Becky's Bender: Viva Las Vegas baby!Welcome to the June 18th edition of Becky’s Bender, all of which I have decided to dedicate to Vegas, baby. As the Head On-Site Reporter and International Socialite for, it is not my job to know gambling, but it is my job to know parties…so lets focus on parties that are taking place in Vegas this summer because there are quite a few to keep track of. We’ve got everything from industry forum parties to WSOP parties, igaming poker site parties, BBQ’s, extreme sports gatherings, strip bar excursions, poker tourneys, pool parties, and much, much more. No matter where in the world you reside, have a look at some flights because a few nights in Vegas this summer could be worth your while…

June 25-27:Poker Affiliate Listings Meet Up
If you’re an affiliate and need a break from your goddamn computer, take a break and join PAL in Vegas June 25-27 for an informal weekend of hookahs, sky diving, clubbing, cabanas, dinners, strip bars, and poker. Mandalay Bay will serve as the central meeting point, so try and stay there or near there if you can- I love Mandalay, it’s a great spot and you cannot go wrong booking a room at this resort. If you want a look at the schedule, a tentative itinerary has been released at PAL, but I warn you it is “subject to change” depending on what type of trouble everyone (Jeremy) gets into.

There are a LOT of parties going on during the WSOP, especially during 4th of July weekend and the Main Event. I will go ahead and list what I know of so far, but some are invite only, so I would advise against just showing up unless you’ve got the green light or your media like me, K?
