all your people thas as been to vegas if there was 3 shows that u would watch again what would they be

No trip to Vegas is complete unless you visit these three - all  highly recommended.

Atomic Testing Museum

Boulder City - Hoover Dam Museum (suggest two visits, it is awesome)

Las Vegas Natural History Museum

Literally no idea there was a Natural History Museum.

It's now on the list.

Plenty of good stuff here....

Pretty sure I bumped into Flushy & LilDave in that place.

Karabiner is always there, but he's an Exhibit.

Were Flushy and LilD playing "over or under" on the age of fossils?

I obviously need more caffeine for not seeing that coming.

I wouldn't worry. They all took the overs on me. Look where that got them Wink

Doobs,
I'd recommend checking the hotels before booking a flight.  The reason I say this is the EDC is on that weekend, and there is already a pretty nasty spike for room rates around the 22nd which will presumably only get worse.  Last time I looked, there were still some decent prices for arriving the Sunday (23rd) with the £k PLO8 starting on the Tues.

Cheers Simon.

I think I'd still like to get there on at least the Saturday.  That way I can play at least the Sunday crapshoot.  Otherwise I might end up playing just a couple of WSOPs and the trip doesn't seem worth it. 

Is the Rio so bad for a couple of nights?  At least it is handy for the first game.

Benn out of action for a few days....  Did have a LOL that a couple of people I sent the wetnwild link to didnt open it as they thought it was a tittybar and NSFW...

Rio - have stayed there, didn't like it.  Large room, big fridge, bad room service, bad food options, too much apathy in getting off property and onto strip.

HOWEVER - on a cheap rate for 2 days while you are playing a tourny makes total sense imo.  The rooms are clean and tidy - not 5* granted, but being able to pop back to the room on break etc is very handy.  And assuming you don't bust early, there's no need to venture off property... room-->Amazon room --> room, perfect.

We did this on our last visit and was awesome.

Hi Marky, 

I am going April 26th, Vegas virgin so cannot wait Smiley

Im only playing small ball and wondered whats the best way to take the money out there only around $1500 or so , but is it best to get on a pre paid card or would you just take the cash?

Also me and mate are booking everything a month before, is it better to get a deal for flights + hotel, or individually. We aren't really staying anywhere nice just somewhere for he 2 hour kip here and there.

For $1500 just take it in cash, not worth getting prepaid card.

Would always recommend booking flight and hotel separately as you can get it comped that way - but if you find a very good deal online for the two then by all means take it.

All this Smiley

I would book my flight now too if there aren't any great deals about, as I wouldn't envisage that they're going to be dropping in price between now and your trip.
