Las Vegas...not all it's cracked up to be?

I left for Las Vegas on Friday for family business (sister getting married), and got there Friday night. Learned REAL fast how grouchy people there can be. As soon as I left the Terminal to be picked up by one of my other sisters (and her husband) who had arrived on Wednesday with our mom, and another car had stopped in the Passenger Pickup line for barely two seconds before a guard actually screamed at them "GET THE FUCK TO THE CURB!" (they were in a lane). And the drivers in Vegas do NOT know how to drive.
Then there's the Casinos...for all the genius that apparently went into building the town, there apparently wasn't enough left over to design a big enough variety of games. If you go to one casino, don't bother going to any others, you've basically seen all the games Vegas has to offer. Literally, it's the same games in EVERY casino...and mostly slot machines (even the airport had slots in the concourses!).
The best part of the trip, besides the wedding, was the Mirage Volcano "eruption" and the Dancing Water at the Belazzio. We did try to see the Treasure Island Pirate show, but due to high winds at the time, the 7pm show was cancelled (they managed to do the 8pm show, but we couldn't see it because we had gone to see the Volcano, and then I had to be back at the airport at 9pm, for my 11:15pm flight back home.).

I flew through Vegas on my way to FC this year. Even stuck a dollar in a slot machine just so I can say I did. (Didn't win, though.)

I didn't actually see Vegas itself, but I came away from the whole experience feeling like I wasn't missing much.

At least the airport has free WiFi.

You weren't, really. You see one place, you've pretty much seen the whole city...(We stayed at the MGM Grand Hotel.)

Heh. It made me sad to see people get off the plane, walk over to the nearest slot machine, insert bill after bill and sit there the whole time. (Layover was three hours or so.)

Yikes. I had a nonstop there and back (4.5 hours there, 4 hours back) and my neck was sore after both times. Those plane seats aren't comfortable. (First time flying in 22 years for me)
