You know, it's weird, but I was thinking a lot about Las Vegas today. I'm not sure why, except that of course I had an amazing time on both visits this year.
I suppose a part of it is that it's so not for real, and I stayed in some rather luxurious places. All of the excess that goes with Las Vegas really gives you a break from real life, because it's so over the top. I guess a part of me is looking for a break from real life. Fortunately I've got a few of those in the future.
More than anything, I think the entrepreneur in me wonders how I could get some of that money. An ad agency contacted me once about buying ads on CoasterBuzz, but in the end it would've been too small of a buy to bother. Imagine if I had something bigger to play with. With 36 million people visiting every year, I'd like to think there's a market there for something.
And hey, everybody's a winner at Caesars Palace.
