French fries are one of the most popular foods in America and you’ll find them on the menu of just about every type of restaurant you go to. What’s not to love? Crispy, salty, deep fried potatoes? Yes, please!

We also love all of the endless varieties of fries from curly to waffle and crinkle cut. And there are so many ways to top them and so many sauces to dip them in.

If you’re looking for creative takes on where to find the best french fries in Las Vegas, we have a list for you. Here’s where to get your fry fix next time you’re in town.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips

Famed British chef Gordon Ramsay serves up some tasty chips at his Fish and Chips restaurant at The LINQ Promenade.

Sure, you can get them just with natural sea salt, but we prefer them “dirty” (with toppings).
The Dirty #1 option features chipotle, jalapeno, pork chorizo, red onion, chives, parsley and cotija cheese.
Dirty #2 is topped with truffle, Parmesan and chives and Dirty #3 includes bacon, cheddar cheese and green onions.

Prices from: $6.99.

Haute Doggery

What’s better than fries? Fries covered in cheese and gravy. You can get this Canadian favorite, poutine, at Haute Doggery at The LINQ Promenade. The fries are topped with cheese curds and brown gravy.
You can also just get regular fries or chili cheese fries at Haute Doggery and we love their fry sauces: Belgium style aioli, truffle aioli or chipotle ranch.

Prices from: $4.99.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club

Want some fries with your laughs? Head to Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club at The LINQ Promenade. The club has a nice menu of small bites, including fries. Enjoy them with just a touch of sea salt or go all out with the loaded fries, topped with hatch chiles and smoked brisket chili.

Prices from: $7.

BEER Park

We know tater tots aren’t technically fries, but they are so good we had to include them.

We love the Loaded Tots at BEER PARK at Paris Las Vegas with crispy bacon, herb sour cream, beer cheese sauce and parsley.

If you want strictly fries, you can get those here too. Dirty fries come with cheddar cheese, green onion, fresh jalapeno, bacon, brisket and pico de gallo. The Gilroy Garlic fries are topped with fresh chopped garlic, Parmesan and a black pepper baconaise.

Prices from: $7.95.

Virgil’s Real BBQ

Fries go great with barbecue and the Trainwreck Fries at Virgil’s Real BBQ at The LINQ Promenade are no exception. You’ll get a pile of fresh, hot fries topped with melted cheddar, jack cheese, smoked bacon, scallions and jalapenos. Dip them in ranch dressing, served on the side.

Prices from: $10.95.

Sticky Chicken

It’s all about the chicken at this restaurant, but you’ll want to pair it with a side of fries. Street Fries at Sticky Chicken inside The LINQ Hotel + Experience come in a variety of styles. Go simple with sea salt or cheese sauce – or you can step things up with The Mess, which includes smoked brisket chili, green onions, bacon and cheese sauce.

We also like the Steak & Eggs fries with Philly cheese steak, peppers, onions, cheese sauce and a sunny-side up egg.

Prices from: $4.99.

Dirt Dog

Hot dogs and French fries are the perfect pairing. Dirt Dog at the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s Las Vegas serves up tasty hot dogs with lots of delicious toppings and their fries are topped with plenty of goodness too.

You can’t miss the elote fries with corn, lime mayo, chili powder, cotija cheese, cilantro and bacon.

Controversial opinion alert: Monday sucks. Even what would be a perfectly OK Monday can cast a shadow on those last few remaining hours of the weekend, so you really have to eke out every last ounce of fun before getting back to the grind. And that’s what Sunday Funday is.

Las Vegas was practically built around “every last ounce of fun,” so you can put together an epic Sunday Funday itinerary to start the week off on the right note. Gather your crew, make a checklist of must-dos from our inspiration below and here’s to a day that’s perfectly your own!

You’ve Got to Start With Brunch

It’s going to be a long day, so start your Sunday Funday off with the most essential meal-that’s-kind-of-two-meals: Brunch.

There’s a wealth of brunchy goodness in Las Vegas for all tastes. For starters, Favorite Bistro at The LINQ Promenade is a recent French bistro addition that serves brunch, with delights like Brioche-stuffed French toast, Liege waffles and lobster bennies. Enjoy the patio seating along The LINQ Promenade as you dine.

