    Hello everybody,

    Is anybody going to be downtown during MLK weekend? I'll be traveling solo, staying downtown. I have no plans other than watching the NFL playoffs on Sunday the 19th.

    If anybody wants to meet for a beer (maybe at the newly opened Banger Brewing Co), watch a game, or other shenanigans, let me know.

    :peace:

    Hey Jimbo, I can't believe we're going to be in town at the same time again.

    I'm coming in on the 15th with 2 nights at the D, then the weekend at Circus Circus, then 2 nights at Flamingo. I'll know more details once I check out the casino promos but I'm sure we could meet up downtown sometime.

    Anyone else going to be around?

    Will be in Vegas through Wednesday. Planning to hit downtown Saturday at some point during the evening. Not staying downtown this trip, but we plan on hitting the ABCDs (Atomic Liquors, Banger Brewing, Boar's Head Bar, Chicago Brewing House, Downtown Lounge & Dave's Bar @ The Cal) Saturday evening.

    Plan on heading back downtown either Monday or Tuesday as well.

    Hope a meet-up materializes - I'll check the board before I leave.

    No plans for downtown but I'll be in town solo at Aria from Thurs-Mon.

    Would love meet up w any VMBers, especially to play some VP with someone who could help me with VP strategy; throw dice; or just meet up to have a drink.

    I have Friday a ticket for RoseRabbitLie, Saturday ticket for Veronic Voices if anyone would like to join me.

    Food-wise tentatively planning on Bouchon after Veronic and L'atelier De Joel Robuchon on Sunday if anyone is interested.

    I'll buy your first round at each bar you mention if you can bring some Portillo's to Vegas with you. :thumbsup:

    Would anybody be interested in a meet up Saturday afternoon downtown? Perhaps at Boar's Head Bar or Banger Brewing?

    Or, how about a meet up to watch an NFL game on Sunday? Perhaps at Plaza?

    Just throwing ideas out there - feel free to create your own. :beer:

    I'll be there with a group of 8 male teachers from Ohio. Staying at El Cortez and on the hunt for blackjack, craps and and any other drunken mayhem we can get into downtown ;).

    We don't plan much beforehand but let us know if you set anything up and we'll try to stumble by!

    I called Four Queens and their football promotion for Chicago Brewing Company is good through the 19th (Sun). Your check for food & drinks ($20 - $50) will be matched in full (less tax & tip) with free slot play, plus a $10 matchplay coupon.

    They have microbrews, good food (appetizers & pizza), and video poker at the bar. You have to redeem the freeplay at the players club before 10 PM.

    This gives us a chance to meet, eat, drink, watch football, and get it all paid for!

    The NFC Championship game is on at 3:30 PM Vegas time. Think that would be a good idea? I do!

    We will be in Vegas at PH January 17th thru January 27th. We may make the trip downtown to play Pai Gow at El Cortez or Binions. Would love to meet other message boarders.

    I've had the Portillo's in Scottsdale, AZ, and it was just as wonderful as the Portillo's in Chicagoland - so I'm sure the California stuff will work :evillaugh

    Perhaps I'll run in to you at MSS. :beer:

    I just never know what to order when I go there...and it seems overpriced compared to what I can get elsewhere. It's been a couple years since I've gone so maybe I'll give it another shot soon :licklips:
