Vegas - Our Way (Part 2)

We are always looking for fun things to do in Vegas off the strip. In February I had a baby shower with some friends in Vegas and my best friend, M, flew in from Atlanta. Jeff and I decided this was the perfect opportunity to knock a few things of the Vegas to do list.

This place is a bit on the sketchy side, but boy is it fun. They have every kind of pinball game you can imagine - including a two person challenge game. All you will need are some quarters and an hour or so and you can play any of the games. (Games vary in cost and they do have change machines there if you don't have enough quarters on you.) It is perfectly suitable for any kid of pinball age - although you will want to keep an eye on them since the place attracts an eccentric crowd.

Right now the "museum' is an empty lot filled with the most impressive collection of old Vegas neon. The museum is scheduled to be open later this year - until then you need to call and schedule your tour ahead of time, but you won't
be disappointed by the collection they have.

When you are ready for dinner head to Battista's Hole in the Wall. It's right on the strip and parking can be a problem. (Walk or cab it if possible - otherwise just park in the deck at Harrah's) This little Italian joint has a fixed price menu but it is worth it - it includes all the house wine you can drink. Your table will be visited by an accordion playing 90-something who will make your night. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The end of dinner drink is divine - they call it a cappuccino, but it tastes more like hot chocolate - or they have ice cream for the little ones.
