All the hotels have some blackout dates for their myVegas rewards, but the dates are scattered and can usually be worked around. However, with the exception of room rewards, almost all Mirage rewards are blacked out for 8 straight days, Sept. 29 through Oct. 6. The blackout includes all the food rewards, show rewards, and freeplay. For some rewards these 8 days are the only blackout dates listed for the year. As far as I can tell, there is nothing major going on at Mirage or elsewhere on the strip during that period -- no large conventions, music festivals, boxing matches, etc. Anyone know of something happening at Mirage during that period that would lead them to blackout most of the rewards for 8 straight days?
