And what about booking a 10:15pm flight sounded like a good idea? A tip for those who may not be familiar with McCarran Airport....the security line at noon on any day of the week is hell but if you have an evening flight and show up at 8:15 you'll be at your gate by 8:30.
We stayed at the same hotel as last year, in the Palazzo Tower at the Venetian, and every day I walked through the little "Italian Village" (complete with Gondola rides!). It's so odd to wander through at 7am and see it completely empty whereas heading to dinner tonight there was a show going on complete with jugglers, a "statue," various singers, and a guy on stilts.
Oh Vegas. Get me outta here!
