    Do yourself a favor and go see the Titanic exhibit at the Luxor. Its easy to catch before you leave, its close to the airport.

    I saw the Titanic exhibit. VERY cool. THey had a HUGE iceburg in there that you could touch and they said the water was colder than that. Amazing......

    Take the Dam Tour.

    Road trip to the Valley of Fire. Be sure to take SR 187 (aka Northshore Rd) to get to and from there if you want the scenic curvy drive. I-15 is just plain boring.

    Have breakfast at the Peppermill Lounge. Order a bloody mary with your meal. Yes I said breakfast.

    For your Dive Bar needs: The Laughing Jackalope. And I quote from the reviews, "This place is a dump!" Don't order the food. Really.

    For GREAT beer: Hofbrauhaus. Order the dunkle lager. Stay for a meal.

    The bar at the Peppermill is a cool place just to hang out and have a couple as well.......
     
  9. When that exhibit was in OKC, we went, and I told my sister that was a piece of the actual iceberg that sunk the Titanic... she was like "Reeeealllly??" :D

    I'm fond of the Roulette tables myself. PM me for a strategy that hasn't failed me yet. "Yet" may be the key word. ;)
     
  12. My in-laws are there, avoid them at all costs. Definitely do the peppermill. Get an omelet.

    For some reason no one ever takes me up on the offer to clean my shop while visitng.. Im always up late working....Weird.
    The Tattoo convention at the Mandalay looks interesting. I may stop in on that.
    The "Dive Bar" the "Double Down" or the "Tiki Longe" are always on the list.
    The Imperial Palace auto collection.
    You may be able to get a private showing of the Art Goldstrom collection.
    The "BODY" exhibit is also still going on.

    When i was down there a few months ago with the wife, I took her to the Beatles "Love" Cirque du Soleil. It was pretty cool. But I really like the Beatles. You can get tickets really cheap if you get them the day of the show.

    If you see a crazy 78 year old man groping young women it's probably my publisher. He'll be there for the Mario Barth Tattoo Convention. He'll be there tomorrow. None of us get to go. We'll just be slave driven in out dark and miserable office. Have fun!!!

    I would like to, but it's not running yet. Now the '26 is good to go but by the time I get there I will have to leave. I will live through the pictures I guess.
     
  19. No, they say that women are the fairer sex.

    I'll get lambasted for saying this, but I think the Cirque du Soleil shows are neat; Ka has some pretty impressive (from an engineering standpoint) moving platforms utilized throughout the show.

    The Titanic and Bodies exhibits are neat.

    Since you'll be in training courses and what-not during the day, some of the day-trip type suggestions might be difficult to pull off (Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire).

    A lot of it depends upon your budget, though. Shows can quickly be knocked off the list if you can't spring for the tickets (although, the day-of discounts can help).
