    I am there 19th-24th, staying at MGM, watch games everywhere, but tradition is that we watch the first few games at The Sporting House (Old ESPN Zone) at NYNY. I can't wait for it. If you see a big group of AZ fans...you know I am near! Hope to maybe meet some of ya'll this year.

    Just booked at PH, so now it's starting to set in that this trip is ON! So far, have 4 people coming in for the trip, with 3 more undecideds.

    My CET prices dropped about 30% at some point in the last week (last checked about a week ago), so if anyone else has not booked a room yet, log in and check your rates.

    Still waiting for the hotels to announce their MM viewing deals. Last week checked with Lagasse for thursday and friday, totally booked of course, so that's out for sure.

    Me and my crew will arrive the 18th. We stayed at Ballys last year, but this year they priced us out. Last year we paid $440 for 5 nights, this year it's north of $800 so we found a one bedroom at the Jockey Club.

    We handicap the games on wednesday and then hit the strip during the games thursday- we even hit Ellis Island and bet a little there. Their little dumpy 'book has a certain charm...

    Nice find Numeno, exactly the kind of thing I was looking for! 8 people at the Mezz is under $300/pp for open bar and miller lite "girls". So with tip we're talking $350ish per person. I could live with that. I have at least 4, anyone wanna consider filling out the 8?

    For anyone who is still deciding on a viewing party, you may want to check the MMILV Facebook group. The group does a good job of compiling all the viewing options, along with tips from people who have done March Madness in Vegas for years.

    Enjoy!!
