So I have gone to Vegas the last 2, 3, 4 January's out of 6 or so? I always go when I get round trip price for $100 or less out of Chicago (thanks Spirit or Frontier). I usually went for 2-3 nights. Nothing long, nothing crazy - just a quick escape to have some fun and relax. I am cheap as hell. I would rather pay $100 round trip or less (currently going to cost about $190). I would rather use the $90 "savings" into a slot or food or whatever. Am I being an idiot? I have free room offers at Blue Chip (Boyd) or Four Winds. I feel like I can just go there for a night and kick back. However, the downside is that it's not Vegas. Like, it can get boring if you are in a same spot for extended time. It's not like I can just walk out of the casino and do something else. So I am slightly bummed. On the other hand, last year, for NYE, I didn't book my trip until around mid-Dec, if I recall correctly. So there's still a small chance. I have free rooms downtown and on the Strip. I was gonna try to go on Jan 1 to the 3rd or 4th. Just wanted to unload, lol. But hey, spring break is around the corner too.
