While I was in Las Vegas last weekend, I snapped a few pictures of odd things I saw. The above photo is of the toilet in my room. Just keep away from the holy water.
For many months, I wasn’t sure whether I’d even be able to go to TAM 6 this year, because of job conflicts. I wasn’t able to make the commitment until just a few weeks before TAM. By that time, the convention rate on the official hotel (the Flamingo) had expired. Now they wanted over $200 per night. Holy crapper! (see above) I can’t justify that. I looked around for someplace cheaper. I found the Super 8 Koval just one (very long) block off of the Strip. It was something like $70 per night, so that’s where I ended up. It’s a tolerable place, and it appeared clean. Much to my amazement, the walk between the S8 and the Flamingo was not packed with crack whores, drug dealers, and Elvis impersonators. It was, however, a very long walk in the extreme Vegas summer heat.
But imagine my surprise when I checked into my room and found this:
I saw this sign in the lobby of the hotel. I didn’t eat there. If it really is the best, they wouldn’t need to use irony quotes.
