You don't need an excuse to overindulge in Vegas , but if you feel the need, there's the end of the Maya calendar on Friday. Maybe a $5,000 hamburger is what's needed for a final feast. Or, to drown one's sorrows, some fine cognac -- at just $975 a shot -- may do the trick. Hey, as the saying goes, “You can't take it with you.” Robert Flicker, a Sin City publicist,  came up with the word “ArmagedDINE” to describe the various ways in which folks can enjoy a belly-filling, wallet-draining gastronomic gratification.

Comedian George Wallace is about to end his 10-year run on the Las Vegas Strip. He has announced that his show will go dark later this month. Wallace , who celebrated his show's 10th anniversary during a star-studded performance in March, said his last 10 p.m. show at the Flamingo will be April 26.   "I've been headlining longer than any other African American comedian, and that includes Redd Foxx and Sammy Davis Jr.," he said.   "[Jerry] Seinfeld wants me to go back on the road with him," Wallace said of his longtime friend.

Regarding your article "Faulty Towers" (Weekend Escape, July 25), about the Venetian resort in Las Vegas, I couldn't agree more. After being enticed by the slick advertisements and a phone conversation assuring us that the hotel was complete, I opted for the Venetian over the Bellagio on Father's Day weekend. Although the beautiful room was ready upon our arrival, I found the hotel extremely disappointing, from the under-landscaped pool area to the close proximity to the Strip. The museum-like grand lobby area is pretty, yet completely void of seating or dramatic indoor greenery.

It's too bad Tom Gorman went to the Bellagio Sunday brunch ("In Sin City, a Spot Worth Coveting," Weekend Escape, April 7). If he had stayed at the Palms and enjoyed Sunday brunch at the newly opened Garduno's restaurant in the hotel, he would have enjoyed the finest chile verde and sopaipillas west of New Mexico. We have driven to Albuquerque just for a "Garduno's fix," and now it is just a few hours away. JANA GUEST Ridgecrest

Ithappens. We have a blast spending money in the shops, restaurants and casinos (oh yes, the casinos) only to realize that our travel budget is shot. Sure, you can pull out the plastic, but in Vegas, you don't have to. In fact, Sin City is teeming with free stuff to do and see after you've played that last chip. FOUNTAINS OF THE BELLAGIO Grab a bench to view this stellar choreographed water show - consisting of more than 1,200 dancing fountains and a spectacular sound system - at the Bellagio.
