What's happening in Vegas 5/12-7/12 ?

I am flying over from the UK to San Diego in December and fancy a weekend in Vegas 5/12-8/12. However despite room rates crashing, that weekend is still expensive (compared to other weekends) so I am wondering what is happening?

Thanks.

Say it ain't so, vp03! Cowboys? In Vegas? My next trip is smack dab in the middle of them there dates, pardner. So, tell me they don't really hang around the casinos with their big belt buckles and Stetsons, do they?

I was in Vegas during rodeo last year and I definitely saw me plenty o' ten gallon hats and cowboy boots.

I will say that that the hat and boot wearers were a durn sight more polite, on average, than your typical convention crowd. Mama must o' done raised 'em right.

And unless you want people to think you're asking about the two-month period from May 12 to July 12, write it 12/5 - 12/7.

I think the US is one of a few countries who put the month before the day when typing dates.

But it really makes more sense the other way to go from smaller (day) to bigger (year).

It is best to stay away from places like Sam's Town and the Gold Coast! YEE HAW!!!
