Three of my friends and I have decided to go to the Vegas Bash in July, has anyone here been or are you thinking of going? We would love to make the most of the time we are there and meeting new friends is always a great way to start! If you have been, did you have a good time? What would you recommend for us to do or caution us not to do? If you live in Vegas, what are some of the non-tourist things that we should find?

VEGASANGEL is HERE!!!!! Ladies, ladies, LADIES! I am thrilled to hear you are thinking about the bash. first go to the site if you haven't already.BBW network(dot)com. Look at all the pictures from earlier year's bashes to get a sense for it. Now, the bash has a costume party, pool party, fashion show, formal dinner and party and allll kinds of fun. I believe it is a 4 day event. It is expensive, but it's 4 days for that money! As far as fun things to do here, well first let me tell you that I am cheap. Not like buying 2 ply toilet paper and unraveling it to make 2 rolls of toilet paper kinda cheap but cheap as in I am not paying 20.00 for a salad etc.. Secondly, locals grow bored of paying 20.00 for club admission, 10.00 for a long island iced tea to get into a club with standing room only where your feet will inevitable be killing you by nights end.We have accepted "reality" life in Vegas and have settled into the status quo of walmarts, McDonalds, churches and the site and public transportation. Now, with that being said I can direct you to get a tooth brush and toothpaste at the Bellagio's shoppe where the price you'd pay for colgate makes it more of a luxury than a standard brand or to the walmart where you can get it for under 3.00. So, when you decide what your budget is, then it is easier to ration it and get the most bang for your buck. Save your big money for the show tickets, yard long margaritas that come with a neck strap and access to the wax museum where you can take your yard length margarita brazeness and take photos of yourselves in funny poses with the elvis likeness! Ahhhh, something for everyone dearies, something for everyone! Next, it will be July, high time for deathly strong sun and heat - dress and prepare accordingly! Also while exploring the newest sites on the strip you may tend to loose track of time and before you know it would have walked quite a bit. Make sure you have comfortable shoes! As for shows, there isa place called " show tickets tonight" and "half price tickets" where on the day of the show you line up at like 11am and see what you can get for half price. The seats are great, not to worry. Plus most venues in Vegas are very small and intimate. I had front row tickets to Tom Jones 2 times when I went with my mom. Security had to ask her to back up from the stage as she was scaring the crap out of him..LOL. As far as clubs, well I will be honest. They are packed, loud, overpriced and full of stick skinny 20 somethings that like to hang in their packs and just stare from across the room, and if you are a woman alone regardless of your size, age or what you look like..there will be some wolf-man ready to try to hit on you, ESPECIALLY if he can sense that you are tourists( That is their favorite prey as they hope to get a "one nighter" with you and then you'll be gone). I think it is better to face these clubs as a group versus solo. As far as my favorite things to do, I like the bowling here, rollerskating, walking the strip and people watching and checking out the free outdoor shows like the dancing fountains at the Bellagio, Pirate show at the Treasure Island. Then like the other lady said there are more fun things to see for free inside like the lions at the MGM or the fish aquarium at Caesars palace. I love to lunch! There are so many great buffets and visually stimulating places to dine. The rio has a great buffet, but it is like 25.00 dollars now - but all you can eat and a gazillion choices! Well, I've talked your ear off. I hope you decide to come out. I am from California and have made Vegas my home for 2 years now and I love it. Take care! vegasangel76

Ohhh thanks for the advice, I'll start looking into craps now and definitely look that up while we are there. We just want to make the most of the time we will have there, and when we are not busy with bash activities, we want to see the SIGHTS!! Thanks again!

I lived there in that area for two years and had so much fun! ¿I learned how to play "craps" ¿so if you have not learned how yet it is well worth it. ¿Go to the Imperial Palace in the afternoon and talk to the "Pit Boss" he will hook you up with a mini tutorial and get you going on "house money" first then you can play for real:) ¿If you have about 6 people to start that is best but they will do it for 4 too. ¿It is one of two Casinos that have a sit down craps table with just one stick man helping you through it. ¿Every visitor I "convinced" to play walked away with so much luck & at least 150 bucks up from where they started...1st timers luck I guess! ¿Anyway, we all are now addicted & never play anything else. ¿Once you get those dice in you hands, whew! ¿Fun! ¿Have a total blast girlie!

Thanks for the tips. My daughter and I were planning to go to Vegas last year and she had been researching and found a lot of stuff online. I just want to know what is worth the time and cost to actually do it. I appreciate your advise and will definitely check into those things. Again, thanks and have a great day!!
