is putting close to a billion dollars into the Palms. Going to have all new restaurants including a Bobby Flay and Vandal from the Beauty and Essex guy. Apparently the plans for the pool are awesome as well. It’s been completely ripped out. Will be interesting to see if it can make a comeback to how popular it was 10 years ago.

    Heading out on Sunday for 3 comped nights at the Bellagio. I'll do one night at Park MGM (old Monte Carlo) since I'm in Vegas for 4 nights and bellagio was too expensive to add a night.


    Making a point to try new restaurants.


    Beauty and Essex, SW Steak, Bazaar Meats, picasso, and Bavette are on the list. Need a legit Italian spot with a good lobster/scallops dish.

    All of those are awesome. At Bavette’s don’t let them put you at a table with bench seating against the wall. At Picasso try to get a patio table. The Picasso patio is a top dining experience. Offer up a nice “tip” to the Maitre d’ if you have to. I would recommend Aria Carbone for Italian, but I never saw lobster being prepped with scallops in their kitchen so I don’t think they have the combo that you seek. If you do dine at Carbone be sure to get the Rigatoni Vodka. Lago at Bellagio has a Risotto with lobster, scallops, shrimp and clams.

    Obviously depends on your mood, where you've already eaten, and who you're with. I'll give you a couple places if you want more of an experience. http://pieroscuisine.com/ - if you want more original Vegas feel. Hugo's cellar in 4 queens old vegas if you want to combine a walk down freemont with dinner. I ate at both in the last few days and was not disappointed.

    All good suggestions. Keep them coming. I'm not even sure right now what type of cuisine we would want. I know that doesnt help but I'm checking out menus of all suggestions.

    Sands Corp dumped them as opposed to Batali’s deciding to close. All of Batali’s places were at Venetian/Palazzo. And, yes, it’s because of the sexual harassment issues.
