I think the 777 Brew Pub is becoming a WoV tradition and I vote for that.

If there is any interest, I'm up for leading a hike earlier that day or adjacent day.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I would be up for a hike. I've actually not seen a lot of Vegas outside of the city (N.E.S.W.). If this was some kind of a mountain hiking adventure I'd love that.

p.s. Whilst I won't say before or after, I will be in town on 4/16, with the others I mentioned prior. We're booked! =)

777 is good and the food is better than fair for Downtown. I voted poker because I have no advantage at craps.

I would be more interested in poker as well. I can probably get a private table at Binion's. Perhaps a private table wouldn't be the best EV for everyone. But we could at least let them know in advance so they can have an extra dealer and possibly negotiate a smaller rake or time pay.

I prefer craps - because I can control the dice and get an advantage. Plus, I don't know how to play poker.

I've never been an AP at any gambling game, so if the stakes were low enough and it was a limit game, I might be willing to lose a little for the entertainment value. However, neglecting the financial outcomes, I think I have more fun at craps.

Let me summarize the plans and voting to date:

With the Wizard's endorsement and an 8 to 1 advantage over any other location in the voting to date, we might as well go ahead and declare the 777 at Main Street Station the location for dining, trivia, BS, and other such activities for the Main Event.

With a 7 to 1 advantage in the voting, we should plan on having supper at the 777 rather than lunch. This will have the benefit of providing adequate time for PokerGrinder and possibly even GWAE to get to town. I'm thinking something like 7:00pm PDT, but we can leave the exact timing until we have a more definite list of attendees and their expected arrival times.

There is far from agreement on the preferred type of gaming, with the current voting at 4 for poker, 6 for craps, and 4 for "other". I don't really want to see the group split up and go to different establishments, but I also don't want to see anyone feeling they are coerced into playing something they don't want to. As a side note, rdw4potus has mentioned that his ladyfriend might be willing to play craps but would not play poker.

I am not sure whether it would be useful or destructive to suggest two different gaming sessions, such as meeting at Binions for poker before dinner (maybe 4:30 or 5:00?), then staying at Main Street Station (or hopping over the California if MSS is too crowded) for craps after they run us out of the 777. Any thoughts on the 2-session concept?

Eh, I'll take that bet =P.

I think I originally didn't vote poker due to my exorbit amount of experience with the game and not wanting to have an advantage over members, but if others are stating they want to play, of course I'd play lol... To balance the game out a bit more one of the people I'm bringing would also play, and he's not very experienced at poker?

Who says we have to stick to one game?? We could do a 1 table poker tournament (sit-n-go) and then after go play craps?
