How to Live It Up at the End of the World

LAS VEGAS ( TheStreet) -- Doomsday prophecies abound for Dec. 21. If it's true that's the end of the world, there's no better place to spend your final hours exhausting your bucket list than in Las Vegas, a city of excess where you can live life to the fullest. TravelsinTaste has some suggestions for you whether you'd like to have a meal of a lifetime, max out your credit cards, live like a celebrity or even have that long-postponed wedding. After all, if the world doesn't end, at least anything that happens in Vegas will stay in Vegas.

Live like there's no tomorrow
Begin your over-the-top experience by being picked up by limo and whisked to The Villas at The Mirage. This decadent den of luxury will run you only $3,500 a night, but think of all you'll get: 24-hour butler service, two master bedrooms, a private backyard oasis complete with lap pool, a calming hot tub, putting green, a soothing fountain and outdoor music system to take your mind off the rat race. There's even a refreshing mist system to gently cool you down. If you care to venture outside your oasis (but why would you?) you have complimentary admission to the spa and the adult European style pool experience, plus exclusive tee times at Shadow Creek, the Tom Fazio 18-hole golf course. You'll never want to leave.

Have a meal of a lifetime
Want to try a meal by Chef of the Century Joel Robuchon? His eponymous restaurant in the MGM is just the place for gourmands to have the meal of a lifetime. Having come out of retirement to open his first United States restaurant, he has transformed the Las Vegas dining scene. For your magnificent meal you can either choose from a 16-course tasting menu including Robuchon's specialties such as Le Caviar, a trio dish of thin couscous and Osetra caviar, smooth cauliflower cream and delicate gelee of green asparagus, in addition to La Langoustine Truffled langoustine ravioli with chopped cabbage, Le Bar pan-fried sea bass with five spices served with verjus sauce. Or simply try one of everything off the a la carte menu. After all, after the world ends who cares about the calories?

Party like a rock star
After dinner it's a must to join in on Las Vegas' famous lavish nightlife scene, complete with celebrity sightings at one of the strip's newest hotspots, 1 Oak at The Mirage. Known for its A-list clientele, from Katie Perry and Fergie to John Legend, here is where you can rub elbows with the celebrities -- or even request their preferred tables -- and soak up 16,000 square feet of sexy while sipping sensational cocktails and taking in the music.

Throw caution to the wind
For fashionistas looking to go out in style (after all, if the world ends it's doubtful your credit card company will collect), Crystals at CityCenter features a wide assortment of high-end fashion retailers. Snag a pair of coveted Gucci "Gianni" sneakers, designed exclusively for Crystals and made of precious python, ostrich and crocodile skins. Stop by Gucci, Tom Ford, Prada or Emilio Pucci for some of the worlds' best fashion accessories. Or prefer to get some baubles? Duck into Tiffany (TIF) for that perfect engagement and wedding ring. Once you're all decked out, you're ready for your next big adventure:

'Til death do us part
Now that you've got that engagement ring, why not splurge? After all, it's for that special someone. For $25,000, lovebirds can say "I do" with the Cosa Bella Bellagio Wedding Package. The package will be one you'll never forget, with a white petal-strewn walkway and live harp music played during the walk to the altar. You'll even get a three-night stay in an extravagant Lakeview Penthouse Suite at the Bellagio and the choice of a romantic dinner at either award-winning restaurant Picasso or Jean-George Vongerichten's Prime as well as tickets to Cirque du Soleil's finest performance, O, and a $1,000 credit at Spa Bellagio.
