I'll be taking my son to Vegas in December as part of a promise I made to him years ago. I told him when he turned 21, I would treat him to a trip to Vegas on my nickel. I've been going to Vegas since the 1980's but have always stayed and played downtown (I'm a serious low-roller). However, I recognize the realities here and will be staying on the strip for my son's trip. Yes, I know gaming is (a lot) more expensive as are restaurants and other activities.
I currently have a room reserved at NY NY that includes two coaster tickets and a $50 bar credit. We'll be flying in on the morning of Sunday the 14th and flying out the evening of the16th (Sun-Tue).
Part of the deal is a dinner at a restaurant of his choosing. Any suggestions I can throw his way? Neither of us are "fancy dress up for dinner" people, some something a little more casual (khakis and open collar dress shirt) would probably be in order. I was also thinking of a show one night. What's the best stand-up comedy show in Vegas? Any other suggestions for a dad and 21 year old son (no, I'm not going to a brothel.....)?
As for gaming, he wants to play blackjack. Knowing that the $5 3/2 games are basically gone on the strip, where an I find $5 6/5 tables?
