Las Vegas Travel Guide
It's no coincidence that, at times, Think Like A Man Too feels like a 105-minute commercial for Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
As part of a unique deal between Caesars and Screen Gems, the sequel's script was specifically written to include 17 locations at the hotel and casino. Among the most prominently featured are the swanky Constantine villa, the Forum Shops, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, the Venus Pool Club, Nobu Restaurant and Planet Hollywood.

A long layover at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport is a common occurrence, but far less common is making a mini-film out of it. Traveler Richard Dunn recently found himself passing a night at LAS, and decided to have a little fun with his iPhone, shooting a lip-synced version of Celine Dion's "All By Myself."
The 5-minute, 20-second video is something of a de facto ode to Las Vegas, in that it features Celine Dion, McCarran Airport, and the thrill of entertainment in Sin City. Of course "anything," in this case, involves turning an average passenger into a music video superstar, which is what is happening on the internet as the video has been trending in popularity since yesterday.
Alas, frolicking in a nearly empty airport during the late hours isn't an original idea; a duo made a brief video (below) inside Dallas-Ft Worth Airport during a similarly boring stretch of pre-flight waiting.

You might just be smiling on your next trip out of Las Vegas, and it will have nothing to do with all the money you won — ‘cause we all know that’s unlikely. Some of the city's most well known celebrities, entertainers, and performers have teamed up to make a few cutesy little videos, as it’s all in the spirit of getting travelers through airport security quickly and efficiently.
Folks like Louie Armstrong, Carrot Top, and the Blue Man Group are all some of the featured acts, as airport officials hope that this kind of “Only in Vegas” approach will speed things up while at the same time having a little bit of fun.
Check out the video above, have yourself a chuckle, and remember not to make jokes when in the line to meet and greet the TSA—it’s not funny.
Fans of the classic 1993 film A Bronx Tale can see the movie brought to life on stage in by its writer and star, Chazz Palminteri, for one night only in Las Vegas next month.
In this one man show, Palminteri will tell the story of Calogero Anello, a young boy from a working class family who gets involved in the world of organized crime.

Delta is doing something new when it comes to how they handle the whole baggage carrousel thing, as they want to ensure that you go home with the same bag that you brought to the airport.
We guess there must be a baggage theft problem—or other issue—over in Las Vegas, as that’s where Delta is in the middle of a two-month pilot program aimed at cracking down on stolen baggage.
As Last Vegas hits theaters this weekend, moviegoers will get a look at the best of the old and new in Las Vegas.
The story follows Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline as four old friends who reunite in Las Vegas for a bachelor party. And, since the guys are both moving forward and reminiscing about past trips to the Vegas strip, the movie is set at two very different casinos - Aria, representing the new and Binion's, representing the old.
Renting a motorcycle isn’t exactly a new concept, as Harley-Davidson and other dealerships have been renting out bikes for quite some time—assuming you know how to ride one. However, this week things are a little different, as one national rental car company is getting in on the motorcycle renting business.
Enterprise—known for their ability to pick you up—is breaking the mold and will be offering up more than just compact and economy cars. In case you couldn’t figure it out on your own based off our hints, they’re now renting out motorcycles as well.
Of course the perfect place to test things out is Las Vegas, so now you can enjoy all things motorcycle while making your way down the Strip—or riding out to the Hoover Dam. For now this is their only spot renting out two-wheeled vehicles, as they’re doing it from the existing Enterprise location at 4517 W Flamingo Road—kind of near the Palms.
The Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball returns to Las Vegas on October 26 with plenty of adult-only tricks and treats.

Self-service baggage tagging is far from breaking newswe told you about Alaskan Airlines leading the charge last yearbut the TSA has just granted the privilege to its first international carrier, British Airways.
The airline has chosen Las Vegas-McCarren International Airport (of all places) as "the first airport in the US to conduct its trial." Self tagging your bags is a breeze, but we do find a bit of humor in Sin City being selected as the pilot location. We guess BA figures that if the blurry-eyed tourists leaving Las Vegas can figure out the procedure, the rest of the nation shouldn't have much a problem.

The protagonist of the new Vegas-set movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone may be a fictional character, but he got plenty of help from the real deal for the film.
Many scenes in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the new Steve Carrell/Jim Carrey movie about an up and coming street magician who makes the more established acts look stale, were filmed on the Las Vegas Strip, including the now famous suspended, see-through box stunt that was filmed above Las Vegas Boulevard outside of Bally’s last year.
