Epic days and nights ahead A couple of days of Crazy stuff should happen .



What really a nice group of people so far. Polite, great manners and talkative..

Echoing Mark and G (and I'm not there yet, but have mentally preparing for this weekend), it's a marathon, not a sprint.

My wife and I broke away from the peloton last night for dinner. Went to Giada's (located at the Cromwell) and they seated us overlooking the strip with views of the Bellagio fountains. We opted for the "tasting menu" which was really a 5-course dinner with the optional wine pairings. Highly recommended!!

Subscribed, thanks for letting the TRFers who couldn't make it share this weekend with you! Looks like I have to make it out next year.

Guy sitting next to me on the flight is wearing a 5167 and doesn't want to talk about watches.... I can't wait to see you guys.

I said nice aquanaut, he shrugged his shoulders looked at my watch (didn't comment) and put his headphones in.
