Comin' to Vegas
We're comin' to Vegas for a conference. We're young business owners and therefore are doin' it on the cheap. Driving down from Portland, Oregon actually.
Staying at the old motel Algiers. Heard it was a good basic place to lay your head at night.... that true?
Convention/Expo we're going to is at the Sands Expo Center at the Venetian. Is that something two atheletic 30 year olds could walk or is it too far. If too far, then what's the best way to get to it.
Also, what should we do and not do (I know... big question, but thought I'd see what people thought)
Re: Have you tried Saturday market ?
Saturday market isn't a flea market - I'd describe it as "artist's market" or "local small business stalls". No one-time resellers, and certainly not a place for two big tables of crap from my basement. I'm looking for a hamfest, or a higher-end flea market where educated technology people go to surf through interesting used gear. So far, no good leads. Someone sent me a listing for "The Portland Flea Market at the Expo Center" but Google turns up no meaningful results for describing what, exactly, that is.
