When keeping it real goes wrong — get to Vegas.

A real life can be routine, spiritless and monotonous. A Vegas life is none of those things. A real life has bad days. With all these things to do in Las Vegas, a Vegas life means better days ahead. A real life brings the boring. Vegas brings the excitement, the melodrama and the frenzy of elevating your life.

In Vegas you can ditch the lifeless to become one with the living and… Live. It. Up.

YOur Pool Party at Home vs. a Pool Party in Vegas

“Bottom’s up!” should be bellowed with buddies before downing a bevy of bountiful cocktails. It should not describe your state of undress as you try to fit your big butt in a kiddie pool. When you’ve tired of wading in the most basic of lives, swim up to The Cromwell rooftop where Drais BeachClub gives you several adult pools (and adult beverages) to choose from.

shopping at home vs. shopping in vegas

Toilet paper? Check. Tampons? Check. Tofu? Check. That’s the kind of checklist you have when you shop at home. Visit the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and you’ll be checking off the names Balenciaga, Burberry and Brooks Brothers. More than 160 specialty shops and restaurants make up this retail attraction that rivals the fashionable street of Via Condotti in Rome. You’ll find the hottest luxury brands — Louis Vuitton, Versace, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Gucci and other designer labels. The country’s only Fendi shoe salon is also housed here. Meanwhile, your house is home to moldy bread. You should probably add a loaf to your real-life shopping list.

your birthday at home vs. Your birthday in Vegas

You’re turning 21 for the first time. Well, aren’t you special? Nah, nope, nyet. Not even a little bit. Some 30, 40, 50 and 60-year-olds have been turning 21 for years. And they’re smart enough to know not to do it at home. Home is where the start of a great vacation is and that’s it. Pack your bags, leave the cake and candles there and get to Vegas to light up your life like no other city can. OMNIA Nightclub’s 75,000-square-foot club at Caesars Palace is just the beginning.

seeing a show at Home vs. seeing a show in Vegas

Are you not entertained!? Then get to Vegas. Here, it’s never lonely at the top — or the bottom — of a theater because we keep the house packed. You can catch headliners Celine Dion, Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld and others at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Or you can go for pure pop when you behold a little Britney Spears, a lot of Jennifer Lopez, a pinch of Pitbull or just take in the best-selling boy band of all time, the Backstreet Boys at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood.

barbecuing at home vs. leaving the grilling to vegas

Look at you, all proud of your grilling prowess. But your beef brisket, pulled pork and grilled New York strip steak don’t make your friends and relatives want to kiss the cook. Your barbecue makes them want to order pizza. Leave the charcoal-broil to the experts. At Virgil’s Real BBQ, “meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak and fruit woods.” This is where you get the best Memphis Style Pork Spare Ribs, Sliced Texas Beef Brisket, Carolina Pulled Pork and Trash Riblets that are anything but.

eating late at home vs. eating late in vegas

There’s 2 a.m. “I might not make it” food at home and there’s 2 a.m. “I’ve finally made it” food in Vegas. We’re not judging you for eating cold pizza, limp fries or a mystery meat burger over your kitchen sink when it’s not-so-bright, yet early. We’re just saying; you can do better. Tequila Taqueria at Bally’s Las Vegas serves up authentic Mexican until 3 a.m. during the week and 6 a.m. on weekends. It’s time you dig into tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, tortas, tableside guacamole or even some late-night steak and eggs with chilaquiles. ¡Viva la Evolución!

waking up at home vs. waking up in vegas

Is that you dropping your phone into your coffee because it’s way too Monday morning for your boss’ predawn emails, your ex-boyfriend’s texts or your 111th friend’s status update highlighting yet another life event that puts your mini-milestones to shame?

It doesn’t have to be. Save your life and save your phone by waking up in Vegas. Here, your bed isn’t where you plop down exhausted from life. It’s where you nap with one eye open as you await other plans. And those plans could have updating your status to, “Breakfast in bed with a babe!” the morning after you touch down in this city that makes life infinitely better than your real life.
