Maybe your boys won't care because they haven't been to Vegas and everything will be new but that's the reality of the situation so keep that in mind.
    I hear this often which is why I haven't been. I just don't see the hype if I'm not going with a few grand to spend.

    Yea if you're going with like a $500-750 budget for 2-3 days you won't really have any fun unless you're happy gambling the entire time and maybe hitting up a few random bars that you could find in any major city.

    One cheap option to Las Vegas Nevada is to pull up a few miles to Las Vegas New Mexico. As an aside (Longmire) Sp? Was filmed there.

    Flights and hotels can be found pretty cheap for Vegas. The problem is anything and everything you want to do there is expensive. Except maybe sitting, gambling small amounts of money and drinking free booze on the casino floor. But still the party scene in Vegas is a blast and if you like playing poker I've had an absolute blast sitting in some of the poker rooms in Vegas. I've never even dared go to a strip club in Vegas because I just imagine it being super pricey.

    Yeah some of the clubs won't even let you in unless you have girls with you. Or are getting bottle service like you mentioned. So at minimum find a bachelorette party and pair up with them while you're there to go to any of the fun clubs.

    Depending on the crowd size in town, limousine service is pretty competitive. It’s cheaper and more comfy than taking taxi service. Vegas is spread out so transportation is vital. Car rentals are high and very limiting as to the number of people you can transport. Not to mention if you are partying you don’t need to be driving.

    Uber and Lyft are the two cheapest transportation options now.

    Not if you have a large party of people. Say 15 or so. It would take maybe 3 vechicles to transport a group. The stretch limos can handle that many. The Mercedes unit can also. I forget what it’s called but I was transported in one recently with some of my friend’s VIP folk in Oklahoma City.

    Good info. May have to look at a hotel + flight option. Will also hope to find some deals on a limo for the main night out. My hope is it have all the invitees' money before we get there. I def don't want to pay for anything I don't have to.
