Speaking of not planning, people tell me everything in vegas can be gotten-to by the metro system so a taxi or necessarily even rides may not be necessary.

If we want to get together a massive amount of people, it helps to schedule something. Plus. If we are descending on a restaurant, it helps ot have reservations :D

Strom is a lived in LV, so I defer to his judgement. Plus, the monorail is damn-near impossible to walk to while the sun is out, as it is nowhere near the AP.

HA! Las Vegas' public transportation blows donkeys for quarters, and the monorail only takes you to half of the casinos. Where we're going is far from the casinos, although it is near a main road, so you could take the bus if you really wanted to. Be warned, however, that if you take the bus, it will take you approximately forever to get there.

I've no room to speak as far as going goes, because I'm not, but if people pitched in for gas, couldn't you make multiple trips?!?!?!!!!!!!

If you guys wanted to pitch in for gas, I'd be willing to make 2 trips. It'll probably cheaper than a cab.

I'm taking a wild guess, but I'll bank on 9, plus 3 on laps, and 3 more strapped to the roof.

Alright, I've updated the list to reflect current plans. We're going to meet up in the ALexis Park entrance lobby at 7 PM on Friday, and we are leaving at [b]EXACTLY 7:15 PM[/b]. This gives you enough time to get there and gives us enough time to account for everyone. I will give the drivers the location of the restaurant when we meet up, so if you're driving and you forget to show up, too bad.

The reason I'm doing it this way is so that we don't suddenly have fifty people show up when the reservation is only for a party of twenty-one. If you want to come, you have until 10:00 PM PDT on July 24th to post to this thread and get your name on the reservation list.

If you have any questions, post to this thread, PM me, or call me at the number in my sig file.

lmmfao I was bored and was reading this thread again, and first im sorry to hear whitey isnt coming, second. Ive never been to defcon, but can safely say doug was right, plans arent good for defrcon, or in vegas, but stroms fight is correct reservations are a good thing, black ratchet? (not a direct quote) Strom is a lived (not a direct quote). But other then that, theres only one thing on my mind, The first time I'll ever have sushi is with all the Bin Rev Groupies (lOl) @ Defcon, something to remember. Usually I dont eat raw fish, but ive had seaweed rapers (wrappers I spelled it wrong on purpose) and they were great, not as good as escargo though. But Some fish I eat some I dont. Not a very big Fish guy. But its an experiance I cant wait to have? Oh have I mention that I am 1337 on Phreak Phactor, no literally, I Am 1337. If you dont know what I mean. I guess I can spill the beans now. But not in this post. Check Off Topic for more info.

I may or may not show, depending on 1,000 factors involving Defcon. I have a rental car and can fend for myself.

Should I put you both down for dinner? If so, how large are your parties and can you take people in your cars?

Put me down. I might bring one other person with me. I cannot vouch myself as being available to provide rides; DEFCONs are kind of.... involved for me.

I should be able to drive, I have a 4dr Acura, so I can carry 4 people including me. But uh, make that 3 because fitting 5 people in it might be a bit annoying.
