I would love nothing more than to join this trip, but I would have to sell an organ to be able to afford it. I'm selling a camera to go to the D23 expo and rooming with a friend that I met on my birthday for free. Then there's the October trip still with no roommate, and Christmas presents to buy for my family. Maybe that can be my Christmas present from my family? I REAAAAAAAAALLLLLY want to go!

I don't see why you couldn't. :confused3

It could be like the Disney trips where we meet up for certain things. I mean, you don't have to do every single thing with us. Maybe half with your honey and half with the group or something. That's what Tracey did. She snuck away for some Diva time. princess:

I don't see why you can't. The first trip up I brought James. I probably won't bring him that weekend though, he usually goes riding with friends.

Um, NO! Wouldn't want to make his ego any bigger!!!

And unfortunately I don't think we'll make it that weekend. With 2 kids at college, and that weekend being possibly the first they come home, it's looking like we'll just stay home. And DH is a HUGE Black Friday shopper, he even mentioned that when I mentioned about going to Vegas!!

Mink is a perfect name for you.

No, Nikki won't be able to make it. She will be in Afganistan then. She loved going out with us though. Before we left she asked if my friends were a bit nerdy and if any of us were going to be wearing Mickey Ears or Disney shirts. I just laughed. She was quite surprised that we are all party animals to be honest. Heck, she even texted Ceaser and Paul to let them know I was being crazy. She can't wait to go out with us again.

They have a locals special now thru the end of October. It's playing at the Luxor and tickets are only $29.95 instead of $49.95. I was just wondering if it's really good or not, but I couldn't remember who it was said they saw it...... :confused:

I was just reminiscing--I was in Vegas a few years ago around Thanksgiving--and discovered this really cool machine (I think it was a nickel machine at that time) called "Turkey Shoot"--I played it for about 8 hours straight--it was really neat because it was about Turkeys and Fall food and such so it was "themed" to Thanksgiving and I just loved it. Alas, I haven't seen it in years. One of the games in Toy Story Mania reminds me of it (the one where the targets come out).

HUH???


This could be fun!Very fun! And funny.

I had the idea late one night last time everyone was here. I thought how fun it would be to walk around the Strip and/or the casinos and see how many pics we could take with random strangers.

I got the idea when Amy and Jane posed with some cowboy who asked them for gum. Next thing I knew they were posing for a pic with him. It just cracked me up for some reason. So we said next time we would have to see how many pics we could collect with all sorts of random people, cocktail waitresses, cab drivers, people hanging out in the casinos, other big groups, etc.
Just for silly fun. We could even break into teams or something if we had enough people.

And then Marcie had her super giant rollers in and so I dared her that next time she was out here to go down to get her Starbucks in her rollers. From there it turned into all of us walking down through the casino to Starbucks in our rollers. Just for kicks, to see how many odd glances we get.

I'm also the one who suggested for Jane's birthday weekend that they were all here for recently, that we get random people to sign it. So they did! It was so funny. Jane opened her card and there were all these signatures from strangers, including two guy's phone numbers. :lmao:

Anyway, this is the silly crap I think up when I am bored. :rotfl2:

We should break into teams before we get there, and then on our last day, count our pics. 1 pic has to be in rollers hehe. Do I need to go to Target and get everyone some?????

But there are always locals specials on things, so as they come up I will post them.



I wouldn't mind a couple of things--just don't want to be minute to minute "scheduled"--need some down time in case I meet some cute guy (assuming Marcie hasn't gotten there first --Ha~!)_You go girl!! :banana:





But, yeah, I'm with Cheryl, i like having both, downtime and scheduled stuff. I've always wanted to do the Price is Right. Can ya imagine me "running up to the stage" Some reason I can see you all imagining that. :lmao:
Something tells me that getting on stage at The Price is Right isn't as fun as getting on stage at Chippendales. ;)

Well, darn it on the discount expiring. I have a feeling that over Thanksgiving weekend we aren't going to find a whole lot of discounts. I still want to see it even at full price. And I would love TPIR, too. I would like to have at least one meal together each day and one show or outing each day. But I am open to whatever everyone decides! I wonder what the theme will be at the gardens at Belagio? And if there are any "seasonal" events. When we stay in Palm Springs over T-giving, our resort always has a tree lighting ceremony. They have a ginormous tree all decorated (on the grounds), hot chocolate and adult beverages and usually a local shcool sings. It's really cute and fun. I know Beth is keeping her eyes peeled for us.;)

I'm thinking the Bellagio should still be in a Fall theme. At least through the weekend.

