    Is anyone else out there that's going to be in town in May?
    State your dates and where you are staying.
    Maybe we can organize a get together!


    My next Vegas trip is May 9-18.
    Our resorts are not set in stone yet.
    I'm property hopping based on offers.

    The only thing that is set in stone is that Mom & I are staying downtown over the weekend.
    Everything else might change.

    Other than Mother's Day on Sunday, May 13th.....I don't believe there are any huge events going on that week.

    There are some larger events in May:
    Kentucky Derby May 4 & 5
    Cinco De Mayo (aka Sink-o da Drink-o)
    U2 May 11
    Sunday May 15th is the Academy Country Music Awards at MGM Garden Arena
    JLO May 16
    Electric Daisy Carnival is May 18-20 @ Las Vegas Motor Speedway
    Pink 5/26
    May 26-28 is Punk Rock Bowling Weekend (First time I've missed it in the last 3 May visits)
    Of course there's Celine, Cher & Elton John.

    1st to 8th... Wife and I having our first Vegas trip since Oct, which had the combined clouds of the shooting + world's ugliest luck on the slots!

    Coming back positive, going to a music festival in Austin, TX first, then Vegas. Staying at Paris then Vdara. Only thing booked so far is our fave Psych band from Japan who are playing in a downtown dive bar.... though with the Kentucky Derby noted above, I'm going to have to find out how those sports books work too!

    May 12th-16th. Staying at Aria.

    I'll be gambling the day we arrive.
    Then I will gamble the next day.
    I think I will also gamble the day following that.
    Another day of gambling planned next.
    Early departure on the last day, but I will gamble a bit.

    Okay...those are the solid plans. Also planning on Hell's Kitchen 5/14 @ 7:15 p.m.

    Headed to Plaza to talk about a future stay downtown. I love Aria but I think we may need to make gambling great again by hitting lower limit/better return places more often. I don't want to do Golden Gate again in their standard rooms. It feels like a place that was built in the early 1900's.

    Hope to meet a VMB member or two this trip...

    Hey Todd,

    Looks like our trips overlap...I'm arriving on the 27 and departing on the 31.

    What are some of the things you normally do?

    My brother and I (him 33 and me 37) like tot hit up Flamingo Go Pool in the mornings, walk about in the afternoon and gamble low limits at night.

    Points of interest we like to hit up are the Piano Bar at Harrhas, Pepermill Fire side lounge, and outdoor kareeoke (all in the evening).
