How expensive is a trip to Vegas (if we aren’t gambling)? I feel like it’d be super expensive but any thoughts on how to keep it affordable/general price range for food & going out for a weekend?

I’ve gone basically for free before. I lived in LA, drove up, got free entry to clubs, and ate Taco Bell a bunch. Hotel was booked on points so basically it was the cost of gas and a couple burritos for a weekend 😬

Tropicana is a Hilton property if you have Hilton points. They’ll give you a food voucher if you have status. So breakfast & hotel are free at that point. There are very cheap buffets as an option for lunch & dinner. I’ve also spent $100 on the seafood tower appetizer at the Cosmo so it all depends on what you want to do. Gambling gives you the free drink and possibly free entertainment and food option.

During the summer you can go for free by sitting thru timeshare pitches.

Recommend having the most attractive girl in your group reach out to some promoters on Instagram to see what bottle service deals might be available. If you don’t want the table life then check out what the ticket prices are for given shows at the various big clubs (Omnia, XS, Hakkasan, etc) and then expect to pay at least 1.5 times that in drinks unless you pregame really hatd

Are you using hotel points? And Airline points to get there? Hard to quantify without details and where you want to stay. There are a lot of cheap and expensive options.

Probably paying for air bnb/hotel and flight, but more concerned about club entrance and drink prices

Depends on what are you going to do there. If not gambling then just going out might be expensive. Good dinner places are above average price wise. Drinks at nightclubs for $20. Chilling by the pool and drinks/food can add up quickly. All in all could be $300 a day

Expect to pay ~50 for club entry per head

Are you M or F? Was in Vegas recently with my girlfriends and we only paid for food (v cheap), hotel was about $150 and airfare was $150 or so too. So all in all <$450 for the weekend. Guys will generally be paying substantially more

If you go with a few friends the hotel ends up being really affordable. Airfare may not be ideal depending on where you live in the States.

What is your age? What is the composition of your party, gender-wise and quantity?

These days, aside from food and lodging, Las Vegas is 100% free for women, and generally 100% free for parties where the ratio of women to men is greater than 1:1.

Performance review was not what I expected and they did my review calls based on the review. I feel hurt, especially because some of the examples given of negative feedback are either things I was told “not to worry about” or things that actually weren’t my fault, and I wasn’t aware was an issue so I didn’t escalate (didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus). I’m worried, my anxiety is at an all time high and I feel hurt. Has anyone had this happen?
