Okay. Back at my laptop, thoughts are swimming around my very tired brain. The best place to start (and to sign off for the night) is: I can't believe the scale of it all.
The Venetian is a colossus, the Mirage is huge, the 100 foot billboards of lounge singers. And I've only really walked around the block.
I want to take pictures but not sure where to start. Oh, second thought: open booze. People are walking around with beer bottles and mixed drinks. This floors me. Growing up in a small town (and having been fined for open liquor once) all I see is liability lawsuits everywhere, but I guess that's the thinking behind it all -- I can sell you the booze, but what you choose to do with it is your problem.
