    Correct me if Im wrong but the Vinician owned by the Sands and the Sands Expo Center is connected to that? So wouldnt everyone stay at the Vinician or Harrahs I guess cause its right next door. I used to live in Las Vegas but that was back in 97. I was in Vegas last in 2001. My aunt lives there. Im just trying to find out more info because im considering going this year. Even though its not in Chicago. But it would be nice to visit my family while im going to see Transworld as well. Been trying to call my Aunt but she is never home. Always working and on the go. Anyway any info is appreciated. Plus has anyone had trouble registering this year since its in a new place.

    My Great Uncle had a gambling casino/restaurant/bar right after world War Two, he was a smart guy, made lots of money, he modified his "One-Armed-Bandits" to make them turn a bigger profit, he installed an extra "arm" on each one so it was a "Two-Armed-Bandit', the way it worked was when the customer pulled the old arm and lost, the new arm came around and slapped them right off the chair!
    The rest of their money usually fell from their pockets into the big, hungry open floor register grates ducted right down to the basement counting table.
    One night a loser from Chicago ripped a machine loose, and carried it out to his car, threw it in the backseat and drove away.
    That machine let him get up to speed then put it's arms over the driver's eyes and asked, "Guess who?"
    The crash made it very easy for the Police to make the arrest.

    The Venetian is somewhere around $100/night more expensive so I don't see that becoming a haunters home.

    I was thinking that as well, the Venetian is a nice place and I'm sure pretty expensive....

    It's been years since I've been to Vegas, so is the convention being held in the middle of the strip? I thought the Venetian was at about the centerpoint, or close to it?

    Thanks,
    Allan

    Mister Tuxedo's Sleep-Over Rental Dumpster will NOT be available in Vegas, sorry.
    So quit sending him checks! Pay for a real motel/hotel!

    This hotel has just undergone a major re-do and is really expensive, $ 279.99 a night, such a bargin! We are staying at our old faithful the Orleans. It's down a aways and off the strip but is only $ 89.00 a night from VegasHotels.com.

    I think it sucks Transworld starts on a Sunday! What kinda B.S. is that?! Didnt it always open on a Friday in Chicago? Personally I liked in Chicago. At least that was driving distance for me. This year I got to fly if I want to go.
