Photo by myself in the Hard Rock Hotel, in Las Vegas.
Shiny Harley Davidson motorcycles flank the entrance inside the casino at the Hard Rock Hotel where we're staying, in Las Vegas.
Beyond, you can see one of the many blackjack tables and one of the many, many bars, with tv screens on top. To the left, some of the slot machines.
Mark and I are here for a couple days, before driving to LA. I've never been to Las Vegas (!). It's a bit over the top, to say the least.
The hotel is great, but it's spring break and of course there are tons of crazy kids running around, whooping it up. It's about 70F during the day, and the pool areas are swarming. Meanwhile, the casinos here are open 24/7.
It's also basketball season. Below, a photo of the sports betting area at the hotel, where games and events are displayed so guys can bet all their money and hang out with their buddies.
The sports betting area at the Hard Rock Hotel. Everything you can possibly bet on is displayed on an immense curved screen.
Posts will continue while we're on the West Coast. We're due back in New York on Friday, March 29th.
