I'll be visiting Vegas next weekend for the first time since I moved from there 10 years ago. Any recommendations for some good geek fun?

I'll be hitting Planet Hollywood and the Hard Rock, as well as the usual attractions on the strip. I know that the Star Trek Experience is closed, but is there anything new along those lines?

As far as??? For Star Wars geek stuff...well nothing has changed, absolutely nothing. Casinos, well there is the new one from MGM, called City Center. I haven't been there, but its HUGE. But its all the same. Have fun on your trip.

Thanks. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything cool off the strip. The Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino is new since I was there last. I'm not going to go looking for vintage toy shops or anything. I know Vegas has always been pretty dry for that sort of thing.

Don't know if there's anybody I remember (or that remembers me) on this forum, but I tried to start up a local SW collector's group back in '98 and helped organize the big Ep. 1 premiere party at FAO Schwarz. Do they still have the Star Wars section there?

I'm not even sure FAO is still there. If it is, the last time I was there, all the Star Wars stuff was gone.

FAO closed again for the last time a few weeks ago and the horse will be heading out 2 pasture soon.

Not going to miss much there. The last time I was there, I was shocked at what it became, it was like a giant stuffed animal emporium. Very few "fun" toys left. It's sad because I remember when TPM came out and that's where I went to get the first round of toys and that place was amazing.
