    Just got back on the 9th.
    I know I owe a trip report, however.
    I has been discussed and there are things I just do not get around to doing with the DW along. She just wont eat enough to go to most buffets...

    It truly is because we have so much damn fun together!!

    Now I like to play poker and BJ and Pai Gow etc.
    DW does NOT, so for my birthday (Feb 1) I am getting airfare to go alone to Vegas.

    Thinking march 13th-18th or so, Most likely at the Flamingo.

    Anyone else planning on going out around that time?

    Always looking for gambling buddies !!!

    yep

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I checked that out and choose to avoid the collage would be alfa males.

    I am NOT a sports fan.

    Going March 14-20. It's between NASCAR and March madness week and weekends. But it is St Patricks day weekend. I thinks it's a good time to be in Vegas but to be honest anytime I am in Vegas is a good time to be there.

    Where you staying and what games do you enjoy?

    Actually, its pre-March Madness. Not as many frat boysd, but still a lot of sports fans. All the major conference tournaments are that week and weekend. Still a lot of sports action that week

    My Husband and I will be arriving Sat the 23rd so is it safe to say that is the height of all the madness?

    Sat/Sun March 23-24 is the first weekend of the tournament. However, the most games are played on Thursday and Friday (March 21-22). Strictly speaking from a fan's perspective, Thursday/Friday is the height of basketball game-watching and parlay betting action.

    Saturday/Sunday will be busy enough - even though there are fewer games to watch. Are you into basketball or just going to hang out and wear your college shirts?

    Rock Chalk!

    Thanks! My husband is a huge sports fan so he will be in his glory but I just love Vegas and this is the only time of year that will work for us. The extra crowds should make for a better party atmosphere!!
