From our own Vegas connoisseur, industry expert Carey Tosello of eBowl.biz
Going to Bowl Expo? (If not, you should!) The educational seminars help you stay on top of your game, the exhibits show you what is new in the industry, and the networking opportunities with other operators are priceless!
Of course, there are other distractions in Sin City, and here are the ones that I highly recommend if you are planning to spend some extra time in the desert. Note that Vegas is extremely busy with all the pent-up travel demands, so advance reservations are a must!
Cirque du Soleil is back live again, and our favorite is KA! Playing at MGM Grand: https://youtu.be/Pmqz_gdiY8o
Aerosmith! Yes, the boys are still alive and kicking with two shows at Park MGM during Bowl Expo week: https://parkmgm.mgmresorts.com/en/entertainment/dolby-live.html
And if heavy rock is not your scene, Justin Bieber will be at T-Mobile Arena on June 28th: https://www.axs.com/events/388455/justin-bieber-tickets?skin=tmobile
If you are a history buff, the Mob Museum downtown is a must: https://themobmuseum.org/
Just Win Baby! Sorry, but the Raiders season will not have started yet. You can take a tour of this amazing stadium with views of the Strip, and a field that rolls out into the sunshine. They actually have a house band that plays live during games! Tour info here: https://www.allegiantstadium.com/tours
For a unique dining experience, check out the Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio. Fine dining, cocktails, and entertainment that is a throwback to the golden days of Vegas: https://bellagio.mgmresorts.com/en/restaurants/the-mayfair-supperclub.html
Our new favorite restaurant in Vegas is Amalfi by Bobby Flay at Caesars Palace. Featuring Italian coastal cuisine, with a fish monger who will guide you thru selecting your catch for the chef to prepare. If you love seafood, this is the place: https://www.caesars.com/caesars-palace/restaurants/amalfi
Looking for a steak? Vegas is full of great steakhouses, but if you haven’t tried Bavette’s at Park MGM, you are missing out. A classic Chicago style steakhouse with a hidden speakeasy in the back: https://parkmgm.mgmresorts.com/en/restaurants/bavettes.html?icid=GMB_Restaurants_Bavettes
Craving a burger? Gordon Ramsay Burger at Planet Hollywood has the best burgers on the Strip. The only place you will get a fresh burger grilled over hardwood for a unique flavor: https://www.caesars.com/planet-hollywood/restaurants/ramsay
