48 hours out says it all. Getting ready to start packing after this cup of cofee. I am taking my GF, a couple we hang out with regularly and my long time buddy and usual Vegas mate the infamous J-Rod. We will be staying at Ballys for five nights, Thurs. thru Tues. We have a some preliminary events planned, because they are first timers, I made more plans that usual trying to fit things in. J-Rod and I are usually content just to drink and see where things take us, but the first timers need to be property introduced to Sin City. THURSDAY We arrive at 10am, this is about the earliest I have ever gottin into town. We have plans that eve at 7pm to do the "Third Thursday Pub Crawl" downtown. I am really looking forward to this! Friday We purchased Club Crawl tickets from VIP UNLIMITED, who posts occassionally on the boards here. I have done two prior "crawls" thru another company and had a great time. We are giving VIP a shot because theirs starts at 10PM, which suits me rather than the 7PM start time of the other companies. Saturday We are huge UFC fans, so gonna bet it up heavy and find a good place to watch. I am thinking maybe Palace Station, but need suggestions? I want someplace either downtown or on the way downtown from Ballys. Afer the UFC fights I imagine we are going to head downtown, if I know this group one night on the strip will be plenty. We may hit Toby Keiths bar though, it would be to everyones liking as well. Sunday We have "My Vegas" award certificates to the Sunday Brunch at Borders Grill, Mandalay Bay. I would guess that we would make a pretty good run at finding the bottom of the bottomless MiMosas, so it may not be a late night. Monday We rented a van to site see during the day, Hoover Dam, then Red Rock Canyon. We have Carrot Top tickets that night, then going to wrap things up w a late night dinner at Public House Pub in Luxor. Hopefully all goes well, will be interesting to look back at this and see if we stuck to plans or not!!
