Continuing my report begun in Global Gaming Expo 2010 (Day 1):
Our first day at the trade show wasn't too eventful. We took the monorail and arrived only a few minutes late, which is good for us. Our booth was actually in a decent location this time--not in the far rear corner next to the vacuum cleaner salesman.
I had to get us a trash can, which gave me a chance to walk the floor. I saw a couple of politically incorrect slot machines:
1) The Temple of Moolah features a South Seas Island native girl wearing a grass skirt and a bone through her nose. She's standing in front of a Maya style pyramid.
2) Another unnamed slot machine has primitive African warriors, including one with a Plains-style headdress, and wild animals.
After my brief walkabout, I stayed at the booth for the rest of the day. Foot traffic was moderate but a few old friends came by to keep us company, so it wasn't unpleasant.
Victor left early, so I took the monorail back to the hotel and browsed the news for an hour. Then I took a cab downtown to the Golden Nugget for the annual gaming writers' dinner. The Golden Nugget doesn't look like much from the outside, but it has a stylish interior.
We had a nice dinner at Vic & Anthony's Steak House. I consumed a 24 oz. ribeye steak, 12 oz. of Victor's steak, mashed potatoes, bread, and dessert. Finally we headed home.
