Vegas

Accepting it’s largely an expensive tourist trap, I still really enjoy this place - though I’ve only been twice. I’m sure there’s a few anons here who go multiple times a year. I’d be curious to hear what you do, how much you gamble, if you get comped sushi, and where you stay.

    If you live in southern California, you can fly for $100 roundtrip in 45 minutes, or make the drive in less than 4 hours. There's a lot to do off the strip that 99 percent of tourists don't do. Mount Charleston has some really good hikes and its usually 40 degrees cooler than the city. Valley of Fire State park is amazing. Red Rocks is also one of my favorite places to hike. If you're into rock climbing and have gear, you could spend several days climbing in Red Rock. There are also some really good slot canyon hikes with hot springs near Boulder City where you can hike down to the Colorado river and swim in hot pools. I usually stay at Planet Hollywood because they have large nice rooms for a good price. But, the parking situation sucks. You do have to walk a mile each way to your car in the parking lot. If you want to stay away from the strip, Suncoast Casino is always cheap and has good rooms. Chinatown in Vegas also has better Asian food than pretty much any city in the US. For gambling, you get more for your money downtown on Fremont Street. The best value in vegas is to pull up to the penny slots and drink all night for free at one of the Fremont street casinos of you have a good wienertail waitress.

    Other random fun shit in vegas, Cloud 9 Golf course, thrift stores in vegas are amazing, there are 9 free outdoor skateparks in vegas, go downtown to fremont on the weekends and watch free bands outside, the Eatily food court is amazing, the music scene is really good. You can also get to Zion National Park from vegas in about 2 hours if traffic is light.

        I'm curious to know about the buffay situation too. Back in the day we would go to an Asian one called "Krazy Buffet" and that shit was dirt cheap with like unlimited lobster legs for $8.75 or something.

        Wouldn't be surprised if everything's bloated to $25/person now. The casino buffets used to be cool too, Suncoast (the locals casino in Summerlin the other anon mentioned) had a good one actually, and also the Surf Buffet was another one my family would go to.

        The thing with Vegas is it's always changing and evolving, so things go out of date very quickly unless you get a true current local's knowledge.

          Buffets are disappointing now. Most just do a brunch one and all the high quality ones are so expensive that you may as well have a restaurant meal and order enough to stuff your face.

          MGM one was OK and the circus circus one is supposed to be good value. Ate at caesars and it wasn't worth the money.

          As with everything in Vegas now, there are no loss leaders, no attempt to butter you up so you'll spend more like there used to be. It's all openly ripping you off for everything and it leaves a bitter taste
          I went to vegas with a wallet I intended on emptying but the constant ripping off made me want to spend less.

          The less said about the terrible odds and (functionally) low volatility slots at the casinos the better.

              They used to not even let Sammy Davis Jr. walk through the casino floors for being the wrong color. That ended but the casinos still for a long time avoided offering things "urban" clientele was known to like. What really did it was covid coinciding with newly legalized weed and airlines offering cheap flights from southern cities where weed remains illegal and covid was not taken very seriously.

              In the early 2000's, you might see a few blacks on the strip on the weekends at night, but 90 percent of the people were white. Now, the strip is half black. Legal weed and $100 Spirit airlines flights from Atlanta brought all the nogs in.

              Buffets are going out of style. Only 4-5 remain on the strip and they’re all $60+ for dinner.

              The buffets aren't a great deal any more. Unless you weigh 300 pounds, you won't get your money's worth when they charge $70 per person. Get off the strip and go to Ichiza or Hachi. If you want to eat good fricking food and you don't care about a place looking fancy, Rollin Smoke Barbeque is fricking fantastic. Shish Kabob House is fricking flawless too. I eat there at least twice every time I'm in vegas.

Now the strip is 50 percent black. It all happened after legalized weed and $100 roundtrip flights on Spirit and Frontier from Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, etc.

                Vegas resident here. The only time I ever saw a ton of black people on the strip in the past was on NBA all-star weekend, or when some bug rapper was performing. The demographics on the strip have changed drastically. Every Friday and Saturday night on the strip in the summer it's primarily black. The crime has gone through the roof in the city. The drug stores lock up the toothpaste now. They try to hide the crime rates, but the murders tell the story. The murders in Vegas have doubled since 2019.

