    Don't know if this is best thread spot.. but....

    Co-worker and I going out for the tourney but due to a last min (very last min) pet emergency they cannot go now..

    So i'll be there as of now solo Wednesday-Saturday/Sunday (flexible flight via SW).. really don't want to go solo.. but anyone here in or been in a similar situation? Did you have fun?

    I'd obviously be willing to meet up and party with you fine folks if anyone wanted to get together :beer:

    I have more fun when I split from the pack and go solo. So many people there are up for whatever that it's easy to just be by yourself without any feeling of awkwardness. You just might need a bit more liquid courage. I also found that a lot of people are in Vegas solo so I end up making friends with them and tagging along.

    You will meet so many people during MM, that you will have a great time. Going solo is great. Just don't tell those ladies of the night you are alone. If you feel uncomfortable, just tell people you are meeting up with your friends later. Have a great time.

    When I meet ladies of the night, I work with them to "find their client" -- I make a great wingman. Not trying to catch a cold in Vegas if you know what I mean.

    Solo trips are great. March Madness will allow you to make friends wherever you're watching the games. The freedom of moving around and doing whatever whenever is awesome.

    About a third of my trips are solo. Love the freedom to move about and there is 0 schedule.

    I love trips with friends as well and they are pretty unstructured as well.

    You picked a great time to come solo because there will be people from all over. As someone said earlier, team shirts will let you know something about people around you and they are great conversation starters

    As others have said, during mm no one will even notice you are alone. Everyone watches the games as a hive wherever the games can be seen, which is everywhere. Vegas in general is the best place for solo travelers.

    Went solo last year for March Madness. Always plenty going on. Easier to get a seat anywhere to eat also! Headed out for second week of MM but this time got my bud coming with. Have fun, such a great time to be there

    Thanks for all the confidence boosters guys - Yeah I'll have to pack all my butler shirts and try to chat it up with people at the sports books... I figured I'll have an easier time snagging seats too! :popcorn:
