We are in Vegas to see Rob and Stocks play tomorrow at the MGM Grand Arena.

We got a package with Southwest that included 2 roundtrips from Spokane and 2 nights lodging at the Desert Rose Resort neat the MGM Grand for about $1001. Taxi from the airport was about $12. We have a one bedroom apartment which is very nice, and with the sofa bed etc. it looks like it would sleep 5 0r 6. They also have two bedroom apartments. There is a complete kitchen with all the pans, dishes, blender, coffee ###, microwave, etc. Even a dishwasher. I am sure it would be more with more folks, but as a part of a flight package it would be reasonable for a group for the WCC Tourney. There is a pool and hot tub.

There are even 2 TV's--one in the bedroom and one in the living room, and free internet for up to four devices.

We ate at Crush at MGM Grand--a tapas type restaurant, and it was very reasonable since we both have small appetites and ordered only 2 plates--skirt steak and lobster ### pie. They were delicious.

There are no restaurants at the Desert Rose, but Hooters, Tropicana, and MGM are all within walking distance.
