Went solo last October and a will be doing it again in January.
I went because family and friends wouldn't make the commitment. I sat a table with a group of 4 friends (all male), and a woman and her older teenage daughter. We ended up spending our evenings together, mostly in the casino where I met many other very friendly folks! I also enjoyed the fact that I could do what I wanted during the day and not have to worry about others.
We'll see what happens in January, I'm guessing it will be just as fun and just as easy to meet people!
I would tell recommend to anyone who is considering traveling solo to do so!
