How to pack for a weekend inFor years, party-goers and bachelor and bachelorette parties alike have been going to Vegas to get some sun and lose their inhibitions.

Vegas isn’t my cup of an overpriced drink, but I’ve been there so I know a thing or two about what you need to have a successful time in Sin City.

Because I want to share my knowledge with you, I’ve made a list of the top 10 things you need when packing for a weekend on The Strip.

Packing Guide for Vegas

1. Wallet stuffed with obscene amounts of money. A cheeseburger will run you $25.

2. A flask to fill with liquor to take to the pool. It will be confiscated immediately.

3. Deodorant. You’re in the desert in July. Pack two.

4. Body spray to cover up the odor when your deodorant stops working.

5. Ear plugs. If you actually want to sleep you’ll need these to drown out the parties of your neighbors at 3 a.m.

6. Antacids. You’re not 21 anymore and late night nachos with extra jalapeños and a case of beer does a number on your aging stomach.

7. Sunglasses. You’ll need these to look at all the people making idiots of themselves at the pool, but don’t want to make it obvious you’re staring.

8. Dollar bills. Everyone gets tipped in this town. Everyone.

9. Walking shoes. You may think that restaurant across the street is close, but the city doesn’t trust drunk people to walk on the strip, so you will have to walk the three blocks down to the only place were the sidewalk goes over the street to cross to the other side.

10. Kleenex. You will need this to wipe your tears when you lose at whatever game you decide to play. The house always wins.
