Sister Act night

If you're like me and haven't bought your nun costume yet, a way to make it cheaper is to use a graduation gown (if you already have one lying around). Instead of buying the entire outfit, you can either make or buy a collar and headpiece. The collar and headpiece can be found for less than $10 on eBay. Or you could always go the "sexy nun" route, which apparently is more common than I thought. Seriously, type in "nun costume" on eBay and marvel at the selection of slutty nun costumes.

Brewery tour?

Apparently, there's a brewery at the end of Fremont Street (other than the one at our hotel) that offers free tours.

Since there will be a few of us waiting around for later arrivals on Friday, is anyone interested? This will serve as a test to see who reads the blog, haha.

Main Street Station pool info

The pool is located at the California (there's a skyway that crosses the street, so we don't need to leave to access the pool). I've read some reviews and it seems to be a no-frills rooftop pool, but you're allowed to bring a cooler as long as it's not filled with glass bottles. There is pool furniture that is first come, first served, and there are no cabanas.

If I recall correctly, we had a perfectly awesome time at the Binion's rooftop pool where we brought out a cooler of Bud Light, so this sounds OK for our group. Plus, we'll save a ton on drinks and won't have to sneak them like we did last year.

Bay Area STBE Committee is flying in early

Well, at least some of us are. Last year, we flew in on Thursday night and Ryan had arranged a limo for us. Then Mike was waiting at the airport with champagne!

This could turn into a classy affair, so if you want to join us, we'll be arriving in Vegas at 10:30pm the night before the official festivities begin.

Oh, and Ryan's not allowed near the Denny's. It's in writing now.

hotel discounts

I booked Thurs-Mon at Main Street Station (a group of us is flying in early to save on flights and avoid Friday traveling crowds), and after taxes it was less than $45 a night.

Search around to see if you have your slot card (we signed up for them to save money on the Fremont buffet) - it's called B Connected. If you find it, you can set up an online profile with it and book rooms at a discount. It was an $11 discount on Thurs/Sun and a $15 discount on the two weekend nights. Prices were good for a deluxe room, one king or two queens.

If you can't find it, I imagine you can call the hotel and ask them to look up your account. Once you have your account number, you can set it up (or if you're already on the phone, you can probably just book there). Best part? You only have to put down a deposit for the first night.

STBE 15 dates are set!!!

The FIFTEENTH Annual Sugar Twins Birthday Extravaganza will be Friday, August 14, 2015 - Monday, August 17, 2015 at Main Street Station in Downtown Las Vegas!!!

I'll try to update the blog regularly!

Cheap drinks in Reno...

Looking up a few specials before we hit town.

  • Cal-Neva - $1.50 16oz cans of Bud/Bud Light (website says you need the slot card for the deal) - actually, the website says $1, but when directed to the Facebook page, inflation has hit the Cal-Neva
  • The Brew Brothers -  Mon-Fri $2 All microbrews, $2.50 Wells, 2 for 1 Pizzas,  2pm- 5pm
  • Sands Hotel and Casino - $1.50 Domestic Beer in Bottles and well drinks 24/7
I'll pretend people still read this blog and ask you to send in tips for other drink specials or  cheap/free Reno activities.
