We have an update on The Rio
We have a confirmed date for the September 27-29th weekend.
Here's the deal:
We're going to party in Las Vegas that weekend.
This is as sure as JulieFest2002-DC was gonna happen, and it did.
We haven't signed contracts on the "where," but we're firm on the "when."

right things the right way. But, ... if the sky was to open up and deliver an alternative,
...like maybe Steve Wynn is a big Julie Hiatt Steel fan

JulieFestWest at one of his fabulous mega-casinoes* just so he could meet a woman who,
like Captain Kirk in City on the Edge of Forever, held the balance of history in her hand.
But odds are (that's a Vegas term) the BIG party will be at The Rio..
I believe by the end of today, we'll start selling the actual
Remember, we're not married to The Rio, but by sundown today
we'll be economically married to that weekend.
...and, ...if Steve calls, we're mobile...
Note to Steve Wynn's people:

Rio has waved the "Must-stay-Friday-and-Saturday"
rule, which could save you
$100 on a room Friday night. That's a free ticket to JulieFestWest!
Friday - Visit to Area 51 followed by a tequila orgy at the Hard Rock
Saturday - boating on Lake Mead, lunch with Julie, followed by the Party of the Year
Sunday - It's a ghost town - room prices fall like World.Com stock
