    Are you in Vegas to get Drunk and Gamble or to see CES???

    If you are there go get Drunk and Gamble I would then just forego going to CES as it might get in the way.

    However, if you are there to see CES get plenty of sleep, don't drink too much and get there early before the crowds especially the First Day when you need to get your CES Badge.

    However, after CES on Friday there will still be time to have a drink or two and enjoy the Vegas Entertainment Scene (even though I don't Gamble as I lost a lot of money several years ago being Foolish by thinking I had a chance to win but Vegas is a Place for Suckers according to Steve Wynn who built several Casinos and I choose Not to be one of them)!!! :lol:

    The casinos are not paid for by winners.

    Honestly, I avoid them like the plague.

    Warm is good. :) We'll look forward to seeing you again regardless of the time - you know the number...and you know about Thursday night. ;)
    It will be good to see some familiar faces for sure!
    Sure is - and they still managed to let me back in CES this year despite that photo. Don't make me bring back the Mad Max photos from past archives here..or even the infamous sweater shots.... :lol:
    Rich --- I didn't say it...I didn't say it.... I may have thought it....but I didn't say it. :D
    Quite true...quite true...and you would know better than most for a good reason. ;)

    Some of us are very good at multi-tasking. I've managed to do all 3 several times (and played a round of golf one year too). Granted, I wasn't at CES all day, but 4-6 hours is all I can handle of CES in a given day anyway (regardless of how much sleep and/or water I get), as these old injury ridden legs can't be upright that long.



    PS. In 20 years of going to Vegas (2-3 times per year, including one 2 year stretch when I was there 20 times), my winnings exceed my losses.

    According to Steve Wynn who built The Wynn, The Encore, The Mirage, Bellagio and other Casinos you are One Rare Bird!!! :lol:

    To each his own but I Prefer to spend my hard earned money on Shows and Food Buffets but that's just me.

    I actually like to watch people Gamble and when they Lose Big Time I feel so Lucky and Happy that that guy wasn't me.

    Anyway, Vegas is a Hoot and I just love looking at the Eye Candy as I am a people watcher and there are all kinds there doing their thing.

    In all my time there, I've never been to a show and never eaten at a buffet.

    I mainly live on Sbarro at Bally's.

    I have eaten Sbarro's many times at the Bally's and I just Love it, Great Pizza!!! Pepperoni, Sausage and Extra Cheese!!!

    Love the Shows such as La Reve, The Beatle Love Show with Cirque du Soleil, Frank Caliendo (front row seats with HDTVFANBOY), Penn & Teller, Jay Leno, Terry Fator, etc. and they were all Great.

    In fact the wife and I saw La Reve twice and it was as good the second time as the First.

    Maybe we will. Only about 200K folks. :D

    Lets make it a foursome. Count me in too. Would like to say Hi to all.


    Also, yesterday I posted a second badge showed up. Today would you believe a third one showed up? And it says Exhibitor on it. Don't know how I scored that.
