Discovering Las Vegas
You may want to eat in our conference's Treasure Island hotel or at one of the other emporiums where fabulous buffets are spread with every goody imaginable, and all you can eat! Things like jumbo shrimp, king crab legs, prime rib carving roasts just for starters. Prices are reasonable and most average around $13-15 per person.
Or you may want to stroll down the avenue to take in the fascinating sights and sounds, and to grab a bite of lunch. You'll find plenty of casual, inexpensive eateries, like the Big Dogs Cafe, the Canal Street Grill (authentic New Orleans food), the Country Inn (down-home cooking such as hamburger and turkey sandwiches, poke chops and chicken pot pie), and the Rib House (traditional Western and Cajun cookin').
What's your fancy? Asian, Cuban, Caribbean or Indian treats? Or Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican or South Western? How about French, American, vegan (oops!), seafood or sizzling steaks? Maybe a pizza joint or an ice cream parlor?
Whatever it is, and whatever you can afford, you'll find it on the Strip. The town really caters to its hungry visitors and many, if not most, restaurants keep their prices low so people will return and hopefully put some nickels in their nickelodeons!
At night, before turning in, perhaps some frosty Margaritas under the stars at an outdoor bistro where you can watch and wonder at the greatest light show on earth, the neon fantasy that is the Las Vegas Strip.

I realize that not everyone can make these events, but those that can will have a great time. The Treasure Island hotel is a four star hotel. We're going first class and paying far less than normal rates.
There will time to socialize on Friday night. We'll be eating and conferencing together all day Saturday. And we'll have down time Saturday night after the scheduled events.
Folks, I'm hoping to see many of you who I've met before, and to meet many Freepers I've only talked to on line before.
This hotel has around six restaurants. It has around seven areas where we can have have a few drinks and talk for hours on end. There's a great pool and several saunas.
This is going to be a class conference. See you there.
Stratosphere has a good daytime show, "Viva Las Vegas", and Harrahs also has a good afternoon show, "The Mack King magic/comedy show" rated "g", Coupons are easy to get, usually admission is buy a drink!
"Watch out for your valuables" signs are posted in front of Treasure Island's pirate battle, pickpockets have been known to visit this attraction.

Pretty good fares. I noticed the link you posted contains a reference to an id #. Does someone get a referral fee off these reservations?
I don' need no steenkink airplanes!
