The Econo Lodge is one block off the strip at the corner where the main Casinos are Bally's, Bellagio, Caesars Palace and the Flamingo.  You can catch the tram at Bally's and go down to the MGM Grand / Tropicana / Excalibur & Luxor / New York-New York & Monte Carlo.  You can then catch the tram at the Monte Carlo and go up to the Bellagio.   



 Ticket Details 


    Tickets to the Art of the Motorcycle can be purchased at the door on an as available basis for $15.  Entry to the museum is limited to a maximum number of people at any particular time.  How busy can it be in January?

On the other hand, if you want to be certain of getting in, & you want to save a couple of bucks, you can be part of the SoCal VRCC Group Ticket Purchase.  The Group Purchase ticket price is $12.

The good thing is, you know you'll be getting in and you'll save a couple of bucks.  The bad thing is, you are committed.  Once You submit the form, we purchase the ticket.  We can't get our money back, and you're on the hook for $12 whether you go or not. 

If you want to be part of the SoCal VRCC group ticket purchase,
Sign Up At The Bottom Of The Page
The Group Ticket Purchase Closes at 4pm on 1/11/02

Then, be at the Econo Lodge at 2:25pm and we will leave for the Venetian together .  We won't leave the Econo Lodge any sooner than that, and we won't leave much later than 2:35pm.



 Saturday Dinner Details 


Want to have so much Italian food for dinner that You Will Explode?  A group of us are eating at Buca di Beppo at 7:30.


Eighteen of the Riders who sign up for Dinner will be dining together at the Pope's Table, with the biggest Lazy Susan you have ever seen.  (This outta make the check a nightmare.)  The rest will be seated in one of the Restaurants many other equally interesting rooms.


To sign up for "Eat Till You Explode",  Fill Out The Form Below .
Now there are plenty of more expensive Restaurants in Las Vegas, and a few less expensive ones.  You can eat where ever you want - BUT - If you leave Buca di Beppo hungry (the signature Di Beppo "1893" salad, laden with imported mortadella, pepperoni, and pepperoncini - has yet to be consumed in one sitting), its your own damn fault!  I'm making reservations based on whatever you tell me, so if you change your mind, let me know (you'd think we'd have learned from Bakersfield, but we're gluttons for punishment, and apparently none to bright).
