Guys' Weekend in Las Vegas!

Written by Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

Is it time for a guys’ weekend Vegas style? Now, I know what you’re thinking…”WHY would we listen to a GIRL when it comes to planning a GUYS getaway?” Well, here’s your answer- “As a girl, I know what “us girls” THINK you’ll be doing in Vegas therefore I know how to plan a weekend that will leave little for your girlfriend/wife to question!” Yep, that’s right boys, you’re never as sly as you think you are BUT if you plan enough activities on your guys’ weekend in Las Vegas, you can fill in the “gaps” with whatever stripper fantasies and “harmless” flirting that you want.

First things first, hotel accommodations- stay on the Strip. I don’t care if you can get a hotel cheaper and are “willing to walk” to the action. The fact is, you’re going to be drunk…probably really, really drunk, and trying to find your hotel when you’re done partying will be challenging at best. Yes, there are plenty of taxis in this town but do you really want to drive in circles while they rack up some miles on the journey back to your hotel? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Now that that’s settled, the Venetian is a great hotel, convenient to most everything you’ll need for a guys’ weekend in Vegas!

Remember, planning LOTS of stuff to do is the key. Another area you, as men, fall short in is making the plans believable. I once had a boyfriend that told me him and his friends spent all day at the beach… yet upon his return he wasn't a shade darker than when he left! Let’s avoid all of that bizniz.

A round of golf at Royal Links Golf Club perhaps? If you don’t like golf, just say your friends do when you’re talking to your better half ;) This course is picturesque and designed by Perry Dye. You’ll get to sample eleven different British Open courses at Royal Links AND it’s open year round for your Vegas guys’ weekend!

Gambling should fill the bulk of your weekend? Right? Well, the gaps anyway. What’s the saying? “Six and one half dozen of the other”…basically all gambling venues are the same (for the most part) so picking where to park yourself and give away your money shouldn't be too hard! Be adventurous and try a new game. Craps is SOOO much fun and it’s not as complicated as it looks!

Legasse’s Stadium at the Palazzo is the ultimate sports bar experience for a guy’s weekend in Las Vegas. If you want to bet on Las Vegas’ teams this is the…oh wait, we don’t have any professional teams here (weird, I know)! However, if you want to bet on any of the other teams, this is the place to go! Complete with stadium seating and 100 HD televisions, you won’t be disappointed…not to mention, with Emeril Lagasse being the owner, the food is several steps above your run-of-the-mill bar food!

V Bar at the Venetian is the perfect ultra lounge to spend an evening. Sleek and seductive, this bar was voted the best bar on the Strip and is also a favorite of celebrities. Happy hour is 5-8pm…plenty of time to get nice and liquored up before the DJ starts and you’re drawn to the dance floor to bust out some of moves you haven’t done since the 90’s…maybe 80’s? They have a contemporary venue and if you’re staying at the Venetian you can easily stagger back to your room when you’re done!
