After Party - Donaldaz - 11-24-2012 12:56 PM

Ok peeps - Calissa wants to party and needs a place to go, get drunky, and kiss girls. Anyone know of a place mid-Strip? Come on locals - you know where we can go. Speak up or I'll have to spend my saturday night wandering around casino's looking for a place. Hey - that doesn't sound like such a bad idea!

I think Natalie said on facebook that we are coming over , i'm doing the full, so here's confirming her facebooking. There will be 3 of us for the luxor buffet, i assume we just turn up for that then ?

The Casino Royale casino bar has cheap beer specials according to its web site and it is located right near the finish line. Then there is Bill's Gambling Hall which is located right at one of the runner exit spots. I think I saw they had cheap drinks too.

Of course it does!
RE: After Party - Randy - 12-01-2012 12:20 PM

After walking to Expo today I'd say Bill's might work, but Casino Royale will be a nightmare to get to. That side of the strip is always a crush of people, Sunday night it will be as dangerous as MB was last year.


RE: After Party - Slowpole - 12-02-2012 03:17 AM

I checked out several places yesterday - Bill's has a lounge area that may work but there will be kareoke going on so it may be a bit loud. But it is very convenient. Casino Royale would not work because there is no place to sit and talk. If people want to eat, perhaps Margaritaville might be our best bet. It's pretty convenient, we can sit, talk, eat and drink. Drinks are a little more than I what I was hoping for - $5.50 for domestics, 6.50 for imports. They do have Landshark for a around $5 as a special. Might be a little loud too but tolerable and I believe it is non smoking which is nice. We can finalize tonight at dinner. Maybe someone discovered the perfect spot or will today.


RE: After Party - PinkChick - 12-04-2012 07:59 AM

Margaritaville was a great location but unfortunately neither my friend or I had the energy to walk further then the ice machine after the race. Oh yeah the ice was not for our drinks it was for our knees. I did mine in yet again after walking up the strip once the half had started. I tripped on something..

Hope everyone had a great time in the race. The start seemed a bit better but as I walked past the finish it looked like there may still be some things that need to be worked out.

For me I got stuck on the side opposite the Flamingo and trying to get where I needed to go was confusing and like trying to walk through a mosh pit at a rock concert. Not a good thing when you have to "p".


RE: After Party - Randy - 12-04-2012 08:17 PM

I missed it too, I actually got to Margville but couldn't find our group. I wondered around but it smelled like food and it was hot so I left.


RE: After Party - Tony. - 12-05-2012 03:22 AM

Sorry to say I never made the party either , after getting stomach cramps from 12 miles ,then retching at 18 ( walked mostly from there) at 24 I was ready to sleep at the bus stop outside the stratosphere but threw up instead. I managed to finish but needed to sleep.


RE: After Party - Daniel M - 12-05-2012 04:18 AM

The night format has essentially killed the after party.

We waited outside for nearly an hour so I wonder how we missed you Randy. Sorry we didn't see you.

Next year we need a new spot - somewhere they can sit you immediately and allow people to come and go anytime - not a restaurant. Also some place a little quieter. Need local LV people to scope it earlier next year once the course is determined. If it ends at the end same place, perhaps something on the west side of the strip would have a suitable lounge area.

Agree Daniel that the afternoon/evening time slot does hurt the after glow party.
RE: After Party - Slowpole - 12-05-2012 09:49 AM

So how did you do Randy?


RE: After Party - Randy - 12-05-2012 10:39 AM

If you waited an hour I should have been there a little after that. I was helping a fallen runner in the finish area, the one part I can complain about is that towards the end the finish area was overrun with people. The woman I was standing next to passed out shortly after emptying her stomach on my feet, I shouldn't have asked her if she was ok. Most of the people there were more use posting pictures to FB than assisting a sick person, and the crowd slowed the medical help considerably.

After I got my stuff I went into the Bellagio to clean up so it was probably much later, I finished right before 5 hours clock time, so maybe almost 9 before I got to Mville. I couldn't have stayed in there anyway, I don't eat food for hours after a race and couldn't have handled the smell. Probably didn't smell all that good myself!

Leon, just looked it up, 4:52, on page 3-4 of our age group results.


RE: After Party - pa. plodder - 12-06-2012 08:34 AM

I enjoyed getting together with everyone at Margaritaville after the race, but I apologize for pooping out so early. I guess I need more recovery time, including a nice shower, before I head out to eat & drink. I'm still in Vegas and looking around for possible after-race party places. There has to be lots of places that would accomodate a large group and we could come and go as we please.
Anyway, I had a great time this year, and am impressed with the job the race organizers did to eliminate the problems of last year. Calissa's cursing would have been reduced to a minimum! The race is still too expensive and too big for my utmost enjoyment, but I will return to see my LVM21 friends. I will monitor the board to see if there are any races throughout the year that a bunch of members will enter, Perhaps I will see you there.


RE: After Party - AlanD - 12-06-2012 04:31 PM

It was nice to visit with those that made it to the after party but I agree that we need to find a better place to have it. Definitely need a lounge type area to sit and come and go as everyone wants.


RE: After Party - central texas runner - 12-09-2012 03:21 AM

Sorry I didn't get to run with you John!! After reading your post, I'm sure you're 2nd experience of running with me would have been much more enjoyable!! Until next year my friend....Hugs to you.


RE: After Party - rkmjtk - 12-22-2012 06:54 AM

Next year there needs to be a real after party......and on my last trip there I found the perfect spot!!! Believe me....if we hold the party there...it will be EPIC my friends! :banana:

That's a whole different kind of different party there!

I will wait till the time creeps closer and let you guys know! But it has cheap drinks and entertainment! These are the only clues I will say.
