End of DefCon, Deep Fried Twinkies

Filed under: Events,Friends,Places — Cory @ 3:00 pm

After 3 days of talks and general craziness, DefCon 13 came to a close yesterday. After the closing ceremonies we headed over to In-N-Out Burger for dinner. I had never eaten there before, but I must say it was pretty good. Richard has a picture of my first bite of the burger. We spent the next half hour in the blistering sun trying to get a cab, and wishing we had skipped the milkshakes.

Next, my gracious tour guides took me to downtown Vegas where I was able to see The Golden Nugget, Binions, and eat a deep fried Twinkie. After watching for a while, I got in on a couple games of blackjack and ended up $40 ahead, which made it $80 for the trip, so I was happy. We saw some more sights and headed back to the strip, specifically to Mandalay Bay and The Luxor. The engineering and wow-factor of all these places is amazing, everything is enormous!

I’m heading back to the airport in about 4 hours, so the trip is almost over, but it has been a lot of fun. I will be back out here in 2 weeks to meet up with some friends from college and I can’t wait!

  1. Ouch, 30 minutes, I’d feel bad about taking your cab if Richard hadn’t ordered more food.
