    And I'm reaching out to any and all Monkies for thoughts/input on what to do. Don't get me wrong. We've been planning this for several weeks, and we have a dang good idea of what to do. Drive-thru chapel to re-new our vows, trip to Laughlin to compare what makes them so good to us in Tahoe, shopping, eats, drinks, a show or two. We're just looking for ideas to add to our event. Now, before you post, yes, lots of drinking and the horizontal hula are planned. And we will NOT consider drugs or swapping, so keep those out. Maybe some of you remember our other trip, and one of the pics gave the impression of Sammy Davis, Jr. looking down her top? Well, I'm the ONLY one that'll be looking down her top, ok??? So none of those ideas.

    What say you, oh great travelers of RM, of some of the celebratory things we should consider?? The "known by locals only" locations that will make our anni one to remember?

    BTW, neither of us have been with the same sig-o for 15 years, so this is a very special time for both of us........




    I have a feeling Alaina is proud of us.............................

    Alaina is definitely proud of you guys.

    Hit the M resort/casino in south vegas. The buffet is great with free beer and wine, the prime rib at the steak house is magnificent.

    Golden Steer steak house on Sahara is great. It's where I ate this 24oz+ beast.


    Indoor sky diving

    Indoor rock climbing at the Red Rock Climbing Center

    more later

    Why go to vegas if you are not going to be wrecked the whole time? Take a geriatric cruise or something.

    If you are looking for an incredible photo op check out the Neon Museum.

    http://www.neonmuseum.org



    I looked into it for my wife and I when we got married but our budget didn't have room.

    What kind of thing are you guys looking for? Historical sites, outdoor activities, food, parties, romance?

    I think he's from the Reno area so he probably sees plenty of Tahoe.

    My wife and I went skydiving at Sky Dive Las Vegas when we were there. It was a great experience, if you have ever thought about doing it, I highly recommend them. The funnel a ton of people through their Drop Zone and have it down.
    I would also suggest Mesa Grill in Cesar's, order the pork, you will not be disappointed.
    The Hoover Dam is a cool experience.
    The roller coaster at NY/NY is a fun $10 ride.
    I have always wanted, but have never had the chance to helicopter to the Grand Canyon

    Does this mean strip clubs are out?

    If your wife is hot, take her to the Agent Provocateur store in the forum. Trust me, you'll thank yourself for blowing $600 on lingerie.

    If you like the history of my home state, go to the Clark County museum.

    If you like rad ****, make an appointment to tour the Neon Graveyard. You need reservations.

    I'm a fish nerd, so I really like the aquarium at Mandalay Bay. While you're there, go have shots at Red Star. I also hear there's a Five Below somewhere in Vegas now.

    If you're a dick like I am, take her to the Tiffanys at the Bellagio, and show her all the rings you could afford if it wasn't for bikes. That goes over well.

    If you're driving in from Mammoth, stop by the Shady Lady ranch and show her how lucky she is to have you, and what her life would be like without you in it.

    (Man, I really am an asshole...)

    There's a place called Olives at the Bellagio. Good food. Great food in fact.

    Well now, these are all excellent ideas. Where do I begin? First off, why Vegas? When air is $10 total/rt, hotel is $225 plus taxes total for 5 nights, and rental car is about $100 through Costco, it playfully "strong armed" us into our decision.

    Now---

    UN-- I'll have to stay away from the beef. Don't get me wrong, I love some good red meat, just have to do it away from and out of respect for the wife. She tries to keep me healthy, but what she doesn't know I eat is healthy for me, haha.... The indoor sky diving is possible.

    EOD-- Thought about a cruise, however, timing and I'm a bit claustrophobic. I need my room to roam.

    Rock-- Like the neon museum idea. A possibility. We "want it all"-- romance, hence the drive through for renewals, outdoors will be our trip to Laughlin, and we are working on our gastro-feast as we keep researching.

    JohnE-- Gotta get out of Dodge once in a while, way out of Dodge, which means yes, I do see a lot of Tahoe.

    MTB-- Like the rollercoaster idea, and we are thinking of a chopper over the Strip if we can find a good price/discount. Maybe Hoover Dam to see the new bridge that's been built.

    Dirt-- My wife will be doing enough stripping for me, so that's out, unless I can talk her into Glitter Gulch while we check out Freemont Street for the zip line/light show/deep-fried twinkies at Mermaids. You would have to mention Tiffany's, jerk.

    X3-- Maybe I can find her a deal at the Pawn Stars show????

    DM-- As long as hell has triple-black-diamond runs, we'll all be there in our own time.....


    BTW, thank you all for your indeas. Like I mentioned, we do have some, but we're just 2 simple folks, living a sheltered life, and wanting to expand our audio/visual/gastro/intimate minds, winkwink.......

    Believe:
    to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so: Only if one believes in something can one act purposefully.


    I really think that believe might be the wrong word here bubba. I know, for a fact, via a preponderance of the evidence, that we're going direct to Hell, do not collect $200.

    Well in that case, if I get there first I will save you a seat at the bar and have the whiskey waiting, I only ask you do the same for me.....

    I am pretty sure at this point we have reserve seating waiting for us. But if I beat you down there, I'll get you an Old Granddad and a stripper. It might be a dude, but at that point its "any port in a storm" time.

    1. You can never have enough stripping. Even if someone is just coming over to paint the house, there is no such thing as too much stripping.

    2. Freemont is a scene. I love trying to hump the random dressed up mutants.

    3. Tiffany's... What can I say, I'm here to help.

    4. I am still sticking to my guns on the idea of buying some expensive lingerie and seeing where you day can go.

    And have you two considered getting some tattoos while in Vegas?

    All of my best ideas in life have come from tattoos acquired in Las Vegas. Don't you judge me DM.

    Golly gee, what was to be a simple call for help/input for a very special day has turned out to be, well, very RM-esque....... Now I really know I'm asking for input in the right place!!!!

    Dirt, with all due respect, there is only one tattoo I'd ever consider getting. Allow me to visually design it for you--- On Alaina's eve of her bday's, I'd trace her hand inside mine. I'd have her 4yo-sized hand, with angel wings, and her name from her one Father's Day gift she made and signed for me in preschool. If it could be colored with pink and sage green, it'd be perfect. The question is location...... either over my heart, or on my right butt cheek where she would swat me every time I was getting ready for a shower. Oh, she had some "smack" in her swing, too.

    Now, as for the lingerie, well, what use is it when she'll be out of it in, oh, 2-5mins?? Unless, maybe, I can convince her to walk the Strip wearing it in high heels?????

    You use this phrase when buying lingerie..... Honey lets get something that is more fun to take off than it was for you to put on....

    A friend of mine pulled a pretty baller "romance" move with his lady. He took her to the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Las Vegas casino and watched the Ballagio dancing fountain show from there.
