VIMFP weekend consists of three days of gambling tournaments, dining excursions, live events and a dazzling array of head scratching "only in Vegas" moments. Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic is anchored by The Main Event - live-on-stage performances by brain twisting gaming biz podcast The Vegas Gang, gaming historian Dr. David Schwartz, the original Las Vegas podcasting superstars Five Hundy By Midnight and a take off of 1970's game show "Match Game" featuring the irreverant and unpredictable staff of VegasTripping.com. If that weren't enough, the weekend will be capped off by a live performance of (Secret Guest Artist) as part of the grand opening of the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center. Did we mention booze?
