That's awesome man. You will have a great time. I highly recommend finding the booth that takes your picture during the tourney. Then you can buy the pic later on. It makes for a very nice momento.
I also recommend getting breakfast in the cafe in the hallway leading to the Amazon Room in the Rio. I think it's called the San Paulo or Sao Paulo Cafe. Either way, they have a decent enough breakfast there, and you will want a full stomach before playing.
Also, during your breaks, make sure you take a break. While it's exciting to call family and friends about your progress, I found it ate up my entire break. By the time the dinner break was rolling around I was tuckered out and hardly played a hand that final half hour. If you feel you need to call to give progress, just pick one person and have them farm out the info to your other friends.
Good luck and have a blast!
