    Anyhow.. While looking around I found this VR view of a convention room there.

    VR View of a Convention Room at Riviera
    Looks a bit small, but that does appear to be an airwall on the right, might make it big enough for a small talk, but I hope there's something bigger.

    And that's the $64K question. I hope that things are mutual and that both sides cut slack

      • Dates for Defcon?

        Hey all I see alot of great discussion about the place, but have dates been released yet for DefCon 14? I am thinking of reserving a time share and need to try to reserve it as far out as I can :-)

        Thanks for any info!

          You know this could be stretching things a bit but I imagine DC14 will be somewhere in early August maybe within the span of 3 days, that is if it is not cancelled which has been known to happen.

          • damn. That convention room VR reminds me of the Marriot in Ventura. Now that was a hell hole of an experience.

                Hm. I do not think you have the right dates. Aug 1-3, 2006 is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
                2006:
                Code:
                        July                 August              
                Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa  Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa 
                                   1         1  2  3  4  5
                 2  3  4  5  6  7  8   6  7  8  9 10 11 12
                 9 10 11 12 13 14 15  13 14 15 16 17 18 19
                16 17 18 19 20 21 22  20 21 22 23 24 25 26
                23 24 25 26 27 28 29  27 28 29 30 31
                30 31
                It is more likely to be July 28, 29, 30, but this is just an educated guess, not an informed one.

                Looks like I am wrong. See the post below with a link to the published date.

                  Defcon 14 is August 4-6.
                  Here is the link
                  Unless it isn't cancelled already.

                  • I was looking at Expedia to compare the room rates at AP post DEFCON. Looks like they'll miss us.

                    DEFCON 13 Rates
                    $139.00 $139.00 $139.00

                    Proposed rates for same room during DEFCON 14 (but wiithout DEFCON)
                    $102.00 $102.00 $71.00

                    Assuming they sell out all 500 rooms--which was a lock with DEFCON--the difference is $71,000.00. Since the Expedia rates include a commission, the true difference is more than that.

                    PLUS, we drank like fish,

                      My apologies. I must not have been very clear as to what I meant to say. Riviera doesnt have many children(or maybe it does, but I havent seen many of them when I went there, with the possible exception of the arcade right next to the food court), but Circus Circus does, and I was actually referring to Circus Circus- especially near the Adventure Dome...

                      Binions for $25? When was that?!?! Binions isnt that bad, compared to some other very shady hotels around downtown.

                        During the summer, it's easy to find a midweek downtown room for under $30/night. And unlike AP, The Riviera is an easy bus ride from downtown. Just take a 301 or 302 (express).

                        BTW: The downtown hotels on or just off Fremont are just fine, however, you might stay clear of :
                        The Western (don't stay there),
                        The El Cortez (nice in the daytime), or
                        The Gold Spike (a heck of a lot of fun and my home for DEFCON 10)

                          Umm, why are you saying to stay clear of a hotel you liked?
                          Just curious,

                            Because big chopper obviously wants the opportunity to escape us "Defcon types" while sleeping.

                              Wow...how did you figure that out? You must be psychic. BTW, I agree with Dropkick Murphys, Queen, and Misfits...although that last tour felt like a good Misfits cover band...

                                I completely agree except for the dates that danzig played with them although I did not get to see them then. I almost went up for the save CGBG Misfit concert in August but I just could not let myself blow a bunch of cash for it. Heh Agent of Orange, R.E.M. has a good song about that, now if I could only remember who else sang about Agent Orange (obviously besides Agent Orange the band) ...I guess I could use wikipedia to find out but that would take the fun out of it. This is gonna bug me all night.
