Before I go into my rant - which newbies may see as shallow, opinionated, narrow-minded, and snobbish, and I'm good with that - I just want to make a couple of things perfectly clear.
Okay, since driving wasn't involved, it was actually wine drinking. Staggering home is not illegal. At least as far as I know.
However, don’t be shy to venture away from the Strip and try some local wine bars and restaurants, as they can often be a pleasant surprise and much better for Vegas on a budget.