GIADA at The Cromwell puts an Italian spin on brunch, which results in some unique brunch dishes. Spice up brunch with something like the salmon Benedict, lobster hash or pizza carbonara (yes, you read that right). Wash it down with some espresso and indulge in a build-your-own brownie.

Or indulge in a long-running, over-the-top Vegas tradition with Sterling Brunch at Bally’s Las Vegas. Here, the champagne flows freely and the jumbo-sized Gruyere popovers keep on coming as long as you want them – and you’ll keep wanting them. Sterling Brunch’s buffet line includes such sumptuous items as Alaskan king crab legs, lamb, lobster tails, prime rib and even oysters.

Party At the Pool… or Just Party

Next up, you might want to laze by the pool with a drink in your hand, or party in the pool… with a drink in your hand. Pools like GO Pool at Flamingo Las Vegas and Drai’s Beach Club at The Cromwell, produce high-energy affairs with DJs and performers like Drai’s residents Big Sean, Migos and TI.

If you want something a little bit exotic, party like you’re in Dubai at the Garden of the Gods Pool at Caesars Palace. They’re hosting Cove Beach parties this summer, bringing plenty of tunes, art, and shisha. The JMRCK theme Cove Beach features on Sundays adds some Caribbean island vibes to the proceedings.

Landlubbers (or, you know, people when it’s not pool season) who want to party would do well to check out O’Shea’s at The LINQ Promenade, which has a strong party vibe throughout the cozy, full-featured casino floor, with three bars, beer pong and a stage for live music. Another option might be Carnaval Court at Harrah’s Las Vegas, which lacks the casino but has live music and adds flair bartenders.

Wind it Up or Wind Down

After the pool or bar, if you’re looking to keep the energy level high with fun for the whole squad, check out  Re:Match and the new casino at the LINQ Hotel + Experience. Get a few laps in at the Mario Kart machines and try your luck with the interactive touchscreen bar top games that pit you against other players in fending off an alien invasion of Las Vegas or catching virtual Sticky Chicken chicken wings.

If you’re looking to unwind a bit and cool off, you can’t go wrong with a little bit of shopping. Whether your budget is “window shopping only” or “treat yo self,” Las Vegas’ shopping destinations are as much about the experience as they are about the merchandise. Stroll through the The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, home to more than 160 specialty stores, a 50,000 gallon aquarium and the Fall of Atlantis show. The trendy retailers, numerous afternoon show options and awesome dining scene make the Miracle Mile Shops a Vegas must-do, as well.

For the ultimate wind-down before dinner, some spa time can’t be beat. Refresh yourself with a massage and skin treatment at Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace, and unwind  It’ll be worth it to enter the work week renewed and revitalized.

End the weekend On a High Note With a Nice Dinner

Brunch was filling, but the day has been long and eventful, and your tummy is probably rumbling by now. It’s time for some grub!

To close out the weekend with something fun and over-the-top, try out Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen and Bar at The LINQ. With the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” host as its namesake, you know to expect some ridiculous (and ridiculously tasty) fare including huge burgers, wings, tacos and even some small bites to share. Split an order of Trash Can Nachos for the full Fieri experience.

Or, how about ending the night on a true high note – at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants in town. Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace features many of the celebrity chef’s trademark dishes and some delicious exclusive creations, like beef Wellington, the HK burger, Eggs in Purgatory and the delectable sticky toffee pudding.

And if just one dish isn’t enough, Bacchanal Buffet, also at Caesars Palace will be sure satisfy everyone in your group multiple times over. Featuring hundreds of daily offerings, many perfectly portioned on small plates so you can try more dishes, Bacchanal features everything from to watermelon mini salads and tri-tip steak to sushi and pho.

You think you know Harrah’s Las Vegas, but you have no idea…

This hotel’s obviously been around forever, but it’s not nearly the way you may remember it. For one, the casino got a fresh revamp and it’s looking, well, fresh. The casino looks sleek and sophisticated, all while keeping its inviting, welcoming appeal. The casino swapped its brassy gold for shiny silver, complementing the deep purples. It gives the hotel a completely new, contemporary feel. The pool, as well as the rooms, got a new look too.

Harrah’s, what’s your secret to being so fun? (Find out now.) Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

When you check in, there’s a lobby bar across the way. And not too far from that, you’ll come across one of the fanciest Starbucks locations you’ve ever seen in a hotel. It even has USB ports to ensure your electronics are fully charged. Grab a drink at one of two places (or heck, why not both?) and let the games begin.

