St. Patrick's Day in Las Vegas!

Do you feel Lucky?

Join your friends of Great Outdoors for a fun St. Patrick's day-weekend in beautiful Las Vegas, March 16th -19th, 2023.

Claude Raffin has once again made his home available as our place to stay - our home base, as we explore and enjoy the sights and sounds of the magical place that never sleeps. This is an 'Urban Slumber Party' staying at Claude’s home, so you don't need your tent but make sure to bring a comfortable pad or air mattress to sleep on as well as your sleeping bag and ear plugs are highly recommended. If you feel more comfortable staying at a hotel, the zip code is 89120 to GPS nearby places.

Itinerary as follows:

Thursday, March 16th Arrive, it's a gated community, Street name: Placita Del Lazo, specific address and gate code will be given once registered.

Meet and greet 4-7 pm for drinks and appetizers

Explore the strip afterward, or board games, or just relax around the house. There is a pool and hot tub.

Make sure you buy tickets for the NEON Museum Tour, we do not recommend the 'brilliant jackpot tour' as it tends to be long and, well, boring.

Tickets sell out fast, so get your ticket as soon as possible, this is early enough, there should be enough tickets to go around!
