I'll be at a trade show at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas next week.

I only drink a little and figure that the gamble I take every time I drive the T is enough, so I am wondering if anyone has recommendations, if I get some fee time (most likely evenings)

Go to the "old strip" on Fremont? street one or two evenings. The hourly overhead light show is a sight worth seeing.

I agree with Bill. The old strip (Fremont Street) is worth doing a couple of times, and the people watching up there can be a hoot!!! Couple of good places to eat along there as well. I have always enjoyed the Cirque de Soleil shows as well. Fascinating stuff. There is also a gun place where you can rent almost any firearm and fire off a number of rounds!!!

My best advice is to avoid Las Vegas altogether. The Vegas motto "what happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas" only refers to your money, everything else will follow you home, and some are not curable.

Yuk, if you must go... keep your wallet in your pocket and remember the words of Ronaldus Magnus... "Just say NO"!

I agree with Gus. About 10 years ago my son and I were driving from Little Rock, AR to CA on Highway 40. We had a little extra time and decided to detour and make a stop in Las Vegas. Neither of us had ever been there before.

We parked, walked around for about an hour, then looked at each other and said, "Had enough yet?". We got back in the truck and left.

The trade show alternates between Las Vegas and San Diego each year.
On a scale of 1-10 I would place SD at 9 and LV at 3 for a trade show.
The only worse places would be Moscow, NY City, Miami in August, and Mexico City.

I have heard that Fremont Street allows you to get away from the tourists and see some interesting sights.
Does Fremont Street have the card slappers and old ladies in slippers?

One out of the way museums near Fremont Street is the Neon Sign Museum. They have lots of the earlier signs from many of the long gone casinos.

just sayin.

Rent a motorcycle for a day and drive through Red Rock Canyon. I did that 20 years ago and it's still one of the best $100 bills that I've ever spent. It was way better than wasting it in a casino.

I made it to Las Vegas yesterday afternoon and the place seemed to be dead. I got a call and met up with some friends for dinner at 8 and it was still dead. By the time we finished dinner- 9:30 - the place had come alive and I now know where Elvis is.

If the length of skirts is an indicator of the status of the economy I would say that many people are headed for financial prosperity and a few plan on being broke. Some of the prosperity gals may be a bit of over optimistic which is a bit too much for this old guy.