I think one meal together sounds good! And then we can each post what things we'd like to do and go from there. Something tells me not everyone will have the same idea for night time entertainment, so that might be where we have to break off into different groups. :rolleyes1 :rotfl2:

So is everyone who's coming so far, (Cheryl, her mom, Linda, Stacie, Deb, Marcie, Theresa, and Wendy) booked at a hotel? I *think* that most of you were able to get in on the good deal that Cheryl found for MGM right?


Also what days is everyone going to be here?

Marcie, you were thinking of coming in on Wednesday night right?

Who's going to be here on Thanksgiving Day, and for those who are, do you have a plan for where to eat that day. Some places, especially the nicer more popular ones, might get booked, so it's a good thing to start thinking about.

Maybe everyone can post when they are planning to arrive and leave.
And then post a few things you REALLY want to do while in town. We don't have to be scheduled to the minute, but a plan would be nice. That way we can see who's thinking of doing the same things and sort of keep it like we do on the DL trips where we meet for certain things and split off for others. kwim?

I'll start.....

Since I'm local, I will already be here, BUT Thanksgiving Day I will probably not be able to meet up with anyone.

I can be there Friday night, and then all weekend long. :thumbsup2

As for what to do, I've given it some thought and these are the things I'd really like to do.

Friday evening:
Chippendales 8:00 show, followed by pics in the Flirt lounge
From there head to Olympic Garden

Saturday:
I'm thinking of maybe hitting the outlets during the day if anyone else is interested.
I know several of us want to see Zumanity, so those interested can see the 7:30 show tonight, and then still have time after to hit Kahunaville for some fun and drinks!
Maybe before Zumanity, we can all meet for a early group dinner??


Sunday:
Are we thinking of doing another group meal at Dick's? If the whole group is going, I'll go. If not, I'll pass since I've done it twice now.
The rest of Sunday I haven't thought much about yet.



So does that sound good to anyone? Anyone wanna join me for Chippendales, OG and Zumanity. (See a naughty adult theme there?!?! lol)
And any ideas for Sunday?

Stacerita
08-12-2009, 08:54 PM

I like the idea of at least one group meal/activity per day. I'd love to do some shopping at the outlets - Christmas shopping in Vegas :yay:

My Mom and I are coming in on Wednesday--we'll be driving. Stacerita and I had discussed having Thanksgiving Day dinner at the Orleans at the restaurant we went to with Dawn and Wendy--we figured you would be with your family.

I will probably pass on Chippendale's too--been there, done that, don't need to do it again. I would rather see a headline entertainer. And, I'm on a shop as little as possible because you already have too much crap in your house now kick. so I'll pass on shopping too.

Zumanity sounds like fun--and Kahunaville. Other than that, depending on schedules we should think about an alternative activity for Friday night. I'll start checking on what shows are there then in case anyway wants to join me (and in this particular night, probably my Mom).

ETA: and we're leaving Monday morning.

Stacie, are you planning to do the massage thing again this time? Maybe you could plan that as an option for those not wanting to shop.

Cheryl, I remember Linda saying something about wanting to see KA. (At least I think I remember that!) Maybe KA could be an option for Friday for those not wanting to see Chippendales? We could meet for a meal, split for the shows, and then those wanting to do OG can meet up again.

I know we aren't going to all agree. That's why I wanted to keep it like our DL trips. Maybe meet for dinner, then split for the evening or what not. :thumbsup2

In MGM there is a Rainforest Cafe which many of us have been to and are familiar with. Nothing special, but always cute and fun. And there is a Wolfgang Puck place too. There are several others but I don't do foo-foo and expensive. lol

Zumanity is in New York, New York and over there Stacie liked that Il Fornaio place and Dawn liked the Nine Fine Irishmen.

