Drinking & Gambling in the US.

27 Apr 2008 Teeg said

Hey everyone!<BR><BR> I am going on the Wild Western tour in June and was wondering if anyone could please give me some advice on bars and casinos.. <BR> <BR> The problem is, I am only 20 so I can't buy alcohol while I am over there. Although I don't need alcohol to have a good time, I do like a drink or two... Or ten :P.. Does anyone know any good bars in Vegas, LA, San diego, San fran that DON'T check ID? Are they very strict at bars in the US? Also, I heard they sometimes let you into the bar but you can't buy alcohol.. Is this true? How do other people my age get around the rules!? <BR> <BR> The OTHER problem is I don't know the legal gambling age in the US... Is it 21 also? Will I be stuck in my hotel room most nights in Vegas? If anyone has any good tips on what to do while everyone else is out drinking I'd really like to hear them! I had originally planned to take a tour that was less about partying (if that is possible) because of the age laws but it was all booked out <img src="" alt="Frowner" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::(-->. Still, better some form of a tour than no tour!<BR><BR>Any advice at all would be great, so thanks in advance <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)--><BR><BR>Tegan
