Hi all,

I love to gamble and drink. So I guess Vegas is the place to me. I am looking to go for my 21st this Summer (30th August), which shows would you recommend? (As it will be for a week therefore I will not be able to do everything as I plan to spend half my time in the casino!!). Also as far as prostitutes go are they illegal in LV as I'm thinking when in Rome?

Thanks

Stiffy

(from Wikipedia) Nevada is the only U.S. state to allow some legal prostitution. In most of Nevada's rural counties, brothels are legalized and heavily regulated. Prostitution outside the licensed brothels is illegal throughout Nevada. Prostitution is illegal in the major metropolitan areas of Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City, where most population lives (more than 90% of Nevada citizens live in a county where prostitution is illegal, as brothels are situated in isolated rural areas). Currently eight out of Nevada's 16 counties have active brothels; as of June/July 2008 there were 28 legal brothels in Nevada.

The brothels are legal in the rural counties, but are expensive. Not really an option IMO. Of course there are 'pros' working the hotels, streets, etc. But, it is not worth the risk IMO. Our police run stings all the time. A female police officer dresses and acts available. If you make an offer of sex for money, you will be arrested. Then you get to pay a healthy fine and go to 'john school'. This will ruin your holiday.

Go to our dance clubs and find someone who likes you for who you are, not for your wallet. My best advice.
