jimmy buffet in October

Anyone going?

We are staying at westgate, planet hollywood. He is playing at MGM.

Is it a reasonable walk, or should we take a cab or bus?

It's probably a 15 minute walk. Only you can decide if that's reasonable or not. There are no convenient buses for that route. The monorail is another option, but you would have to walk to the monorail station at Bally's (almost as far as MGM Grand), and then pay $5 each to get to MGM Grand. You're staying at a place that will involve some walking, no matter where you want to go.

One option would be to go to the pre concert party (next to Flamingo) in the afternoon and then catch the monorail at Flamingo to MGM Grand.

The monorail is a good option. It is so busy around the MGM after a concert that it's almost impossible to get a cab. You should be able to get one to the concert from your hotel. It's getting away from the MGM after the concert that can be a little bit of a challenge. You can't even go eat at MGM unless you have a reservation. Everything will be full. You'll have to wait a couple of hours to get a cab. It might be faster, but it will be quite a while. It won't be incredibly far to walk from the monorail station at Ballys. You'd have to leave the concert right away and get right on the monorail before it gets too busy. We've done that, and it seems to us to be about the best way to get away from MGM after a big concert. Even if you can't get real close to your hotel, you can get a cab from a hotel that's away from the MGM.
