Yes, if you want to watch old men getting carried away by call girls then you should try playing blackjack at the Flamingo after 2am.  If you leave the table before sunrise run quickly out the door so you do not get accosted.  That place feels like a hooker convention after 2am.

Other than that you don't need to plan a whole lot in Vegas, other than maybe the exotics racing.  If you are looking for it then that city has it's ways of delivering "adventures".

Hopefully that's 4 cars at 5 laps each.  It would be a shame to do 20 in just one car. 

You can also try shooting some machine guns.  I went to machine gun vegas, hot girls and big guns.  Good enough for me but there are cheaper places.

If you wanna hit up a strip joint, try glitter gulch on Fremont for a great laugh.  The strippers can be vultures so be prepared.

I agree on the exotic cars as a must.  The Glitter Gulch is a money pit, and nothing special for girls.  However like he said if you want a laugh, it just may be an expensive laugh.  2 drink minimum = $20 and the girls are on ya in like 5 minutes tops haha yikes.

For an amazing meal and great party/dance location I really enjoyed the Voodoo Steak Lounge it's the top floor of the Rio so it's off the strip, but the dance floor and bar is roof top.  Great View

If "Rock of Ages" is still happening I highly suggest it. Doesn't quite follow the movie, so its a great new experience.

Since you are at the MGM, I would suggest seeing KA, which is the Cirque show there.  It has a moving platform as their stage and is quite impressive.  It is great to see a show when Cirque has purpose built the theatre around it.

If you're looking for great hangover food, check out Hash House a Go Go in the Imperial Palace. Biggest portions I've ever seen.

Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

+1...Strange name, great food.
Also check out an In-n-Out burger if you've never been. So simple, yet so delicious.

well vegas was awesome, the weather was amazing all 4 days 20-25 degrees. first day we went and saw the blue man group, they put on an even better show than the last time i saw them. a few short hours after that i turned 21, walked down to the casino and won $1000 in roulette, saddly i went all the way back down to $300. the next day we took a nice drive to the hoover dam and checked that out, on the way back we stopped at an outlet mall and did some shopping, dinner that night was at the itallian place at MGM called fiamma, it was alright. saturday followed with nice breakfast at avenue 24, headed down to the Strip gun glub, the building inside was very nice clean and the staff was extremely freindly. i picked out my package whicj included, s&w .44magnum, FN hershtal P90, Kriss superV, belt fed M60, and a .308 sniper rifle. the most badass day ive ever had, and not bad shooting for my first time shooting a gun. sunday we drove to the valley of fire, very neat place to go check out. on the way back from there we stopped at the exotics racing tent at the LV speedway, where i got to drive a 458, R8, and at GT-R. that was awesome. i think maybe i should start saving for my own R8. that night i got to experience the best meal of my life at joel robuchon, which i will be posting a full review in a seperate thread. fun trip, although getting home was a journey. flight was delayed leaving vegas which made us miss our connecting flight in LA, which then we needed to fly to denver then back to calgary.

I personally didn't like the R8.  458 hands down is the better car IMO.

Got to drive the MB SLS and 458 when I was there.  I initially chose the GTR but it was in for maintenance so I had to choose between the SLS, Vantage and R8.  Chose the SLS as I've driven the vantage and R8 in Calgary already but not on the track.  So I chose the SLS just because I'm able to say I've driven more vehicles hahaha.  Definitely loved the 458, it was like a go-cart, very responsive in every way.  The SLS was just a torque monster with no weight on the rear wheels so it easily kicked out.  The seating position in the SLS with a helmet on pushes your head forward was a little uncomfortable as well.  I drove the 458 with the tan interior which was ripped lol.  The sound of that thing is amazing, I hope you bought the video of your drives.  If you didn't they can always send it to you later, my friends did that.

You should've gone to rhino hahha lots of fun there too.

I picked the GTR as well but it also was in for maintenance.  I ended up picking the R8.
