Leaving Las Vegas

Hey, that's the name of a movie isn't it?  Well anyway I am leaving Las Vegas today after a slight self imposed delay.  More on that in a bit but first, what have I been up to for the past few days? Well, as you know I have been in Las Vegas for the annual Adobe MAX developers conference so I've kept myself pretty busy presenting, meeting other developers and answering questions about our products.  I found the whole experience very rewarding and hope to do it again. since the conference kept me pretty busy it did mean I didn't get out much during the day.  In fact for the most part I didn't even see outside until after the sun went down.  With my evenings pretty much free I did get out to see some other casinos and the free shows.

Moving on to Wednesday night.  This was the night of the conference party at the Palms Casino.  This was a pretty cool casino and it definately had a much funner feel to it than the upsacle Venetian where I was staying.  Te party took place outside around the pool and inside at the attached nightclub called Rain.  What an awesome club!  As is the rule in Vegas everything has to be bigger and better and this was no exception.  he place was huge, the DJ played great music and the lighting system was the best I've seen at any club anywhere.  The whole lighting truss moved uo and down and they had flame throwers!

On Thursday night the conference was finally over and the remaining Adobe employees all went to Red 8 which is an Asian restaurant at the nearby Wynn hotel and casino. The meal was great in my opinion and we even had someone from China eating with us and he said it was some of the best he had.  After dinner four of us proceeded to see Ka at the MGM Grand.  Ths is one of the many Cirque du Soleil shows in Vegas and was definately a bigger than life spectacle.  In my opinion the stage was the star of the show.  It rotated 360 degrees in all three dimensions.  At on point is goes from horizontal to completely vertical while the performers were on it.  It is probably one of those things you have to see to believe.

Today I went to Red Rock canyon and M&M world which is the beginning of the story of why my flight was delayed.  My flight is about to leave fo real now though so I will have to finish my story later.

Off to New Jersey I go...
