    Bachelor party in vegas Labor Day with 12-15 guys. Best way to get everyone close? Just call and ask for a block of rooms?

    when you book the rooms just leave a comment that you would like to have them on the same floor or connected, if you're booking this far enough out they should be able to accommodate you.

    I’ve been to wet republic twice and encore once. Wet republic is insane and what I’d recommend but I’m pretty sure any of the big name pool parties would provide a similar experience

    Send me a PM - I can link you in text with the top hosts at Wynn Resorts (EBC) or Hakkasan Group (Wet Republic).

    And 100% you should do a pool party - more fun than nightclubs in my opinion and dramatically better chance of meeting girls if you're with a guy group.

    Also good friends with the Rhino and CH3 guys if anyone ever needs anything there. I have to stay pretty plugged into that scene obviously given my work life.

    Yea depending on budget EBC and and Wet are always going to be ridiculous - Kaos just opened at the Palms and was fun, Marquee is a good option depending on what talent they have.

    Also when I have friends on more of a normal budget (wanting to spend 3k total as opposed to 10k+) I advise they go to one of the less crazy parties (Daylight, Drai's, Marquee, etc) but get one of the best tables/cabanas as opposed to dropping 5k and having a mediocre table at EBC or Wet. Feel like you get a better overall experience that way.

    Anyone ever rent a boat for the day on Lake Mead? I usually host a pool party and get a cabana but was thinking about switching it up this year and taking a group to the lake. Any input or thoughts?

    I would go for my 30 minute noon walk on the Strip in my black suit and Ray-Bans enjoying watching the throngs of tourists suffer. The worst part, to me, were the sewer odors when it got hot.

    I've walked the strip from 40* on up to 110*.



    110* in vegas isn't as nearly as bad as 95* in the south

    40* is 40* though.

    Chicago can get fucking hot as fuck but honestly out of my last 5 years of trips mtl was the hottest. It was fucking 42 and humid as fuck. Houston (early June)is close but mtl(middle of july) was even worse. Chicago was.also early June and it was alright but hot and humid

    Going out in October, it appears Caesars has a promo going on rooms that ends tomorrow. Anything of note (good or bad) about the following places. Picked these due to price/location on strip.

    Ballys
    Flamingo
    Linq

    Stayed at Balleys like 2013, and have walked through Linq a million times out there but never stayed. I’m not too picky, as long as the rooms are clean/secure I’m cool, but my GF probably cares a little more. All of the reviews/ratings a very similar so figured I’d ask you guys. We stayed at Harrahs last year and it was OK, but I’m sure she would prefer a tad nicer/updated

    Linq is by far the best option.

    At the very least, just don't stay at the Flamingo.

    Did they do their rooms recently then too?

    They did the rooms like 5ish years ago when they did the whole IP/Quad/Linq rebrand. The rooms are very nice for the price.

    I like to stay at the Linq because it's very nicely priced, the rooms are good, and you can very easily walk to several much better casinos

    2. There are always good deals going on, when this one expires there will be a new deal

    Paris would run me about 100.00 total more for the weekend. Looks like the three above get the 30% promo on all nights, where Paris only applies for one night. Still a pretty solid price though for Friday-Monday.

    734.00 compared to 636.00

    Well, I have a discount through work that would come out to be about 680.00 so comparable to the Caesars properties above. All the other discounts through work are way more.
