Vegas After hours.

I'm all up for some serious geek action some coding hacking and such.
Code camp will be glorious and I am super excited to be involved.

But I am a big fat Scouser who is not going to be able to go to Sin City and not sample as much as I possibly can, and I have been advised of quite a few things that I need and want to do, and I don't want to do it on my sad billy lonesome.

In no particular order hotels and activities

New York, New York
1. Roller coaster, I bloody love a thrill
2. Eat a giant steak in Gallaghers steak house "Cowboy Ribeye steak" I believe
3. Take in a few shows TheBlue man Group and some cirque de sole 2 shows $99. I missed out seeing the blue man group when they came to the uk the tickets where over $200 if you don't know who they are youtube is your goal

Stratosphere
1. All the bloody rides at that height yippee
2.SkyJump http://www.skyjumplasvegas.com Who will have the balls to jump off a 108 storey building with me. Let's video it and scream buzz touch rocks lol

I wanna try all the gambling tables, I've been watching Deadwood on Netflix and the confusing world of Craps intrigues me.

Penn and teller they must be playing somewhere.

That place where they sell stuff in Pawn Wars, I need to buy a plectrum for a friend.

I've heard they have machine gun ranges but I'm shit at Call of Duty (and Angry Birds come to think about it) scared might blow a toe off.

Britney Spears? dress up as a school girl for ya hit me vegas one more time.

General drinking and dancing, possible Karaoke I will treat you to some Welsh Rap, Adam Sandler, Weird Al Jankovic, Oasis, Cold play my repertoire knows no embarrassing bounds.

I just need a couple of buddies who wanna do some stuff, I am on a budget so won't be to crazy.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Also I have heard that they pump oxygen into every bar and casino which relinquishes the need for sleep ... oh F***

Just in case any one missed MacApples post on twitter let's get #BuzzCon14 trending
my twitter is @theKittsy and will hopefully being tweeting pics, if my phone doesn't fall out of my pocket at 108 storeys.

Also funny tidbit who will read it all
Told a few people in work I was going to something called BuzzCon. One said is that about bringing the electric chair and capital punishment back to the UK. I'll let them believe that.

On a strict budget myself..but might be up for a few of those.

alternate definition for Buzzcon: Learning the exact way to create cocktails that just get you to that buzzed state, without risk of getting drunk. Beat every possible DUI for the rest of your life. :)

I'm not sure if I can see Kittsy dressed up as Britney Spears. It just wouldn't be right.

Otherwise, let the good times roll :)

We'll be arriving Friday morning. We want to take a flight over the Grand Canyon… otherwise, I'm up for watching anything. Participation optional.

Cheers!

Did I mention how odd I find it that, of all the TV shows that 'could' get over to the UK, 'Pawn Stars' made the cut?

You couldn't get me drunk enough. LOL!

Followed on the Twitters.

I've never seen Pawn Stars but it is popular with a few pals they wanna autograph, we like to set little challenges for each other.

I'd like to do the grand canyon but I don't get a fulld ay in vegas where code camp or buzz con is there, I've heard it's a full day trip.

@MrDavid don't be a wimp (not the smug variety), I bet you sam is up for a bit of free fall. (use partner for pressure lol)

I'm definitely up for visiting the Pawn Stars shop!

Grand Canyon is a full-day trip, so that's probably out. Too bad b/c I've never been.

My plan is to be way more nerd-ish than my previous trips to Vegas. Honestly I'm more excited about being a better programmer at the end of the week, and I would be exactly as excited if Code Camp was in the middle of a corn field in Kansas.

I can empathize, however, with staring out the conference room window at the strip thinking, "Geez I came all this way, I only have one more mile to go, but I have homework!". Put me down for a Cirque show, I'm a big fan of those.

For those of us still there on Sunday, let's plan on doing something on Sunday afternoon that is more of an outing. Is Hoover Dam too boring for you youngsters? I know it is hard to compare seeing Hoover Dam to jumping off a building.

Hey Kittsy,

Count me in for a visit at the Pawn Shop (is on my bucket list). Love that television show and watch it every week!! The rest of your list you can do on your own, hahaha

Best Regards,
Danny

Funny. Not a chance. I did that (jumping out of stuff) in my younger days in the US Marine Corps.
