Funny part was finding out the Toxic Weasel had declared that he just got a great deal for Vegas. He paid $700 for a week, including airfare and hotel. My first reaction was sounds good, but where are you staying? He proudly says the Plaza! Egad!
I thought about it quickly and came to the conclusion that it isn't that great of a deal. For the flight being around $286, that means he is paying about $10/night. For a room that probably goes for $30, he may call that a bargain. But it is the Plaza. He also is renting a car. There goes your savings. When asked why he was renting a car, he said he didn't want to pay up the ass for taxis. That makes sense but where are you taking these cabs to? For that extra cost, you could have slummed on the north end of the Strip. The women I was with quickly quieted me down. They knew it wasn't a great deal either. But let the Toxic Weasel think it is. He can run around downtown playing his penny slots all day.
So with that inspiration I came back up and finished off my December trip plan. I booked the flight and popped the note to move the cash around in the beginning of the week. December won't come quickly enough.
