Use Twitter To Get A Taxi Fast At Las Vegas McCarran Airport

Illustration for article titled Use Twitter To Get A Taxi Fast At Las Vegas McCarran Airport

Don't want the debauchery trade conference to wait while you sit around for 30 minutes in the notorious taxi line at Las Vegas's McCarran Airport? Twitter to the rescue.

Frequent visitors will already know that tipping a skycap gives you access to the VIP Yellow #1 taxi line, bypassing the plebes. But, on weekends and during some of the bigger events, even that line can back up to half-an-hour or more.

Instead of waiting, tweet @VegasCabbie as soon as you land. By the time you pick up your suitcase full of Hawaiian shirts he'll have responded and will have someone waiting for you at Yellow #1. Wow, Twitter actually managed to reduce our hatred of Vegas from "abject" to "intense." [via Vegas Chatter]

I don't use the taxis. I rented a Red Shark. In the trunk I had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers.....also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls...but the only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible than a man in the dephts of an ether binge.
