Doing Vegas!!

I always tell people to do their research before a vacation. Do they listen? No! When it comes to big cities like NYC, Chicago, LA and Vegas some people just don’t know where to start, so I have taken my past experiences (with friends, family and husband) and made a guide to help you out! Lucky for you I have spent many years on sites like JackColton.com learning how to master EPIC trips to Vegas. Hope this helps!!

Two Helpful Hints: Use UBER & Lyft with free codes| Download myVegas app

These are a few contacts I have used in the past to get into venues. If they help you, TIP!!
(702) 286-1223 Chais|Encore Beach Club and all other clubs
(702) 701-1466 The Laundry Room – speakeasy downtown

POOL PARTIES
Two Helpful Tips: Get there by 11am| Purchase tickets on wantickets.com during holidays.

They all get wild and crazy, but if you are there to have some half naked fun, you won’t even notice. In my experience you do better buying a pitcher because drinks can run you $10-$15 easily even for a can beer! Lucking up with an awesome host who gives you and your girls V.I.P. treatment is the ultimate wish.  I have actually lucked up on a cabana and endless pitchers before, fun times!

Two Helpful Hints: Get there by 10pm| Purchase tickets on wantickets.com.

They all get wild and packed. The nightclubs in my experience do not cater to general admission as much as they do to the $15,000 tables. With that said ladies either drink until your feet are numb, bring some spare cash to buy flip flops from the bathroom lady, win you way into some fellas party booth or wear your comfortable heels/sandals. Drinks will be $15 a pop, but you may be able to sneak in a flask. Don’t judge me

I have stayed in 3 star and 5 star hotels. There is definitely a difference, but don’t concentrate too much on the room if you don’t plan on being in the room a lot. Having a hotel with nightclubs, nice pools, bathrooms and restaurants are a big plus to me because then you don’t have to leave your hotel as much. So it’s all about what you prefer. I prefer a nice room now that I’m getting older, but in my early 20s I didn’t care as much. But I also didn’t need to gulp down Pedialyte everyday to survive! Ahhhh, to be young again.  <<<DRINKING TIP!!

Two Helpful Hints: Eat Brunch/Lunch Buffets/Happy Hours | Reserve a spot using opentable.com

I love finding cheap eats and I love Brunch Buffets with unlimited “beverages”. We scored big time on the BOGO free buffets through the myVegas app and saved alot of money by not splurging on fine dining every day. I encourage one fine dining meal in Vegas and lots of cheap eats! I also encourage tipping your beverage waitress ahead of time. We gave a generous tip in the beginning and watched the drinks take over the table. Works every time.
