Working Hard for the Money

Cole and I spent last week in Las Vegas at the cycling tradeshow, Interbike. My agency is responsible for media registration, the press room, on-floor media center/tv studio and anything else the media requests.

Highlights included:

*Grand Lux Cafe (Love the spicy chicken flatbread sandwich)

*Super sweet room at Planet Hollywood Hotel

*Watching my first cyclecross race (road bikes with knobby tires, racing over hills and hurdles)

*Planning and executing a press conference for Lance Armstrong

*Meeting the more than 500 media folks I have been registering/emailing over the past 4 months

*Shopping in the Miracle Mile and the Premium Outlet Mall

*Paying the slots as we waited for our delayed flights (I only lost $6!)

Lance Armstrong himself!


My personal favorite amenity, the LCD above the bath tub.

Wow how fun. I didn't know that that was what you do. What a great occupation.

How fun you got to go to Las Vegas. I love Las Vegas. There is always so much to see there. Your room looked awesome.