Check out some other fun facts about this popular Las Vegas hotel:

Serenity at its finest. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

The Pool Is Free (and the Perfect Escape)

Sometimes we want a break from the Vegas craziness. That’s not to say we’re against pool concerts, wild contests or everything that shrieks Sin City, but having some calm R&R by the pool is just as enticing.

Welcome to the pool at Harrah’s Las Vegas, where you can sip on a cocktail and soak up the sun to your heart’s content. We love the pool loungers stationed at the shallow end of the pool, perfect if you want to work on your tan but have a little splash time too.

Not only does this pool offer free admission, it’s family-friendly and got some recent upgrades, such as new deck furniture. There are two pools here, the main one, as well as a smaller pool on the upper deck. Now that’s the pool you should sneak off to and escape from it all.

Donuts at Fulton Street Food Hall. We’ll take the whole tray, please.  Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Donuts Around The Clock At Fulton Street Food Hall

Come on, admit it  – we all crave sweets at 2 a.m., right? Well if you just so happen to be up, head to the Fulton Street Food Hall and get your delicious donut fix at whatever time of night. We’re torn between the chocolate poop emoji and vanilla unicorn donuts.

Bubble cones, bubble-bubble-bubble cones: It’s dessert time 24/7. Photo courtesy of Fulton Street Food Hall. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Harrah’s also has the Instagram-worthy homemade bubble cones (like a waffle cone, except the opposite with squares puffed out. Think outtie versus innie). What’s cool about these is you can stuff them with any of your favorite sweet treats. Aw man, that means we’ll have to order at least four of these!

But we’re not just talking donuts and bubble cones. You can also order savory eats like tacos, sushi, sandwiches and anything you have the late-night munchies for. So whether you’re wearing your club outfit from a few hours ago or your jammies from rolling out of bed, we won’t judge either way. You’ll probably see us wearing both.

Sing With The King

This may not be the best-kept secret since his show is well known, but it’s totally worth the mention. Pete Vallee, who plays Big Elvis at The Piano Bar, is a huge star. How huge? His act is so popular, that there are long lines of folks waiting to get in to see him. So tell us: Are you ready to bring your Elvis game? Well then, you better put on those blue suede shoes!

While you’re here, The Piano Bar also showcases live saxophone music, dueling pianos and karaoke.

For The Hardcore Elvis Fans 

Singing with Big Elvis is awesome, but you can’t stop there. If you’re a die-hard Elvis fan, you need to see Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel In Concert. This story-telling concert features more than 18 of his hit songs, so you’re sure to hear all your favorites.

This unique Vegas show will get you movin’ and you’ll also see clips of The King’s life from the show’s huge LED walls. And if you heard that this Vegas show is reminiscent of a Broadway play, that’s because it kind of is: Broadway veteran Jeff Calhoun is responsible for the extra fabulous stage.

Rooms With Style

These newly-renovated Vegas rooms are, in the words of Bruno Mars, drippin’ in finesse. Let’s praise the designers who did the renovations here — the rooms and suites are crazy stylish. The spacious Vice Presidential, Presidential and Penthouse suites look like they could be on MTV’s “Cribz.” We love the Penthouse Suite’s dining area and its lazy Susan tabletop piece. We can easily share all of our food (or let’s be real, all of our drinks). Plus, the clean lines and pops of color go with today’s trendy-yet-minimalist look.

The good news? The hotel will have all renovated rooms by the end of the year. So whatever tower or room you book, in a few months it’ll all be brand spankin’ new. Read more about these renovated Harrah’s Las Vegas rooms and suites here.

The Legendary Winnie And Buck Statue 

Rub for good luck…. or maybe not. In any case, you’re in luck if you take pictures with this iconic statue, the focal point of the hotel’s casino.

We don’t know too much about Winnie and Buck other than they’re a fun depiction of tourists. Legend has it this is a couple that Bill Harrah saw frequenting his dad’s casino. And legend also has it the couple won big and to this day, visits casinos to spread their luck to others. In the meantime, you can play the newly added Winnie and Buck slot machines, right next to the statues.

Hmm… so what happens if we dress up like them? And even bring our little pup with us to enjoy the hotel’s pet-friendly amenities? Is this enough to give us good luck? Only one way to find out!

