BEST PLACES TO BREAK UP IN THE LV (AND THE WORST!) PT 1: WITH A VIEW
Let's be honest here.
If "Spring Is For Lovers" then "Summer Is For Others".
I mean, honestly, who wants to be tied down in Vegas during Pool Party Season?
So, in the interest of your best, I've decided to make things a tad easier on you when you decide to break up with that pasty ball of dough you managed to make it through a gift certificate from The Gap at Christmas and some Walgreens chocolates on Valentines Day with.
But wait Mon Petite Lothario, in the interest of saving you a bit of embarrassment, I've also included the places you DON'T want to break up! After all, a breakup can be easy like KY on a Turkey baster or messy like ,well, any member of the Lohan family.
No one likes messy.
Herewith, the best places IN THE LV to break(and NOT)up with a not so significant anymore other.
TO BREAK UP WITH A VIEW:
SKYJUMP LAS VEGAS @ THE STRATOSPHERE 2000 Las Vegas Boulevard South Las Vegas, NV 89104
After a short lesson in safety (not that you care anymore), your loved one is strapped in a harness 108 stories above The Strip and standing on the edge of the tallest building West of someplace I'm not interested in.
A quick kiss.
The words, "I'm thinking we should see other people".
A quick shove.
You are free!
Best part? The elevators at The Stratosphere are so fast that you can probably wave goodbye from the street below just about the time your freshly ex is hovering over the pavement safely in that harness.
Best $100 you've ever spent.
That harness, I mean.
Jump Hours: 12pm - 7pm Store Hours: 10am - 10pm
$99.99 Per Jump
PACKAGE 1: Jump/DVD $114.99 In addition to the jump, get a DVD recording of the event. PACKAGE 2: Jump/DVD/PHOTO $129.99 Includes one jump, a DVD record of the event and a photo of the high flyer. PACKAGE 3: Jump/T-Shirt/DVD $130.99 Your jump comes with one T-shirt plus a DVD documenting the event.
WORST PLACE TO BREAK UP WITH A VIEW:
MT CHARLESTON 35 Miles West of Las Vegas
While it's alluring mix of cool air and hiking combined with GORGEOUS views may make Mt. Charleston seem like a great place to break up with a view, it is decidedly not.
Drawbacks, you ask?
For one thing, 35 miles is quite a while to be in the motor vehicle with someone who grates on your nerves like a fat stripper on a dry pole.
Also, unlike the Sky Jump Las Vegas, there is no harness involved and shoving someone from a high spot onto a rocky below is a Felony.
