    My Trip Report

    Starting to get pre-trip jitters already. Group of 6 (all guys around age 28) heading out for the 2nd weekend of the tournament.
    Half of us are staying at the Barbary; while the other guys are at IP. Close enough I guess.

    We've got two Vegas virgins that are in store for a good time.

    Here's an interesting line, to get there we're taking 5 different flights. 3 from Milwaukee and 2 from O'hare. Funny thing is we're all expected to get there within a half hour of each other.

    Rest assured we'll be playing the b-ball games. But we'll also spread some money around the tables(bj, Let it Ride, craps), vp, and a few slots. Oh did I mention we'll have a couple Miller Lites each hour?

    Can't wait!

    We have a group of 15 or so coming in the previous weekend 3/19 - 3/23. Just over a month away. We are getting pumped up for it as well!

    Any idea where the best place to watch the NCAA games is going to be? Are the seats in most of the sportsbooks reserved? I know Bellagio is my favorite book, but I don't know if we'll be able to get any of the BIG comfy chairs or not.

    I went during the first round last year and tables were hard to come by.

    I seem to remember some tables being reserved, but have no idea what the process was to accomplish that.

    The good seats will be staked out early. You may have to get there 2-3-4 hours before the games start to get good seats. Maybe get an area and take shifts going to the tables/bar/getting breakfast/whatever. Best of luck.

    If you find a good spot let me know. Oh yeah and if you notice a hot team feel free to share that to!