Flippy the Bartender has mad skills. See them at Carnaval Court. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Add Some Flair To Your Stay At Carnaval Court 

A show with your drinks? Sure, why not? Head to Carnaval Court and watch Flippy the Bartender work his magic. He’s been doing this for years. Tim “Flippy” Morris makes it look so easy and you can just tell he has great time doing it. We can tell you all the tricks (or read more about Flippy here), but this is just something you gotta see in person.

Carnaval Court is also a hot spot due to its Strip-side location. It has a stage, so they’re constantly playing live music. It’s also a prime location for New Year’s Eve. If you feel like going on a food adventure, you’re only a short walk away from The LINQ Hotel + Experience, which offers late-night dining at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar.

Hear all those instantly recognizable Righteous Brothers hits at Harrah’s Las Vegas. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

More Shows Than You can Count 

Here you’ll not only find a wide variety of acts, but Harrah’s Las Vegas also has a total of nine shows on its property. Nine. That means you can take in Tape Face, John Caparulo’s Mad Cap Comedy, the aforementioned Elvis show, the kid-friendly, afternoon Mac King Comedy Show and celebrate women of all ages from X Country to Menopause the Musical. You can even see The Righteous Brothers and sing along to “Unchained Melody.” Just hearing this song takes us back to that famous pottery scene with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in 1990’s “Ghost.”

Whether you’re here for late night donuts, a relaxing pool day or ready to sing or laugh all night, this Vegas hotel doesn’t fall short on fun.

It’s July in Las Vegas, which means it’s a scorcher out there!

But when you’re not finding ways to beat the heat inside Las Vegas’ wonderful (and air conditioned) indoor attractions, you might want to watch the sky light up for Independence Day or dive right into some poolside fun.

That’s not all, though. Far from it, in fact. The only thing hotter than the summer heat is the red-hot lineup of entertainers and goings-on in Las Vegas this month.

We’re told Potted Potter is a hoot. Photo courtesy of Potted Potter.

Potted Potter Casts a Comedy Spell

Even if you don’t know the first thing about Harry Potter (it’s OK, there are dozens of us), Potted Potter at Bally’s Las Vegas overcomes that gap with catchy songs, hilarious jokes and compressing all seven books into a 70-minute production. Best of all – it’s a family-friendly afternoon show, so you can have plenty of time after for even more Vegas activities.

The Piña Colada Pancakes, made with the cantina’s original buttermilk pancakes, topped with house made pineapple syrup, fresh pineapple slices, a dollop of whipped cream and freshly toasted coconut, is priced at $13.95 and pairs remarkably well with its libation counterpart.

Hey, who said pancakes were just for breakfast? Or that coladas were just for nights?

Who says it has to be all about gambling when you hit up a Las Vegas casino?

The LINQ Hotel + Experience is a real game changer. From old-school favorites and today’s popular picks to hologram gaming and VR, this beats your weekend marathons on the couch.

Not only can you play to your heart’s content, but you can enjoy other fun, futuristic surprises like interactive LED walls and much more.

Not your average sportsbook. At The Book, you can relax surrounded by high tech games and plenty of TVs. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray for Caesars Entertainment.

THE BOOK

The LINQ’s transformation began last year with The Book, a modern take on the traditional race and sportsbook. Instead of rows of seating like a college lecture hall (Zzzzz), here you’ll find a relaxed lounge setting with a self-serve draft beer wall, food from Sticky Chicken food truck, beer pong, shuffleboard and more. If you’re renting a Fan Cave, split your screen between multiple games or take a break and hop on an Xbox or VR unit. Add in bottle service and mobile food delivery from Stick Chicken for the ultimate gameday fun. How many sportsbooks you know have these great features?

People watching? More like fish watching! Enjoy a digital aquarium with your drink at RE:MATCH. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

Re:Match Bar

The hotel also recently launched RE:MATCH bar, offering an interactive touch-screen bar top that surprises you with a variety of games from Sticky Chicken For President to aliens invading Las Vegas. Everyone at the bar can compete in the pop-up games and a lucky participant can win a free drink.

