Any recommendcations for prof navigating the Vegas strip?
First of all, get yourself to the downtown strip for at least a few hours. That's where you want to play your table games and poker, or drink through a straw from a yard of daiquiri hanging around your neck while operating two slot machines. Or so I hear.
On the main strip... just about all the Sports Books are good. There's a PF Chang's in the Planet Hollywood. Use the monorail -- it's, a much longer walk than you think. There's a Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville now. I'd skip the Cirque shows. What else did you want to know?
Oh, and if you get married, I highly recommend the Hitching Post -- the lucky place to get hitched for life.
