As I get ready for my trip to LV in exactly two weeks, I have been reading this forum to get keyed up and jog down some tips to make the most of this year's trip.
One thing nobody has mentioned is the Hofbrau Haus. This is a real German Beer Garden. It is the only Hofbrau Haus outside of Germany and it is WONDERFUL !
Huge steins of their own beer, great German food, and a live "OMPA" band. It's loud, unhealthy, and the server girls all have ample bossums !
If you need a cool place to go off the strip for a different type of experience, check it out. I loved it