Re:Match and The Book are just the start of all the new features at The LINQ Casino. Here are just a few other reasons why we love the new and improved LINQ Hotel + Experience:

“It’s ah-me! Mar-i-o!” Race your friends at The LINQ’s newest bar, Re:MATCH. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

The Nostalgia Of Old-school Games

There are a select few (this blogger included) who miss the simplicity of old-school consoles. Take the 8-bit Nintendo, for instance. Anyone can master a game if it only has A and B and up / down / left / right buttons. Playing at the arcades was definitely another favorite pastime. It’s what we lived for every weekend and after school. At The LINQ, you can relive part of your childhood with favorite games like Mario Kart, Mortal Kombat and even the world’s largest Pac-Man. Sounds like you know where we’ll be most of the day.

The Excitement of the Latest And Greatest

Wait — weren’t we just talking about nostalgia? Yes, but you’ll get the best of both worlds at The LINQ.

Powered by Survios, you can choose from six different reality booths at VR @ The LINQ. You can play as short as 20 minutes or as long as an hour. These start at $25 for 15 minutes and you can play up to an hour for $85.

Games include Creed: Rise To Glory, Electornuats (where you get to play music for the biggest parties), Sprint Vector (an award-winning extreme sports game) and more. And for all the fans of “The Walking Dead,” expect to see the VR game here soon.

Even if all the booths are full, you can book one for a later time, grab a beer and come back. You’ll even get a text notification when your turn is coming up.

Brag to your friends back home by sharing your hologram gaming on social media. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

A first-of-its-kind on the Las Vegas Strip, you can test your skills with VNTANA’s hologram gaming. Located in the center of the casino, you can play one of three different games: Tic tac toe; Paper, Rock, Scissors or Pop ‘em. All the games capture a moment from your play, which you can share on social media.

Get your game on at the casino’s new eSports lounge. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

Calling all League of Legends fans: Who says you have to leave the lane swapping or zoning at home? Take a break from the Vegas excitement and get in the game at The LINQ’s eSports lounge, right next to the Catalyst Bar. Powered by Alienware, you can play LOL (or any of your other favorite multi-player PC games) on one of the 24 individual stations. You even get to kick back on a gaming chair. For a hardcore gamer, life can’t get any sweeter than this. You can play for $15 per hour.

Art that moves you as well as moves with you – that’s what we’re talking about. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

Other Fun Ways To Play 

So you’re not a gamer — no worries. There are other ways to tap into fun at The LINQ’s newly revamped casino area. For instance, when was the last time (if any time) art moved with you? 

If you’re walking into The LINQ from the Strip and notice that the LED art is following you… you’re right! You’ll even see people dancing to see the light follow their slick moves. (Speaking from personal experience, it does get addicting.)

Designed by artist and developer Refik Anodol, he combined art with technology creating a digital masterpiece you won’t catch back home. If anything gets you moving out of your comfort zone, it would be this LED entrance.

But speaking of dancing…

That’s my jam: Groove to all your favorites at The LINQ’s energetic live music show. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

Everybody Dance Now (At The Extreme Live Show) 

Take a shot of liquid courage if you need to (or simply absorb the Vegas excitement around you). It’s time to dance at the Extreme Live Show, The LINQ’s daily live music show. We’ll be the first to tell you this isn’t your average casino lounge act. Not only do you hear your favorite party songs live, but the music video of that song is playing right behind the band.

This blogger raced across the casino as soon as she heard Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” What’s cool is the singers are not shy to jump off the stage to interact with you. You better be ready to sing!

If you’re more of the dancing-in-your-head type, you can still enjoy live music at the electronic games and tables area. Play electronic craps, blackjack, baccarat and roulette while listening to a live DJ spin energetic tunes.

You may think you’re not a dancer, but we’re sure there’s one way that’ll get you moving: Wherever you’re playing slots in the casino, if you win big, one of the LED screens on the ceiling will make it rain with electronic dollar bills. And what song is more fitting to play throughout the casino than The O’Jay’s “For The Love Of Money?” (Money, money, money… mon-ey!)

Share All The Pics On The ‘Gram

Careful – he may bite! Get up close and personal with your favorite T-Rex. Photo courtesy of Patrick Gray.

So a dinosaur walks into a casino…

One of the other new elements we love about The LINQ: You’re strolling through the casino and BOOM – out of the blue see a giant T-Rex on display by the themed Jurassic Park slot machines. Just across the way, you’ll find Ghostbuster’s Slimer on display with its themed slots. There’s just so much to see and do here, you need to make time in your day to experience it all.

