Impending Vegas Trip

I'll be in Vegas in a couple weeks and wanted to hit some of the strip clubs around the Strip, but -- damn -- they all seem just crazy expensive now. And from what I've seen in the reviews, the ones not on the Strip (except for probably Chicas) sound, well, sad dancer-wise. Any suggestions for a lone, non-drinking geek on foot?

    Almost forgot: And who doesn't want to spend a two-week paycheck on one dance?

    yesterday I spent 15.50 on a pitcher of beer at chica's. (maybe I need to specify the cheap beer) and the tequila shots for the girls are now 12 bucks.

    I'm staying out of the other places with their ridiculous prices...

    Vegas isn't worth it to me. Highest covers. High VIP prices. Air dances. Possible fraudulent charges on your card. It's crazy how this is standard operating procedure even in some Vegas night clubs. I know you said you don't drink, but do you smoke? Because I'd take a Vegas dispensary over a Vegas club any day.

    Been over a year since I was last in Vegas. Chicas Bonitas was my fav, but I had to deal with some bum interaction in the parking lot. Sophia's was second best. Followed by Crazy Horse 3 day shift. The best dances were with a black Cuban, a Gloria Estefan type Cuban, and a black American dancer.

    Stick with Chicas. If you decide to indulge in the others, look into taking club-provided limo to avoid the cover. Perhaps someone can explain the logic behind clubs providing "free" (well, not really free, as it's appropriate to tip the driver) admission for limo use, when the limo operation costs the club money. Why would the club charge a $60 cover charge as penalty for not taking limo? Are the clubs getting kickbacks from taxi companies that return you to hotel?

    @PAWG, nah, I don't smoke and I don't toke.

    The big clubs don’t typically offer the limo/free cover deal anymore, and especially not for a single rider. The reason they do it is because the clubs pay the cab and ride share drivers $50-60 a head for customers they bring to the clubs. They pay the bounty regardless of whether the driver encouraged the customer to the club or the customer told the driver to which club to take them.

    The reason they USED TO do it… I don’t know exactly why they stopped waiving the cover and offering the free limo rides. I can guess that since it’s a post covid change that it’s due to a combination of labor shortage and Vegas increasing fees on everything, including strip club fees.

    Oh Vegas, been more times than I'd care to admit but it's rapidly changing. Around 2010 casinos started popping up in a state near you, online gambling and sports betting is now legal in most states, and then COVID wiped a year off the books for Vegas. I really thought it was done. What do they do? Finally finish and start more huge casino projects. They have the most cutting edge concert venue in North America if not the entire world. They just became the #1 destination for any NHL, WNBA and NFL fan that wants to go watch their favorite team on the road, AND they've charged at least double for everything since the doors reopened from COVID and people are STILL lining up to give them their money.
