I just got back from Las Vegas and sweltering heat, yet the hotels and streets were packed with sweaty tourists loving every minute of it.
There’s a lot of free things to do in Vegas and you can get rooms inexpensively, especially for what you get. You can get away with a cheap trip in Vegas.
Once you see a show, step into an expensive restaurant/bar/nightclub, or most imporantly sit down at the wrong table, throw the cheap trip out the window.
I’ve been looking at free versus paid lately. You can support free with advertising or other support or you can surround free with compulsions that are painstakingly hard to get away from and often make people happier than the free stuff itself. Vegas is the master of the latter.
My thoughts about Home Media Expo are on the iLetYou blog.
