Thank you for that. I'm assuming I can get them at the Rio as well as any Harrah's property?

thanks again..

You will need picture ID to get the card. As obvious as that seems, an awful lot of people seem to not have theirs when they need it.

Either that or you have friends with morals. How could that have happened?

Are you crazy? These people would never book a trip less then 2 months in advance. See you all August 19 - 23rd, 2009. I will bring the celery.

Gross miscalculation on my part.

Understatement of the year. Stay out late and have some real fun while they inevitably go to sleep early.

Incidentally, bringing certain foods to your room isn't a horrible idea. My friends and I used to bring breakfast bars because we were sharing 6-8 to a room (i.e. a lot of people per bathroom) and it was a good way to sit around waiting for the shower. It's also pretty standard to pick up some beer to pre-drink before you go out to the bars.

Yeah I'll pick you up at the airport, just go out the door marked "taxi" and wait for me in the big line.

On that subject, does anyone know what the exact legal position/sanctions are regarding "carry out" buffets.

re: 8 people in 2 rooms.

I stayed with 7 others in 2 of the venetian concierge suites. They didn't even realize when we went up for the drinks or the appetizer stuffs, as long as we had keys. We got an extra one per each room and had someone without a key usually when they were sleeping. It can work.

Disclaimer: I do not endorse this, nor do I endorse scamming/cutting corners with hotels in general. I'm merely giving a relevant story.
