Best Vegas Strip Joint

Sapphire... oh, you mean on the strip? Wynn/Encore hands down.

Best Vegas Show
Don't know yet. Have yet to see a show that I've been eager to go back to.

Best Vegas Upscale Shopping
Forum Shops at Caesars. They've got a John Varvatos there. I'm a sucker for his menswear.

Best Vegas Value Shopping

Forum Shops in June or November when the new arrivals are coming in and all the previous season's stuff is on sale.

Most Overrated Restaurant

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab at Caesars

Biggest Vegas Rip Off

Don't mean to keep bashing Caesars, but their room rates are almost always way more than anything else comparable in town. Suites are highway robbery.

Get friendly with people working in higher end hotels. They get free or significantly discounted bottle service at nightclubs on industry nights.
