Enjoyable read. I'd like to emphasize number 2. Men think they don't have to worry about an unattended drink, wrong!!! Waking up somewhere with your valuables gone is a bad feeling. This kind of thing happens in sin city all the time.
Thanks for reading!
Good overview to read a few days before "zero hour" to gather your thoughts towards a successful getaway instead of the "get me the hell out'a here" syndrome. Usually i hear tribal drums a couple of days prior to flight time... Remember to be cool and enjoy yourself, don't sweat the small stuff, BUT maintain "situational awareness".
Room # photo is smart. I take a photo of my car park spot all the time (mall, zoo, airport, casino, whatever).
Yes, foot wear is important. I prefer flip-flops and Crocs (with socks). It might be a fashion-fail but you are correct, nobody cares. Possibly nice shoes and dress for maybe a short night at a $25 craps table in a fancy strip property; a night of strolling around high end shops, feeling rich while bein' poor.
I wouldn't warn anybody off the porn slapper cards. They deserve what they get.
Last couple of trips I managed to get away for a day trip to some national parks. It really added another facet to the whole Vegas experience; not all gambling, lights, and manufactured landscapes. A break in the middle to unwind a different part of your brain. DO get out for a bit but DON'T drive away without a plan; you might end up aimlessly tooling around staring at depressed housing or loooong stretches of unremarkable desert beside the highway. So in a way I am also saying talk to some of those people selling things (except timeshare guys...) just because they are part of Vegas as much as you are part of your home town/city/place of work. After saying "not interested" I managed to get a little no pressure chit-chat about someone else's Vegas experience from the "inside". I guess it come from having to work crappy jobs in the past.
"dress" as in "dress clothes" not "a dress". Just to be clear.
