Our oldest son has booked a two night Vegas trip for the Sunday & Monday before Christmas - returning home Christmas Eve. He is making good on his promise to take our twin grandkids to Vegas to celebrate their 21st birthday. He booked a Wraparound suite at the Cosmopolitan with an adjoining room for his family at some very good rates (he has played a lot of Blackjack there). They asked if we wanted to go out with them too, so naturally I said yes - as we haven't been there since May, 2011. Just finished booking a Terrace Studio suite at the Cosmo (geezer rates) for that Saturday, Sunday, & Monday, and also the SWA flights. We'll arrive there at 5:25PM on Saturday, then depart Christmas Eve at 5:55PM. We've been out there in early December a handful of times, but never that close to Christmas. What is it like the few days before Christmas Eve? I imagine a lot of the shows will be dark, but how are the crowds?
