Went last year with my friend to celebrate OUR 50th birthdays. Stayed at MGM. You will have a GREAT time. We saw Rita Rudner (who I THINK is at Harrah's now, not sure) and was a perfect show for two 50 year olds, as that is kind of what her show centers around. Go to Mac King at Harrah's (afternoon show) great to sit down in the middle of the afternoon with a drink and watch a great, hilarious show. Our favorite restaurants were Emeril's at MGM and Mandalay Bay buffet for King crab legs and prime rib. Have a great time!

I was looking forward to seeing Big Elvis at Bill's Gambling Hall as a free spectacle a few weeks ago. Unfortunately he was ill, so show was off. But look out for it - supposed to be very good.

Flamingo has Margaritiaville which is a fun place and reasonable. Also the Cheesecake Factory at CP. O'Shea's for cheap drinks and betting. Harrah's has a great buffet with a lot of selection of good food and deserts. I agree to check out the Mac King show at Harrah's in the afternoon, it is a great and funny show Go up the Eiffel Tower at Paris . Ellis Island has the 6.99 steak dinner which is good and reasonable. Walking around in the Forum to do some shopping and dining.

Wife's 50th was last year. Enjoyed MamaMia at Mandalay Bay. Discount tickets can probably be had. (Maybe do a search in the search box, because the question has been asked recently)

Also enjoyed Rita Rudner. She's at Harrahs.

Do you need a budget dinner place for your friend?

I loved the food at Emerils, but it is a bit pricier than others you can find.

Oct 4? Nice planning ahead! lol

At least it's not Oct 3! Maybe we could do Emerils one night if we could do a budget place the others--anyone have recommends?

Anyone know how NY NY will respond if we call about making sure our room is good . . . have read very mixed reviews!

Never stayed at NYNY, but when we stayed at MGM the room wasn't great, and we called down and did get moved to a better one (the one we had hadn't been cleaned properly.) It wasn't an upgrade, but we were satisfied. So, maybe you will at least not get stuck in a bad room. If you go to Emeril's, be SURE to save some room for the banana cream pie!

Here's a good website for free attractions. But then you can look at all the other fun stuff to do, also!

Take one evening and take the Duece downtown. You can get a 24 hour pass for $5. There are plenty of things to see and do downtown that are free/cheap. If you look at the lasvegasadvisor or cheapovegas websites they have all kinds of cheaper eats listed.

NYNY has the dueling painos if you like that kind of thing and its fun. Just visiting all the hotel/casinos is free and a great thing to do.

ComedyStop at the Tropicana is a great time. Tickets are only 19.99 and they include a drink. We laughed really really hard - great way to spend a couple of hours.