Linq Promenade

The LINQ Hotel + Experience got a major revamp in its casino, but The LINQ Promenade also has some new spots you need to check out:

  • Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club: Kimmel personally works with the club’s general manager to book talent for the room. This list of up-and-coming comedians will have you laughing ’til your face hurts. The dual-level 8,000-square-foot comedy venue also has a bar and lounge area, inspired by Kimmel’s own living room.
  • Maxie’s: If you’re all about cotton candy-topped pancakes, Oreo cookie waffles or a variety of sandwiches, then stop by this newly-opened American diner.
  • Nectar Bath Treats: These bath treats look so pretty, you’ll be tempted to eat them. While they aren’t edible, they are made with vegan-friendly ingredients and smell divine. Plus, who doesn’t want to smell like a Coconut Dream or Fruit Smoothie?

Catch even more fun at The LINQ and LINQ Promenade.

Peachy, and the rest of his Chilean flamingo flock celebrated with flamingo-friendly treats and a multi-tier faux flamingo-themed birthday cake that was set up for a few birthday pics. Peachy’s got to post to Instagram. Photo by Brian Steffy. Courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

In what’s probably the most adorable news you’ll read all day, Peachy the Flamingo, one of the charming residents at the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat, turns 21 years old this week.

With this being Las Vegas, that means Peachy can officially party with the rest of us!

We’ve put together a flockstar party itinerary for Peachy (or anyone celebrating their 21st birthday) to celebrate in style without leaving the comforts of his home at Flamingo Las Vegas.

Just call dibs on the bunk you like. Courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Check in to Your Swanky New Room

Start the occasion right by checking the flock into one of Flamingo’s new, group-friendly bunk bed accommodations.

The luxe Bunk Bed Suite packs 1,000 square feet of stylish goodness into its walls, with a 500-square-foot parlor area and a 430-square-foot bedroom with two queen beds and two full-size bunks. All in all, you can fit six in this room.

The parlor area includes oversize lounge furniture and a full kitchenette, so you have space for all sorts of games, snacks, and any other fun activities you have in mind.

The smaller Bunk Bed Room, at 515 square feet, sleeps six and is perfect for a group that just wants to crash for the night. It has a separate vanity area and living area, so you don’t have to get in everyone’s business while getting ready.

It’s almost too pretty to drink. Photo by Brian Steffy. Courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Wet Your Beak with a Drink at Bird Bar

Where else would you go for your first legal drink? Bird’s right in the name!

At this quirky, bird-cage-bedazzled bar, enjoy a Pink Flamingo cocktail any time of day. Featuring Barefoot Rosé and New Amsterdam peach vodka with a splash of soda, the $10 drink is topped with signature pink flamingo gummies and a special flamingo stir stick.

Looking to save some cash on you birthday celebration? Between 5 – 6 p.m. take advantage of the awesome 50-cent beer happy hour at Bird Bar.

If you and the flock are feeling a little competitive, try Bird Bar’s beer pong tables and flex those awesome pong skills.

Join the party at Flamingo’s Go Pool. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Perch at GO Pool Beach Club

What’s a better idea– and a more gracious one – than a beer pong victory lap? How about taking in some rays and some beats at GO Pool Dayclub?

Get a cabana by the pool for the flock, kick back with some tropical drinks and enjoy the hidden oasis vibes while listening to some of Vegas’ hottest DJs and performers. Some of GO Pool’s upcoming talent includes big names like Flo Rida (on June 23), so you know it’s a good time.

Sharing is caring. Sharing surf & turf is REALLY caring. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Dine at Center Cut Steakhouse

It’s time to celebrate the occasion with class – at a classic Vegas steakhouse.

Dimly lit with cool retro touches, Center Cut is a blast-from-the-past steakhouse that offers a look at the Sin City of old while serving premium cuts of beef free from hormones and steroids.

Since flamingos have a diet that includes shellfish – we suggest Peach split some Surf & Turf with his carnivore friends. Just a suggestion, that’s all!

Play Some Table Games

Hit me! Double down! Kenooooo!

Wait, that last one doesn’t go with a table game – not that you’d know, as a newly minted 21 year old, right?

