it really depends on what you want to do.

if u like asian food, check out spring street. Raku has amazing robata tsukuneya. Lotus of Siam has a giant menu and is very cheap. Pho Kim Long is open 24/7 so you can grab some good Vietnamese food after the clubs.

Go to Ichiza on spring too, one of the most entertaining japanese restaurants I've been to in the US. Saw a drunk jap girl standing up on some german guy's chest while he was laying on a bench last time i was there. Go late.

Wait, unlimited beer? I hate buffets but i may have to try this.

Is it just crap beer or anything decent?

Will be fine dining quite a bit, but the fine dining scene in Vegas despite the big name chefs dont approach the level of Tokyo, SF, NYC, Barcelona, or Paris. Its pretty much dressed up chicken, beef, pork, safe seafoods like salmon, branzino, craziest thing maybe a sweetbread on a few menus. Would love to see some exotic heritage meats, some heirloom vegs, more offal. Even a overpriced sushi place that approaches the quality level of the cheap places in Tsukiji or department store sushiya would be nice.

i actaully think vegas is a great place to dine. ive been looped into going to some places that ride on some tv chefs rep but ive had some amazing meals. carnevino was fucking increible. and if you go after 9pm amd sit in the bar, food and wine is all %20 off. which is actually sweet if youre gonna be out al night to have a huge fucking meal that ends around midnight.

ive eaten at aureole twice and loved it both times. smith and wollenskys isnt exactly cutting edge, but its an experience in its own right.

i had the best pasta ive ever eaten at carnevino. lamb ragout. unbeleiveable. also, if you get in on the discount, theres a 2000 cain concept that comes out to about $80 and is fucking epic with red meat. i sent my brother there when he laid over n his bday and called the maitre d to comp his meal on my behlaf, they were so accomdating it was unreal. i fucking love that place.

check aureole. its pretty good for upper-middle-contemporary-french-leaning-nouveau-american-seasonal-all-truffle-everything cuisine.

I didnt like aureole, well the one in Manhattan anyways. I've eaten at Carnevino before, and it was great. The pasta at Scarpetta(Manhattan, not sure about vegas) is better, but for meats Carnevino is awesome.

I've eaten at scarpetta in Toronto and I have nothing good or bad to report. Maybe that's a negative reveie since they're expensive enough that at least one thing should have been memorable.

I stayed at the Flamingo GO rooms when I was there in April. Rooms were decent, clean and nice. Pretty new I guess. Paid only 45 or 50usd/night.

Stayed 2 nights at Flamingo 2 nights in MGM. Would love to try Wynn/Encore and Cosmopolitan.

Honestly, even if your not a club dude, just embrace that shit. In the end it will be more affordable than trying to hit places on the strip that are more cultural. It's either ball out or dive out and you can dive anywhere. Vegas needs to taken head on, as per the samurai code. If your not willing to pay it off for the next six months, you shouldn't be there.

yeah I see what your saying . There's no use to go to Vegas to be cheap and not experience all there is. hey some girl got laid out that night the police were chasing after the group of 5 girls who jumped her, And I ended up loosing my friends that night ended up finding them back at the hotel around 3 am Saturday night. That Cosmopolitan building looks crazy. well I might go back on the 28th for a friends birthday.
