Beyond the urban nightlife of Las Vegas city streets and downtown gambling, lies a world that celebrates art and beauty. At the famous 18b Art District one can experience the real culture and custom of this legendry town. The district is a main attraction of Downtown Las Vegas for both the locals as well as outsiders. As the name goes, the place features art and entertainment at its best. In the beginning, the district stretched about 18 blocks that fall across Main Street near Charleston Boulevard to Hoover Avenue. Now it has further extended to places around Commerce Street and Fourth Street.
The Art District came to be known as a result of markets that developed around merchandized art forms rendered in this region. Hundreds of art galleries and exhibitions, street shows, antique stores and art supplies dominate the area. Tourists, art lovers, art collectors, and artists frequent this part of Downtown either to shop for exquisite artworks or to simply savor the sight of artistic delights. It is known for its splendid street fair with numerous fast food stalls and barbeques. Its streets crowd up with shoppers, day-trippers and travelers during every occasion and event in Las Vegas. The art fairs and festivals conducted in here bring about thousands of visitors from in and around the city. It is the most colorful spot in Las Vegas where anyone can have a great time with their friends or families without having to spend a fortune at luxury hotels or casinos.
Several cultural groups and societies in the state including the American Institute of Graphic Art have recognized the place and have been partaking in its development. Since October 2002, the authorities declared every First Friday to be celebrated as a grand party across the entire 18 blocks of the Art District. Since this initiation, the popularity of Art District grew beyond the state boundaries. Artists from all over United States reach here to display their talents. Thousands of artists send their works of fine arts and paintings to be selected for exhibitions. The art shows and sales go on till 10 pm in the night but the festivities and partying continues past midnight. Besides the art, the street performances of magic shows and dancers can enchant you beyond your imagination.
It is a grand venue for socializing and meeting new friends and also shopping for designer accessories or paintings at great prices. You can participate and enjoy the First Friday block parties for free but for entering the spot a nominal fee of 2 dollars is levied. It is a cultural event that implores the soul of Las Vegas and is organized in coordination with the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
Art District also houses the famous Art Factory which is a distinguished center for all sorts of artistic relishes ranging from modern art paintings and photography to yoga and dance.

If you’ve never been to Las Vegas (Sin City), then you should know that there are actual rules and laws to be follow while you’re in Sin City. For you veterans, this will be a refresher course. However, remember to keep an open mind: you might just learn something new, because Vegas is forever changing. HAVE FUN!
Take Notes of anything you may want to remember:
Before you arrive…
Do bring money when you come.
Do bring money when you come. “CASH IS KING” in Las Vegas! If you are on a budget, you can survive with just $300-$400 as long as you spend wisely. When I talk about budgeting this means you will just be catching all the “free” shows and missing out on all the other great shows. Please keep in mind that the free shows are not all that bad at all.
Don’t expect to find the same old Las Vegas that you see in old movies portraying Vegas.
Vegas is forever changing. Within the past 10 years or so there have been many locations demolished to make room for new hotels and casinos.
Do plan to get a few great bargains.
For you bargain hunters, there are many old establishments still hanging in there. When I say old establishments, I am talking about downtown Las Vegas and other Hotels/Casinos not located near the main strip. The old establishments of Las Vegas are constantly trying to compete with the dancing fountains of the Bellagio and the spit-fire volcanoes. So how are they still making it? Through the deep discounted dining experiences they offer visitors. In Vegas, you can still find a T-bone steak for $4.95. (You just have to know where to look.)
Don’t come to Vegas during peak times.
Yes, everyone wants to get away during the weekend. But if you’re planning on a weekend trip to Vegas, be ready to spend some extra money. Traveling to Vegas in the middle of the week, Christmas and when conventions are on hiatus, is a great way to enjoy the city without the crowds or the expense. Another great time to visit Vegas, if you can stand the heat, is during the mid-summer, when it’s too hot for most visitors.
Do come to Vegas during peak times.
Yes, come to Las Vegas during peak weekends or holidays if your out to just be surrounded by a lot of positive spirited people. If your like the average party goer then traveling to Las Vegas during peak weekends would be ideal so long as you plan in advance. You can find more details on tips for planning in advance for peak weekends HERE.
Don’t expect to get the most out of your Vegas vacation if you haven’t planned in advance.
Las Vegas is a large city with a lot to choose from — casinos, spas, restaurants, shows. It can be overwhelming. To avoid delays once you arrive in Vegas, plan ahead. Map out where you want to go, see and do while in Sin City. Don’t waste one minute. Once you land, hit the ground running.