    I'm mid 40s. First time in Vegas was 2002. Didn't go back for almost a decade. Feel like I got the last 'old' Vegas feel early 00s, then going back in 2011 it was corporatized. I remember playing $3 blackjack/craps, getting unlimited free drinks and getting comped buffets for playing 2 hours of table games in 02, then in 2011 it was $15 blackjack minimums and you had to pay for drinks almost anywhere, no free food, etc. Vegas is getting less and less friendly for gamblers. They keep changing gaming rules to increase profit margins like 6:5 blackjack, no resplitting aces, dealer hits soft 17, craps 5x max odds, triple zero roulette and so on. I was single back then, now I'm married. My wife loves Vegas for the shopping, shows, and restaurants. She'll play some slots and maybe 10 hands of blackjack but doesn't care about gambling. She's the customer Vegas is after these days, not low limit gamblers like me who want to play cards for 4 hours while drinking shitty free rum & cokes.

    Shows are pretty dope though. I liked the Harry Potter one at Bally's, O, Absinthe, Ka, and forget the magicians but there's some good ones along with good resident comedians. Vegas also has a good music scene, concerts off strip almost every day. Most middle-big musicians/bands play a night or two in Vegas when touring.

    Honestly one of my favorite things to do in Vegas is walk around the strip or Fremont and people watch. You eat and drink so much it's good to walk a few miles every day. I always hear stories about hookers approaching men in casinos and on the strip, never happened to me. Stay away from strip clubs in Vegas...super hot women but they're a complete ripoff. $100 cover plus $15 beers and a lap dance is $200.

    Don't listen to the buffet haters. It may not be as good of a deal as before, but you need to hit up the brunch at either wicked spoon or wynn. Follow the buffet rule of avoiding carbs/filler until you've tried everything you want, and that $50ish bill will beat out even a $400 tasting menu just about anywhere.

      Vegas is very atomized. It's hard to make friends with people that have weird work schedules and chaotic lives. It's also a city full of people trying to get their life together, running away, looking for change, whatever. But it's easy to find things to do, there's always something going on and restaurants all over town serve hard liquor at 7 in the morning with breakfast for people who are just getting off work. It's also very transient. People constantly come and go, lots of people move to Vegas but few stay. It's too hectic of a city for me now. It

    I go 3-5 times a year on average. it "ticks all the boxes" for me on a vacation. Great food, great bars/lounges, gambling, women around, luxury hotels. I stay exclusively on the strip, nothing about downtown attracts me.

    I average about $30K coin in gambling per year (low roller) but that's still enough to get comped rooms and some resort credit and freeplay. On my upcoming Xmas trip I'm saving $2000 for everything over someone who has no casino status. Normally my biggest overhead is the flight, which is often less that $300.

    If there's one tip I always give people it's don't try to do Vegas on the cheap. I generally go for a week and try to have at minimum $1K spending cash per day. Sure you CAN cheap out, eat at Taco Bell and stay at Circus Circus and only gamble $5 here and there, but you aren't getting what you should be out of Vegas that way. Save up your money before you go, embrace the $70 steaks and $18 wienertails and nightly $45 resort fees and tip everybody like you're a baller. You will have so much more fun that way.

      What about this actually appeals to you? Totally serious. Everything about gambling is a huge turn off to me, the lights, the noise, the thinking about money and numbers constantly, the dimly lit smoky rooms... Maybe its the tiny fraction of israeli ancestry but I cringe tipping some loser whose job is handing people towels in a bathroom. There's nothing particularly satisfying to me about a $70 steak that's the same as a $50 steak in my hometown or an $18 manhattan with mid tier bourbon. It can't be for women, since it sounds like you have a girlfriend or something.

        I'm saying Vegas is an expensive place and if you choose to go there on vacation you should embrace that and be ready to drop coin. I'm not saying the steak or Manhattan are any better in Vegas than they are in your hometown, I'm saying they cost more, period. Stay in your hometown if you don't want to pay the premium.

        The most miserable people I see in Vegas, and this on every single trip I take, are the ones who are trying to count every penny. People who walk into a swanky lounge at the Wynn and ask "what's your cheapest beer?", or go to a fricking McDonalds there to despite being surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the world. There are plenty of places that you can do a cheap vacation. Vegas is not one of them. If you're cheap, don't come, you make it less fun for the rest of us.

