Another recommendation was the NERD BAR.

Was super cool. As long as you buy drinks you get all this FREE:

Bowling:

Several stations where you could play 100's of OLD CONSOLE video games:

A cock-shaped mechanical bull-riding machine:

Comic Books on the walls in the washrooms:

Graffiti masterpiece I found. All spray-painted by hand I'm pretty sure:

DO NOT BUY YOUR WEED ON THE MAIN STRIP(s)

You will see LOTS of 'Cannabis Dispensaries' selling what looks like fresh bud, pre-rolled joints, edibles etc. Even on the new strip amongst the expensive hotels there were kiosks everywhere.

We found out later (yes, I bought some/got ripped off lol) that ALL WEED on the main strip is required by law to be almost zero THC. The fine print is that is it labelled 'CDB Cannabis', which is high in CBD but low in THC. You simply can't buy weed that will get you high on the main strip. Actually its more than that, its like a 5-block radius all AROUND the strips. I can only guess as to exactly why/how that law came into play.


Fortunately, of you venture beyond that 5-block radius or whatever, you can find some EXCELLENT dispensaries. I recommend MEDMEN. It was a bit of a hike through some dodgy neighborhoods to get there (lol but I enjoy that) but it was top quality. I even wonder if the weed was laced with something because it was ridiculously good
Image


I saw some bigger MEDMEN locations in some better plazas etc later. The one we went was the closest in walking distance from where we were so we google mapped it on foot through like I said was a pretty depressing neighborhood. The funniest thing was seeing 3-4 WEDDING CHAPELS all in the same tiny block as 3-4 BAIL BOND shops all mixed up together lol. All kinds of broken and damaged people in that town man. The dispensary was small but like I said inside was quality:

Our seats for a Penn & Teller show.

Teller was having back surgery so it was Penn & 'Friends'. Still a good time

Another show, KA (Cirque du Soleil).

Was pretty incredible. I'd seen a Cirque du Soleil before and it was kinda crappy but this was a whole different level. Mindblowingly cool. Lots of martial arts and fight scenes too, pretty fun to watch

Vegas strip from the taxi on the way to the airport:

All in all a very weird place.

A lot of fun for sure, but entirely pandering to temporary and potentially costly material pleasures.

I can see how easily humans could get totally broken there, it feeds you all kinds of dopamine highs but leaves nothing for your soul. It truly is ‘sin city’.

1 week maximum I would advise, and keep the gambling to a bare minimum, unless you really enjoy poker for example and know what the hell you’re doing. I didn’t gamble a penny and don’t regret.

It can be great though for burning off some stress, having some fun and escape from regular life, and enjoying company with loved ones. Like I said, one week is grand, I did come back feeling pretty charged up.
