In Vegas....What am I missing out on??

So here is the scenario. We arrived yesterday at the Mirage (monday) and leave Friday morning. I could use some help with adding some events or sights to the vacation checklist...in our mid 20's and money isn't something to prevent me from doing it...Already ate at grand lux cafe, went to industry night at XS, walked around the majority of the properties,(heading to city center today), saw the fountains and volcano, plan on going to happy hour at CUT, the secret garden, attending a Cirque show, heading over to moon/ghostbar, going to the gun store as well as the pawn shop...Plan on also eating at olives on the patio...What else should I include to make the trip memorable...I was thinking about going to mix for the sunset but besides that, I'm pretty much stuck on what else to do...I appreciate any input and look forward to great advice!

Have you found tme to fit in some gambling? Lounging by the pool with an exotic tropical drink? Deep fried twinkies and the light show on Fremont?

Since you are staying at the Mirage, check out LOVE. Very good show. Terry Fator is very good as well.

Thank you for the great advice...Unfortunately, renting a car is out of the question so I will have to venture off to the Dam and surroundings on the next trip....Deep fried twinks and Freemont Street sound worthwhile, and I was leaning on going to Love over Mystre and O.....And the whole pool/gambling thing is a given..It is las vegas baby....It is great to get such timely responses with a range of ideas

Drinking and lots of it. It will be cheaper and much funner in the long run.

Drink early, drink often.

Hit up Stack for happy hour/apps/tasting menu.

Look for the cute, blond, teenage hooker at the VP bar. Oh, better forget that one.

Rent a V.I.P. chair at the pool. $25 each and they wait on you hand and foot.

Kokomos is one the better, rarely mentioned restaurants.

DO NOT EAT ANY OMELETS IN CRAVINGS!!!

You've been there 1 day and you've already toured most of the hotels? One thing you are for sure missing- it's what I like to call 'chillaxin'.....Chill out, relax....sit by the pool, have a drink :)
