Hmmm, what should we do in Vegas? Image courtesy of Digital Vision/Thinkstock.

I know what you’re thinking: “You’re kidding right?  Everyone knows what to do in Vegas.”  Well yeah, sorta.  I’m the kind of guy that likes to do it big in Vegas and I think the following tips will make your next Vegas experience a much better one.

Always do bottle service if you plan on going to a good club.

And try bring girls with you (see my previous wingwoman article).  In the event you don’t know any girls that want to roll with you before you leave, I’m sure there are going to be a few ladies in line just waiting for someone to get them in.

Bottle service is going to be pretty expensive – about $450 a bottle and they usually require about 3 people per bottle. This roughly translates to about $150 per person.  But trust me, it’s worth every penny for the following reasons:

  • You don’t have to wait in line
  • You get your own area where you can sit
  • Girls wants to hang out with someone that does bottle service
  • The waitresses that serve you are usually extremely, smoking hot

Always tip the security/door guys and especially the bus boys

I learned this one a little bit too late.  I was at a club with my wife and her friends and I did my usual thing – I tipped the security guy in my area and the bus boy before I started drinking  (just to make sure they were taken care of before I got too wasted to remember anything).  After a few minutes the security guy came up to me and asked me if I wanted him to bring girls over. What?!?

Yes boys, it’s true – if you take care of the security guys, they will bring over girls to hang out at your table to get free drinks and talk to you.  What happens after that is up to you.

As for the bus boys – they work their ass off every night.  Make sure you take care of those guys cause they earned it.

Gamble a little.

I wasn’t born a gambler, nor do I have the urge to throw down every time I see playing cards.  But I do feel that to have the true Vegas experience, you should gamble a little.  Make sure, however, that whatever money you plan to gamble, you plan to lose.  That will keep you from feeling bad when the dealer takes all of it.

For new timers or social gamblers, try Roulette.  I just learned how to play craps the last time I was there and it gets pretty fun.

Smoke a cigar.

I quit smoking 10 years ago, but something that is really fun to do in Vegas is to smoke a cigar – especially when you are in the VIP area – especially when the VIP area is somewhere at the top of a tall building.  You’ll feel like you’re a big deal, even if it’s just for the time you are there.
