Has anyone been to the Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas?
I’m going to Vegas in a couple weeks with some friends (been there a few times before) but we’re staying at Mandalay Bay, so getting into Rehab at the Hard Rock is apparently a real chore. I’ve never been before but I hear it’s a blast.
For people who are not staying at the Hard Rock, the official protocol is to wait on line (the party opens at 11:00 am but they suggest you get on line 90 minutes beforehand) to get a wristband, but even then you’re not guaranteed to get in, especially if you’re 3 dudes (like us).
So I called up a couple of “Vegas VIP” services (you can find tons of them online) which specialize in getting you on the VIP lists at clubs and such, for a fee. To get on the VIP list at a normal club like Body English or Tryst they want $75-100 a head, which isn’t too crazy, seeing that (as 3 males) we’d probably have to tip the door guy that much to get in anyway. But Rehab is apparently THE hottest party in Vegas right now, and the VIP services want $200 a head to get on the list (!).
Does anyone know of a better way, or of someone who can do it for less? I’m contemplated just sucking it up and paying the $200 but I’m not sure if my buddies will go for it. If you have any other ideas I’d love to hear them.