          It's just bad planning on their part. You can get really good inexpensive food in Vegas....if you get off the strip. Le Thai downtown is less than $15 for a meal and the food is fricking amazing. The container park downtown has a bunch of really good, really cheap, food truck type places. You can walk in the stage door any night of the week and get a $1 beer and take it to the strip. Tony Roma's does a $9 prime rib special every day for happy hour. We did it once when we were day drinking and it was shockingly good. Literally every Ramen place on West Spring Mountain I've ever tried was incredible. There are at least 8 places in a one square mile radius with a 4.5+ on Yelp. There's also the tried and true method of walking into the Liquor store on Fremont Street and buying a $5 forty oz. They even give you a cup and open it for you.

          Even on the strip, you can get In and Out Burger and there are plenty of decent NY Pizza joints that are better than anything you'll get in most of the US.

Park for free in the Calico Basin parking lot and hike in that way. Gold Strike Canyon and Arizona Hot Springs are two other really good winter hikes in vegas to some natural hot springs.

    We had a couple of things planned for the drunk b***h's birthday so we went to the Peppermill for dinner, did an escape room, visited the Strat, went to Area 15, checked out the old Strip, and went to a local pizza joint. We're thinking for the next trip we'll see more shows like Cirque de Soleil and maybe Blue Man Group because why not.

      Luxury hotels are overrated. Stay at a mediocre place off the strip and spend all your time at the luxury casino if that’s what you want. You can usually purchase pool access for the 5 star properties. It’s not worth $200/night per person to stay at Venetian or Wynn when all you do in the hotel room is sleep

        I disagree with this. The shittier hotels in Vegas are dirty, smell like feet, and are full of bedbugs because they're full of black and mexican families that bring their own bedding and have 5 kids in the room with some sleeping on the floor making noise all night. And they're a long walk from the strip through pedestrian unfriendly parts of town or an expensive taxi ride. If you're going to stay at the Rio you might as well not even go to Vegas. Yeah the locals go to them but they get in their car and leave after their done with their buffet and cheap tables.

          I lived in vegas for 2 years. I've stayed at most of the casinos on the strip. The cheapest hotels in Vegas are all pretty bad. But they are exponentially worse on weekends. Maybe you can chance it during the week in the off season with a shitty casino. If you're going to go cheap, go mid tier cheap. Don't stay at the Rio, or Circus Circus, Excalibur, Luxor, Ellis Island, The Orleans, Siegel Suites, Budget Suites, Travelodge, or Harrah's. Don't stay anywhere off the strip on West Tropicana.

          The decent mid tier places are Planet Hollywood, Mirage, or the Golden Nugget if you want to stay on Fremont Street. Mandalay Bay is good in the summer for the wave pool. I almost always stay at Planet Hollywood because it's dog friendly and decent for the price. If you can get a good rate at Aria or Vdara, go for it. But you'll shell out $30/day to park if you have a car.

          The Suncoast is a good option is you want to stay off the strip and do some hiking in Red Rock or hike Mount Charleston. If I really want to stay cheap off the strip, there's always the dependable Hampton Inn in Summerlin.

    I love Vegas I go once or twice a year. I am a 39 year old single guy who manages a warehouse in a town of 400 people in the midwest. It is obvious I don't get out much, its a cheap big city destination far away from where I live.

    I watch for a >$200 round trip flight on allegiant and I can always find a cheap enough room downtown, my favorite places are The D and Golden Gate. I prefer downtown over the strip, less diverse and lots of fellow drunk midwest trash there. Never take an Uber, I buy a bus pass and take that everywhere. Good way to see the city and locals. Since I live in small town USA something as benign as chick fil a is fun to me, but I also like to hit up to trendy places on fremont street. Since I am autistic I do keep a spread sheet with notes on bubble craps at every casino I have been to, I am making a data base on the entire city. Also hit up the pinball hall of fame on the strip. It is hard to believe some thing like that still exists this day ion age.

      >bubble craps
      My stepdad is really into this. And regular craps. But he claims it's possible to beat bubble craps somehow by making a specific series of bets and comes home with money a lot so idk... Him and my mom are retired and moved to the Vegas area. I personally don't like visiting there or interacting with the locals but I can see why you do.
      Downtown has specifically tried to re-attract the working class white clientele that used to frequent Vegas by booking country and southern rock shows and avoiding even playing some other kinds of music, among other things. I do kinda like downtown. The off strip places market to Mexicans in California bringing a shit ton of them there. And the locals go to the Station casinos. Have you been to the neon museum? Or Area 15. It's kind of gay and weird but I think you'd like it.

        I don't know how, but bubble craps is totally rigged. The second I get greedy, and bet big with everything placed, I get 7. Every Time. Some places I win more consistently than others, and some places straight up rob you. Bubble craps at some shit midwest casino will rob you blind.

