Plaza Hotel & Casino Downtown Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS If it was good enough for Kim Kardashian and Carrie Underwood, it’s good enough for us.

After day drinking in a Tao Beach pool cabana or learning new moves at Stripper 101, refuel at Beauty & Essex, helmed by Chopped judge Chris Santos.

Follow Katy Perry’s lead and catch a show (Baz Luhrmann’s musical, Star Crossed Love, at the Palazzo Theater is on theme) before clubbing; XS and Hakkasan often have A-list guest DJs like David Guetta and Calvin Harris.

Crash at the Plaza hotel, located on Main Street downtown, and soak up your hangover with a killer brunch at Hash House A Go Go. Rooms from $65.

After ushering them over to view my prize, Pete signalled to use our drysuits together to lift it to the surface. All that happened, though, thanks to its awkward shape and weight, was that we lifted up and the bell stayed put on the bottom. By now, the other two lads had used up their air so we decided to surface and return with a lifting bag. The boat quickly picked us up and there was a hum of excitement when we told them what I had found. A lifting bag was produced and I decided to recover the bell with my remaining air, accompanied by Sean Hunt. In less than two minutes I had relocated it, slipped a nylon rope through the crown loop, filled the bag and looked on, ecstatic, as it headed the few metres to the surface. The lads in the boat – Peter and Bob Raby -wasted no time pulling it on board but nearly forgot that we were still in the water. The guys returned to Wakefield that evening full of excitement, especially Sean, who’d been involved with a ship’s bell on his first sea dive. Needless to say, the first thing I did on the Monday morning was to report my find to the Receiver of Wrecks office in Sunderland because I knew that when news got out of what I had discovered, HM Customs would confiscate it. The Sunderland office reported the matter to their Blyth branch, which then passed the information over to the Berwick office, and by the time I arrived home they were on the telephone demanding that I hand the bell over to them as I had not reported it to them as soon as I had found it.
