    I should clarify that when I say drinking while walking on the street I was referring to the strip and the downtown area. I don't know about the laws elsewhere.

    I don't gamble, don't drink in public (well, rarely), and am too cheap for the shows....except Penn & Teller, I'll pay for that.

    I did really enjoy walking through each of the casinos and seeing Hoover...but that seems like a "do it once" kind of thing.

    Now the food...I found it to be "decent" on the strip...but wicked expensive...anyone have some off-strip recommendations?

    You have to be careful of the food off the strip. A lot of it is over rated. But I did try the Italian restaurant Nora's and it is pretty decent and legit. It can get crowded during the usual hours most restaurants get crowded. I saw it on the Food Network show The Hungry Detective starring Chris Cognac that lasted I think three episodes. I've heard there are some decent restaurants in the China Town area. I think it's a strip mall. There is another thread that talks about Vegas with some decent eating suggestions I'm going to try when I go back.

    What food options did you try when you went? Everyone has their own opinions about what expensive food entails.

    Good food tends to be expensive in LV and the off strip/local stuff consists of a lot of chain food.
    IMO, the most worthwhile (affordable) place to eat in LV is Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana, in the Green Valley Ranch District.

    I'm willing to spend money on food...I was talking about paying $60 for sandwiches and soda...absurd. boring, ordinary sandwiches.

    Thanks wenus! Will check that out.

    Ya know what? I'm not sure why I enjoyed Vegas so much, but I know I did. To me, the whole strip is overdone, over-sized, and over my budget. However, we managed to find fun around most corners. I went with my wife, so we ate at nicer places (and KGB), and only did street drinking one night. There are great outdoor activities if you head past the old strip, and try something a little different than 90% of the people who are visiting do.

    A few things stuck out, to me, while we were there:

    Food is expensive in Vegas, and I have no idea why people say it's cheap.
    I only saw three likenesses of Elvis, and two of them were hanging out together, while the other was kissing Marilyn Monroe in an elevator.
    It can be as classy or trashy as you want it to be (we like both).
    My wife is hilariously funny, and will find fun in walking past "hooker card hockers", asking if they have her new card yet, etc.
    Don't eat breakfast at a Casino, unless you love diarrhea (what?).

    I've since been caught describing Vegas as opulent, overwhelming, over-priced, austentacious, and awesome.
