Vegas 2008: Nightlife

Posted by Mike Merritt in Vegas 2008 on

Being delayed at an airport seems a perfect time to write a blog entry.

I want to talk briefly about my time at night in Vegas, but first, a follow-up to yesterday’s entry.

I was talking with one of my professors today, and he pretty much seconded the theory I gave yesterday about Avid. When I mentioned the HD-DVD comparison, he said, “There you go.” So, I would not be surprised if they’re bought out or closed within the next couple years.

Nightlife time.

Vegas is the place to go for nightlife, but you already knew that. I’ll talk about the two big things I did in Vegas.

The first was seeing Love, by Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage. Set to Beatles songs, the acrobats fly around the stage, dance, flip, and more. I highly recommend it, but even if you don’t see that, you have to see a show. However, expect to drop at least $100, even for the cheap seats.

The next thing was what I did last night. I went to Tryst at the Wynn hotel. It’s a nightclub, and one of the hoppingest (invented a word there) clubs in Vegas. I don’t necessarily recommend you do what I did and go VIP, but if you do, make sure you have at least $800 to drop on the two bottle minimum.

We were told that the bottles were included in the $80 cover, but that wasn’t the case. Luckily, we got the minimum down to one bottle at $495. Still, if you can do the VIP option at Tryst, do it, because it’s totally worth it.

I also went to the casinos, and and went to a club at the Hard Rock cafe. All in all, the nightlife for me in Vegas was fun, and totally worth the money.

Las Vegas

Nightlife in Vegas is very expensive especially with the VIP treatment but sometimes you just have to live it up and regret it when you’re old. You spent 800 bucks on VIP service but at least you have that story to tell your kids and grandkids about not what to do in Vegas. Vegas has great shows, their expensive like dropping a $100 dollars on a seat(I know you did) but worth it for the most part. I’ll have to see love someday and give you my critique on it.
