Some adventures are better without a tour guide to lead the way, like climbing a mountain to find yourself, or interviewing for a job as a tour guide. Other times, it's best to listen to the experts' advice. Specializing in bachelor and bachelorette parties, Your Las Vegas Guide takes a curated approach to the nightlife in the City of Sin, offering nightly club crawls through some of the city's classiest, flashiest establishments. Guests journey from hotspot to hotspot in the lap of luxury—a limousine or party bus equipped with flat-screen TVs, custom stereo systems, fiber-optic and strobe lighting, and wet bars stocked with beer, wine, and spirits. Neither line nor cover charge interrupts the fun, whether attendees opt for the four-club platinum package or the three-club gold package. Guests need only bring three things: a valid ID, appropriate business or dress-casual attire, and a big old pack of party gum.
Music swells in Le Provençal, ricocheting off the murals of the serene French countryside as waiters dressed in traditional peasant attire serenade diners with French and Italian numbers throughout the night. Nestled in the Paris Hotel and Casino, the restaurant introduces diners to the French countryside through steamed mussels, brick-oven flatbreads topped with smoked bacon or capers, and hearty parmesan-crusted chicken. It also prepares its house specialty, the bouillabaisse, and serves it tableside out of a vast cast-iron pot that bubbles with saffron-tomato broth and seafood, like a witch’s caldron but without the accidentally included pointy hat.
At PFC CrossFit, there are no shortcuts or gimmicks, and goals are reached the old-fashioned way: through hard work. Every session poses a set of different challenges built around a pre-determined workout. One day, exercisers might incorporate box jumps and pull-ups, and the next, they might have to hit the deck while battling through rounds of burpees. No matter the workout, PFC’s certified trainers lead with expertise and intensity. Small class sizes make for a more personalized experience, allowing those trainers to work one-on-one and quiz exercisers with multiplication tables when they are most tired.
Mommy & Me West brings together local moms so they can socialize while their little ones play and interact with their peers, learning to share and make friends. The club coordinates daily activities such as arts and crafts and music sessions, as well as play groups, parties, and Mom’s Night Out events. These entertaining and educational experiences contribute to Mommy & Me West’s goal of facilitating child development from birth to kindergarten and fostering relationships between the community's parents. As a nonprofit organization, the group is run by volunteers and membership fees go toward funding events.
Longtime fitness fanatic Mike Todd takes a realistic approach to physical training and nutrition. With 10 years of personal-training experience and advanced degrees in sports nutrition under his belt, Mike designs exercise programs that constantly push his clients, but in a manner that is safe and sensible. One of those programs, the Raw Body Boot Camp, tests strength, agility, and speed. A notable contrast to standard boot camps, Mike's boot camps rely almost solely on body weight movements, which enable exercisers to gauge more accurately when they've reached their limit.
