We need a Vegas 2018 summer AO trip. Was thinking middle of June - end of June timeframe. WSOP. FIFA World Cup (starts June 14). Considering one of these options right now:

1) Wednesday June 13 – Monday June 18
2) Sunday June 17 – Saturday June 23
3) Wednesday June 20 – Monday June 25
4) Sunday June 24 – Saturday June 30
5) Wednesday June 27 – Monday July 2

If any interest, let Cohete know.

That sounds enticing. But the WC games might start A LOT earlier in the morning. Like 4AM or so. Besides those that are up all night, who's waking up at 4AM to see not-Italy play?

Just booked the penthouse at Vdara for Jan 14-16. I need to find a room for the 13th downtown with a kitchenette.

Pretty sure most started 5am-10am vegas times when checked.

Most.
Range I'm getting from wiki is 2AM - 10AM.

There is only one game ("Match #5") starting at 1300 Moscow time, which is 3 hours ahead of London, which is 8 hours ahead of Pacific/Vegas.

Still that is way earlier than my usual Vegas wake-up time. And no Italy. (Where Italy = USA.)
Not dampening it, just saying that would not be a reason for me to go.

Downtown Grand, perhaps?
El Cortez cabana rooms?
You'd have to call to confirm the kitchenette inclusion.

So I might move my trip to group in that prior Thursday. One of the vloggers I watch hosts a game at the Westgate on Thursday nights and it looks fun. Might try a Thursday - Monday trip with 2 nights downtown and 2 on strip. I was looking at coming in Wednesday but that's bumping up against CES and I don't quite feel like paying $1,000 for a basic room on the strip.
