I have to go to Las Vegas Sunday for a trade show. I've been there MANY times, so as far as I'm concerned, since I'm going to be by myself, I might as well be in Ames, Iowa. I'm SO not looking forward to it.

However, I'll have most of Thursday and Friday to do whatever I want, and I'll have a rental car. (I have to drive to LAX Sunday to fly out, thus the need for the car...yippee....) Anyone got any suggestion on what to do for those two days?

I guess I am of the opinion that fun is fun. Go to the Marti Gras at the Mandolay bay - I always think that's fun.

You want interesting head out to the Air Force Base and see if you can get yourself arrested for driving into Area 51. Now, that would be fun - except for the cavity search.

It really depends on what you're looking to do.

Are you looking to gamble, hit some bars, or just tootle around town?

You could probably blow both days hanging around Steve Wynn's new monstrosity of a casino, which just opened. That place is supposed to be HUGE.

I've heard that the thrift shops and used records stores have some amazing finds if you look around enough. I've always wanted to do that, but the debauchery has always distracted me.

I hit the records stores during one of my college trips and found that Vegas isn't much better or worse than any other big metro, but my tastes ran pretty esoteric back then.

Now, the PAWN shops...

It is enormous. I know this because right before it opened I was there (in January) and I walked completely around the perimeter of it due to a tactical error. Actually, now that I think again about it I walked half-way around it, then caught a cab to get back to where I was. (It was a REALLY BAD error, but Sands Ave. was closed to pedestrian traffic so I had to decide to cut through the Venetian or go around. I shoulda cut through the Venetian.) It's really cool and different and kind of like this big bronze monolith.

I think I may hit up Hoover Dam, actually. I have to fly out of LAX on Sunday, so I'm not really digging the thought of a bunch of driving and the website said that it's only about 30 minutes away.

JJD, I've heard (via the Travel Channel) that there's an amazingly good Thai restaurant somewhere in town. The locals know all about it. My girlfriend and I are the only two who actually like Thai food in the group we head to Vegas with, so I've never tried it. And we have amazing Thai restaurants in SB anyway...

I guess I should have specified genre. Jazz and blues, I've heard from friends who know the genre, you supposedly can find some pretty decent and hard to find albums.
