Las Vegas go hard or go home thread

Recommended Posts

We hit up STK on Saturday. It was a great atmosphere and the food was on point. Hit up SpeedVegas and raced super cars. Gambled a ton. We stayed at Aria in the Sky Suites and we really enjoyed Aria and it was  actually pretty convenient to a lot of other properties. Sports book at Aria is trash though.

Eater Vegas on Lotus of Siam:


Fans of Saipin Chutima’s northern Thai cuisine may soon be able to return to the original location in the Commercial Center. Lotus of Siam plans to reopen the restaurant more than two years after it closed following the collapse of its rain-soaked roof on East Sahara Avenue.


Some of the new touches to the space include carpets, wallpaper, and a waiting area for customers at the front. Penny Chutima tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that a shuttle between the two restaurants will escort customers who don’t want to wait for a table. Lotus of Siam certainly is known as one of the toughest restaurant reservations in town, with weekends booked far in advance. The restaurant, tentatively planning a Dec. 2 return, plans to serve lunch and dinner on weekdays, and only dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.

Back in 2017, Lotus of Siam opened in the former Roy’s Restaurant space on Flamingo Road. At the time, Breslin Builders renovated the 7,921-square-foot space with a new wall to close off the open kitchen, plus new paint, flooring, equipment, upgrades to the existing bar and the creation of a new wine room in the private dining area to house the extensive wine collection.

The East Flamingo location offers about half the space of the original that spans 17,000 square feet in the Commercial Center. Both locations will remain open.

Yes SW does have direct flights from Love. They might not be cheaper than AA from DFW. Generally, the Friday/Sunday AM flights tend to be more expensive and during the week just varies based on the convention and sports schedule for Vegas. Vegas stays fairly busy year round with some off times like the week leading up to Christmas.

If you have any specific time in mind, we can try to give some feedback.

What's the best time to buy airline tickets (out of Dallas) for Vegas?  I'm assuming SW has flights from Love Field.

We went mid-late April this year and it was cheap flights if you're willing to leave early or late. I always like to fly early since traffic is non-existent and it's easy to get an Uber out to the airports or back. Got a great rate on the 2 story suite at Golden Nugget which was a lot of fun. Weather was low 70s at night to high 70s/ low 80s during the day. I think April just might be the best time to go from that standpoint.
