Found on some FB community somewhere and then looked on Creation's Vegas page under Gold Ticket...

Changes to Cocktail/Evening night for Gold Patrons for Vegas:

4) Complimentary admission to our SATURDAY NIGHT EVENTS which now include our new CELEBRITY CABARET where selected guests do what they do best: entertain! Our first cabaret headliner is MISHA COLLINS! You will get to keep the same Gold seat you have during the day for this cabaret event. The Celebrity Cabaret will be followed by The COCKTAIL PARTY! Mix and mingle with fellow fans, selected celebrity guests to meet, a DJ for music and a cash bar to add to the fun! This event is EXCLUSIVE for Gold Weekend Patrons! Celebrity Party Guests to be announced as we get closer (note that celebrity party guests will drop by to say hello)

...and to think, this is the con Bob will be attending with me.  Gold ticket and all.   This may be the first time in YEARS I attend this event again.

Sorry about that last post.  I was just so worn out from this weird-ass last week.   Between technology hating me and my entire right side just plain hating ON me - let's just say it was a challenging week.

Plus I got some triggery stuff going on a work that's underlying everything I think.   Nothing bad.  Actually most would consider it very good; it's just triggering some very bad (bad, bad) stuff from a previous work life.   I'll get over it.

Moving on.

SQUEE!!!   What was I *thinking*!!!???   Grumpy about HAVING to go to a con.   OMG.  Seriously.  I recognize how fortunate I am to be able to go.  And apologize to everyone, including myself, for my stupid pity-party.

What helped?   Well a short time-distance from work helped.  And comments from flisters helped.  :)  

And what started it?   Rewatching this wonderful fanvid that I stumbled across earlier this week.  Some smart person took Jensen's JIB performance and used it as a backdrop for a retrospective of the show and cons.  Love.

And then redteekal helped out by point me to this.  Which, while not SPN (and why hasn't anyone vidded to this yet?  Or have they?), it really hit the spot.

Plus I repaired my Vegas Con 2013 Master Post which was a victim of my Technology Rebellion this past week, when literally half of it just *poof* disappeared.   Makes me feel better to have it back (plus better anyway.)

BTW, there's a pretty good chance I will sign up for Vegas 2014.  While there's also a good chance fickleone might not go (bad time of year for her), my husband LOVES Vegas and is somewhat pouting because he isn't coming this time.   I've waved next year in front of him and he perked up quite a bit.   Plus I think I will do at least one other in 2014.  So I have to pick between Burcon and Vancon.   And I have a feeling I will not be able to resist Burcon (always been my fav; plus likely fickleone).   *headdesk* I guess there's a good chance there might be three 2014 cons in my future.   We'll see.

On the recent email sent out by Creation about the upcoming 2013 Vegas Con:


On side note: I'm grumpy.  I'm not ready to go.  Feeling out of sorts and overworked.  And the growing sense of sheer SIZE of this thing is not helping.   From the various communities I belong to I get a sense that there will be a LOT of first timers.   Which is both awesome and overwhelming.   I'm just grumpy enough that I'm missing the good ole days.  Don't mind me.  Especially if you happen to be one of the newbies, I really have had a crappy week.  Two days ago I was excited as heck about this and even it's size.  I'll get back there after a bit of rest.

Hotel Information

The Rio Suites Hotel
3700 W. Flamingo Rd.
Las Vegas, Nv

IT IS TIME FOR A VACATION! Make your visit to our convention into a full scale holiday in the entertainment capital of the world, LAS VEGAS!

The Rio is great and you can reserve your rooms now at the special lower than normal rates indicated below. You may call the hotel at (888)746-6955, referring to group code SRSUP3.

The Rio hosts more than 2,500 suites, providing spectacular views of Las Vegas. Each suite offers more than 600 square feet of spacious luxury, including a separate dressing area, couch, 32 inch TV, table with chairs, in-suite refrigerator and safe. Offering free shuttle service to the famed Las Vegas Strip, The Rio features an exciting 120,000 square foot casino, four pools and a sensational spa. The Rio's in-residence shows are highlighted by the edgy comedy and magic of Penn & Teller and the world-famous Chippendales.

Nationally recognized for culinary excellence the hotel boasts 15 award-winning dining experiences sure to entice your taste buds. You'll enjoy international inspirations from the Mediterranean, Latin America and Asia, along with all-American favorites. VooDoo Steak & Lounge and Martorano's garner rave reviews while the Carnival World Buffet is continuously recognized as the best buffet in Vegas (with 300 dishes made daily and a new contemporary design).

The hotel offers over 60,000 square feet of shopping pleasure and the ongoing carnival atmosphere of the free Masquerade Show in the Sky. After the convention is over more fun awaits as The Rio is pumped for entertainment choices including i-Bar, the most cutting-edge ultralounge experience in the world. i-Bar is proud to host the exclusive debut of Microsoft Surface, a unique tabletop computing device with a 30-inch touch-responsive screen.

Room prices are a "sweet" deal too, especially if you reserve early before our special lower than normal priced room block is filled. Our annual giant STAR TREK VEGAS CONVENTION is held at The Rio and attendees LOVE the hotel as you will!

Creation Entertainment holds a "block" of rooms for our attendees. These blocks of rooms have a lower rate than standard rates at the hotel, but they also have a "cut-off" point after which hotels may choose to revert back to their own higher rates for our customers. Usually this cut off date is one month prior to the event, but this does vary. Therefore it is always wise to book your rooms for our conventions as early as possible.
