    It'll be March Madness, St Patty's day, and Spring Break all in the same week. It should be a good time. I've never been during then, but I've heard that Osheas puts on a pretty big party from someone who has.

    Been three times for the first weekend. It's definitely a great time if you're there for MM... otherwise it's the absolute worst time to be in Vegas. It's crazy. Loads of people. So many people that it's literally difficult doing anything... including walking down the street. Lines everywhere for everything imaginable.

    If you're planning to go for MM, make arrangements well beforehand. Like now might be too late for some of the cheaper/better viewing parties.

    If you don't make arrangements or aren't going for MM, get your own booze and carry it around with you if you're planning to drink.

    The energy in the sports book is insane. If you can get a spot somewhere and love to watch the games, you won't be disappointed. Don't be surprised if people offer you money for your seats, I've been asked and seen others many times.

    Love it during that time of year. Undathesea pretty much nailed it with the advice.
