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.

Some stuff I enjoyed:

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 Fountain in front of the Bellagio. I wanted to see it after seeing it in Ocean's Eleven w/ Clooney & Co, and it did not disappoint, and the garden they have inside is actually pretty cool.

I also enjoyed the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum @ The Venetian.

Seconded on the Bellagio fountains. Free entertainment right there, and not too far a walk from the Tropicana. Plus there's the Miracle Mile shops across the street.

The "Bodies" and "Titanic" exhibits at the nearby Luxor are pretty cool too.

If nothing else, just get out and walk around. The Strip is one of the best places in the world to people watch.

It's a bit of a walk, but I really recommend Ellis Island Casino & Brewery. Great ribs, and excellent beer.

The show at Treasure Island is free and kind of fun.

And some very good karaoke!

Sadly, I'll just miss you as I arrive in LV on the 24th.

Let me know if you see something I can't miss!

Aw man, now I'm tempted to try to put something somewhere in a Casino to see if it is still there two days later.

Anyone got any ideas?

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.

I hadn't heard anything, so I had to look it up:

Las Vegas Strip shootout

What struck me the most from the article:

"Two people were critically wounded in a shooting at a parking garage 6 February, and a tourist was stabbed in an elevator at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay on 16 February."

Hey, guess where I'm staying next week? Woohoo.

I haven't seen it but the nutrition/supplement store I go to doesn't carry Wieder's overpriced junk. Is it like Red Bull? Because if it is, that's illegal in Canada so that would be why I haven't seen it anywhere.