I'm open to anything for dinner. As long as it's not seafood. ;)

I need to read back through the past few pages, and jot down some notes to see if we have a basic plan forming. I think we pretty much do, then we can get a better idea of what's happening when, and start looking at other headliners and shows.

Put both me and Mom down for Wolfgang PUck, Zumanity and Kahunaville. I will try to check out and see if Tix are available for Cher on Fri. night.

Marcie: I'm open on Thanksgiving (if the restaurant is open for lunch--we'll have to check). And since it's just the three of us, I'm also open to a different location--was just an idea --hey, wait--won't Theresa be there then too?

Thanks for organizing us, Beth.

Cheryl, if you are interested in someone other than Cher, let me know. I think it may just be you, me and your mom. Or maybe Stacie, too? She should be good to see, though, right?

Since Beth said Carrot Top is not only funny, but damn funny, I would love to see him maybe Sunday. I love a good comedy show. Of course I am pretty easily entertained.:rolleyes1

And what about the LouWho sisters? I think Deb said she's for sure coming. What about Wendy?

Put both me and Mom down for Wolfgang PUck, Zumanity and Kahunaville. I will try to check out and see if Tix are available for Cher on Fri. night.

Marcie: I'm open on Thanksgiving (if the restaurant is open for lunch--we'll have to check). And since it's just the three of us, I'm also open to a different location--was just an idea --hey, wait--won't Theresa be there then too? I think those of us who are going to be there on Thanksgiving should get together and come up with a plan.

Okay, Cheryl! I rather dinner.

Is Wendy still coming?As far as I know. She just can't make it until Friday night as Thanksgiving and the day after are a big deal for her family.

And Theresa won't be there until Friday. I added a section on the front page with arrivals and departures. At least all the ones I know of thus far. :thumbsup2

And what about the LouWho sisters? I think Deb said she's for sure coming. What about Wendy?I'm up for Carrot Top. It's been awhile since I last saw him, but when we did he was hilarious. Then again, my humor is a bit warped, so I hope everyone agrees with me. :rotfl2:
His show is at 8:30 on Sundays, which is nice. Not too late so we can still do something fun after. Just let me know everyone!

As for the LouWho sisters, I know Deb is coming, and Wendy said she wants to, so I'm assuming she still is.

Okay, so you saw that too. Well, here is a listing of all the shows. http://www.vegas.com/shows/
As you can see, there are many to choose from. It's just a matter of agreeing. Pick an early show, so you can all come to OG with us. :rolleyes1 ;) :rotfl:

Along with considering Carrot Top for Sunday night, we could also think about Penn and Teller. They have a top rated show that combines magic and comedy. I'd be open to either one.


Cheryl, are you going to take your mom to see The Lion King while you are here? It's playing on Thursday (Thanksgiving) @ 7:30. Just thought that might be a nice way to spend the holiday. (I would have suggested that for Friday night, but it's dark then.)

Does anyone have the coupon book that you get when you get a player's club card from the family of hotels that the Rio belongs too? I got mine forever ago so it is long expired, but if it's the same as back then, there is a coupon for bogo tickets to Penn and Teller. But I am also thinking that they may be dark on Friday nights too, so it may be a moot point. Sorry to ramble, but I'm too tired to do the research myself right now!

We went to see Carrot Top. He was just as funny as I remembered. New material though which was nice.
I think he'd make a great choice for Sunday night if anyone is interested. His humor is a little crude at times, but I'm not easily offended and was laughing my butt off. :lmao:

Also, remember how some of you wanted to see The Price is Right but it's dark on Sundays? Well, I just saw that they have a Friday night show at 7:30.
That would work out for those of you who don't want to go to Chippendales. It's almost the same time as the Chippendales show. Then once both shows are over, those wanting to go to Olympic Garden can all meet up, and those not wanting to can play some slots or whatever.

