In all fairness, we have to give VM credit for trying to entertain 10k + people. Taking out a whole floor of a casino sounds just as good !

Sorry if I sounded cynical or negative, I do give VMware credit for trying to arrange a "party" event of this magnitude. I was at VMworld 2006 where they rented out Universal Studio's for the night, it was a blast. I was just commenting that riding a roller coaster or going in a simulator after a few drinks is not exactly the same as potentially driving after a few drinks. Of course, just because we are going to be at the race track doesn't mean they will let us drive...

I think your right, besides I am sure there are some waiver forms that need to be signed, imagine trying to sign something after a few drinks ? My thought is, they are going to have some type of show planned ( band and drivers ). There is no way imaginable to get all those people into cars ! ( Although they do do that when they truck us to the party.... )

Anyone else have ideas on where else to go in the area to spend half a day ? I doublt I will head to GCanyon, would prefer something closer....

Hoover Dam is a recommendation though you will need to take a bus tour to get there or rent a car as the dam is located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas on US Highway 93 at the Nevada-Arizona border.

People generally to go Vegas to gamble, or to see the shows... There is not much else to do in Vegas. Outside of Vegas you have Glen Canyon, Lake Meade, Hoover Dam, and the Grand Canyon, but any of those will involve a drive. Most of the hotels probably have packages of things to do, you might want to check with the hotel you are staying at. Even if you don't use the hotel package, it still could give you an idea of what there is to do.

Okay, okay... this is getting a bit racy for the VMware Community forum. There are other more appropriate forums for "Virtual..." Smiley Wink

From what I recall from last year's event, it was way overcrowded inside the makeshift airport hanger, so maybe having virtual people would be a good idea ? We can Vmotion people to other venues ?