        I don't really go out to hook up, when I used to drink it would happen, but not so much anymore. I have dodged STDs my entire life and I don't want to get something from in vegas in my 30s/40s. I have considered paying for a rub maps account and look for a place to coom though.

        Do some bubble craps machines hit certain numbers more than others? What kind of sample size do you need to tell if a machine has tendencies like that

        The thing I watch for when I start playing it how hard the machine pops the dice in the air. If it gives a good hard pop, I will play it awhile and see what happens.

              Sounds like Spring Valley area? That area is pretty nice. There's "normal" hotels there like your Holiday Inn Express that's just a hotel if that's what you're looking for. Just pick somewhere that's close and has good access to amenities like food, especially if you don't have a car there.
              Could also stay at the Red Rock or some other casino in that area. It will be a "calmer" experience than the strip but will have casino amenities like restaurants and a pool.

              I guess I could tell you where not to stay. Henderson sounds too far. Avoid Northwest Las Vegas. Avoid the area within a few blocks west or east of the strip and I-15, places like the Orleans or Palms. And avoid the area around the airport. It's a rough area and planes come and go 24 hours a day, you will not sleep well.

      Ive never done Biloxi, but I lived in Vegas for 2 years, and I've visited AC and Reno multiple times.

      AC is a shithole. There's no reason to go. The crime is terrible, the casinos are terrible and old. There are better beaches down the shore.

      Reno is ok for 1 day. There are enough cool little breweries to go out for a night. The only reason to possibly stop in Reno is to stop in the Scheels Sporting Goods store on your way to Lake Tahoe. South Lake Tahoe is definitely worth going to in summer or winter. Go there instead.

      Vegas is Vegas. If you can't have fun in Vegas, you're either broke or you're boring. There's an infinite amount of shit to get into.

        For strictly gambling purposes I’ve heard good things mainly about freemont street in Vegas, and biloxi. Everyone seems to feel modern day AC is so trash that any decent gambling experience is ruined , and I’ve never heard much about the Reno gambling scene one way or another.

        When I say gambling I mean , decent house rules on the main games like blackjack, roulette , craps , a decent poker room and ideally lower minimums. A decent sportsbook would be a plus as well.

        Slots feel the same in every casino and I really don’t care for them. I just hate getting to a joint and seeing every blackjack table marked 50$ minimum.

          The table rules change a lot in Vegas. You have to google it. The best game you can play for odds is always going to be craps. Some of the strip casinos still allow 5x and 10x odds which is amazing for the player. Downtown, El Cortez, Main Street Station and the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino still do $5 and $10 craps with 10x odds. Finding a $5 table is nearly impossible at night or during peak season.

            Same with blackjack and roulette, low bet tables are usually off strip, but sometimes casinos will close those tables specifically during non-peak times. The Paris resort used to have single zero roulette but got rid of it. Don't play any triple zero roulette... I know roulette is considered a suckers game by hardcore gamblers but I think its fun. In Reno the downtown properties are sorta low rent but have a very old Vegas feel where you can still find loss leader stuff like a steak and eggs breakfast for like $4.99 (I forget the exact price but cheap) at the Cal Neva Club and find low minimum tables.

            I mainly see three blackjack games as “normal” in the casinos I go to

            1) low limit (usually 5-15$) 6-5 stand soft 17 games

            2) mid limit 6 deck (usually 25$) 3-2 stand soft 17 games

            3) high limit (usually 100-200$), dealer stands on all 17 blackjack (sometimes this is a double deck game)

            The genius in this setup for the casino is, blackjack is a game where you generally lose vs the dealer hand to hand and the only reason it’s a competitive game for the player at all is because of special situations (double downs, splits , blackjacks). When you up the table minimum you increase the odds someone will play 5-15 hands instead of 30-90 hands, reducing the odds of those split, double down, blackjacks occurring before the bankroll runs out. Also , you’re reducing the odds they will have the bankroll to properly play those hands as they occur. Stand around a 50$ blackjack table on a busy night and watch how often someone has a hand they should statistically double down on or split but don’t because they either don’t have the cash or don’t want to risk it.

