The first time I went to Vegas was for a work thing – a convention and product expo to promote the newest wave of technology in the industry.
I was eager to volunteer for the trip, and was surprised no one was interested.
The other guys in the office were all a bit older, and had no interest in traveling. I was stoked about it, because I got to fly across the country, stay in a nice hotel, and experience legal gambling, and the office was going to pay for it all. Well, they weren’t paying for the gambling, but they covered everything else. I didn’t gamble as much as I thought I would, because Las Vegas has so much other amazing stuff to offer. Besides, I lost three hundred bucks on blackjack my first night, so I learned the harsh lesson that in Las Vegas the house always wins! From the casino I walked around the block to find one of the many excellent cannabis dispensaries Las Vegas has to offer. A couple grams of top-tier marijuana made me forget all about my bad luck in the casino. The rest of my first night in Vegas was spent simply walking around, taking it all in. There is a garish majesty to the city of Las Vegas, and I have to say that the buzz I had from cannabis made the neon look so much brighter. I did manage to attend most of the work functions I needed to, but most of the weekend was spent prowling Las Vegas and having a grand time.
