Can You Party Like What Happens in Vegas?

I was wondering the other day whether it was possible to party like “What Happens in Vegas” – a fun movie featuring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher – I mean – is any of that wild stuff they did like the awesome luxury suite and VIP treatment possible for normal tourists visiting Las Vegas? I love going there and am looking forward to my next trip but I’m hoping to live the high life a little higher next time around. Here are some thoughts on the kinds of stuff they did in the movie and how average people might accomplish the same thing in the real world.

Getting a Luxury Suite in Las Vegas

The first thing Cameron and Ashton do on their trip is check in to their luxury room – where they ultimately meet being double booked into the same suite. They parlay the hotel’s error into a luxury suite at no extra cost so they end up with an awesome luxury suite. Is that something normal people can do?

Well while we can’t guarantee that your hotel will screw up royally like they did for the movie stars we can find ways to book luxury party suites in Las Vegas without breaking the bank. Better still once you have secured your luxury suite you have some leverage to start squeezing resort staff for perks and other VIP treatment that the stars of the movie got.

Cruising Las Vegas Boulevard in a Limo

This has got to be the ultimate partier’s goal, right? I mean we’re talking getting down in a stretch limo, popping the moon-roof open and being seen whooping it up like a complete fool. Can it be done? Well here’s where your resort service really needs to kick in. What kind of schmoozing can you do with your concierge to get some VIP passes? Are you willing to do a little time in the games room? Can you get them to believe you just got married (we’ll cover that later) or are there on a special anniversary or other occasion? The better sales job you do the more likelihood you can swing a quick drive down the boulevard. I mean they have the limos (you know they do) around – no reason not to sweet talk them into a cruise downtown on their way to pick someone up or after dropping someone off. It can’t hurt to ask so what do you have to lose, right?

Table Slide in the Nightclub

Ok, this one is probably the easiest. Are you going to be able to find a nightclub where you can party like a wild animal and do a victory slide a la your favorite soccer player right off the end of the bar? Probably, if you look hard enough and promise not to sue the nightclub. Seriously though, doing bar-slides probably isn’t the best idea, even though it looks awfully fun and could be very tempting. You wouldn’t want the ladies rugby player to follow you off the end of the bar though, right? Stick to a little safer fun, party like a wild child on the dance floor. Skip the bar slide – seriously.

Getting Hitched in the Marraige Capital of the World

Viewers familiar with the movie know that Ashton and Cameron wake up the next morning after their night of debauchery legally hitched. Now the rules are a little different in Las Vegas than depicted in the movie but if you’re determined to get married to someone, there are plenty of places in town to do it. Heck, you can even do it in a drive through! My advice would be to do at least a little planning and find a nice chapel (out of the many you have to choose from) that suits you and your beloved’s tastes. Do try to do it sober though, you don’t want to wake up next to someone you hardly know after the party like in “What Happens in Vegas”.
