    We'll be there in December but don't have dates set up yet.
    Near Christmas, I'm pretty sure. Probably Wynn or Palazzo.

    First week of December 11/30 - 12/5 for sure
    for the GGWU. Might go back the day after Christmas
    like last year if our weather holds up. If it looks like ice - I
    can't leave my farm sitters. Had a blast that week last year so
    hope I get to go. Booked for GGWU, will have to book the other later.

    I’m hoping to get out there late Dec (probably sometime the week before Christmas) or early Jan (CFB championship/NFL wildcard weekend probably.)

    Booked in for 8 nights

    22 - 30 Dec

    Going solo. First 4 night in NYNY, second 4 nights in the Downtown Grand.

    First time ever spending Christmas away from home so not sure whether to spoil myself on Christmas day in a fancy restaurant or do a nice cheap drink pub christmas. In Ireland no bars, restaurants or shops are open so it will be a real novelty.

    But overall looking forward to my trip after a trying year. Going to try get to a few things that have been on my last 4 trip lists but still not managed. These include:

    Slotzilla
    A steak dinner
    A fancy restaurant
    Pinball hall of fame
    Play in a poker tournament
    Peppermill
    Debbie's diner
    Eat in a good BBQ place
    Level 107 in the strat
    Play in a slot machine tournament
    Go drinking in Mr D's sports bar and grill
    Try the food in Willis Island.

    I know some of them are very mundane, but as a solo traveler it's important to stay busy.

    But list keeps expanding while I read these forums in anticipation of going.
     
    Christmas in Vegas. Here I come!

    Is it time for the 2nd Annual Christmas Food & Drink Extravaganza Tour already, @MikeOPensacola & @ardee? If so, count me in! :D

    Joking aside, will most likely be there somewhere around the 22nd - 26th. Still deciding on venue, but thinking there is nothing finer than watching the Bellagio Fountains from Cosmo on Christmas Day...

    This looks like a great list, some of these are on my list too!

    I'm thinking about Vegas around the same time period.

    Booking now, Dec 7-10. The Major League Baseball winter meetings are at this time so I strategically picked it as I like seeing some of my favorite players walk around. I met a bunch of them in 2016 here in DC and it was so much fun, now that it's in Vegas it will probably be 5 times as fun ha

    Pilgrimage beyond seeds that may flower
    66$ R/T. What could go wrong unless 3/4 is all they give?

    14-16 at Delano (for now...I also have Planet Hollywood booked, and we'll see what other offers may come between now and then)! It's technically the 13-16 as I fly out on the 13th, but don't get in to Vegas until after midnight. I opted for the extra day's resort fee rather than doing an early morning flight on that Friday, since it's only an extended weekend trip.
