I'm curious--how many FORTcon attendees have been to vegas before, and how many haven't?
Anyway, I thought I'd start this thread to help any Vegas Virgins get a feel for the place before Friday. Here's my top three tips.
1) Don't be afraid to be seen drinking at 8 am or whatever time you prefer to start. After all, it's past noon somewhere.
2) Join the slot club at your favorite casino so you can get a free meal if you lose all your cash gambling. If you don't care to waste time eating, you can probably qualify for a free baseball cap or cheesy t-shirt after only a hundred dollars worth of play!
3) Last but not least, those boxes you see on every corner that are marked "free, take one" are NOT real etate books, free newspapers, or calendars of events; proceed with caution if you embarrass easily!
