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!
