If you want your Vegas vacation to take a slightly more punk-rock spin than the cocktail lounges at most casinos offer, head to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's newest restaurant, Culinary Dropout. An edgy, if massive pub, the 6,000-square-foot space can seat up to 320 patrons, and is conveniently located near the hotel's pool scene; it even offers a 3,000-square-foot patio with couches and fire pits. While two-thirds of the menu is devoted to boozing (it is Vegas, after all), the grub options are well worth the indulgence. In particular, sink your teeth into an order of chicken-fried pork chops, honey-drizzled biscuits, soft pretzels with provolone fondue or the hard-to-find Iberian Spanish ham from the charcuterie bar. You'll be even luckier to find yourself here for brunch while nursing a morning-after hangover: Order the Cap'n Crunch-crusted French toast with cereal milk custard, and a bacon Bloody Mary, stat!
