Working in Vegas? Our New Favorite Place To Fire Up The Laptop

Our go to place for WiFi on The Strip is usually the food court at the Venetian. For starters, the connection is free and we don't even have to buy a cup of coffee to use it. The connection is steady, we've never experienced the connection being down and, being bandwidth hogs, it's important that the connection is fast. Most importantly is that there are outlets for us to plug in our computer. We could find the same WiFi access next door at the Palazzo, but there aren't the outlets to keep our laptop juiced. We like the juice.

Last week, we found a way to step up our work experience at the Venetian. The Cantor Gaming sportsbook has its own free WiFi connection. The connection zips since there aren't many people using it. While we don't really like sitting at the red work stations when we're just there to watch games, they come in handy if we want to work. Underneath some of the workstations, you'll find outlets to keep the laptop charged. Most exciting about setting up shop in the Cantor Gaming sportsbook, is that we can keep an eye or ear on the games on those beautiful TVs.

This is a pretty fun way to spend a day working on The Strip, especially if you happen to be at the sportsbook for mid-week baseball games. Mid-week day baseball isn't very popular so there should be plenty of free space with little distraction. The only thing that would make the experience better would be if there were cocktail waitresses taking drink orders. Unfortunately, we didn't see any.

All of the Cantor Gaming sportsbooks should have WiFi, but we've experienced spotty service. The WiFi at the Hard Rock sportsbook was non-existant the last time we were there and a friend tells us that the new sportsbook at Palms wasn't entirely perfect on the day it opened, either.
