No update from Drew this week, so we're just giving you a quick update on Las Vegas.
If you made plans to come but haven't registered, it's important that you do that as quickly as possible. Here is our Event Registration Page
Here is the basic schedule of events:
Thursday, Mar 31
For people arriving on the 31st, we're going to do a pub crawl on the Strip. It'll start at the bar at Treasure Island before heading south down Las Vegas Blvd to about the Bellagio, across the street to Paris, and then north, hitting bars along the strip on the other side of the street until we hit the Venetian in a big, staggering loop. I'm trying to coordinate this with witchydiva who had started this. She has a Facebook page for the Vegas Casino Crawl here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=174951579223305
Friday, Apr 1
2PM - Treasure Island poker room
First event is the Fark Texas Hold 'Em tournament in the poker room at Treasure Island. There are limited seats, so if you haven't already told farker smells_like_meat that you're going, do so quickly. There will be a quick tutorial a half hour before the poker tournament begins for people who want to participate, but aren't familiar with Hold 'Em or would like a quick refresher.
6PM - Kahunaville - Treasure Island
The big party starts at 6PM, and it's scheduled for three hours. You can see the bar here: Kahunaville. Bring a spare drinking liver.
Saturday, Apr 2
In terms of formal events, the morning and afternoon are unscheduled. Different farkers are talking about making different trips, so this will let you get in with a group that might be doing something that interests you.
4PM-8PM - Treasure Island Ballroom AB
This is the sitdown event. We have a bit at the beginning, including a few words from Naskar's mother, Drew on the microphone, Joe Peacock, Paul and Storm, and Bill Corbett. Beyond that, we're going to keep it relaxed and let everybody mingle. For a lot of people, Saturday's the last night, so we want everybody to get to know everybody and have a good time.
So those are the basics. Can't wait to see you guys there.