Do play the slots
Do find out about the slots available in Las Vegas casinos, as these are the most popular casino games by far and likewise, online slots are a big favourite in online casinos too, and can help you understand how to play the games before your visit.
“Las Vegas Taxi Cab Drivers and Free Rides to Gentleman’s Clubs”
Here’s a story about me and my friends stumbling upon a Vegas Secret, something that you can’t find anywhere else. It all began one spring break weekend. Some and my friends and I were bar hoping all around town at night drinking and of course looking to meet new women. To our surprise we didn’t get any luck. (story of our lives right?)
It is approaching 2:00 am and we’re still all out of luck and the club lines are ridiculous and expensive to hop from one place to another. We asked ourselves, “What else can we do right now at this hour”? Of course! Strip clubs!
It wasn’t hard to convince everyone in the party to agree on going to but I’m sure you could’ve figure that part out. Questions were being raised about the strip clubs:
Which strip club is the best in Las Vegas?
Which has the best girls?
Which has super cheap VIP Rooms?
Which has the cheapest cover fee?
Guess what…none of us at the time knew the answer to these questions (mind you this was many moons ago). We decided to go ask a cab driver since we were going to be taking one anyways.
So we’re out in front of the Palms Casino in Las Vegas and waiting in line for a taxi. We get in and ask him the questions we had previously asked each other. Can you guess what kind of response we got? The cab driver proceeds into naming 2 or 3 gentleman’s club and closing his sentence with, “If you pick one of those I’ll take you guys there for free and give you $10.00 each”. We’re all drunk and asking ourselves… “WTF?!?!” He was not joking. Apparently taxi cab drivers get kickbacks back then for taking males to these clubs and less if they bring a female thats why they could afford to give us such great deals.
So the year is 2008….and your asking…does this still work?
The answer is yes. I’ve tried it still this year and 2 out of 3 cab drivers will still take you to the gentleman’s clubs for free but they will not pay you just to go (I am assuming with politics, economy, etc. they are not getting as much kickbacks anymore).
What else can you ask them for before you leave the cab?
Since they are no longer getting more kickbacks, aside from getting the free cab rides..try asking them for free club entry cards into clubs in the Casinos. Almost every cab driver has those free entry / vip entry cards for almost any club. It’ll save you a couple bucks.
Have a great time everyone!

How to Skip the 2 hour Club Lines in Vegas VIP Style
I’d thought I’d inform everyone that this may not always work in advance. I’ve tried this at most major clubs in Las Vegas and it has worked bout 8 out of 10 times. Sometimes I’ve noticed it did not work for sure because of special engagements the night of the club.
Las Vegas is an great place to gamble, eat, and especially party like a rockstar. If you are impatient like me and always have women with you, you won’t want to wait in those 2 hour club lines. Most of the popular
clubs in Las Vegas have a two hour line up if you arrive after 10:00pm (roughly). Bribing a bouncer might be the best decision you ever make while your partying in Las Vegas. Everyone working in Las Vegas knows that money talks and you can have literally anything if you are willing to pay for it.
These bouncers need extra money since they probably only make about $11/hour. You are simply redistributing the wealth from your pocket to his. It’s a win-win situation. In order for you to smoothly bribe a bouncer into letting you into the club, you have to know what you are doing. You can either walk up to the front door bouncer and ask him how it’s going or find one walking along the sidelines watching the lines. Tell him you are looking to get your party into this party. You should probably give him $20 to $40 a person.
Don’t worry about the cost since you probably(you can always ask him to double check) won’t have to pay the door fee which is usually $40 anyways. You are getting into the club and spending the same amount of money to skip the line. While everyone else stands at the back of the line complaining, you will be downing shots of tequilas with models from LA. Be sure to hand the money in the form of a handshake. You don’t want to bring attention to yourself or the bouncers. Be confident when you walk up to the bouncer as if he is your long time friend. Being a passive pansy in Las Vegas doesn’t pay off unless your there just to gamble and not party. Have fun in Vegas and be sure to “grease” your bouncer to bypass the line.
Have a great time at the Clubs!
