    Since you responded I was looking for an article I read a year or so ago about travel and bookings as it spoke to it. There was a study done on occupancy of hotel rooms, VRBO, Airbnb, etc around major events.

    Days prior there was a steady increase in occupancy starting from 3 days prior and obviously spiked the night before and night of said event.   The dropoff the day after the event was like an anvil off a cliff aimed at the roadrunner.  It was believed that is how most people fray the cost of a trip.   The article was suggesting for those who do have VRBO/airbnb, etc to offer a significant decrease in the price the night after big events that bring a lot of people into town.  I showed it to my buddy who has about a dozen different places and he pretty much agreed that is the bookings go and he has sig lowered his prices and has had a little bit more success than before.

    In thinking of my bookings where the destination was a concert, game, or some sort of one day event I found myself doing the same thing.   Arrive a day or two early, attend and then pop smoke that next day.  

    Fair enough.  I mean, I'm sure the numbers actually back it out, and I'm sure they pay people to crunch those numbers, so as much as I was griping about the time as well, they're much better equipped to figure out when they should have the games than I am.

    I hate it when my wife and son are arguing and she is dead wrong but I don't want her to turn on me so I have to throw the boy under the bus.

    How about the old “You never help me in disciplining our kids; I am always the bad one”.    :)