Just some ideas. :)

mommaU4
08-21-2009, 06:22 PM
Some other headliners playing that Friday night are:
Donny and Marie
Barry Manilow
Terry Fator
Gordie Brown
George Wallace
Jay Leno
David Spade
Wayne Brady

And then you have the regular shows like all the Cirque shows, and the magic shows.

I think if you went to see a headliner (like Barry Manilow for example) on Friday night, then see Zumanity on Saturday, and then Carrot Top or Penn and Teller on Sunday, you'd have a good selection of show variety. A headliner, a Cirque and a comedy all in one weekend.

But glad you had a good time. I just love a good comedy show. Nothing makes me feel good like a good long laugh. Anyway, thanks for researching who else is playing. I've seen Barry and Terry Fator (who was really good BTW). I heard Gordie Brown is good. Leno, Spade & Brady are all comedians, no?

Cheryl, I think tomorrow when we are visiting nibbling on popovers we need to narrow it down to a couple of choices and see who else wants to come with us. Ok?

Okay so somebody humor me. My kids are back in school and I'm trying to keep my mind off the total silence here in the house......

We've got Carrot Top for Sunday. Yay. :cool1: I think that's a good, funny group show.

It starts at 8:30. Now my question is, are we going to do a group meal? I'd like to try, if anyone else is interested that is. We probably won't all do the same things during the day so group dinners are a nice way to reconnect. We all gotta eat right?

Anyway, IF anyone else is interested, I thought going to someplace close to the show would be easiest. Here are some nearby choices: (remember there is a tram that connects Luxor, Mandalay Bay and Excalibur, so these 3 hotels are easy to go between)

Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay http://www.mandalaybay.com/dining/burgerbar.aspx

House of Blues in Mandalay Bay http://www.mandalaybay.com/dining/houseofblues.aspx

Tacos and Tequila in Luxor http://www.luxor.com/dining/dining_t_and_t.aspx

I went to Dick's with Ruben for dinner the other night, and let me tell you, it was a zoo. We didn't have to wait long because we were a party of just two, but any larger than that and we could be in for quite a wait. And it's just more loud and chaotic, not as much one on one attention. kwim?

So I was thinking we could do Dick's for an early lunch, and then something else for dinner.

I looked at my frequent flyer miles today and it looks like if I wait until after my two September trips I may have enough miles to get a free ticket in November. (Looks like it's working out great for me to go twice in September) :banana::banana:So, I am going to wait to buy my tickets. I'm not going to commit to an arrival time, either wed, thurs or fri morning until then.YAY!! For free tickets!! :banana:

Cheryl, looks that way so far. Myself, Marcie and Theresa will be at Chippendales. Stacie and Wendy (if she's already arrived) won't be seeing any shows that night. And Deb won't know her schedule until closer to the trip.

So if you want to order tix I'd go ahead and get them for you three. :thumbsup2

08-29-2009, 05:03 PM
Cheryl, what time does Gordie start? Or rather what time do you have to be in your seats?

We have to be at Chippendales between 7:15 and 7:20. Depending on what time your show is, maybe we can all meet up for a dinner someplace.

Anyone have some place in particular they'd like to go to?

We are already doing group meals at Dick's, Wolfgang and Burger Bar. Maybe someplace on the fun side, not too fancy or expensive? Anyone interested in Serendipity 3 again? Or something along those lines? Let's hear some suggestions. :yay:

RUB was good. But I'm open to anything.

Ever heard of Bahama Breeze? http://www.bahamabreeze.com/
That's where I ate with Jane, Amy and Michelle when she was in town. It was my first time there, but I really liked it. It's off strip, but not far, on Flamingo.

We could try there, as long as we went early enough to still make our 7:30 show.

Just a thought. You all know me, as long as it's not steak or seafood, I'm so there!!!

Another thought would be Pink Taco over at the Hard Rock hotel. Good Mexican food. OH, and the Hard Rock is opening a new cafe right on the Strip this month. That could be an option for Friday dinner too.

It's up to ya'll.

I'll pass on the cake though. Not a fan of pineapple on my desserts, unless it's a Dole Whip. lol But I'll take the key lime pie or cheesecake! YUM!

Thanks for the bump! :thumbsup2

It was just myself and Theresa that saw it on Friday, so it's fine to keep it on the schedule if y'all want. It's a good show. She really enjoyed it. Me too. It was my second time seeing it and it was just as good as the first. ::yes::

The current special for that show (buy one regular price ticket, get one for $25) ends Oct. 30 which is good because that means a new, and hopefully better one will come out for our dates!

We saw it now because Theresa says she cannot make it in November. I'm hoping she'll change her mind, but as of now, she's not coming. :guilty: :sad2:

I haven't heard anything at all from Deb. :confused3
Wendy says she wants to, but won't know for sure until the first week of November.
And Marcie probably won't know for sure until sometime in October. She might even be bringing a gentleman friend with her!! :scared1: ;)


Stacie, Linda, and Cheryl, are you all still in for sure??
I'm just trying to figure out where we all stand.

Well, I am for sure a go. And I am pretty sure Stacie, Cheryl and Doris are, too. I don't want to speak for them, but we talked about how much fun we were going to have in Vegas when we were at Cheryl's house last week.

I think everything we have planned sounds good. Friday night Cheryl, Doris & I are have tix for Gordie Brown and plan on dinner at the Golden Nugget. Sat and Sun we are doing everything you have listed on the first page (except I am the only one shopping with you). At least I think that's how it is.

I agree that the Oct DL meet has taken over most of our thoughts, and I cannot wait for that trip, but the Vegas trip is still important!:thumbsup2

And I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that Marcie, Deb and Wendy are all able to make it. And maybe if I lean on Theresa enough (that's code for annoy her enough) then she'll change her mind!! And I'm pretty sure Jane will still join us for things like Burger Bar and such. :thumbsup2

Wednesday, November 25 thru Monday November 30

Attendees so far and arrival/departure dates:
Beth/Silk - local

Jane/Ophelia - local

Cheryl/Unique and her mom Doris - Driving in Wed. p.m., leaving Mon. a.m.

Stacie/Felony - Driving in Fri. a.m., leaving Mon a.m.

Linda/Mink - Driving in Fri. a.m. with Stacie, flying out Mon a.m.

Marcie/Trouble - Flying in Fri. afternoon, leaving Mon. a.m.

Debra/Princess - ??? (Waiting on work schedule to determine if she's still coming)





Cheryl are you and your mom still coming in Wednesday night?
Is everyone else's arrival and departure days/times correct?

mommaU4
10-08-2009, 02:11 PM
I updated the schedule but I'm not sure if some things are still in the plans. Take a moment and let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks! My additional comments and questions are in red.


Schedule

Wednesday
Cheryl and Doris arrive this evening? (Are y'all still coming in that night?)



Thursday
No real plans set for today. Happy Thanksgiving!(If Cheryl and her mom arrive on Wed I think they will be the only ones here this day, so there's nothing really "planned" other than maybe where ever they plan on eating their turkey dinner. I know I'll be home with the family, as I imagine will Jane.)



Friday
Rest of the group arrives today!
Dinner at Bahama Breeze for Beth, Marcie and Stacie followed by ??? (whatever we want I guess!). (Stacie, you weren't going to Gordie Brown right? Neither are Marcie and me. We can still do dinner at Bahama Breeze if you want and then play it by ear.)
Dinner downtown followed by Gordie Brown for Linda, Cheryl and Doris
After shows are over, meet up for Olympic Garden?? Maybe?? Anyone still interested in this? (After the show is over, if it's not too late we should all meet up somewhere. Originally we talked about a few of us doing OG. Anyone still up for that?? Or can anyone think of someplace else? There is a bar in Mandalay Bay called Eyecandy that is supposed to be fun. http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/eyecandy.html We could go there. Just throwing out ideas, but I'm open to anything even OG!)



Saturday
Sleep in.
Shopping at the outlet mall and/or Town Square. Lunch @ one of the Town Square restaurants. (There's Tommy Bahamas, Cadillac Ranch, CPK, etc) (So I think it's just myself, Marcie and Linda shopping today. The stores might be packed being the weekend after Thanksgiving, but I can tough it out if y'all can. lol Then we can do lunch at Town Square.)
Early dinner @ 5:00 (reservations required) at Wolfgang Pucks.
Zumanity @ 7:30.
Pirate show and Kahunaville at Treasure Island to close out the night.



Sunday
Early group lunch at Dicks around 11. (Do we still want to eat lunch at Dick's? I'm game if y'all are. OR since we were going to get pumpkin cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory anyway, we could just eat lunch there too. It's up to y'all. The Bellagio is next door to Caesars so I thought after cheesecake we could go to see the conservatory. Should be done up for Fall.)
After lunch, go to Bellagio to see conservatory, fountains, and eat some pumpkin cheesecake. YUM.
Group dinner @ Burger Bar. Time TBD.
Carrot Top @ 8:30 for Linda, Cheryl, Doris and Stacie
Chippendales for Marcie and Beth
After the shows, dancing?? Drinks?? Gamble??



Monday
Time to go home....

Sat is the busy busy busy day to me. I am still up for shopping and all the other activites listed. I am sure it will be a really fun day & night.

Sun I am up for whatever the group decides. Dick's or just Bellagio or both. Burger Bar sounds good. It's no matta to me.:) And Carrot Top I would like to see.::yes::so I hope the others are still up for it. I have a 9 am flight Monday (and do have to work half day, argh:headache:), so won't be out tooooo late Sunday night.

So, I realize most of those coming here in November are currently packing for a Disneyland trip so this thread is a total ghost town. I know it will pick up once again after the DL trip.

But in the meantime, I found a deal on tickets to the Erotic Heritage Museum. They are normally around $15 each, but I can get a pair for only 5 bucks!!
Since it's so dirt cheap, I was wondering if anyone was interested in checking it out?? :confused3 Maybe we could go as a group on Saturday instead of shopping? (I know not everyone wanted to shop anyway)

The museum opens at noon so that allows plenty of time to sleep in and get ready. Maybe we could do a late breakfast somewhere and then go to the museum?

I've been before with Ruben and it's pretty interesting!! They let you take pics in there too. Here is a link to their site: http://www.eroticheritage.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=56&Itemid=54

That's what I was thinking, about the shopping. I'm all for shopping, but being the weekend after Thanksgiving, the outlet mall is really going to be a zoo. :scared1: If you don't get there early, might as well forget about it.

I just thought this was more interesting, more Vegas-y. :rolleyes1 The price is right and we can time it to do a group brunch and then hit the museum. I went ahead and bought the tickets. I got 6 tickets for only $15 so you really cannot beat the price and it's just one street behind the Strip. Very close.

But if no one is interested that's fine too. Either just Marcie and myself can go, or we can think of something else. And the museum doesn't take that long, we can do something afterward too.

I just wanna have fun!! :dance3:

You know what might be good? Remember we went to the Peppermill lounge for drinks that one night? They also have the Peppermill restaurant. They are supposed to have really good food, especially their omelets, and they have a 24 hour breakfast menu, so we can get there whenever and order breakfast.

That might be kind of fun and something different. Whatchya think?

Beth, that museum sounds great. Thanks for picking up the tix at such a great price. And you're right about the shopping. I don't want to fight the crowds for a bargain. Not my style. Especially if I'm chilling with you guys on a mini-vacation.;)

I was just checking that. I found a 2-for-1 coupon for Bite, but then I saw it starts at 10:30! That's pretty late, don't ya think?

Penn and Teller starts at 9, which is better, but still on the late side. The Mentalist starts at 7:30 and is at Planet Hollywood. I can look for discounts for that. :confused3

If the show starts at 7:30, we can eat dinner around 5. Whatchya think?


