Woo hoo, party time! Or something...

Posted on

1. Expectation: You're going to stay up ALL NIGHT and party hard!

Reality: You fall asleep in your hotel room at 7 p.m. and sleep through till the next morning.

2. Expectation: You're gonna get rich! Rich, I say!

Reality: After a $40 win on the penny slots, you decide to quit while you're ahead.

3. Expectation: You'll get a sweet tan at the hotel pool every afternoon.

Reality: The water is ice cold, the kids won’t stop screaming and you end up with third-degree burns.

4. Expectation: Elvis is alive and well in very convincing incarnations.

Reality: Midget "Elvis."

5. Expectation: You'll stroll down The Strip in a day.

Reality: The Strip is so long, everything is so far away and your feet really, really hurt.

6. Expectation: You’ll gorge on the numerous buffets the city is famous for.

8. Expectation: You’ll take a nice little day trip to the Grand Canyon and be back on the Strip in time for dinner.

Reality: It’s five hours to the South Rim. FIVE HOURS. EACH WAY. You leave at 6 a.m. and don't get back until nearly midnight.

9. Expectation: You’ll get drunk as hell on the free-flowing booze, which you can even drink on the street!

Reality: You get tired of lugging around your 30-ounce Eiffel Tower replica full of strawberry margarita and dump it out in the bathroom sink of Bally’s.

10. Expectation: You'll come back with some crazy stories to tell.

Reality: Of course you've got them, but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?
