Downtown? You're staying fucking downtown!?!?

We're finally getting a Vegas trip together, and you're all going to stay DOWN EFFING TOWN?

I need to let this sink in for a moment, excuse me.

What's this "we" shit, white man?

You're the one who's all like "Dude, I can't fucking go, because my cousin's getting married."

<i>For Your Information</i>, <b>Mister</b> Pinback, the Plaza is where the <b><i>fucking convention</i></b> is. Although I am to some degree going for the gambling, booze and hookers, I'm <b>primarily</b> going for the <b>Classic Gaming Expo</b>.

In summary,

Blow me.

Well, that's the saddest goddamn thing I've ever read in my life.
Blow me.
Hey, motherfucker, I'm on YOUR side here. I want you to have a good time too, but I just don't see that happening if you're stuck the whole time in that festering sewer of the grotesque and unclean that I like to call:

DOWNTOWN.

Bruce, NEVER STOP DOING WHAT YOU LOVE!!

Unless you love doing stuff that's illegal or hurts other people or both. In which case, stop doing those things RIGHT NOW.

Ah. I see your problem, and I agree; WE probably don't want to spend the nonconvention parts down there. Not that I know as I have never been to Vegas except driving through at high speed.

However, <i>I</i> have something called a "Job" which enables me to pay "Money" to take a thing called a "Taxi" to get from point to point. And ICJ will have a thing called a "Car" which allows something similar.

So relax. It'll all be Hooker-iffic!.

What's the deal with "downtown"? What, is downtown not near the strip or something?

Yeah, I'll have wheels. I anticipate being able to drive us everywhere. Four guys can fit comfortable in the Black Rage, so if it's me, Bruce, Roody and Pinner we're all set. Five can also fit, so if my brother or the Milker joins us, again, no problem.

And remember, I'll have my own car, and will most definitely NOT be staying downtown, so that lightens your load even further!

Plz to be explaining the difference between "downtown" and where you will be, Pinner, to the Vegas Newb.

Why isn't downtown the place to be?

Well, my young, dyed-coiffured friend, come with me as we learn about Vegas:

There are basically two main sections of Vegas (not counting outlying crap like the Hoover Damn and golf courses and all that):

Section 1: The Strip
What you'll find there: Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Caesar's Palace, all of the world's swankiest, showiest, most incredibly fun-packed hotel/casino resorts. The Strip is where it is all happening, where it all already happened, and where it's all gonna keep happening.

Section 2: Downtown
What you'll find there: Vagrants, low-rent 80-year-old slot players who think the Strip is "too noisy", crappy little Howard Johnson-looking hotel/casinos called things like, "Lady Luck" and "Maybe Next Time" and "Caesar's Salad", several Denny's restaurants...

...oh, and apparently ICE CREAM JONSEY and the FORT COLLINS DESTROYERS.

Okay. I won't be setting foot downtown except for the Expo.

Also: I haven't dyed my hair since Brooks knocked the Rams out of the playoffs. More, you've never seen me in person period, much less with or without it. How am I still getting shit for this two and a half years later?

Now that's what I like to hear. Now you're comin' around.

You're so perfect in every other way, I just have nothing else to rib you about.

I don't have Marital Status as something the denizens need to address when they register for this site, but regardless I am going to come out and say that I don't think that anyone is married to Vegas-Downtown.

Additionally, having a place downtown in addition to the strip is good. It's like having bases setup all over LV. Secret bases? Sure. Hidden bases? Well, OK, yeah. Secret HIDDEN bases with elf archers that say "you don't touch the other elves like that" -- wait, this is spiralling out of control on me --

Also, I can cancel my Plaza registration up to 48 hours in advance.

So if I really should stay SOMEWHERE ELSE--although I generally like to stay at the con so I can drink and play Centipede into the wee hours--then I'm possibly flexible about that.

Although all 3 days are only $160, so it's not like it's going to break me.

Okay, I've bought my tickets. I'm arriving in Las Vegas at 8:37 pm on Thursday, and unfortunately, I'll be leaving at 11:10 am on Sunday. I guess that'll pretty much kill how much I do that Sunday morning, but the nice thing is I'll be back home in time to have a birthday dinner with friends.

I got so inspired I went out and unwisely dropped $125 on a Bubble Bobble with a nearly shot red gun yesterday.

Cute game though.
