Join the Tiki and Vegas History Touring Bus on Friday Night, April 18th.

Hey, if you're gonna pay for a Friday night hotel room - then get your money's worth and take off Friday morning and enjoy the whole day and night in town! You'll miss the Friday night traffic AND be able to take this fun Las Vegas Neon, Rat Pack History, Mid Century Architecture, and of course, Tiki Tour!

Tour will leave from the Hard Rock Hotel and end at Taboo Cove at the Venetian.
Time Schedule is We MUST leave promptly at 6PM in order to make it in time for cocktails at Taboo Cove by 9:30 PM (so we don't pay cover)

Highlights will include:
The Infamous Giant Aku Aku Moai
1950s and 60s Boulder Highway Googie motels
Neon Sign Museum at Fremont Street
1955 National Register Moulin Rouge
Narrated History of Vegas and the Strip
plus plenty more surprises!

I think that $20 a head will cover my costs for the bus. If you want to join, just post it here... or you can send friends here:

FuturaGirl~
Has a bus been booked yet?
Also, when arriving at the Taboo Cove, do you know if they will be putting up a cover charge at all since it will be a very busy weekend? Will they be expecting a busload of people or are we just crashing the place? Leaving at 6pm for the tour, and ending with drinks; sounds like we need to pile up on the food before we leave!

No, i haven't booked a bus yet, just shopped around and have found a good company that seems flexible if we need to change bus sizes. Busses are a bit pricey in vegas...

I just talked to 'tobota????' at Venus and he says if we get there before 10:pm we can all get in for free. Also, if folks don't make the bus tour - we can rendesvous there later (as previously suggested on another post). i will re-confirm on the free cover as the night gets closer.

Yup, I suggest people eat heavily before, or even better still get some pizza or other picnic box lunch take out and eat on the bus - cause there are 'dead' zones between cool stuff to look at...

Cool Bax - see you there...
I am doing research as you read this!
There will probably be 2-3 stops along the way...
1) quick sunset photo op at the Moai
2) walking tour of Neonopolis/Neon Sign Museum/Fremont Street and 3) Drinks at The Peppermill
I'd like to make a few more stops - but not sure we can get everyone on and off the bus fast enough? we don't want to get to Taboo Cove late and have to pay a cover charge...

By the way - who is gonna jump over the bar and thrust in a Arthur Lyman CD on the player? Or maybe if we all just start chanting "Martin Denny" over and over again till it drives the bartenders crazy?

I hope they stick to that, since Vegas tends to raise prices on just about everything when it's a high occupancy weekend. For example, the bar over at New York New York that has the dualing pianos didn't use to charge any cover, then a holiday weekend came, and BAM, up went a cover charge! Again, I hope they stick to that "no cover until 10" policy.
