Ever since 'Pawn Stars' (History, Mondays at 10/9c) blew up into one of cable TV's most popular programs, Gold & Silver Pawn has turned into a major Las Vegas tourist destination. But what else is worth doing in Vegas when you're tapped out at the craps table? We asked breakout Pawn Star Austin "Chumlee" Russell for some advice on where to eat, shop and hang out in his hometown.

Any time somebody stops by the pawn shop hawking a pair of high-end sneakers, the gang know to call on Chumlee, the store's resident expert ("I buy a lot of shoes," he says. "I have close to 300 pairs"). So where does he go to score new kicks? Undefeated, the Los Angeles sneaker store with a local branch near the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. "It's a little boutique store," he says. "They have their own clothing brand, and they sell shoes, limited stuff. It's not like your everyday run of the mill shoe store. It's just really cool. They have Jordans and stuff. I just bought my Phoenix Sun foamposites there. People were going crazy for them." [Undefeated, 4480 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, 702-732-0019].
