Aria's gym is packed at 6 a.m., but the spa is not. Try the Japanese ganbanyoku heated stone beds — super Zen and very meditative. Worth the $30 day fee.
Have snakeskin pedicure at Vdara Spa & Salon. It's a gel pedi topped with layer of naturally shed snakeskin. It takes two hours, and lasts a month or longer. Am surprised at how cool it looks. ($200).
Take free poker class at Mandalay Bay (offered Monday-Thursday, 2 p.m.). Find out that "splashing" has nothing to do with water and a "brush" has nothing to do with hair.
Late lunch at Burger Bar where you can completely customize your burger from protein to bun to garnish. Discover the secret star here is the truffled potato chips.
Head to H&M to see if any Marni is left. It's 3 p.m., so I'm not hopeful: In NYC it sold out within an hour. But guess what? It's all STILL THERE! Okay, not all. Accessories are gone, no jewelry, no sunglasses. Who cares? I get two tops, a T-shirt, a pair of shoes, and an awesome men's tote. Jackpot! I officially fall in love with Vegas.
Have dinner at Bar Masa. Discover amazingly delicious hamachi kama (collar fish), thanks to sommelier T.J. Buraszeski, Jr., who also poured the perfect champagne to go with it.
