Indeed, horrid. But the costs for conventions?is tough to walk away from; 
they've built the city for that. The new convention center handles 6 blocks 
people and is where some huge gatherings occur such as the annual Consumer 
Electronics Show. So if you're inside all day at a conference, walking 
around at 
night can be entertaining (for a short period).

We?usually have to go once every?2 or?3 years. We?try to catch a Cirque de 
(we saw Ka this time) which is usually fantastic.?There are also some very 
art exhibits (last time there was an Ansel exhibit that was just amazing, 
and no 
crowds!). So for a few days, it's tollerable if you don't go outside. And 
is a Kanter's Deli for an amazing Ruben Sandwich and some pretty good 
restaurants (though not cheap).
I would guess that photography in the casinos isn't allowed. My shots were 
guestimate hip shots at f1,4;?only the ones of my wife gambling are in 
The 2 shown were the best of many attempts. 

As?for the O2 bars, I have no frickin' idea...

Nice pics but what a horrible place! WTF is an oxygen bar? A place to 
after you have lost all your money?

And were you actually allowed to photograph in the gambling hall or did you 
sneak those? I remember being kicked out with my camera in Atlantic City in
