Shit that's the week before I'm there. Will respond later with a list.

Food? Drinks? Strip clubs?

Ok man, sorry. 

 

Food. I know you like Thai. Go to Lotus of Siam. It's truly amazing. To go there is to taste Thai food for the first time all over again.

There's a Japanese place that most of the chefs in town and all of the food critics shit themselves over...Raku.

 

http://www.raku-grill.com/

 

Go to In-N-Out Burger on Dean Martin. :lol:

 

If you want steak and don't mind dropping some coin, Carnevino in the Palazzo is very good. You can find good, old school style steak downtown...solid meal at a fair price. I'd recommend Binon's Ranch on Fremont.

Protip: buy alcohol and make drinks to take with in your room. Vegas bars are exorbitantly expensive, which is to be expected. Either hit an outlying liquor store on the way from the airport or hit up Walgreens on the strip. You can drink anywhere on the Strip and downtown. I like local bars like the Double Down Saloon, Dino's and Frankie's Tiki Room. Drinking downtown is cheap too. Go to La Bayou for the everclear daiquiris. 

 

Don't bother with the strip clubs. They're pathetic. :lol: If you must go, make it the Spearmint Rhino.

Thanks Josh. I always like to be riminded to eat once and a while when I'm out there.

Gonna try both your Japanese and Thai suggestions this time around.

And then the tape recorder, for special music, and some Acapulco shirts. The only way to prepare for a trip like this was to dress up like human peacocks and get crazy, then screech off across the desert and cover the story.
