    Affiliate Summit Trekkies
    I've not been to Vegas in a loooong time. I swore that when I went again I'd make it to the Star Trek Experience.

    Even though I'm not sure yet, when I'm going to find time to get there, I thought I'd ask if there are any others that would like to do a little 23rd century networking.

    Also, to those that have been to it or those that live there... how is it and how far from the Rio is the Hilton?

    It's fun! (And I'm not a trekkie) You would need to take a cab to the Hilton, it is not on the strip.

    My wife is a trekkie tried and true. I've been with her to the Star Trek Experience several times, but not since they expanded it a few years ago. I wanted to catch it last year at Summit but just not enough free time to make it over there. If I don't have any big plans on the Wednesday afternoon after Summit, I'd go with you then. PM me and I'll give you my cell phone number.

    As to the experience itself, it is like going through a museum of Star Trek stuf, much of which if from the actual shows and movies. Ther is a virtual ride. And I do recommend the smoking blue martinis in Quarks bar.

    Last time I looked it had become a bit pricey.

    The Buy Tickets page at their web site does not seem to work, but I did find out at the Hilton hotel site there that tickets are now $42.99. I think the last time I went they were under $30.

    Knight...

    For years the souveneer shop sold original stuff from the series and movies, like an original phaser "set to stun" from a certain episode signed by Spock etc... and they were priced at like $500,000

    But dang, rich people, or people who just hit jackpots, little by little scooped them up.

    While it's definately not a tacky gift shop, it's no longer the "museum" gift shop.

    And the restaurant it way cool. Costumed characters wander around while you eat.

    Ron, I'm flying to Florida on Wednesday to do a little fishing before coming home to Ohio.

    I'm thinking Monday or Tuesday evening would work for ST:EXP... trying to avoid any public / semi-public parties.

    What am I supposed to do with this $500k burning a hole in my pocket? Does Quarks have a craps table around there anywhere?

    knight01,

    I have always wanted to go. If you are interested, I would go one of the evenings of the Summit. PM me if you are interested.

    The craps table is downstairs on the main level of the casino. However, on the upper floor where the STE is there are some pretty unique futuristic slot machines. Even the bathrooms are worth seeing. Ha.

    Both of you keep me in the loop, I'd be interested in going over there if I am free. I don't have my meeting/party schedule all firmed up yet.

    I understand, thats why I've been non-committal about a time at this point. I'd like to see what else is happening and when.

    Just looking to see how much / if any interest there is in having a set time for a group outing.

    Melissa, I'll send you an IM once I'm sure of what day and time. Look forward to meeting you.

    Ok, we've got word on the big bash for monday night and many will be attending the SAS party on Sunday night and the buy.at/advertising.com party is on Saturday night. That leaves Tuesday evening open.

    So I'm thinking after the Affiliate Summit R.C. Road Rally I'll head over to the Hilton for the ST:Exp and have a little dinner at Quarks.

    Since Tuesday will be my last night in Las Vegas, I'll probably want to take it a little easy anyway and this seems like a good thing to do.

    Those who have already expressed an interest, I'll pm in with more details as the time gets nearer and there is still plenty time for more to join in!!

    The onion ring tower at Quark's is yummy. I think it comes with 2 or 3 different sauces. If you like Italian, I think the LV Hilton also has Andiamo, which was excellent when we ate there. We won a bundle that day and celebrated there with a wonderful 3 course meal and kahlua coffee afterwards.
