I’m Headed to Vegas for Thanksgiving!

It is official, I will be heading to Vegas for Thanksgiving this year… well the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately it will only be for a short period of time as I will be arriving Saturday night and leaving Monday night.  A friend of mine is going, and I was trying to find an excuse to go  as long as it was cheap.  Cheap it was, so I switched my flight and now I get to go to Vegas for my 5th time this year.

At first I thought Thanksgiving would be dead.  All the pools are closed, the temperature won’t be over 100 degrees, and I figured some shows would be dark or have replacements.  Looking around the internet it seems like Thanksgiving is packed.  This makes my trip all that more exciting because more people = more fun unless it involves waiting in line.

I am very curious to see what it is like first hand.  I wish I could be there on Thanksgiving day, but I imagine I will get a good idea of what it is like.  I’m planning on hitting at least one buffet.  I bet they will be more expensive and I hope they don’t just have turkey.  I will be tweeting my disappointment if I step into the line and find out they have three turkey stations.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to eat Turkey, and the leftovers around Thanksgiving, but why would I eat something so readily available for cheap at a Vegas buffet if I can avoid it.

Although I won’t be seeing any shows, I will be checking out the bars.  I am hoping our favorite piano players will still be playing at The Bar at Times Square at NewYork-New York.  Prepare for a full update through Twitter.

I also managed to bag a Forum Tower room.  I have only stayed at Caesars once before and that was in the Palace Tower.  It is not clear which room is supposed to be better, but I enjoyed the Palace Tower quite a bit so I am hoping this room with be at least as good, if not better.

For now, stay tuned for updates on my holiday weekend in Vegas!
