    AJHawkfan Wanna make $14 the hard way?

    Hey guys, my wife and I are going to spend 3 nights in Las Vegas in April (neither of us have ever been there). We're staying at the Aladdin (we won the trip). Anyone ever stay there? How is it? Does anyone have any must-see, must-do suggestions; or other tips or advice? Neither of us are gamblers, so we will not be spending a lot of time inside the casinos.

    I have a lot of advice, but since you aren't a gambler, none of it is relevant. Never stayed at the Aladdin either. Sorry I'm no help.

    What the hell is the point of going to Vegas if you don't like to gamble?


    Kind of like going to Disney World even though you hate Mickey Mouse.

    If you want a good cheep meal go to Ellis Island. It's shady looking, but the food is good. $7 for a fillet minion (sp?), salad, and a beer. The Saturday brunch buffet at the Aladdin was amazing, $25 per but amazing. I stayed at the Flamingo.

    There are day trips places if you want to get out during the day. Gameworks and the M&M place are kind of cool. You can probably spend a day just walking the strip.

    Since you will be saving money by not gambling you could always opt for a threesome between your wife and one of the brothel chicks out there... hell, that's what I would do!

    Still man that would be tough. what are your plans if you don';t plan to gamble?

    I'm guessing you'll go to Hoover Dam (bore) and go to see some shows.

    Anything else?

    Maybe golfing?

    I stayed at the Aladdin in April of last year. It's a pretty nice place, but ranks towards the bottom of casinos where I would go just for atmosphere.

    I'm not a gambler either...I went for someone's surprise bday party, so I made the most out of the city and saw what I could.

    The few recommendations I have are, hang out at the Paris & the Venetian. The Paris was my favorite...the Venetian has class. Once you get inside most of the casinos, unfortunately they all look exactly the same. I can't understand the Vegas fascination to be honest, but it's a beautiful city at night, as long as you can tolerate 600,000 tourists in your face at every corner you turn. It has a certain romance to it, so if you're going with your wife, my suggestion would be to stay up as late as possible, wait for everyone to die off then go out and enjoy the city to yourselves. It is lit up through the night and the less people in the streets, the more you can relax.

    Short advice pieces: Eat at the buffets, if you're going to shop, go to Caeser's, NY, NY has an awesome atmosphere, the Excalibur is trash and is loaded with kids, the Paris waitresses wear the hottest outfits, the Venetian has a Guggenheim for a reasonable price (definitely visit that), see the Belaggio water show if you want to please your little lady & don't waste your time in old Vegas...it's a dump.

    Go see one of the Cirque Du Soleil shows. My wife and I saw Mystere at Treasure Island about 4 years ago. I wasn't crazy about going to see it but afterwards I thought it was one of the best things I've ever seen. It's defiantley something you have to see in person to appreciate. Tickets are about $100 each but I thought it was worth it.

    there is a resturant called Delmonico, owned by Emril, great steak, a bit pricey, but very good

    You could spend a month just seeing the shows and walking through the casinos/hotels.
    I was there last week, one of several trips a year.
    We ate at the Aladins resturaunt, Elements, which was rated one of the top 10 Vegas resturaunts. It was not cheap.
    There is an emirals restaraunt in the MGM, I think you need reservations well in advance.
    Check out the water fountain show, ride a gondola indoors. Go to the Rio and check out some of the bars.
    The list is endless.
    Do some research online.

    I do not gamble either.

    bucknola,


    How come all of your posts seems like one big run-on sentence?

    Do you have formatting issues with your computer?

    I don't think it's that. I think he just hits the enter key too much
