Wheels Down in Vegas for March Madness

Wheels down in Vegas Thursday morning for the NCAA March Madness tournament and some live poker. Ling and I break away from the daily grind to help stimulate the Vegas economy with Poker, Craps, and Shopping. We used Frequent Flyer Miles on Continental to get here and we have three nights comped at The Mirage. Seems like the casino's are trying to stimulate us.

We arrived around 10:30 am and after we got our luggage we headed for the taxi line, which to our surprise snaked inside the baggage claim area and extended beyond the third baggage turnstile. After we got outside it went around the corner of the building and all the way to the next corner before doubling back and entering the normal taxi line. It took over an hour to get a cab, never had to wait more then 10 minutes before. Needless to say, there is an in flux of spring breakers, college alumni, and degenerate gamblers descending on Vegas.
