Las Vegas Here I come!

I'm in the middle of one holiday (currently in Cyprus, staying at my sister's flat near Limassol, back in the UK on Monday) and I've already booked the next one (sort of).

The Venetial Resort Hotel Casino and a ticket for Microsoft's MIX08 conference in Las Vegas are now booked. Hotel is booked for the week 3rd March to 8th March, with the conference just taking up 2.5 days at the end of that week. I've never been to Las Vegas so looking forward to a couple of days R&R beforehand. I missed MIX07 last year because I'd booked Microsoft's PDC conference in L.A. for later that year but then they went and cancelled it, so this year I'm not taking any chances. The UK version of the MIX conference which I attended a few weeks ago here in London was a pale shadow of the US version of these things and it's better to go direct to the source, especially as they're usually timed to coincide with major new releases from Microsoft.

Will book flights when I get back to the UK (late on Sunday) - not sure at this stage whether I'll also be able to fit in a trip to Los Angeles as well.

C'est Mooch,


Oooh, sounds like fun.(that's sarcasm dearie)

If you are around earlier in the week, I may come bother you. It's not a bad drive, and the room rates on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays are usually fabu.

Want a tourguide? I do go to Vegas several times a year...

You have email (if you don't email me because it means I've used the wrong email address)

I would love to got to vegas someday, I would love to go there and see all the sights maybe play a few slotmachines and play some bingo. Through in a Tom Jones concert if he still does them. see some ratpack tributes. Would love to have seen Frank sinatra live in vegas.ahhhhhhh one day.I have been playing the demo games on this online casino uk site. I have also got into playing keno games which is similiar to bingo except you get to pick your numbers before the game starts. I like playing neptunes keno the most. they have also got online fruit machine demos too. its all given me the taste for Vegas.

I would like to go to Las Vegas and play in a high roller casino but it’s an expensive thing to do, even more so when you live in the UK. I have to resort to playing a casino game online instead which lets me win the money but I miss out on the atmosphere, but still save £600 on the 14 hour flight. So until I win big all I’ll do is play online casino dreaming of Las Vegas.
