This place has a very small dance floor and a separate room for techno lovers. The drinks were overpriced, at least the nonalcoholic ones -- $2 for a Coke. The long lines aren't worth the wait.
This is a good spot if you're looking for country dancing and a "good-ol'-boy" atmosphere. It features bikini bull riding and "dirty girls" mud wrestling. There is a $10 cover at the door, but it's free for military personnel.
You can find some really good deals at the Broadacres Swap Meet. Since it's outdoors it gets a little hot walking around sometimes. There is a petting zoo to keep the kids occupied. The bad thing is that they aren't always open when their sign says they are. It costs $1 to get in.
This swap meet offers a variety of items, from furniture to wigs to fingernail art. You can find some nicer quality things, but everything seemed a little pricey for a swap meet.
This little store in Treasure Island Hotel & Casino has a ton of accessories all priced at $10. There are a variety of scarves, earrings, brooches, etc. to choose from, most of decent-looking quality despite their cheap price.
This pirate show is free, and lasts about thirty minutes. It's a very interesting show with some breathtaking pyrotechnics, but it's important to come early if you want a good view because the crowd gathers quickly. It's more geared toward an adult crowd as there are several sexual innuendos.
If you're a reader, you've gotta love Barnes & Noble. My favorite thing about this place is its huge selection of titles and genres. My only complaint is that they don't carry a wide enough variety of journaling and scrapbooking supplies. The atmosphere is very calm, quiet, and "reader-friendly"; if you want to plop down in the middle of an aisle or sit in a chair with a book, nobody minds.
This store is a crafter's dream! It has everything from scrapbooking to cake decorating to flower arranging supplies. Michaels offers classes and seminars for both kids and adults, allowing you to make really neat projects. The price isn't bad, comparable to most other crafting stores such as Hobby Lobby and Hobbytown USA.
This place has some great tasting barbecue and a big menu full of mouthwatering selections, from appetizers to entrees to desserts. And for those of us who are transplants from the southern states, they have a drink that's virtually impossible to find around here -- sweet tea! That in itself is a selling point!
If you like to eat, then you'll LOVE the buffet at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. It's pricey for sure -- about $30 per plate -- but sooo worth it. The food is delicious and there's a HUGE variety: anything you could possibly want is stretched out before you, fresh and hot (or crisp and cold, if it's a salad that tickles your fancy). Their crab legs are pre-cracked, so all you have to do is peel the meat out and eat it. And their shrimp is peeled and cleaned. Everything there is delicious.
