Bradley Ogden-Caesar's

Don't eat lunch enough in Vegas to say


Room Service

Sports Book at Bally's

Jersey Boys

Sam's Town (off Strip), or Main Street Station (downtown)

Bellagio Fountains

Never done a happy hour

relax by the pool with a drink in hand

Miracle Mile@Planet Hollywood, or Forum Shops at Caeser

The night that I had 30$ left at the craps table, and just bet the pass line ;built up enough chips to make other bets, and ended up staying up til 7 a.m.; and more than 800$ in chips! That was a blast!

My first moments in Vegas, seeing the strip for the first time, and having a beer at the brewery @ Monte Carlo waiting for our room to be ready to check in.

Sioux Falls, South...

1. Joel Robuchon at the MGM or Picasso at Bellagio

2. Peppermill's for hamburgers or Blueberry Hill (off Strip) great for lunch.

3. Hash House a go go far surpasses the average breakfast.

4. Bar? Wherever the best happy hour is. See:


5. Cirque du Soleil, KA, LOVE, and surprisingly Frank Marino's drag show "Divas Las Vegas".

6. Lowrolling? Downtown.

7. Viewing spot, if not from our hotel room then the Voodoo Lounge on top of Rio.

8. Thing to do, for first timers, DO make the effort to see Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire.

9. Shopping? Not a priority. Plenty of that here in Florida but if I need something, I'll go to Macy's at Fashion Show Mall


10. Most memorable day or night, hmmm, you know, it's just being there to enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of Las Vegas with my wonderful husband of twenty-eight years. THAT, money just can't buy.

Have a fabulous time and best wishes for making your own favorite list.
