    Ahem!

    Well maybe not mayhem as I will be travelling with the wife but myself and the wife will be heading out to LA and Vegas from 16th - 26th May.

    Would be great to meet up with some board folk if you're in town!

    I usually go Mem day weekend, but that's because there's a UFC fight.

    it looks like there won't be this year, which is weird. but whatever.

    So does that mean you aren't going for that weekend this year?

    As a Brit I was tempted to come a week earlier and see Khan fighting , problem is his chin is too weak to tempt me enough. Prefer to be in Vegas for the culmination of the BPL so I can put some parlays on and get drunk watching the game at 8am local time!

    We're headed out the last weekend in April and surprisingly... flights are outrageously expensive from DC that weekend. As bad as I've ever seen them.

    My hunch is that for the past few years there have been fights occurring that weekend in Vegas and other things like the derby that would attract many people to Vegas that weekend. I suspect the airline pricing models haven't taken into account that there really isn't anything to speak of happening that weekend and the prices will fall drastically. Especially May/Pac last May 1. I've checked the flights and although they're extremely pricey right now, they're virtually empty. This is the flight I normally take, roundtrip from DCA nonstop on American. Usually it's around $500. Right now it's $690ish. I can't imagine with gas prices as low as they've ever been the price needs to be that expensive.

    Of course, I may have missed something, but since the Aria was extremely inexpensive for my family to book ($500 for three nights incl the weekend), I'm hoping my thinking is correct.

    At least until April 1, I'm planning to play chicken with flight prices and see who blinks first.

    I've now confirmed I will be in Vegas from Saturday 14th May until Friday 20th when I head to San Fran. Two nights comp at Caesars in a standard room then 4 comp at Cosmo in a terrace studio premium view balcony.

    Would love to say hi to some people if they are planning to be in town!
