We met Stacy on a trip to Las Vegas looking for models, and we got some creative shots when we pulled out a deck of cards and let Stacy pose with two blackjack hands. Stacy has a killer body and she’s not shy about shoing it off.

Deals in Las Vegas

Caesars Palace

Now that the holiday rush is over, we’ve hit the part of the travel season where you can find some deals out there. But of course that depends on where you’re going and what you want to do. If you’re looking to hit South Beach or go skiing, you’re going to pay top dollar this time of year. On the other hand, if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to hit Las Vegas, you’ll find tons of deals this time of year.

Keep in mind that it will be cooler in Vegas for the next several months, so the whole pool scene is non-existent. That’s probably the main reason things slow down this time of year. But if you’re looking for a luxury weekend with your wife or a sexy date, and you want a great hotel and the chance to see some great Vegas shows, then this timing is perfect. Of course, many people go for the old school reason of gambling in the casinos. Of course you can play these games online at places like 888, but the social aspect of playing in a casino can only be matched in a place like Vegas. Even the local casinos aren’t the same.

Sites like Vegas.com have tons of deal specials, but if you shop around you’ll have plenty of options. This time of year you can even get better prices on the hot casino hotels like Cosmopolital and Aria, or the traditional luxury spots like Wynn and Bellagio. Places like Caesars Palace pictured above have added even more upscale hotels within their main hotel. Here they added the Nobu hotel which offers a unique and upscale experience. Places like this are perfect for a romantic getaway. Plus the wild side of Vegas is always there as well. Your date can also book great spa experiences at many of these hotels. Look for deal packages that offer these as part of the price.

The shows in Vegas are always excellent as well. We’re still partial to the Beatles “Love” show at the Mirage. Even if you’re not a huge fan of their music you will love this show, and your date in particualar will probably love it. But there are plenty of other great shows, and show tickets are sometimes included in these deal packages as well.

Finally, if you’re looking to go with your buddies instead, keep in mind that we have the NFL playoffs this weekend and then the Super Bowl in several weeks. March Madness is just around the corner. Those big weekends may not have as many discounts, but for sports betting they offer some fun times. Enjoy!

  

Winning poker in Las Vegas

With the holiday season, places like Las Vegas and other casino hot spots are loaded with tourists and gamblers. Which makes it a great time to travel and have fun, bit also an opportunity to get some of those tourists dollars in your pocket at the poker tables. It’s also loaded with pros of course with the same idea, so the key is being on your A game. Recently a cabbie in Las Vegas found $300,000 in his cab, which were the winnings of a poker player who left the bag. The cabbie returned the money to the distraught poker player and all was well after he collected a reward. But that just gives you an idea of the money changing hands in places like Vegas in the poker rooms.

Many poker players these days hone their skills by playing online before venturing into the casinos. That’s a great stategy as you can learn a ton by practicing and searching the web to find the hottest tips from the williamhill poker blog and other poker resources. But then you have to take that practice into the real world where there’s a ton of money to be made.

But one thing you’ll have to learn is avoiding the distractions. Just look at the photo above and you’ll see one obvious pitfall. If you’re in Vegas to look at the eye candy or chase them around, then you’re better off avoiding the poker tables. If you’re there to make money and work the poker rooms, then babes and booze need to be off of your mind. It’s easy not to get distracted when you’re at home in front of your laptop, but games in the poker rooms are a different animal.

Then of course you can put your skills to the test in terms of pure poker play but also reading the table and your competition. With the holidays, it should be pretty easy to differentiate the serious gamblers and those on vacation, but that’s a skill you’ll need all of the time. Reading body language and guaging the strengths of other players is something you need to develope with real practice in real casinos.

So take advantage of the holiday surge and get out there.

  

New Year’s Eve Dates in Las Vegas

Cosmopolitan

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, and some of you have come up with the brilliant idea of taking your gal to Las Vegas to ring in the new year with a big party and hopefully some memorable sexy time. Like every other night of the year, there are tons of options in Vegas for New Year’s, and what you choose can have a huge impact on how much fun you have.