For your first night out at 21, you’ve got to try your luck at some of Flamingo’s table games. We’re fans of craps, which looks complicated but is a fun, social game. You can always let someone among the other players take you under their wing and flamingle with the other players.

If that’s all too anxiety-inducing, you can always stick to something simple like blackjack. And hey, the number 21 is pretty significant in that game, too!

Is it hot in here? Photo by Thoma Corruzi.

Night Out at X Burlesque

What better way to celebrate this milestone of adulthood than with an adult show?

X Burlesque, set inside a cabaret-style theater, features acts like a giant champagne glass burlesque dance and classic strip tease just to add to the seductive air of it all. The 75-minute topless revue features gorgeous dancers, steamy fantasy scenes and a great variety of modern and classic music.

Stick around for the meet and greet for an autographed poster to commemorate the occasion. Because you know what’s hot? Freebies are hot.

If you’re still out late after the show, maybe hit up Bird Bar one more time for reverse happy hour from 2 a.m. – 10 a.m. for a night cap before heading to bed.

So, get out there, party responsibly, but have a ton of fun. Happy 21st birthday, Peachy!

Here’s a secret you might not know: It gets hot in Las Vegas in the summertime. And while nobody does pool season like Vegas, there are plenty of other ways to beat the heat in the desert. There is, perhaps, no better city in the world to find indoor entertainment than this one. How do you keep cool in Las Vegas? We present to you some of our favorite indoor Las Vegas fun and entertainment options. Go, play, and remember… hydrate!

First, for those who want to combine the hardcore attitude of miniature golf with the rebellious nature of rock’n’roll, there’s KISS by Monster Mini Golf where you can use your love gun, aka putter, to rock ’n’ hole-in-one all night and PARty every day.

Then head over to The Wall Restaurant & E-Sports Lounge where you can enjoy some tasty bites while destroying your virtual enemy in your e-game of choice. Finally, commemorate your dominance with some ink courtesy of Count’s Tattoo Company. That’s a gnarly day.

H&M, M-A-C Cosmetics and Urban Outfitters are just a few of the name brands guests will find as they stroll about the mall.

Let’s call it sports book swag at The Playing Field Lounge. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Sports fans, make sure to visit The Playing Field Lounge, a sports book taken to the next level. Guests can root on their favorite teams on the 55 flat screen televisions and get yard-long beers on draft while experiencing the swank surroundings. There are also two jumbo screens and a VIP area. And after the games are over, the party continues as the lounge stays open deep into the night.

The Party is here

There is plenty of indoor entertainment at The LINQ Hotel + Experience and The LINQ Promenade. Start at O’Sheas where it’s always a party and guests can gamble on traditional table games or gamble on their own party game skills and play beer pong. Part Irish pub, part casino and a party leprechaun, what more do you need?

Tattoo’d America is all about tattoos and America. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

With locations in Arizona, San Francisco and Las Vegas, Club Tattoo is always a trendy choice for your tattoo, body piercing and jewelry desires. After you get your new ink, head over to Tattoo’d America, an interactive attraction that celebrates all things body art. There are 21 separate experiences that include games, installations and of course, backgrounds for selfies. Body art, body painting and tattoos are all given their due here.

The Book has more beer then your house and Xboxes too Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Get yourself – and a bunch of sports-loving buddies – a fan cave at The Book. Each of the 12 spaces has its own 98-inch TV, two 49-inch TVs, an Xbox, game consoles and VR. There’s also bottle service plus food from Sticky Chicken that will be delivered right to you, so you don’t have to miss a minute of your favorite game.

Stop by VR Adventures and get transported into 3-D virtual worlds that are so real, you’ll wonder if you are in a simulation. Then again, is life a simulation? Maybe, but if it is, we at least found ways to keep cool and have fun while the sun beats down during the summer months.

Be sure to visit this post frequently, as it will be updated with new info as it becomes available.

Don’t miss the Independence Day fireworks at Caesars Palace. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Enjoy Spectacular Fireworks

The best spot for fireworks year after year, Caesars Palace will be firing off its annual spectacle Thursday, July 4 from the pool area at 9:15 p.m. If you want the best point to view the show, you’ll want to be outside the hotel by the fountains or across the street at The LINQ Hotel + Experience. Plan for the show to last about 15 minutes.
