Stuff you can’t take into a Las Vegas pool club

We know there’s not a lot of room to stow stuff when you’re only wearing a bikini or an asymmetrical man-thong. But we’re also painfully aware of how thoroughly your bag could be searched when you try to enter a pool club. We swear that stuff wasn’t ours, we were…

Vegas tan lines are the worst

We love our “Sin City” moniker. The name “Sun City” would also probably work if it weren’t taken. There’s a good chance you’re too young to get that reference. But suffice it to say we ain’t gonna play Sun City. We are, however, going to endure long stretches of blistering…

Stuff you never want to find in a Las Vegas pool filter

The number of sweaty tourists who go through Vegas pools pretty much necessitates frequent cleaning. And, thankfully, the pools are great at keeping their waters clean. From expert pool cleaning personnel to the latest skimming technology, the waters are sure to contain nothing more than medically acceptable levels of chlorine.…

Pick your Vegas pool club

We’ve each got our own style and personality. Some of us are reserved and enjoy quiet relaxation. And some of us are extroverts who get jealous of puppies for all the attention they get. Stop playing with puppies and look over here. Our personal styles mean a lot when it…

National Beer Day in Vegas

Beer. Beer. Beer. We love beer. We might have had a few already. Yeah, it’s early. But it’s also National Beer Day. So we’ll forgive our own indulgences. You may not have known about this holiest of holidays before you booked your trip, but you do now. So live it…

10 best upscale bars in Vegas

Forget the cheap buffets and that guy on the Strip who swears he can get you an escort for half off the competitor’s. (You don’t want to know which half is missing.) Vegas is an upscale town full of upscale bars. We’ve got views that kill, drinks that delight and…

Five ways to be Irish in Vegas

It’s that time again, when young children’s fancy turns to thoughts of clovers and prizes at the ends of rainbows, and slightly older children’s fancy turns to seeing how much green tinted alcohol they can pour down their gullets before covering the pavement in what we affectionately call an Irish…

Top 10 unique bars in Vegas

This was a hard one. Vegas is a unique town and we’ve got a lot of unique bars. We seriously spent way longer than we’re proud of narrowing down this list and trying to figure out our exact motivation for including what we did. And we’re not even going to…

The diviest dive bars in Vegas

A dive is a dive and everyone needs to deal with that. It’s not an insult. It’s not really a badge of honor. But it’s a mantle that means a rougher clientele and the occasional Joe mom jeans who wanders in and tries not to make eye contact. That said,…

How not to be ‘that’ guy at the club

Here’s the thing about “that” guy in the club: There are many of him and they never seem to self-identify. Whether you think it’s OK to feel up a girl you haven’t even spoken to yet just because she’s on the dance floor, or you’re ready to pick a fight…

Las Vegas’ best ladies nights

Vegas is a lot of things. It’s a family destination, a gambler’s paradise and also a hotspot for ladies to get their fun on. With the bright lights and the 24-hour mentality, ladies can always find a party. And some places even offer special deals for the fairer sex. While…

Big Game meets big nightlife in Las Vegas

Are you ready for what we’re legally only allowed to call the “Big Game”? We sure hope so. Because in a town like Vegas, with somewhere around infinity plus 10 screens showing the Big Game, we’re definitely ready to listen to half the country cheer and the other half accuse…

LIGHT Nightclub’s bright new year

When it was announced late last year that Hakkasan Group would purchase controlling interest in Light Group, the Vegas club scene instantly erupted in an odd mix of “We kind of saw this coming” and “We can’t wait to see what Hakkasan comes up with.” Now that we’re putting 2014…

National Hangover Day in Las Vegas

If you’re reading this on Jan. 1, what some people would like to dub National Hangover Day, there’s a pretty good chance your head is throbbing, your stomach is sour and you’re cursing those last few shots your friends talked you into taking. Thankfully we’re writing this ahead of time…

Tips for a last minute New Year’s Eve in Vegas

So you’re one of those procrastinators, huh? You put off planning New Year’s Eve until the last minute. And now you’re in Vegas with no solid plans and you need something to do. If you’re lucky enough to have a hotel room on or near the Strip then there’s a…

Best new Vegas bars and clubs of 2014

We’re often uncertain how other sites determine what goes on their “best” lists. Do they do have some research procedure? Or are they just the places the staff happened to be at recently and thus remember the most? We don’t know, and we really don’t care. When we were putting…

Hot cocktails to warm your Vegas nights

This is the time of year when everyone understands why we live in Vegas. The air outside is just the right temperature to huddle under a hoodie, sit by a heat lamp and sample some of the best hot cocktails around. So whether you’re here to escape the snow back…

Las Vegas gin mills celebrate Repeal Day

We may be known more for our gambling than our giggle water, but Vegas has at least a few hairs of the dog in her history. Where else can you drink a frozen cocktail out of a bull’s bum while walking down the street at 3 a.m. or get served…
