“When was the last time you visited the circus?”


#1

Traveling on paid vacation to Las Vegas, NV has me thinking…

Any CBn’ers have any cool spots / good eats / unique place to check out that the typical Vegas goer may miss?

Naturally, I am staying at Circus Circus (as it is one of the last ‘old school’ strip locations that hasn’t under gone major changes, and of course, it was featured in Diamonds Are Forever). I fear the number of children I’ll have to maneuver around, but I’m hoping with going right after kids have had spring breaks, it shan’t be too bad… We shall see.

Well, how about it then?

Well, I’ve been there a few times (cough)…

CC is one of the last of the old guard. Check out the Tropicana just because also head up to the Cosmopolitan and their lobby bar Vesper. I’d also recommend Delmonico’s steak house at the Venetian. Pricey, but worth it IMO. James and Felix of the novels would have approved. Lastly, if you’d like some trigger time, The Gun Store on Tropicana has a fine staff and selection of various items that would make John Wick’s mouth water. The Baccarat bar at Bellagio is lovely and their caviar top notch.

Safe travels and have a good time.

Fremont St, of course, to take in the scene of DAF’s car chase. 25 cent roulette at El Cortez.
And I believe the Linq (formerly Imperial Palace) still has the Classic Car Collection.
The Planet Hollywood restaurant in Caesars Palace used to have all kinds of cool Bond props, but they seem to have been sold to the Bond in Motion exhibit. There a few smaller props still in the new restaurant upstairs, but nothing very exciting.

Also, don’t forget the “Whyte House”. It’s no longer the Hilton, now the Westgate but still worth popping by.

Hello, mates! Back from the desert heat has me quite thankful that I reached out for some suggestions (especially the all knowing @Bryce_003) . I’d say I was able to see as much as possible inside of the week and a half I was in Vegas and now am armed with suggestions of my own!

I also wanted to share some quick photos taken.
