10 Things We Learned from our Trip to Vegas

As you all might have heard (via our many drunken texts from the land of Sin), CollegeCandy was invited on a trip to Las Vegas last week courtesy of the fine people of Planet Hollywood and Harrah’s resorts. We always knew we had to hit up the Vegas strip, so we accepted. And then did cartwheels around the office.


After we finished chest bumping, we made a list of all the things we wanted to do and, despite our inability to find someone to marry (the men of askmen.com rejected our advances), we definitely lived it up for the 4 days we were there. And now, after the 7 days of it took us to recover from one MASSIVE hangover, we are back to share with you the 10 things we learned on our trip to The Happiest Place on Earth.

1. The best chaser for a vodka soda is 25 layers of chocolate cake.

2. An all-you-can-eat buffet is NOT a challenge. (But it is an opportune time to wear an empire waist dress, like the chic and comfy Criss Cross Applesauce dress from Lulus.com.)

3. Bottle service isn’t just for douchebags. Seriously, it might be the best thing to ever happen. If you have the money to splurge, it totes makes a difference. No elbowing your way past drunk patrons to get that vodka soda. No tip toeing back to the table as you attempt not to spill that martini. Just sit back and let your personal waitress pour you one (or many).

4. Elvis is alive!

5. And has really bad breath.

6. Bros really aren’t that bad. In fact, they don’t pop their collars, wear ridiculous hats or even call us “babes.” Who knew?

7. Life is good when you’re a high roller. Planet Hollywood (and all of Harrah’s properties) reward their best patrons with a Diamond Card that lets you bypass lines, get one-on-one service, and secures you a misting chair by the pool. And, trust me, when it’s 105 outside, that misting chair is KEY. As is instant access to the buffets when you’re hungover and jonesing for some waffles.

8. Wanna be a high roller? Pick a game and learn the rules. Then get up close and personal to the pit boss and the dealer. (Miss you, Gil!) They won’t be able to hook you up with any extra chips, but they will make all that time spent at the tables way more fun. And if that doesn’t work, just get really, really drunk and bet it all. Make it rain, baby!

9.Vegas is the happiest place on earth. You like good food? Try Koi at Planet Hollywood. You like booze? You can get an Eiffel Tower full of it at The Paris. Enjoy shopping? Check out City Center – they’ve got every. single. designer on the planet. You like boys? They’re everywhere. And they’re drunk. There is literally something for everyone. Which makes me wonder: why didn’t I go to UNLV?

10. Vegas hangovers are no joke.

You want a chance to learn a few things in Las Vegas? Harrah’s is hooking you up with 15% off all room reservations through December 30, 2010. Pick a date (Fall Break, anyone??), grab your girls and get ready for the best time of your life. Just don’t smoocheroo with Elvis. Trust.
