Hey suaviter - it really depends on what you like doing. Vegas offers a smorgasbord of stuff to do, places to eat, shows to watch. There's the gambling scene, but if you're not much into that there are many other things to do. Shows - risque and not - are all over the place. There are shows unique to Vegas like Cirque du Soleil's "O" at the Bellagio, for example: the set is magnificent and Cirque can't exactly replicate the stage on the traveling circuit. My friend swears by the all-you-can-eat buffets, which can be found in most hotels (and some which run 24/7) - of course, he also weighs over 300 pounds. You've got higher end restaurants like Robuchon and Tao (which runs advertisements like the one below, which caught my attention this time around since I stayed at the Venetian this time around, where it's located):
There are shooting ranges, amusement park rides (on top of hotels) - try the slingshot ride at the Stratosphere for a fun thrill. If you just feel like walking and avoiding the heat you can find your way through most hotels and just gawk at the magnificent excess for which Vegas is known: the fountains at the Bellagio, gondola rides at the Venetian, replicas of New York City, etc.
On topic since we're at TWAT: there are several ADs in Vegas who carry great pieces. Tourneau might be a fine first stop for window shopping. Tesorini at the Bellagio offers a more curated selection, IMHO.
There's always the seedier side of Las Vegas and Nevada in general, which I don't necessarily recommend (and all info for which I swear I've obtained through secondary sources)! But perhaps you'll get all the debauchery you'll need from the bachelor's party!
