Christmas Dinner In Las Vegas

December marks a special month for the Stirling Club. Eight years ago, the club opened with special guests that included Cheryl Tiegs, Alana Stewart, James Caan, and Jack Nicholson (among others). Who might be seen this year is anyone's guess.

But what won't be a guess is how many people will visit Las Vegas during the holidays. It won't be slow. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is anticipating as many as 300,000 visitors per day, spurred on by a host of events that include the opening of City Center; Cher performing at Caesars Palace, through Dec. 20; and Garth Brooks ending his retirement to launch a new show at Wynn on Dec. 11.

With so many people already making plans to visit, the Stirling Club concierges are making a list of holiday menus and Christmas dinner possibilities. To help narrow the choices, here are five top picks for a Christmas dinner in Las Vegas. Enjoy.
