I realize that Vegas excels in providing generic but pleasant experiences. I had fun, but not a single thing happened to our group all weekend that wouldn't have happened to anybody else who did the Vegas thing. Same slots, same blackjack tables, same buffets. In fact, even the hotels are, if it's possible, exquisitely generic. The Paris hotel, for example, is exactly what you'd expect: all the kitschiest, broadest elements of Paris condensed into casino decor. Likewise with the Venetian or New York, New York or any of the rest.
Alas, I need to do all the work I didn't do this weekend, so in addition to being my Viva Nex Vegas update this post must also function as "closed until further notice" sign for the Cereal Box. Thus:
CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
Don't worry. I'm up to nothing interesting this week anyway.
