    Anybody know of any good Vegas deals out there at the moment? I'm thinking of flying out there Thursday and returning Sunday. Got the itch to gamble (throw away) money on the NCAA tourney.

    Remember that 2-1 or 3-1 is not 'a good price' on a pot when the odds of you winning are 4-1 or 5-1.

    Early bird got the worm, this year. Lots of properties panicked and cut prices to the bone for this weekend, earlier, but the swallows are returning to
    Capistrano, and while not at '07 or '08 levels, spot prices for this weekend
    are regaining a measure of strength.

    Understand you can still get into a place like the Riv this weekend for only
    around $100 a night.

    Going in a couple weeks to bowl ... just so happens to be during Final Four weekend.

    Got an upgraded room at Hooters for $50/night ... Friday-Tuesday.

    Try the Sahara. Stayed there in October for $30 a night. I'm sure it will be more expensive this weekend but Ichecked it out myself a while back for this weekend and it wasn't too bad. Room was nice, casino was good with low table limits and buffet dropped from $12.99 to $6.99 with a Players Card. Sports book blows though. It's not even run by the hotel and is about the size of somebody's kitchen. (Although you might see Cliff Claven there!)

    When I went a few years ago, I think I might have used Vegas.com or something like that.

    What he said, especially about the book. It's not where you'll want to watch games.

    Non-casino properties start at $39 a night this weekend on Kayak, which has become the first place I look for travel deals. Trip advisor is a good resource as well.

    The Sahara has a good deal, but flights for some reason are REALLY high. I'll wait until the NFL season to lose my money I guess.

    Flights are ridiculously high during March Madness.

    I just got a great deal on a trip from Expedia though... Stayed at the Flamingo.

    If you hold any players cards at all (no matter how old they are) call their casino marketing department immediately and ask what they can do.

    I called yesterday for a trip during a fight weekend in May and got casino rates between $44-69/night at Treasure Island, the Mirage, Venetian (barf) and the new Encore. All of my rated play is done at MGM properties, but that didn't stop the others from giving me great rates.

    Also, check AAVacations.com (if American flies from your local airport). Most packages are only charging $50-100 on top of airfare for a standard hotel room for a weekend.
