Lazarus, you have come here and you have brought good and wealth, but you have also brought your bad habits as a backslider and a Cubs fan. You've lusted after women, and you have abandoned your child. Your child that you raised...you have abandoned...all because he was sick and because you are a Cubs fan. So say it now- I am a sinner.

We liked Excalibur a lot. We've also stayed at the Gold Coast, which is about a mile west of The Strip, but less expensive; and there's a shuttle to The Strip about every 20 minutes. It was decent--at least it was two years ago! Save money on lodging so you can spend it gambling, I say!

Carlos already mentioned Fremont Street in Vegas which is what I was going to say too... be sure to visit it in the evening/night because the whole thing is covered now and they play cool light show thingies in the sky every hour or so... they're dorky but still fun. And of course like C said there's the whole ISHFWILF video factor, all still very recognizable. Have fun! Vegas

I do not share the Fremont Street love.

I don't care what was filmed there, it's a crappy hole in a bad neighborhood.

I guess it still reminds me of the old Vegas as I knew growing up, since that was bigger than the strip back then... and besides it has Vegas Vic and Vicky. Classics

I can see why you are saying this, but for those that do not make the Vegas trip very often, it's something to check out.IMO.

For me Vegas is no more than a 3 days stay....after the 3rd day, you start

GAF: Fuck downtown Vegas. Don't bother.

Mandalay is my favorite place to stay and to gamble, but it will likely be pricey this time of year. I've done Excalibur in a pinch, and it's not all that bad. You'll not be spending too much time there anyway, hopefully. Hard Rock Casino is a shitty place to gamble, but a great place to people watch. I actually like gambling at Paris, too, not sure why. BeeGee is the one you ought to listen to, but, I lived in LA for 10 years and made at least 3 trips to Vegas a year with my idiot friends, so I have a little experience here. Nobody seems to like the Alladin, so maybe it'll be reasonably inexpensive.

Did anyone mention the Hoover Dam? If you get antsy in Vegas and need a change of pace, maybe drive out there for a few hours.....

I've been to the Canyon twice, but never hiked down or anything, so, BeeGee is again the one to listen to here. I stand in awe of that place, though, and I'm glad you'll be seeing it. Please see it sober?

Dude, have a fucking great time and remember what Wesley Snipes said:

Always bet on Black.

I don't even play roulette, but whatever.

^ oh yeah the Hoover Dam Bypass is going on right now too. Not only is the dam an amazing site, this construction project is a mind boggling thing to witness. Definitely worth the short trip out there to see that.

Thanks for the info NSW! I will try my damnedest to be sober at the Canyon...but Vegas is an entirely different story.

But what do you mean exactly by this?...

What part of Vegas is "downtown"?...I am totally clueless here.

And I just got word that one of my friends already booked our rooms for Vegas, without me knowing, at the Stratosphere hotel. And I'm a little worried because it's a place that none of you guys even mentioned. I'm sure it will still be amazing and is probably not too far from the strip. But do any of you guys know anything about the Stratosphere? I hope it's cool.

:Pray:
