    Default Vegas Baby!!!

    My wife and I are going to Vegas next month. We try to go once every few years. 2005 was the last time. Different shows are happening than 4 and a half years ago. What's Happening now. I have A "Soprano's last dinner" show set up and some kind of RNR game show. Anything people. Shout it out if you've been there this year. Or something you've heard and isn't mentioned outside Vegas. I promise I won't tell what was said. Give it up!!!

    My wife and I are planning to go for our 10 year anniversary in the summer. Are prices in the summer or better say in the spring?

    We're going peak. So the deals are few. Summer is cheaper because of the heat.

    we were there in August and I've never seen it that quite (my 10th time I think). Deals are everywhere. Too many hotel rooms in the city right now.

    Where specifically? Me and a couple friends were talking about going, have checked a couple sites and it all seems about the same price. Looking to stay on the cheap anywhere on the strip really, how often are you in your hotel room in vegas anyway? heh

    Circus or Stratosphere on the strip. Kid magnets though.

    Prices in Vegas fluctuate constantly. Often on the weekends.

    Go during the week if you can find the time. Rooms that are $300 bucks on the weekend can be found for $100. Plus there are many package deals you can get with flights/hotels.

    But definitely stay on the strip, IMO. Don't settle for a cheaper alternative off the strip. You're going to end up regretting it when you want to head back to your room for an hour or two of a little rest( which you WILL need)...if you don't need any rest...than your not partying hard enough. Sure you can cab it back and forth but you might as well use that money to get a closer room on the Strip.

    Just don't stay at the Planet Hollywood. Don't.

    depends on the group and what you consider to be cheap. If it's your first time, it's best to stay on the strip. Cheaper alternatives would be the Flamingo/Ballys/Harrahs/Imperial Palace - all right in the middle of the strip and not that expensive. You could also get a good deal at the Luxor or Excalibur but you'd be on the southend of the strip.

    We had a thread about this a few years back. There was also lots of good info on Vegas. I seem to remember some good ideas from Van Squalen.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    I've been 3 times, but not in over 10 years though, didnt know if there was a website you were talking about for deals. I've gone on Expedia, Yahoo, etc. I stayed at Imperial Palace, eh, but yeah it was pretty cheap at least.
    Dealing with it.
