    I know that most of the following folks will be in town on Friday March 20th (except 3). Not sure if Rockybalboa has reached out to any of you or not. If he hasn't then I'm trying to see who is interested in Vegas Message Board March madness meet & Greet? I have gotten a couple of suggesttions so I figure that I'd put it out here and see what stick over the next 10 days!

    The time that I have gathered from some thru PM is after the games are over (9 p.m ish). 1 suggestion is the RED Zone Sports bar at the Gold Coast (near strip, next to the Rio and across the street from the Palms) http://www.goldcoastcasino.com/dine/red-zone

    The other is the Chicago Brewery at the 4 Queens (Downtown) http://www.fourqueens.com/dining/chicago_brewing_co/index.php.

    I'll keep score. Maybe Thursday is better since it appears that everyone is in town on the 19th (except news243). I know my first night in Vegas, I'm bonkers. Or maybe we could offer 2 options on different nights?? I'll follow the directions of.......

    Ok, ill be the first to reply.... For me, Thursday or Friday night would be best. Don't know if I can make it downtown. I have 16 people in for MM but will make it a point to meet up if at all possible. I will do whatever the consensus is but late is good for me. Like 11pm? For sure after 10pm? Near the Wynn? On the strip somewhere? Alibi at Aria? Cosmo? Mirage? Even Geezers?

    Haven't mentioned that I'd be in town just because I have others with me and no clue if I'll be able to get away or if the others want to join.

    Gold cost is a no go for me. It is simply too far out of the way. If there ends up being something on the strip, I'll certainly try and get away.

    Id be up for something on the strip as well. 11pm ish sounds fine Thursday or Friday night!

    I'd like to win enough on the craps table and then just hand that money over to packer for a new Porsche. Or ferrari.

    Late on Thursday or Friday sounds good. I would think that a strip location would be better as most are staying on the strip. My vote is Thus or Friday center strip location. But I should be able to adjust to the agreed upon time and location.

    Thursday works better for me....my flight leaves at 11:30pm on Friday..got to drop rental car off around 9:30pm. Last meet-up (in December) at the Cosmo I could only stay for 30 minutes before heading for the airport. Since I have "wheels", a meet at the Gold Coast (I'm staying at the Rio), Strip or DT is not problem. Have wristband, will travel.....

    I'll be downtown Sunday at the D if anyone is around then. That's about the only time I'll have for a meetup as like everyone else, there's a lot my crew has planned. Sunday is our day to just kick around wherever.
