    So I am heading out next week for our site visit and am looking for a few recommendations from either Vegas locals or anyone who is familiar w/ the area. I am hoping to find a nail salon near the MGM Grand that is better priced than the Christope Salon for mani/pedis...I want to go get nails done /w my girls on the wedding weekend.

    Also looking for a good kid friendly but not necessarily kid oriented place to have our rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal is the same day as my nephew's third birthday and I want to make it fun and special for him as well.

      Are you willing to travel from the S. Strip?

      Anyway, here are some suggestions for the dinner - you haven't mentioned if you want something more upscale for the dinner, but since specified kid-friendly, it does somewhat eliminate a lot of the nicer places.

      Border Grill (Mandalay Bay, S. Strip) Welcome to Border Grill Restaurants - Upscale Mexican restaurant. Great food, fun atomosphere, casual dining, but expensive for Mexican (worth the money, though)

      Rainforest Cafe in the MGM itself

      Burger Bar (Mandalay Place, S. Strip) - The kids can have fun constructing their own burger from various toppings on the menu. Kind of a pub-like atomosphere, but I'd say this was still family-friendly (like a TGIFridays, for example). Good food, and great beer menu.

      Any of the buffets are also obviously family-friendly.

          Well, if you are willing to travel, I strongly recommended Rosemary's Restaurant Las Vegas Restaurants - Rosemary's Restaurant on Sahara. Frommers review is here: Rosemary's Restaurant | Restaurant Review | Las Vegas | Frommers.com

          Probably as good or possibly better than any 5* place you can get on the strip, and reasonably priced, too. It definitely means getting in a cab, though.

              I think the rainforest cafe is so fun for kids; I have a 5 year old & he loves it & I'm sure your nephew would love it too. I'm not sure what kind of a vibe you're going for, but if your looking for a quiet dinner, this probably wouldn't be the place b/c of the animal noises & the rain showers, but if you're looking for a fun environment, this would be great. I love Vegas, we have been every year since we have been together (6 years now) & I know you will find a great place to have your rehearsal dinner (there are soooooo many fantastic places to eat in vegas.)

              Ok, I'm such a dingbat that I didn't even look at the date of your original post, so I see you've already had your site visit. I hope you found a great place, but maybe someone else can use this advice :)

                Were you able to find a place for mani/pedi's? I'm looking for a place to do the same as well as hair and makeup. Wondering whether its worth the extra money to stay in the hotel for convience or is their a place nearby with alot better prices?!!??

                  I ended up not having time that weekend to check out places, but have a list of a few that have reviewed well or been recommended by knotties. Hair/Make up for wedding day are included in my MGM package, but I am still undecided between doing it myself w/ some practice or finding a make up artist for our photo tour the next day. ((pretty sure foxy on the Vegas forums here is a make up artist if I remember right, and she had some decent pics in her siggy link))

                    Thanks for the info on the places. If your looking for make-up check out the MAC store in the forum shops. They will do your make-up for $50.

                      I booked storybook brides to do our makeup and hair in the hotel room and they are only charging 150 or 160 per person (can't remember the exact price) for both. It was the best price I found to have them come to the hotel room!
