Weekend Update

  1. Glad to hear you had a good time. I personally hate Vegas but I’ve only ever been there for work conferences and never gone to any shows so maybe I’m selling it short.

    How was the Leno show?

  2. Lynn: How ’bout half a prize, since you were half right: we didn’t get married there (though the temptation to post a suggestive picture of us outside a wedding chapel was high). Of course, the “prize” would just be the satisfaction of knowing you were right – so you may as well have the whole thing.

    erin: I can see how not being free to wander and/or hang out poolside would skew things. Also, getting things done in the oppressive heat with that many people sounds like no fun at all.

    Leno was… okay. His whole standup routine is “current events” and most of the jokes were recycled from his shows, and spanned “news” over the past 6-8 months. The audience were all about twice as old as us though, and they seemed to like it. But hey, free is free, so I can’t really complain!

  3. Let me know when you plan to go next (or vice versa) and maybe we can socialize a bit down there.

    personally i’m a fan of going during the winter.. less people, cheaper, and cooler.

    The casinos downtown generally have lower limits if you want to risk less money gambling. Or the smaller casinos on the strip.

    I went downtown for the first time last trip, and it has a lot of character. I’m going to try staying in a hotel or hostel there next visit.

    The bus (called ‘the deuce’) from the stripdowntown is only $2 and 20’ish minutes each way. A way better way to commute than that inconvenient and expensive monorail.

    Don’t forget that you can shoot a machinegun (in a gun range) in vegas for $20. You of all people should appreciate that!

  4. I’m down there next in November for DevConnections, then again in May for Interop – not sure how much time I’ll have for socializing, though!

    I really had no idea how much there is to see and do there – we didn’t even make it out of the centre strip, nevermind downtown. All on the list for the next few trips.
