T Minus 72-Hours.....

heading for out on our 4th trip this year, on a last minute low roller (i.e downtown comp rooms) adventure.

Does anyone else feels the upcoming Columbus Holiday Weekend is the least appreciated American Federal Holiday and at the same time a perfect opportunity to visit Vegas because of weather, room rates, restaurants, etc?

I hope to have a good run at Blackjack and in the Sportsbook. The better-half only wish to see some Broadway Play called ""Wicked!"and play some penny slots (i.e. Goldfish). In case can't wait for another good weekend away from the office.

I'm Native American...we don't celebrate Columbus day....!!!!! But, I can find other ways to go to LV. There doesn't need to be a reason.

Totally, understand your non-participation with the holiday, however, my intended point was the timing of this holiday at this year i.e. good weather, deccnt crowds, etc.) and the opportunity for a few folks to take advantage of a 3 or 4 day weekend in Vegas. Yes, of course you can have a good time in Vegas almost anytime of the year. \\

Curious.....how do you feel about Thanksgiving Holiday?

It's my go to Vegas time every year! I leave in T-minus 8 hours for a fabulous Vegas girls weekend. The weather is always just about perfect for this weekend and as a bonus, we do get the holiday off work so I only have to take 2 vacation days. WOO HOO, can't wait to see the bright lights of Vegas tonight.

When we booked our trip for this weekend, we didn't realize it was Colombus Day! LOL! Hubby owns his own company so he doesn't really get those small holidays off. We are actually coming home Sunday so hopefully since it's a 3 day weekend for most, it'll make traffic lighter on the drive home!! :)

24 hours and we will be on our way to Wynn!! Man, I had better start packing! LOL!

It is now T-Minus 24-Hours, need to check-in online with SWA (no early bird when low rolling), still need to pack, have at least 5-specific work related tasks in the morning, can't sleep and now, the better-half have a farewell party to hit before going to the airport.. I will be totally drained until I see the Vegas from the plane and will be full of energy when I hit the tables for a few hours before going to bed Friday morning. Gotta Luv Vegas!!!!
