I don't know if I'll do Vegas this year and if I do decide to go, I don't know which week I'll go. Lots of time to think about it.

Last year there was a pre-concert pool party at the Flamingo. In previous years, there were street parties.

Not sure what they will do this year. If they construction is done they can go back to the street party. Otherwise I guess they'll keep it at the Flamingo pool. Either way it's nothing like tailgating but I enjoy the party. We'll be there for a bit wherever it's at.

They announced the lineup for the Life is Beautiful music festival today. I expect rooms to start filling up as a result, so anyone coming to this show should book accomodations now before rates start to rise.

For anyone interested in Life is Beautiful, here's the details announced this evening.

I'd love for you to go this week. I can't, cause that is Saturday of Fantasy Fest down here, so I'll be working my a$$ off. problem is, October 26th is my birthday. So, seeing as how we've hit a bunch of shows to together, I'd be honored if you could go as a proxy for me on my birthday.

Aw C'mon. I'm sure Jimmy Inc. needs the money.

Even with splitting that cost with a group, I'd want some "extras" included & delivered to my room each night of my stay at the Flamingo. :wink:

They can save those cabanas for the corporate people attending. I'll stick with partying with the common pholk and have a lot more fun.
