The Imperial Palace is next door and only $88 @ night. You may want to check that out?

From what I have heard it is a DIVE at the Imperial. They said you get what you pay for.

From experience, I can say it's better than hotel 6, best western, comfort inn and the list goes on. I also have to say that their morning breakfast buffet is better than anything here in an 8 county area.

That is why we are staying at Harrahs, Wendi read the reviews for the Imperial Palace and they were very bad. The Harrahs reviews were good and I wanted someplace close so we’ll see you there!

As far as hotels at the convention, I think it all depends on how much time you want to stay at the hotel. For me, all I want is a place to stagger back to and sleep for a few hours. As long as the hotel has a bed and bath room, I am a happy boy.....

The Trail of Terror CT gang will be at Harrah's too. :) It does seem like it's pretty much in the middle of everything and great access to the monorail system.

See you there.

The Stratosphere is only $60 per night (sun- thur) at hotels.com which is oddly better prices then the negotiated convention suggested pricing. It's a nice hotel. A little bit away (3 blocks).

For those of you Driving, I would suggest staying in Marquette on Fri and Sat. The Virgin River is only $79 per night. Yes it’s a 45 min drive, but I’d rather have the extra $400 to spend on props :)

Hi Tony,
since I'm doing costume designs for all major attractions over here in germany
I'm very kean too see what you have to offer at TW. Sounds great. Looking foreward for a long costume talk at the Harrah's cause that's where I'm staying as well.
At least it looks like TW has something to offer.
See you there

The Crown?"
One time a college kid added something to the sign coming into Mount Carroll .
"County Seat' of Carroll County.
Then when the sun came up that morning it said,"Toilet Seat Of Carroll County".
I try to only use the high board when diving and always wear goggles!

We have been working through Globe Trotter Travel and I'm sorry to report that we got the last 5 rooms at Harrahs! Unless Globe Trotter can get them to release more rooms for the show.

The people working the desk at Harrahs said that they have had tons of calls for the Halloween show. Now, to me that sounds positive that the show will be well attended.

Also when booking our booth Pete Benson at Transworld told me the vendors are booking up fast for December. He also told me the show should be well attended.

To all you buyers out there, don't gamble all your cash away. Save some for the cool new Full Body Suits we are bringing to the show. We are bringing a stock of at least 20 suits for cash and carry!

So when my family tells me I have to wear a suit to some of these events, you think these full body suits would be ok? LOL

12-13-2007, 08:22 AM

Mater of fact we are going to give a $100.00 discount if you wear our suit to the Trade Show! Tell your wife you have to do it now. LOL

Kelly Collins and I will be staying at Harrah's!

If you can afford the expense, Cirque Du Soleil's Mystere at Treasure Island is not to be missed!

See you soon~
