    The Metropolis Las Vegas is a condo building, so the casino guys are just buying the fight on pay per view and inviting a bunch of patrons over. MGM has the rights for all casino properties.

    Oddly not so despite the hype, I got an invite today to watch it at Atlantis. Go figure. Might turn my tickets in that MGM is giving me so Vegas BJ can move down from the nosebleeds. It's already a long walk from the west wing!

    I just got the email invite for Aria's CC viewing party. I also have invites to the PPV viewing parties at my local casinos. I already have a room booked at MGM Grand, but seriously doubt I will be able to make it to Vegas that weekend, so will be canceling that room. If I do happen to make it into town, it will definitely be at Aria though.

    I knew that there were high rollers that got some invitations. I was just sharing mine. Silver sevens even called me today.

    this is really frustrating, i dont have no associaltion with a host or a casino, and it seems i dont get a chance to attend even a CCTV showing of this fight? Bloody crap way to run things... if anyone has any links, or an invite that could be extended ( if that is possible) then i would be grateful ... :thumbsdown:

    Hey, if you are not going to make it, I am sorry to hear that.

    All I know is that you, Shifter, and I are sitting together, so I think my seats had improved??

    Why is this a "bloody crap way to run things?"
    The casinos are REWARDING their loyal gamblers/customers: why should they reward something who doesn't patronize their establishment? If they did that, to me, that would be a "bloody crap way to run things."

    If you really want an invitation, set up a Credit Line at a casino, and go play there, and get a host, a very simple solution.

    Or try to buy a ticket from someone who has extra tickets (which the casinos frown upon).

    Yeah, long story but I don't think I will be going though I haven't relayed it to RD yet, but I think Shifter has. It should bump you out of the west wing to a standard room! :beer:

    I haven't set foot in a Mlife casino (to gamble) in years. Don't expect anything from Mlife since I haven't given them any reason to reach out. Still would like to purchase a couple of tickets from folks that wont be using theirs and/or would like suggestions as to where to go to get 2-4 tickets.

    Something tells me as this event gets closer there will be more non - casino venues that will be doing something with this fight! I'll be watching and listening!!
