Las Vegas update: Great values (Trying to be upbeat here) weeks msg:4210613 2:09 am on Oct 3, 2010 (gmt 0) I was going to my first PubCon this year, but then my niece put her wedding in Tampa right in the middle of it.

If you do a flight and hotel combo on Orbitz you can often get a better hotel than the Sahara for $38 or less per night. It does seem like Orbitz coupons are sometimes not valid for Vegas otherwise they practically pay you to come to Vegas for 5 or so days! wheel msg:4219756 11:33 am on Oct 21, 2010 (gmt 0)
I suspect that Vegas complaining about internet gambling is like the recording industry complaining about writable cassettes. People mostly go to Vegas because it's Vegas (which involves gambling). Gambling online won't stop people from going to vegas. And if it does, well, why the heck should vegas have a lock on the games?
