    I'm assuming NV isn't a bunch of pussies like PA and I can actually buy beer at a 7-11.
    There is a liquor store very close. I can't speak for NV as a whole, but Las Vegas has booze just about everywhere. It's like Disney World, except no kids and all of the adults have some kind of alcoholic (preferably frozen) drink in their hands at all times.

      You surely see a different Vegas than the rest of us. The place seems, at times, to be just crawling with kids, and plumpish tourists from Kansas and Iowa, looking for the cheapest buffet with the most food.

      There are several liquor stores very close (of course). It's Vegas.

        You can also just ask. Many of the servers are very helpful. Also, many of the buffets have gluten-free choices.

          I always bring something to cook with at con. Surprisingly, my weapon of choice is a rice cooker. It does a hell of a lot more than cook rice (which I don't do at con). I have in fact reheated pizza quite effectively with a crispy (but not burnt) crust to boot. It's amazing how versatile it is. Of course, I also bring dried food (I have a dehydrator) to cook. I have in past years purchased a microwave, but bringing a rice cooker is less hassle than cabbing out to target and is actually more versatile than only being able to heat frozen food. You can cook veggies, rice, stirfry meat, etc. Reheated teriyaki is great!

            Anyone know if the Mardi Gras food court is going to be open, I've heard rumors it closed.

              I totally plan to cook rice in my hot pot this year at con. I have the most sensitive stomach in the world so bland is my best friend.
