Star Trek, The Experience

One of the main things we wanted to do while in Las Vegas in November was go to the Hilton Hotel and experience "Star Trek, The Experience". Our son is a "Trekkie", and has made a living in the Sci-Fi industry since graduating college. So when I saw this post over at Daily Aviator, I forwarded it to him, knowing for him it was probably old news.
He replied that he knew about the convention, then mentioned something I hadn't heard:
"Star Trek, The Experience" will be closing September 1st.
I'm sorry to hear that. We enjoyed it, and I'll agree with what I heard before going... you'll enjoy it even if you aren't a "Trekkie". If you have any thoughts about going to Las Vegas before 1Sep, be sure and go to the Hilton. Then come here and tell us about it.

When I worked at a downtown Chicago hotel, we hosted about six Star Trek conventions. The ppl running them were first rate, the customers weren't deadbeats, but we didn't do much bar business with them.

I'm wondering if they spent a lot of money in the casino.
