A single weekend – or a few days mid-week if you're on a budget – in Las Vegas is enough time to get into financial trouble or the swing of things in America's capital of "Why not"? We recommend the latter because the payout (mostly stories you can tell your friends back home) is guaranteed.
Here are some of the rewarding ways (think great golf, great cigars, and driving really, really fast) a non-gambling man can spend time in Sin City – and come away with tales of not-so-gamey fun worth telling.
Smoke a serious cigar.
There are smoking sections and then there is Casa Fuente, a lounge perpetually draped in rich clouds of cigar smoke. Tucked in a corner of the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Casa Fuente is an unexpectedly intimate haven removed from the retail rush. "It's about more than smoking the cigar," says manager Mac O'Donnell, whose visitors frequently include sports and entertainment stars. O'Donnell or his staff will suggest a cigar to match your tastes, then cut and "toast" the end to bring out the best flavor from start to finish. They even recommend the ideal libation to pair with your particular stogie.
