Figuring out what to wear at EDC
The Electric Daisy Carnival is the biggest electronic dance music event in the United States, drawing about 140,000 fans to the Motor Speedway for each night of a three-day summer festival. Part of the fun is dressing up in crazy neon outfits (that may or may not include slapping electrical tape across your nipples). You don't have to get too wild about it, but try to do something more than just a T-shirt and jeans.
Walking through the Cactus Garden at Ethel M
Every winter, the Ethel M chocolate factory in Henderson decks out its outdoor cactus garden in holiday lights. It's one of the most romantic things you can do for free during the cold winter months. Just don't forget to walk inside for a few bites of chocolate.
Here's how it works: you grab a group of friends and reserve a table at one of the busiest nightclubs on the Strip. Sit back and relax while a server in a skimpy dress pours glass after glass of alcohol (usually gin or vodka) topped off with a mixer (usually orange or cranberry juice) with a slice of lemon or lime. What may cost $20 to make yourself at home will cost hundreds of dollars (if not more) at the club. Sounds great! Now, who's paying for it?
Discovering new restaurants that aren't on the Strip
Sin City's reputation as a hot culinary destination goes far beyond the Strip. Other Mama in the west valley, Chada Street in Chinatown, and Kitchen Table in Henderson are all prime examples that prove location isn't everything.
Rolling your eyes when someone asks, "Where are you from?"
Because it's just weird when the salesperson at the mall treats you like a tourist. Some people actually live in Las Vegas. And they love it.
