Your Vegas is Showing


Hyper-reality, sensory overload - there's nothing in the world like Vegas

You can argue that it's sleazy, cheesy and completely fake, but Vegas is the adult version of sticking your tongue to a pole in the winter - you have to try it once to make sure it's real.

Last year, Sin City shelled out $52,158,800 to lure Vegas SlotsVegas Slotsvisitors to the desert for a little naughty fun. Playing up the dark side of their current slogan ("What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas"), you really can let it all hang out. The Alibi Generator is the city's high-tech way of wiping your conscience clean - before you even book your tickets.

Lest you start taking all the hype seriously (look what a slippery slope Britney rushed down when she let her Vegas all hang out), a great Vegas vacation doesn't have to be a dangerous cocktail of too little judgment and too much alcohol.

Pacing yourself will let you enjoy your evenings longer (if not entirely responsibly) and if you're lucky you'll even remember some of it. If you can't pace yourself, try these tips to lighten your hangover load:

  • Drink water: Hydrate well during the day and force yourself to drink a glass of water every time you empty your bladder.
  • Take Your B's: Downing a couple of B vitamins before your evening out and another one at dinner time will help your liver process all that alcohol.
  • Say no to coffee: Alcohol and coffee are both diuretics, which fuel that jackhammer pounding away in your head. Opt for juice or a sports drink instead.
  • Order fries with that: Grease soaks up alcohol, so if you can't say no, at least eat something to keep it moving through your system.
  • Don't switch it up: Starting off with beer, moving onto wine during dinner and finishing the night off with Jell-O shooters is a like pre-booking your stomach pumping at emergency. Pick one kind of alcohol for the night and stick with it.

When it's all said and done (and hush-hushed), Your Vegas is ShowingYour Vegas is Showinggetting your Vegas mojo on is supposed to fun - and more than a little immature. As long as it doesn't involve waking up in with "Vinny" tattooed across your butt and a brass ring on your finger, it's all good fun.

When's the last time you let your hair down and let your Vegas all hang out?
