So my friemds are going to Vegas for the 5th time in their lives. I decided to tag along since I've never been there yet (and after a whole lot of peer pressure ). So tell me for those who went before, what I do expect therr aside from excessive drinking and gambling? Any places you recommend?

Apart from the drinking and gambling, there are the hookers who fall in love with the wealthy clients who hire them to pretend to be their girlfriend for a week.

It's a place that exists within an artificial oasis in Nevada near the California border.

I've never been but I work at a casino so I have sort of been.

The currency is bottlecaps and I know a place where you can buy really reasonably priced plasma rifles.

Oh, and watch out for those rapey men in red sports equipment.

You'll probably enjoy it if you're not a party pooping loser like the rest of us here who've only played Fallout.

It's amazing how quickly you will lose $200 in Vegas.

Not can. Will.

EDIT: Only thing I can think to recommend is that roller coaster outside New York, New York. It's like almost $20 for a ticket, but you're so drunk you won't be thinking about the money. It's a blast and I think it runs almost all night.

EDIT 2: $14, but I went on it twice. >_>

I think most of my money will be spent on liquer and food than gambling

Speaking of which, how is In and Out Burger? Most I talked to told me it was the shit.

In n Out is very basic, and is kind of a classic
definitely not bad, but it's not the best you'll ever have

It was near my hotel, but I never went. I dunno if it's supposed to be as good as the one in CA. But I hear it's good nonetheless. I've never been to any In N Out though so I dunno.

This.
Its FUCKING HOT there.

My sister lives there.
I dunno how the hell she manages it.

And actually, prostitution IS NOT legal in Vegas.
You have to go outside the city limits.
I'm not even sure if its legal in Clark County.
Very few cities in Nevada have brothels within city limits.
Except in Ely, Nevada, which is like 8+ hours drive north and is THE SHITHOLE of Nevada (its like a cross between Gilligan's Island and Deliverance).

If you are going this time of the year, you and your friends are insane.

And if food is gonna be your thing, hit the casino buffets.
Most of the casinos in Nevada have some damn good food at the buffets and its all you can eat for hella cheap.
You can also get like 99 cent breakfasts at some of the casinos (At least they have a few in Reno at that price).

I would say screw Vegas and go to Reno.
And Lake Tahoe is just over the hill from Reno.

I lived in Ely for 2.5 years when I worked at the Max Prison there.
And like 90% of the people there are stuck up Mormons.
Bill Gates doesn't have enough money to make me move back there.

Ely does have a few Brothels in the downtown area, about a block off of the main street (which is HWY 50)

Note to self: when going to the US, do not go within 50 miles of Ely, Nevada.

or should I just ride in there with a nuke strapped to a tank?

I don't need brothels when there will be a bunch of college girls there Heat probably won't bother me since I will be at the pools during the days.

k m8 just make sure you don't overheat. it's pretty much over 100 degrees for the next year or seven.

Also, if you're at a pool, bring lots of sunblock

Please do.

Oh and 50 miles from Ely, there is nothing.
There is Ruth to the west about 5 miles and McGill about 5 miles north-east.
Ruth is nothing but a few shacks and a massive open pit copper mine (although I dunno if the mine is still running).
McGill was where the smelted the copper.
Google Map Ely, Nevada.
"In the Middle of Nowhere" is a very apt description of where Ely is.

Vegas isn't that bad. I mean you're probably gonna be indoors most of the time so the weather doesn't matter and it's just dry heat which I find quite tolerable. I went often when I was younger but I was too young to drink or gamble there so I just ate good food and went shopping and watched shows at night. It was really fun.

The sidewalks are the grimiest I've ever seen though.
