August 9 - 11 I haven't done a weekend Vegas vacation in a long time. I don't ever think I've booked this close to the trip but I've had a rough 4 weeks. My dad unexpectedly passed away exactly 4 weeks ago at the age of 64 and 98.91% of the time since it's been difficult... joking aside it's been difficult. He joined A & I on on 2 Vegas trips with my mom and recently told me (before my sister's 30th celebration in Vegas) he wanted to go on another trip to Vegas. We had a nonvegas family trip planned, and booked for Oct, that he facilitated (he loved that word) and now wont be attending. On a spur of the moment, A suggested a weekend trip to Vegas. This was luckily in the Southwest 10 day window, I quickly agreed and had flights picked out to go to my favorite place. After booking flights, I realized it was reallllyyyy expensive on the strip. Luckily, A had 3 nights comped at Plaza. I'm 100% ready for my 50 hours in Vegas. I plan to do a live TR but we will see what happens. We get in Friday afternoon and will leave Sunday afternoon. Any downtown favorites you want to suggest? We like downtown and are planning on Pizza Rock, brunch and maybe going to the strip.
