Thread: Pretty sure I'm going to pass on the Seven Stars signature events this year

  1. #1
    I've done these things every year since becoming a Seven Stars in 2012, but I think this year it's just not worth the effort.

    As far as I can tell, I'm not getting any freeplay for any of these, and the activities don't excite me too much.

    Also, being a "low" Seven Stars, I wasn't invited to as many as the rest of you.

    Last year I almost skipped it, but I decided to go when I could double-dip with another offer.

    This year I don't have any Vegas offers to double dip.

    So F it.

    If you beat them at the machines and you get all the free rooms and other stuff you want from them, that's what's important anyway.

    I'm about to cancel my reservations for this. I recently received free tickets for Celine's return and I'd rather do that as one of my trips. There really isn't anything in the Seven Stars weekend that excites me. And without a free play offer there is even less incentive. When I go for Celine I can also use my $500 annual dining credit.

    I just so happen to have reservations that coincide with the Las Vegas event and my host was able to get me into the whiskey and cigars thing and brunch at Giada's but said the car racing was booked. I was not interested in doing anything else so while it's a nice bonus I don't know that it would be worth making a separate trip for.

    I hope this doesn't hurt you too much. I saw "A New Day" 12 times at Caesars and her second show once before she took her break. I often played craps with her husband at Caesars before he moved his play to Bellagio. And I played with him there.

    For several years I'd get my haircuts at Caesars. By accident I found out the stylist was Celine's personal stylist and was backstage for every show.

    Don't get me wrong. She a great singer. I'm just not interested in her or her music. I'd be bored out of my mind.

    I understand. Either you love her or hate her or it's somewhere in the middle.

    I think I lost half of my Facebook friends when I gushed over Katy Perry.

    I'll never use Facebook or any other social media. But in your line of work, I can understand it's use.

    I can understand that. I am sure you don't want a Facebook page that says how you were booted out of casinos for peeking at dealers' cards at the blackjack table.

    That's not the reason why. People bitch and bitch about privacy and spying and yet these are the same people telling their life story on FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc., you name it.

    You're right. I've seen the inside of 10,000 houses on FB. If I were a burglar I'd know which house to hit and who has a killer Shih-tzu to stop me.
