What Happens in Vegas...

Makes people not want to go there any more,
Born of carefully crafted slogans — "What happens here stays here" — and smiling, sequined showgirls, the image of a 24-hour adult Disneyland with free-flowing liquor and casino chips is making the tourist destination seem radioactive to companies keen on not appearing frivolous as they seek government bailouts.

In the past two weeks, at least four major companies canceled meetings worth hundreds of thousands of dollars — not because of costs but because of appearances.
They ought to just come to Salt Lake instead. With our "quirky", "outdated", and "unkind to tourism" liquor laws I doubt businesses would have any problems with "appearances".
