A Beginner’s Guide to Las Vegas

Last summer got a little crazy…moving within driving distance to Vegas was beyond dangerous. I racked up 6 trips in one summer and I can not get enough of sin city. I have to bring in a professional for this one. To the girl who got all of our friends obsessed with the pool parties, sleepless nights and hangover brunches at the Bellagio….meet Andi Zitney (she just so happens to be my roommate. How convenient right?!). For this blog post I decided to ask her some questions for those of you who have never been to Vegas or want to test out the adult playground the way my friends and I do…Enjoy and be safe!

M: When was your first trip to Vegas?

A: My 21st birthday was my first adult weekend in Vegas.

M: How many time have you been to Vegas?

A: (she’s laughing actually thinking about it) 30+. It’s an easy trip because I have a house there.

M: Although, I know you don’t stay on the strip much. What is a good hotel/location for going out?

A: MGM is always going to be great spot, because it has a night club and day club. It speaks to a younger crowd. I would stay away from the North end of the strip. You will constantly be making your way back to the middle.

M: What is your favorite restaurant on the strip?

A: High Dollar STK in the Cosmopolitan-$$$$ and Culinary Dropout- $$

M: Buffets are a must do. Top 3?

A: Bellagio, Caesars Palace, and The Cosmopolitan

M: What has been your favorite show? Why?

A: Cirque du Soleil- O Show. You could go with your grandma or friends. It is all around a good show. The hypnotism shows are fun too. Also, I would check out if there are any concerts in town.

M: If you are 21 and going to Vegas for the first time what night clubs do you recommend?

A: Hakkasan in MGM, XS in Encore and 1 Oak in the Mirage.

M: Day clubs?

A: WET REPUBLIC! The only place you need to go.

M: Do you recommend getting onto guest lists? What about for guys?

A: If its a slow weekend yes, but for big weekends like Memorial day, fight weekends or labor day I would recommend buying tickets for big names. Usually you can tell by a well known DJ. Guest lists can get up to a 4 hour wait and they can’t promise you on getting it. Guys…sorry…no.
