Let me start by saying that I do not love Las Vegas, as many do. Gee, really selling it, right? Having said that, I’ve slowly come to see the magic that comes with having some of the best food in the world all on a one mile strip — with incredible weather and pools to boot!

My slow growing fondness is a result of my dear friend TravelZork, and actually also Pizza in Motion too, both of whom know how to make this city come alive, or at least how to make my infinite quest for all things delicious come alive!

This year, with the US open once again and the joy of face to face meetings and toasting the good times coming back into fashion, TravelZork is bringing its famous ZorkFest Fest, which combines fun, learning and interaction with great minds in travel and also all things Las Vegas, from how to score incredible comps to much more.

I’ll be a featured speaker on the travel front, with a couple sessions aimed at making everyone in the room as knowledgeable about flight deals and points as I am.

That’s highly unlikely to happen, but you should learn A LOT nonetheless! Be sure to check out the extensive schedule of sessions on the TravelZork/ZorkFest website.

Anyway, early bird tickets have technically come and gone, but for a brief period, ZorkFest is allowing me to sell early bird tickets for the weekend of fun. The promo code gstp88 will also take $50 off any ticket package purchased, which brings tickets down to $199 for the sessions and all the extras.


Here’s how ZorkFest describes the weekend…

Come hang with like-minded people from all over for an epic weekend in Vegas.

  1. Sounds like a blast. I’d pony up now but my niece is graduating college and she might not understand. I’m not sure how I missed it but hope you do it again, particularly if it’s in downtown Vegas.
