Finding treats isn't tricky in Vegas

If you're a little too old to go door-to-door in costume asking for candy this Halloween, don't worry - Las Vegas has plenty of adult "treats" awaiting you during Howl-O-Weekend.

JeanSatisfy your sweet tooth with a bevy of tasty desserts - the famed junk food platter at Simon Restaurant and Lounge inside Palms Place features the celebrity chef's miniature takes on cupcakes, snowballs and krispy treats, and caramel popcorn, tiny sundaes, milkshakes and cotton candy. You can also get yummy gourmet chocolates at Ethel M Chocolates and indulge in savory desserts at Jean Philippe Patisserie inside ARIA and Bellagio, as well as the Sugar Factory at Paris Las Vegas.

But there's much more to Howl-O-Weekend in Vegas than tasty treats. How about a little eye candy? Catch the seductive sensuousness of Fantasy at Luxor or enjoy the buff beefcakes of Thunder From Down Under at Excalibur. Then, join in on any of the sexy Halloween costume parties at Vegas nightclubs.

If you'd rather see tricks, you'll find those in Vegas, too. See masterful magic and mystery at Illusions starring Jan Rouven at the Riviera or Penn & Teller at the Rio All-Suite Hotel.

HowlPrefer some good ol' Halloween scares? Have no fear - Eli Roth's Goretorium is one of Las Vegas' newest happy haunts. Other Howl-O-Weekend experiences include Oktober FrightFest downtown at the Fremont Street Experience, Will You Make It Out Alive at Madame Tussauds "After Dark?" inside The Venetian and more. This Halloween, treat yourself to a great time in Las Vegas!

Head down to the Las Vegas Strip on Cinco de Mayo for the best margaritas and tequila this side of the border!

Diego at MGM Grand boasts an unsurpassed selection of tequilas, with 125 different 100 percent Agave Tequila labels, while Tacos & Tequila at Luxor incorporates traditional elements of Mexican style and Las Vegas flair. Mix it up with a new concept from Chef Jose Andres at Cosmopolitan's China Poblano for a Chinese and Mexican melting pot dish, or, relax in the vibrant Border Grill at Mandalay Bay for a great view of the Lazy River just off Mandalay Bay Beach.

Tacos & TequilaGrab a mid-afternoon drink at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood or Taqueria Canonita at The Venetian, also close by, for a true "south of the border" taste. The restaurant's centerpiece boasts a lively exhibition kitchen, featuring sculpted steel and wrought-iron gates, colorful Mexican tiles and authentic Mexican folk art.

Hussong's Cantina and Taqueria at Mandalay Place claims one of their bartenders, Don Carlos Orozco, from the original location, created the first margarita in 1941.  By mixing equal parts tequila, Damiana and lime, he served the concoction over ice in a salt-rimmed glass for Margarita Henkel, daughter of the German Ambassador to Mexico. Order one of Hussong's specially crafted tequilas or, if you have a sweet tooth, a Bloodtini or a Mexican Lemon Drop margarita.

If you want to head off the Strip, the hip Pink Taco at the Hard Rock Hotel features authentic Mexican craftwork and drinks and the Coasta Cantina at The Orleans on Tropicana Avenue will have your mouth watering with tequila shrimp and 99-cent margaritas during happy hour. Just a few stops on the Monorail, Vince Neil's Tres Rios at the LVH - Las Vegas Hotel features 18-month aged barreled tequilas; and downtown at Casa Don Juan's, homemade tortilla chips, fresh salsa and an expansive tequila collection add to the unique Arts District vibe. Happy hour specials are great, but why not treat your friends to 24 hour $.99 margaritas at any bar at the historic downtown Fremont Hotel! 5 friends - 5 drinks - 5 dollars!

So, grab a few amigos, head to your favorite Vegas Mexican restaurant, and have a drink (or two or three) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Vegas!
