  • Insider Tips from a Former Las Vegas Concierge

    Vegas can be a tricky place if you don't know what you are doing. I know my first few visits weren't nearly as fun as those that followed since I began to learn my way around but I'm in awe of Las Vegas Concierges. There is so much stuff going on in this city that is constantly changing and yet they seem to know everything about it as it happens.

  • 50 Years and Still Going Strong at Caesars Palace Las Vegas!

    Vegas fascinates me. It is a city that is constantly transforming itself and one that is unabashedly driven by raw capitalism - driven by one goal: to bring people to town who are willing to spend their money. In 1966 when it first opened, the strip wasn't what it was today and this is the property that defined that growth and continues to define what it means to be "Vegas" today. However, for some reason I had never actually stayed there before. Luckily, I was able to check it out recently while I was in town with Smirnoff for the Electric Daisy Carnival. 

  • Australian Mancation Adventure: Golf, F1, Wine, and Beaches in Melbourne

    When it comes to mancation in Australia, Melbourne is surely a great choice of destination for all those men who are looking forward to have some fun with their friends. Melbourne has an urban setting, luxury hotels offering upscale amenities, great outdoor activity opportunities and even unique golf settings. Here are some top ideas for your next mancation in Melbourne.

  • Exploring the History and Origins of Roulette

    Up until a last year I wasn't a fan of roulette, I preferred blackjack and slots. The game of roulette was too complicated. Then a friend (who happened to own a casino) showed me how to play. Since then, it's become one of my favorite games as despite the complexity it is really pretty fun and easy to play. This is why roulette is one of the most popular table games at both land-based and online casinos today. Simply put, it has an elegant pace and the anticipation of watching the ball skip by your numbers is almost mesmerizing. I also love the fact that there are so many ways to bet... and despite the fact that everyone has their own methods... there's really no "right" or "wrong" way to play roulette.

  • Party Like an Egyptian at Luxor Las Vegas

    Having opened in 1993, Luxor is one of the icons of the Las Vegas strip and kicked off a decades long building boom of new mega resorts. While the strip offers a lot of unique opportunities - this is you only shot to sleep in a pyramid! While considerably smaller than the "Great Pyramid" of Giza (230 meters per side vs 183 meters), Kufu's designers didn't think to add a 120,000 sq ft casino, Carrot Top, Criss Angel Believe or "Fantsy" topless revue, so we're willing to accept that it's a bit smaller.

  • River Rock Casino Resort for an Awesome Vancouver Guys Getaway

    River Rock Casino Resort is the perfect Vancouver hotel to host a men’s getaway. Not only does it offer five star accommodations, entertainment, a casino, and more, it’s also located close to all of the other action Vancouver has to offer. Which means that whether you want to play a game of craps, or see the city, you’re all set at River Rock Casino Resort. It's also close to the airport so it's super easy to fly into.

    In fact, I think the unique thing about Vancouver is that it offers a dual opportunity for a guys getaway. On one side it's a fantastic destination on it's own. On the other side, Vancouver is the perfect gateway to all the exciting adventures that await visitors in the mountains, rivers, and forests of British Columbia.

  • Playing Vintage Vegas Slots in Downtown Las Vegas at the D

    If there's one thing that I miss from the first few times I visited Las Vegas many years ago it is the sound of coins plunking down out of the machine. Sure, today's modern slots have beeps and buzzers that signify that you won, but it's just not the same thing. Similarly, there's a sense of satisfaction walking around with a big heavy bucket full of quarters after a successful win that sadly has left this town. That's true except for a couple places that have clung to the past such as The D Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas.

  • A Quick Stop at Buffalo Bill's Casino Resort in Primm Valley Nevada

    As you drive on I-15 from Las Vegas to Southern California, you will find a cluster of hotels, a "fashion outlet" and a California Lottery store. Each time I drive by, I've wondered what they were like but I've never actually stopped till this past weekend. Frankly, I'm still not sure why people would stop there instead of going all the way into Vegas or back home to Los Angles, Orange County, or San Diego. Despite that, here's what we found inside :)

  • The LINQ Hotel & Casino Has an Awesome Pool on the Las Vegas Strip

    The LINQ is one of the hottest new properties on the strip, so when we heard about their new pool opening, we got excited!

