    Downloaded Tapatalk so I can try my hand at some live trip reporting! Celebrating my 50th this weekend in my favorite style!

    Staying at Aria for the weekend because I have to enjoy the Platinum perks before I lose them in the fall (unless this turns out to be a *really* good trip). We booked the trip and then said "hey should we invite some friends?" "Sure, but dunno who will come..." Turns out 12. 12 is how many will come if you ask that question.

    The plan includes a cabana on Friday - because I can't talk myself out of hitting the pool if we have a cabana, right?! Saturday I left the plans up to the hubby to surprise me and deal with the logistics of 12 people for dinner. Sunday will be kayaking below Hoover Damn and Ka in the evening, and in between it all, much slots! And food! And slots! And apparently some VP because that's where everyone is winning the $$$ this week!

    Now I just have to get through a couple more days at work. So close now....

    Thanks! Wish they had too, but I fully expect we'll find ourselves in Lake Charles at the same time one of these weekends!

    Have a wonderful 50th! I can’t imagine keeping up with 12 friends in Vegas! A cabana is a great idea for so many.

    Good luck!

    I think you probably know this, but just in case, it's EDC weekend. I doubt it'll impact you too much at Aria (I imagine Cosmo and Palms are both going to be messes, though), but just something to keep in mind.

    Happy 50th to you! Your comment about “12. 12 people will come if you ask that question,” really gave me a good chuckle! Hope hubby comes up with some fantastic plans for that day!

    And kayaking below Hoover Dam sounds amazing! Please post lots of pics and details!

    Oh! Do it! This is the second time for us - we did it last year and loved it so much we're going back,. Look for trips that take you to Emerald Cave - it is absolutely gorgeous and a nice break from the madness of the strip for a few hours. :)

    Thanks! Flying SW this time around as they were the best non-Spirit/Allegiant/Frontier option from Austin. The prices are great on those other until you want to start adding things like a seat... or... using the jetway to board the plane vs. running alongside it and jumping. ;)

    Ack! Need opinions from ya'll - we just checked the weather and it is only supposed to be in the low 70s on Friday - the day we have the cabana. Think 70s in Vegas is too cold for the pool? Debating if we should cancel the reservation.

    If it’s going to be sunny, low 70s is plenty hot. We sit out by the pool in the 60s as long as there’s sun, that surrounding concrete attracts the heat!

    I agree with @CT Slotters. 60 degrees, if not windy, is plenty warm in the sun to sit by the pool. 70 will be great!

    It's all relative. If you're from Minnesota, 70s is practically sweltering. As a native New Yorker, I find 70s to be perfect. But it's absolutely not too cold for the pool -- bear in mind that just a few months ago it snowed in Vegas and they closed the schools! The wind is always the wildcard, but the Aria pool complex is pretty well walled off and I've never noticed any wind issues there.
