What To Do In Las Vegas Instead Of Going To Amway WWDB Spring Leadership
Amway World Wide Dream Builders is holding WWDB Spring Leadership in Las Vegas, Nevada April 12 – 14, 2013 at the Orleans Arena.
So that means another one of my posts where I find things to do in town instead of attending Spring Leadership. Actually sitting in your hotel room watching TV would be more productive than attending the Spring Leadership brainwashing session but Las Vegas is a town devoted to entertaining its visitors so there are no shortage of things to do in this city that never sleeps. The thing that everyone associates Las Vegas with is gambling. Some people who’ve never been don’t realize there are other things to do. A foreign concept to Amway IBO’s who probably think there is nothing else to do in this town except attend an Amway function called Spring Leadership. When you’re an ambot in love with Amway all you can say is - “what else is there”.
I’d say you got more chance of making money in a Las Vegas casino that at an Amway function. So start off there.
If you’re on a budget Las Vegas has a bunch of free and low cost entertainment that are way better than attending a shitty Amway function like WWDB Spring Leadership 2013.
Long gone are the days in Las Vegas when casinos were trying to lure in gamblers with all you can eat buffets under $10. These days the hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard have increased the quality and selection of the food at their buffets and likewise the price has jumped up. Dinner at an all you can eat will cost around $20, more if you eat somewhere like at the Bellagio. Non-buffet restaurants in the hotel/casinos run what you’d pay for a medium priced meal anywhere else in the country - $10 to $20 entrees, most meals OK but not usually worth the money. The best bang for your buck is to head downtown to the older hotels/casinos in the Fremont Street Experience. Here you will find all you can eat buffets under $10 - barely. You might still find one of those infamous shrimp cocktails for a buck or two. If you weigh over 350 pounds you can eat for free at the Heart Attack Grill.
Nightlife - Las Vegas has no shortage of options. Most hotels give you a coupon book when you check in and you might be lucky to find a 2 for 1 coupon at a show you might actually like to see. Unfortunately you will not see the twofers to Celine Dion or Elton John. Not even Donny and Marie! All these acts cost over $100 per person. There is several booths on the street called Half Price Tickets or maybe its Half Price Shows I don’t remember exactly which its called and you can ask them what prices they have for some acts. Usually the good shows you want to see are not half price but they have a small discount. Don’t confuse them with the time share salespeople who are as bad as Amway salesmen and are lurking inside hotels and on the sidewalk wanting to give you free tickets and free meals. Yeah if you don’t mind sitting through a 3 hour high pressured sales presentation for a time share condo. Some people don’t mind don’t mind doing that for the freebies! And at least they give you freebies for sitting through their sales pitch. Amway ambots don’t give you piss all.
Should be interesting having a flock of Amway salespeople in town looking for new recruits and the only people who want to talk to them are time share salespeople. Who’s going to win that round?
The Treasure Island Hotel has a pirate ship show. I hate to give out wrong times but I think the first show is at 7pm and it goes every hour and a half until around 11pm. The times are posted on the sidewalk near the show area. Get there ahead of time because this place gets PACKED with people crowded all over the sidewalks and viewing areas. Next door at the Mirage is a volcano that erupts starting (I think) at 7pm and every hour until midnight. The Bellagio Hotel has a fountain and light and music show that starts sometime in the afternoon and goes until midnight every 15 minutes a new musical selection.
Fremont Street Experience is downtown Las Vegas where some old hotels like the Golden Nugget, 4 Queens, and Fitzgeralds are located and have cheaper prices than hotels on the Strip. The area was closed off to cars years ago. There is often some kind of musical act playing on a stage that doesn’t cost anything to watch. At night there is a light show on the domed roof with a musical accompaniment that you can’t hear because of the disco sound system blasting out of all the casinos on Fremont. If you’re not afraid of heights there is a zip line that takes you from one end to partly down Fremont Street, maybe a block or so ride, costs around $10 or $15.
Want to see the Hoover Dam or Grand Canyon? Either rent a car or there are a bunch of bus tours that take you and will pick up/drop off at your hotel. Starts around $30 depends what you’re doing and if you choose a tour that includes other attractions like Liberace’s museum or a buffet lunch somewhere.
Like going on amusement park rides? Some of the hotels have them or a few of them. Prices vary from one ride to an all day pass. $20 or $30 maybe less. Still way under what it costs to get your brain cells sucked out at Amway WWDB Spring Leadership. Check out Circus Circus, New York New York, and the Stratosphere for thrill rides.
So there you have it. Lots of things to do in Las Vegas either for free or on the cheap that won’t cost you as much as it does to go to WWDB Amway Spring Leadership 2013. Not to mention lots more fun! This is a town built for fun! Don’t wreck it by going to a fucking stupid Amway convention!
And to make sure I draw in a few more with key words here’s the list of the other spots Amway is holding their brainwashing sessions:
Spokane, Washington April 19 – 21, 2013 at the Spokane Arena
Honolulu, Hawaii April 21 – 22, 2013 at The Modern.
Washington, DC April 27 – 28, 2013 at the Hyatt Dulles
Denver, Colorado, April 27 – 28, 20013 at the Denver Merchandise Mart Plaza
Calgary, Alberta May 3 – 5, 2013 at the Calgary Stampede Corral
Minneapolis, Minnesota May 4 – 5, 2013 at the Minneapolis Convention Center
And a couple more key words because there are a bunch of dumb ass Amway ambots that think they have the power to turn back time and put this into their Google searches: Amway WWDB Spring Leadership 2012! And one more for the Amway asshole who is thinking ahead to next year! Yeah I shit you not! Amway WWDB Spring Leadership 2014. Yup ambots are so fucking brainwashed by their Amway cult leaders they have no clue what year it is!
And let me sign off as I usually do with one of these posts!
Amway WWDB Spring Leadership sucks!
All Amway functions suck!
