That is most definitely not a slow weekend.

I thought the only slow time in Vegas was after the rodeo in December.

Re: LVL FAQ, Quick Questions, General Vegas Discussion, Etc

I booked a room for 6 nights (Tues-Monday) at the flamingo to have a strip base for a bachelor party where we were renting a house Thurs-Sunday. Ended up that a couple extra guys booked flights for Wednesday instead of Thursday as originally planned so I called flamingo, told them the situation, and they comped me an additional 2br room for one night (Wednesday).


I am a low low low diamond so maybe they will be flexible with you. It can't hurt to call multiple times if you don't get the answer you're looking for.

Re: LVL FAQ, Quick Questions, General Vegas Discussion, Etc

Has anyone done the Las Vegas Marathon in the past? Course looks fast, but I am kinda worried because it's one of those events that has a huge half marathon field but only 2-3k runners in the full marathon. Also interested to hear how you felt about the 4:30PM starting time. I've never done a distance race that didn't start in the morning.

I'm signed up for the Houston Marathon in January but now it looks like my travel schedule for the couple of weeks around the holidays might prevent me from properly training for that. [Will run Houston anyway, just not with a set goal time.] So I was looking around for fast November races and found Vegas. Any information is appreciated.

also, can't believe I did a "Their/There" typo.


Ended up playing this one on Friday night. 77 runners, I took it down for ~$2400

Just got in to Vegas, I know the ME final table is tomorrow. I was wondering if it's worth checking out? Can you just show up at the Rio and watch?

Re: LVL FAQ, Quick Questions, General Vegas Discussion, Etc

I remember a couple years back a discussion about non rip-off ATMs on the strip and there was one in the CVS by Monte Carlo.

Is there one anywhere currently ? May run out of USD before going home (travel card so don't get murdered on the Forex, just the local fees where they exist)

The details are here. If you are active duty, you start at pearl instead of sapphire.

Only semi Vegas related...

Has anyone succesfully used flashseats as a non US or CAN citizen?

I am from Germany and bought tickets for some Golden Knights games through stubhub. An account at flashseats is required for transferring the tickets though...
Unfortunately I can┤t register at flashseats and support is really slow. If someone has a solution, let me know please. Thanks in advance.

You need to provide a physical address in US/CA to sign up, nobody cares if you are a citizen or not.

Not even sure if they verify that address, but just to be save you can ask a US resident if you can use his/her address and add a 'c/o your name' in address line 2.
