    1. Show- Le Reve

    2.  Free Attraction - Lions at MGM and Fountains at Bellagio

    3. Bar/Lounge/Club- XS- Carnival Court at Harrah's

    4. Restaurant- Margaritaville, Mon Ami Gabi and NINE. Also for a great value, Maggiano's. Food is outstanding and reasonable.

    5. Other random thing if any- Remind them they cannot hail a cab anywhere but at a hotel. Confusing to people who have never been there. Fashion Show Mall is fab and they have a food court with easy and cheap eats. ( I used to live there and since the Mall looks a bit different from the outside, a lot of people don't even know it is a mall!)

    Ditto cab hailing!!! And don't cross the street unless the lights tell you too.....cuz if you get hit, it's your fault to pay for the drivers damages

    Thanks a bunch for the faves! I definately need to go to Firefly when we come home (Lots of good reviews and I haven't ever been there), and O'sheas...I'm a fan of that place too, somehow my FI tends to lose less money when we go there than most other places on the strip.  
    Would never have thought about telling them to not try and hail a cab from the streets, super advice!
