It’s about 10 minutes from anywhere on the Strip. That’s a faster trip than it was just to go from EVO2k4 site (CalPoly) to the Shilo Hotel last year. Except this year the event is actually at the hotel, making it a zero minute trip.
That said, if you wanted to go somewhere “fun” last year, you were looking at about an hour in the car. Whee! This year, the Strip is easily close enough for anyone to head down and kick it whenever they want.
Additionally, this hotel is actually a very nice one, instead of the “Motel 6+”-style they were rocking at the Shilo.
Thanks for reminding SRK that even when some aspect of Evo gets better in every single way (more fun city, far better hotel, event connected to hotel itself instead of a 10 minute car ride away), there are still heroes who can look deep inside and find the strength to bitch about it. We appreciate your important and brave contributions.
