Depends on where and what the events are.

Last year there was a pool party and a party up at the Voodoo Lounge. Both required 21+. AFAIK there were no other events that were locked out by age. However I think that had more to do with the Rio then SOE, as Harrah's properties do not even let people under 21 get a hotel room.

Since it is at the Hilton this year, I'm going to guess that some of the rules may be a bit more lax on some things. They allow 18+ to get rooms there and as long as you don't go to the bars/casino floor, security does not bother you there.

If any of the planners happen to be paying attention to this as well, it may be a good idea if you have an event with drinks, maybe have a wristband that people over 21 wear so that they are easily identified.

Last year they were wristbanding people that were over 21 for the two events that required it. so iam sure they will do it again.

Yea, but you could not even get into those events unless you were 21+ anyways... I was thinking more along the lines of having it open to 18+ but having a way to identify the 21+ people easily without it being able to be "transferred" off of a 21+ to a 20-...

hmm. It might be kind of touchy as I am sure both SOE and Hilton would not want 21+ people passing drinks to the underage.

Yeah it is touchy and risky. Though vegas is one of those towns i have maybe once or twice have been carded. Plus i look very young, so its very odd to me that i rarely if never get carded there. No matter what companys trie to do theres always going to be a very limited amount of underage drinking. No getting around it, Thats why they do the 21 plus events but shrug whatever.
