Attend Def Con 31

Def Con has long been a tradition in Las Vegas and this year, the trade show for computer hackers (and those trying to counteract them) runs August 10-13 in Las Vegas. The conference is at the Caesars Forum with additional events at The LINQ, Flamingo and Harrah's

Fremont Street Experience: Step away from the pool or AC for a few hours with an evening adventure in the not-so-old Downtown. The Fremont Street Experience has a Viva Vision light show, free concerts and the Slotzilla zip line.
Fire off Some Firearms: Las Vegas is known for its gun ranges and if the August heat has you frustrated, blow off some steam during target practice. Battlefield Vegas has indoor and outdoor experiences, ranging from entry-level gun classes for beginners to crushing a car with a tank. The choice is yours.
Free Drinks in Las Vegas: Las Vegas is not the cheapest place to grab a drink. Fortunately, we list semi-secret promotions and weekly open bars. These events are often added with little notice. Review the special offers on our nightclub page when you log in with Facebook.