The most important decisions will be picking where you stay, and then where you will party. If you’re not limited by budget, then you’re going to want to pick the hottest hotels or maybe one of the newer high end hotels. The Cosmopolitan is the hottest hotel in town these days and you’ll be surrounded by the beautiful people. Also, there are new luxury hotels within the older hotels, like Nobu at Caesar’s Palace. Please like this offer a nice luxury upgrade over the typical Vegas experience. You may not be spending a ton of time in your room, but you want to make that time as enjoyable as possible, and most women appreciate luxury settings. Places like the Bellagio, Aria and Wynn are also excellent choices because the two of you will feel like you’re in a 24/7 party even while you’re hanging out in the casino or just playing poker, as the hotel itself is one of the Vegas hot spots.

Picking a hot hotel is also important for another reason. Unless you have a limo lined up to take you everywhere, you have to consider that taking cabs on New Year’s Eve will be a complete nightmare. The lines will be very long, and it will also be cold out there. Standing in a cab line for an hour is a total buzz kill, so we strongly recommend partying in the hotel where you’re staying. All of the bars and clubs will be full that night, so you don’t necessarily have to be at the hottest club. So if you can’t stay at a place like the Cosmo, you can still have a great time at a mid-level casino like New York, New York. Just find a place to eat and party there so you don’t have to deal with the cabs.

Another cool option includes the rooftop bars like Voodoo or Ghost Bar. These clubs aren’t at the hottest hotels, but watching the fireworks on these rooftop decks can make your whole evening. Also, keep this in mind for all the clubs – don’t plan on going without a table reservation. Yes, bottle service is expensive, but without it you and your date will be standing all night. That’s another guaranteed buzzkill. Also, at the hottest clubs, your table reservation will likely be way off the beaten path unless you have a solid connection with a host who will take care of you.

So be smart and really think through all of the details. You’re going to have fun just about anywhere so make sure to minimize things like waiting for cabs or bad tables that might derail your plans. Have fun!

  

Bellagio Poker Room still rules

Bellagio

The changes in Las Vegas have been stunning over the years. With the recent addition of City Center and also the hip and trendy Cosmopolitan hotel, the standard for the best spots in Vegas is constantly evolving.

Still, many of the established names still hold up even with the new competition. The Bellagio for example is still one of the best spots in Las Vegas, particularly if you’re looking for an upscale experience with a female friend.

It’s also still one of the top destinations for poker. The Bellagio Poker Room remains one of the best in town and the spot where many pros go to play. Everything is top notch, from the luxury surroundings to the dealers and the cocktails. It’s open 24/7 with around 30 tables. Of course you’re not coming here if you have a small bankroll. The minimums are higher than you’ll find in many other rooms on the Strip and you’ll see some huge pots here.

Then you have Bobby’s Room, the ultimate spot for poker high rollers. It’s described on the Bellagio website as follows: “Be one of the privileged few to get in on the high-stakes excitement inside our signature poker room. Decked out in winning style, this coveted experience pays tribute to its namesake, Bobby Baldwin, the 1978 World Series of Poker Champion and Chief Design & Construction Officer, President & CEO, CityCenter. Within its storied walls are tables providing maximum privacy and concentration.” If you’re heading to Las Vegas with a serious bankroll and an appetite for some white-knuckle poker, then this is your spot!

Of course many players love the online world of playing poker. It’s a completely different experience but many enjoy the convenience of being able to play at any time. It’s excellent for poker practice. But of course there are all sorts of issues as well like deposits. If you’re having trouble depositing funds on online poker sites you can read why credit cards are being declined can be read here. Hopefully we’ll get to the point where the regulators finally acknowledge this is a game of skill and even out the rules for everyone. Until then places like the Bellagio offer a real experience for poker that you really can’t match online.
