The girlfriend and I are heading to Vegas for Sept 20 - 24 and we are looking for some ideas for things to do, preferably recommended by folks who've done them. I have checked out previous questions tagged for vegas but of course need to provide our details...
I have been to Vegas once, when 13, so essentially I've never been. the missus has been a few times but not for a few years.
We were wanting to see Penn and Teller, but it looks like they are not playing the week we'll be going there. We want to try and find something that will fill that spot, with the emphasis being on comedy rather than on magic.
We'd also like to find some sort of burlesque or adult type show that can be enjoyed as a couple. Nothing too boyzone (or girlzone).
We want to find some real deal, locals favorite foods. And also some more of the touristy stuff. Any greasy spoons that can't be missed? Any upper scale places that we need to experience?
We drink, and wish to do so, perhaps to excess. We may do some gambling, though that will likely be a way to spend a time while being fed free drinks (is that still possible? where to do this?). I'd also love to sit down at a poker table, somewhere not terribly intimidating, to just play a few hands for funsies.
We are also both gamers / nerdy types. I was disappointed to learn that Quark's bar is no longer :/
We will not be renting a car. We are staying at the Tropicana. We are not opposed to some walking / public transit / taxis.
How can I make this trip awesome for both of us? Thanks folks.
