13 Tips to Surviving Vegas

13 Tips to Surviving Vegas

Just like any 20 something, I wanted to venture to the shit show also known as Vegas. So the girls and I decided to go and my my were we completely and utterly ill-prepared. Yeah we've partied and bullshitted in these candy-coated streets of Chicago, but we were not prepared for the Devil’s playground. Here are a few tips I’ve come to learn in order to survive and not have your dead body airlifted home:

  1. There's no point in bringing a suitcase- I packed three outfits per day (Friday-Sunday), including 4 swimsuits. I only wore 3/4 swimsuits, a club fit and an outfit for the flight there and home

  2. Drink PLENTY of water- And by plenty, I mean drink your weight in it

  3. Drink PLENTY of alcohol- You can't be in Vegas and not indulge in spirits. BUT drink water between your alcohol infused drinks

  4. Buy pregame liquor- Your coin purse will thank you

  5. EAT!!!- Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, whatever but eat. You need something in your stomach to soak up all the poison you will pollute your body with

  6. Stick with your buddies- It's sups easy to stray away from your group. Not very smart ESP if you been drinking

  7. If you’re going to gamble, don’t empty out your checking and savings account. Have a set limit you’re willing to spend and stick to it

  8. Find the plug- Believe me when I say, you will come across someone that is well connected. They will be your best friend from the duration of your stay

  9. The freaks come out at night..and during the day- And by freaks I mean creepy men. Listen to your gut and you will be able to spot them out. I don't think I've come across so many creepy men in one area but oh girl, they are lurking and waiting at every corner; don't fall victim

  10. Accept the fact that you will get NO sleep

  11. Pace yourself

  12. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen- That tan you're dying to have is not worth turning into a burnt cookie over

  13. Have a bomb ass time- You deserve it
