Hi - I am a lawyer in Vegas for a convention at Mandalay Bay this weekend, and last year ate at burger bar every night because I am not going to pay $100 for dinner to eat by myself in a mall.
Tonight - I ate at Burger Bar. It was $40 and it was fine. I did not feel ripped off. $13 for internet access in my $265 room - I feel ripped off. $27 for a flask of Johnny Walker in the lobby store feels like a rip car.
The Chinese places on Spring Mountain Road sound great, but I am worried that the $30-40 roundtrip in cab fare might be too much, though I might just do it anyway.
Is there anything accessible for a non-trashy, non-rich tourist.
I want excellent food, at non-insane prices, or good food at non-expensive prices. (I live in Hollywood and sometimes eat at AOC, Lucques, Angelini Osteria, Mozza, etc. - but for a special meal, not dinner on a work trip.) Any tips would be very appreciated for dinner Sept 7 or 8.
