    I'm trying to book a room for the third weekend in Sept (Friday the 18th til Sunday the 20th), seeing The Who at the Coliseum on Saturday the 19th. CET rates are absolutely thru the roof this weekend. I mean I've seen higher-priced weekends in the past, but nothing like this. From my CET rate calendar:

    Linq..........comped every night* in Sept except 9/18 = $195, 9/19 = $145

    Bally's.......comped every night* in Sept except 9/18 = $103, 9/19 = $103

    Flamingo...comped every night* in Sept except 9/18 = $420, 9/19 = $412 (Thursday 9/17 is also $420, wtf?)

    ***Technically not every night, all three props are around $50 for Saturday the 12th which I understand, fight night and NFL opening weekend)

    So what the hell is going on???

    I don't know what that is, but I don't like it. To the googlizer!

    "I Heart Radio" dude...it's been the 3rd weekend in Sept. since 2011 I think.

    Also "Mr. Olympia" that weekend is expected to drag in 30k more people. :thumbsdown:

    Its the reason the Who are playing. Music festival at MGM. It has spiked rates before.

    Surprised Flamingo would go that high, but it is prime pool season around that, as I think thats about when temps go from "surface of the sun" to "in the shade on Venus"

    It's also Pride weekend, but that's more downtown with a parade on Friday and festival Saturday.

    Are you solely looking to stay at a CET property? I am a relatively low level player and am going that same weekend and was able to be comped at Orleans for both Friday and Saturday night and then comped at the Linq for Sunday and Monday. Understand Orleans is not on the strip but with the shuttle to Ballys it is very simple.

    It's because of the buzz around the VMB reserved craps table at PH on the Saturday the 19th. :beer:

    That's what I thought as well. They're scared of us.
