The following phrase appears on that page:

"Rock out with your beer out."

That does not make sense.

Is anyone interested in seeing the Penn & Teller show Tuesday night, or the Mac King show Wednesday 1pm?

My flight gets in too late for Mac King. And, I wouldn't be around on any Tuesdays.

Sunday, from after the papers until midnight is still open for me.

Unfortunately Mac King doesn't perform on Sunday.

What are you thinking of on Sunday? The indoor skydiving sounds interesting.

By the way, for people staying at Harrah's or another hotel along the monorail, you want to look into multi-day passes:
$29 for 3 days
$36 for 4 days
$43 for 5 days

Just catching up on this. I get in Wednesday night and head back home on Monday. No idea what I am doing in the evenings yet except that some poker will be involved at some point.

I've done it before. It's cool, and takes a bit of getting used to. The LV location might be a bit outdated compared to other, more modern facilities I've been in. But, even if they didn't update it, it is still fun experience.

I am open to other ideas, as well.

There are some Cirque shows I can see again: O, KA, Beatles: Love. I haven't looked up, yet, if they run on Sundays.

There aren't any new shows I am particularly interested in. But, I could see some of them, anyway.

That's okay. We understand. We won't interrupt the negotiations with your bookies.

Here's a cool idea: The Neon Boneyard!
https://www.neonmuseum.org
Wheee old Las Vegas neon sign are laid to rest. Some of them have projections placed over them to give you a sense of their former glory.

Anyone else interested?

The forum just got a plug from Mick West on stage. He is talking about iron microspheres and mentioned the JREF and International skeptics debunking 9/11 in 2008.

See attached photo of one of his slides. He DID say that the Forums is now called the ISF.

ElMondoHummus got a special mention.
