Uber is a great way to get around Vegas, including from the airport. Temperatures in May will probably be 89 degrees (31 celsius) and 66 (19) at night. This is a real desert and the dry climate is very real. It'll suck the moisture right out of you even when it's cool out. Bring lotion and drink tons of water!!
Please contact MM if you have organized any other meet-ups!
Fremont Street Hotels:
The Golden Nugget
A popular hotel located in the middle of the Fremont Street Experience, this place is full of old school charm. Even though renovated, you feel history just walking through the place. You can't help feeling relaxed and groovy staying here. This is headquarters for the event. The best wing is the Gold Tower. They said sorry, no clothes in the pool :( The D
A decent and reasonably priced hotel about a block from the Golden Nugget. The pool isn't that great, but the rooms are decent. Four Queens The Plaza
About Fremont Street:
There are two Las Vegases. The newer, glossier one is called "the strip" and it's where you'll find mega-hotels like the Bellagio and Paris. But 15 minutes downtown sits the old original Vegas. The one with the neon cowboy. The one from old James Bond movies. The main scene is on Fremont Street. Nowadays it's been blocked off to traffic, and to compete with the gloss of the new Vegas, they've cranked up the fun! There's a giant overhead screen and bars and casinos and music everywhere. It's where you go to really have fun, not spend a lot, and let loose with 3 blocks worth of other people doing the same thing! It's symbolic that UMD's new hosting center happens to be just one block away.
Meeting each other:
This event is being thrown purely for fun. To keep it that way, we'll show maximum respect for each other, just like we do on this site. Some of us are shy and some are outgoing, but nobody is to be made to feel intimidated. Please be mindful of everyone's space and keep your hands to yourself. Please ask before taking anyone's picture or video. Be mindful that some people may prefer to be called by their screen names, so use that first. No wam events are being officially planned by UMD, and models are not obligated to perform or book sessions. More Vegas Info: Vegas Hotel Guide Vegas Food and Drink Guide