      For starters, there's probably more casinos off the strip in Vegas than the 3 other cities put together. When you add the ones that are on the strip it completely dwarfs all the others. It just doesn't compare and Vegas is kinda overwhelming in terms of the number of things happening at any given time, that isn't the case anywhere else.
      Reno is much more like a normal middle America kind of place. It's like a Boise or Colorado Springs that happens to have a few casinos. They don't dominate what the area is about which is a mountain town very unlike the desert of Vegas. Reno was actually the major gambling destination until it was eclipsed by LV and some parts of town are old.
      Carson City is kind of the same but smaller and has some pretty small towns around it. The rest of Nevada is really empty. It's 100s of miles of empty land in every direction with an occasional small mining town or indian reservation. Biloxi is kind of trashy. It's where people from places like Memphis and Arkansas go on vacation. Mississippi as a whole is kind of a dump. Nice beaches but the water is kinda murky too, it's too close to the outlet of the Mississippi.
      Haven't been to Atlantic City but it looks like a has been kind of place. I don't like New Jersey in general and don't know why people live there.

      never been to any, but i'm originally from around biloxi.
      the mistake that people make is coming to enjoy the coast, rather than enjoy the barrier islands off the coast. spend a day to charter a boat or at least get on the ship island excursion for a day trip.
      the mainland beaches aren't great, but they're not brown because they're dirty. it's just the mighty mississippi bringing the silt and the barrier islands trapping it in. the first barrier island that you should visit would be the aforementioned ship island, because of fort Massachusetts. i loved that shit when i was a kid, and i was convinced that i would get married there. alternatively, get to cat island.
      i live in ohio now and know several people that absolutely love the beau rivage. it's probably the nicest. i've been there once as a teen, but only to get to the marina behind it with my dad to look at the yachts.
      as a young adult, i only ever went to the island view or the IP/imperial palace, just because they were a shorter drive.
      i guarantee you'll have a better experience at the GPT airport than any of the other three listed.

    The only thing my children will get is murdered. Kids deserve loving parents, which is why I'll never have any.

    Honestly I found Vegas to be a cheap vacation because I don't gamble. Only time I do is for free drinks, so it's more I'm paying for the drink and gambling for free. Though my kind of vacation is drinking while taking in the sites, and there plenty there to keep my magpie brain staring at shiny things. Shows and food are the things I spend the most on, but the mid-priced restaurants are the worst. Either find something cheap and good for $15 or go over $50 for an entree. I stayed at the holiday inn off the strip, but still walking distance and it was nice. Also got that for free for wasting my time at a timeshare. Renting a car and seeing the nearby features like Red Rock and the Hoover Dam was just as fun for me. Death Valley isn't too far but I didn't personally go there.

      It apparently works ~50% of the time but often when it does work you just get bumped up one level and it isn't worth the gamble unless you're staying more than a couple of nights. Obviously the casino managers know about this "secret" so there's probably a fairly fixed policy about what they're allowed to do. Guessing the casinos see it as a loyalty scheme and people on the front desk get suggested bumps that are worked out based on loyalty potential and how busy the casino is.

      Obviously takes a bit of confidence and I imagine a pleasant light hearted chat before doing it gets better results than acting like you're trying to score drugs.

        I've had the same level of luck just being nice to the person at the front desk and chatting them up (especially if they're a minority and probably get shit from a lot of customers) and asking for a specific upgrade. If helps if you know the hotel and what parts of it are upgrades, like saying you want a room in a specific tower. I've never given them money, it feels scummy.

    Vegas gets worse and worse every time i go.

        Like, are the illegals pimping out women using business cards?

          These things

          Someone pays scummy looking illegal squatamalans $2/hr to line the strip and hand them out all day long. They're kind of a novelty and honestly one of the less annoying scams/hustles in Las Vegas. They are kind of fun to collect and the dudes handing them out aren't agressive.

          They advertise "girls to your room" for a price but I've never called one. I've always had a girlfriend in Vegas or been able to pull ass without paying for it.

            I thought that was just something they did in Japan because I’ve been playing the Yakuza games lately, wild to think we do this in America too.

        Hands in pockets and keep on walking. Don’t make eye contact with any of them

          I usually at least don't make eye contact with any of the street hustlers in Vegas, but one time one of the show girl bawds slapped cuffs on me (I was drunk af) and demanded $25 for a picture to remove them. I gave her $3 and told her to frick off. My rule is don't interact with anyone who isn't wearing a resort name tag.

          I wish someone would do something about them, they're the worst.

    Everyone talks about Vegas prostitutes but isn’t the county that Reno is in the only place that they’re “legal?”
    Is it just that in Vegas they’re way more prevalent (and hot) and law enforcement turns a blind eye?

