So Grand Sierra has some pretty nice pool cabanas. They tend to have a post-Burning Man Decompression party, which if you're into thumpy club-kid techno music is ok (but sucks if you want peace and quiet, honestly).
Their normal weekday rates for pool cabanas are $100 for an entire day, as published on their site, and as quoted to me earlier this year when I called to make a reservation (but didn't pay at the time, because the woman was "too busy" to take my payment).
Know what I was just quoted for Thursday post-event? $500/day. Apparently they're jacking up the prices for September 4-6 to grab all the returning Burners.
Fuck those guys. That's just absolutely ridiculous.
Anyway, just FYI that it's usually a popular Burner hangout, but it seems like they're now just trying to cash in on us. I hear the Peppermill is also Burner-Central post-event.
