    Hi from the prairies in Canada (Saskatchewan)! Planning our second trip to Vegas in September. We were there last year in October for three nights and stayed at Bally's. We will again stay at Bally's as we had no issues with our stay there last year and the price was right once again.

    Last year was our first time to Vegas and we had a great time exploring the strip. We went to see the Jersey Boys show and thought it was fantastic. We were also lucky enough to eat at the Boa Steakhouse as they gave us a table on their balcony which overlooked the strip. Great view and a great meal. However, I am seeing that Boa shut down in January so we will have to find another place to dine for a special meal.

    This year we are considering attending Rod Stewart as he will be performing on Sept. 19th. For those in the know, should we buy tickets now online as I worry it will be sold out by the time we get there. Any advice?

    This message board was extremely helpful last year and I look forward to visiting often this year as we prep for our trip.

    Cheers!

    Hullo and welcome. Jersey Boys is on their Canadian tour as we type. Calgary right now I think. Saskatoon in Sept/Oct.

    Welcome to the board (again) - hope you find more great info.

    Perhaps you can contribute something for us. A Lions fan from BC was interested in watching a game while in Vegas this summer, wanted to know where or how to watch. I suggested finding a Saskatchewan fan since...well, everyone in Saskatchewan would rather watch the Riders on TV in Vegas instead of enjoy a great show, having a fantastic meal, or gambling the night away. :rolleyes2:

    Since you were there in October, thought I'd ask if you watched a game while there; if so where did you do so?

    Thanks for all the welcomes!

    Sorry, but when we went in Oct. last year it was during the week so no games were on. I wouldn't think of being somewhere where I could not watch or at least listen to the Rider game. Ya, we Rider fans are hard core. By the way, did anyone see us demolish the Tiger Cats on Friday night?

    Still hoping someone can clue me in about Rod Stewart and whether to buy tickets now or risk it when we get there.

    Create a post in "Shows and Entertainment" re: Stewart tickets. Not everyone reads all the Intro posts.

    I love my Riders!!!!

    I'm pumped for the season now.

    And now the so called experts (Matty, Schutzy and crew) can stop insisting that there is no team without Fantuz.

    From a fellow melon-head. :thumbsup:

    Hello fellow Rider Prider! Will we miss Fantuz? For sure, the guy is a stud. But, I think Getzlaf and Bagg will step up to the plate and we will hardly miss a beat. And, as we saw on Friday against the Cats, Dressler is one of the best receivers in the league. Finally, I like the looks of Justin Harper and once Durant clicks with him, this guy can be a thousand yard reciever as well.

    Go Green!

    Cheers!
