First of all, there's this place: The Golden Steer. This place is a steak with a side of time machine plus old-school attitude for dessert. The waiter and hostess had both certainly turned heads and heard catcalls earlier in their lives, but now offer leathery smiles and look at the tender, firm steaks with a bit of jealousy. If you're in Vegas, and want to feel what it was like before it tried to be build a mini version of every other city, go here.
Other than that, we walked around a convention and ordered our typical plaid shirts, soft sweaters, checked out new graphics for tee's, and talked denim with some gents. The industry is full of great, normal, hard working people plus those on either side of the pleasant/asshole spectrum. How many sales reps does it take to screw in a light bulb? They'll all tell you they have the best bulb without looking at the fixture and then take 6 months to make it.
