That's What You Get For Waking Up In Vegas....

My 27 year old son goes to Vegas at least 4 times a year to get his fix. Here are some of the places I love to go:

Mandalay Bay.

The rooms and the environment are not only stunning but the restaurants are hard to top: Mix,Fleur de Lys, Aureole, China Grill, Shanghai Lilly, Red Square, Trattoria Del Lupo, rumjungle, Rick Moonen's RM Seafood and STRIPSTEAK. Take your pick---all of them happen to be spectacular. The highlight: Mandalay Bay Beach is a world-famous playground offering a wave pool, lazy river, three swimming pools, a jogging track and 2,700 tons of real sand. The May through September Beach Concert Series features some of the top names in music as guests are serenaded from a one-of-a-kind stage above Mandalay Beach.

The Palms: Playboy Club, Moon, Ghost Bar, Rain… the Palm’s has it all when it comes to late night entertainment and the rooms are deluxe. You simply cannot find a higher end value for the price. Up to three thousand guests can party in style at the pool, enjoying live concerts, DJs and three bars. Wish this place had been around when I was Tommy's age.

The Burger Bar. I ate here almost every night when we were in Vegas for ArenaBowl. The grilled food was superb and you could get in and out in a matter of an hour. The bartenders were fun and the beer and burgers don't get any better than this! In Mandalay Place, there is a wide selection of meats from Angus, turkey, lamb, vegetarian and even buffalo and amazing toppings. Never tired of the food and I ate there a lot.
