What’s your favorite place in Vegas?

GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window and Door Expo is back in Las Vegas.

The glass industry seems to spend a lot of time in Sin City. GlassBuild America takes place there every other year. This year alone, Glass Week and the Building Envelope Contractors Conference went back to back there and plan to do so again in 2009. The Glass Fabrication & Glazing Education Conference also met in Vegas.

With so many places to go, including restaurants, shows, sports bars and casinos, it’s always nice to get a recommendation for someone. And that’s where you come in.

Have you had a great meal in Vegas, seen a fantastic show, found a great sports bar to watch and wager, or have a favorite casino? Send an e-mail to with your picks and comments, and I’ll compile a list of favorites for the issue of Glass Magazine that will be available at GlassBuild America.
