    Think my summer trip got knocked into oblivion today, with things escalating and the goverments understandable recommendations for self isolation of a minimum 12 weeks*

    Now planning to fly out December 9th and back December 29th. Plenty of time for mischief, and get out odf town before the NY chaos descends!

    If by some miracle that changes and I make the summer, I better win on that trip if I want to do this one :)

    *12 weeks for vulnerable persons

    I booked a May trip as soon as I came back from my February trip, well that’s not going to happen, our family summer trip is looking unlikely so I’m now hoping for a family Xmas/New Year trip.....

    I will see you in December, at a minimum for my annual trip between Christmas and New Years. I also may be there for a short weekend trip in early December if the big Wynncore event, the "Passport to Wynn Finale Drawing Weekend", will still be held December 10th-12th.

    This may be the first time that Vegas is busy throughout December with pent up demand for trips before the year ends, especially for international travelers but I think for domestic travelers who have long flights as well.

    I'll hopefully be there for both your trips, all being well :D

    We are planning our "second annual" Christmas in Vegas December 23 to 27. We really enjoyed our stress free Christmas in Vegas and we're making it our new tradition. Our friends who went with us are doing the same.

    Sounds great! I'm always in for some drinks :cool::beer:

    I might be dipping on the 22nd, if both HGS events go ahead, though.

    I recently booked for December 13-18 at Caesars Palace. It will be my first time staying there. I'll be in a LAUREL COLLECTION AUGUSTUS STRIP VIEW ROOM. This will be the first trip since 2014 that I'll be staying at a non MGM property. I'm hoping for the best!!!

    We are hoping to have our second annual Christmas in Vegas but are holding off on actually booking for a while.

    If we don't go far afield for Christmas we might hit Vegas the weekend before.

    We’d go in December but only if there’s a PROVEN vaccine. Which is why I wouldn’t think we would go in December as a result.
    We are so over conservative in non political areas. Damn damn damn. BUT I’m HOPING we look back next May and regret the good time we missed. I don’t mind being wrong about this at all.
     
    At last, and finally it's close.

    If the visa waiver is reinstated by then, we will possibly be there. It would be part of OH's long trip for the whole Visa duration. I'm thinking 6 weeks, mid to late Nov to late Dec early Jan. He's hoping for mid-Nov to mid-Feb. He will be on his own.

    By Dec things should sort out a bit. You'll know what to expect. It won't be the old days, but should be better than initial reopening.

    My wife and I have just rescheduled our July trip for the opening weekend of NFR Dec 3-6. I will be planted at a craps table while my wife and her sister go watch the rodeo.

    Booked a Christmas / 50th b-day trip from the 16th to 28th for the good lady and I. Caesars / Cosmo / Luxor. Some great offers around; Octavius room comped, wraparound suite for the usual price of a studio at Cosmo (not stayed there before) and no resort fees Tower 1 BR at Luxor all comped too. Was eyeing Sept, though too many unknowns and was just not comfortable enough in the end.

    Anyone up for a festive hat wearing casino run / crawl on the 25th??
