    Has anyone noticed if the half price ticket agencies offer tickets to concerts at MGM arena if they are not sold out on the day of performance? I'll be in Vegas for one of Jimmy Buffett's shows in October and it's FAR from sold out... If I take the chance, might I score a day of show discount?

    I don't know about ticket brokers, but I've had success with scalpers the day of the event for sporting events in Vegas. Just wait them out ... the later it gets, the cheaper it gets. Well below face value is the norm 15 minutes before the event starts. I think I got into the Vegas bowl for a third of the cost, only because I got tired of waiting them out last year. If I had waited until 10 minutes before kickoff, I probably could've scored a $55 ticket for $5.

    The one thing I'm not sure of is how scalping works in a casino event. Is there room outside of the MGM Grand's arena where people can scalp without the casino getting irked? I can't say, but if there is, you can count on a big win at a show that doesn't sell out.

    ***Edit: I said Vegas Bowl. It's no longer that. I think it's the MAACO Bowl or some such nonsense now. But it's the lone bowl game there, whatever it's called.
