What happens in Vegas … (access required)

I’ve never really admitted it before, but I just don’t understand all the fuss about Las Vegas. Many of my friends love the city, and love the chance to live it up when they visit. Ho hum. I end up going about once every year or so, because Vegas is a favorite spot for litigation-related seminars and CLE programs. AAJ hosts many of its CLE seminars there regularly, and the who’s who of the plaintiffs’ bar descends upon Vegas for those and litigation group seminars (I bet the defense bar frequents the community, as well). Those who do pharmaceutical and complex litigation have Mass Torts Made Perfect, also set this year for Vegas. I had a conference there on Thursday and Friday of last week. Of course, traveling alone doesn’t really help. Almost any city is better enjoyed with company, but I recognize that I should be able to explore and enjoy a new location on my own without depending on others. And, in most cases, it’s not a problem. But I just don’t understand Vegas.
