Walking Gourmet Resized.png

The Walking Gourmet "Culinary Mystery Tours" - This concept is intriguing to us. The tour is a food tasting experience taking place in either Mandalay Bay or The Palazzo/Venetian. You will visit 4-5 restaurants per tour, with 2-4 tastings of incredible food (appetizers, entrees, desserts, etc.) and cocktails per stop, lasting 3-3.5 hours in the afternoon.  The tours are all-inclusive (except for any tip you would like to give your professional tour guide). Tours are available at Mandalay Bay each Monday & Thursday (2:00 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.) and The Palazzo/Venetian available on Friday & Saturday (2:00 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.). Tours pricing is from $149.95 per person (remember-it's 100% inclusive-not a bad price).

Coupla "Date Night" - This was another interesting idea. A "Date Night" for groups of couples. Nothing to plan, just show up. Many of their events get you away from the usual, and the prices are very inexpensive ($15 - $40 per couple on the events we were looking at). Nothing dicey, just good fun. Take a look and see if anything is planned during your trip.

Las Vegas Beer Tours - If you like microbrews, this is your kind of tour. The Brewzki Bus will pick you up either downtown or center-Strip and take you to three of Las Vegas's finest microbreweries and brewpubs. You will sample at least 5 beers of various styles at each location and the tour guide will explain their characteristics as you sample.
