I’m in the Stardust Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It appears that the Casino will be torn down in November, and a new hotel and casino will appear at the same location. After checking in, and trying to connect to the wireless network, I found the signal too weak to hook up with the web. So I came downstairs, to the lobby – which happens to be right next to the Slot Tournament Area.
Good thing that there isn’t a tournament going on right now.
I’ll be heading back from Vegas this weekend, and I don’t know how much blogging I’ll do while I’m here. Especially if room access continues to be limited – I’m not sure how much incentive hotel management has to solve that problem considering the place won’t be around too much longer. And, I image that this lobby can get pretty interesting when a tournament is going on.
It’s been a fun day so far. I was at the airport in Baltimore at 4:30 am for a 6:45 morning flight, which took almost five hours. I arrived two hours after leaving the East Coast via the magic of changing time zones. After taking a shuttle to the hotel, past empty lots, blinking lights, and a good number of construction projects, I checked in, and checked on internet access. After catching up with email, and looking at some industry news via blogs and other sources, it’s only just getting to be noon.
