    Halloween weekend on the south end of the Strip will be wierdness with the band Phish playing at MGM.

    The fans will look a litttle different than the usual Vegas visitor, harmless but odd. The one thing that makes them great tourists is they tip really well. I used to to Grateful Dead weekends in Vegas and it's pretty much the same only twenty years later.

    Wish I could be there....even if I'm probably too old to keep up :faint:

    I remember when The Phish came to Las Vegas in the 90s. It was a weekend that I hoped to erase from memory. I worked at a hotel (do not need to disclose which) near the venue they played at. Other hotel guests could not use the pool for the weekend as one of the fans (who I was told are commonly referred to as wooks) defecated in the pool after a night of heavy drinking. Within hours of the fans showing up, at least twelve prostitutes had been ordered up to rooms. One room ordered three to themselves, another room we received complaints from the call girl for our hotel tenants making overly explicit requests; at least two of the prostitutes were men dressed as women. The worst is after the shows, they come through the hotel and heckle patrons of the casino, often times under the influence of multiple mind altering substances and speaking in tongues. It took us weeks to eliminate the smell of burnt goat hair from the curtains in some of the rooms. It was foul.

    Beware these people, they are seemingly harmless, perhaps even well-tempered and amiable. But they are also cunning and manipulating. If you find yourself talking to one, slowly back away without losing eye contact. If they pursue you, it is best to not run, but rather to make yourself appear as large and formidable as you can. Fans of The Phish are pack animals, so asserting dominance is generally the best way to fend them off if you encounter them.

    Sorry to hear about that, yup, wookies..........ruining the scene for years. They are In the minority that gets all the attention and the bad press. They do suck the fun out of it for everyone but themselves. Hopefully the ticket cost and travel cost will keep their numbers to a minimum.

    Exactly. I'm going to 2 of the 3 Phish Vegas shows and my demographic (professional in my 30s who is respectful and showers regularly) will be much more represented than the wook demographic simply due to the price of a trip like this. You will still have the wooks that snag a plane ticket, but their days will be spent at slummy motels near MGM (believe me, I've seen the threads on a Phish board about the cheapest hotels). Beware if you're staying at Tropicana or Hooters.

    For me, my days will be spent sportsbetting/gambling at the PHo/Cosmo section of the strip and I don't anticipate noticing any influx of the dirty wooks. This isn't a 3 night run in Camden, this is a trip many of them can't swing. Which is part of the appeal for me.

    What you have to say is very disrespectful to a large group of people, you call peopme wooks and imply that they don't shower, aren't respectful, and can't afford things that in Vegas are very affordable I.E. a plane ticket and decent hotel? I find your post very offensive, thanks for that

    Not worth arguing. You obviously don't know what a true wook is that I was referring to.