      Not Reno but all the low population rural counties of Nevada. Reno is closer to legal brothels than Vegas. The nearest ones to Vegas are up in Pahrump.

      Basically. Ads for escorts. It's not legal but is widely tolerated as long as they're not super obvious about it.

        That’s what I figured, bc everyone talks about Vegas like it’s a place to find the good hookers but I thought it wasn’t legal. Makes sense that they’re just getting away with it, I mean it is sin city.

          Some of them skip the cards middlemen and just sit in the casino bars waiting to get picked up like they were real.

            I wonder how the sales pitch goes. I’ll bet they let a dude think he’s got mega game before announcing their occupation and their prices.

      Legal brothels have some really hot hookers and get porn stars occasionally. You’re gonna be paying $700/hr minimum for most hot girls tho. Not worth it for me, I’d rather bang a drunk 6 on the strip

    I am going to the states next year, and the only place in my trip that Vegas fits in is June. is it worth going in Summer? Heard it gets super hot at that time?

      Yes, its hot af but also very dry. It won't cool down until well after midnight too. I wouldn't worry too much about it, the air conditioning inside buildings will be ice cold, pools will be open later, etc. Just be aware that walking around might be unbearable unless its well after dark or very early in the morning.

      It’s about 45 Celsius all summer and extremely dry. It’s hard to stay hydrated. If you’re gonna go to a pool don’t stay out there too long

      Forgot to add summer is often slower in Vegas so you can prob get better hotel rates

      Just walk through the casinos instead of walking outside and being harassed by the dregs of society. The casinos will be like 65 degrees. Don't drink so much that you get hungover and dehydrated and you'll be fine.

    Spotted on the strip near Paris a couple nights ago, better environmental storytelling than Dark Souls

      A jello shot novelty syringe and an empty bottle of liquor?

      I'm pretty sure i saw a fentanyl addict OD in front of Paris last time i was in Vegas

        To me it looked like the leftovers of a vodka buttchug in public, and of course there are the usual fent zombies roaming around - that wasn't a monocle pop moment, it was a laugh.

    Anybody got a step by step guide on how to get married on a whim in Vegas? Spontaneous Vegas marriage. That's my goal. Pointers? Thanks.

        You can plan for spontaneity dipshit. For example, you want spontaneous things to happen, first you step out of the door and allow for the opportunity to arise. Just because you don't have the answer doesn't mean you have to be a gimp about it.

        Nice, this seems like a fairly sound strategy. I'm not much a hunker down in one spot type myself but can see how this would work.

    Is there anywhere similar to Vegas 25 years ago? More of a gambling town where they'll comp booze and food if you play blackjack for a while? My grandparents tell stories about how amazing Vegas was in the late 70s, early 80s when the mob ran it and everything was cheap

      prob not because gambling isn't the main source of revenue for towns with legal gambling anymore

      25 years ago was 1998, which happened to be the first time I went to Vegas. That was during the brief period when Vegas was trying really hard to be family-friendly: Treasure Island still had the pirate battle show, Planet Hollywood was still Aladdin and Siegfried and Roy were alive. Also, I went there two weeks after Bellagio opened and the buffet was fantastic.

        1998-2003ish was definitely peak Vegas for deals. No parking fees, no resort fees, insanely cheap buffets and free shows on the strip, $40 rooms. It was also a lot lot whiter back then. You rarely saw nogs on the strip.
        But There are some new things in vegas that I like. The Chinatown area is really built up now. Spring Mountain has some of the best asian food in the US. Downtown is also pretty amazing now. There are free bands playing every weekend and it gets fricking wild at night. The shopping is better now too. All the new malls, the Linq, the outlets, the Eataly food court, the container park, neonopolis. Honestly, the best place to grab a deal on the strip is at the giant fricking Ross they just built. I snagged $240 Nike Storm fit jacket for $60 last month.

          Harrahs/Caesars had no resort fees up until like 2010. I once got 3 nights at IP for like $150 (I wasn't rated high enough to get a free Saturday room)

      Reno isn't nearly as gambling centric as Vegas but downtown Reno definitely has that vibe you're talking about. Smoky, boozy, seedy, and still some cheap enticements to be had. Pawn shops and free wienertails. Rooms can be like $20 booked in slow periods but they tack some fees on. Still kinda black these days tho. The other parts of town/other resorts aren't like that. That's really Vegas pre-90s though. Reno is undergoing a lot of redevelopment and probably won't be like that long. Go to the Gold and Silver Inn to get drunk while eating breakfast at 3 pm.
