Tuesdays in Vegas

 

Vegas is unique in that any time of day, whether it is six in the morning or six at night, there is always something going on, every single day of the week. It is a never-ending adventure, full of activities, excellent cuisine and great times just waiting to be had.

The best part is that you can experience Vegas the right way with fewer crowds by planning your vacation midweek. Mid-week occupancy is 13 percent lower than weekend occupancy, so you will have more options for seats at your favorite shows, more leniency in restaurant reservations and so much more!

No matter what you plan to do in Vegas, consider experiencing it all on a Tuesday or Wednesday. There are plenty of shows and events that take place mid-week. For example, this Tuesday, April 10, you could check out IMPACT-An Explosion of Magic and Music at the Clarion Hotel and Casino, see ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace for some adult entertainment or hit up Excalibur for a little Thunder from Down Under action. Check out more events here for any day of the week.

Imagine waking up bright and early in the morning to hit up Bali Hai Golf Course with the buddies, then joining your wife for a delectable breakfast at The Venetian's Bouchon. Next, relax with some serious pampering at the Encore Spa for a massage or exotic body scrub. You could then head over to the Stratosphere for a bit of adventure with SkyJump. (You'll want to have an empty stomach for this one!)

But wait, the day has just begun! After your relaxing and adventurous morning sans crowds, sit back, grab a beer and cheer on your favorite team at Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo. Then, head over to the Flamingo for Nathan Burton Comedy Magic or stop by Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden at The Mirage to glimpse lions and tigers and dolphins ... oh my!

Craftsteak at MGM GrandBecause it is midweek, it's easier to get reservations at the top restaurants in Vegas. Finish off a fantastic day with mouth-watering cuisine from Craftsteak at MGM Grand or Wolfgang Puck's Spago at Caesars Palace, open every day. Finally, head over to some of the Strip's most luxurious lounges including Chandelier at The Cosmopolitan or ARIA's Gold Lounge for a signature cocktail and fabulous people watching.

There is always something happening in Vegas, any day, any time. Book your trip mid-week to the crowds! See you soon!

Vegas Weekend: Setting the scene -- A weekend filled with knockdowns and touchdowns

Spark some romance this Valentine’s Day in Vegas

  Book a romantic Las Vegas getaway this Valentine's Day and enjoy a romantic retreat that will keep your flame burning for that special someone all year long.

 Start with a little soothing of the senses. Las Vegas is also home to the more than 45 unique and relaxing luxury spas. Most spas offer specials for couples, and specialty services such as sport, Shiatsu and Swedish massages; herbal baths; wraps; aromatherapy and reflexology; steam rooms, saunas, whirlpools; and more. You'll be in the lap of luxury and leave feeling invigorated and refreshed.

Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens is the perfect place for an intimate meal for two. Then you'll be ready for a night out just for two. Take a stroll around Fremont Street in the early evening and enjoy the overhead light show of Viva Vision. Then head into the Four Queens Hotel and look for Hugo's Cellar. As you might guess, it's in the basement of the hotel - a rustic, charming and vintage Vegas restaurant awaits you. The food and ambience are top-notch; both complemented by some of Vegas' finest servers. And tradition here is strong, as every lady receives a complimentary rose upon leaving.

If you don't want to dine in a cellar, you can have your head in the clouds instead, overlooking Las Vegas at the Stratosphere's Top of the World restaurant, or experience the ultimate in romantic getaways at Eiffel Tower Restaurant. Great food, piano entertainment and a view of the city - it's a Valentine's Day dinner your partner will never forget. Just across Las Vegas Boulevard, there is no better waterfront dining experience than Le Cirque. Exquisite French cuisine and an extensive wine list will tempt your taste buds as you enjoy the famous dancing Fountains of Bellagio.

Afterward, get cozy and enjoy some of Las Vegas' unique nightlife, including the retro-swagger of Matt Goss at Caesars Palace, or any of the free late-night lounge acts at many Strip hotels. For an only-in-Vegas experience, enjoy late-night cocktails at the Fireside Lounge at the Peppermill on the Strip - mirrored walls, fake flowers and a central fireplace add to the kitschy Vegas experience.

Spark your romance this Valentine's Day in Vegas!

Know the Code -- don't overshare!

  What's #knowthecode all about? It's your declaration that when you're in Vegas, What Happens Here, Stays Here. 

     Imogen Thomas definitely overshared on her Twitter feed during a recent trip to Vegas.Don't get us wrong, you can still tweet and post and snap pictures when you are enjoying Las Vegas. Just don't go too far. Take the oath and join the movement to stop people who "overshare."

     Take Welsh model Imogen Thomas, for instance. As you can see here, she tweeted a little too much during a recent trip to Vegas. Everyone loves the sizzling nightlife in celeb hotspots such as Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace and XS Nightclub at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, but that's still no reason to violate the code. 

     Sharing too much can have undesirable repercussions. Just ask Hewlett-Packard VP Scott McClellan. And should Alec Baldwin and his new girlfriend really be sharing intimate thoughts on Twitter? Instead, they should try a romantic meal with a table on the patio at Comme Ça inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, with its breathtaking view of The Strip.

     When you're in Vegas, Protect the Moment. #Knowthecode, otherwise, this could happen to you:
