So we are. I'm handling lodging, he's working to set up a tourney. That might not happen, what with that little WSOP-type thingy going on at the time, but I got's faith in our boy RV.
The Next WPBT Summer Classic will be June 6-10, 2007 in Las Vegas, NV. I hope those dates work for everyone. I know they won't. I'll miss you if they don't. We'll probably dial-a-shot you at least five times over the weekend. If you're in, please email me at johnhartness AT gmail DOT com as soon as possible so I can start making the list-thingy happen.
So here's my question - I know folks hate the Imperial Palace. And really, I don't blame you. But, what's the budget I should be looking at for a room night? The kind folks at the Rio have already responded with their offer of $175/night, which is frankly pretty damn good. But that's a little more than I'm up for, so I'm looking at other places more in the $100/night average.
So far, this is what I've got - Wed/TH/F/Sat
Stratosphere - $45/45/90/90
Monte Carlo - 79/89/149/179
Excalibur - 69/69/149/149
I'm leaning towards the Strat, but if there are other inexpensive places that aren't the IP that folks would prefer I look at, please let me know. I will also look at the IP, because they've frankly been not bad to us in the past.
I will also look at organizing some more of the loosely-structured happy hour type events at some different locations around the strip, since really, we're there to hang out anyway, and who gives a shit where we sleep?
So if you have opinions, share them. I may ignore them, but you'll feel good, because sharing is nice :).
