Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic : The Details #VIMFP

VegasTripping in conjunction with The Admiral and the Vegas Gang are proud to finally announce some of what we've got planned for the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic which will take place on Saturday October 22, 2011 at 3pm!

This year we are happy to announce that Planet Hollywood will be hosting the event inside The Mezz, the former London Club high limit room, directly adjacent to the PH Diamond Lounge and the Gallery nightclub entrance on the second floor. We'll post maps and stuff as the date nears.

Drunkards will be happy to know that the bar up there will be fully stocked and operational throughout the event and during the fabulous reception that will follow the festivities.

We're super excited to have an extended live podcast by the Vegas Gang (guest TBA) wherein the guys will hold yet another unsuspecting casino executive's feetsies to the fire. Regular Vegas Gang listeners should also expect further engagement in boiler-plate-heated imbroglio over the issues of the day, or at the very least measuring relative merits of casino parking garages.

We all know that Dr. Dave Schwartz - head of the UNLV Department of Gaming Studies and the media's go to guy for quotes and background - will be the smartest guy in the room at the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic. Or is he? At this first annual VIMFP, we're giving YOU the chance to Stump Dr. Dave for cash and/or prizes supplied by the fine folks at Caesars Entertainment. Subjects include: the history of gambling, Vegas & Atlantic City casino history, bop and post-bop jazz, Star Trek, RUSH and children's television programs. Do you have what it takes to STUMP DR. DAVE?

Roll out the orange shag carpeting and fire up the Howard Cosell jokes, it's time for Match Game VT, the VegasTripping version of the 1970s TV gameshow where two audience contestants try to match the VT staff - Mike, John, Blackjacker1979 and Misnomer - with the winner taking home a fabulous prize package! "Dumb Donald was so dumb... (how dumb is he?) when he visited Las Vegas, instead of putting cash in a slot machine, he put in a _______________."

As if that weren't enough, we're going to have an open discussion with all the VT posse & Vegas Gangsters which will include some Q&A from the peanut gallery. The whole event will be wrapped up with a fabulous reception catered by our great hosts at Planet Hollywood. Did we forget to mention that this whole thing is free?

In addition to all this stuff we will be scheduling some drink ups and maybe an organized run at a craps table or a full scale takeover of the Planet Hollywood casino floor at one point.

The fine folks at Caesars will also be providing some coupon codes for below market room rates at Paris, Ballys and Planet Hollywood which come with the good old Total Rewards funbooks that are jam packed with discounts and freebies. We are also negotiating some Total Rewards points multipliers just like we had at last years VPP.

We truly can't wait to get all of our tourist and local Vegas friends together for an afternoon of libation and hilarity giving praise to and making fun of the city we all love so much... CityCenter Las Vegas!

All the details, including links to coupon codes and whatnot, will be posted at VegasInternetMafia.com.


Comments & Discussion:

Is there a bonus if I show up with Nipsy Russell?

Besides being at a party with Nipsy Russell?


Now see if you can get Rip Taylor......

I'm happy it will be at a CET property. More importantly, I've stayed at every CET property except PH so I'm looking forward to a new place. I just booked a Hollywood Hip Strip View room.

@Halton - excellent. See you there.

As far as 'Stump' goes, I think we're going to need an independent arbiter of what questions are fair and which are just ridiculous.

This is so awesome! I booked my room a couple weeks ago at PH Towers and no idea that the event would take place at P-Ho! Too perfect!

Really looking forward to finally meeting all of ya guys!

BTW, who's gonna be Charles Nelson Riley?

I said "whoopie!"

@Robbie no idea, but I vote MikeE to wear the Fannie Flagg sweater.

I will be landing the Thursday before but havent booked my hotel yet. PH is where I have stayed before so I will try there again. 3pm is the perfect time.

I can't stand it that I cannot be there. This sounds like a lot of fun. Also, it would be great to meet those who host and post on VT. Everybody have fun!

will be working should hopefully make part of the evening, saturdays during FB season is quite busy in the sports book

*fap fap fap*

I'm gonna miss this by a week, but I'll stop by at PH next week to see if its still standing after you guys run havoc there...
Have fun and gooood luck !
