back again

I am back in las vegas for march madness having arrived last night, March 17th, to the quiet rustic country sounds of las vegas. not. I imagine that St. Patrick's day is not the night to come to las vegas if you plan to sleep easily in a hotel room despite being 23 floors above the strip.

If the economy is affecting las vegas there were no discernible signs last night. My hotel was completely sold out, the lines at the registration counter were large and the armies of revellers on the strip something from a Saturday night at the height of prosperity. I heard a police officer chatting with a visitor and caught a piece of the conversation. "This never gets old" he said as he negotiated the walkway dodging a remarkably diverse population of people in green.

Las Vegas this weekend is hosting a beer distributors convention. Go figure.
