    Even I think I may have overdone it just a bit LOL but I was online and saw that Clint Homes performs the first or second weekend in every month (for at least the next few months) at The Smith Center. I actually bought a ticket two trips ago but wound up not going. I will definitely make it this time. I remember seeing Clint at Harrah's and thought he was great and I've always wanted to check out the Smith Center. Here's my show line up:

    Friday, April 1st (arrival day in am) -- Kenny G at the Venetian (solo/not DBueler's cup of tea!)
    Saturday, April 2nd -- Showstoppers at Encore with my mom, DBueler and one of my nieces (one of Champster1's daughters) aka LV crew
    Sunday, April 3rd -- MJ One with the LV crew
    Monday, April 4th -- Le Reve with my mom
    Tuesday, April 5th -- Rod Stewart with the LV crew
    Thursday, April 7th -- Human Nature with my mom and two of my nieces
    Saturday, April 9th -- Donny and Marie solo
    Sunday, April 10th -- Clint Holmes solo

    I worry that I don't have enough gambling time LOL but I am excited about each of these shows plus some great meals and spa treatments lined up. I also have my two Diamond tickets. I really want to see Menopause the Musical but I think I'll see that in August and will give my nieces my Diamond tickets.

    I hope I win BIG, multiple times!, but even if I don't, I know it's going to be a great trip.

    Well, that's about my same ratio, maybe a a show more on my end; 8 shows in 10 nights. I take it you enjoyed your trip!?!?

    Best trip ever.
    Night 1 Jennifer Lopez
    Night 2 a good Vegas friend got us comped tickets for Gordie Brown where I got called out for texting during it. Yep I was texting my friend who got us the tickets and Steve Connely Spirit of the King.
    Night 3 AC/DC

    I didn't get much gambling in and I am hoping Aria doesn't hold that against me as we were staying on a comped Corner Suite there.

    You do Vegas like I do! I work from a spreadsheet to iron out the best itinerary factoring dark nights, show times and logistics. Some nights I can manage two shows; like Wed April 6, we're seeing Righteous Brothers at 6pm and Vegas! The Show at 9pm.

    Have you seen Human Nature before? If not, prepare to be impressed!

    We've done 2 shows in a night sometimes but not often. Usually for a 6 night trip we'll go to 4 shows. Give or take. We're running out of shows though :)

    Hope you enjoy them all.

    I do think there is a point where your brain begins to "purge" memories of earlier shows to make room for newer ones. Just sayin...

    DBueler wanted to see Righteous Brothers while I was going to Kenny G but the 6 pm show time didn't work for her. She's going to check them out the next trip! Nostresshere, I hear you. LOL. I think the memories will stay with me, however, because it's just the shows themselves (most of which I've seen already) but also the fact that I will be experiencing them with family and friends and that I love! And GottaLuvCrusing, I have seen Human Nature at least 4 times before, including the Christmas Show this past December. I'm looking forward to this new show, called "Jukebox".
