good idea ABEL...one of the places I called (I can't remember which one) had a group rate for 10 rooms or more. I'll try and remember where it was and start making some calls.

There's definatly not going to be 20 people. My guess is about 10 if we're lucky.

There's gonna be more than 10 people

I did a search for group reservations...I can't do an in depth search on it right now cuz I'm at work, but I found this website which might be worth checking into...I'll have to wait till tomorrow to call cuz I don't get off work for another couple hours...unless someone else wants to call and see what's required ...they do large and small groups

the thing is, we need a sign up list NOW so we can figure out who's going, and get things coordinated, find good hotel rates, and get the best travel deals...it's better to start early to get the good deals...early bird gets the worm

I'm home from work now, and I called that number on the website, but he really couldn't tell me anything cuz I couldn't tell him how many people are coming (I told him anywhere between 10-30 people), but he said anything less than 10 isn't considered a group...I probably sounded all to him on the phone ....which, like I said is why we need a sign up sheet

he also said exactly what I said, that the sooner we get started, the better, cuz the next three months are peak travel times, extremely buisy in vegas with a lot going on, so we can't wait on this guys! We need to get with it! C'mon people!!!!!

OMC I just called JC Wooligan's Irish Pub in Las Vegas!

I told them I wanted more info about Elevation playing on St. Patrick's Day...and the guy who answered the phone said "whoa, how'd you find out about that already!"

I told him that I heard about it on interference.com, a u2 fan site, and we were trying to get together a group to go see Elevation, and we'd be coming from all over the country, but that I wasn't sure how many would be going yet.

I asked if they took reservations for tables for the concert, and he said they didn't. He did say that they may have special VIP booths going on sale soon, but he wouldn't know the pricing on that for another week or so, but he said it would probaby be like $20 (the booths are like a little area with a couch).

He said that besides Elevation (which is headlining the show) there are going to be about 8 different bands playing that weekend. There would probably be like a $10 cover charge to get into the pub.

I left him my name and phone number and email address, and he'll be calling me with more info as it becomes available. I don't know what kind of hotel rates this hotel has, but he said they could probably work out some sort of group rate for us.

The hotel is about 11 miles north of the strip, but they do have shuttles that go to the strip.

He said there'd probably be like 3,000 people there for St. Paddy's Day weekend

We definitely need to start planning this early!

Jess, Cleveland will be a better choice for you. Seriously. You've seen the band before, and the museum in Cleveland will have really cool stuff there.

Cleveland. (Boy, that sounds weird. Telling someone to pick Cleveland over Las Vegas.)


I'll probably go to Vegas, but I have a place to stay. Don't count me for the group rate thing, but don't count me in completely yet for the show. Quite honestly, eight bands sounds like a fresh trip to hell, especially in an over-crowded bar that allows smoking. But, then, I have a headache today. When it gets closer to the actual deal, I'll more than likely get excited about it and show up.

well unless the guy can give us a really good deal on the group rate thing at the hotel, I think I'd be just as happy staying on the strip...I've already found a really good deal on cheaptickets.com at the sahara (the rooms that I found just looking at the regular rates at the marriott where elevation is playing, without any group discounts, started at like $150-$200 a night which is way too pricey for me)....I agree with you about the 8 bands martha...I don't think I'd like that much either with all the crowds etc. ...I would just want to see elevation and hang out with interferencers (geez, I must be getting old or something, lol )....Since elevation is playing for 3 nights, hopefully we'd be able to get a good spot at one of the shows...Sunday night may actually be less crowded than Friday or Saturday night...hopefully after I talk to that guy again, he'll have more info...I think I'll call him later this week

btw, where are you staying martha?