Things to do in Las Vegas
I just thought I’d share with everyone a list I have used in the past as reference up until I’ve become very familiar with Las Vegas. I still carry 1 – 2 copies of this list just in case someone in my party needs a good simple reference. Generally speaking, people within my Las Vegas party splits up during certain times in the day and they always seem to thank me for it. =)
Here’s a list of 10 free things to do in Las Vegas:
1. Tresure Island’s Sirens of TI Show: This begins with a 17th century clash between a group of beautiful, tempting sirens and a band of renegade pirates. With their mesmerizing and powerful song the Sirens lure the pirates to their cove, stir up a tempest strong enough to sink a ship, and transform Sirens’ Cove into a 21st century party. Experience music, dance, excitement and seduction – nightly at 7:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m., and 11:30 p.m. in Sirens’ Cove at the front entrance of Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. (My personal favorite)
2. The flaming volcano at the Mirage. Every 15 minutes from 7 p.m. to midnight, the Mirage’s faux volcano erupts only a few steps from Las Vegas Boulevard, sending fire 100 feet into the sky and transforming a waterfall into streams of molten lava.
3. The Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo Las Vegas. This resort is host to a collection of more than 300 birds, including a flock of pink Chilean flamingos. African penguins, swans, ducks, and turtles also cavort amid lush tropical foliage imported from all over the world.
4. The dancing fountains of Bellagio. The Bellagio hotel opened in 1998. Every afternoon and evening, the hotel’s man made turquoise lake becomes the staging ground for a 1,000-foot-long fountain display. Watch jets of water burst 240 feet in the air, sweeping and dancing up the lake.
5. White tiger exhibit at the Mirage. Famed illusionists Siegfried & Roy once presented a world-famous magic show complete with lions and rare white tigers at the Mirage hotel.
6. Caesars Palace. Stroll to the Forum Shops, and watch a seven-minute show of special effects as Roman statues come to life.
7. Gondola watching at The Venetian. Whether you’ve visited Venice or not, you’re bound to enjoy the surreal experience of watching gondoliers maneuver their elegant wooden boats through the “canals” of a 500,000-square-foot shopping mall.
8. Circus Circus Hotel and Casino Circus Acts. They fly through the air with the greatest of ease… Awe and wonder are always just within your reach at Circus Circus. Experience the world’s largest permanent circus, highlighting the center stage of the Carnival Midway daily. See performances daily from 11 a.m. – midnight
9. The Rio All Suite Hotel Show : Masquerade Village Sky Show. The excitement is hotter than ever at Rio’s Masquerade Village with the Show in the Sky! All-new sets. All-new costumes. All-new choreography. Even if you’ve seen it before, Rio’s all-new Show in the Sky is a must-see again. It’s a unique performance every time, with three different shows featuring stunning dancers in eye-popping costume fashions from the likes of DKNY and Victoria’s Secret. Your jaw will drop as these talented performers perform all-new routines to edgy music as fantasy floats glide above the crowd, creating an energetic and dynamic musical celebration. The all-new Show in the Sky is performed hourly from 7 pm until midnight every Thursday through Sunday.
10. Fremont Street Experience. This is located not on the regular Las Vegas Strip but rather in downtown Las Vegas on Fremont Street. This is a must see 90 foot high, four block long electronic canopy that presents spectacular sight and sound shows. This pedestrian promenade was built to attract visitors to the Downtown area of Las Vegas. It is surrounded by 10 casino/hotels. Every night at dusk the shows begin and continue throughout the night until midnight. The Light and Sound show features over 2 million lights and a 28 speaker, 540,000 watt sound system. Definitely, one of a kind!

Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone in advance for taking the time to read all about my Vegas “unconventional” news.
Today I’d like to talk about how I received $75.00 in cash money in Las Vegas! I call these people handing out free money, etc… “Solicitors” if you will. Their jobs are primarily to bug you to join them for a so called “Tour” to view some real estate and time share locations in Nevada. You’ll have to fill out some paperwork about personal information so that their company can bug you after. In exchange for your precious information and time, they’ll either comp you a free night stay or in my case pay me $75.00 cash! Every offer differs. Sometimes more sometimes less.
If you’re really bored/broke, or just looking to get some free money, rooms, etc keep it in mind!
My tour lasted about 3 hours. I just drank a lot of alcohol before the tour and then went with my friend. Total we made $150.00!!!
Where can you find these so called “Cash Giveaway/Solicitors”?
These people are found in most Casinos. They are sometimes hard to find. Keep an eye out for a booth that they may have setup in the Casino you are in. If you can’t find one…. just go ask a hotel employee where to go on those real estate/timeshare “Tours” and they’ll point you in the right direction.
another beer! Cheers!
