I love gambling (only Poker) so I usually get warmed up over at the Excalibur, although the last time I was there, they only had digital tables left. Anyhow, The Mirage has a nice set of tables with some extra Jackpots. If you want the real Vegas Poker thing, go head down to Old Town Vegas and stop by the Horse Shoe. You'll most likely see some pros there as well, so if you are a Poker fan, you can just do some sight seeing as well. For great food, I recommend, Seafood Buffet at the Rio, Breakfast at the Bellagio or Paris. Main Street Station has a very cheap Buffet (in old town Las Vegas), but it's actually quite good. For up scale I liked Bradley Odgen's Restaurant. At night head out to the Palms and I like the Hard Rock, which has a really nice night club. Finally, if you want to see some really nice buildings/hotels, you should just walk down the Strip. Stop at Bellagio and watch the awesome Water Concert over the lake. Walk inside Caesar's Mall and catch a Gondola inside the Venetian, you'll love it.
