Nobody’s perfect, but we wanted to showcase some of the common blunders in Las Vegas that annoy the crap out of us. Hopefully these goofs can be found, learned about, and avoided before they happen.
1. Walking Slowly in Crowded Areas of the Casino
The casino and hotel designs and decorations in Las Vegas are eccentric, over-the-top, and downright amazing. If you find yourself walking through such areas gazing in awe you are likely walking extremely slow and blocking countless people behind you. Move the hell out of the way, there are people that have places to be.
2. Misjudging Distances
No matter what you may think, everything on the Strip seems closer than it really is. It’s probably due to its large scale and the fact that tourists can see everything from just about everywhere. Just because you can see the Wynn from the MGM Grand it is NOT a five minute stroll. Stop being late.
3. Not Using Birth Control
Many people come to Vegas to lose control of real life. While this enjoyment can be fun, making poor decisions that have long lasting effects is not. Be spontaneous, but make sure everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
4. Barefoot Anywhere
If you know your heels are going to hurt for your night out, simply don’t wear them. Go with something else. There is nothing worse than seeing a group of female stragglers limping along Las Vegas Blvd. trying to get back to their hotel with bare feet and fully black stained bottoms.
5. Thinking Prostitution is Legal in Vegas
While almost anything does go in Las Vegas, one of the largest misconceptions rules them all, and that is thinking that prostitution is legal. It is not legal anywhere in Clark County, which is where Las Vegas resides. Just because people pass out porno cards all over the strip (ones that end up littering our streets), don’t ask me where to get prostitutes. You’re on your own.
6. Not Hydrating
Las Vegas is in the desert. So yes it gets extremely hot and dry here, especially in the summer. Many party tourists will try and push themselves with pool parties, dayclubs, and nightclubs all in a row. We recommend only the true party professionals push the hydration limits. Alcohol is a diuretic and causes the body to lose more water than it takes in. Combine that with the heat, and you’ve got quite a challenge. Take the time to hydrate throughout your stay in Las Vegas. You’ll likely end up being able to attend more of the wildly fun events, and will probably avoid the potential extreme hangover.
7. Not Using No Cover Nightclubs to Get On The Guest List
Dealing with promoters in Las Vegas is annoying, stressful, and unreliable. Partiers in Vegas now have the option to be their own promoter with NoCoverNightclubs.com. Know exactly what events are going on at which venues, and put yourself on the guest list in under 30 seconds. From there we do the rest and make sure the doormen have your name to get in. Don’t be left outside of the fun.
