I will be in Las Vegas, walking distance from the Tropicana, for 12 days. I'm not getting a car. I'll have from 6pm to 8 am open, but I'm in a training class each day for 10 hours and want to learn what I'm there to study.
If you had 2 free nights in that set-up, what would you do?
I'll be there 2/10 - 2/22 if that helps.
I think I'm probably going to be watching Netflix in my hotel room, but I'd hate to miss a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The dolphin exhibit at the Mirage (closes at 5pm) The aquarium/shark tank at The MGM Grand. The lions above the gift shot at The MGM Grand The Price is Right stage show at Bally's (I think It only runs in the afternoon to early evening) The Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. Run by Hubert Keller and has great burgers and a huge selection of international beers. http://www.burger-bar.com/lv_main.php You can not go wrong with any of the Cirque shows (they are pricey). Ka is martial arts inspired (with a 360 degree rotating stage), O is water based and part of the stage is above a water tank that is part of the show. Mystaire is a classic circus show (as seen in Knocked Up), and Zumanity is their topless show for couples.

The show at Treasure Island is free and kind of fun.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

It's a bit of a walk, but I really recommend Ellis Island Casino & Brewery. Great ribs, and excellent beer.
And some very good karaoke!

If you have money, you have to do the Bachanal buffet at Caesar's Palace. It's 50 bucks, but it has the best food ever. Of particular note is their brisket and especially the Rib Eye steak. There were lines for those cuts of meat, at a BUFFET, so that should tell you something.

Uh....yeah. Daredevil, Spider-Man & Batman are all about guilt. That's what drives the stories. Superman is about finding a place you fit in, and acceptance. X-Men to a lesser extent, too. The Hulk is about repression.