    The new LINQ Pool Deck is exclusive to LINQ Hotel & Casino guests 21 and over, The LINQ Pool provides a cooling escape with spectacular views of the High Roller observation wheel and the LINQ Promenade. This center-strip destination features two pools, a 32-seat center bar lined with four plasma televisions and full of signature cocktails, draught beer, frozen drinks and poolside dining options from Nook Express. The main pool boasts a wet deck with lily pad daybeds available for rent, while the second pool is accessed from a standalone elevated deck with tables available for rent as well.

  • The D Hotel - A Fremont Street Vegas Experience Imported from Detroit

    It's the tale of two cities in Vegas right now - while "The Strip" has gone full tilt towards high-end luxury and has literally stripped all the quirky stuff that used to be "Vegas", the downtown area has seen a resurgence. I've always been a fan of the Fremont Street area for it's cheap drinks an colorful people, but it has never EVER been a place that I would recommend staying. That seems to be changing now though with the opening of The D Hotel and the renovation of The Golden Gate by entrepreneurs Derek and Greg Stevens.

  • A VIP Las Vegas Guys Weekend At Aria

    I now know what it means to be a Vegas VIP - it is an experience unlike any other I've ever had the opportunity to experience and the best part was that I got to share it with 6 of my best friends and fellow bloggers!

    We did a LOT of stuff in just three days, but this is the city where excess is normal and you can always recover once you get home. Our home base for the weekend was Aria but we also explored Mandalay Bay, Mirage, and Bellagio. 

  • Burgers, Beers, and Basketball at MGM Grand Las Vegas Guys Weekend!

    The MGM Grand Las Vegas is the second largest hotel in the world by number of rooms and since it opened up in 1993, the hotel has transformed from the loose theme based on the Wizard of Oz into what I found last week - an AMAZINGLY COOL sports and entertainment themed experience that was about as awesome as you could possibly get for a Vegas guys weekend. It could have been that we happened to be there during the PAC 12 Championship basketball games and the contagious excitement from thousands of excited fans, alums, and players but I suspect that with their aggressive sports entertainment schedule including PBR, MMA, Boxing, and others that this vibe is not unique to the days we visited.

  • Six Ways To Celebrate #PiDay With MGM Resorts in Vegas

    Each year it seems like Pi Day gets more and more elaborate as marketing folks, social media geeks, and the media respond to this mathematical occurrence of 3/14 or 3.14. That's the number Pi for those of you who don't remember high school geometry!

    Anyhow, this year we are in Vegas for the #MenWhoBlogLVtrip with MGM Resorts and they have shared with us six ways that they are celebrating Pi Day across their various resorts. I'm looking forward to the Truffle Pizza Pie at FIVE50, what's your favorite?

  • Guys Weekend at Talking Stick Resort & Casino

    Scottsdale Arizona is a fantastic destination for a mancation and while we visited here for Cactus League Spring Training - especially since it is right next to Salt River Fields, it is a solid year-round destination.

    There is obviously no shortage of world-class resorts in Scottsdale, Arizona and so it might be tough to decide which one will be the perfect spot for your next mancation.

    Talking stick is a 4 diamond casino resort that has an on-property golf course, walking distance to the latest Top Golf location, an entertainment venue with acts ranging from Rob Thomas and Collective Soul to Dennis Miller and Tim Allen. It is also home to the Arizona State Poker Championship and if that isn't enough - even cool enough that even NFL Players want to take their buddies here for a round of golf as I found out during a twitter conversation with Philadelphia Eagles veteran,Mark McMillian.

  • Sharks, Fish Sandwiches, and Water Slide Races at Atlantis Resort

    headerimageIf you live in the United States, it is highly likely that you have seen the commercials for Atlantis - pictured as this gleaming Las Vegas-style resort emerging from powdered sugar Bahamian sands, with a gorgeous couple (or maybe a family) enjoying their stay there.

    What you don't see is that Atlantis is also a great spot for a group of guys to go for a long weekend, or even just for the day, since it is super convenient to the port of Nassau. That is how I got to experience the spectacle that is Atlantis Resort, during our cruise on Carnival Ecstasy, and I had a BLAST!
