Here's a few recommended downtown hotels for you non-locals:

El Cortez: rates are TBD. (The very photogenic Cabana Suites are sold out, but they have great rates typically.  800.634.6703). 
Golden Nugget: rates were $169 (Sat.) / $69 (Sun.) when this was posted. Nice rooms. 
Plaza: Good new restaurants, I hear the rooms are great. Rates were $116 (Sat.) and $58 (Sun.) when this was posted.   


We will be focusing on the Neon signs from the Downtown Gallery which begins on Fremont Street at Las Vegas Blvd. and extends west toward Third Street.

The Photowalk is not limited to these signs.  This list is purely meant as a guide. The organizer of this walk hope to hand-out maps with signs overlaid on it with suggested routes.

Hey everyone. Nate here. I'm sitting in the sun at the Beat Coffeeshop, and I wanted to send this reminder and say THANK YOU for your RSVP and offer a few tips for Sunday night.

First tip - bring a jacket. The weather is... frankly, it's perfect. But you might get chilly later on.

Next - please be safe. Fair warning: Vegas is a fast moving city, and there's lots of diverse people having fun in their own way. Stay in groups if you can and by all means use the traffic walks. Seriously. People get smoked all the time by not paying attention to traffic lights and sidewalks. No joke.

Also, please help out our partner venues. I have spoken to management at both the Beat and the Griffin. They're excited and flattered! Each is ready to welcome us. Be sure to check out the galleries in Emergency Arts building, buy a coffee or a sandwich at the Beat, and tip the cool folks that keep these places groovy.

We're looking forward to celebrating Vintage Vegas with you all. Photo-wise, we'll get some great shadows, tons of classic neon and lots of stuff you won't see anywhere else on the planet.

See you Sunday!

- Nate
