OK - here is the deal. I want to go to Vegas again. BAD. My brother and his wife are going in July. Actually she is the only one that is certain to go because she is going for a conference. My brother asked me and my husband to go. He will NOT go because "July is too hot". He said we'd go this winter.
Problem is my husband is not committed on the dates. He said he'd probably go to Old School but he just won't commit on the airfare because in his opinion, now that we have table games 45 minutes away, he doesn't need to fly 4.5 hours to play blackjack or poker. I on the other hand can drive 10-15 minutes and play machines. It is NOT the same as Vegas. I guess being a working wife and mom need the time away to recharge. It is more than machines or gambling. It is the entire package that Vegas has to offer (spas, shows, pool time, adult time, me time). I know that sounds incredibly selfish, but I hope you guys get what I mean. A 15 minute ride to a slot parlor or 45 minute drive to a mini-casino just doesn't get my fix. Honestly, I am to the point that I don't care if I go to the local places. I'd rather save it for Vegas.
Back to the issue at hand. I can still go to Vegas without him. I was just there in April but I got some offers that are just too good to pass up. I can stay 2 nights free at Caesars in a Forum Tower room Friday and Saturday night and I got the "bring a friend offer" from Paris and can stay there up to 2 nights free and the 2nd room is free there as well plus two bottles of champagne. We don't need the 2nd room until Sunday so this works out perfect. This is 4 nights free in Vegas, over a weekend. Yes, I am a gold card holder. I don't know how I got these offers and comps at my level of play!!! I guess because summers are slow and maybe the economy?
I just booked the rooms so I know that I am not dreaming. If this works out I'll be there NEXT MONTH - late on Friday July 18th! I have up to 72 hours to cancel prior to the trip. I just need to convince him before I book the airfare. I want to fly out on USAirways on Friday night and that ticket would not be refundable. I plan to return on SW so booking that when I see a cheap fare is really not a problem.
Any suggestions on how to convince him this is a great deal, too good to pass up, and I need to go?
BTW - I know complete strangers can not make me convince my husband, I just want to see if any of you have ideas that I haven't thought of! :)
