Finally beginning to prepare for this upcoming March Madness. Last year was probably the best March Madness trip my group's had yet and looking to build on that success. Most of us were net winners on the trip thanks to day two. Probably the best change we made this past March Madness was getting a Cabana per some advice on this forum. It was $1,250 F&B Minimum for a Cabana at Cosmopolitan/Boulevard Pool and was an awesome time. Compared to some of the "couch/mancave" deals it's actually pretty competitive. We've gone to the Cosmopolitan viewing party the last couple years and plan on doing the same this year. They made some improvements this past year with staffing and it seemed like the betting/drink lines were flowing better. My host got several VIP tickets which was a waste unfortunately since we only made it out to the venue two of the days and most of our drinking was on day one. I continue to think you're better off just getting the GA ticket (with a couple drink tickets) and paying out of pocket for the remainder. Unless your sitting in a chair all day the VIP ticket is going to be tough to utilize. Hopefully Cosmopolitan will add some table games aside from Blackjack this year (craps would do well with that crowd). Room rates rate now actually look more affordable then this past March Madness and hopefully that continues. Anyone else planning to make the week 1 or 2 pilgrimage?