Oh, and you can go to the walk up window at Serendipity's to get a frozen hot chocolate. :thumbsup2

I was perusing the MGM Grand website tonight and noticed they have something called the "CSI Experience". It lasts 60-90 minutes and costs $30. It says you interactively solve a mystery. It sounds really cool. Have you heard of that Beth? Know anyone who has done it? It sounds like something I would like.::yes::

Has there been any specials released for Zumanity? I don't really want to pay full price. We can book KA at MGM for 40% off. I would like that. Just throwing ideas out there. Or is there something else?

As for Zumanity, the locals special right now is what the other special used to be which is buy one ticket, get one for $25. That's the only deal I've found for Zumanity so far.

I think Jane and I are going to join you all for the dinner at Wolfgang's, then sit out the show, and then meet up again for drinks at Kahunaville. :thumbsup2 We've both seen Zumanity, and KA, and being on a tight budget we'll just find something else to do while y'all are in the show.

Amy's going to try and meet up with us for a bit too. Either Friday night or Saturday night.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to join you guys. I let Linda know the other day before I posted it here. Due to my boss leaving, one manager has to be on duty every day. The CIO has made that mandatory. So in order to be able to have the time off to spend with Taylor earlier in the week, I had to give up my Friday off. So no Vegas for me this time. I am really bummed. I was looking forward to seeing eveyrone and I really wanted to go to the museum. Oh well, there is always next time. I do want to see all the pics and hear all the stories though.

And there will be other times for sure!! Marcie and Theresa are thinking of coming in May, maybe we can put something together for then. Or July. It's hot, yes, but we'll be inside most of the time so that would still work.

KA is really good!

Is is good. I've seen it twice and loved it both times! Very impressive, more than Zumanity I think, although I enjoyed them both just in very different ways.

Deb - I wish you could come, too.:flower3:

Well, I guess we have to decide which show we want to see. Cheryl - what do you want to see? I really love WGP but if we stay at MGM and see KA it doesn't make sense to drive over there, does it? But drinks at Kahunaville sounds good.:thumbsup2. I guess the plans are up in the air again!

Actually Wolfgang Puck's is inside the MGM. So we can eat there and then y'all can either see KA in the same hotel, or walk across the bridge to NY NY to see Zumanity. Both are easy and convenient. :thumbsup2

I understand. But I know what you mean about the flights. I paid $230 RT for my one hour flight. My 5.5 hour flight to Orlando in January was $255 RT! But I am sure it is because it is a holiday weekend. I haven't been to Vegas in 4 years - I am getting excited for the trip!:banana:

It's $440 RT. In 2006 we paid $176 RT to Orlando from Spokane.

I knew I should have booked before I knew if I had the time off. But with school they work around my schedule a lot, so I don't ask for time off. I just missed 7 days of work because of the flu.

Deb, I was still holding out hope you'd make it! :( We're definitely going to miss you. After last time with your knee hurting, you totally deserved a do-over. Maybe sometime in May or the summer.


Linda, Marcie says she is still coming. :thumbsup2 She hasn't said what she wants to do that night though, so hopefully she'll pop in and let us know.

I do think y'all should see a show, either KA or Zumanity. They are both so good. I don't mind sitting it out since I know Jane will keep me company and I've seen both twice. Or even some other Cirque show would be nice. Or maybe Phantom of the Opera. That was good and Cheryl, you missed out on seeing that last time.

I would LOVE :lovestruc to see The Lion King. They have a show at 4 pm on Sunday that would be perfect. And orchestra seats are $61.00. Then we could have dinner afterwards. I have to turn in early (10 pm or so) Sunday cause my flight leaves at 9 which means I have to be at the airport at 7:30 am. Then I have to work half day doing month end stuff. Blech. :headache:

But did I read that Cheryl already saw it or has no interest?

Since I've already seen it, I'd probably skip it if that's what y'all decide to do.

It's a long show, 2 hours, 45 minutes (including the 15-minute intermission), so it would end around 7.
If Marcie and I are going to see Chippendales, we have to be there at 7:30 for that so we'd probably miss the dinner with y'all.

Unless, Marcie, if you want to see Lion King, that's fine by me. Just let me know.
