    So my boss calls me earlier today to make sure I'm at a meeting tomorrow. Apparently, there is a convention they want to send me to for three days in Vegas. It's supposed to take place in September, allegedly.

    I've never been, but my ill-conceived idea of the place is: casinos and shows featuring AGT winners. Is there anything else to do? How's the golf? Stern related b/c Vegas is where AGT "millionaires" go to die. What's the "urban minority" situation like?

    On a seperate note, $25,000 a year over 40 years!? Fuck you NBC. Fuck you Simon Cowell and fuck Howard Stern with his wig brush.

    Vegas is highly over-hyped. There are only two casinos, but the commercials make it look like there are lots of them. Because it's the desert, there is no golf, but there are three really nice above-ground pools.

    They have a huge Arby's, and it's open 22 hours per day.

    Other than that, it's mostly strip malls.

    How do you have a reputation of 36,000? I'm calling BS on that number.

    This. Plus there are a lot of drunk tourists walking around thinking that they are living the high life.

    Don't know what part of the country you're coming from, but it is going to be 95+ degrees there in September.

    I'd do a Dr. Gonzo type trip if I were you. Bring a friend.

    Take a tip from ol captain frank.... Avoid TPC las Vegas for golf.... Plain course and not worth the money... Do play paiute . its on the Indian reservation so during the drought they tell the state to fuk off and water the course like crazy.

    I prefer Mandalay bay but have also stayed at bellagio..venetian..piazza..Rio..and NYNY. You can kill a day just walking the strip and touring the casinos.

    Consider a side trip to grand canyon..I booked one that picked u up at hotel..drives you to airport..flies you to Indian res on canyon rim...then gives you a helicopter tour and zodiak boat ride on the river . full day tour...pricy bit cheaper than hitting the tables all day.

    From airport... Have cab stop across street from Mandalay at the liquor store for booze and mixers..

    Don't call an escort service....just hang near the slots after 2.... They'll come to you.

    Everything is negotiable.

    In three days, there's barely enough time to explore the hotels. Just go through the attractions and ride the rides - 3 days won't be enough. Also, try the ghost tour - it's filled with old Vegas gangster tales. If you have extra cash, skip the casino and get an escort.

    Gamble, go shoot some guns, fuck some whores, go bowling at 2 in the morn. Vegas is as fun as you make it. It's not the greatest city but what I love is that there's always something to see, someone to talk to.

    Just use Yelp to find restaurants. Anything good has a 100+ reviews.

    If you love gang movies I highly recommend the Mobster Museum.

    This nails it.

    The cirque du soleil shows. Are nice.

    Spend the cash and take the plane/helicopter tour of the canyon.

    It must be the NSA infiltrating the rep system or that admins and owners can rep without it showing up on the rep page.

    We have a lot more flexibility with his system, it's really kind of cool.
