I live in Vegas, Vegas is a crazy twon, 100,000 extra people here for an event and 8 miles from the strip you don't even know anything is happening.
to undrstand the people who came to the F1 race, one of the prerace problems mentioned this year was they didn't have enough private jet plane parking
I know people who went to the event, one person went to a different viewing area every night ( average ticket price in these area around $12,000)
The area's they went to they said the race was well attended and they remarked on how many very very weathly looking european people attended the race, lots of celebrities and well know Vegas people runningg around as well.
Mondays news headline was "Resort leaders concur: F1 was best Las Vegas event in history"
As every event anywhere, if you want to have a great time, you probably had a great time, if you want to find a reason to be mad, there was probably something that you could complain about.
And for you value minded people, Wynn casino had a 5 million dollar package for 12 people that included the big suite and dinner at Nobu
