Stuck in vegas Poll

I'm stuck in Vegas till 12:10 am no matter what; should I get myself bumped to the morning and go out; or should I just wait?

p.s. lets see if the poll works :-)

Voted to go out, but I just remember how expensive it is to see anything in vegas. I'd take a nap wherever I could find A/C

As a frequent flier, I've ended up in that position more than a time or 2 (I missed a wedding on one unfortunate occasion).

I know the time has passed, but for future reference, toughing it out at the airport is the safest option in the daytime. A rare standby seat may open-up, or another carrier could be negotiated.

Overnight, you can find a really cheap hotel with a courtesy shuttle and get some shut-eye (unless some event has the rooms booked) -- just call around on the courtesy phones if you don't have a cell handy. It all depends on your stamina, budget, and how refreshed you need to be the next day.

I'd go into town. Just call ANY of the hotel/casinos and they will pick you up and take you back. It's a short ride. Walk around since it willl be cooler at night. Watch the fountains at Bellagio. Walk through Paris and the Venetian.

Vegas Baby!
