    December will be here before we know it. The rodeo ends December 4th, and from December 5th through December 22nd Vegas can be a bargain.

    Stats show that there are 32% less visitors in Vegas from after the rodeo till 12/22........That's still a lot of people, but not super crowded. Two weekends before Christmas, 12/9,12/10,12/11, the shows are still playing.

    And I talked to a host last week who said that this time 12/05-12/22 the casinos are much more generous with comps as it is a supply and demand issue. Call a casino and ask for upfront comps for this time frame as they want bodies...
    And it is cooler in December too...And plane fare is cheaper...Even room rates without comps are cheaper this time frame too....
    Think about it..??? !!!!!. This has been a public service announcement brought to you by Charmin toilet paper. When you gotta go, wipe it clean with the brand that Mr. Whipple uses....

    Of course why would we go when it's a bargain. We are going Nov 30-Dec 4. Nascar Championship Week, seeing George Strait and Brooks and Dunn also. I did feel like I got a good deal with Aria though, Wednesday and Thursday comped and Friday and Saturday for $69 each.

    Yeah that Nascar week will be busy, but that's when I'm most likely booking as well. Holiday Gift Shop point redemption. I've got so far 320,000 pts so can get another damn tv, (4k's included,,,how many tv's do I need?) but I'm in need of a new I Phone, so maybe. Feel better actually getting sent something of value, that I just blew that $5 grand for..(yes silly me) Or I'll go down the HGS dates Nov 10-13 if I can match it up with a Slot Tourney like I did last year.

    We always go around 13th and love Vegas at that time (And all other times! LOL!) It is very slow during middle of December so service & comps are great!

    Hugo, that post sounds a bit like you're channeling BenJammin! lol

    We did quite a few post-rodeo trips. My early December now -- guess this year will make it a decade -- revolves around a golf boondoggle/tourney I do with 60 or 70 other golf writers. It has become one of those really great things on the calendar to which I always look forward. This year there is a temptation on the horizon, however.

    We loved that time of year for many of the reasons Hugo mentioned. The big thing for us was the lessened crowds, though lessened is a relative concept in Vegas. There was a more chill vibe, most definitely.
