    Re: $100 bills vs. $20 bills

    I'd break them if you could. A lot of the vendors were asking for $1s and $5s if at all possible as it got late in the day, and were having trouble even breaking a $20.

    Re: SAHARA

    Yeah, no different from pretty much every year. I was actually surprised that I was able to get in fairly deep without too much trouble for some of the late sets.

    Re: What was up with the shuttles this weekend?

    There was definitely some weird shit. At one point they told my friend that the first shuttle wasn't going to run until like 1:30 from her hotel -- they're always supposed to start at 11.
