Flights, rooms, and meal reservations are all hard to come by (at least at the high end places I’ve tried to book), but worst of all is ground transportation. The cab line at the airport is over an hour and a half wait. I called every single car/chauffeur service in town (I was hoping for a cancellation)… they’ve all been booked since August. In fact, I was told by one company that they’ve been bringing in cars from out of state for the last couple of weeks to accomodate the demand for vehicles, but that it still wasn’t enough.
The only thing I was offered was a Hummer with a driver at $137/hr with a six hour minimum ($822) + tax & gratuity. Yowch.
I can only imagine traffic on the Strip this weekend. I think I’ll stay in town and try not to complain about LA traffic for the rest of the week.
