Eh, not even baseball compares to the snail's pace at which golf occurs. That being said, I won't watch any of them.

I can definitely play a round of golf, but it's just not suitable for a spectator sport IMHO.

Looking to book a weekend vacation in Vegas in June for my 30th, with just the wife. Too much damn stuff to sift through to find the middle ground between affordable and good quality.

Edit:
Children of the Bourne? Does that mean it's a spy movie where the camera work is really shaky?

Talk to Clock and/or Buck. IIRC they've both been out there multiple times and could probably help point you in the right direction. Also I think Clock has a buddy who lives out there.

I can give you our own basic strategy, but obviously your tastes may vary.

- Keep to the middle of the strip (we always stayed at Planet Hollywood, great location, great buffet, good show choices / mall, right across from Bellagio) so you don't have to take cabs all over the place. The steak place at Planet Hollywood is amazing.
- Many resorts have cool exhibit things that aren't uber expensive. Stuff like aquariums, tiger exhibits, the Mirage volcano, and my favorites, Body Worlds and the Titanic Artifact Exhibition at Luxor. If you want to just walk the strip, doing those and meandering through the malls / resorts and appreciating the amount of money that people have lost in paying for it all is impressive.
- There are almost always sales on Cirque tickets, if that's what you're into. We love the shows, though. Oh, "Lion King" was also awesome.
- Every time you pass the Margaritaville on the strip near Bally's, stop, duck in, acquire one Ultimate Margarita, continue.

That's about it!

And if it's just you and your wife, definitely play "window games".

Dude, that's actually a lot of help, thanks! Though I feel like I'm going to start having to pay you for information soon

Tic-tac-toe is a two person game, I guess. It seems like a pain to keep breathing on the window, though.

Window games do require breathing on windows, true.

Can't comment I have never been because I haven't heard anything good about it. I did goto Rick's Restoration though (free and need a car/taxi) was pretty cool. They gave us a tour (kinda short) and told us some stories about some of the projects.

There's always a line outside the pawn shop, so there's that to consider. Could go to Count's Kustoms, too.

I'd skip on Kount's Kustoms as it isn't very impressive.

Anyways, I go to Vegas about every other month depending on what is playing / showing there, and agree with Clock that staying in P-Hollywood is a good idea as its smack dab in the strip so you don't need to take cabs everywhere.

As for things to do, it just depends on your tastes as there's literally something for everyone. I don't think I even gambled my last couple times there as I was running around with a couple 1st timers that wanted to see everything.

I should also mention that a cab ride to Old Vegas (Freemont) is definitely a fun evening out. Very old school and the giant "ceiling" over the street is quite entertaining.

We just went down there for the first time (in January) make sure to go at night. We went during the day and it was a ghost town. (went back at night after a show down there)
