Short B-day trip for Alice - What should I do?

I'm going to take a VERY SHORT solo trip Feb 5-7th which is just a couple days after my birthday. I'll be staying comped at Bally's. This will be a Strip trip since I just did Downtown in December.

I'd love to get suggestions from you all for things to do while I'm there for 2.5 days. There are so many people on this forum who have met me and/or have read my TRs over the years, I figure you guys could come up with something interesting for me.

I'd like suggestions for:

~One fun show (less than $100 ticket and no Cirque or "Broadway", please)

~One nice non-buffet lunch or dinner on Friday (under $50 - think like Palm at the Forum shops for example)

~One nice brunch buffet on Saturday morning (not Paris or Wynn - been there, done that.)

Sock it to me, people! T-21!

I really enjoy the Legends show too, fellow Aquarian! Deliciously cheesey and it comes with an umbrella drink!

Go see Bob at Bill's Bar.

Hmm, birthday dinner for me would be Olives. Fabulous! If you can get Paul as your waiter on the patio, BONUS! He is just the coolest.

Saturday brunch buffet - The Trifecta at the Double Down Saloon. A can of Schlitz, a shot of A$$ Juice and a Slim Jim! What more could any birthday girl want!

Don't need to tell you to have a blast, you shall!

Ledgend's is a good idea. I have seen that once and would consider going again depending on who the acts are.

I will pass on the Schlitz, but Olives sounds good. Thanks, girls!

Keep the ideas coming...

I'm with the others on Legends and with Foxy on the Olive's meal, if not dinner then go for lunch. Sorry, can't help with the buffet thing, only one I've ever had was at Bellagio and it was very good.

Lucky you, have a fabulous birthday and a wonderful trip to Vegas!

Hey Alice,

Would you check out Cafe BabaReeba? They are supposed to have a good happy hour and the food has gotten some good reviews. The reviews of the weekend buffet at the Palms has been written up in LVRJ and LV Weekly as very good.

Alice

I would go see Carrot Top- he was hysterical.

I would have lunch at Capital Grill at the Fashion show mall.

How about brunch at PH- great chanmpange- loved the fresh cooked to order waffle and tri tip.

Dont get me started on their dessert selections.

Have fun.

I cant help with shows or lunch, but I say the Mirage Buffet has to be one of my new favorites!! I have eaten there for lunch and dinner this year and really enjoyed both meals.

My idea of a show would be Terry Fator at the Mirage. Not usre what the prices are now that he has moved from the Hilton, but his show is teriffic!

Can't help you with food.

happy Birthday!

Marge
